Gerber Gear Round Up – Bear Grylls Compact Multi-Tool

As you know, we’ve got Scouts here at SSD. Each week over on Tactical Fanboy they cover another product from Gerber. Awhile back I went out and bought one each of most of the available Bear Grylls products. We expanded it with a few other Gerber products. The deal is that they can reach into the box and try out an item so long as they write about it afterward. This is one of the write ups. Remember, it’s written by a kid.

Multi Tool

The Bear Grylls compact multi-tool features ten components:

  • Wire Cutters
  • Serrated Knife
  • Fine Edge Knife
  • Small flat driver
  • Lanyard ring
  • Tweezers
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Medium flat driver
  • Bottle opener
  • It’s lightweight and compact, perfect for fitting on a keychain or in a pocket. External components and nail nicks allow for easy access to tools.

    I like the variety of tools present on this multi-tool. The nail nicks make them easier to get out. Having a lanyard ring on the tool is good because it can be kept on a keyring or secured to other gear. I also like the small size, but at the same time that makes it a bit harder to find if you misplace it.

      Surprised it doesn’t have an awl, since Bear’s market is primarily bushcrafter types. Nice brief review, but could’ve included the price as well as comments on the overall quality and the size.

      And where is the can opener?

      I Have A Gerber Almost Identical To It. Nail-Nicks On It Suck And Crack Your Nails.

      • Bushman says:

        Nail-nicks always suck because it’s redundant. Nails can be easily cut with sharp knife.

      HEY! I like brief, that kid gave me all I needed to know about the product! Works for me! Won’t buy it, but at least I didn’t have to read about 2 pages of Bear Grylls butt-kissing to get to the TOOL review!
