Like the men and women who carry our gear, Gerber is Unstoppable. Decades of innovation and dedication have put us here. Renowned as a master of knives and tools, Gerber's problem-solving, life-saving products are designed with the unique needs of specific activities in mind. Today that includes much more than a blade.
With its industrial strength, easy handling, and super versatility, the Gerber 22-01545 Diesel Black Needlenose Multi-Plier offers everything you need to tackle tough tasks and tricky problems. The Diesel Black has all of the features of the original, plus it sports a non-reflective black finish. It showcases a robust design with 12 stainless steel tools that are larger and more durable than average, along with Gerber's patented Saf.T.Plus component locking system and the convenience of quick, wrist-flick deployment.
The Diesel folds up for easy transport and deploys at the flick of a wrist.
Whether you're at work, in the middle of an epic road trip, or taking some time off to get reacquainted with the natural world, you'll find that the strength and durability of the Diesel often come to your rescue. Crafted from high-quality stainless steel, the Diesel offers a thicker-than-average blade with a versatile, half-serrated edge. And when the task at hand calls for more than a knife alone can handle, you'll appreciate the way the Diesel's 11 other tools give you a real leg up.
Job-specific tools make any task safer and easier to accomplish quickly. That's why this tool also includes a cross-point screwdriver, small, medium, and large flat-blade screwdrivers, a can opener, a bottle opener, a file, a saw, and scissors, as well as a dedicated wire cutter/stripper.
Unlike the bulky squared-off pliers on many multi-tools, the needle-nose pliers at the center of this tool are designed to fit in tight spots. Plus they can be opened quickly using one flick of the wrist, which makes working with them easy, intuitive, and one-handed.
Safe, User-Friendly Design for Peace of Mind
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 patented Saf.T.Plus system, which locks each component securely in place for worry-free use.
A nylon ballistic-cloth sheath keeps the tool protected when not in use.View Larger.
Despite its broad range of features, this tool weighs just 8.6 ounces. It measures 6.61 inches overall and 4.92 inches closed. The handle is well-balanced for comfortable use and showcases an elegant bead blast finish.
This Gerber Multi-Tool also comes with a nylon ballistic-cloth sheath so that you can keep it protected when it's not in use.
Gerber's History of Ingenuity
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
The "inside" handle can move a bit toward your palm, allowing the handles to separate ever so slightly, and allowing the plier to extend with a satisfying click. Easy peazy.
The slide release for the pliers is extremely smooth and makes one handed deploying a dream. This element alone kept me with a gerber rather then leathermans with much more appropriate features for my needs.
The fold out knife kept its edge surprisingly well with very little care
The pliers can stand up to fairly unholy levels abuse repeatedly and constantly.
Some black oxide residue definitely rubbed off when the product was new. On hands, on clothes near the holster, occasionally on the piece I was working on.
The cutter jaws in the pliers went dull in no time flat. Dull so quick I didn't think of them as a feature this tool ever really had beyond the first week or so. They were only ever used on zip ties and it was a sensation similar to trying to chew through the ziptie with your molars. Lots of marks left behind but nothing resembling progress.
The standard sheath it comes with is extremely minimal and not much use for daily abuse. Leatherman's nylon sheath for the Wave (the one with a hole in the bottom) is a great fit, lasted me several months of hard use, and comes with pencil/sharpie holders.
In sum: This is a great tool for light-medium duty especially if one handed use is a priority. Its durable and reliable if not terribly inspiring. Better options certainly exist, but at this price and for how long it lasted, this is a great tool
-slide out pliers. they were weird at first but then i remembered my old multitool how the pliers would get stuck in one side. this eliminates that hassle.
-build quality. built with materials that feel sturdy and likely will last.
-scissors actually work. i cant stand when other multitools fail to cut anything as soft as paper. usually i just go and dig out the scissors, not anymore
-locking mechanism. every function locks into place so other functions dont come out on you. there have been countless times i had been cutting something with the saw and it folded back in and cut my hand. this eliminates that.
-stiff at first. not much of a con. it just needs to be used and itll go away. but when youre trying all the functions, it takes a while to pull them out.
-case is minimalist and stiff. again not much of a con. the tool only fits in the case head first. the case needs breaking in.
i bought this because i have a gerber knife and its awesome.
-feels great on the hand. Doesn't hurt to use pliers
-looks great with uniform (matte black)
-knives and cutters are very sharp out of the gate
-nylon case works and holds up for now
-chipped the main knife tip trying to get underneath that thicker plastic wrapped around industrial packages
-pliers that slide out are starting to get loose when I wiggle them back and forth
I should have returned them after I chipped the knife but I can't see myself going a shift without these so I suck it up for now. That part is my own fault but I feel as if the knife could have been stronger and pliers could be a little tighter.
Overall amazing product though don't get me wrong
