Truth, but I still prefer it over the non notched or the tungsten carbide cutters Gerber uses. :facepalm:
 :cheers:

I wonder how big of a kit would be to pair it to a Centerdrive!?!

I think the two would have too much overlap. For me the dualforce is a better version of the Centerdrive. I never liked the pliers on the centerdrive. For some reason they do not grab very well. The MPs are much better.

I have high hopes in the dualforce pliers  :popcorn:

Pic borrowed from the MTO fb group. Not sure if these are cutters or crimpers  :think:
If I remember correctly, wait, what was I saying?

Im very happy there are NO mediocre small implements on the inside and I'm also THRILLED that there is no terrible scissor in this tool. Why would a scissor ever make sense with this type of tool? Furthermore, what size scissor would make sense? Having a scissor to trim your nails, cut a piece of paper, or other small task makes literally no sense in a tool designed for HD work. Its not like they are going to put something comparable to a surge scissor in there..and even then..the surge scissor is both too small and too weak to tackle the kind of tasks that a dedicated electricians scissors would be used for. So yea..I love it as is..If you want an all , just get a square AWL bit to put in one of the spare holders.

I was clicking about on t'interweb and came across this.

It appears you need to be a trader to order one (I'm not) and as such I can't see anymore detail :dunno:

However, the price includes VAT, or UK sales tax at 20%, with a retail price of £89.95 ($124.77 USD)

Sooo... did anyone hear anything about the Dual Force recently maybe? Will this be a thing?
I can't imagine Gerber wanting to miss out the Christmas sales  :think:

I don't know if this is an imported or USA-made model, but I'd presume a lot of components are overseas-made, so most likely, production is held up by all the logistics problems going on right now.

One of the responses to my videos relating to the Dual force corrected me, saying that it would be made in Taiwan.

Surprised they did just a rescue hook instead of a blade with integrated rescue hook like on the mp1-mro. 

https://www.knifecenter.com/item/GB30001031/gerber-mp1-mro-military-multi-tool-glass-filled-nylon-handles


I also can't believe the price of the dual force is only $78.
 Unless the quality is absolute garbage, which I don't think it will be, it's going to be over hell of a deal. Talk about a firing a shot across the bow of Leatherman. Heavy duty unique multitool vs a ripoff leather sheath. Can you imagine if Gerber comes out with their own version of the crunch in the same general design theme as the center drive and dual force. Now that would be awesome.

Heck, I'd like to see a center drive themed knife with decent blade steel (s30v, 20cv, magnacut,...) and axis style lock (both of which Gerber has finally started using) to compete with the free k series. Maybe knife blade, center drive driver on one handle side, and saw or file (2 versions) on other handle side.

A sliding back lock similar to the demko shark lock, cold steel atlas lock, or sandrin knives Torino recoil lock would be neat too and could open up the possibility of having 2 knife blades, one plain edge and one serrated.

Those would definitely steal some market share from Leatherman and maybe finally give Leatherman the kick in the pants they need to start innovating again.

I'm really excited over this one.  If it's built as well as my MP600s and Center Drive, I'll be very happy.

It could possibly be better even...I'm still a bit shocked they delivered something so well thought out.

I'm on the email list, just hoping that the quality is good. A slip-joint plier is really appealing. Along with knife, file and screwdriver bits this covers all the needs of my daily work. I currently use a Surge daily, it will be interesting to see how it compares.

To be honest, having two bit-holder instead feels like getting to mediocre implements. I assume that most people will carry bit-kit anyway, so these two spots could have found a better use. On the up side, it looks like this one would be more comfortable when using the driver.

It wouldn't be the internet without people complaining.

Gerber has a lot of great designs... where they usually fall short is quality. I mean the Lockdown family is a pretty compelling new design (apart from the large thumb-studs) but the shoddy quality pretty much killed them.

Wondering if the person who posted in the fb MTO page is here as well? Everyone is curious to hear your thoughts or see more pics of your dual force! CAD89.99 doesn’t seem that bad for something that big.

Yes, but no! I emailed Gerber (UK) a month or so ago and they said;

A) Don't got it.
B) Won't got it.
C) Email parent company (Fiskars)

Essentially: Get one from the US or wait.....forever  ::)

Unfortunately it was only listed briefly on Canadian Tire's website for sale.  It seems a couple were sold in Canada.  I haven't checked if they are listed as in stock yet as the store won't ship to the US.

I have seen June 25th listed as when they will be available at an online store to the US.  I imagine it might be sooner.

Looking forward to seeing a video / review / write up on it!

It’ll probably take until Christmas before that thing shows up locally on my side of the globe.
