    That's what I wanted to say after seeing the poll. I got mine around '96, and it's still going strong. It still rides in my EDC bag.

    Not sure I'd buy anything Gerber these days.

    LM Wave with extension and bit kit in my Maxpedition Larkspur and a Vic Climber in my pocket. Wish at times that I had gotten the Surge for the larger scissors.

    I've had my micra on me everyday since I bought it. It's my true EDC.

    Gerber Suspension that I've had for quite a few years now, that's been with me to the desert multiple time and many deployments. Somehow, I've avoided losing it. This goes in my EDC bag, as I lost the sheath for it long ago. And a cheap unknown brand MT in my work bag. I've used that one too for at least 8 years now and ever let me down any time that I've needed it.

    My skeletool arrived today and it will be replacing my old clunky Gerber. I love the functionality of a multitool with the weight of a pocket knife.

    I am considering one of the bit kits. Do all leatherman tools use the same size bits or do I need to be careful which kind I buy?

    Mostly the mini, but sometimes the crunch.

    For awhile now, it's been the LM Mini Tool.
    The ol Wave rides in the backpack now.

    Been looking for a good multi-tool with a clip. Leathermen tend to rust while I'm looking at them. But that one looks a bit too good not to take a chance on it.

    Not in NYC. With the current retarded interpretation of the Sullivan Act, you want to avoid any multi-tools with blades that can be opened from the outside of the tool.

    I'm currently carrying a Leatherman Rebar, Leatherman Wingman, and a Victorinox Champion Plus.

    The Leatherman Wave is next on my list, because of all the detachable bit possibilities :)

    A good question. I was wondering that, myself. Or course, I have yet to buy a Leatherman piece that has a bit driver; but the year is still relatively young. Soon :)

    All Leatherman tools that have bit drivers can accept any of their flattened bits. Most of their other models that have no bit drivers - Super Tool 300, Rebar, the Juices - can take an adapter that also accepts the bits and an accessory extension that, in addition to the Leatherman proprietary, also takes regular 1/4 in. hex bits, which can include sockets.
    Altogether, I firmly believe that anything (reasonably sized) that can't be torqued with this wonderfully compact and adaptable setup is unworthy of the honor. ;)
