Product Description

You'd be hard pressed to pack this many tools into the space that the Gerber MP800 Legend Multitool takes up. Inside this impressive little package, you'll have access to no fewer than 12 tools, including tungsten carbide-steel blades. All the hardware is stainless steel, mounted on a nickel-coated die-cast aluminum handle. The zirconium nitride hard wire cutter insert has three edges, and it's replaceable, so you'll never be without a laser-sharp edge. It also includes spring-loaded pliers, combination edge and serrated drop-point knife blade, scissors, Fiskars scissors, and more. But being versatile wasn't enough, and Gerber worked hard to deliver a high level of ergonomics--from the contoured aluminum to the tactile rubber inserts that insure your steady grip. The MP800 Legend Multitool measures 4.29 inches when closed and 6.57 inches when fully open, and it weighs 9.8 ounces. It comes with a ballistic nylon sheath, and it's backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The 12 fully locking components include:

  • Needlenose pliers
  • ½ fine / ½ serrated edge knife
  • Remgrit saw
  • Fiskars scissors
  • Philips driver
  • Small flat driver
  • Medium flat driver
  • Large flat driver
  • Bottle opener
  • Can opener
  • File

As a building superintendent, I wear a multi-tool every day on my belt, and use it often. I was really looking foward to getting the Gerber because it offered two main features that I wanted - a one-handed opening blade, and tools that all lock open. With all the multi-tools being manufactured today, it's amazing how few offer these two crucial (for me) features in a single tool. The Gerber Legend is the only tool I'm aware of that has both a one handed opening blade and tools that all lock open. If anyone reading this knows of another tool that has both these features, please let me know.
Let me first say that Gerber has made many great innovations with this tool. The rotateable/replaceable inserts for the wire cutters is a great idea, along with the replaceable jigsaw blade and the spring-loaded pliars. Having said that, I'll organize my review into two categories - Major Mistakes and Niggles.
Major Mistakes - The pliars don't open wide enough. The very tips of the needle-nose pliars don't even make it an inch apart---15/16ths to be exact. To get into the teeth of the pliars, you need to be 5/8ths inch or smaller! Compare these numbers with the Leatherman Super Tool's 1 3/4" opening at the tips and a full inch-plus at the teeth. I feel that the small opening of the Gerber pliars will disappoint many people - you simply won't be able to grab a lot of stuff you'd expect to be able to. Personally, if I can't take off a shower-head or fawcet aerator with it, that's much of the usefulness of the pliars gone right there. Major, major mistake on Gerber's part, especially when (seemingly) this could have easily been engineered differently.
Some tools are difficult to open.

Pros: The wire cutters are tough! What's more, they're replaceable. This was the major reason I purchased these pliers. My old Gerber Multi-Plier wire cutters had received so many nicks in that it was no longer doing the job. With the Legend, I'm able to rotate the blades three times and, when the time comes, simply replace them. The replaceable hack saw blade is a nifty feature. It's easily replaced and can accept a variety of saw blades.
Cons: Sadly, these outweigh the pros. The pliers are the biggest disappointment. The jaws have a much smaller opening then the Gerber Multi-Plier I previously owned. Several common pliers chores I used my old Gerber for are not doable or awkward with the Legend. The handle is not comfortable when using the pliers. I have relatively large hands, but the handles' gap is too wide for a comfy grip. Their angle is such that my hand tends to slip toward the front when I'm gripping them. The tool locks, which work great for locking the assorted tools in place, are very uncomfortable when exerting pressure on the handles. After having the original Gerber Multi-Plier for a number of years, I really miss the one-handed opening of the pliers.
Perhaps the best summation of the Legend is that I threw it in a drawer several weeks ago and went back to my old Gerber Multi-Plier (even with its bad wire cutters).

I have three multitools - and I think I need them all since none of them do everything. In order of preference:
1. The Swiss Tool RS (Rescue and Survival)
2. This one - the Gerber Legend 800
3. The Gerber Pro Scout - stays on the boat.
Of the first two (Swiss Tool and Gerber Legend), the Legend is probably a better design but not nearly as well executed as the Swiss Tool. The Swiss Tool is a thing of beauty, its build like a watch. The blades are much higher quality - same as you find on a swiss army knife. The Legend is a better design - the one handed opening would be huge on the swiss tool but the Legend's execution is just not to the same level as the swiss tool. I'm getting a tiny wear mark on the scissors from the way they store in the tool plus the locks can be painful if you have to use the knife and really bear down.
I like this tool (Legend) for around the house projects. I especially like the one handed opening of the knife and scissors. Doesn't seem like much, but when you have what you need to cut in one hand, and you get your tool out with the other - it is incredibly useful.
+ One handed opening.
+ strong, strong, strong pliers.
+ Great wire cutters. Excellent that they allow replacing the cutting edge. In my experience, this is where most multitools die when the edges get pitted and nicked.
+ good blade set of screwdrivers - 3 slotted, one phillips.
+ don't need to open tool to open blades.
+ Blades all lock in place.
+ nice scissors
+ spring loaded pliers - again very nice when you use them.
- pliers don't open wide enough,
- Case just doesn't cut it. Its cheap and I am constantly hooking the cover on things since it protrudes. Plan on finding another (not an easy task).

Boy, I've had a love-hate relationship with my Gerber Legend 800! When I got the Gerber it was by far the best multitool I had ever used. It blew away my 80s vintage SOGs, Leathermen, swiss army knives and such. I'had the Gerber from 2002 to 2005 and used it intensively most of that time. If I hadn't lost it I would be using it still. The two tools I've used since (Leatherman Charge Ti and Victorinox SwissTool Spirit) are far better designed and show the Gerbers problems. Even so - there are still things about it that nothing else matches and I sometimes find myself wishing I had the big Gerber in those situations that favor it:


Best pliers for detail work in the multi-tool world. As far as I know this is the only springloaded pliers on a multitool anywhere. They are beefy - no sideways wiggle here - and because they open themselves you use them with your whole hand (no back gripping on the inside with the pinky finger to open them like you have to do with every other pliers). This unique aspect makes them much more comfortable and useable for a multitude of tasks. I respect the spotlight review that complained about these not opening up enough for common plumbing - maybe so - but for detail work they have no equal. The wirecutter blade inserts are great too and make you wonder why everyone doesn't do this. Not only are the replaceable wirecutter blades good for inspiring confidence that if you ruin the edge with some hard wire you have recourse - the carbide blades actually do a really job of cutting hard wire - better than any other multitool.

Also - all the tools lock securely - no pinching - and the tools don't open up accidentally by themselves either. The lock mechanism is smooth and easy to employ.
