Gerber’s hawk-like sleek EDC multi-tool is for everyone who want more done with minimum baggage!





While most EDC multi-tools pack more than six functions into a form factor that’s a bit thicker than you’d ideally want, Gerber wants to take the bold step of giving you the bare minimum. In practical use, most of those functions never even see the light of day – the ones used most are the knife, screwdriver, and the occasional toss of the beer bottle crown. Their Armbar Slim Drive EDC multi-tool (upgraded version of Armbar Drive) filters down the usual EDC functions to the least possible ones you’ll actually use most of the time.

The Gerber Armbar Slim Drive has just got the screwdriver, bottle opener, and a sharp blade – giving it a very slim profile – no more than a normal-sized writing instrument. This gives you the practical freedom to carry it with you at all times (literally all times in real-world usage) as opposed to other thick and heavy EDCs that you at most consider carrying in your backpack – no way in your pocket. The advantage here is the specialized function which will help you get through anything required. The multi-tool is designed in a way to give you substantial gripping power while cutting with the blade, and driving or prying the screwdriver tool. On top of that, the frame lock holds the tool steadfast when cutting through tough objects or the odd self-defense situation while walking down the alley on a dark night. The form factor of the overall tool reinforces the sleekness of the design, with a hawk-like form when folded gives it added strength and character.

In the fully opened position of the knife, it measures 6.75 inches in total – almost as good enough as a real knife with a superior grip. The tool comes with a fold-out two-inch bit driver to take care of any screwing tasks that come up. The driver has its own dual-sided bit – one a Philips bit and the other a flathead bit – for times when you don’t have your own driving bits. And yes, pardon me if I just forgot to mention the exposed bottle opener function at the rear end.

This nifty multitool EDC fits 18 different tools into its singular portable design





Sure, the Fishface multitool doesn’t have the most awe-inspiring cool-sounding name, but it makes up for that with absolute unmatched functionality. The entire device is no bigger than your thumb, but comes with not 5, not 10, but 18 different tools integrated into it. It’ll open practically anything from boxes to boxes, and from hex-nuts to Phillips-head screws. It’s even got its own wire-cutter, pry-tool, and gritty sanding surface for sanding down the screws you can’t open… although that’s always the last measure.

The name Fishface comes from its abstract fish-skeleton design, complete with an eye hole, an open mouth, and even fins and a tail! These details, however, are simply tools that sit within the Fishface’s utilitarian-yet-nature-inspired form. The device comes made from black titanium-coated stainless steel, giving it the strength it needs to pull off the multiple tasks you give it. Among its many tools are Phillips and flat screwdrivers, wrenches, hex drives as well as a bicycle spanner, pry bar, file, nail cleaner, bottle opener, box opener, and a rope cutter. All said and done, the entire multitool weighs a mere 20 grams (0.04 lbs) and comes with its own carabiner clip too, making it perfect to strap to your backpack or even around your keychain… and yes, it’s TSA-approved for flying too!

The Gerber Armbar Drive: Everyday Carry for modern environments

I for one can’t wait for normalcy to return so I can step out and meet friends. Working as a writer for a blog means already being used to working from home, and while I’m sufficiently prepared professionally, the absence of a social life is taking a toll on me. It almost feels like the Gerber Armbar Drive is speaking to be by being entirely relevant in times like these. Since I’m stuck indoors, most of my EDC need pertain to indoor requirements, which the Armbar Drive is more than capable of handling.

A tiny, versatile multitool, the Gerber Armbar Drive packs 7 tools into its small, slick frame. The Armbar Drive’s frame integrates a prybar and bottle opener into its design, while the fold-out tools include a full-size plain-edge knife, an awl for making or enlarging holes, a scissor for cutting, and a 2.5” long screwdriver with a 2-sided bit that you can flip and use based on your need. Pretty useful for a multitool that ultimately folds down to the size of your index finger. The Armbar Drive even has a sister variant, the Armbar Cork, which features a corkscrew with lever arm along with a can/package opener… but given that I haven’t seen a bottle of alcohol in over a month now, I’ll leave that be.

How to give your hike a high-tech upgrade

At its heart, hiking is about getting away from technology. Stuffing everything you need to survive for a few days into a bag and disappearing into the woods is as much about breaking free of the daily Twitter grind as it is about pushing yourself ph...

The Union is hands-down the most versatile pocket-toolkit I’ve seen

If your question is ‘how many tools in a multitool is too many tools?’, let me tell you, that answer changes practically every month. Each time I see a new multitool EDC, I’m convinced that there’s no such thing as too many tools as long as the device remains portable. However, I’m now convinced that we’ve reached what I call “peak multitool”, and there’s no getting better or moving forward from here. The Union by Toler Tools is a pocket-sized product that puts tools into your pocket that you didn’t previously think were possible. It has an adjustable wrench, a screwdriver with multiple heads, a pair of pliers with a built-in wirecutter, a miniature handsaw that cuts through metal, and a pocket knife… in a size that fits basically most of your toolshed right into your pocket.

Designed with unprecedented range and ability, the Union is a traveling toolshed. The patent-pending Omnilock wrench allows you to get into tough places and lets you handle a range of sizes easily and quickly. Using self-adjusting and ratcheting mechanisms, the wrench securely tightens around nuts and bolts, giving you all the grip you need to tighten loose bolts anywhere. The Union sports a two-part design that allows you to detach the pliers unit from the wrench for further precision, holding onto parts with one hand while tightening them with the other. Also built into it is a screwdriver with four interchangeable heads. The driver itself is detachable and can be attached to either piece (the wrench or the plier) depending on your needs, and even docks sideways too, giving you a T-grip for screws that are exceptionally tough to loosen or tighten. Docked inside the Union’s body are also interchangeable heads, with one flathead, two Phillips heads, and an Allen head, giving you control over a wide variety of fairly popular screws.

When all’s said and done, the Union packs two blades too, as is fairly common with multitools. A handsaw blade, made from heat-treated D2 steel, comes with a serrated edge that can cleanly slice through wood or even metal, and a 3.125″ pocket-knife blade lets you cut and slice through regular items, opening boxes, cutting cords, etc.

This unusual combination of tools (especially with the remarkable self-adjusting wrench) compressed into a product smaller than your smartphone is pretty much what gives the Union its incredible competitive edge. on the more functional, get-hands-dirty side of the EDC spectrum, the Union isn’t just a regular multitool. It’s an all-out, portable, hardware solution!
