Although some manufacturers have created specific multi-tools for various applications, little has changed over the years for all-in-one tools since Tim Leatherman created the first “Boy Scout knife with pliers” back in the 1980s. While convenient, the multitools were rarely something you want to use unless you were in pinch and didn’t have standard tools nearby.

With their newly-announced Center-Drive multi-tool, however, Gerber has created a multi-tool that is so considered, you may even want to use it even when you’re not in a pinch.


Starting with the full-sized center-axis screwdriver, the company has built the multi-tool for maximum torque and rotation. As anybody who has put together a small assembly with an off-axis screwdriver might tell you—it ain’t fun.

Additionally, the Center-Drive includes a 30% longer outboard blade for more serious cutting power and a one-thumb opening sliding jaws for quickly accessing your full range of tools singlehandedly.

At the affordable price of $89, the Center-Drive is priced competitively against other multi-tools on the market—so you may want to add this one to your holiday shopping list.

The Center-Drive is available November 1st at the following retailers.
