Legend - Multi-Plier 800 w/ Berry-Compliant Sheath

If you've ever wondered about the stuff that legends are made of, you'd do well to start with stellar stainless steel...such as you'll find in the hardware of the Legend. Consider, too, the contoured aluminum that goes into the handles. And the tactile rubber inserts that insure your steady grip.


These are the primary elements of what is generally considered to be the ultimate expression of the Gerber multi-tool. Being versatile wasnt enough for the guys who designed these tools. No, they worked hard to deliver a level of ergonomics and comfort that is rarely, if ever, seen.


The pliers are spring-loaded, as you'd expect. The ballistic nylon sheath is included, which is no surprise. However the tungsten carbide wire cutting blades are replaceable, which you might not expect.

5 Ops Manager Joe Reich - DEC 7, 2015

Best multi-tool I've ever owned. I snapped the blade in half doing something I shouldn't have been doing and Gerber sent me a new tool. I have cut through barbed wire and chain link fencing with ease. It is very simple to replace the cutter heads and the jig saw blade. Love the feature of adding the adapter head with bits for more functions. I use it daily and would never give it up.

5 Veteran Dave - DEC 2, 2015

I bought a brand new MP 800 prior to my second deployment, used them everyday while deployed and loved them. Unfortunately, I had my sheath attached to a secondary pack and was forced to leave it in a firefight in Iraq. I still miss them, I've since bought others but find myself wishing I still had my MP 800.

5 MP 800 is Great!! CowBoy Andy - SEP 1, 2015

Only bad I can say is the pouch & wire cutters!! Over All i'd say Gerber MP 800 is Great very useful tool!! Thanks!!

5 Fiber Optic Tech Jake - MAY 26, 2015

Love this tool. I have had it for over 10yrs too. Best multi-plier EVER!

5 Corporate Nerd, but really I like the outdoors, really Chris - MAY 14, 2015

After uncountable years of (I am ashamed to say "light") service, the tool never rusted and I only oiled it once a few weeks before it was stolen. I didn't even feel like it needed to be oiled since it worked just as good then as it ever did, but I did anyways since I thought it was just time to. It was sitting next to a $550 wristwatch, but they left that there. Whoever took this knew what he was doing. Sad that I have to spend now an even greater amount to replace it. I wish I knew what a "berry-compliant" sheath was. Perhaps if they put a photo of it up or a description somewhere on the site. I can't imagine having another knife. Very glad to see they still make this. I've used a handful of other multi-tools and none even compare. It's like theirs are ramen noodles and this is the steak dinner.

5 satellite maintain tech. Max - FEB 22, 2015

Really it's a great tools , i was worked with US army in Baghdad, one of them gift to me and i still using it right now after 11 years.
i used it for everything and still in good condition.

5 retired military Marshall Timm - FEB 14, 2015

I have owned and cherished my Legend-Multiplier 800 for aprox. 10 yrs.. Living on a boat, I use it daily. The knife blade is broke but still usable. The spring to the pliers is broken so need it repaired. I'll be calling you all ASAP.

1 Lineman Scottflatt - FEB 14, 2015

Was a good product until the Gerber co stopped warranty on the cutting heads.

5 Owner mechanical repair company Michael Hoover - DEC 12, 2014

Great tool, I have several of them. They are used constantly because it is handy on my belt, and it many times is all the tool I need. I also use a back pack tool bag with a very good assortment of various tools,wrenches, pliers,drivers etc. But this tool is pulled out at least 5 times each day. Yesterday, when to use tool, not in pouch, knew just where I left it , used my back up til I got back to other job site. Great tool!!!

5 Firearms Sales, Gander Mountain. James H. Jones Jr. - NOV 24, 2014

This was issued to me when I was on active duty with the US Air Force as a Weapons Technician on F-16 Falcon Aircraft. I carry it with me every day. There is no better quality tool. I've had others and nothing compares. If you want a very good all around tough tool, this is for you!

1 Don't have one. Conan - NOV 19, 2014

This tool has everything I want in a tool. Why is there no price and "Credentials Needed"?

5 Owned since 2003 Roland - JUN 24, 2014

This tool goes everywhere I go, it is outstanding. I use this tool quite often in many different situations. It is truly the best multipurpose tool I have ever owned.

Gerber tools are my only tools of choice. Thank you Gerber for your attention to detail, the quality you build into each product and your outstanding customer service!

4 Father, Brewer, Chef, mechanic, tinkerer, and creator ryan - MAR 15, 2014

I have a legend 800, and the tasks that I have thrown at it are numerous, and it has performed splendidly, except the one time when the knife blade broke... I have yet to get it repaired as I worried that it would come back as something else instead of being repaired... I had no idea it was still made, guess I'll have to send it in!

