All stacked neatly in a row before me. An assortment of 12 flathead and Phillips bits, not counting the two in use. The center-axis driver is what initially attracted me to the Gerber multi-tool, weary of searching for the family screwdriver set.

Though a bit on the heavy side at 9.5 oz., this tool is well-built and sturdy — nothing on it requires babying. Besides the 3.2″ center-axis driver that aligns like a real screwdriver, the rigid set of needle-nose pliers with rotatable carbide wire cutters and strippers impressed me. An assortment of 14 tools does not overwhelm, and each has a locking mechanism for both safety and efficient use.
