Here is a more detailed comparison of this product with the Leatherman CS:
- The scissors in the Gerber splice are significantly more heavy-duty than the Leatherman CS. I tried cutting some Velcro straps with both, and the Gerber splice left a nice clean edge, whereas the Leatherman CS required multiple cuts and did not cut cleanly. Both tools fine for cutting paper or threads, but for something heavier, the Gerber splice is better.
- The Leatherman CS starts out easy to open, while the Gerber Slice starts out stiff and sometimes hard to open, as other reviewers have complained. But it gets easier to open as you use it.
- The Leatherman CS has a pair of tweezers; this does not. (This product's predecessor, the Gerber Shortcut, had tweezers; I don't know why they removed them.)
- The Leatherman has a handy clip on it that makes it easy to attach to something. This product does not; it has a little ring that you could use to attach to your keyring, but it's certainly not as easy to attach or detach.
- This product has a serrated knife in addition to a straight knife; the Leatherman has only an unserrated knife. I'm not sure whether that's an important advantage; I haven't yet wanted to use the serrated knife, though I suppose I might. Generally when I would want a serrated knife (for cutting cardboard or something like that), I usually reach for a bigger multitool. I suppose the serrated knife might be handy for the nasty blister packages, but for that I think a better tool is the package opener on the Gerber Dime (which I strongly recommend).
- The nail file on the Leatherman is vastly better. The nail file on this works, but I much prefer the Leatherman--it's longer, and has a better roughness for filing nails. Gerber used to have a really good nail file (on the Gerber Shortcut, the predecessor to this multitool); I don't know why they abandoned it.
- Both the Leatherman and this tool have a "cross driver" (i.e., a Philips screwdriver), but neither is great. The Leatherman one is completely flat (it only engages two of the four slots of the screw). This one is *almost* flat; it has tiny projections for the other two slots. I'm not sure that really helps at all. So I would say that both have usable Philips screwdrivers, but neither is great. You can certainly use them in a pinch, or if you're too lazy to go get another screwdriver, but in general I would probably prefer a real Philips driver like some other multitools have (Victorinox pocketknives and multitools usually have excellent Philips screwdrivers).
- This product has two regular screwdrivers, one small (almost eyeglass size) and the other fairly large. The Leatherman does not have any regular screwdrivers.
- This has a bottle opener which looks like it's probably pretty good, but I haven't had to open any bottles yet. The Leatherman CS also has a bottle opener as part of its clip. I cannot say which works better, but I can say that the Gerber splice bottle opener is wider (it's the whole width of the multitool, basically).
- This product is wider and heavier than the Leatherman.
The Leatherman Micra also has a pair of scissors in a similar size package. It's more similar to the Leatherman CS, and in my opinion strictly inferior to the Leatherman CS--it has all the same problems, plus you have to open the scissors first to get at any of the other tools. The Leatherman CS or the Gerber Splice is much better in that you can get to any tool without opening the scissors.
So, in summary: this is an excellent pair of scissors, the best I have seen on any multitool. If you also want a good nail file or a pair of tweezers, you probably want the Leatherman CS; if you want the best scissors, or a nice but short serrated knife in addition to an unserrated knife, this would be the right tool. I vacillate between carrying this and the Leatherman CS.
Excellent serrated blade. I use it very frequently as a box cutter or rope cutter.
-Bites like a mousetrap when you close it. I pinched a blood blister on my first handling of the tool.
-Sharp external edges around the handle. I filed them down to avoid wearing through my pocket.
-The straight-edge blade doesn't have a hard stop so it flexes backwards easily.
-The straight screwdriver is pretty well worthless. It's combined with a parallel bottle opener that gets in the way.
-The phillips screwdriver/file and the miniature screwdriver can only be used with the tool closed so you have a very short, fat tool that can't get into anyplace tight, especially the miniature screwdriver when used on glasses frames.
Most of the above problems are not present on the Micra. If I could get a Micra with Splice's serrated blade, I'd really have something. As for the Splice, it will go into the dresser drawer when my next Micra arrives.
The scissors has at least a couple of able co-stars, which are a surprisingly sharp knife blade and a serrated saw blade. I've used some dollar-store multitools whose implements were laughingly dull, and which brought the tool down to the level of a throwaway novelty item. The blades on this Gerber, however, are sharp enough to be genuinely useful. This means that they are also sharp enough to cut your fingers badly. This is quite possible should your fingers slip while trying to open the tight components of this tool.
The sharp blades, however, are two of the largest and easiest to open implements. Some of the smaller tools such as the screwdrivers are quite tight and will likely chip your fingernails sometimes as you try to open them. I would suggest using the needle-nosed pliers of another multitool to convince some of these little nail rippers to stand up and cheer. All the tools will begin to loosen a bit over time. I recommend carefully opening each instrument a few times when the tool is new, to establish a muscle memory of the force and grip required. This will minimize the risk of future accidents. Both a good scissors and good pliers are among the most useful items to be found on a multitool, but both are seldom found on the same model, and when they are, they are seldom of the same high quality. That is why it is wise to buy one multitool with good scissors and one with good pliers. These tools are compact, lightweight, and affordable, so having two at the ready would not be extravagant. In the case of the sharp but uptight little Gerber, I suspect that the tools may be further loosened by adjusting the torx screws that hold the case together.
I intend to try that as soon as I can obtain some drivers. In summation, any tool that is edged sharply enough to be useful can be potentially dangerous. If operated carelessly, this one can inflict lacerations and pinch wounds. I wouldn't feel entirely comfortable putting it in the hands of the average Cub Scout, but it can work out well for a careful, older person with steady hands.
