After decades of pinched palms cutting wire with the MP600 it was time for a change.  I knew what I wanted.  A painless Gerber, with locking blades and a driver that accepted 1/4" bits.  I looked around and there it was, with spring loaded pliers.   
So far the CD gets used for basic light tasks.  When things get serious I have real tools close at hand.  I used it today to install a license plate frame. No I am not posting a image of my license plate, thank you very much.  I'm not impressed with the Phillips bit, but that's unimportant, I'll replace it with a impact rated bit soon enough.  I all ready removed the flat blade bit and a 1/4" socket driver rides in the bit holder now.  A 3" bit extension is in the pouch with the bit assortment. Maybe I'll add a few common sockets in the future.  I accept that the wire cutters are inadequate.  I have real tools to cut wire.  The pry tip is fine for small stuff.  If I need more my GAK has it covered.

My wife is right now using my center drive wire cutters to cut fake plants up to make autumn wreaths to sell. I used to get mad at this and now I'm just attracted. She always used to freak out when my tools are being used and I come home, glad they are being used and not shelf queens.

I finally acquired a Center Drive when it was included in the Surprise Box I received last month.  I like the spring loaded pliers, the very generous sized knife blade, and the sheath that can be worn horizontally is interesting too.  The date code on mine is 0871018D.  There's still a Surprise Box (or two) available to whoever claims it (or them) by the way. :pok:

Hey I can join….unfortunately I can’t seem to post pics lately.  I did get the CD last week and I enjoy it.  It actually checks most of the boxes for my preferences, but a big strike is the bulk.  It would be great if there were a smaller version, but the driver would probably be compromised.

I'll second that.  I don't know if it could be done, but a smaller version sure would be sweet!

I bought my CentreDrive as soon as it was available through the Gerber Pro program. I as saddened when they then released a version with scissors.

I am at work and will post pics of mine later as it’s in my truck.
