Customer Reviews

A little heavy, a lot sharp and sturdy. Very definitely value for money.I've been carrying a Leatherman Micra since...1996 or 1997, and have been a die-hard fan. Victorinox wasn't even in the running. I lose them periodically and have to replace them, and this time around, I thought I'd experiment with Gerber.It's the same length as the Leatherman Micra, a titch wider and thicker. It's nearly twice as heavy. It's also less than half the cost.The feature I use most on a mini-tool is the scissors. By far the most important thing for me is that the scissors be sharp and sturdy - no Victorinox-style thin fold-out things. The Leatherman Micra scissors meet my needs. The Gerber Splice scissors are even better.Other tools I use regularly are the screw-drivers and the file, and sometimes tweezers and the ruler markings. I use the knife occasionally, but not often, and the bottle-opener never. Gerber's screwdrivers are just as good as the Micra's. I find the file to be a little less good, but it's not a dealbreaker. I'm mildly sorry not to have tweezers or measurement markings, but am excited to try the serrated blade/mini saw. I haven't tried the knife yet, but based on how sharp the scissors are, I'm pretty confident the knife blade will be fine.It's a tiny bit stiff, but nothing that a dab of WD40 won't take care of - and that might just be the one I got, not a universal trait.It's good enough - a very close competitor to the Micra - to make $13.50 instead of $29.95 an extraordinary price.On the whole, I'm pleased. The extra weight does kind of bother me, and I'd be more likely to switch my allegiance to Gerber forever if they found a way to take an ounce off it, but it's not so heavy as to be a real problem. I can't tell yet whether, when I inevitably lose this one, I'll buy another Gerber or go back to Leatherman, but there's a good chance I'll go with Gerber again.4Philips screwdriver snapped pretty easily. Pinches easily. Other tools surprisingly good.I bought one of these because I needed a good pair of portable, small, folding scissors for, in particular, cutting wristbands at my hospital. This seemed the closest thing to what I wanted since it was beefier than thread scissors but not huge.The scissors did not disappoint. They're meaty little buggers, and I've seen much bigger scissors fail on six layers of plastic and paper that comprises a patient wristband.The knives are both excellent too. Good size for the small tool, acceptably sharp (not super sharp, but plenty good enough)The file/philips screwdriver is very light duty. It doesn't really flex, but I tried loosening a #2 screw that I would not consider stuck, and it snapped the tip off. So be careful. The file works, but is so pointlessly short that it's irrelevant.The bottle opener works great.Overall, though? It's kinda bulky. I also don't like that it has no pocket clip, so it's annoying to fish around my pockets for it, and it's definitely inappropriately large for a keychain.I probably wouldn't buy it again. I'm replacing it with the roxon scissors/knife combo, since those are the only two tools I really need at the hospital, and that's all that's really good about this.3Gerber Slice, a mixed bag of a multi tool with good and bad points.I have carried a Leatherman Style for several years, but the scissors and blade have lost their edge and I have always been a little irritated at how much length the clip adds to the end, so since I wanted to try something different, I ordered a Gerber Splice. It is almost exactly the length of the Style, minus the clip. So, that worked out. It is about 1 1/2 times as thick, understandable since it has more tools. It feels very sturdy, but it is quite stiff to open. In fact, some of the tools are all but impossible to open, the tools are short and stubby and the nail nicks are in the center of the length of the tools, minimizing leverage. The nail file has no nail nick and the only way I can open it is by prying out on the Phillips screwdriver on the end. Speaking of the nail file, it is a grand total of one inch long, of which perhaps 3/4 of an inch is a file. Single cut on one side, double cut on the other. At least they look like file cuts, sadly, they don't cut, not even a finger nail. First, the surface is so short that the only way to use it is to kind of roll your nail on it, because you certainly cannot get a stroke going, the file portion is narrower than my thumbnail. Second, there is no feeling of sharpness to the file cuts, it is like they are just lines on the blade, not sharp like the teeth of a file. The good news is that the two knife blades are sturdy and sharp, one a classic spear point and the other a serrated sheepsfoot. Either is sturdier and sharper than the blade on my Style when I got it.If you want a compact but chunky pocket tool with small but decent knife blades, adequate screw drivers and sturdy scissors, this may suit you.If you want a pocket tool to trim and or file broken fingernails, avoid it, it is not suited to that purpose at all, the file literally will not cut.I may carry it for a while, but I honestly expect to end up buying another Leatherman Style, or attempting to sharpen the scissors on my old one.3Gerber Splice, good for price!I got this tool because I wanted something compact in a multi tool platform. I also enjoy Swiss Army Knife style tools but I am partial to this platform.Size: As you can see in my attached photos it is very compact. Not too heavy but certainly more weight to it than a Swiss comparison keychain tool. My hands are somewhere between average and large and it is comfortable to me for small tasks. (Cutting paper or string, loosening or tightening a screw, use of the file)Fit and Finish: Mine is worn now so it will show signs of wear from everyday carry but no malfunctions thus far. The lockup is pretty good and the tools don't flop about. A little difficult to get the bottle opener out since it is one piece with the large flat driver. Others not too difficult.Function: It suits