Man's ready for when his toaster turns out to be a Deception. Gerber Dime is a great little tool though, saved me a bunch of times.

Gerber junk
I purchased the Gerber Dime about eight months ago from my local Bass Pro. I have had several Leatherman and Gerber multi-tools that were good quality, but the Gerber Dime should be called the Gerber garbage. The finish is very poor and it started peeling almost immediately. The scissors worked poor...

Great Handy Everyday Tool
I bought the Dime to upgrade from a multitool keychain knife. I need and use scissors for crafts and various needs. I wanted the pliers, finding the Dime very secure as the tool clicks into place; the grip on camping ropes, paracord, package zip-ties and small hardware pieces is very adept. The smal...

Overwhelming Favorite
I've owned quite a few 'pocket multi-tools' over the years (thank you TSA:)) and this has very quickly become my overwhelming favorite.
The Gerber Dime is truly 'pocket-sized.' this is huge for me as I work a white-collar position and wear slacks daily. Although smaller, it does not relinquish usef...

Handy Keyring Tool
I was a bit wary of buying this mini multi-tool, as I already have a few Leathermans and high expectations. The little Dime is a great set of tools that fits on a keyring for every day use and are nearly always at hand. It’s well made, the jaws on the pliers align perfectly and all up I’m very happy...

Latest carries - NYC - stay strapped always
Doesn’t NYC have strict rules on knives as well? IIRC the blade needs to be under 3” and can’t have certain opening mechanisms, and even then a cop can just take it if they really want to. Last time I went to the city I chose to leave my usual knife at home to be on the safe side. I did take a Gerber Dime with me, but that’s nowhere near the same.

Don't waste your money! - Much worse than I expected
I'm surprised this tool gets so many favorable reviews. The quality and fit and finish feels like something you'd find on a no-name tool at a gas station or auto parts store. The stamped metal for the tools is poorly finished and has sharp edges where they shouldn't be. The action of the pivots is s...

Handy gadget to keep in a pocket
I’ve carried a Gerber Dime multitool for 15 years or so— I’m on my third or fourth, and have given them to friends as well. I get the most use out of the mini-box cutter and the bottle opener (which probably says something about my life— I open packages and bottles more than I use pliers or screwdri...

Great tool for your buck
After long consideration and struggle to pick this gerber dime or a leather man squirt. I opted for the gerber and let me say it was a great decision. The bottle opener is already open so you only pick it up and open the bottle. The tool that I use the most is the scissors it’s sharp ! The package o...

Lots of tools!
The tools are great, but a little stiff to open and close.
