Multi-Plier 600 - Needlenose Black w/ Carbide Insert Cutters, Berry-Compliant Sheath
We can think of about 600 reasons why this much-applauded multi-tool belongs on your belt. But don't worry, well just stick to the most important ones here. Like profound versatility, for example. And fail safe performance. And a level of rock-solid design and construction that pleases the eye and satisfies the soul.
It all begins with high quality stainless steel. Then we incorporated Gerber's patented one-handed opening pliers. Top that off with our patented replaceable tungsten carbide wire cutters . When the cutters become dull or misshapen simply rotate the tungsten carbide cutters 120-degrees, and you've got yourself a good-as-new wire cutter. After three rotations, the entire cutter can be replaced.
You'd be hard pressed to find a more rugged or more fearless multi-tool out there. But go ahead and look around a bit. See what you think. Then come on back to Gerber and pick the Multi-Plier 600 that truly suits your needs. We're building plenty.

was issued this on my way to "the stan" not really sure how i would have been sain without it, again the only draw back is the blade's edge but once sharpened it seems to hold it even after alot of use..... having been on multiple deployments plus just being an active duty soldier finding gear such as multi tools and knifes that last has been an on going battle but gerber seems to get it right thanks guys
I have been issued a Gerber multi tool on my deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and as much as I love having it and how useful it is, I have come to find that they are not very durable. Mainly the pliers jaws and the carbide cutters always break. Thank god there are plenty of people who leave them laying around.
The current Army Gerber multitool issued to troops getting deployed. Comes with ACU sheath with Molle Clip. Carried it in Iraq and was totally used by me and the Iraqi security forces who were with us. I figured it would be "borrowed" and not get "returned" at some point. But it managed to make it back to it's sheath clipped on my body armor. Cleaned it once in a while with WD40. Opens easily with one hand and it's very durable. Some prefer the Leatherman but I prefer this as it's free and it has all the right tools needed by soldiers. I carried mine with my issue Surefire Centurion C2 flashlight. And my trusty Gerber Shard. Thanks Gerber for steadfastly supporting the military. :)
Got issued this for Iraq and then again for Afghanistan.It is a MUST HAVE TOOL... very durable. One hand open is awesome.
The first time i saw a Gerber was in the movie Blowen Away. I was an Army Parachute Rigger and the Letherman was just too clumsey. I have had a Gerber by my side since the 1990's and would not have any other tool. Now im a Maintenance Tech and i can us
I quite like this gerber. The one hand opening especially helps, if one finds that rust is an issue just spare a little bit of oil from your weapon on it. Any 3 in 1 oil or CLP type oil will do for a non military user.
Another poorly manufactured tool from Gerber. The tool is loose and rickity. Rusts easily and is not nearly as smooth as a Leatherman.
It ain't baby food. Every U.S. Army member deploying to Iraq or Afghanistan gets issued a Gerber Multi-Plier 600. Made in America, it's a highly functional gadget that simply makes the war fighter more effective, from adjusting a sight on a weapon and cutting through straps or seatbelts to making small modifications on anything in the field.
