Problems aren't scheduled in advance, but solutions can be planned for. The Mullet is a compact keychain tool that houses 9 tools to handle those unexpected daily tasks. When accessibility is key, the Mullet answers with the ability to be carried on a keychain, from a belt loop, or through an airport.
The Mullet is a compact, portable multi-tool that works hard and plays hard. Chock full of features to handle the demands of the work day, it easily transitions to a post-work wingman to open up that hard-earned libation.
It seems as though some individuals expect more from this tool than it's designed to provide. I think it's pretty sweet and like the fact that it fits more comfortably in my pocket than the Shard or the Artifact. The built-in clip works great along with the bottle opener. That being said, this is not my only tool and I do carry a Squirt to complement it.
Compared to the Shard this is a way better tool. Better bottle opener and I can actually carry my keys off it if i need to with the hook. As a filmmaker having something I can take on TSA and still use on a shoot with changing Tripod Plates, etc is nice! I liked the shard but had my issues with it that the mullet fixes. Say what you will about the cost, if you liked the shard, a couple more bucks will get you a better tool!
I admire that gerber is working to create inventive products for today's consumers, but if you already carry a Gerber multitool their Mullet is a totally useless product. I've been using Gerber multitools for many years. Their first model with the short pliers was so much better than their competition that there was no comparison. Then they came out with the needle nose version with extra tools in the carry case. It performed many impromptu repair jobs on the road for me and many people it gave me a reputation of being ready to help if needed. I purchased the Truss model a few years ago. It has a good locking system but they forgot the file. That's sad because their file has always been right there when required to clean up dinged bolts or just cleaning up metal burrs. Now they come out with a new tool called the Mullet? Well just my opinion but I feel it's as useless as the old haircut mullet is today. I love Gerber for their quality and customer service but with other pocket wallet style multi-tools with a saw and simple blade with more uses makes the Mullet out dated and the tool most likely to loose your keys as you go through the day getting in and out of your car or easy chair. Plus $10 is over priced for this "tool". I would hate to purchase it and find made in China written on it. Save your money and get a multi tool, preferably one with a file on it. Gerber has many options much more suitable for the multi-tool consumer. I still applaud Gerber on continuing to provide new products for the quality minded consumer.
