I haven't laid eyes on one yet.

The picture makes me think it is simply a reincarnated Suspension, with different handles.

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

costco has them in a combo kit with a multi head led penlight and different colored lenses, a clutch tool and a resolve with cases for the light and resolve in a aluminum case for $17.

I got this MT for collection purpose only because my permanent EDC is LM Wave. It has a nicely ergonomically contoured handles and spring loaded needlenose pliers, but for its size, it is bulky. It has the same length as the LM PST but twice the thickness. Lot of empty spaces inside because of thick washers in between implements. It’s heavy, weighs almost twice as PST but the implements inside are small. The workmanship is not up to standard of USA made tools but decent enough for one that is made in China.   

Here is the picture of my Resolve with its brother, the 600 Pro Scout bluntnose.

Nice picture!

Are the lock release tabs still painful to use?

Gosh, I think I've seen a review of the Gerber Resolve somewhere.  It's a shame there isn't a site somewhere on the 'Net that has all kinds of multitool reviews and information gathered into one place.

Wow mr. Cranky pants. Just kidding.

But I really hate the Suspension and this one would follow suit. It is and ergonomic tool however you really need sasquatch hands to use it. Plus the tools are really not too user friendly I mean really the saw is so dinky andthe blades are really kinda well small.

However it will bring people into the fold of the tool and maybe show them that tere are better options out there.

With all the bashing of the tool in the post. well I most likely will still get one. :ahhh

 It's odd that how the ergonomics of the Spirit,are so esthetically pleasing but fail on anything else.

Swiss style at is best, sak's always look sleek, and unclutered, other manufactures seem to be able to capture functional looks, but not aesthetically pleasing lines :-\
Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

  Considering that the thumbstuds are so poorly situated that you can't open the blades at any sort of reasonable angle, it might be an ok buy at $17.

Yup, the locks hurt my thumbs. The lock of the 600 Pro Scout is better.
