If you’ve been searching for the perfect multi-tool to become your everyday carry, now’s your chance to get a great deal on an American-made Gerber.
The Gerber Center-Drive Multi-Tool is a personal favorite, and Amazon has a great deal of the day on a bundle that offers even more value. Tuesday only, the Gerber multi-tool EDC set, which includes the multi-tool as well as a tactical pen and dual sheath belt holder, is only $99.99.
So what makes this multi-tool one of our favorites? With the ‘center-drive’ design, the full-size driver sits in the middle of the two handles, allowing for better stability and torque. If you’ve ever tried to use the dinky little screwdriver attachment on a typical multi-tool, you know how much of an inconvenience it can be. This multi-tool fixes that issue.
In addition to a full-size screwdriver, the Gerber has a full-size outboard knife, spring-loaded pliers that slide open with a simple flick of the thumb, a pry bar, a bottle opener, wire cutters/strippers, an awl, a file, and a serrated blade. You’ll also get a set of 12 magnetic bits, but the driver is universal, so you can use bits you already own too. The only thing to be wary of is the size. This multi-tool is one of the larger and heavier models available, so it’s better carried in a sheath on a belt than in a pocket
The multi-tool by itself usually costs over $100, but is on sale for $89.97 (including the bit set and a custom sheath) right now. That alone is a great deal for such a fantastic tool, but the bundle is well worth the additional $10.
If you’re going to spend the money anyway, you might as well shell out the extra $10 to get the additional items. The pen, which comes with a “Rite in the Rain” ink cartridge that you can use in any weather condition, costs $41 on its own. And the typically $37 dual-sheath, the #1 best-seller on Amazon, holds the Gerber and the pen with room for a third item, such as a small flashlight. If you order all three for $100, you'll be saving $65.
