Is there such an animal as a custom multi-tool?

Feb 3, 2001
Hello guys it's me ready to be a pain in the a** again!
I am still trying to decide what to buy as a first custom. Then I wondered does any custom maker build multi-tools? Does any one come close? Would any one buy or use a custom multi-tool? Could a custom maker even do a small volume multi-tool? Thanks for the responses. And as fun as it is, the Gerber build your own multi-tool website doesn't count.
That's an interesting question. The answer is probably no though. The cost of making a custom multitool would be astronomical. I haven't even seen very many handmade/custom scout knives. I did get to see Richard Rogers beautiful horseman's knife at last years Blade Show. I suppose it would sort of qualify as a multitool in a broad sense. You would have to be Sheik Yaboodie with your own stable of Arabians to use it, in my mind. If you find one, please let us know.

Seen some custom made SAK type stuff. But no folding pliers.
Didn't Gerber have a sort of semi-custom option where you ordered a basic plier/handle and had the option of doing a limited mix and match to get the tool you wanted?

That is as close to a "Custom" as I am aware of, not custom as in hand made quality, but custom to the extent that you have limited design control.

www.gerberknives.com ... I think thats the website. You can pick between a few different tips, and a few different tool option, and color of you handles...

It's pretty cool, I bought one for a friend once...
