The Gerber Center-Drive multi-tool was designed to handle any task! This multi-tool offers excellent performances without compromise. It is the result of the revolutionary design. Each foldable item locks when opened. This prevents unwanted closing and works very well. The Gerber Center Drive is a full-sized multi-tool with fully-fledged tools.
Screwdriver with liner lock
The Gerber Center Drive is the first multi-tool with a fully-fledged screwdriver on the middle axis and a standard bit. The magnetic bit can be replaced and comes with a philips-head and flat-head bit. You store one bit on the screwdriver and the other in the bit holder. But you can also replace the bit for one you already own. All standard sizes will fit, without extension! The screwdriver will never close when you don't want it to because of the liner lock. Because the lever falls behind the hinging part of the screwdriver it can no longer return to a closed position. This is only possible when the lever is pushed aside by the user.
One-handed opening pliers
Another important tool of the Gerber Center Drive is the pliers. Can be opened and closed with one hand because of the sliding mechanism. Because of the spring the pliers will open automatically, different from most multi-tools where you need to open the pliers by hand. The wire cutter can also be replaced when blunt.
Full knife, one-handed opener, liner lock
The large droppoint blade is made from 420HC steel. A top-quality type of steel. The blade is razor-sharp and has a cutting edge of no less than 7.5 cm. A lot bigger than most multi-tool knives. Once opened the knife will immediately be locked. As such the tool can never close when you don't want it to, also making it perfect for heavy-duty tasks. When opening and closing the blade you hear a familiar click.
The Gerber Center-Drive comes with a bit set and a MOLLE compatible nylon sheath. This nylon sheath is meant to be attached to, for instance, a backpack with a MOLLE compatible mounting system. This is often used in the tactical world. The front compartment in the sheath offers you enough room to store a pen or other item.

- Torx: T10 en T15.
- Philips: Nr.1 and Nr. 3.
- American square (Robertson): S1 and S2.
