About this deal

Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. The original Dime has its problems, the handles rub and deform each other (mildly) when opening, getting the tools out can be nailbreaking and the file is uselessly short but overall it's a good little tool when what you want is a little set of pliers. Joel Mason did six years in the Iowa Army National Guard as an infantryman, with one tour in Afghanistan. Capable of handling many small jobs, the Dime — which is named as such as “the most valuable change you’ll find in your pocket,” according to the company — is a direct competitor with other micro multitools such as the Leatherman Micra, all of which go head-to-head against utility pocket knives like the prototypical Swiss Army Knife made by Victorinox and Swiss Gear.

This shows in what is left of the anodized finish, applied over the stainless steel used in its construction. I have owned and used this tool for over six years, and it still continues to impress, both with its durability and the high level of value I’ve gotten from it. There are also a pair of wire cutters built directly into the pliers, as found on most pliers nowadays.

However, the pliers on the Gerber Dime are a main feature and are perfectly in line with the central axis of the tool; also, the handles are large enough to give you very good purchase while gripping small items.

A double-sided file replaces its knife, and a zipper pull hook takes the place of the package opener tool. From boots that'll take you places to backpacks that keep up with your pace, there’s something for every EDCer in this week’s roundup. But if you look closely at the accompanying wire cutters, you’ll notice that the Dime’s aren’t very sharp. With care and due regard to the fragility of these smaller Gerber tools, they can work pretty well in most softer and undemanding applications. The Dime mini multi-tool easily collapses down for fast transport, with tools folding into the handles.

They probably did the initial production under close supervision, then moved it to Good Ol' China, with little to no supervision. Mikey has been at the cusp of gaming, technology, and the internet since the ‘90s and continues to lend his experience, expertise, and authority to all his pursuits. The package opener on the Dime would be mostly superfluous when camping and the file is too small and ineffectual to handle fingernails, the list goes on. Bladeless is great in the neo communist Britain, becaue you can carry a multitool without fearing you will get a fairly hefty fine for carrying it. The most ingenious of which is the evolutionary zipper hook, which attaches to and make opening a broken luggage zipper super easy.

It looks fantastic and the finishing on the tool is a real step up, with smooth edges and little rough machining.Perhaps the most useful tool on the Dime: a package opener with a small angled blade that allows cutting of tape and packaging materials without damaging the contents. So when you can't get past security without leaving your trusty multitool at home because of its blade, what can you do? This is a bladeless keychain multi-tool, making it safe for use in facilities with a no-knife standard, as well as for the airport security line. The point of the pliers meet up with a slight separation closer to the wide section intended for grabbing nuts, bolts, and other wide objects.

Nicely engraved and he now says he doesn't know what he did without it, never shuts up about it actually and takes it everywhere with him and uses ithe for everything and anything . I'm going to try loosening up the pivot screws, (they seem to be metric hex) and see if that helps at all.While these may seem like trivial differences, they cause the Gerber to carry much less pleasantly than its counterpart. The pliers on the Dime also have an improved tension spring that extends into the body of the tool within small channels in the plier head. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places.
