If you were to discover that this engineering masterpiece was inspired by the bridges of Portland, Oregon, dont make the mistake of thinking that Gerbers gotten all misty-eyed and romantic. On the contrary, the Suspension has all the down-and-dirty performance characteristics a tough guy would expect.


This is a classic workhorse with spring-loaded pliers, the patented Saf.T.Plus™ component locking system, a ballistic nylon sheath, and the very same structural integrity that goes into every Gerber tool.


Oh sure, it's a sleek looking son-of-gun. And the open-frame configuration is something of a break-through where the industry is concerned, but just because its got nice lines, there`s no reason you cant use it in some pretty ugly situations.



Features:


  • Needlnose pliers
  • Wire cutter
  • Fine edge knife, serrated edge knife
  • Saw
  • Scissors
  • Crosspoint screwdriver, small and medium flatblade screwdrivers
  • Can opener
  • Bottle opener

      Good value

      Posted by Baldini on 22nd Jul 2020

      Lots of bad reviews about this product but I've had mine for years and it's still going. I'm sure it doesn't match up to other multi tools that cost several times as much but that's ok. It's not a hammer, or a spanner or a £200 multi tool. It's a useful, cheap(ish) multi tool that will help out in a pinch. If you need something tougher then it's good advice to buy something more expensive.

      Don't bother.

      Posted by SL on 2nd Feb 2020

      I've had one of these for a few years now, and it was actually my first real multi-tool. But since going up to Victorinox and Leatherman I see why this is cheap. The blades and saw are tiny for the weight you carry about. And many of them work poorly It weighs the same as a Leatherman Wave and the tools on the Wave are far, far bigger and more useful. The Wave is far more expensive, but I'd save £10-£15 more and grab a Leatherman Sidekick, Wingman, or maybe even a Rebar if you can catch it in a sale. If you do want a Gerber aim for the 600 series.

      Great multitool.

      Posted by Stevo on 4th Jul 2017

      I really like the Suspension. Mine is well made and for the past several years it has never let me down. Alright, I don't use it daily and never abuse it. But it often is ideal for the job at hand. It may not be in the same class as a Leatherman but it is certainly more than adequate. At a fraction of the Leatherman's cost. As a company Gerber is in my experience very good to deal with. IMHO, well recommended!

      It is what it is a budget multi tool

      Posted by MattG on 9th May 2015

      I am in two or three minds when it comes to multi tools. They have a place and are very much needed and used, daily sometimes. I work abroad a lot and a swiss army knife and a multi tool are ever present in my bag of tricks. I use them and they wear out, well some parts wear out and some parts don't. The blades generally sharpen well but then sharpen down to a tooth pick in a year or so. I am reluctant to pay a huge amount of money on a multi tool when the pliers reach the end of their serviceable life and have to be retired but other tools still have life left in them. I like this tool and it's price, it isn't a trophy piece and I have no hesitation using it. It is well made and has the right combination of tools on it. The wire cutters meet 100% along the line of the cutting edges. The pliers are good and thumb studs are a nice feature as are the blade locks, but some tools are quite fiddly to get open but are good to use. It costs £33.95 so I reckon I can use and retire 3 or maybe 4 of these for the price of a top end multi tool . My opinion is it is a value for money piece.

      Not a fan

      Posted by John on 22nd Sep 2014

      It's about looks (pretty) versus practicality. I was seduced but won't be again. In a world of Victorinox and Leathermans, I won't be swayed away from them in the future. I have many tools at a similar or slightly greater price that do the job infinitiely better. Find another tenner and buy something else.

      not for me

      Posted by hutch on 10th Jan 2014

      I bought this from another site but I hope my opinion is helpful, while this item is not for me it would be suitable for someone who is new to multi tools or for a youngster on a camping trip maybe first off the standard sheath, pliers feel rather flimsy and I wouldn't rely on them for anything to heavy the wire cutters struggled to cut a paper clip! the thumb studs on the serrated and plain edge blade are quite useless and painful even after oiling the pivot, plain edge is rough and needed cleaning up the rest of the tools (if you have no nails or larger fingers) are too hard to get open without a second pair of pliers. screwdrivers are ok, scissors are very poor, bottle opener works fine but the can opener needed sharpening for it to work, and lastly the saw when open and locked in place there is still a lot of play in it and while it works fine takes twice as long as saws on leatherman and victorinox tools

      18 months regular use

      Posted by skc on 30th Nov 2011

      Had one of these not from HH. Good enough to start with after 18 months it snapped but it had earned it's keep and was wearing out might get another one.

      False economy

      Posted by Jon James on 9th Nov 2011

      I didn't buy this from heinnie but here's a review anyway. Basically, after a few months using it at work it snapped in half, at the pliers pivot. Blades could be bigger. Nothing on it feels particularly strong. The spring loaded pliers were a joy to use though, until they broke. I've since replaced it with a Leatherman Wave, £90 from heinnie, which has lasted me 9 months so far with no problems. On a £ per month basis, the Wave is already better value, and I expect it to last a good while yet.
