Gerber Center Drive (with Sante Fe Stoneworks Mammoth and Damascus mini lockback, and Victorinox walnut handle small knife).


So far so good. It'll all depend on durability under reasonable use, and the quality of the metal.

I'm a fan. After carrying a PowerAccess or Skeletool in my pocket  for a year I had to use the awl on my belt so my pants were not falling down. No pics sorry.

I got this one Today and can not stand the sheath it came with,no clip or even decent belt loops so.......

Spare Skinth with
Center Drive
Bit Set
ET D25C-NW
Thrunite TI-5-NW

I will likely get rid of the TI-5 for another AA light as soon as I find one that fits.

Not too sure how I feel about the tool just yet?
Not as slick as the Spirit X and just pretty clunky overall so far.
I was hoping I could flip out the pliers one handed but maybe they just need to break in?

Change=BAD

I don’t have those Gerber wrenches... Instead, I’ve used 90° angled pliers similar to this to mod my MP600...

Yep the wrenches fit. There's a little play but you can use the tape trick to get rid of that.  Just put a thin piece of tape on top of the stud then press the wrench on, it takes up the little bit of play.

I can't stop finding used for mine!  I had to replace the mower deck belt on my tractor yesterday and broke out my Center Drive.  I don't believe there's many jobs you couldn't get accomplished with a combo like this!  I used a torx bit to remove two pulley covers with the assistance of my youngest son, who absolutely loves the Center Drive.

kewl!
The versatility of a universal bit driver is hard to match  :salute:  it seems you've taken good profit of that feature.
Now you'll have a tool to pass on to your son that he'll actually carry and enjoy as much as his father!  :tu:

I'm currently in the Camper Challenge, but ran into a situation where pliers were the only option I had available.  The alternator went south on my Subaru, and took the battery with it.  Luckily, something told me to pack the CD in my gear last night.  I used those awesome pliers to loosen the terminal nuts so I could bring it home to put it on the charger.

good that your CD was on you and saved the day  :cheers:

that is why I always carry at least one pliers tool with whatever SAKs  :salute:

Went along on a hike with my Vic Rambler today!  This guy has been busy with a ton of homework lately and hasn't missed a beat!  That light behind the CD is literally the light at the end of a 1/4 mile long railroad tunnel.

I'm in the 58/65/74mm challenge over in the Swiss Army Knights section but needed something with a little more smoke to erect an outdoor kennel for our sheepdogs. I put the CD to use. Everything from the pliers and wirecutter to the cat's paw got a workout!  I'm still thrilled with mine!
