Gerber’s Center-Drive Plus offers uncompromising performance through revolutionary design, now optimized for weapons maintenance. The innovative center-axis driver opens to align like a real screwdriver, yielding maximum torque and rotation. No productivity is sacrificed with the addition of a 30% longer outboard blade and one-thumb opening sliding jaws. Full size, real tools – the multi-tool just got a reality check. New to the Plus is the addition of much-requested scissors, tumble-finished tools, and a premium leather sheath.

GERBER’s brand-new, elevated version of the category-defining Center-Drive multi-tool, the Center-Drive Plus, will be available at retail and on January 22, 2019. MSRP for the Center-Drive Plus is $136.00.


The original Center-Drive was a total market disruptor and best-seller for us right out of the gate,” says Eric Moore, Gerber Product Manager. “The expansion of the Center-Drive lineup is a no-brainer. We took cues from our customers to add the most commonly-requested features like spring-loaded scissors, a partially serrated blade, and an American-made leather sheath to create an even better version of an already hardworking multi-tool.

Gerber’s Center-Drive multi-tool changed the game, designed for real life and heavy-duty work. New to the Center-Drive Plus version is the addition of spring-loaded scissors, a partially serrated blade, tumble finished tools, and a snap closure leather sheath. The thoughtful one-thumb opening design allows for quick deployment of the three full-size tools you depend on most: the pliers, the blade, and the center axis screwdriver.

Keeping the Center-Drive’s namesake, the 3.2 inch magnetic bit driver opens to align with the center axis of the tool – giving you all the torque and rotation of a traditional screwdriver. The full-size external blade conveniently replaces your everyday pocket knife is now partially serrated. All tools are tumble finished for a sleek, polished look that doesn’t sacrifice performance.
