I read a claim in a knife magazine that the Leatherman was the most used tool during Desert Storm.

Yeah if you search on E-bay, you can find people selling military issued Gerber tools.... O0

Heck, Gerber makes a tool that has a specific crimper for explosive caps....plus they sell a tool that comes with all the atachments to find and disarm land mines..... :shock:

Sounds like they might have a lock on the military market.... O0

...I'm a maintenance guy and handyman and have used Gerber tools for many years now. Actualy since they first came out and didn't feature the locking devices they do now. I prefer them to the Leatherman tool since I find the slide open design much handier than the folding hinged handle styling of the Leatherman. The Gerber has a lifetime warranty and i've enjoyed sending two broken tools back over the years to recieve free of charge, the updated models. I use the tool EVERYDAY, MANY TIMES PER DAY,and can not imagine being without it!

I like Gerber.

I have used Gerber multi-pliers for over 15 years, dating back to my Army days as a Bradley Master Gunner.  I liked the Gerber better because the Leatherman at the time had narrower handles and the tools swung out from the outside of the handle.  When squeezing hard on the pliers, the edges of the handles cut into my palms.  I could get more force with the Gerber pliers.

I also own several Gerber knives and a Gerber folding saw (for when I use my tree stand).  My first Gerber was a Mark II over 25 years ago when I was a young Ranger.  Sadly, I messed it up on a parachute landing.

My son got me a muzzle loadiing multi-tool branded as Winchester, but I do not know who makes it.
