Tough, reliable, and easy to handle, the Gerber Suspension Multi-Plier is engineered to tackle jobs in just about every situation you can imagine. Featuring a sleek butterfly design, durable stainless steel construction, and Gerber's patented Saf.T.Plus component locking system, this affordable multitool packs 11 convenient tools that will quickly prove indispensable.
Strong yet lightweight, the Suspension Multi-Plier offers the durability of stainless steel construction along with an aluminum butterfly-opening handle that's inspired by the precision engineering of Portland, Oregon's famous suspension bridges. Like those time-tested iron bridges, this tool is designed to deliver the down-and-dirty performance that you demand from your tools.
But performance isn't everything. The tool's unique suspension-style handle sits comfortably in your hand, giving it a well-balanced feel. Compact enough to satisfy the most demanding minimalists, and cool enough for any gadget guy or girl, the Suspension Multi-Plier offers a sleek, streamlined design that will look as good as it performs.
Reliable, Easy-to-Access Tools Keep You Prepared
Whether you're at home, on the road, at a muddy jobsite, or deep in the backcountry, you can't predict what you'll be up against. The Suspension Multi-Plier is fitted with 11 tools that will give you the edge in virtually any situation.
Starting with the knives, you have the choice of a straight blade for fine-tune cutting, or a serrated blade that's great for cutting rope.
This tool also includes a Phillips screwdriver along with large and medium flathead screwdrivers, as well as a dedicated wire cutter/stripper. Unlike bulky squared-off pliers on many multitools, the needle-nose pliers at the center of this tool are designed for the tightest of spots. And they're spring loaded so that they open when you release your grip, which makes working with them easy, pinch free and intuitive.
Other useful features hidden away in the handle of the Suspension include scissors, a bottle opener, a can opener, saw, an awl, and a lanyard ring.
Safe, User-Friendly Design
If you've ever had a folding knife close on your hand in the middle of making a tough cut, you'll have a special appreciation for Gerber's Saf.T.Plus system, which locks components securely in place for worry-free use.
Even with this lock system, deployment is quick and easy. Gerber's user-friendly design makes it simple to access any tool that you need--just slide the lock-release button back and get set for the task at hand.
This Gerber multitool also comes with a nylon ballistic-cloth sheath so that you can keep it protected from the elements when it's not in use.
If you're looking for even more versatility, Gerber offers an add-on tool kit that contains an adapter, three different sizes of flathead bits, cross point bits, and hex head bits for increased functionality. Also available are several a convenient sharpening systems that can help you keep the blades on your multitool in top condition without the hassle of using a whetstone or a round file, including the DF6 Compact Sharpener and the DF8 Sharpener, which uses unique diamond fingers to acheive a perfect 30 degree angle every time you sharpen a blade (tool kit and sharpeners not included).
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that contributed to Gerber's emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon's Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular, Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.
For more than half a century, Gerber Legendary Blades has been helping people fend for themselves. Gerber designs popular, dependable tools and knives along with other outdoor gear that helps users accomplish whatever tasks they may be faced with, promoting the lost art of self-reliance.

Top customer reviews
PROS: sleek and well crafted; sturdy; locking mechanism; right size; great price; blades come fairly sharp; great tool variety
CONS: hard to open with one hand; smaller inside tools are hard to get to; one hand release notch is tough to slide; designed for right-hand use only (minor issue)
Definitely a solid tool for the price and the cons are more like inconveniences than real flaws at the end of the day.
-Has a multitude of attachments.
-The carry case is compact bit accessible.
-Vey useful attachments, most are utilized regularly on backpacking trips and in everyday situations.
-Heavy for backpacking. This is not a light multitool.
-There are a couple of attachments that I have not used, and likely will not.
I recommend this multitool for backpacking or to keep in the "junk" drawer, despite the weight.
I have this on my hip at all times. It has never failed me. I bought a second one because I made a hip pouch tool set for my GF. It included this, a mini-mag light, a pair of small scissors, a Sharpie, and all of it fits in a hip mounted pouch with another pocket big enough to hold a normal sized cell phone.
She uses this thing at work all the time now. Would definitely buy again.
i have searched high and low for a small, but very sturdy multi tool. going to stores to feel the heft of some products opened my eyes to portability. this gerber product is compact and fits easily in my pocket for quick access when needed. every item in the tool is very well made and functions well. my only comment is that it may be difficult for some people to get all of the tools out, but you can't be in a hurry. i have used it countless times and each time gets better and easier. the best thing is that is folds into a workable size and doesn't take up much space in my pocket. actually, my pocket is a small dedicated lined pocket for tools such as these. gerber makes a zillion multitools, so each tool will have its backers and users. your results may vary. great product from gerber and amazon.
update 7/16/14 well, after several years of owning this great tool, it finally fell into the salt water. we washed it with fresh water and left it out in the sun to dry. it did not take very long to dry and that was good. but, there were some signs of rust in the sharp edges and corners. the fold out sections were a little stiff again. fresh water on stainless tools should do the trick, but the salt did a number on the "stainless steel" parts. we used a combination of spotless stainless cleaner and nevr dull cloths. we also used mclube silicone dry lube to keep everything moving well. hopefully, we will not drop it in the saltwater again, but now we know how to bring it back to life...
