Multi-tools are great. You can have pliers, scissors, screwdrivers, a few blades and even a ruler all in one hand whenever you need it. But what happens, MacGuyver, when you run across a bomb that needs diffusing or you need to create one to deal with some baddies. How are you gonna sever the yellow wire or crimp those blasting caps with your average, run-of-the-mill multi-tool? If you had the Gerber Multi-Plier 600 DET that wouldn’t be an issue because those features are built-in. Along with the normal multi-tool features, and the explosive features, the DET also has opens with one hand and is decked out in a non-reflective black finish for stealth work. Is it overkill? Of course, but that’s why it’s so awesome.
