Topic: Which multi tool do you carry?
Message: Posted by: jdmagic357 (May 16, 2011 08:08AM)
My latest acquisition is the leatherman "Surge" but it's a bit heavy. Was wondering if anybody knew of a similar multitool that was light but still as functional?

Here is a link to the Surge; http://www.leatherman.com/product/Surge

Thanks in advance, for your input.

Can't help. Mine's bigger:

Plus I carry the bit kit with it.

I've heard good things about Gerber. You might want to check them out.

There actually was one I remember seeing last year or so that was very multifuntional but streamlined. If I can remember what it was called I'll post it. I think I need to stop thinking about for a while and maybe it'll come to me.

I never liked the Leatherman style grips. I've always preferred the Gerber line of multi-tools. Here's mine:

Swiss Army Knife count?

I liked the multi tools in Deus Ex. So handy and useful. Except they wore out really fast.

I have a Buck knives bucktool. Has a great grip.

Also have a Victornox Swiss Card Lite. Serves another purpose.

Not a multi-tool, per se, but I collect Swiss Army Knives (mostly Victorinox).

Leatherman Charge TTi. I carry this mainly as a mnemonic reminder: to survive. Anything.

I use the sledge-o-matic, but it can get messy when I start to swing it around.

I've got 3 swiss army knives and a nice leatherman with a., but the one I carry is a Barlow with plastic scales.

Juice.

But then again I like to carry a razor knife when I want something very sharp and a regular knife for other tasks. I'm of the mind that if you want a knife razor sharp carry a razor that way my EDC knife stays sharp longer as I'm not honing it down more than it's designed for.

But the juice is just right for little things and it doesn't take up too much room. Try to score the S2

You know, that reminds me of my Micra, which is on my keychain and I use all the time. The little scissors on it are downright handy.

Just a pocket knife.

Ive always preferred a Gerber. My favorite are the ones that slide out.

Gerber MP400 belt pouch, Wenger Classic 14 Swiss in hip pocket, Leatherman Micra in watch pocket. No (little) job too tough. :lol:

Do you cary it all in your batman utility belt?

When I leave the house I always carry my ATM card, my car keys, and at least one tube of chapstick.

Stool softener.

A bigger knife is a very effective stool softener. Unfortunately I daren't carry one since the cops caught me with a machete. I guess I'm overcompensating with little knives, tweezers, and scissors. Splinter removal is a cinch. Hey, the Swiss Army knife even has a toothpick. What more could a boy ask for?

I am a juggler, so I carry three torches, and three machete's in my car at all times. Once I opened my trunk in front of a volunteer fireman, his jaw dropped when he saw my torches.
