The Gerber Dual-Force multi-tool can complete a multitude of tasks with over a dozen built-in gadgets…not a big surprise there, that’s what multi-tools do. But this one seems like it might do so just a little better than many of its cousins.

A big part of Gerber’s “2022 multi-tool drop”, the Dual-Force appears to be an excellent option for those looking for a multi-tool.

Gerber Dual-Force Design

Gerber seeks to provide a reliable and durable multi-tool that can replace the toolbox with two times the grip force and two times stronger jaws than competitors. Their center-axis technology utilized on the Center-Drive, a previous multi-tool by Gerber, is also present on the Dual-Force.

The center-axis technology allows the Center-Axis bit driver to function as an actual screwdriver, providing maximum torque and rotation. In fact, with addons like this, the case for replacing your toolbox at home only increases.

Center-Axis Bit Driver

The butterfly design of the handle allows for Gerber to boast a 47% more narrow handspan on the Gerber Dual-Force compared to competitors. Consequently, this allows for a better hand grip and control of the tool. The construction jaws are created with a dual position slip-lock design that allows for readjustment to whatever task you are doing without sacrificing grip strength.

All of these tools contribute to its usefulness in any manner of situations you may find yourself in. 

Over a dozen tools available

There is also extra storage built into the Gerber Dual-Force for bits that you may want to add. 

The fabric sheath included with the multi-tool is stylish and can be fitted vertically or horizontally around a belt line. Nevertheless, Measuring .84 inches wide and 4.65 inches long, with a weight of 12oz, the Dual-Force stays compact while providing plenty of utility and lots of choices to pick from.

Final Thoughts

Directly from the Gerber website:

“For tough jobs, it’s often easier to head back to the toolbox for a proper set of pliers—until now. The Dual-Force isn’t your average multi-tool, boasting layered construction to provide 2x the jaw strength and 2x the force to manhandle any task put in front of it. The adjustable 2-position slip joint jaw and extra-large teeth grasp firmly onto a variety of fasteners and apply unparalleled control. Additional features include a center-axis bit driver, plain edge knife blade, fine/coarse file, saw, and additional bit storage.”
