Got two  gerber lately. One Flik and one Mp 600.
The Flik isn`t so bad. Ok, the small middle tools are difficult to get out but it feels really sturdy and I like the plier/handle function. And all tools on the outside.I like.

It's not the most popular MT out there, but there is something I really like about the Flik.  The fact the tools are all on the outside is definitely one of the good things about it. :)

Thanks for the info.  :tu: I started a thread wondering about the colored MP600's. Do you have a link to any more info on these? Thank you.

I added in some links to older MTo threads on coloured Gerbers to your new thread.

BTW  Congratulations on your finds (nice photos), your ebay-fu is obviously better than mine because I didn't see either the blue one or the red one offered for sale  (maybe I'll have to get you to give me some tips  ;) ).


That's because I didn't get them off EBAY. I don't use EBAY remember.   :whistle:


Don't ask where either.  :twak:   :D





Thanks buddy. You know who you are!  ;)

To me they are very much like the PST in that way.  So many variations within variations and finishes and plier heads, etc etc.

That's great for collecting which I love to do, but I mean't more as a usable tool. The tool itself reminds me of a Swisstool quality with that old "good steel" look and feel that the early leathermans had. Does that make sense?

Yes for sure.  I like the feel of the steel and like how they can be totally disassembled easily for cleaning and service.  No bells and whistles just good ole fashioned usability in these.

WH867 Dennis posted pics of his a couple years ago, and I've been on the lookout for one ever since. But guess what! :nanadance:

Check out those grey lock releases, and stainless plier head clips. :multi:

NIce one  :tu:  These aren't very common and so take some finding.

I have one the same (NIB), and also another one (on the way) that appears to be a bit different. In the (less then fantastic) photos, it looks like it has black lock releases and black plier head clips (along with wear and rust and marks- but it was fairly cheap).  I haven't seen one like this before:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/331094565941 (click on "See original listing" to see all photos).

What say you all ?  I can see the silver plier head clips being easily changed for the more common black ones, but not the lock releases.  Maybe they ran out of grey ones near the end of the FPR run, or just decided to go with black ?

I agree mate, that one from the listing does definitely look like it's got black lock releases and, I think, head retention clips.  I wonder why? :think:

I'll dig the Fit out of its lead lined chamber later for a photo :tu:

Good question. :think: I have a blunt-nose FPR that has black plastic and black clips. I thought maybe the gray one Dennis has was maybe a one-off, until I found mine. Didn't realize you had one also Greg. :salute: Yeah, maybe it was a simple matter of not having enough gray plastic/stainless clips to do the whole FPR run? :P


Hey on a related note, check out that decal down in the corner of my photo. It is one of those funny pictures that kids get from gumball machines, where if you tip it slightly the image changes. One view shows the MP600 jaws in, move it slightly and the image shows the jaws out. It came in the box with the tool. I thought it was pretty neat. :)

Damn !  Another FPR variant to look for  :(  And there I was thinking I had the older Gerber MT FPRs covered reasonably well with my two original Mr Pinchy's, one MultiLite and black and grey Needle Nose MP600s.  I should have known better    :facepalm:   I suppose now you are going to tell me all about FPR MPTs and MP400s and MP650's and whatever else  ::)  :rofl:

Hey, a click-less flicky !  tres 8) !  But the only draw-back is that it doesn't annoy every person within ear-shot as you flick the jaws in and out  :pok:

True enough! And not nearly so likely to get you fired from your job for excess flicking! :D


As regards Gerber FPR's, here I was thinking the blunt nose MP600's were more common than the needle-nose version. :think: Seems like I've seen several blunts for sale over the years, but this latest one I got was only the second needle nose FPR I've ever seen.

Might be just a coincidence though. :P

My MP600 arrived from lowtech today!!  :woohoo:  This is one nice solid feeling tool!!  I can see why people love them so much!  It's comfortable to hold, and you can squeeze it as hard as you want and it doesn't bother your hands at all.

I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the inside tools, but they're not as bad as I thought they would be.  Much better than a butterfly style MT, and you get to flick the plier head out to access them, which so far is making me grin!!  :D

I'll try and get some better pics in the next couple of days, but here's a couple for now.
