Gear Patrol Editor’s Pick For Best Multi-Tool of 2018 Is The Center-Drive

Gear Patrol named the Center-Drive as the Editor’s Pick for Best Multi-Tool of 2018, beating out offerings from Leatherman, Victorinox, and SOG.

Writer Tanner Bowden states, “The fundamental idea behind a multi-tool — to pack as many individual tools into the smallest, pocketable form — presents a dangerous flaw. Quantity can become a detriment to function. Think about it — how many of the dozen-plus claimed “tools” are you leveraging in a pinch? Gerber asked that exact question to the contractors, mechanics, outdoorsmen and members of the armed forces who use its tools. Then, it culled the common denominators and set out to make the ultimate master-of-a-few, failure-at-none multi-tool and came up with the Center-Drive.”

I own a Gerber Gator Combo Axe that I purchased a L.L. Bean. I’m interested in receiving the free handle cap that is available from your company.
I wasnt able to locate the form to request the handle cap on your website. The phone instructions are to locate the forms under Notifications at the bottom of your home page, however, I did the a Notification link.

Would you be able to send the request form to me or direct me to the form on your web site. Thank you. Mark and Jennifer Beck
