Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Gerber 31-000674 MP450 compact sport multitool and paraframe combo is a great set for anyone who loves the outdoors. While the compact sport multitool may be the smaller and less formidable version of the Multi-Pliers 600 series, this Multi-Pliers 400 series compensates by being Gerber's most popular tool. The compact is unmatched for strength, durability, and ease of use. Gerber's patented Saf.T.Plus locking system is your assurance that this little guy more than holds its own in the name of user safety.

Clip a paraframe into your pocket and you're fully equipped to take care of business. There is a simplicity to this knife that relates as much to function as it does to form. It's a breeze to open. The clip point blade configuration is ideal for cutting in close quarters. Openness rules the day where the handle is concerned--there's more air than metal, so it's lightweight and easy to keep clean.

Customer Reviews

The Multi tool holds up well also, and seems very sturdy.
Matthew Lashure
I really like Gerber's products and believe they are great value for money, and this combo deal is hard to beat.
Anastasio Sarigiannis
The knife's locking mechanism was misfit and cause they knife to actually be INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS to use.

I'm sure there are better multi-tools on the market...the Leatherman Core or the Gerber Diesel for instance. But, both of those tools are far more expensive items. This little MP450 more than suffices for what I needed. It is a bit smaller than I expected but it gets the job(s) done...the pliers, cutters, wire strippers, screwdriver(s), file, bottle opener, can opener, and small knife blade were really the main features I was looking for in a multi-tool. I was just looking for something affordable to throw in my hiking/camping pack...and for this sort of application I highly recommend this set. The retractable plier head kinda threw me off at first but now that I've used it I kinda like it. All of the fold out tools seem sturdy enough and they all lock into place. The knife is OK. I'm not really a fan of serrations on a knife blade but the straight edge portion of the blade sharpens up pretty nicely and I decided that it would work nicely as my meat cutting knife since the only eating utensil I currently have in my pack is a stainless steel spork(it's hard to cut with a spork). This will let me use my other knives for their intended purposes without having to worry about sanitizing them for eating purposes after they've been gutting fish, cleaning small game or processing fire wood. The knife and the carry case for the multi-tool were made in China...I'm not a fan of products made in China but to each their own. The multi-tool was actually made in the USA which made me more comfortable in purchasing this set, as I mainly just wanted the multi-tool. Overall, it's a good value if you can get it for a good price. I wouldn't pay more than about $25-$30 for this set if you can manage it. I was lucky enough to purchase this set on sale for $19.99 at Academy here in Texas.Read more ›

I purchased this a few weeks ago, as with all tools I prefer to field test it a little bit before I give a review.

The set is a pretty good deal at the $30 price range. The tool itself is handy when you need it to be. The one handed opening is easy and smooth at the first try. I'm in the Navy and there are quite a few people here who use these. I tend to be a firm believer that if my co-workers who do the same job as me are satisfied when they use something that it will probably work just as well for me.

Two negatives:
First, even if you are using a hard plastic, plastic doesn't really give me the comfort that my tool will last the test of time.

Second, If you live in a place with humidity or get the tool wet, I advise you to keep this well oiled and clean.

If you do not drop this and take care of it as you should any other tool, expect this to last years.

If anyone ever opens a multi-tool museum the Compact Sport 450 will have to be in it simply because it utilizes such an unusual design. Instead of the more common double fold mechanism found in other multi-tools that retract the pliers' jaws back into the handle for carrying, the 450 utilizes a (locking) slide mechanism that slides the jaws back into the handle. Different. Because of this mechanism there is a disconcerting amount of play between the jaws and the handle. The integrity of the slide mechanism also seems to put a lot of faith in very thin little clip-nut-washer-thingies (for lack of a better term). These are not apparent in the product pic but they secure the locking device to the handle and you are actually looking at them edgewise in the pic - they extend along the 3 bumps that are on the outside of the handles just out from the center pivot.

The blades and tools all look good. The tool is relatively light, but the design is not very confidence inspiring. I would expect the belt loop on the tool pouch to fail within a few days outings.

The knife is nice and light weight and has a clip. It inspires a little more confidence.

I paid $30 for the combo; probably about right. At that price I should give it 4 stars or more, but I don't want to make anyone believe that the tool compares favorably with more serious models (that cost more).

Update 11/27/10 further observations: The bottle opener works on a single try (not true for all multitools). After some practice I have mastered the wrist-flip one handed pliers opening technique and admit that this could be handy in some situations (like fishing). I see the combo price is now ~$40 - reasonable I guess. I do like the Paraframe knife.

I receive a larger Gerber multi-tool ten years ago, and was at a loss when the pliers broke. My wife bought a similar compact Gerber multi-tool for me, but I really like having a file. I jumped at this when I saw it, because of the file. The outstanding feature is the one handed opening. I replaced the nylon case with a leather case and stuffed a little oiled cloth in the bottom to make the knife fit. I don't really like the blade design, because I prefer a nonserrated blade. I still love the tool overall, and now I have a pocket knife for times when I don't want the multi-tool on my belt. You can't beat the quality for the price of the combo.

I purchase the MP450 years ago and used it everyday at work. Handy, one hand opened and I could use the pliers. Great tool until someone stole. I liked it over the leatherman sets because it was light, practical, and not overloaded with stuff. Well made and I highly recomend it. I did not give it 5 stars because the pouch wore out, but I guess it's bound to happen with anyone. Price is about $39.99 for the tool set alone at the local shops.
