    I've had Gerbers and Leatherman multitools by the thousands, and my 1997 Swisstool is still my go to. Was my first purchase when I started working for REI.

    A Leatherman Surge, with two flat strips of extra bits.

    He's exagerating of course.
    He really meant millions.

    Great combo. I carried one of these 9 years with the bit adapter kit. These days, I'm updated with Leathermen
    that take the either the current flattened bits or the the regular ones using the bit extender or removable adapter.
    It's a more versatile and more compact outfit for the number of bits supplied, but I can't say I found the earlier
    one lacking. I haven't used it in a long time, but keep it out of nostalgia ( I call it a "backup".)
    We went through a lot together.

    The fact that they haven't really changed the design of this tool for all them years kind of speaks volumes doesn't it.
    At the time I fancied the Wave but after spending 20 minutes in a shop handling both, I knew that the Swisstool were going to be the one, what with all the tools having a lock and the overall finish/quality.

    The modern option with the New Wave etc are easier to store but I love using this one too. A little tip of the hat to the older models. I store a few extra bits in the leather case that comes with this to cover all bases

    Love it! Here's my daily companion for 9 years, retired now. Lots of nostalgia, though.
