I have been a big fan of Gerber multi tool for many moons, but for some reason I decided it was time for a change. I put serious thought into the Leatherman XTi or XT but something about it kept me away. This morning my Victorinox Spirit Plus showed up.. It is nothing short of incredible. The fit and finish is outstanding, the tool has no play in any of it's parts (and I have read it never will). I am very picky when it comes to a tool I carry daily, and use many many times during the day, this thing has impressed me, greatly. The only thing I am going to miss is that the needle nose don't lock open for spreading things the way my Gerber and Leatherman did. If anyone is in the market for a new multi-tool I highly recommend this thing.
