Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Gerber Dime Multi- Tool. To me everyone should have a mini multi-tool on their key chain.
This is one of my absolute favorites due to how small and useful it is. There are so many times in our lives we could use a screw driver or a pair of pliers or even a good pair of tweezers. I spent a lot of time checking into small key chain sized multi tools and the Gerber Dime was the one I settled on.
With this little gadget on my key chain I have the following tools everywhere I go, all the time.
- Needle nose pliers
- Wire cutter
- Fine edge blade
- Retail package opener
- Flat Screw Driver
- Crosshead Screw Driver
- Bottle opener
For many years I carried a Leatherman Wave, in fact I often still do. Frankly I think it is the best full sized multi-tool out there. But it is a rather large item on your belt and just not practical for every day and all the time. To much EDC makes one look like a pathetic version of Batman you know.
So at times I would need pliers, a driver, etc, and just not have it with me. Well pretty much anywhere I go I have my keys. To drive home how small this item is when folded here is mine on my key chain below. As you can see it takes up less space than the key to my 4-Runner.
The Gerber Dime Multi- Tool is also a great deal at under 14 bucks with free shipping on Prime. It absolutely will not do everything a full sized tool does but it is small enough to always be there when you need it. To me that is the key with mini multi-tools, better a small set of pliers then none at all!
