"I own all kinds of Leatherman tools, but the SAK Super-Tinker is what lives in my pocket every day, along with a dedicated folder. I'd suggest saving up a bit and buying quality from the get-go, and from a company that really stands behind…"
"I'll vouch for the Leatherman Wingman as well. Durable, affordable, and well-equipped without being too cumbersome. If you need a basic multi-tool that doesn't get too specific, but will handle most day-to-day needs - this is…"
"I carry a Craftsman mini ...
It's about 2" long, total. I chose it primarily because it's small for easy pocket carry ... and because it has snips rather than pliers. I don't use pliers quite often enough to need…"
"Watch this video:
And if you are thinking of buying an MT, look up this guy. Chances are he reviewed it in depth, and compared it to others. Same goes with all kinds of other knifes you might…"
"I too have the leatherman wave for work and it's awesome. So handy. The serrated knife is a beast. I also have the set of the extra hex bits to go with it, all sizes of philips/flathead/allen key/star bits. Ive never noticed that it doesnt have…"
" Like everything else, you need to define what you need.
I had one of the original Leatherman tools, and for what I was doing, it worked excellently.
For what I'm doing now, my Leatherman Wave is sufficient, with one minor glitch. It…"
"I received a leatherman Wingman and when moving i had all my tools packed up or at the old house and needed to install a hand full of fixtures and the wingman was able to do everything i needed it to with out being the biggest MT. so it is easy to…"
"I carry around a Swiss Army Knife. They champion plus to be specific and I have definitely gotten good use out of it. They got all sorts of models with different sizes, just browse around at the models and see what you like. Amazon has a great…"
"As someone who works with military-spec rifles from time to time, I've become quite fond of the Leatherman MUT. It's got blades that you can open without opening the entire tool(much like the Surge or Wave), a punch for rifle takedown…"
"I have the Swiss Army multitool (one of the bells and whistles ones). The pliers and wire cutters are very high quality, rivalling the very best. Two knives, multiple screwdrivers, and, of course, a bottle opener. I have even used the saw to cut…"
"I have a Gerber Suspension and it is great. Gerber products are reasonably priced and have never failed me. A feature I like it that it has a small lanyard ring that can be folded into the handle if not needed. This is not the fanciest multitool or…"
Not sure if this was ever discussed on the blog but, I am interested in purchasing a multitool. I realize there are a plethora of options available and so I was wondering what other guys thought make a good one? Or more specifically maybe my question should be what should I ask myself when selecting one? Also on that note, I'd like to hear from others who may have bought all the bells and whistles and then found out they could have bought something a lot more practical. Does anyone find…See More
"I had a recent revelation whilst polishing my shoes recently. I used my normal polish with brushes and slightly damp cloth as per normal, then like a mad fool I decided to experiment. I then brushed and buffed my shoes with a microfibre cloth. My…"
We found two interesting items hidden in the hollow of the clock when we lifted it from the attic: a nearly spent bottle of my grandfather's whisky and a draw-string tobacco pouch which hung from one of the tines containing a note penciled in my grandmother's rhumatoid cursive which read, "Died March 4, 1951." Black and White Scotch was the drink my Father introduced to my maternal Grandfather upon our return to the United States from Great Britain in 1963. Once my Dad had a shot of this, there…See More
"The DoD and the Rand Corporation have both done their own estimates. I do not know the methodology for how they decided who counted under each term. The Rand corp's numbers are about half what the DoD reported. Here is a link to their…"
