The Gerber Armbar Drive: Everyday Carry for modern environments





I for one can’t wait for normalcy to return so I can step out and meet friends. Working as a writer for a blog means already being used to working from home, and while I’m sufficiently prepared professionally, the absence of a social life is taking a toll on me. It almost feels like the Gerber Armbar Drive is speaking to be by being entirely relevant in times like these. Since I’m stuck indoors, most of my EDC need pertain to indoor requirements, which the Armbar Drive is more than capable of handling.

A tiny, versatile multitool, the Gerber Armbar Drive packs 7 tools into its small, slick frame. The Armbar Drive’s frame integrates a prybar and bottle opener into its design, while the fold-out tools include a full-size plain-edge knife, an awl for making or enlarging holes, a scissor for cutting, and a 2.5” long screwdriver with a 2-sided bit that you can flip and use based on your need. Pretty useful for a multitool that ultimately folds down to the size of your index finger. The Armbar Drive even has a sister variant, the Armbar Cork, which features a corkscrew with lever arm along with a can/package opener… but given that I haven’t seen a bottle of alcohol in over a month now, I’ll leave that be.
