Description

The Style PS is Leatherman’s TSA compliant multi tool. It has no blade and a much more basic tool loadout than the Dime, consisting of just pliers, tweezers, a pair of scissors, and a combination file cross driver. It also shares many of the same fail points as the Dime. In our previous review of the Style PS we were very impressed with its overall construction. We wish the main blade were not serrated. Yes, a serrated edge cuts a few things a little better than a straight edge. But that serrated edge suffers or completely fails to cut other things, especially when it is dulled. Once dull, a serrated edge is more difficult to sharpen, whereas the included sharpener on the Signal could be used to resurface an entirely straight-edged blade. The inclusion of a serrated portion on the blade seems like a marketing move more than a practical one. The Signal is unique and functional. It isn't too huge or too clumsy to use. With it, Leatherman comes another step closer to abandoning their proprietary bit driver interface. They built in the expected "squashed" bit driver, but they also included a standard 1/4 inch drive bit holder. We like this. The standard bit holder isn't oriented in an ideal fashion, but it is better than nothing. For survivalists looking for a multi-tool designed with bushcraft in mind, while also functional around the home, the Signal is a great piece of gear to add to the kit.

he Dime Travel is a bladeless mini multi-tool, capable of being attached to keychains, lanyards, and more. Bustling with a wide variety of implements, including a pair of spring loaded needle nose pliers as its central appliance. The Dime Travel mini multi-tool easily collapses down for fast transport, with tools folding into the handles. The lanyard ring is of much greater importance on micro multi tools than full sized ones. The one on the Dime unfortunately doesn’t seem to take this into account. It’s a tiny little ring with a small keyring on it. It makes it very easy to connect to your keychain but also breaks when just a little force is applied to it, leaving you with a keychain multi tool that won’t stay on your keychain anymore. Both of these multi-tools can be handy in other ways too. I’ve used each to help disassemble larger items and perform various tasks around the house. They’ve also come in handy at work, turning the occasional bolt or screw. For superficial tasks, the Gerber and the Leatherman perform almost identically. What’s Different The few tools it includes — an upgraded steel blade, good pliers, screwdrivers, and a bottle opener — are the most often used, and this tool gets these right. But that's it; if you're seeking all the tools possible, you'll be let down with this stripped-down modal. Of the remaining tools, though, our biggest complaint is with the bit driver. With the Skeletool CX, even more than with other models, Leatherman could have easily included a standard 1/4" bit driver. Still, we have tested this model for over three years, and it has slowly grown on us. Thus, the Skeletool is our top recommendation for a portable, daily multi-tool to leave clipped on your person at all times.Finally, the tweezers are more useful than any of the others I’ve seen in my day, such as those found in a Victorinox, and I’ve pulled bee stingers and splinters out with no issue as to their ability to grasp. What we don’t like about the Gerber Dime A. No, though many features are shared with a larger multitool, the Dime is meant for smaller jobs and menial tasks, not the heavy-duty usage of a full-sized multitool. I would say that they occupy separate levels of size and utility. Got questions, comment below & talk with T&P’s editors! Upon diving into the details, however, you’ll discover two very different tools. Most noticeable is the build quality.

For people who rely on a multi-tool, the carefully selected range of the Dime Travel‰'s tool series is a recognizable asset. In addition to stainless steel pliers and wire cutters that elegantly butterfly open, there‰'s a set of spring-loaded scissors, medium and small flat drivers, tweezers, a bottle opener that is exposed even when the tool is closed, and a fine and coarse file. The stand-out addition to this travel-friendly version of the classic Gerber Dime is the evolutionary zipper hook, which attaches to a broken luggage zipper in a pinch. A multi-tool that optimizes ergonomics and portability by reducing the tool set to the most important ones for daily use and carry Now, it’s worth mentioning that a TSA agent’s main priority is safety. If they feel like anything you have can be used as a weapon, it’s their job to make sure that doesn’t make it onto a plane. Keep in mind that that's ultimately up to the officer's discretion. That said, these tools are compliant with the most recent rules and regulations. Adam Molina is a product review expert and seasoned everyday-carry enthusiast.

But one of these is advertised as a “zipper puller.” Why would you go through the trouble of pulling out your multi-tool just to open a zipper? To be honest, I came into this test expecting to hate the Dime Travel. I’ve previously tested a standard model, and it was one of the worst multi-tools I’ve ever owned. If you really feel like you need two knife blades on such a small multi tool the Vise provides them. For build quality and overall usefulness though, we say go with the Dime. Dime Vs Leatherman Squirt PS4 A. The base Gerber Dime is not technically approved, given the knife blades, but there is a separate Gerber Dime Travel, with many of the same features, that is approved. Q. How big is the Gerber Dime? Pliers are an obvious necessity for a Gerber, and these itty bitty pliers actually do have quite a bit of utility. The point of the pliers meet up with a slight separation closer to the wide section intended for grabbing nuts, bolts, and other wide objects. There are also a pair of wire cutters built directly into the pliers, as found on most pliers nowadays.

The Dime Travel suspends neatly from a keychain and provides resource for a wide swath of problem-solving potential. With its series of useful tools, including spring-loaded needle nose pliers, the tiny, lightweight Dime spins out assistance as needed. Obviously, this isn`t designed for major DIY jobs or large cutting tasks, but I have other tools for those situations. There are Swiss Army knives (SAK) that come with small pliers, but pliers are only available on a few models with a large number of tools and layers. This makes them very bulky to carry and more cumbersome and inefficient to use. To avoid that situation altogether, here are some of the best TSA-friendly tools that you can take with you on your next trip. Finishing out the list are the pair of screwdrivers, one a wide flathead, useful for driving screws as well as prying, and a smaller pointed screwdriver, for Phillips head and smaller flathead screws. This is where the file is also found, on either side of the Phillips driver are a hatched, and double-hatched file, neither of which have been found to be useful. Gerber Dime (Joel Mason) How we tested the Gerber DimeIt may say "Travel" on it but I would carry this with me every day. This would be an ideal gift for anybody. Keep it close by on you keychain as you never know when it might come in handy with its copious amounts of useful tools. The brilliantly thought out tool selection solves many problems that may occur during travel and day to day life. The most ingenious of which is the evolutionary zipper hook, which attaches to and make opening a broken luggage zipper super easy. As well as a set of needle nose stainless steel pliers and wire cutters that elegantly butterfly open, theres a set of spring-loaded scissors, medium and small flat drivers, tweezers, a bottle opener that is exposed even when the tool is closed, and a fine and coarse file. The Dime Travel, Gerber’s TSA compliant version of the Dime, replaces the knife blade with a blunt tip file. Scissors and Tweezers The weight and size of the tool as a whole is also a huge plus. This thing is tiny, weighs nearly nothing, and provides a ton of function to my every-day-carry. Construction is incredibly well done, without much excess.

EDC enthusiasts and people who already carry a full size multi tool will enjoy adding this to their daily carry. This exceptional product is equipped with almost every imaginable tool, organized and optimized for compact function For what it is, and especially for what you pay for it, it provides one of the better sets of tools on the market. It’s important to understand when reviewing these tools that we were grading on a curve. It’s a given that the tools on the Dime aren’t as capable as those on full sized multi tools. What we’re looking for is how they hold up and function for everyday tasks. Pliers and Wire CuttersThis isn’t intended to be your only multi tool. It’s meant to be the tool that you can bring with you no matter where you’re going. It’s small enough to fit on your keychain and light enough that you won’t even notice it’s there. Gerber offers the Dime in two versions and several different colors. Gerber Dime Tools
