3Of the “7 uses”, I would only recommend using the bottle opener and pry bar
By Hoppaguy
I have had the Gerber Shard for a few months now and have traveled on an airplane several times. While I have not had the Shard confiscated yet, airport security does look at it very carefully. I had one TSA agent ask me flat out what it was and I told him it was a bottle opener. With that being said, I have tried what I think are all “7 uses” which I have listed below.

1. Bottle opener = works well and looks more respectable on my keychain over the Coors Light one I had on there
2 & 3. Small and medium flat drivers = too wide for most screws that you might use
4. Philips screwdriver = works well with smaller head screws but not helpful on even medium sized screws
5. Wire stripper = not very effective as you have to be very careful so as not to rip the wire, much easier to use a normal wire stripper
6. Pry bar = very effective, I was able to open a can of paint with no problems
7. lanyard/keychain attachment hole (kind of a stretch calling this a use) = large lanyard hole which easily accommodates key chains or hooking to your pack

In terms of the 7 uses, I would say besides the bottle opener the pry bar is the only really other “useful tool. Overall though, if you’re looking to replace your free Budweiser or Coors Light bottle opener on your keychain, then this is a great tool. You get a lot of “wow that’s cool” factor.

4Better than I thought
By chad
I actually bought this more as a joke since I was buying something else. It has proven to be very handy. The pry bar works good as a standard screw driver and the philips side also works well. I have tried the bottle opener multiple times and it gets the cap off the first time. The pry bar end has also taken the place of my pocket knife when opening products/boxes. It isn’t very sharp but it is just enough to bust the tape and get through the twisties.

1Adequate bottle opener, unique on keyring, poor with other functions.
By A. Newhouse
I agree word for word with the recent review by amost6.
The bottle opener is OK, and this is a small and “cute” thing to hang on your keyring. But that’s about it. Screwdrivers are practically useless; “wire stripper” is a joke. Philips screwdriver is sharp enough to poke you through your pocket, but not shaped well enough to be useful.
If you want a well-made, serious version of this tool, which may have been the inspiration for the Shard, check out the Atwood Prybaby. The Piranha Pocket Tool is a slightly larger version with more “wrenches”. Warning – you’ll pay for the quality on these tools – something like 7X-10X the cost of the Shard. There are other similar, well-made, expensive options available if you dig into some “EDC” (EveryDay Carry) sites.

If you’re looking for something FAR more useful and only SOMEWHAT more expensive, get a Leatherman Micra. You can even remove the knife blade if you want to take it on a plane. Also, the Micra’s version of a flattened Philips driver is somehow much more functional than the Shard’s, even though it’s shaped even less like a real Philips screwdriver.
If a tiny, non-bottle-opening keyring tool is more your thing, check out the Leatherman Style or classic swiss army knife.
If you want useful screwdrivers in a tool you can take on a plane, Swiss Tech has a few inexpensive options, including: small and simple (Swiss+Tech 75-58355 Screwz-All 4-in-1 Keyring Tool) and larger, with little pliers (Swiss Tech MMCSSS Micro-Max 19-in-1 KeyChain MultiTool).
Any of these would be much more useful than the Shard, without the risk of poking you through your pocket.
