Gerber's Armbar Drive packs 8 tools into one pocket-friendly package
Designed to balance versatility and excellent portability, Gerber's new Armbar Drive is claimed to offer the kind of utility you could expect of a full-sized multitool, while still easily sliding in and out of one's pocket.
The Armbar Drive measures 3.6 in long and 0.7 in wide (9.1 and 1.8 cm), taking up about the same amount of real estate in your pants pocket as a typical pocket knife. A 2.5-in (6.35-cm) fine edge blade swings outward from the handle and locks in place for slicing and dicing tasks, while a slew of other tools can be deployed depending on the job at hand.
There's a total of eight tools onboard, including an awl, a pry bar, a bottle opener, hammer, spring-loaded scissors, a striking surface to start a fire, along with a 2.5-in extension bit driver. A two-sided bit is also included.
Gerber is also offering a wine-oriented version of the multitool called the Armbar Cork, which features a corkscrew with lever arm along with a can/package opener.
Both tools weigh 3.1 oz (88 g) and are priced at US$40. You can check them out in the promo video below.
