Gerber Crucial Multi-Tool with Strap Cutter
SKU #: Gerber-31-001518
This light, everyday carry multi-tool gets an unexpected upgrade with professional-grade tools that are reliably tough. Made of stainless steel and available in multiple colors, this tool has precise needle nose pliers and 8 other components secured in a convenient butterfly style.
Meet the tough but light Crucial. With professional-grade components of precise needle nose pliers along with eight other carefully selected features, this everyday carry essential multi-tool belongs to the ever-diverse, ever-popular series of Gerber multi-tools.
Prepared For Action
The Crucial steps right up to respond to the surprise hurdles life springs so routinely. It offers the partially serrated blade and the Phillips and flat drivers, all of which are liner locking for safe application, to tackle the business end of daily snags. Use the partially serrated blade to make short work of rope cutting or package opening, and tighten down loose screws around the house, the office, or out on a work site with the Phillips or flat head screwdrivers.
Compact But Not Dainty
In addition to the knife and screwdrivers, the Crucial contains a nicely long pair of needle nose pliers, a bottle opener, V-cut wire cutters, a carabiner clip, and an ingenious pocket clip, making this tool the shrewdest of daily carries. The handles of the tool are ergonomically curved for a solid grip and increased torque. Beautifully incorporating its precise assortment of tools within the unobtrusive, 3.5-inch frame, the slim, lean Crucial lets you face trouble without fear.
I would recommend this item to a friend.

I have used it every day, multiple times a day, for 2 years. It's held up well and the pliers are surprisingly strong for their thin construction. Unfortunately it must be opened and closed with two hands(unlike the gerber Octane and larger multitools). The octane has stronger pliers and a 1 handed opening and closing but because of the location of the pocket clip it opens in your pocket. Don't have to worry about that with this one.
Pros:Solid construction Blade and tools are accessible without opening the pliers. Small Pliers work for most of my daily needs Doesn't open in your pocket
Cons:Two handed operation Pliers aren't quite up to all tasks. Screw drives are a little too short for some tasks.

I like the tools on this product except the pliers. Each has a nice locking liner... very nice if you've ever had a tool close on your hand while using. The knife came sharp and usable. The screwdrivers also are functional. The pliers, though, are very narrow in the bite, like tiny needle nose pliers. They don't feel strong or able to get a good grip. The tool overall is on the small side and may be difficult if you have big hands.
Pros:locking liners functionality sharp knife
Cons:pliers size (maybe)
