Pros

The leatherman has more tools on it but its stiffer. The philips screw driver is #2 (although it is very short and clumsy) the tool is not heavy and bulky.

The replaceable carbide inserts are very handy in case you cut something you should not be cutting. The only thing that might be an issue are the carbide triangular cutters. You can wear one out and then rotate it to a fresh cutter two more times.

New locking system is a very good idea. I love how the gerber tool open with a flick of the wrist. Locks are great, and double as a comfortable place to put one's thumb.

The finish is outstanding and maybe improved over the previous generation. Gonna have to order another and maybe a spare lol. My old one is in my surveyor's tool belt, and i carry the new one at all other times. This is the second gerber i have bought...  Read More

All the tools seem sturdy and well made


And the wire cutters should only be used on copper or small gage steel broke a set trying to extend their capability


Have gone through 3 of them and gerber replaced every one when they died for free

Shipping


I got this one to get me by while my gerber diesel multi tool was being sent back to gerber


Did have to wait a little bit longer than expected for delivery but there was good communication with the seller concerning this

Competitiveness


Better than the needlenose pliers on the competition for work in the trades


Imho gerber multipliers are the benchmark by which all others are measured
