Charge TTi as a part of my work edc still going strong here.
LM Charge Ti
LM SKeletool CX (not on list)
Swisstool at work
Gerber multiplier in the car
Gerber PST on the weekends
Sog Powerlock when i need something heavier
Schrade visegrip multitool when camping
For me it's a Charge TTi (I voted the XTi since there's no TTi in the list).
Did you know that when you deploy the pliers, the Charges' straight and serrated blades lock so they can't be accidentally opened? That's a well thought design.
Now I'm thinking of anodizing the Ti handles on mine.
Actually, the Ti and TTi have more in common with each other than either with the XTi. That is the one which provides an additional large bit holder in place of the scissors. For me, that set up is more useful than the dinky scissors supplied, my main disappointment with the TTi. The old Wave had that one right.
What would anodizing do for the finish and appearance of the TTi handles? BTW, exactly what is anodizing, anyway? :-[ ???
Original leatherman in the car, retired Juice Kf4, micra, and squirt P4 in regular rotation around the house, swiss army knife (midnight manager) in my pocket (though I've been considering switching to the micra or squirt).
Why did you buy the leatherman you bought? I got the Kf4 specifically because it had a sawblade and a serrated blade.
You're right :-[ I should have voted for the Ti. Only thing I don't like about the scissors is that they present the sharp edge when deploying them. Other than that, they work just fine for me.
Anodization is a process by which a metal part is covered in a layer of another material by means of an electric current. This changes the properties of the part's surface, making it tougher/harder to scratch, and/or more resistant to rust; think "plating". The part to be anodized is the anode of the electric circuit, hence the name. More info
In this case, anodizing would change the color of the handles. Since they're titanium, no dye is needed, and I can choose the color by selecting the voltage of the current (any color except red and black).
I had been EDCing two LM Micra clones for years. Each one had tools the other hadn't. On one of them, stress fractures appeared on the frame so I started looking for a replacement, and I saw the Micra. Then I thought "I'm carrying 2 small multitools because I don't have enough tools in one, why not carry a larger one instead?". I also needed a decent knife blade. Plus, the Charge had such cool factor... I managed to get one as a gift Been EDCing it since.
Leatherman Skeletool CX has been my recent carry.
Leatherman Crunch in my EDC bag and a Bucktool 360 when I do yardwork.
If im out on the car or going camping its usually a LM charge ALX
But i find myself carrying my LM juice XE6 more as i find it more useful.
And i have my LM squirt on my keys.
I carry a Leatherman Juice (the grey one) it does everything I've ever asked it to do. I also have Gerber Freehand that I've never used but just in case, the knife blade is interesting looking though.
I've carried a Victorinox Swiss Champ XLTwith me everyday for the last 3 or 4 years..
Mine are not on the list, but I carry two :
SOG toolclip, most solid feeling multitool I have ever had, used mostly for heavy jobs.
Leatherman E4, small and easy to use when working on electronics and computers.
I use to carry my Gerber 400 for years. until I got my first leatherman squirt E4 and then the wave. i still have my gerber and the squirt they're more end less used as backups, both come in handy but I miss my wave. But thats going to change come tomorrow found one for $50
I tend to carry a Charge Ti, Juice KF4, or Squirt p4 most of the time. I kinda scale the tool to fit the day.
I also have a beater Kick that gets carried quite a bit.
And two that I occasionally carry, but didn't make the list would be the LM Pulse and Crunch, both of which I like quite a bit.
Also carry a Surge when I'm feeling especially tough. :laugh:
At work, still using a Leatherman Pulse. Does what I need it to do, but I've been eyeing the Skeletool. Just replaced a Micra on my work key ring with a Squirt S4. Also have a P4 (from a Costco combo pack) that may take the place of a Spyderco Ladybug (SE sheepsfoot) on my house/car key ring. Not sure about that one yet for weight reasons.
At work , a Victorinox Spirit or Swisstool ,at play a Leatherman Skeletool CX. All others are unemployed !
I still carry an all black Gerber Multi Plier my father gave me 15 years ago. It is well broken in but serves my needs
I have a Leatherman PST the original design. My first multi-tool.
I still love it.
