The idea is simple: always be prepared. The Dime is a mini multi-tool with an impressive list of features, ensuring you are ready for anything. This butterfly open tool fits on your keychain yet has 12 useful tools. Available in multiple colors and a bladeless version as well.
The idea behind the Dime multi-tool is clear: get a useful series of tools into the hands of those who want to be prepared for trouble at all times. The Dime is a mini multi-tool that suspends neatly from a keychain and provides resource for a wide swath of problem-solving potential. With its ten useful tools, including spring-loaded needle nose pliers, the tiny, lightweight Dime spins out assistance as needed.
SPRING-LOADED FOR BEAR
For people who rely on a multi-tool, the carefully selected range of the Dime’s tool series is a recognizable asset. In addition to stainless steel pliers, wire cutters, a fine edge blade, spring-loaded scissors, flat driver, tweezers, and file, the Dime includes the retail package opener: a unique blade designed to safely cut and score plastic packaging and a bottle opener that is exposed even when the tool is closed.
While this is a keychain multi-tool, the Dime doesn’t skimp on elegance in design. From the smooth butterfly open of its sturdy needle nose pliers to the well engineered, comfortably ergonomic handles, the lithe little multi-tool is at the ready to manage obstacles. Store it in a pocket, a backpack, or keep it on a key ring: the Dime has you covered.
As with the other reviews, the tool is garbage. It is great in theory, but the quality control and engineering falls way short. The blade and scissors are marginal, however the pliers are a train-wreck. The pliers are best used on feathers or butter, as anything else will cause a catastrophic failure. Save you money.
I have had three of these pliers fail on me with very little pressure. If you squeeze too hard trying to unscrew a nut or something similar, the pliers bend the inside of the support in the tool and as such become useless for what I purchase them for. After the last one failed, I tried my leatherman version and it did the job with ease. While it’s more expensive, the leatherman is a much better purchase than buying another gerber dime to fail.
