Got me an MPT
« on: February 01, 2008, 11:31:39 PM »
Only just got it, I quite like it as it go's and the rolled edge's are certainly a lot more comfortable than I expected :)
Sadly it's not got the BO finish I'd hoped for, but I'm not that bothered :)



The fit and finish is quite good, for a tool made for the military, and I can see it can take a fair bit of punishment :)



The only thing I'm not sure about is the way the tool line's up when closed ???, sorry for the crappy pic, but the side's aren't parallel, it looks as though it's been made that way, rather than a defect, is that right ???



Full review to follow later :)

I want it for EDC so I am not too fussed on that front.  I really like the tool selection and it's size looks pretty good as well.

It's pretty big (exactly the same length as my dads supertool, but waaay lighter and thinner, plus it's legal edc :)

That is why I am so keen.  :)  BO, like my Supertool.  The same size as my Supertool.  Has all the tools that I find important on my Supertool. PLUS I can carry it anywhere (unlike my Supertool  :()! :)

I can see myself using it, where a locker would be a bit of a no no!

Not yet, as although it's BNIB, it's still a little tight, with light surface corrosion, but given time (and a lot of playing :D) it will :)

See now you're hooked on Gerber! I have been looking at the MPT for a while as well, one of these days i'll own one! Does the file have a metal saw on it?

Interesting.

Your model has several differences between the one I have.

  • Scallops only on one side of the handles
  • Plier head is finished way differently
  • Does no appear to have stop bumps for holding the tool open/closed
  • Flairing at the top of the handles on the plier end
Now I have another variation to find!  :'(

P.S. Mine has a metal saw, on the file.

What sort of numbers were these things made in?

Were they ever exported to any impressive degree? (do I have any chance of ever finding one in Oz)

More Pics please micky.

Congrats on the new toy Mike! FYI, the handles on my MPT are misaligned a bit just like yours.


In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

 Best thing about the MPT in my opinion is the shape and style of the plier head. Its different than any of the other Gerber tools. Looking forward to seeing more pictures. :)

Big bugger huh.

The Effeneff definitely doesn't look as swell, how does it feel in the hand?

(Tell me more tell me more, can she get me a friend?)

Great pics mate!  The MPT looks like a good match to the Supertool in size.

It's very light in the hand, and because of the rolled edges it pretty comfortable, certainly more so than the sideclip :)

As a good, solid and cheap beater, I'm pretty chuffed with it :)
