Chako, I’m really impressed.

I decided the night: I will collect some Gerber tools. Maybe I find some rare tools too.

Hey Chako,

do you collect also the accessories like different sheaths and different boxes?

I got very lucky. I stumbled upon the full Military MP650 kit online while not even looking for it. I understand they are very rare these days.

As for collecting Gerbers...I started off thinking they only made 4 different Leatherman models...and the same would go for Gerber. Yeah...that notion didn't last all that long.  :rofl:

I saw the different plierheads on MTO and I was dreaming- maybe I can get some. Hard to find but I get some MP 650 plierheads this week - I will post pictures soon.

That’s the reason why I collect - going from shop to shop and never give up. 100 times the owner says: Sorry, no.
But sometimes there’s a „yes“ :tu:

You are definitely off to a good start.  :tu:

The standard SS needle nose pliers are usually not super difficult to find (most MP650's came with them, and they were also sold as a separate accessory: part # 48273).  But of course some sellers put a high price on them.

The SS needle nose pliers with cap crimper are much harder to find - AFAIK they were only ever sold as part of the large military MP650 kit in the large sheath,

Yes, I think the standard pliers are not the biggest problem. The cap crimper version should (like you said before) be harder to find. I like the packaging and the style of the older Gerber stuff...  :cheers:

Count me in as a MP650 owner. :woohoo:

Neat tool, but now see why they are rare. A Gerber MP model with non-retractable pliers. :ahhh

Yep, interesting and promising concept, but the final execution was a tool with a lot of unused space in the handles.

Cool !   :salute:   Where did you find a Gerber MP600 SS CC plier head ?   Or did you cheat ?   ;)   :pok:
