It’s not uncommon to find yourself a few cents short of a purchase and a 10 cent piece is all you need to get over the line. Such was the premise for Gerber’s latest multi-tool – the Dime: a compact and lightweight utility gadget that’s as essential to your pocket as the spare change you need for your morning coffee.
Like any good multi-tool, the Dime features a sturdy bottle-opener that remains exposed even when the tool is closed. Two drivers, a flat-head and Phillips-head , are there for any emergency DIY quick fixes that need your immediate attention. Personal hygiene on the go is also easy thanks to the file and tweezers, which can also come in handy should you find yourself dealing with an annoyingly painful splinter.
The pliers are spring loaded for easy operation and also feature wire cutters for precision cutting. Never one to let packaging or paper get the better of you, Gerber has fitted the Dime with a fine-edge blade, spring loaded scissors and a retail package opener to cover all your bases.
Available in a discreet matte black, or vibrant green, red and purple colour options and measuring just over 6cm when closed, the Gerber Dime is the most valuable change you’re likely to find.
