Product Description

Size Name:NA

Product Description

We took the standard keychain multi-tool and made it better. In addition to stainless steel pliers, wire cutters, a fine edge blade, spring-loaded scissors, flathead screwdriver, crosshead driver, tweezers and file, the Dime includes a unique blade designed to safely cut and score plastic packaging and a bottle opener that is exposed even when the tool is closed. Compact and lightweight, the Dime is the most valuable change you'll find in your pocket.

Box Contains

1 x multitool

Get ready to break all your nails trying to open the tools on it just to realize later that the nailfile is completely useless its like grinding my nails on polished steel, no effect.
Pros:
-nice design of both the tool and the blade
-very good fiskars scissors, but need oiling too
-strong bottle opener
Cons:
-Made in China, so half the price would be adequate
-Tweezers were missing! just an empty slot for them instead
-useless nailfile, its just a poorly stamped polished steel you can grind your nails on it all day and nothing happens
-All tools are very hard to open and it needs oiling straight from box and blade needed sharpening, i suggest using Victorinox multitool oil
-paint already chipped off on some places also aluminum handles bit chipped on the inside
-wire cutters mostly only bend the wire instead of cutting clean through due to too much play in the pliers joint

Doesn't seem to be used or refurbished item its just poor quality, Gerber is getting worse day by day
Waste of time and money better spend a little bit more and get a usa made leatherman squirt or swiss made victorinox tinker deluxe or mechanic
Returned it for a replacement, the 2nd one was the same hard to open tools, same substandard quality, but at least it had tweezers this time
NOT fit for purpose, NOT recommended at all, only gave 2/5 stars for the nice design and tool choice

Well I have had many Gerber products over the years and even after lots of abusive use, none have failed - I still have all of them and love them. I would rely on them any day. I was looking for a new small multi-tool and after hearing good things about the Gerber Dime i thought I would buy it. It arrived quickly and upon first inspection it looked to be good enough to do the job. The tools were a bit stiff to get in and out but once out they worked well - even the blade (often weak link in multi-tools) worked fine and had a good shape. The problem is today (two days after getting it) I tried the tool again and one of the hex bolts which holds the frame together sheared and broke. Upon inspecting the bolt, it looks like it was over torqued at assembly. This is shocking and surprising from a Gerber product and I am severely disappointed. I have contacted the vendor and returned the defective item in November 2012 per Amazon's policies but so far I have not heard any response despite repeated attempts to contact the seller. Very disappointing customer service.

Majority (see below) of tools seem pretty good. Knife is solid and agreeably sharp, as is the package opener. Scissors do their job, though perhaps a little stiff to squeeze. The screwdrivers appear solid enough and seem to do their job too.
I thought the bottle opener being an external one would annoy me, but it grew on my rather quickly. It's solid, opens bottles and doubles as an extra secure way of attaching to keyrings or the likes.
Pliers are another good point here. Strong and sturdy with wire cutters built in. They also serve as excellent tweezers. Quite possibly better than the tweezers that you also get with this.

What is irking me right now however is just how hard it is to get the tools out. I've never been good at getting tools out with my nails and generally went to my teeth. That's not happening here. I pretty much need another tool (or keys in this case) just to pull the blighters out. Perhaps they will loosen over time.

Also, the file is kind of pathetic. less said about that, the better.

Brief summary-

Good:
- Majority of tools (great knife/package opener/bottle opener/pliers)
- Looks attractive
- Great size
- Feels solid

Bad:
- Stiffness
- File

Received mine very quickly but the pliers appear used, there are cracks on the tip of the inside nib and the teeth as it were are worn. Either that or the mould used to cast the pliers are bad.
Quality control has really failed here. Sending mine back. Construction wise, it is solid and the knife is sharp enough but not razor sharp. The scissors are stiff to use and you don't get to cut much with it (the amount you can cut with one stroke is short) compared to say a Swiss army HUNTSMAN which has a much better scissors.

...and it didn't pay off. Given that some people are happy with their Dimes, Gerber's quality control must be purely random, because the one I got was pure garbage.

- All tools were nail-chippingly stiff, and did not improve appreciably with repeated opening/closing.
- The "file", as another reviewer said, would struggle to smooth butter.
- The 2D-crosshead screwdriver was slightly bent, and its tip was very poorly finished. No chance using it for glasses screws, as one can with the 2D-crosshead on a Leatherman Squirt.
- Part of the body of the tool was bent, forcing one of the aluminium handle-scales away at one end, leaving gap big enough to pass a SIM-card through.
- The lubricant on the tool was copious and gritty, and looked and smelled like some strange mixture of petroleum jelly and sand.
- The tweezers were poorly finished and the tips did not meet properly.
- The scissors DO cut reasonably well, but do not close fully without pushing the tip of one's thumb down at a more upright angle, as the body of the tool gets in the way. This is, naturally, less comfortable.

Overall, the quality of the tool was shockingly poor for the price (about £20), especially when a Leatherman Squirt PS4, with excellent quality-control and far, FAR better-finished parts, can be had for only a tenner more. I might have bought this for £5, but no more. It's going straight back for a refund and I'll buy another Leatherman Squirt instead.

The one good thing was the package opener, which worked 100% as expected (once I'd lost the tips of both thumbnails trying to get it out).
