Product Description

Color: Red

We took the standard keychain multi-tool and made it better. In addition to stainless steel pliers, wire cutters, a fine edge blade, spring-loaded scissors, flathead screwdriver, crosshead driver, tweezers and file, the Dime includes a unique blade designed to safely cut and score plastic packaging and a bottle opener that is exposed even when the tool is closed. Compact and lightweight, the Dime is the most valuable change you'll find in your pocket.

Purchased the black tactical Dime as I needed pliers and scissors in a small pocket-sized tool. The size is great and the design is well thought out. All the tools are accessible while closed, except the pliers/wire cutters. That means for much of the time it doesn't need to be opened.

The problems began when I went to cut a piece of insulated wire (#16 awg). It just wouldn't cut it. It was more like mashing it and still not cutting. I tried several times with limited or no success. Finally just bent the wire back and forth along the crease the tool made and it broke. Not quite what I expected.

On to the scissors...and they barely cut paper. Hmmmm...something is not going well.

Then I tried the screw driver flat blade. Any torque at all and it started to bend. Again, not a good thing.

Finally I noticed that each time I opened it up for the pliers, the two front corners scraped against each other. At first only removing paint. Then as I continued to open it a dozen times more tiny flecks of metal fell onto the table I was working on. In just a few dozen openings of the tool, significant metal had been worn away where both handles rubbed each other in leverage to open the tool. So much metal began to disappear I doubted that it would last a few months before being unusable. Paint I can live with being scratched, but when the metal starts to disappear something is wrong.

I would say that the quality of materials used in the Dime is less than stellar. It reminds me of a cheaply made tool that looks nice, has nice features, but the material is so poor it will not stand up to any real use.

I'm bummed because it is the perfect size and group of tools for me.

First off, I must say that I use a lot of these type of multitools and have experimented with a few brands in search of the best quality and I will have to say that Gerber is not traditionally a higher end product when it comes to the metals they use. I'm no expert however every single product (knives, machette, multitool) that I've used SO FAR has failed me before it's time. I was simply using this "Dime" to help another hiker separate a stubborn tent pole and the pressure apparently was too great. The plyer portion simply popped and gave out. I was just going to mail it back since it's under warranty however if you consider the cost of this item and then the cost to mail and insure it to Gerber, it's really not practical at all. I have absolutely nothing against Gerber except that my experiences have spoken clearly enough. I will say that this is a pretty handy tool if you're really not going to use it much but if you need something more dependable, do some research and see what guys say that really put their gear to the test. I'm not talking about opening a cardboard box with it or cutting some paracord folks, I mean USING it. Leatherman has been pretty good to me and when I snapped the blade on the older version of the Wave while in Iraq, they sent me the new version (they already identified the flaw) with a case and no questions asked. All I did was email them a picture of their broken blade and they didn't require the customer to pay to return their defective product. Just food for thought guys. Thanks for reading my rambling.

I was in the market for a keychain multitool for hiking/camping (to compliment my main blade). It was between this and the PS4 (I needs scissors). I liked the blade and overall design better on the Dime. However, after broken plier jaws, on first use, on two separate Gerber Suspensions really left me on bad terms with the Gerber brand. Ever since, I've been loyal to LM's quality (have the Wave, Skeletool, Juice, and Wingman). But, I took the chance and got the Dime.

The tool is small. Small enough to hide behind my thumb. The blade came sharp, but not shaving sharp. Polishing the edge on some ceramic and smooth stainless rods fixed that. Like I said, I like the blade profile because on a non-locking blade, it seems like a safer shape (seems harder to accidentally close the blade on your finger while doing some cutting). Also, the blade edge is V-grind, unlike the single grind edge on the Squirt.

The outside tools open and lock with a satisfying solid snap. The tools are a bit hard to pull out, I'm hoping that with some breaking in, it gets easier.

The scissors hinge is tight and seem sharp enough. I'll have to wait till my fingernails grow back out to finish evaluating them. But, I do wish the scissors could be opened further. They are made in such a way that it only opens a set distance.

The bottle opener has three purposes in my opinion. 1) to have a much more solid attaching point rather than the dinky ring it comes with. I put a small carabiner clip on it. 2) for opening bottles 3) Extends the handle for more leverage and comfort while using the pliers.
