    Over the years I have built up a little collection of Leatherman multi-tools. It all started when I was about 18 and a friend of mine bought me my first Leatherman, not sure which model it is but I've had it for about 13 years. About 7 or 8 years ago when my dad and I had our own vending machine business I got a Leatherman Charge. And in the time we owned the business the charge has been indispencible. It was there for me when I had to open up cases of product for my machines or if I needed a tool for machine maintenance the Charge is a valuable tool. Then 2 years ago I got a Leatherman wingman. My first reaction was that this was a great tool, but after some use of the Wingman there were some things I do not like about it. Although it is a very useful tool, I don't like how the flat head and Phillips head screwdrivers were chromed. The chrome might make it look cool but when in use the chrome screwdrivers make it hard to keep from slipping, the rest of the tools were very handy to have. The next Leatherman on my list is a Juice Xe6 I would just like to have something nice and neat to carry in the pocket. And I have to confess I also have my eye on the Leatherman OHT. I would be very interested in hearing what you like to carry.

    My favorite is my old P4 for sentimental reasons. I also love the Juice line.

    Keychain: either the Squirt PS4 or the indestructible Micra; switch 'em when the whim strikes. Small kit in Jeep's center console: Juice. Larger vehicle kit: 17-year-old Super Tool. Sitting on the shelf: NIB Super Tool 300. On to-buy list for something more substantial than Squirt/Micra in pocket: Skeletool CX.

    My fist LM is a Surge (provided by my employer), Very heavy, but also packed. (I have the extra-deluxe bit set and the pocket clip for it as well.)

    I found a Micra that now lives on my keychain. I plan on removing the blade so that it is TSA friendly.

    But my favorite is my Skeletool in red with a serrated blade. As above, just what I need most of the time, no more, and very light.

    I have my eye on a MUTT...

    Tough question. Over many years I have gone through a number of them, keeping only a few that suited me. These are a Super Tool 300, Charge Tti, Rebar, Juice S2, Style CS, Style PS and Micra, each filling a particular niche. I would have to say my favorite Leatherman is the one I have with me at a given time. If I could keep only one, it would have to be the Charge, but only because I have a modded awl for it. That means enough to me that if I couldn't have it awl ;) , I would go with the ST300 instead, or maybe the Rebar, depending on how well it holds up to serious use. I haven't had it long enough to really wring it out, as yet.

    But I like them all and glad I don't have to make those choices.

    My favorite would have be the Juice XE6. No good reason other than it is my first and only Leatherman ... so far.
    Actually it's my first and only multi-tool unless my SAK Rucksack counts.
    The SAK rocks BTW!

    I got a wave in '99, which has been round the world with me and saved the day a lot, but I retired it a bit ago for work, as I was frightened of damaging it. It has sentimental value because I've had it so long!

    I replaced it with a MUT, which jut destroys anything you put it to. It's a really strong tool. I bought a PS4 at the same time for my keys, and that gets used a good bit too.

    Next in line is also a juice XE6, style PS, skeletool, but only when I can justify their purchase! "because I want them" is not an option at the moment :p
