Pros: A real man's multitool. This baby can replace half of your tools box. Sturdy and durable, and has a great grip. High quality pliers, a diversity of screwdrivers and the tool itself is a real eye candy. It's no wonder the Army is using Gerber multitools almost exclusively nowadays. Probably in top 3 blades one can find in a multitool today. Easy access and smart design for one hand opening. Practical pouch. This is a tool built to last, no question about it.

Cons: The black oxide finish does look great but it can leave marks on your hands that are not easy to clean. This stops after few weeks of use or if you just wipe it thoroughly a few times.

Having dilemmas about which multitool to get?

Then you are in luck, because you have stumbled upon a website that will make the whole decision a lot easier.

Bear with me for a minute or two and let’s see if Gerber Needlenose Multitool is the right multi tool for you in this concise review.

But how is this website any different from the other review websites:

It’s different in two crucial ways:

  1. We don’t just compile existing information like any other review site, we go out and find actual owners of this tool on forums and through social media and contact them to ask them about the multi tool
  2. The second reason is the fact that I’ve worked in a multitool factory for 20 years and I know how to look for quality, I know how the product is made, the materials, ways to cut corners on quality and how to determine if somebody is doing it – you can now basically look at me as your insider

We’ll do this review in 3 steps:

  1. We look at the features and what the company making it is saying
  2. We look at the PROs and CONs as per the people using this tool
  3. I give my final resume and the Overall Quality Rating

So, let us get down to business:

The PROS as per the actual users:

  • The best knife I have seen in a multitool and I own quite a few…
  • Sturdy…and I know it’s going to last long because I have used my previous Gerber for over 7 years…no wonder the army exclusively uses Gerber knives and tools…
  • I have been using it every day since I received it six months ago and I am loving it…just the right number of tools…no complaints really…
  • This baby is a lifesaver…I own a couple of these so that I have one wherever I go, in my truck, in my cottage…
  • I work at maintenance in a hotel and this is an amazing multitool…loving the way how the pliers open using just one hand…
  • Quality tool built to last…
  • The design of pliers is not just smart and innovative, it seem essential for the security of the person using it
  • If you want a tool that you will actually use it, this is the tool for you…
  • Very sturdy and it can handle basically any job that I have come across since I received it…
  • Amazing cutters, I was able to cut a coin in half without much of an effort…
  • As a soldier, this tool has everything I really need…
  • Excellent quality/price ratio…
  • This met my every expectation and works exactly as advertised…the price is a real bargain…
  • An exceptional piece of equipment, I keep thinking of new ways and new little jobs I can use it for…
  • I owned the previous version of this tool and now I upgraded to this baby and very happy with it…loving the new design of the pliers…finally a tool that will not collapse on your knuckles when you are using the knife…
  • I bought this tool just because of the fact that every single tool locks in place…a refreshing feeling not having to worry if the knife will cut you because it tries to close while you are using it…
  • Great grip and a nice solid feel to it…
  • This tool has not changed a bit and I have been using it on daily basis for years now…amazing quality for the price…
  • Great seller and expedite shipping…
  • You can spend a lot more on a multitool but I don’t really see where the difference in quality could be, this Gerber does everything the more expensive tools would do and is obviously built to last…
  • Might sound weird but after months of using this Gerber, I feel like I am naked if I leave the house without it…

The CONS as per the actual users:

  • The black stuff was leaving marks on my hands for months…
  • I returned my piece because it came with scratches…I have to say they were very professional about the returning process…
  • The knife on the one I received looked like it was used and I returned it and replaced it with a Leatherman
  • The pictures that I saw are not the same as what I received, the blade is kind of different…not and issue for functionality but I hate it when I get things that are not exactly the same as advertised…

My review resume:

Overall Quality Rating 46 out of 50

A solid 46 out of 50 in the Overall Quality Rating for this Gerber and a solid 4.5 stars from me.

Simple – very good value for money and great customer support makes this tool a real bargain.
