As the #1 selling multi-tool platform to the US military, the MP600 series has been to hell and back. Still inclusive of everything that makes the original great, this version of the tool features replaceable Tungsten Carbide wire cutters. Some situations require a little extra grit.
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.
USA Navy Torpedoman 1975 - 1991, wounded D-Storm 1-22-91 working at a land base on air dropped torpedoes. Excellent tool, have had mine sine early 1980's. I give it a 4 star because my wire cutter is all chipped and if I send it in, I get the new NO CUT replaceable bit one, so I'll just keep mine. My Gerber Tool has helped me take apart and service torpedoes from 7 countries and in all environments. Sure, some parts are worn or chipped, but you still would not me without it. One side says Tool, Pliers,, Multi Use and the NSN and the other side says US NAVY SSBN 608 Ethan Allen Torpedo Shop 1 (Polaris Sub I was on). I guess I'll just have to buy a new one so I can keep this one intact. Just for the record, it saddens me that Gerber hooked up with Bear Grillass, he cheapened up a good product line.
Got mine in 1986 or thare abouts on board USS Enterprise cvn 65 at that time. its a good tool but if you over do it with the pliers it may bite. I have had a couple blood blisters on the web of the thumb.but still better with it than without.Retired 17 years now its still at arms reach at all times.
Been through a dozen of these. Miss the old wire cutters. That new "replaceable" wire cutting thing sucks! Broke the old one, sent it in for warranty and when it came back it had that retarded tungsten rotating "one cut and your done" thing on it! Have at least three different ones for different reasons. Wouldn't be without one. Wore one to several foreign places, heck, even two different weddings of my own. Might give up my gal, won't give up my Gerber. Bear Who? stay away from my Gerber Brit...
This is the best multi-tool I have ever had. Used at home and down range. This tool has never failed to perform. I have looked at and used other brands (SOG, Leatherman, etc.) and they just do not compare to the quality and price of a Gerber. This tool just feels right in your hand. Not to mention the one handed opening/closing and the Saf.T.Plus locking system are great features. Gerber fan for life. I am going to order a few of these as Christmas presents this year.
Love this tool have used it time and time when it has more then paid for itself.
Goes everywhere and does everything. Very stout. The pliers can grip very well and can take a lot of pressure comfortably. My only problem is the wire cutters. Although they do work very well, the first time I tried to rotate them for a fresh cutting surface, the entire "tungsten carbide" insert snapped in half with very little force.
My wife and I both have the 600and are never with out them.I've had mine repaired twice having broken blades acually abusing it ,and had repairs done in a timely manner. That only problem was I was without my favorite tool!
They say everyone remembers there first girl, amongst her I remember my first Gerber. I sill have it to this day after years of abuse (the earlier model of shown tool) and use it almost daily. Its one of a kind single handed slide is ingenious and absolutely useful for quick engagement. Not to mention the strength, its been through hell on a summer day and back and still operates like the day i got it. Only draw back i had was that its slightly bulky in the pocket, and unfortunatley the person i bought it from did not have the sheath for it. If you were considering buying a Leatherman or the Gerber, its a no brainer, Gerber always. Cant wait to get a new one, and be able to gift my old one to a future Gerber fan.
Looking at purchasing a new Gerber multi-plier. I had mine issued to me while still serving back in 1996. This tool has definitely had better days. I have had it on my side ever since and will keep it there until I receive my new Gerber.
I was issued these several years ago and they have been on my belt ever since. We've gone into combat twice and I've completely disassembled, repaired, and reassembled entire weapon systems with just this tool. I absolutely love the strength of the tool and have tested every aspect of it beyond what it probably should be able to take and you'd be hard pressed to tell it was several years old. The sheath is also in perfect condition and it has been beaten and bruised quite often in the desert and in the US. I've had my fair share of multi-tools and I would not buy anything other than this unless it was the needlenose version.
Had a set of these for my flight gear. Used them for everything, never failed me ever. When I retired had to turn in everything. Miss having these. Great multi-pliers.
