LM Micra on my keyring and a SOG PowerLock in my bag
Ditto here except mine is a no name genertic type called ( Chicago Tools ) which maybe a medium quality Chinese copy of the LM Wave. Bought it as a combination package of MT and a folding knife for $ 14.5 .
Both folding knife and the blade on multitool are lockblades.
They both do what I want them to do.
Neither MT or knife has rusted or broken yet.
i carry a dye dm multitool, its designed to help you fix or maintain a paintball marker but i find it great for other usage.
For most tasks I would use a Leatherman for, I just use my Victorinox Super Tinker, but as far as the actual multi tools go, I guess I would have to say I carry/use my Leatherman Micra the most, so I voted for it.
I typically carry a Leatherman Fuse in my messenger bag that goes with me to work or school, depending on the season. It fits nicely into a pocket in the organizer panel, along with a Bic and a little AA flashlight. I think it's an awesome MT - it's cheap, really compact, and it has a good basic set of tools.
leatherman juice. does a LOT for a little!!!!!
I have to change my vote - lately I have been carrying a Victorinox CyberTool 34. Carries easier in my pocket than my TTi and is just about as useful.
The Artifact is a great tool...even with all the stuff i carry, I usually go for it first since it's always in the small pocket of my jeans.
I'm new to this forum,for the last few years I've been carrying an original Leatherman,works basically for what I need it for.I'd like to get a Leatherman Wave one of these days.
I picked up a Leatherman Skeletool awhile back and I like it alot.
The only multi tool I carry is my little Squirt P4. It is a pretty sick little thing.
Buck X Tract Fin...
For now.... Soon expanding...
I carry the LM Surge Oxide Black.
Serves well for 99% of tasks.
I've been EDC'ing the Leatherman BLAST lately and really like it.
It's a great option that takes a back seat none.
Right now, on my person I have an SAK Super Tinker in my pocket, and not on my person, a Bear Jaws in my briefcase, and in my MP Organizer a Gerber Shortcut.
I have a LM Skeletool and Freestyle on the way from ebay. I believe one of these will be a body carry tool, i.e, the SAK and the Skeletool or Freestyle will ride in my Mike's Urban Wallet ... the new tools can/will replace my defensive blade is what I plan to experiment with.
LM Juice S2 for now... I might check out the LM Squirt PS4 for something a little smaller though. I really like scissors + pliers in compact form
You missed off the original Gerber Multiplier, that came in four flavours: Needle-nose satin steel, blunt-nose satin steel, needle-nose black, and blunt-nose black.
They came available in around 1992, bought mine with the optional tool wallet, from the London Survival Shop at Euston Station, when the shop was there. Cost a packet in those days (around 70 quid, if I recall correctly), but it's been worth it.
I've looked over on ThisIsMoney, but don't really agree the value they've calculated. Given the available spending power of the average Brit in those days (not a hell of a lot), the equivalent price of one of these puppies, my gut feeling is that if these were brand new to the market today (and it the likes of leatherman et al hadn't come along), would be more like probably 170 quid these days!
I've used mine on so many Exercises with the T.A. when I was "in", and in civvy jobs as well, that it's an indispensable tool to me.
An interesting, and oft-overlooked feature, that these original have, is that they can be totally disassembled using nothing more than a pair of Hex or Allen Keys, meaning that if they get completely crudded up (like if you drop them in sand or mud, or something), you can strip them down completely, clean them, re-lube them, and put them back together again. had to do that a couple of times, no dramas.
Try doing that with the more modern offerings >
I carry a Gerber Diesel. When it's not on my person it's always in my EDC bag. I am thinking of getting a Leatherman Surge though.
BE WELL .. GH
I've had my Wave since '98 or '99 and it still works great. Someday I may replace it but there is no need to right now. I had some bad luck with a Supertool that I had first, several broken tools including the pliers, but the Wave has given me no problems.
