User Review: Gerber Freehand
Source: received it as a personal gift
This multi-tool does it all. I take this multi-tool everywhere. I hate flying on airplanes because I can't take this tool with me. I own other multi-tools including a Winchester, a Leathermen, and a Topeak Alien (for mountain biking) BUT this is the tool I always take to work and on the trail. The Topeak Alien has tools that are unique to mountain biking, but this Gerber has never let me down.
- The canvas pouch wears a hole at the tip of the tool
The plier feature engages easily, the locking features for each tool is reliable. I have had this Gerber for years and have never had a problem. The way the handles are formed they do not dig into your hand (like the Leatherman) and it feels comfortable.
This tool is always on my hip.
