Gerber Cable Dawg

We were able to take a closer look at the Gerber Cable Dawg at Warrior Expo West. It is an impressive tool designed specifically for military Information Technology specialists but in our conversations with readers we have come to realize that it has just as much applicability in the civilian market. It features a Wire cutter, CAT5 jacket cutter, RJ45 Crimper Head, Wire strippers, Knife blade, Magnetic driver extension with tool heads. Additionally, the handles are crafted from glass filled nylon to help reduce weight and the side of the handle that houses the driver extension and tool heads can be removed.

Gerber products are available for agency and unit purchase through

    Brilliant! I could really have used this when I was installing cable and internet on the civilian side.

    Looks nice, just can’t find it on their website or anywhere else to buy.

    At $300+ it’s a bit pricey, but I would have loved one of those back in my days as a Navy radioman. I used one of the first generation Leatherman PSTs as my go to tool in those days. USN, class of ’83 to ’89. Hoo-Yah.
