Gerber’s new multi-tool offers uncompromising performance through revolutionary design. The innovative center-axis driver opens to align like a real screw driver, yielding maximum torque and rotation. No productivity is sacrificed with the addition of a 30% longer outboard blade and one-thumb opening sliding jaws. Full size, real tools - the multi-tool just got a reality check.
THE MULTI-TOOL JUST GOT A REALITY CHECK
It's not an act. It's not a fashion statement. The Center-Drive™ is made for real challenges - and works like the real thing - built right here in the USA. Let those other guys pretend to have all the answers. You'll be truly prepared.
WAVE GOODBYE TO COMPROMISE
Second best is nothing to strive for. To trump the multi-tools that preceded it, the Center-Drive had to be real, tough, innovative - and it is. In the inevitable tool to tool showdown, there is no contest.
SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
Talk is cheap. A lab can only simulate so much. The real world is the truest measure of success, or failure. From the job site to the garage, see how the Center-Drive is helping real people triumph over daily challenges they face.
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.
I received this as a gift, an i'm very pleased with it so far, my only complaint is that the driver bit holder (built into the handle) can get in the way of the pliers retracting.
I just received my knife and I love it so far and the features it have. Since I need a multi-purpose tool like this and have purchased those made in China, and have them fail to do what I need them for, I am glad to have an American made tool which can do even more and is well built. I recommend this tool to anyone doing general purpose work and don't want to carry so many multiple tools around.
I love this tool, replaced my Leatherman as my EDC. Love that you an carry the sheath vertically or horizontally. I was nervous to buy Gerber because of the back things I've read on the internet, but this was a great purchase! 4.5 stars because I wish it had scissors, and that the awl had an eyelet (for bushcraft/survival sewing). Still a fantastic, hard use, purpose built tool!
The Center Drive has held up very well to the conditions I have used it in. From fixing the Carburetor in the boat motor, to crimping wire sleeves on leaders, un-hooking fish...just been nice having the one tool on my belt that can handle 90% of the work instead of switching from one tool to the next and losing them along the way. Good multi-tool for everyday use. Favorite feature is the easy one hand opening.
