Oregon-based Gerber Knives just added two new butterfly open multi-tools to its expansive collection: the Suspension-NXT and Truss. Both are built on a spring-loaded needlenose plier frame and come with a bevy of spring-locking tools in the handles.
Looking to add the most utilitarian multi-tool to your EDC? This might be it. There are several other options to choose from, such as the Screwpop or the Titanium Pocket Bit from Big Idea Design. The SAVIOR is a hair larger than the Pocket Bit, but it also packs in a bottle opener.
