Multi-Plier 600 - Needlenose Black w/ Carbide Insert Cutters, Berry-Compliant Sheath

We can think of about 600 reasons why this much-applauded multi-tool belongs on your belt. But don't worry, well just stick to the most important ones here. Like profound versatility, for example. And fail safe performance. And a level of rock-solid design and construction that pleases the eye and satisfies the soul.

It all begins with high quality stainless steel. Then we incorporated Gerber's patented one-handed opening pliers. Top that off with our patented replaceable tungsten carbide wire cutters . When the cutters become dull or misshapen simply rotate the tungsten carbide cutters 120-degrees, and you've got yourself a good-as-new wire cutter. After three rotations, the entire cutter can be replaced.

You'd be hard pressed to find a more rugged or more fearless multi-tool out there. But go ahead and look around a bit. See what you think. Then come on back to Gerber and pick the Multi-Plier 600 that truly suits your needs. We're building plenty.

Bought this for my brother in the NZ army and he takes it everywhere. Loves it. I reckon the ring tool is to be able hang it up by a nail in your workshop

5 Your Title Ajax777 - NOV 27, 2013

Need replacement carbide.

4 Your Title j. - NOV 27, 2013

I have one, and, I absolutely love it!

However, the carbide eventually broke and looking in the industrial section of this website, I found replacement carbide, but it doesent specify if it's for my tool, and has an incredibly overall low rating.

5 Security Kevin - NOV 7, 2013

I have a Gerber Berry-Compliant Military Multi-Plier 600 - Needlenose Black W/Carbide Insert Cutters. I sent Gerber a message regarding new Carbide Insert Cutters. I received a new set within a week at no charge. GERBER TAKES CARE OF CUSTOMERS!!!! THANK YOU GERBER & GOD BLESS!!!

5 SrA in the Air Force zac - OCT 6, 2013

The little ring tool, can be used as a place to tie some 550, or any other line that will fit, to the multitool, and use the multitool as a weight or anchor when trying to throw the 550 (line) over a limb to hang something. or something like that. Also the point on the end i believe, is an awl (spell check?) so you can scratch "engrave" something. And to use it to attach the tool to a pack.

5 Project Manager Shane - AUG 18, 2013

For Pete: The "ring tool" is a wire stripper. I used mine a bunch when I used to be an I.T. guy running networks in the field. Unless you're leading a Signal unit, you probably wouldn't have a need for it... :-)

5 SSG in US Army Pete - AUG 14, 2013

This was a very useful tool in both Afghan and Iraq when I deployed. Helped me get a lot of the small annoying tasks done with my soldiers and even proved its worth during combat when a weapon would malfunction. I have used every single component here to its fullest, except one: The ring tool. I have never used it but for 1 function and I never fully understood its function. I told my soldiers I did not have the slightest clue, but I use it as a small tool to hang it to my gear.

Does anyone know its true purpose?

5 Canadian Soldier (Armoured Reconnaissance) Chris Lekkas - JUL 19, 2013

Great multi tool, never failed any of the soldiers in my troop.

3 commo john - JUN 14, 2013

Broke the plyer working on a generator last week, only issue I had with it wish the plyer wasn't hardened, other than that great tool. Also the phillips tip in the deasle multi tool seems to be more flexible as far as scrue sizes.

4 US Navy Retired eric - JUN 13, 2013

i received this as a gift from my son who is active duty army. It 's a great knife around i use it daily and when i go fishing. The only problem is that the stitching at the velcro closure is coming apart and i had to staple it together. is there anyway i can get a replacement case?

5 fireman / us military Tony - MAY 31, 2013

I find this tool expertly put together. I got mine during my deployment and continue to use to it today as a firefighter. the carbide tips broke while we cutting a victim out of an entanglement but other than that the tool has done its job very well. thank u

5 Mr. William Dorsey - MAY 30, 2013

Had on for over 8 years. Bought it when i joined the military. Best thing i ever bought. Lost it when i moved. Love to have another one!

5 Desert Dog Jer Min - MAY 28, 2013

Have carried an old-style 600 since forever (90s). It's easier on the hands than the exposed tools of a Leatherman. This tool has literally saved my ass more than once... in the sand and on the ranch. Managed to destroy it once and they replaced it. Broke the tip off a blade some years ago - Didn't have time to send it in for repair so I just reshaped and resharpened it, and it's still cutting. Have now worn out my 2nd sheath. The lining is tattered and the hole at the bottom is getting big. A new sheath should give me another 7-8 years.

5 The Man Jeff Robinson - MAY 13, 2013

As a photographer/computer geek /hard head who grew up in Fayetteville North Carolina,Home the 82nd Airborne, Green Beret and Special Forces in the 70's, this tool has been on my hip for the last 17 years. It is never failed me, and continues to prove it's point. Mine is so old that it still has patent pending on it. Love It

4 outdoors man Marc - MAY 7, 2013

everything is real good quality except for one thing on this. the lanyard it is completely useless. its awkward if you were to use it and their is no other use for it. another more useful tool cold be in its place.

3 US Army Perry - APR 30, 2013

I love the Gerber tool, unfortunately in using it for my everyday jobs, I broke the wire cutter piece off, which for my job is needed, other than that the tool is SOLID and still working great!

