    Is a multi-tool worth the weight on a hiking / camping trip? The first answer would be yes. After all you never know when you may need a pair of pliers for something. Then again, I am 52 years old, been hiking, camping, hunting.... for decades and have only used a multi-tool a handful of...

    So my friends keep asking me what I want for Christmas and one suggested I might like an all-in-one tool. Now I'm supposed to pick the one I want. I've read about some Gerbers and Leatherman but I don't know what model would work best. I think I'd keep it in my earthquake emergency bag that's...

  5. Looking For - Want To Buy From Vendors
    First off, I really wasn't sure where to post this so just took my best guess. I'm looking for a Leatherman Squirt PS4 with pivot screws instead of rivets but no one sells them here, is to lazy to look or just can't understand the difference. Online seems to be the same. Is anyone willing to...

    Just received my Sidekick in the mail yesterday. Initial impression is this is an excellent tool for the value $31.09 shipped from Amazon.com. The tool itself, The pliers, springloaded with no wiggle room seems to be of excellent design and quality. The wire cutters are both pointed and...

    Sorry all you leatherman/Swiss army/gerber multitool survivalists cause im sure I will get heat from this, but WTF? How is it there are so many of you I see posting on the " Only One Knife To Survive " threads that you actually think you can live with only a multitool? I own a few of them, and...

    What are you guys considering the toughest MT? It would be a designated car/BOB multitool. The most important feature for me would be pliers/wire cutters. I narrowed it down to SOG Powerlock, Leatheman Super Tool 300 and Victorinox Swisstool. Is there any clear winner in that group?

    I picked up a Leatherman Wave combo pack that came with a Monarch 400 45 Lumen flashlight and a holster for them. Just $25 for BOTH at Academy Sports & Outdoors. Good prep item or for hiking etc. Get yours while they're still on sale -- Cheapest I found online for just the Monarch is $30 so...

    Someone swiped my leatherman super tool. What is everyone carrying as their multi-tool? I will probably get the supertool again, but I am open to something new. Thanks for your input. Bob.

    Ive never owned either, I have a companion multi tool, which I think is made by craftsman...replaced by the evo line if im not mistaken. I know that most people that Ive talked to have Leatherman, but which is better and why?

    Time to get some input from you guys. It is time to upgrade my kit and I am considering dropping a fair amount of money on a high quality multitool. I am looking at of course the three major manufactures: Leatherman, Gerber and SOG. The main qualifications are that it holds up under the...

    Seeing as how I abuse my knife-that is use it for literally everything BUT cutting stuff-I am wanting a multi-tool. People say the leatherman quality has gone down, But for some reason I don't hear all that muck about gerber. I know it is a great company and makes good products(I have used them...
