What's your favorite multi tool. Leatherman started it and I've tried several models and makers SOG, Gerber, Leatherman...What's in your pocket?

I have a Gerber that I'm very fond of, it's a quality tool.

My son gave it to me and that makes it my favorite.

only buy an old Gerber, new ones since Fiskars bought em arent as nice, and heavier.

Am carrying a Leatherman Wingman right now.
Has a big scissors on the outside, instead of another blade.
Well made, and a little lighter than the top o the line.

It made me take my Kershaw Leek out of my pocket for the first time in 8 years..,..


and i SELL knives and tools , hahoo.

Leatherman stands by their lifetime warranty, even without documentation. I just sent them my broken one and they sent me a new one! I like the kind where the tools lock into position when open.....the only trouble I ever had with them is the tool snapping back folded when under heavy pressure....especially dangerous in case of the blade. The locking version prevents this.

Ive had a leatherman core for a good 10 ys. now. I found a gerber some time ago, but I liked my leatherman better.

I got a victorinox SwissTool RS and it's been on my belt for 7 years now, it serves me very well and is built like a tank

Swiss army knife. I enjoy the Swiss army knife but the major down side is the blades do not lock. Gerber has a locking blade system but the construction is a bit wobbly for general use. Maybe someone can make a hybrid of these two companies and make a better product.

My dad has carried a pair of small Vise-Grips in a leather belt pouch for years, and swears by them. Pliers-cum-wrench, makeshift handle, and the Vise-Grip brand ones have a wire cutter at the base of the jaw.

Sog powerlock, silver. The power assist EOD multi-tool is also useful, though a C4 fuse well punch isn't so useful in civilian life. Well I guess it could be used as a dibbler, or for making other seed type holes. My hands are relatively fragile and I'm a big fan of pressing on flat sheet metal rather than the backs of all those pointy blade like things when using the wire cutters or pliers (as almost all multi tools seem to want to do).

I will not step out my door with out my leatherman "wave" in my pocket... I've broken a few over the years, but I think they're just super. the knives open from the outside without having to do any fancy fiddling with the tool is the reason I am partial to those. I never could get the hang of easily opening a gerber tool, but some of my friends are just as die hard about those as I am about my wave...
