"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…"

"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 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…"

Mark Amey replied to Matthew's discussion Multitool Questions...
"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…"

Multitool Questions...

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'm a French press devotee myself. Best appliance I ever got for the kitchen was a hot water dispenser. It puts out near-boiling water (205 degrees), so I can just fill up the press and go to town - no heating water.  It's a…"

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More
