    Swisstool CS. The one I have came with the wrench and bits. (No corkscrew or eyeglass screwdriver.) Also the Lee Valley Pocketwrench II slips right into the pouch it came with almost as if made for it. Another plus.
    Oh my. CountyComm 4" Widgie also snugs in. Widgie is sideways, Pocketwrench behind bit holder. Awesome!

    My concept for a pocket hammer is to build a hollow head that can be filled with whatever heavy stuff you have lying around (rock...dirt... water...depleted uranium...). Then fit it with a folding handle and you're in business.

    The two best multitools I have ever used are the pre2004 Leatherman Wave and the Victorinox Spirit. Both have their pluses and minuses, but I find them to be the best in terms of quality, fit & finish, and general usability. If I had to use one tool the rest of my life, I would be pleased with either one.

    Victorinox Spirit!

    The best full-sized multi-tool out of all that I have including the LM Wave, Skeletool, Pulse, SOG Powerlock S62, Powerlock 2.0 EOD B69, Gerber Diesel, Compart Sport 400 and Vic Swisstool RS. I will most likely sell off the rest. I will keep the Swisstool RS and may keep the Powerlock S62. The rest must go.

    I use mine maybe ten times a day, so no extreme user here, but I've been carrying a Charge Ti for about a year now, used to carry a supertool and some gerber equivalent before that, but I really appreciate the one handed blade access, and the different bit options. The Spirit looks good, but I don't know if I could sacrifice one handed operation to try it.

    A nod to the Swiss Tool. but a different model. The CS Plus.
    http://www.swissarmy.com/MultiTools/Pages/Product.aspx?category=swisstool&product=53946

    You can always use the extra tools and when you don't, leave'em in the bag, or car or at home. But, when you need the bits and the multi-tool, there you have it in one package.
    Here is a good review on the Swiss Tools in general: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMAKznXul5M

    Some good points and comparisons to other multi-tools. And yes, you can get them in black if ya need to be all tactical.

    Apart from the small or keychain models (different topic, really) I'd go for the Swiss Tool CS Plus as my EDC multi-tool.

    Note: I've owned a variety of Leatherman's and played with a lot of Gerbers, and SOGS.

    Cheers,
    Halvdan

    If I could only chose one multitool - it would have to be this one! :evilgrin:
    Not very portable, but I'll cope with that ;D

    I am looking at buying my first multitool. It will be my only multitool. My criteria are:

    [*] Outside accessible blade as I do not carry a folder in my EDC.
    [*] Full size form factor
    [*] Serrated or rescue knife
    [*] Exchangeable bit screwdriver
    [*] Reasonable quality knife
    [*] Good pliers

    At the moment the Charge Tii seams to fit the criteria nicely. It will be my only tool.

    perhaps you should list some criteria. also i'd recommend a new thread.

    My bad, i thought you were looking for suggestions for a multitool based on a set of criteria. if that were the case then a new thread would have been a good idea. i misunderstood your post.

    The Swisstool is a great option. If weight is an issue go with the Spirit.
