Cut The Bull

The Palm-Sized Gerber Bullrush
Multitool Packs A lot Of Punch.

You’ve probably noticed multitools are just about everywhere you turn these days. Big ones, little ones, expensive ones, cheap ones… and everything in-between. The Gerber Bullrush caught my eye because it filled a glaring gap in my toolkit: a mid-sized multitool with big-boy capabilities. In fact, the “Bullrush” moniker fits this mid-size powerhouse quite well.

The 3.6-inch (closed) Bullrush is not overburdened with gizmos, but its simple 6-tool lineup will cater to most of your needs. Included are pliers with full-size jaws teamed up with a partially serrated blade, strap cutter, flat-head driver, large Phillips head driver, and pinch wire cutters. In other words, it’s got the tools you use the most. The handle is made of textured G10 composite, the same stuff found in many custom and higher end production knives and the grips are nicely sculpted to allow for comfort during extended use. A non-reflective, matte black finish makes for excellent stealth.

My favorite feature on the Bullrush is the full-sized plier jaws, which can handle virtually the same heavy-duty chores as my large multitools. Law enforcement and military personnel who are already strapped with a buttload of gear will appreciate this stout, easier to carry tool, and the average sportsman will admire its capabilities and lighter load as well. The Bullrush comes with a compact nylon sheath for belt carry or stowing away with you gear. At 8.5 ounces you’ll hardly know it’s there, and at 69 bucks it won’t break the bank. If you’re looking a common-sense multitool that cuts the bull and gets straight to the job at hand, the Gerber Bullrush is the tool for you!
