Hell, it’s got it’s own website! www.Center-Drive.com. Here is what they tell us. Introducing the Gerber CENTER-DRIVE Gerber, leading the industry in knives, tools and equipment for over 75 years, announces the introduction of the multi-tool that will redefine the category – the Center-Drive. Challenging the status quo, it delivers real and compelling advancements in capability and serves the professional end user like none before it. The Center-Drive. Gerber’s new multi-tool offers uncompromising performance through revolutionary design. Innovative Center Axis Tech™ aligns the full-size driver in the center of the tool to yield maximum torque and rotation, just like the real thing. No productivity is sacrificed with the addition of a 30% larger outboard blade and one-thumb opening sliding jaws. Full size, real tools – the multi-tool just got a reality check. Screw Conventional Thinking. It seems so obvious – but until now no multi-tool has ever offered a full-size driver on the center axis with a standard bit. The result is all the ergonomics and torque you’d expect from the real thing, ready at the flick of a thumb. Cut the B.S. Get right down to business. A single flick of the thumb gets you access to a full-size outboard knife that is 30% larger than the competition. Don’t worry; reverse thumb support gets the job done in confidence. No compromises – in no time. Bend it to Your Will. Adjust to your environment, or force it to adjust to you. It’s your choice. One-thumb opening sliding jaws deliver instant command of the spring-loaded pliers, so you can take control of whatever’s at hand. You can find Gerber online here.
