Gerber Suspension Multi-tool

, October 26, 2014

Ever since Joseph Gerber launched his Gerber ‘Legendary Blades’ in 1939, the brand has taken off in the outdoor tools market. Specializing in knifes and tools, Gerber has pioneered the way in compact products to meet the demands  of several outdoors activities, helping the brand develop a strong relationship with outdoor enthusiasts across the market.

I have tested the Suspension on many expeditions in mixed environments and it has never failed me. It has a pair of tough, spring-loaded pliers and all the essential components needed for the outdoors, such as a knife, serrated knife, saw, scissors, screwdriver and various can and bottle openers. I previously owned Swiss Army Knives but believe this multi-tool to be superior; rugged and versatile, the Suspension’s compact size and epic utility make it the first piece of gear I pack on any trip.
