Made for a short time in the mid 1990's
Tool is UNUSED in original factory box-NEW OLD STOCK
The Military Provisional Tool #5 was an unexpected surprise from Gerber in the early 1990's. No one expected the company that pioneered the sliding jaw concept to bring out a butterfly opener. Legend has it that Gerber developed the tool in order to compete with Leatherman for a U.S. Government order. The MPT won the bid, and Gerber went on to produce the tool for the civilian market. It was generally considered to be the "economy" model in Gerber's line.
