Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Multi-Tool (Sports)
I bought this as a multi-tool for camping and cycle touring. In particular I was keen to find a lightweight and effective pair of pliers for small jobs. This looked to be the thing. They look great and are quite lightweight. I took them halfway round the world as part of my backup tool kit. I looked after them carefully.
Finally I needed to use the pliers to hold and pull a piece of wire. They immediately broke. Wha?
On close inspection there is a design flaw whereby the force used from the pliers is transferred to a very small piece of metal which acts as a fulcrum and breaks very, very easily. This renders the pliers useless. I gave the multi-tool away. Checking the reviews it is a well documented fault.
Do not buy for the pliers. They break.
