    Gerber announced a new multitool that many sport shooters, hunters and outdoorsmen might like. It is called the Center-Drive Multitool.

    One of the main features of this tool is that it features a driver that uses standard bits and is aligned along the center line of the tool.

    Other features of this tool are:

    • a full size, outboard knife that is said to be 30% longer than the Leatherman OHT. There is a thumb support on the multitool to give you better cutting power with the knife. This blade has a plain edge.
    • spring loaded pliers. This is a feature that I really like. I’ve had multiple multitools and have always found that non-spring loaded pliers can be a bit of a pain to work with.
    • thumb opening for main tools. The driver, knife and pliers are all deployed with a quick flick of the thumb, making them as easy to access as a common knife.

    In addition to the knife, driver and pliers, the Center-Drive also has the following tools built in:

    • serrated blade
    • awl
    • wire strippers (part of the pliers)
    • pry bar
    • file
    • bottle opener
    • ruler

    The driver also comes with a flathead bit and a Phillips bit. Gerber sells a bit set to supplement the tool if you want one. The tool will be available for purchase on November 1. Gerber states the MSRP will be $89.
