Gerber MP 600 Pro Scout Multi-Tool
The only multi-tool you need
Gerber wasn't the first to make the Multi tool but they sure did perfect it!
I have only owned 3 of the Gerber's over the past 20 years. I use them almost daily. I still own the very first tool I was ever given. They have lasted that long. I have however, broken a few blades and pliers along the way but with Gerber's warranty, its not an issue. I cant tell you off the top of my head what the actual stated warranty is, but I was using the needle nose pliers to pry an elevator door open and broke one. Even after telling Gerber what I had done, they replaced the entire tool free of charge. I was only out the shipping to them. Same goes for knife blades and screw driver blades. I can honestly say that I have not broken a blade while using it for what it was intended for. Its always when I'm prying something or using it as a hammer. With that said, their warranty is top notch.
I carry one of these on duty with me 5 days a week. I can't tell you the amount of time I have used this on duty to help myself or someone else. Back in 2003, I pulled up to an accident with a vehicle starting to catch on fire. Seatbelt was jammed and would not free. I had left my pocket knife at home and remembered that I had my Gerber on my belt. I was able to cut it free and pull the women out. I know any sharp knife blade would do the same, but how many times to you carry a back up knife? Having a multi tool that also has a knife blade if needed, is very reassuring to me.
I have one in my truck, on my duty belt and in the kitchen junk drawer. Its sad, but even with tools everywhere, I always go back for my Gerber. Its just very convenient to have everything you need all in one. I think every cop, deputy EMS and firefighter should carry one of these. The uses are endless on what it can do.

Gerber Pro Scout 600
My family gave me one of these (Gerber Pro Scout 600) for a birthday about 12 or 14 years ago, and I find I use it almost daily, whether at work or at play... But any time I leave the house it's in it's pouch hanging on my belt.... Besides pockets and a wife, it's got to be about the handiest thing I have ever found..... I would definitely recommend it to anyone who actually physically works for a living, and anyone who enjoys spending time in the outdoors.

This is a very good tool. i like how the tools fold from inside giving you a flat grip when using the pliers. tools that fold from outside, such as my old leatherman are extremely uncomfortable to grip the pliers hard.

The one tool for everything!
I would say that the only problem I have is that things are a little difficult to use because its not broken in yet, however once it gets broken in this tool is going to be one of the best I've ever had!
