The Gerber (30-000334) Strata Multi Plier comes with a nylon sheath and packs 13 components into its compact body, so you can trust it to deliver job-specific performance--whether you're up against mundane tasks or something completely unexpected. With its spring-loaded pliers and butterfly-opening design, each component is always accessible using just one hand. And Gerber's proprietary SAF.T.PLUS locking system makes sure that each component stays open during use and closed the rest of the time.
Butterfly Opening with Spring-Loaded Pliers
At the center of Gerber Strata Multi Plier's efficient butterfly design is a sturdy pair of pliers that allow you to get a secure hold on a wide variety of surfaces, so you can tighten stubborn bolts, move hot camp pans, and pull tough knots loose. Also featured is a spring-action mechanism that allows you to deploy the pliers quickly and use them effectively.
The Strata's unique butterfly design also makes each of its remaining tools accessible from the outside, which allows for quick, one-handed access to any tool - so there's no need to open the pliers to get at a bottle opener or the blade.
Sturdy, Half-Serrated Knife Blade
The tool's dependable blade is big enough to handle the tasks taken on by any dedicated pocketknife, and it features a half-serrated edge for making quick cuts through rope and other fibrous materials. Offering the best of both worlds without the weight of two blades, the half of the blade that has a fine edge allows for accurate detail work and easy sharpening.
13 Easy-to-Access Tools and Safety Locking System
Whether you're backpacking or doing other work, using the wrong tool to try and complete a job can be frustrating, time consuming, and even dangerous--which is where the Strata's true multi-tool design comes in. With 13 total components designed to deliver application-specific performance across a broad range of job types, it helps ensure that you never cut yourself or break a knife tip while attempting to tighten a screw with your blade.
Beyond its tough, sharp blade and spring-loaded pliers, the Strata offers a set of carbide pinch cutters , a saw, a pair of scissors, a Phillips driver, a large flat driver, a can and bottle opener, a small-tipped file, a small flat driver, and a special tool designed for opening retail packages effectively. And for added safety and improved handling, Gerber's unique SAF.T.PLUS locking system keeps each component open during use--so you don't ever have to worry about a blade folding on your hand--and keeps each component securely closed when the tool is in your bag or pocket.
Compact Design and Comfortable Grip
Despite being a completely utilitarian accessory, the Strata still shows off unique, contemporary good looks. Its stainless steel body and components feature a sleek brushed finish. In addition, the Strata measures a length of 6 inches when open and 4 inches when closed, and its ergonomic design features comfortable, contoured grip areas for accurate handling.
It weighs in at just 7.4 ounces to keep light packers happy, and it comes with a durable nylon sheath.
