The Gerber MP600 is a compact stainless steel multi tool. This multi tool comes with a number of versatile tools amongst which needle nose pliers with a one-handed opening, wire cutters, a knife with a smooth blade, a knife with a serrated blade, a file, can and bottle opener, ruler, Philip head screwdriver and a couple of flat blade screwdrivers. When opened all tools are firmly kept in place by a lock. This lock makes sure the tools won’t close when you don’t want them to!
Needle nose pliers
The pliers can easily be opened thanks to the useful sliding mechanism. You open the pliers by pressing both buttons on the side. The spring will ensure that the beak of the pliers will open automatically. The tip is small enough for the more precise tasks, such as bending fish hooks or removing splinters. The beak has been enhanced with small serrations that offer additional grip. The spine of the beak has been rounded off to make sure you can easily reach narrow spaces and bend wires. The pliers has also been enhanced with a wire cutter you can use to cut small branches and stems.
Fine edge blade
The drop-point blade is made from 420HC stainless steel. This stainless type of steel contains more carbon than regular 420 steel. Because of this addition the knife will stay sharp a lot longer. The shape of the blade makes it perfect for practically all cutting jobs. You can easily open the blade from the inside of the tool using only one hand. The sharpened side of the blade is approximately 5.5 cm and the blade has been sharpened under a 30 degrees angle.
This blade is made from 420HC stainless steel. This knife has a solid tip thanks to the ‘sheepfoot’-shaped blade. This means that the blade isn’t pointed giving the edge more support from the spine of the blade. This shape is perfect when you need to open boxes. The serrations are also great when you need to cut through high-fibre materials such as rope. The length of the blade is approximately 6 cm. This knife is approximately 2.5 mm thick on its spine.
The Gerber MP600 comes with a nylon sheath with belt loop. You can attach the sheath horizontally to be able to have quick and easy access to your multi-tool. The seal is made from Velcro and can therefore easily be opened.
