If you’ve hung around GearMoose, you know we’re fans of multi-tools. Not only do they serve a host of functions, they save you from the temptation of using your knife to perform menial tasks. So if you haven’t yet found the right one for you — or if you can’t seem to get enough and keep buying more — the Gerber Shard is a simple, well-made option that is priced exactly right. Manufactured by iconic knife maker Gerber, the Shard is a simple, out-in-the-open design made from stainless steel and coated in titanium nitride.
The light weight (0.6 ounces), compact size (2.75 inches), and large lanyard hole make it an easy addition to throw on your keychain or attach to your pack. When you do, you’ll be prepared to take on more than a few tasks: pry nails, drive screws (flat and cross), strip wire, and of course, open a beer. – $7
