As the #1 selling multi-tool platform to the US military, the MP600 series has been to hell and back. Serving those who serve, this tool is built to be tough and accessible. A one-hand opening design is crucial, as is the durable stainless body, the variety of 14 tools, and multiple versions that are specialized for any situation.
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.
I carry a 600 every day. Love the tools. One hand slide and you have a pliers at your service. Plus, the blades and other tools are concealed inside so you don't grasp sharp edges like on a Leatherman. Unbeatable.
I've had two of these for about twelve years. I carry one or the other just about every day. While on active duty I carry one in my duty rig at all times. These are a very handy tool to have available. I've much preferred these over some of the other companies similar tools that I've had. Just need to replace the sheath for both of mine.
Sturdy, solid, great price, always up to the task. A piece I been looking to add to my collection for a long time. There is nothing typical about Gerber, Mr. Consumer.
Like it's a good _tool. But now mine is stuck you can't use the little tools
I have had one of these tools for 5 years and another very similar also by Gerber for 15 years. Every morning when I put my belt on for the day you'll find one of these tools hanging off the side of my pants. It has saved my butt too many times over the years to be caught without. The one handed opening feature is gold! The carbide cutters are a real nice touch too. Keep up the good work!
The pliers are supposed to wiggle, or else they wouldn't move. Gerber, don't listen to this guy, I've used these in the military on several occasions...you guys have my business when it comes to multi tools.
Just got this in the mail today and at first impression there is a lot to like. But once you start to play with it your smile wears thin. The available tools are great but why include a lanyard when more than likely its going to sit in the sheath all the time. Replace it with a working pair of scissors. Secondly the pliers are loose, they wiggle all over the place, not a sign of quality workmanship. The overall feel of the pliers is uncomfortable. It just doesnt sit well in your hand. And finally the buttons which extend the pliers are uncomfortable to use. Overall its good but it possesses the same complaint that I have with most Gerber products good but could be better.
Have had mine for over twelve years wear it every working day. Had to have the sheath replaced as it wore out. Tool still looks almost like new and with little maintenance. Agree about the lanyard but understand why it is there. I believe that it was included to get the Mil spec.
I owned the first generation Black Multi-tool for fifteen years till the cutter developed a flaw and broke. It was Warrenty Replaced with a Sliver version do to at the time Black was not a replacement option. I endorse the Gerber tools product line to everyone interested in my Multi-Tool. Sadly today the cross piont screw bit snapped while dealing with a rust seized screw. Out of the years of use those were the only issues. Very sturdy product.
The Multi-Plier 600 was everything I needed, it is my EDC tool. While camping in the family pop-up I realized during set up we locked the crank in the camper, I stuck my pliers in the crank opening, and used 2 pcs of wood as handles and manged to open up the RV so we could get set up, It is strong durable. I plan on buying a 2nd just in case I loose this one.
had one until the dang thing locked up and wouldn't open (pliers head wouldn't slide out). didn't know about warranty, so I tossed it. also you could not twist with it. not impressed overall.
My squad leader made me tie it down with the lanyard ring in order to keep it on my kit, and therefore I would like to echo previous statements. Had it not had a lanyard ring I would not have had to tie it down.
Sweet tool however, I agree that removing the lanyard ring for something that is actually useful -scissors, saw, even a tooth pick- would be a huge improvement.
This product will be great with out the lanyard ring and adding scissors.
