There are lots of things you can do with one only one hand. Now you can add another to the list. Portland, OR-based Gerber recently released the Center-Drive Multi-Tool. They say the tools are bigger, stronger and easier to access than the competition. The Center-Drive, without additional tool kit options, will retail for $89.99.
Here’s what they told us:
Gerber, leading the industry in knives, tools and equipment for over 75 years, announces the introduction of the multi-tool that will redefine the category – the Center-Drive. Challenging the status quo, it delivers real and compelling advancements in capability and serves the professional end user like none before it.
The Center-Drive. Gerber’s new multi-tool offers uncompromising performance through revolutionary design. Innovative Center Axis Tech™ aligns the full-size driver in the center of the tool to yield maximum torque and rotation, just like the real thing. No productivity is sacrificed with the addition of a 30% larger outboard blade and one-thumb opening sliding jaws. Full size, real tools – the multi-tool just got a reality check.
Screw Conventional Thinking.
It seems so obvious – but until now no multi-tool has ever offered a full-size driver on the center axis with a standard bit. The result is all the ergonomics and torque you’d expect from the real thing, ready at the flick of a thumb.
Cut the B.S.
Get right down to business. A single flick of the thumb gets you access to a full-size outboard knife that is 30% larger than the competition. Don’t worry; reverse thumb support gets the job done in confidence. No compromises – in no time.
Bend it to Your Will.
Adjust to your environment, or force it to adjust to you. It’s your choice. One-thumb opening sliding jaws deliver instant command of the spring-loaded pliers, so you can take control of whatever’s at hand.
