    Swisstool Spirit. Just look at all the tools they put in it for such a small package. Plus it's Victorinox quality.

    i have just upgraded from my blast to a wave... and i can not complain. just about any full size multi will work for you as long as you think about the size and weight.

    I like my gerber recoil if nothing else for the locking tools.

    Leatherman Wave. I would have chosen the Swisstool but some of the implements are too hard to deploy. The Wave doesn't have this issue. :)

    I am going to have to go with the Swisstool Spirit X. I have had mine for a few weeks now, and it has replaced my trusty Wave for EDC. It is the highest quality multi I own. I usually have a Benchmade Mini Grip clipped in my front pocket, so I really don't miss the one handed opening blades on the Wave. Now if Victorinox would just put a diamond coated file on the Spirit I would be set....

    For a large heavy MT I would go with the SOG PowerLock. If you don't need pliers, I would go with Vic One-hand Trekker. A smaller full size would either be a SOG Paratool, Vic Swiss Tool Spirit S, Leatherman Wave or Leatherman Charge TTi, you can't go wrong with either of them. But if I were on a desert island and could only have one, it would probably be the Victorinox Swiss Tool Spirit S.

    Leatherman Wave. The bit holder + bit kit and the external folding components really adds versatility to this tool. The needle nose pliers are quite handy too.

    I like my black Gerber Gator pretty well. I have a SOG Powerlock coming in the mail today. The thing I like about that one already is that you can buy individual tools for it to make you ideal multi tool. I would say the Leatherman Wave if they made a lefty version.

    I've carried a Wave for 3 years at home, work, camping. I love it. My dad just got a Core and he loves that one. It's a lot lighter then the Wave and has bigger handles for 'man' hands lol.

    I pocket carried my Wave this weekend for the first time (with a pocket clip), and it's awesome. I honestly don't notice it anymore than I do a Skeletool, and it's so much more tool.

    Leatherman Wave for me. Started with the PST, but the handles just made it hard to do heavier work with it. Bought the Wave when it first came out, and just picked up a new Wave last week for the bits and to replace my old, abused sheath. May even try a pocket clip on of these days.

    Gerber Pro Scout 600 for me I have an SOG Paratool a Leatherman Wave and a SOG Power Plier all good but none of them can compete when it comes to one hand opening.
