5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value for the Price, November 30, 2010
This review is from: Gerber 31-000674 MP450 Compact Sport Multitool and Paraframe I (Tools & Home Improvement)
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. So, because of that, I am going to have to give this set 5 stars...if I had paid $30 for the set I would probably rate it 4 stars. All in all though it's a good multi-tool that won't break the bank. If you are the kinda guy that is gonna make this an EDC item worn on your belt and plan to use it heavily you should probably go for the Gerber Diesel instead. But, for my purposes this lil tool is perfect.