5 the 600 series needle nose Daniel criswell - APR 25, 2013

i have had a pair of these for about ten years before they wore out. that's the best i have ever gotten out of a pain of these kind of pliers. i will never get another brand leather-man can not even compare.

5 Tristan JON - MAR 19, 2013

The Cutters did break but to be perfectly honest i put them thru hell and then some the than that excellent quality

5 Good tool LAV - FEB 20, 2013

Combat arms, 3 deployments, same tool. Still strong.

5 Former Legionnaire Jean-Claud - JAN 10, 2013

Great everyday use tool....the only one worth being in my kit. Only the best will do for me.

5 US Marine Kyle Renz - DEC 20, 2012

Amazing tool, used it every day on my deployment and even after I have got home. Never had a problem with it yet. Its Solid!

5 Avid outdoorsen Eagle scout - DEC 14, 2012

I Received this tool from a marine who gave it to me at a yard sale because he said that scouting was a great program, and he'd receive another one on his next tour in 3 months. Needless to say this tool is amazing, i've use many leatherman and they don't compare, actually lost my tool in the snow over the winter and found it in the spring a little rusty, but fully functional.

5 Australian Army CPL Joel - OCT 6, 2012

Great tool, just wish you could ship to Australia again.

5 Iraq Lee - OCT 6, 2012

like most people I got mine issued to me when I deployed. I used it almost every where I could, it was very useful.
I haven't had any problem with it so far of using it 2 years

5 Lance Colonel Ivan - SEP 22, 2012

The tool to have whether in garrison or out in the field. Don't loose this baby

5 Mr Retired Fireman & former Marine Richard Sommers Jr - JUN 21, 2012

I bought one of your tools back in the late 90's or early 2000's. I have carried it nearly everyday since then. On and off duty. In the field and in the fire station. It is a great tool and I don't have the time or space to tell you how many uses I have found to use is. It has really held up well but for one thing. The sheath has a hole in the bottom and I have not been able to find a replacement for it. If you would tell me where I can purchase a replacement sheath I would be very grateful. I am worried that I will lose the tool through the hole. Thanks for your help,
Rick

4 US Marine John - MAY 27, 2012

"Kleenex" means tissue. "Xerox" means photocopy. Among Marine infantrymen, "Gerber" means multitool.

This tool is why.

I bought mine before my first deployment to Iraq and carried it everyday for the last 7 years.

Pros:
Rugged and dependable.
Low profile design makes it easy to carry on a belt, on a vest, or in a pocket.
One-hand slide makes it easy to get open in a pinch.
Knives and cutters are razor-sharp right out of the box.
Tools are secured tight and can take repeated abuse.

Cons:
Rust is this tool's nemesis. It would benefit tremendously from an anodized coating. If you use this anywhere it rains, snows, or gets a sea breeze clean it often. If you get this tool wet, clean it right away.

1 Soldier Jeff - MAY 21, 2012

Cutters break too easily. And $20.00 to replace? A rip off

5 Boom Headshot Ryan - APR 5, 2012

Love this tool does everything I need it to and more

2 Now I wish I had military credentials Steve - MAR 10, 2012

I want one

4 army josh - FEB 12, 2012

was issued this on my way to "the stan" not really sure how i would have been sain without it, again the only draw back is the blade's edge but once sharpened it seems to hold it even after alot of use..... having been on multiple deployments plus just being an active duty soldier finding gear such as multi tools and knifes that last has been an on going battle but gerber seems to get it right thanks guys

3 Truckie Brian - FEB 6, 2012

I have been issued a Gerber multi tool on my deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and as much as I love having it and how useful it is, I have come to find that they are not very durable. Mainly the pliers jaws and the carbide cutters always break. Thank god there are plenty of people who leave them laying around.

5 US ARMY SFC37F - DEC 30, 2011

The current Army Gerber multitool issued to troops getting deployed. Comes with ACU sheath with Molle Clip. Carried it in Iraq and was totally used by me and the Iraqi security forces who were with us. I figured it would be "borrowed" and not get "returned" at some point. But it managed to make it back to it's sheath clipped on my body armor. Cleaned it once in a while with WD40. Opens easily with one hand and it's very durable. Some prefer the Leatherman but I prefer this as it's free and it has all the right tools needed by soldiers. I carried mine with my issue Surefire Centurion C2 flashlight. And my trusty Gerber Shard. Thanks Gerber for steadfastly supporting the military. :)

5 82nd ABN Fmr. Medic - DEC 21, 2011

Got issued this for Iraq and then again for Afghanistan.It is a MUST HAVE TOOL... very durable. One hand open is awesome.

5 Claymore Mike - OCT 18, 2011

The first time i saw a Gerber was in the movie Blowen Away. I was an Army Parachute Rigger and the Letherman was just too clumsey. I have had a Gerber by my side since the 1990's and would not have any other tool. Now im a Maintenance Tech and i can us

4 Sapper CDN Military - OCT 14, 2011

I quite like this gerber. The one hand opening especially helps, if one finds that rust is an issue just spare a little bit of oil from your weapon on it. Any 3 in 1 oil or CLP type oil will do for a non military user.

1 Sr. Chainsaw - OCT 2, 2011

Another poorly manufactured tool from Gerber. The tool is loose and rickity. Rusts easily and is not nearly as smooth as a Leatherman.