my needs as a great assistant in a pinch but don't try to substitute a toolbox with it. The blades arrived sharp and the drivers work well for what they are. I've not attempted use of the bottle opener at this time. The scissors are without question the most impressive accessory on this little guy though. Robust and sharp I am confident they have many years use ahead of them.In closing I would purchase again and would recommend for anyone seeking a similar product. I subtracted one star because of the bottle opener/driver design.4Comparison with Leatherman Style CSThis is a pretty handy little tool, very comparable to the Leatherman Style CS. Both are tools that are based around scissors (not pliers, some buyers were confused, since Amazon mislabeled this; if you want keychain pliers, I would recommend the Gerber Dime or the Leatherman PS). Both this Gerber Splice and the Leatherman CS are very nice scissors; in my opinion both are significantly better than the scissors that usually come as part of a larger pocketknife like a Victorinox swiss army knife or the larger Leathermans or Gerber multitools. (I carry around a larger multitool too, but if I want scissors, I turn to this.)Here is a more detailed comparison of this product with the Leatherman CS:- The scissors in the Gerber splice are significantly more heavy-duty than the Leatherman CS. I tried cutting some Velcro straps with both, and the Gerber splice left a nice clean edge, whereas the Leatherman CS required multiple cuts and did not cut cleanly. Both tools fine for cutting paper or threads, but for something heavier, the Gerber splice is better.- The Leatherman CS starts out easy to open, while the Gerber Slice starts out stiff and sometimes hard to open, as other reviewers have complained. But it gets easier to open as you use it.- The Leatherman CS has a pair of tweezers; this does not. (This product's predecessor, the Gerber Shortcut, had tweezers; I don't know why they removed them.)- The Leatherman has a handy clip on it that makes it easy to attach to something. This product does not; it has a little ring that you could use to attach to your keyring, but it's certainly not as easy to attach or detach.- This product has a serrated knife in addition to a straight knife; the Leatherman has only an unserrated knife. I'm not sure whether that's an important advantage; I haven't yet wanted to use the serrated knife, though I suppose I might. Generally when I would want a serrated knife (for cutting cardboard or something like that), I usually reach for a bigger multitool. I suppose the serrated knife might be handy for the nasty blister packages, but for that I think a better tool is the package opener on the Gerber Dime (which I strongly recommend).- The nail file on the Leatherman is vastly better. The nail file on this works, but I much prefer the Leatherman--it's longer, and has a better roughness for filing nails. Gerber used to have a really good nail file (on the Gerber Shortcut, the predecessor to this multitool); I don't know why they abandoned it.- Both the Leatherman and this tool have a "cross driver" (i.e., a Philips screwdriver), but neither is great. The Leatherman one is completely flat (it only engages two of the four slots of the screw). This one is *almost* flat; it has tiny projections for the other two slots. I'm not sure that really helps at all. So I would say that both have usable Philips screwdrivers, but neither is great. You can certainly use them in a pinch, or if you're too lazy to go get another screwdriver, but in general I would probably prefer a real Philips driver like some other multitools have (Victorinox pocketknives and multitools usually have excellent Philips screwdrivers).- This product has two regular screwdrivers, one small (almost eyeglass size) and the other fairly large. The Leatherman does not have any regular screwdrivers.- This has a bottle opener which looks like it's probably pretty good, but I haven't had to open any bottles yet. The Leatherman CS also has a bottle opener as part of its clip. I cannot say which works better, but I can say that the Gerber splice bottle opener is wider (it's the whole width of the multitool, basically).- This product is wider and heavier than the Leatherman.The Leatherman Micra also has a pair of scissors in a similar size package. It's more similar to the Leatherman CS, and in my opinion strictly inferior to the Leatherman CS--it has all the same problems, plus you have to open the scissors first to get at any of the other tools. The Leatherman CS or the Gerber Splice is much better in that you can get to any tool without opening the scissors.So, in summary: this is an excellent pair of scissors, the best I have seen on any multitool. If you also want a good nail file or a pair of tweezers, you probably want the Leatherman CS; if you want the best scissors, or a nice but short serrated knife in addition to an unserrated knife, this would be the right tool. I vacillate between carrying this and the Leatherman CS.4I'll keep it I've had this for about 3 weeks and they are still a bit hard to open the tools without using your nails.However with all the tools in this product it's hard to say no. It's very handy. The blades are very sharp... a must-have for someone who wants to carry around something similar to an army knife. I attach these to my keys, so it's easy for me to open boxes etc. on-the-go. I opened an impossible box of earphones theft-proof plastic-casing (ugh) and it took me a good minute or two with the small scissors.Some experiences: I've somewhat clipped my skin while using the scissors and my thumb was in between the handles, I didn't notice to take my thumb out before it was clipped. Another drawback is that the scissors are a little bit fumbly -- they're a bit small and it's hard to grip the handles sometimes, but it's something in case you can't find your regular pair of scissors. 