Diesel 14-in-1 Multi-Tool in Black is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clumsy For Anything But Pliers The Gerber Diesel is a fairly sturdy multitool, but deploying anything other than the pliers is a bothersome, clumsy process. If you primarily use multitools for their pliers, and often have another hand tied up doing something else, then this is your multitool. Otherwise, I'd go with something less pliers-centric. The first thing I noticed when I took the Diesel out of it's packaging was how sturdy it felt. The second thing I noticed was all the black grease/coating that got all over my hands. It's either purposefully packed in a rust-resistant film, or the black coating wears off too easily. Whichever the case, it took a few paper towels worth of wiping to get it to stop leaving my hands looking like they're covered in soot. I still wouldn't trust it around a pair of khakis though. The pliers are the main focus of the tool. I found them to be pretty usable, with the tool just about performing as well as a regular set of pliers. They deploy by squeezing the two buttons on each side of the tool, and sliding upwards. With a bit of practice and breaking in, I managed to get the one-handed opening action down for these with just a flick of my wrist. It feels a little bit hazardous, since you're flinging a heavy tool while just holding it between two fingertips. I wouldn't do it around anything breakable, like a window. Stowing the pliers is a little more difficult, and I usually end up pushing the end against a solid surface while sliding the pliers back in with one hand. They don't completely stow inside the tool, so there's a pointy end sticking out that will eventually wear a hole in your pocket if you don't use a sheath. All other tools unfold from inside the handles. Unfortunately, this requires extending the pliers, opening the handles, flipping out the desired tool, and then stowing the pliers. Stowing the tools is the reverse process, plus the extra task of sliding back the plastic locking mechanism. It's the most ungainly process I've ever seen for accessing tools in a multi-tool. Tools included are a semi-serrated knife, a pair of scissors, a bottle opener, a can opener, a lanyard loop, a file, a pair of scissors, a small flathead screwdriver, a larger screwdriver, and a not-quite-Philips driver. All work well except for the wanna-be-Philips driver. Gerber slimmed it down to an absurd "t" shape that cams out very easily if pressure and alignment aren't maintained perfectly. Overall, it's a okay multitool, but it's got too many shortcomings for me to recommend without reservations. If you use your multitool primarily for pliers, you may want to consider it. Otherwise you can probably find a better option.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my favorite tool I don't like the way the pliers unless fully extended gets in the way of advancing the knife. And I must be uncoordinated because the flick of the wrist just ain't happening. But don't get me wrong it looks and feels well made I just would rather have the pliers not advance the way it dose. Lots of tools for everyday use so if you hang it on your belt you will get lots of action out of it. I have to say its and average multi-tool to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Tool! I've had another high quality brand multi-tool for over 10 years and was able to get my hands on the Diesel. This tool is not only extremely functional and useful for my camping trips, but it is very stylish in its black color. As a DIY-er I typically have my tool box around, but when I need to get a quick job complete and I do not feel like hauling my tools, this multi-tool is extremely helpful. I would totally recommend it! I would say though when you first get it, watch out for some oil or lubricant residue. Also it may be a bit tight at first and may need to loosen up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Multi-Tool on the market My husband is a mechanic at an ethanol plant and has had a pair of these on him daily for years. We have tried a few other cheaper brands but they never last as long as these Diesels. They come in black or silver, we have a few pairs of both. They are extremely tough and will last years as long as you don't try anything ridiculous with them. Best multi-tool out there in our opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi-Tool This is my favorite multi-tool ever! Gerber makes great products and this is no exception. I don't leave home without this thing. I use the pliers most, and the integrated wire cutters are super handy too. The belt pouch is sturdy. If you are shopping for a multi-tool, this is a great one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough little tool! This is an amazingly strong multitool that's small enough to comfortably fit in your pants pocket while not being too heavy. The pliers are very tough and I used them to remove some old tight bolts without problems. The blades are long for a multitool and are very sharp. The handles have a lock back mechanism for the blades which makes them safer to use. Thought the flat type phillips screwdriver might have problems but it works well. Scissors come in very handy and are easy to use. There are markings on each side of the base of each handle to let you know which tool is on that side which makes it easy to find the tool you need. Gerber is one of Fiskars' brands and has the quality I expect from them. The Diesel Multitool has a lifetime warranty. If this has the tools you need you won't be disappointed in the quality or durability. I've been using this a lot without a single issue other than the first time I used it I had some black marks on my hands. After wiping the tool clean that hasn't been an issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent multi-tool This is definitely one of my favorite multi-tools in my toolbox. The tools have very little to no play when unfolded and the unlock mechanism is easy to operate. As far as the pliers go - they are sturdy and the amount of surface area on the handles make them comfortable to use as they don't dig into your hand. You can also extend the pliers by pressing just one of the two buttons - very useful! The knife blade is very sharp and has held up nicely. Similarly, the scissors are a welcome surprise and have come in very handy. The finish has held up pretty well. It has rubbed off a bit in some high spots and edges though. The tools are a little on the difficult side to unfold as you have to dig under the notch behind them with your fingernail in order to pry them out OR unfold everything and pull them up from the side. They are also somewhat stiff and therefore difficult to unfold if simply using the notch. My other gripe is with the Philips head - it is way too small to be useful on larger screws. One of the more annoying issues is the fact that since the tools open inward, using the knife to cut something is a pain since you need to work near an edge in order to get the blade flat against whatever you're trying to cut. You can always open up the tool to minimize this, but it still isn't ideal. Just something to keep in mind if you're planning on heavy knife usage. Overall, I highly recommend this tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built strong and tight This really is a MULTITOOL. For once a multi-tool does those jobs they claimed could be done. The pliers really do compound your application enough to hold most small fasteners. Even the saw is long enough and sharp enough to work right out of the box. The only point I found to be a problem is the “single handed operation” is definitely not going to be possible for a period of time to allow enough wear to loosen up the action. That is actually a great thing to me because I got tired of having my multi-tool “wobble” right out of the package. GERBER GOT THIS ONE RIGHT. IT’S MADE TIGHT AND WORKS RIGHT STRIGHT OUT OF THE BOX!
