If you’re struggling to find the best gift for your dad this Father’s Day, our friends at Gerber have you covered. For decades, Gerber has made quality everyday carry tools, and their newest and most innovative EDC tools have your dad and his needs in mind this year.

Gerber Dual-Force

The butterfly opening Dual-Force takes its inspiration and aesthetic from the Center-Drive that came before it, while introducing a new plier design not yet seen in modern multi-tools. This is where it gets its name—the pliers operate with a 2-position slip-lock design and larger teeth for better leverage, giving it twice the jaw strength and grip force and even better control. Pair this with a layered jaw construction, and the Dual-Force is a serious contender for an actual dedicated pair of pliers. Your dad might have his trusty pair of dedicated pliers somewhere in his garage, but now he can make it a part of his EDC.

Gerber DoubleDown

For the dad who loves the great outdoors, the Gerber DoubleDown is a great gift. One look at the foldable machete clues you on its design heritage as a butterfly knife. The mechanism allows Gerber to make a sizeable outdoors knife take up less space than a traditional folding knife had it employed a more standard full-tang design. Safety is at the heart of the knife’s design, with a unique quad lock system that requires all four locks to be engaged for its twin handles to move. There’s even a built-in safety detent that stops the blade as you close it, giving you time to get your fingers out of the way of the edge as it moves. The DoubleDown can transition between being a knife, a machete, and a hatchet all in one tool, eliminating the need to pack all three when your dad heads out on the trail.

Gerber Custom Fastball

The Gerber Custom Fastball offers made-in-the-USA EDC quality for a premium addition to dad’s collection. It’s a particularly great option for Father’s Day because you can customize it to make it uniquely dad’s own. The Fastball features a 3” S30V blade with a flipper opening for easy one-handed operation. Putting the knife to use is an effortless experience thanks to its smooth one-handed flipper deployment made easy with B.O.S.S. Tech ball bearings in the pivot and a precision detent that lets you “lightswitch” the blade open and closed at a whim. If you opt for a custom knife, you can choose between 14 different handle colors or even swap to carbon fiber or copper handles if the aluminum handles don’t suit dad’s preference. And there’s an extensive library of engravable illustrations to choose from for that finishing touch.
