Think the Cork version is a can opener.

I guess the stubby pry bar will only be effective if used in one direction?

Hope that Gerber don’t carry the nasty laser engraved GEBER text that’s halfway down the blade into product.

But the overall design is very original.  :like:

Gerber is the company that COULD provide real competition..the Armbar is seriously well designed...but pocket clip ????!?!?!? Come on guys...


The One that really makes me  :drool: :drool: :drool: is the lockdown though.

I'm decidedly anti-pocket-clip except for cases like this....  This looks like it will get snagged on something on/in the pocket on the way out.  Surely there must be some way...

Poncho you mention your Charge knife and I see the DNA in the Armbar.  Whats nice is the size as compared to the 91mm SAK.  That 1/4 driver is a serious win in such a small compact package  :like:

I'm a little disapointed that the driver isn't locking, they say everithing locks except the driver which is a slipjoint :facepalm:

I'd rather have a locking screwdriver and a slippie blade :whistle:

As long as the snap is as good as say the Philips on an Explorer, I don’t think I will have an issue with that.  :think:

 Veeeeeerrrrrrrryyyyyy exciting! Looks like a proper serious contender to the SAK. Love Gerbers designs.

I know what you mean.
Though the design of the bit driver is not a straight line. It looks to me that pressure onto it would not cause it to flip close easily  :dunno:

If you'll permit me to play at Armchair Engineer...

The tool is offset so it's in-line like the Center Drive.  This should help keep the vector of force straight back, and there should be less of a chance of it folding during use. That's my guess.

Megan was really taken with them, and I have to say I think I really like the streamlined design as well.  They kind of remind me of the Leatherman "Half a Juice" models, except that they seem complete... unlike the Half a Juice models where I felt like I was paying for a whole tool, and only getting part!

Talking to gerber to send me one for review, that way all I have to do is buy the other for a real comparison. I have really high hopes for this tool.
