Gerber Flik Multitool -

The Gerber Flik is a great every day use multi-tool. This Flik Multi Plier (Black) has non-reflective black coating and features one-handed opening sliding jaw pliers and outboard tools. What is great about outboard tools is that you can access them without physically opening the pliers. When you do open the pliers, you will find that the Flik is aptly named as it opens smoothly with just the flick of a wrist. The Saf.T.Plus locking system makes sure the tools stay in place while in use, thus preventing unwanted closing.

Couldn't Be Happier

Even though there have been mixed reviews of this product, I've had nothing but good experiences with it. The pliers extend with a quick flick of the wrist and the blades and other tools lock firmly in place. I have not had a single lock-up or unwanted snag when deploying any of the tools, and I especially like how firmly the blades lock into place and will not slip until unlocked. Compared to the other similar products out there, especially from Leatherman, this tool is much more reasonably priced and more full-featured for the cost.

I would recommend this tool (and have) to anybody who needs a tool to simply keep around the house or to keep available on the next camping trip.

One of the best

Gerber has done it again. I've owned a few Gerber tools and all have outlasted my ability to keep track of them. This one combines Gerber's famous one-handed opening pliers with one-handed-opening knife blades. I've only had it a few days, but it's solid, well-crafted, and on par with the fine workmanship of the other Gerber products I've owned.

The blades are easy to deploy, the right size, and well-designed. Not only would I recommend this to a friend, but I would recommend this tool to anyone. We should all have a tool like this so that we may "fend for ourselves."

Everyday Use

Owned a previous version of this tool and my ability to keep track of it was its only fault.

I purchased this one to replace my old one as an everyday carry multi-tool. I find having one at all times is far too handy. I prefer the Gerber Flik to offerings from Leatherman because the pliers are dead simple to deploy. As something to carry everyday, I found that the Leatherman Wave was a bit too large to do so comfortably.

This updated version feels more solid than my previous one.

Very smooth functionality

The Gerber Flik Multi-tool was a great purchase. I am very happy with the product. The ease of use to get the pliers out with only one hand is really smooth. Getting the screw driver bits out is a little more difficult but I haven't had to use them yet.. A++ product.

Gerber Flik Multitool

Baught a Gerber Flik Multitool about 10 months ago, over all it is a Good tool. The only problem that I've had is that one of the flat blade screw drivers broke when trying to tighten a screw. Other than that it is great.

Good Quality

This product is very well made. Gave it to my son for Xmas and so far, it has survived his abuse.

Negative Reviews:

Good quality, questionable design features

I've had Gerber Multitools for about ten years now and love the living daylights out of them, they're like a third hand. I bought this one after losing the last faithful model and I really like some features and am really disappointed by some others. What I like:
-Accessories that open to the outside without having to open the pliers
-Good positive lock mechanism that also helps kick out the blade you're looking for
-Extremely high quality steel and good edges on all the cutting implements.
-Pliers deploy with a quick flick but don't completely lock* What I don't like:
-*Pliers have a lock that requires you to open the handle all the way after deploying, otherwise the jaws won't fully clamp down.
-Pliers are a lot shorter than old designs, require handle to open further, don't feel as handy.
-Pinch design for the side-cutters on the pliers makes them basically useless (need to go back to the scissor style)
-Scissors have blades that are about twice as long as the old design. This makes the outer half inch useless for cutting and they're a lot clumsier because of their length. In short, I'm not very thrilled about the two implements I use the most. I think I'm going to have a go at another model. This time though I'm going to the store to thoroughly check everything out before I buy rather than be disappointed by something I receive online.

Pliers get stuck sometimes

I have had two of these multi-tools and have experienced problems with both.If the tool is stored in the sheath with the pliers facing down, the pliers will slowly slip out of the locked position and be visible outside of the sheath. This is not normally and issue, but it can cause damage to gear if you don't notice that the pliers are exposed. The only way to resolve this issue was to store the tool with the pliers pointing up in the sheath.The other issue was that sometimes after using the pliers they would not unlock to be stowed back inside the tool. I had to repeatedly hit them on a piece of wood to get the release mechanism unstuck.The knife blades and other tools worked well, but the plier problems caused me to return this multi-tool..I think I will stick with the Leatherman Wave.

Nice idea, but don't buy

I got the flik multitool for fishing: using the pliers to take the hook out, use the wire/line cutter to cut line, and have all the other tools in it. Unfortunately, the wire/line cutters are terrible and are dull. In order to cut fishing line, I had to pull the line hard. But the main problem with these is the one hand opening mechanism. In theory, its a good idea, but in practice it gets jammed occasionally and once it gets jammed hard, you aren't fixing it. The mechanism also uses lots of plastic components in it. Buy a different gerber or leatherman instead.

Needs A Redesign

After struggling with this thing I finally took it back. I've always trusted Gerber knives so had high hopes that this would be equal in quality. Wrong … Extending & retracting the pliers or opening this thing was extremely frustrating … only after whacking it a few times could I finally get it to open. Bad design for a what could be a great tool.
Another minor problem was the pliers, when sheathed & pointing down, would extend. Just another irritation.
A good thing is that finish and craftsmanship was excellent keeping with what I would expect from Gerber.

Not great

I had an earlier version of this tool which worked much better. The plier deployment setup on the newer version is too complicated, and seems to be adding quite a bit of weight to the tool. Not to mention is doesn't work as well as the older design. The worst part is that the pliers won't stay retracted, and always slide out when not in use.
Durango Doug at REI on 04/04/2013


Used it three times. The pliers stuck halfway in and would not retract or extend. The whole tool locked up and cannot be unlocked. This thing is over complicated and designed to fail.