5 Outdoorsman keithb1075 - SEP 22, 2013

The legend is hands down the best multi-tool on the planet. I've had mine for 10 years now and it has been a life save multiple times. With the heavy use it has seen, it should be wore out, but nope: still in great working condition everything in tact and even the finish and little rubber inlays have stayed in great shape. Thanks Gerber, you couldn't have fitted this tool with a better name !!!

5 Self-Employed Computer Specialist Sawuwaya - JUL 27, 2013

I have owned a couple of Gerber products over the course of 12 yeas and they have never failed me. I got the LEGEND awhile ago and I love it! I will never own another product but a Gerber. PERIOD.

5 Track Coach Trey - MAY 9, 2013

My Legend is an important part of my college coaching tool box. Writing workouts is the least important part of my job, but my Legend makes the other parts of my job much easier and quicker. It's a great product. Thanks for your support with "problems" with my Legend. Keep making great products.

4 Navy Chief 11chaos - MAR 27, 2013

The Legend has replaced all my other multi-tools. Great stuff!

5 Mobility Officer,USMC-Active BryanD143 - FEB 21, 2013

I own the Legend and it has traveled the world with me. Never let me down. You'll always find a Gerber tool in my kit. Semper Fidelis!

5 Chaos_Tactical Chaos_Tactical wolfsnail - FEB 21, 2013

this is an awesome, very awesome tool. I wish it was available for non military as well.
Thumbs up

5 Product Engineer Loddie Alspach - FEB 12, 2013

I've owned my Legend for 13 years now. I have broken it three times and all three times it was replaced with a new tool. I am a Gerber guy for life. It's a great tool from a great company.

5 Busy in Retirement OSCAR 101 - DEC 29, 2012

I owned a 01515 multi for years and the spring for the pliers broke and sent back for a replacement. Much to my surprise I received a package within 2 weeks. My tool was obsolete and was replaced with the Legend I am so pleased with the Quality and workmanship of the tool. I am like a kid in a candy store. Looking forward to using it for many years to come. Thank You very much for your professionalism A customer forever.

5 Best tool ever Craig - DEC 16, 2012

I have owned one of these for nearly 8 years now and for the first time since owning I finally need to tighten up the screws a little. I absolutly love this Multi-tool. It is easy to open with one hand and having the spring loaded pliers is an absolute must when ou have those hard to reach places and can't use both hands. I have never had to sharpen the blade of the knife and I use this thing religiously. Great tool and very reliable. never had to worry about it breaking. I have even arced a battery with it (on accident) and it still worked great none of the components got welded together just had two nice little burn marks from the battery terminals. Keep up the good work gerber and you will always have my business. I actually just ordered the DMF auto w/ modified clip point blade and the LMF II Infantry in all black. Cant wait to see how those knives perform under the stress of my deployment in afghanistan they are sure to be put to the extreme test while I'm here. Ill make sure and coment on them once I have put them to the grind.

5 Machine repairer lloyd p - SEP 12, 2012

Bought this knife many years ago recently broke the blade sent it back new knife came . what a company!

5 Rescue Swimmer USN, Vetran Chad - AUG 19, 2012

Only multi-purpose tool I would ever need or want!

5 Maintenance mechanic, Vetran Shun - JUL 2, 2012

Just got the Legend as a replacement for a discontinued product. I love it already. Better than the original product, I'm a veteran and now working as part of the engineering staff in a hospital and it very handy keeps me from carry my tool bag around, most of the time I can fix things on the spot. I also have a Gerber knife and I have to tell you I love all my Gerber tools and looking forward to stocking up on many more products before years end. Thanks Gerber first class company and stands by your products like no other company and that's rare these days.

5 Your Title jim - JUN 1, 2012

The best I've ever owned

5 Best Tool i know Honky Joe - APR 1, 2012

Best Tool i ever had in my Hands. Good quality and no nonsense features, excellent manufactured, the exchangeable saw blade is so awesome that i never changed it yet, cuts even glass. The Pliers are tough and the Grip feels comfy and doesnt cut into your Hands, so you can apply a good strong grip. The only negative thing is that i miss Rubberized Surface on the outer Pliers Grip (when Pliers unfolded) sometimes it feels a little bit slippy. Great Tool!

5 SPC, US Army Veal - DEC 24, 2011

Just got one from my supply sergeant, great improvement since the last official issue! I'm the company armorer in my unit and i rely on quick, handy tools to get my job done, whether it's in afghanistan or back here home in the states i'm glad the Army decided to give us these great tools, thanks Gerber!

4 Electronical Engineer / Janitor / Hotel owner Tony - DEC 3, 2011

My favorite multitool! I carry it everyday, it makes those small jobs like tightening a screw, open a package or replace a lamp cord a 1 minute job. Two things could be improved: Extend the philips screwdriver ( .5" is possible). Make the scissors close completely. Overall I love it, 5 stars if above is fixed.
