Gerber Armbar Cork vs Armbar Drive
The Armbar collection contains two different versions with different handles. The Cork collection and the Drive collection. The names already give it away. The Cork-collection is enhanced with a cork screw and the Drive-collection with a screwdriver with double-sided magnetic bit. The Cork collection is also enhanced with a can and packaging opener. The Drive collection is enhanced with a razor-sharp awl.
Both versions are enhanced with a 7 cm long blade. You open it with the thumb hole. A linerlock locks the blade to make sure you can quickly get to work. Both collections are enhanced with scissors. Just like the flat part at the end of the handle that functions as a hammer. A cool detail is the hidden bottle opener and pry-bar. You reveal it by clicking the hammer up. Incredibly innovative!
Our conclusion? The Gerber Armbar is a very valuable addition to your everyday carry. You get a lot of value for money. The price-quality ratio is sublime. Something Gerber manages to do every single time. You cannot go wrong with the Armbar. Because of the wide selection of different colours and tools there is a perfect version for everyone!
