Butterfly Opening Multi-Tool

Additional Versions:

If you've ever wondered about the stuff that legends are made of, you'd do well to start with stellar stainless steel...such as you'll find in the hardware of the Legend. Consider, too, the contoured aluminum that goes into the handles. And the tactile rubber inserts that insure your steady grip.


These are the primary elements of what is generally considered to be the ultimate expression of the Gerber multi-tool. Being versatile wasnt enough for the guys who designed these tools. No, they worked hard to deliver a level of ergonomics and comfort that is rarely, if ever, seen.


The pliers are spring-loaded, as you'd expect. The ballistic nylon sheath is included, which is no surprise. However the tungsten carbide wire cutting blades are replaceable, which you might not expect.

Works great but the blade and sussors started to rust in the field. Also, the wire cutter attachment broke off while cutting coat hanger wire.

Definitely a top-tier multitool. Comfortable, reliable and tough. Is it the best on the market? Not sure, but it’s up there with the best of them.

Pros: amazing pliers and wire cutters, outstanding scissors. The other tools are about average, but at least they all lock securely and many open one-handed. On a personal note, it’s also very, very good looking.

Cons: pricey. You can get a Charge for the same cost, or a Swisstool for less. The Phillips is comically short. Limited tool selection because of the thick aluminum handles; I’d much rather have a wood saw than the diamond-coated Remgrit monster (what is it even FOR???). No bit-kit, unlike the other high-end tools.

I've had this set for more than 20 years. I use it every day. It was a very valuable tool while I was in Iraq '03-'04. The only problem is the spring for the scissors broke years ago. I wish I could get it fixed. Other than that it's my most valuable tool. Thanks Gerber.

Been using Gerber's for a long time. Knives, machete's and multi tool, I recently broke the pliers off of my, +/- 15 year old, MP 800 tightening up some tough bolts on a duck blind, sad day indeed!
Luckily, Gerber stands behind their products with basically no questions asked. Get rid of your other inferior gear and outfit with Gerber, you will not be disappointed!

Best multi-tool I've ever owned. I snapped the blade in half doing something I shouldn't have been doing and Gerber sent me a new tool. I have cut through barbed wire and chain link fencing with ease. It is very simple to replace the cutter heads and the jig saw blade. Love the feature of adding the adapter head with bits for more functions. I use it daily and would never give it up.

I bought a brand new MP 800 prior to my second deployment, used them everyday while deployed and loved them. Unfortunately, I had my sheath attached to a secondary pack and was forced to leave it in a firefight in Iraq. I still miss them, I've since bought others but find myself wishing I still had my MP 800.

After uncountable years of (I am ashamed to say "light") service, the tool never rusted and I only oiled it once a few weeks before it was stolen. I didn't even feel like it needed to be oiled since it worked just as good then as it ever did, but I did anyways since I thought it was just time to. It was sitting next to a $550 wristwatch, but they left that there. Whoever took this knew what he was doing. Sad that I have to spend now an even greater amount to replace it. I wish I knew what a "berry-compliant" sheath was. Perhaps if they put a photo of it up or a description somewhere on the site. I can't imagine having another knife. Very glad to see they still make this. I've used a handful of other multi-tools and none even compare. It's like theirs are ramen noodles and this is the steak dinner.

Great tool, I have several of them. They are used constantly because it is handy on my belt, and it many times is all the tool I need. I also use a back pack tool bag with a very good assortment of various tools,wrenches, pliers,drivers etc. But this tool is pulled out at least 5 times each day. Yesterday, when to use tool, not in pouch, knew just where I left it , used my back up til I got back to other job site. Great tool!!!

This was issued to me when I was on active duty with the US Air Force as a Weapons Technician on F-16 Falcon Aircraft. I carry it with me every day. There is no better quality tool. I've had others and nothing compares. If you want a very good all around tough tool, this is for you!

This tool goes everywhere I go, it is outstanding. I use this tool quite often in many different situations. It is truly the best multipurpose tool I have ever owned.

Gerber tools are my only tools of choice. Thank you Gerber for your attention to detail, the quality you build into each product and your outstanding customer service!

I have a legend 800, and the tasks that I have thrown at it are numerous, and it has performed splendidly, except the one time when the knife blade broke... I have yet to get it repaired as I worried that it would come back as something else instead of being repaired... I had no idea it was still made, guess I'll have to send it in!

The legend is hands down the best multi-tool on the planet. I've had mine for 10 years now and it has been a life save multiple times. With the heavy use it has seen, it should be wore out, but nope: still in great working condition everything in tact and even the finish and little rubber inlays have stayed in great shape. Thanks Gerber, you couldn't have fitted this tool with a better name !!!

I have owned a couple of Gerber products over the course of 12 yeas and they have never failed me. I got the LEGEND awhile ago and I love it! I will never own another product but a Gerber. PERIOD.

My Legend is an important part of my college coaching tool box. Writing workouts is the least important part of my job, but my Legend makes the other parts of my job much easier and quicker. It's a great product. Thanks for your support with "problems" with my Legend. Keep making great products.

I owned a 01515 multi for years and the spring for the pliers broke and sent back for a replacement. Much to my surprise I received a package within 2 weeks. My tool was obsolete and was replaced with the Legend I am so pleased with the Quality and workmanship of the tool. I am like a kid in a candy store. Looking forward to using it for many years to come. Thank You very much for your professionalism A customer forever.

  • |BY: , Best tool ever

I have owned one of these for nearly 8 years now and for the first time since owning I finally need to tighten up the screws a little. I absolutly love this Multi-tool. It is easy to open with one hand and having the spring loaded pliers is an absolute must when ou have those hard to reach places and can't use both hands. I have never had to sharpen the blade of the knife and I use this thing religiously. Great tool and very reliable. never had to worry about it breaking. I have even arced a battery with it (on accident) and it still worked great none of the components got welded together just had two nice little burn marks from the battery terminals. Keep up the good work gerber and you will always have my business. I actually just ordered the DMF auto w/ modified clip point blade and the LMF II Infantry in all black. Cant wait to see how those knives perform under the stress of my deployment in afghanistan they are sure to be put to the extreme test while I'm here. Ill make sure and coment on them once I have put them to the grind.

Just got the Legend as a replacement for a discontinued product. I love it already. Better than the original product, I'm a veteran and now working as part of the engineering staff in a hospital and it very handy keeps me from carry my tool bag around, most of the time I can fix things on the spot. I also have a Gerber knife and I have to tell you I love all my Gerber tools and looking forward to stocking up on many more products before years end. Thanks Gerber first class company and stands by your products like no other company and that's rare these days.

  • |BY: , Best Tool i know

Best Tool i ever had in my Hands. Good quality and no nonsense features, excellent manufactured, the exchangeable saw blade is so awesome that i never changed it yet, cuts even glass. The Pliers are tough and the Grip feels comfy and doesnt cut into your Hands, so you can apply a good strong grip. The only negative thing is that i miss Rubberized Surface on the outer Pliers Grip (when Pliers unfolded) sometimes it feels a little bit slippy. Great Tool!

My favorite multitool! I carry it everyday, it makes those small jobs like tightening a screw, open a package or replace a lamp cord a 1 minute job. Two things could be improved: Extend the philips screwdriver ( .5" is possible). Make the scissors close completely. Overall I love it, 5 stars if above is fixed.
