The Gerber Suspension was my first multi-tool, or at least my first “real” one. Even after I bought my first Leatherman, and then my second, I kept the Gerber at my lab, and I used it often.
Now, I still keep it around, in a tool box at home, and it still comes in handy every so often, thanks to its spring-action pliers.
It’s not perfect. But, it is useful.
In addition to the spring-action pliers and cutters, the Gerber Suspension features 11 tools:
- Straight blade
- Serrated blade
- Phillips screwdriver
- Medium and large slotted screwdrivers
- Wire cutter/stripper
- Bottle opener
- Can opener
- Lanyard ring
Right now, the Gerber Suspension multi-tool is on sale, as part of Amazon’s Black Friday 2018 deals week. 12 years ago, I paid $25. It’s currently $20.
If you have ever wanted a pliers-based multi-tool, but didn’t want to invest a lot of money on something you might end up not using much, this is the one to get, at least in my opinion. That’s exactly what I did, and it worked out well for me. No regrets.