4Uptight But Out Of SightThe undisputed star of this folding troupe of tools is a stout yet effortless scissors with a strong spring action that works as well as or better than the scissors on any other pocket multitool I have used.The scissors has at least a couple of able co-stars, which are a surprisingly sharp knife blade and a serrated saw blade. I've used some dollar-store multitools whose implements were laughingly dull, and which brought the tool down to the level of a throwaway novelty item. The blades on this Gerber, however, are sharp enough to be genuinely useful. This means that they are also sharp enough to cut your fingers badly. This is quite possible should your fingers slip while trying to open the tight components of this tool.The sharp blades, however, are two of the largest and easiest to open implements. Some of the smaller tools such as the screwdrivers are quite tight and will likely chip your fingernails sometimes as you try to open them. I would suggest using the needle-nosed pliers of another multitool to convince some of these little nail rippers to stand up and cheer. All the tools will begin to loosen a bit over time. I recommend carefully opening each instrument a few times when the tool is new, to establish a muscle memory of the force and grip required. This will minimize the risk of future accidents. Both a good scissors and good pliers are among the most useful items to be found on a multitool, but both are seldom found on the same model, and when they are, they are seldom of the same high quality. That is why it is wise to buy one multitool with good scissors and one with good pliers. These tools are compact, lightweight, and affordable, so having two at the ready would not be extravagant. In the case of the sharp but uptight little Gerber, I suspect that the tools may be further loosened by adjusting the torx screws that hold the case together.I intend to try that as soon as I can obtain some drivers. In summation, any tool that is edged sharply enough to be useful can be potentially dangerous. If operated carelessly, this one can inflict lacerations and pinch wounds. I wouldn't feel entirely comfortable putting it in the hands of the average Cub Scout, but it can work out well for a careful, older person with steady hands.4Solid. Well Constructed.I like the scissors instead of pliers. Little pliers on something this small is of little use. But these scissors are much better than those little Swiss Army scissors.For something this small, you're not building your construction career with this tool. However, as with every tool, you can find a function. For me, this is perfect in the mail room. Just right for opening packages and letters. The little screwdrivers have come in handy more than once for very small jobs. Imagine being able to lift the faceplate off an alarm system and cutting the wires. Or perhaps diffusing and disposing of explosive ordinance. This is just the right size for cutting the string on a sting bikini.While this does have a knife blade, and you will not be able to carry this onto a flight, you should have no problem riding the bus with it.Read the warning. Limited Lifetime Warranty.5I liked them but I decided about a year ago to ...I've had two Leatherman Micra's over the years. I liked them but I decided about a year ago to try the Gerber Splice. I'm going back to Micra's.Pros:Decent scissorsExcellent serrated blade. I use it very frequently as a box cutter or rope cutter.Cons:-Bites like a mousetrap when you close it. I pinched a blood blister on my first handling of the tool.-Sharp external edges around the handle. I filed them down to avoid wearing through my pocket.-The straight-edge blade doesn't have a hard stop so it flexes backwards easily.-The straight screwdriver is pretty well worthless. It's combined with a parallel bottle opener that gets in the way.-The phillips screwdriver/file and the miniature screwdriver can only be used with the tool closed so you have a very short, fat tool that can't get into anyplace tight, especially the miniature screwdriver when used on glasses frames.Most of the above problems are not present on the Micra. If I could get a Micra with Splice's serrated blade, I'd really have something. As for the Splice, it will go into the dresser drawer when my next Micra arrives.2Great EDC tool for people that don't ever use pliers.This has most of the tools an urban explorer would need. If you don't typically use tools like pliers in your job or hobby, this will most likely be a better suited tool for you than any of the other options that include pliers instead of the Splice's scissors. I use this in an Altoids tin everyday carry box. It fits perfectly to allow space for the tiny little slide tins that seem to be in all of these kits. Best part though is that you don't need to open the splice to get access to any tool but the scissors. The bottle opener takes a little effort (And sometimes broken nails) to open the first few times on mine. Maybe I'm just unlucky though. Other than that one thing, I love this tool.5I think of these things as a nice set of folding scissorsI think of these things as a nice set of folding scissors. The blades are nice and the opener works (barely) but really the scissors are great. It's a little bit bigger than my Leatherman Squirt P4. It seems like they could have made it a little more compact. The bottle opener is clever in that it's the full width of the body of the tool, but it doesn't make it any more effective than the little thin things you normally see (you have to get it right under the flute of the cap for it to work). There are 2 knife blades (one serrated and one not), which is totally redundant for me. The scissors are rigid and meet precisely at the tip so you can snip something heavy at the very end (stubborn zip ties) that you can barely reach and it does a good job at cutting still. Since there are no serrations on the scissor blades and they seem to be coated, it requires a lot of pressure to cut heavier material. They are heavy-duty enough to get through thick stuff it just takes a little work to keep them in the cut.5
