Small Device Holds Eight Tools
The most useful tool is the one you have when you need it--and with the Artifact, all you have to do is reach for your keychain to find what you need. At just 3.5 inches closed, the Artifact is barely larger than a cigarette lighter, but Gerber still managed to pack eight different functions into its compact, easily portable form.

The Artifact includes a Phillips screwdriver, two flat-head screwdrivers, a bottle opener, pry bar, wire stripper, a knife that uses standard #11 blades, and a lanyard.

Durable Construction
Although it features a small profile, the Artifact is built for durability. It features stainless steel construction and has a titanium nitride coating for long-lasting durability.

I just got a one inch stab wound in my leg from this product being in my pocket. The defect is in the design. Once a key ring is attached to the tool, if you press the key ring foreward away from the screwdriver tip and twist it towards the knife it will pop that knife portion right open. Imagine pulling something out of a tight pocket or sitting down and causing that twist to happen. This is what I am assuming happended to me. Blood everywhere!!!! I have owened it for several years and it finally got me. It did not get loose over time. If you have one you can carefully try this twisting action at home and I doubt you will ever cary one of these in your pocket again with the blade installed. I emailed Gerber in the hopes that they will re-design this product to make it safer. I attached a video to this review to show you how this can happen. Be safe!

SAVE THE THUMBS. I love my Gerber Artifact tool, but there's one issue. The blade arm is difficult to swing out from its safety position for use. After weeks of daily use, I learned the hard way and sliced my thumb to the bone trying to open it. As I type this, my thumb is hovering unused and bandaged over the keyboard. Since then, I think I've figured out a safe way to open the blade arm and I wanted to share it to try to spare the thumbs of others -- use a coin to pry the blade arm out from its safety position. A quarter fits perfectly in the slot near the key chain loop on the tool. Stay safe.

I read the other reviews that mentioned that it's easy to cut yourself with the blade and thought "Well, I'm not that stupid plus why did they still give it 5 stars? I'll buy it anyway."

Once I received the Gerber Artifact I immediately tried to open up the blade - being cautious due to what I had read- and, indeed, found it extremely hard to open up. The lock seems to keep the blade arm in place pretty well but it is poorly designed and a pain to get open (one reviewer said he always opens it with a coin). Nevertheless I opened it with all fingers still in tact.

I immediately closed it and found the closing lock to work ok even though they should put some kind of description on the package because it's not that obvious for either locking mechanism. After that I tried out the other tools and they all seem to work pretty well. I was pretty pleased even with the few obvious flaws.

Cut to 15 minutes later: I had to cut out something and jumped at the opportunity to use my new tool. The blade begrudgingly opened and I put it to use. Afterwards I went to close it and the closing mechanism didn't work so I gave it a little pressure to close it - and BAM! sliced my finger to the bone.

Needless to say I am that stupid and the other reviewers were definitely right about this product. Hopefully the good people at Gerber peruse these reviews every once in awhile and start putting their designers to work on Artifact 2.0.

For the actual task of cutting, this product works great. But truthfully, THIS IS THE MOST DANGEROUS PRODUCT I HAVE EVER USED. I got it about 2 months ago and from the very first time I examined it I thought it was a dangerous design and made a note to be especially careful using it. And I was. I've used it 30-40 times before with no real problem, but today the inevitable happened. My thumb slipped just SLIGHTLY while opening it, and the next moment I was bleeding profusely. 4 hours and 6 stitches later I'm punching out this review with only 9 functional fingers. It is astonishing to me this product hasn't been recalled, let alone the fact that it is still being sold.

Imagine reaching into your pocket for your keys and feeling a sharp pain followed by the warmth of flowing blood. This was my experience with this pocket tool, a long deep gash down one of my fingers that refused to stop bleeding. As a working plumber I thought this would be a good pocket tool to carry in addition to my multi tool for when I have crawled into a tight spot. Until they come up with a more secure lock my artifact will be just that, a artifact in my tool box.

20 years ago, while in college I spent summer hitch hiking out west. I always carried an EDC for protection and a multi tool for functionality.

After a very traumatic experience in Reno back in 1998 I decided to combine my now loathing camping (symbolized by my multi tool) and hitch hiking (symbolized by my thumb) into the Gerber Artifact.

Since this awesome tool has now severed my thumb, I now no longer have the need or ability to camp or hitch hike.

I highly recommend this tool for college students thinking about taking a gap year.

(1 star off because I still use it to open beers...in my van)

Awesome look and feel. Having a nail puller around all the time can be surprisingly useful not only for nails but for removing screws and bolts that are stuck or aren't threading out, and for prying all kinds of things apart. This helps make this tool a very good complement to when you have you big tool with you also, where as most micro tools are pretty worthless when you also have your bigger/faster/nicer/more productive tool with you.

The big downside is the knife is way to hard to open and every copy of this took I have seen at least one of the screws on the inside of the knife are not in straight as if all of them were threaded badly. Also they use screws that have a crazy small what seems like a torx head so its not very easy to try and adjust anything (I have at least 50 torx bits and non are this small).

The drivers on this could also be better, I find that both the flat head and the philips head manage often to just barely not work well enough, maybe a micro socket driver would have been a better choice, but then you would have to worry about keeping track of bits.

I think exacto knifes are awesomely sharp and useful but tend to be a lot more expensive, not as common, and have a lesser variety then razor blades, but I have a ton of razor blades so the exacto part was probably what sold me on this item.

This tool also has some heft to it which can both be a postive since it has a solid feel at makes some tools like the nail puller more useful but not always something you want in your ultra portable tool.
