Gerber Vise Multi Tool
It's a bottle opener with about nine other tools. At least, thatﾒs one way to look at it! These pocket-sized pliers pack multiple functions into a tiny package that fits on a keychain. The Vise gives you more than plier capabilities thanks to a variety of handy tools.

EXCELLENT GERBER MINI MULTI TOOLS
I PURCHASED TWO GREAT HIGH QUALITY GERBER MINI MULTI TOOLS SOLD AT AN EXCELLENT PRICE DELIVERED TO MY DOOR IN QUICK TIME - WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE!
Barely noticed until the 'job'.
Slightly bigger than the car keys but without the concomitant spinal compression of using the UK road (trench) system, this little bugger packs the daily duties without ego. "I'm here, what can I do?" The blades are good for small ad hoc jobs ("you got something to cut this with?') and the pliers have so far drawn more splinters out than they were probably intended for, as well as that 'can't grip that bit' moments.
So my son now has one, because he's not a dick who takes a blade to the playground because he's been brought up with knives used for their proper purpose. Rock on Gerber, my choice for daily duties.
Great and small
Great piece of kit - it is small though - think key ring attachment!
Incredible tool for the money
What needs to be said, a Gerber multi-tool for a tenner!! Overall, I'm very pleased with it, a small tool that's slightly larger than a Leatherman Micra but packing lots more!
If I were to take a deep dive into it there are a few points I have noted about it, first point being the finish! I have noted whilst handling it that all the exposed edges are quite sharp, there's been no finishing before the anodising process.
Secondly, although not a huge one, the blades are not sharp! Not a big one as sharpening will take just a few minutes but still.....!
Thirdly and this is a little more important, the pliers, whilst nicely sprung, have a little play laterally - meaning that it's possible to close the jaws and the tips not line up perfectly each time! This is not overly concerning but it might mean that if there is play from new it might get worse over time!
Lastly, the split ring attachment point: even if you don't put a lanyard on it, it is on the end of the blade pivots, meaning as you pull either the straight or the serrated blades out, the ring dangles in the way, worsened with a lanyard attached!!
All of that said, for ten quid it is far better than a Rolson you'd pick up at a hardware store! Would I buy it at the full price of £22, possibly not, chooosing to spend that little more and get a Leatherman Micra!
