NEWS – As a kid, I always thought that Swiss Army knives were the coolest multi-tools. I guess I liked the bright red plastic. But once I grew up and actually got one of my own, I wasn’t super impressed and moved on to Leatherman tools and other EDC pocket tools. The newest multi-tool to catch my eye is the Gerber Armbar. It has an odd name, but I like the pocket knife form factor.
I also really like the bit driver that folds out from the handle into a straight line instead of an awkward offset like most Leatherman tools.
The Armbar multi-tool features a 2.5 inch blade, an awl, pry bar, bottle opener, hammer, scissors and a 2.5 in. extension driver with double-sided bit.
