      Update

      Posted by John on 3rd Apr 2019

      I've had my Dime for 15 months now, so I thought I'd do a wee update on my original review. As I expected the paint is coming off on the handles and I've just lost a second screw on the handles, the blade and package opener are mint condition, both hold a good edge, scissors are working fine but the pliers have never been very good from the start, the bottle opener is loose but still works, all ok with file and screwdrivers, I've never used the tweezers. I've used this daily for 15 months and it's still working, if I lost it would I buy another one? Without hesitation, it's a good EDC at a fair price, it's not perfect but perfect costs a lot more!

      get the leatherman PS4

      Posted by bill on 21st Oct 2018

      Had one of these awhile back and loved it for the first couple weeks, its very compact and dont even notice it on the keys, but then the scissors just completely snapped off when pulling them out, the thickness of the metal connecting them is almost nothing. I expect the other functions would have followed suit but I swapped it for the leatherman PS4 which is almost identical but seems better made. I suppose if you only used the bottle opener and knife etc it may last awhile longer but I think the leatherman is worth the extra money. Only downside is not having the external bottle opener but its not the end of the world. Bear in mind both of these tools are very compact and if you have massive hands it might frustrate you trying to get the tools out.

      Its fine.

      Posted by rook on 24th Jun 2018

      Had the black model for 9 months now. The paint is rubbing off so it looks a bit scruffy, but everything else is just fine. The blade doesn't come very sharp, but I've used the scissors (which work just fine for me) and package opener much more and they were fine out of the box. The file was pretty much useless, but this is probably down to the black coating. The travel model has a much more sensible colour scheme, and loses the not-very-useful blade. If it had anything more useful than the stupid hook, I'd definitely recommend it over the standard dime.

      decent tool

      Posted by Dimitar on 18th Jun 2018

      this in my opinion is a ecent small multi toool. it is small enough for "fit and forget" use, by which I meanto place it on ones keys for everyday EDC. Kudos to Henny's for getting itnext day. Placed my order 21:04 on the Friday and it was with me the Monday 08:22

      Dont waste your money

      Posted by Marcus on 18th Jun 2018

      Just dont bother, build quality is poor, the scissors don't work the packet opener was blunt the small screw driver chipped on first use. Just buy an SAK, less expensive but far superior quality Would still have been disappointed if this novelty had been half the price, such a waste of money!

      Smaller than I thought

      Posted by 303 on 12th Oct 2017

      I must learn to read the size dimensions. 7cms is less than the length of a finger so smaller than I assumed. Means everything is smaller - less easy to open. Not sure what a blade this size would cut. My fault not the company - they do great Products.

      Good EDC

      Posted by John on 11th Sep 2017

      First of all from order to delivery, less than 24hrs ........ witchcraft! I don't think I can add much to the very accurate review by Stevo as I think he nailed it! I ordered the Dime in Black as I thought it looked better, how long the coating will last is anyone's guess,? The tools all open well, although the knife and package opener were dull, 2 minutes and that was sorted. It's a good little EDC Multitool that should give you a few years service if used for what it was designed for. 10 outta 10 to HH.

      Good small EDC multitool

      Posted by Stevo on 7th Apr 2017

      I like the external bottle opener, and how its location frees a blade slot for another tool. So far it has not worn a hole in my pocket. Also good is the packaging blade, which does a nice job as a precise orange peeler. Circumnavigate your orange 3 or 4 times and you pull back each section of rind in turn to reveal the fruit, leaving the skin looking like a flower in bloom. It becomes a game with each orange to see if you can peel it in one intact piece, with more or less equally sized petals. Yes, any good blade can perform the same task, but this one's shape means that you don't have to think as much about going too deep. It also does just fine for those annoyingly tough clamshell packages. Mine needed sharpening to get a decent edge. The main blade has thoughtfully been designed with a useful amount of belly. The curvature gives more cutting edge and imparts a bit more advantage for slicing cuts than would a straight edge. The blunt sheepfoot style tip helps prevent accidents but thanks in part to that short sweep of belly, you also give up the precise tip of a true sheepfoot blade. The scissors are the weak spot for the Dime. Ironic considering that Gerber is owned by Fiskars, whose many types of scissors are what most people think of when the hear the brand name mentioned. The Dime's scissors are let down by imprecise blade alignment and needlessly frail construction. Also they are smaller than those on a Victorinox SD Classic. If the Vic's are rated a 5, the Dime's would be a 3, maybe a 2. Leatherman's little PS4 has similarly tiny scissors yet the quality is easily on par with Vic's. The screwdrivers on the Dime are short but they do work well. The file on the Philips screwdriver is very small. But at least it is there. The black version lessens the ability of the file, seeing that the black coating covers the tiny file teeth. Oops. The colour version of the Dime avoids this. The tweezers are a bit on the weak side, but have given no cause for real complaints as long as too much is not expected of them. The slanted ends help to dislodge certain tiny items. The pliers are where the Dime really performs best, I think. They make up for any lack in the tweezers most of the time. When used within sensible limits, the little pliers do just fine and are the reason I even considered the Dime in the first place. I've tried to be fair in this review. It's best not to praise or condemn a product until it has seen real use. So about two years of service is a reasonable basis here. It is cheaper than the PS4, and individual features are always a series of compromises and trade-offs between similar products. I carry the PS4 more often. Yet the Dime has its amount of pocket time as well. Small but useful, I give the Gerber Dime four stars. HH? Heartily recommended!
