Gerber Lockdown Drive

The Gerber Lockdown Drive is a new slim and compact multi-tool that has the same footprint as a run-of-the-mill EDC folding knife, but can do much more than cut. It fits useful EDC functions in its small frame without adding too much bulk and weight to your pockets, while sporting a modern aesthetic that sets itself apart from most multi-tools. It’s an attractive addition to your curated everyday carry ensemble, offering essential functionality at an exceptional price.

The Lockdown Drive sports a 3.87″ length while closed and a 2.5″ plain-edge main blade that locks into place with a secure frame lock. And with a total weight of 4.5 ounces it weighs less than most full-size butterfly style multi-tools. While the Lockdown Drive lacks the pliers that those tools have, it still features 6 dedicated tools including the knife, a chisel, file, awl, 1/4″ locking driver (a much-requested feature on its Armbar predecessor), and even a dedicated exchangeable #11 craft utility blade that lets you do precise cutting tasks without dulling the main blade for frequent use.

The handle features a textured metal exterior that affords you a lot of grip no matter which tool you use, and when you’re done with the Lockdown Drive you can store it in your pockets like an EDC folding knife, complete with deep carry pocket clip for added discretion and storage convenience.

With its rich feature set and compact, modern design, the Gerber Lockdown Drive is set to become your go-to multi-tool as you tackle your essential everyday tasks. It’s an especially good option for anyone who is looking to pare their EDC down to the essentials, as it lets you consolidate a compact toolkit to one item in your pockets.
