Herbertz Designer Multitool
on: June 20, 2009, 06:23:06 AM
A nice little keychain tool, with a smooth sveldt shape that feels quite ergonomic in the hand, yet is solidly constructed. Although a smidge on the heavy side, but in a good way, with a solid heft that bespeaks quality construction and inspires confidence. :)






Made in Germany? The box has German writing on it (along with English) but nowhere on the tool does it state country of origin. :think:

The butterfly-opening design works fine for keeping pesky pocket lint out of the innards. Opening the handles reveals a fine little set of capable pliers. :)




For more demanding jobs, each handle further produces a curved extension. Folded out, they provide a useful amount of extra leverage. :)








And that's it, nothing else. :(


PROS:
  • Ergonomic

CONS:
  • No knife
  • No screwdrivers
  • No file
  • No wire cutter
  • No awl
  • No anything except pliers

Well, it's not much of a multitool now is it.

As I was scrolling down I was thinking what they have fitted inside the handle.  :twak:

If that had some wire cutters I'd be tempted, then it would make for a nice little companion to a SAK.  :-\

Bob your pretty little multitool seems to have dropped it's guts some where. Did you check in the bottom of the box  :D :D.
Maybe it is a paper weight AND pliers thus becoming a multitool :D :D :D

This post is not mine originally, but J-sews' post.
Due to some issues around photobucket.com, you can hardly see many important photos posted by J-sews.
So I will back up his photos and restore some of his posts.

Just a few month ago I didn't expect this tough situation to happen.
I believe we shall overcome COVID-19 someday.


Anyway,
I have two other Herbertz multitools.
I will introduce them to you.





Left to right
  • Victorinox Tourist (84mm reference)
  • MULTI KNIFE L (model No. IP-939)
  • Golf Tool
  • PLIERS (IP-919)



PLIERS

As J-sews mentioned above, this tool is a just folding pliers.













There is no characters of tool name or "Herbertz."



Only inside of the handles, there are "PAT.P." and the symbol mark.



Golf Tool











As you see, this tool seems one of purchase benefits of BMW.
I am a user of a Honda car, not a owner of a BMW auto.
I got this tool at the auction.



You can access components from both sides.



Only inside of the handles, there are "PAT.P." and the symbol mark.




MULTI KNIFE L







Unique but sharp sheephoot blade. I was almost injured.





The scissors have a lock mechanism.



You can access components from both sides.



Only inside of the handles, there are "PAT.P." and the symbol mark.



Maybe there exists MULTI KNIFE S(model No. IP-929). I think this is the image of type S.
Of course I am looking for this tool.





Do your best. See you again!!

Thanks for the info & photos   :salute: :hatsoff: :tu:

That sheepsfoot blade reminded me of the "scraper" tool in the Schrade ST1

Guess what?
If you answer correctly, you will get 1 million points!

Beep. It's timed out, sorry.





Next tip.
Now you have a chance to earn a half million points.

What? No! You are kidding me.





Wow, very bold…
You can get ten thousand points!

Ah, I can’t repeat your answer. It’s XXX rated.





You are looking at the almost correct answer!
Still chance to get a hundred points.

Oh my, are you pretending not to know?





Ok. Last chance to one point.

Beeeep. They call it another way.
You lost, and I get one billion points. Thank you.





I’m sorry I was too playful.
It is another handy-sized tool that transforms, sold by Herbertz. It’s not a multi-tool but a mono-tool, like pliers above.







The jaws (sorry I don’t know correct name of this parts) are adjustable.
The upper jaw is fixed and the under jaw slides freely. You see jagged parts on the under jaw and cover. When you close the cover, the under jaw are fixed by the jagged meshing.
I hope you understand my bad explanation.





I haven't told you the answer to the quiz yet.

It is IP-907, The adjustable SPANNER, Herbertz.
