    I second that. $20 odd dollars with a lot of useful features, especially the box opener and springloaded pliers (IMO, LM needs to add them to all their plier based tools. Also a better EDC tool than Juice S2)

    I like the LM Rebar, but there are mixed reviews on it. The wingman is a good option too, but I don't like the spring feature, I feel like I will break it. It probably wouldn't break...and if it did leatherman would replace it anyway.. but it just feels weaker to me for some reason.

    Paul Chen multi tasker. You can have it for less than €10,00.
    It hasn't main pliers, only a little one.

    It might help if we knew what you plan to use the MT for, what tools you would like it to have.

    That said I'm recommending the Rebar at just a little more than the cost of a wingman or sidekick it's a heck of a deal. It's basically a mini supertool 300 so it's a workhorse.

    Stanley make a cheap one that's decent.

    I bought one when I didn't have access to my wave for several months, thinking it would be rubbish, but didn't want to buy another leatherman...

    Anyway, it was flawless. Used it pretty much every day, and I work in construction. It now lives in the car :)

    Rebar is cheapish, quite light and strong. Never held a wingman so cant compare. I did find my Rebar a bit bitey when new.

    Leatherman Wingman or Sidekick, depending on your needs. I loved my Wingman before I gave it to my brother-in-law and he loves it too.

    Vote for Rebar.

    The tools don't lock on a Sidekick or Wingman. They do on the Rebar.

    I have all three Leatherman - Rebar, Wingman and Sidekick, the Rebar has the most solid feel to it but the ability to access the knife on the Wingman and Sidekick OH is a huge bonus, I mainly use the Sidekick in Combo with my Surge.

    If you want scissors go for the Wingman or Rebar/Micra combo, I was lucky in Perth they had the Rebar and Micra set for $69 AUD. Also add a Removable Bit Driver to the Rebar and it adds more options.

    I love my Rebar! It's the closest thing to the original PST, but bigger with locking tools. Not as big as a 300. Perfect.

    I bought a Stanley multitool for each car after buying one on clearance at Target. It is very well made especially for the price/

    I feel that the Rebar is the perfect combination of size, weight, price and capability.

    My uncle has carried a SOG Paratool for years, and its a great, compact, affordable tool. I just ordered one for $45 to compare to my Vic Spirit and to see if SOG quality is still what it used to be on their tools...

    In my opinion, it's not. I have an old Para, and the inner tools are of much better quality than current production Paras.

    Your Vic Spirit will put it to shame, quality - wise.
