The Center-Drive Plus is an elevated version of the category-defining Center-Drive multi-tool, an evolution that holds true to the benchmark tools and adds some highly-requested features to the line-up. The purposeful one-thumb opening design remains for quick deployment to the tools you depend on most: the spring-loaded pliers, the full size blade, and the full size, center axis screwdriver.

  • New to the Plus are the spring-loaded scissors, a welcome addition to reduce the number of tools needed on hand
  • The partially serrated blade is full size and capable of handling a variety of materials and tasks
  • All tools are tumble finished for a sleek, polished aesthetic that doesn’t sacrifice performance
  • The American made, Berry-compliant full leather sheath has a snap closure to ensure secure stowage as well reliable performance

Screw conventional thinking.

It seems so obvious – but until now no multi-tool has ever offered a full-size driver on the center axis with a standard bit. The result is all the ergonomics and torque you’d expect from the real thing, ready at the flick of a thumb.

Cut the B.S.

Get right down to business. A single flick of the thumb gets you access to a full-size outboard knife that is 30% longer than the competition. Don’t worry; reverse thumb support gets the job done in confidence. No compromises – in no time.

Bend it to Your Will.

Adjust to your environment, or force it to adjust to you. It’s your choice. One-thumb opening sliding jaws deliver instant command of the spring-loaded pliers, so you can take control of whatever’s at hand.

For starters, I've had the same luck with the cutters. I've given up trying them on stranded wire, just creates a mess and I've had more luck trying to tear zip-ties with the pliers than cutting them. I've also run into the pliers handle bottoming out on the bit-holder when trying securely grab thin material, preventing sufficient pressure from being applied. Can be resolved by flipping the bit holder out if needed, but could still be addressed. The knife is great, unfortunately I can't carry the tool with it attached in a corporate setting so the bare blade sits in my desk at home. If Gerber ever came out with a model that replaced the blade with a small-gauge wire stripper (literally precision grind a few gauge-specific holes in the same scissors) I'd buy it in a heartbeat, would also resolve the cutter issue (wink, wink...). Finally, the main reason I bought this tool in particular was the driver and I can honestly say the functionality outweighs any of the tool's downsides. Far superior to any other design I've used in a multi-tool and the standard bit size allows me to utilize security bits that aren't an option with other proprietary bit designs. Well done

Love the center drive screw driver but the wire cutters are weak and the pliers are made of cast metal. I broke mine while using them.

Gerber is the best multi tool I have owned, I have 2 Gerber multi tool knives. The only reason I have 2 is my wife bought me the newer style multi tool knife. I have used my first knife for just short of 15 years and it is still in good working condition. This is the best knife to have on the worksite are use mine daily .
