Gerber Suspension Multi-Pliers.
If we tell you that this engineering masterpiece was inspired by the bridges of Portland, Oregon—we've got more than our share, here—don't make the mistake of thinking that Gerber's gotten all misty-eyed and romantic. On the contrary, the Suspension has all the down-and-dirty performance characteristics a tough guy would expect.
This is a classic workhorse with spring-loaded pliers, our patented Saf.T.Plus™ component locking system, a ballistic nylon sheath, and the very same structural integrity that goes into every Gerber tool.
Oh sure, it's a sleek looking son-of-gun. And the open-frame configuration is something of a break-though where the industry is concerned. But just because it’s got nice lines, there's no reason you can't use it in some pretty ugly situations. In fact, we dare ya.
Includes: Lifetime Limited Warranty

This thing came in handy during my seasons with the National Park Service, Ticks were a daily problem... multiple times a day. One day I pulled 32 ticks off of me, only half or so of which were embedded but you get the idea. This thing killed many a tick and was eventually dubbed the tick slayer. The needle nose pliers are spot on even after heavy abuse, allowing me to pull ticks with ease. Definitely a solid multi tool, haven't had any problem with the tools holding up to whatever I've thrown at them. The blade is nice and sharp, and seems to stay sharp. Downside, the case is garbage, it still holds it, but that's about it, barely closes, frayed all over, looks to be needing replacement soon. Seems like a good deal, I got it as a present, but I would probably pay this much if I were in the market.
Pretty solid multi, but after a while you can definitely tell that it isn't made quite as nice as a Leatherman or a Victorinox multi-tool. This is a big step forward for the Gerber line-up, which hopefully continues doing what it is doing, and getting better. The lock up is pretty tight, the blades come sharp, and the tools are functional. But personally if I could only have one tool, it would be a Leatherman, since I know from long experience how well they are all made.
This thing is too heavy for my purposes. It would be a good leave in the car tool. The thumb studs for the blade came off after very little use and all the tools have developed a lot of play front to back and side to side. I am usually pretty hard on my stuff however. This thing just cant take the abuse imho.
