When the wifey got a new rig the last year a Subaru no less I upgraded her multitool to a Charge Ti from the 30 year old Gerber that she was using. The newer model is mucho better with repaceable cutters in the plyer side.

Every time I'm in the passenger side she wants to see her Leatherman to make sure I haven't switched it.

Had a Gerber for a long time that I was perfectly happy with. Finally left it at the range one day and it found a happy new home. Replaced it with a Wave on sale at a good price a couple weeks later.

I'm more upset about the Rat 1 in D2 I dropped somewhere last week. Great EDC knife. Can't find one anywhere. AUS 8 yes. D2 no.

These days i buy older used keatherman tools off ebay. For me, the vehicles, the wife and kids. Leatheman tools for all is doable if you get them for 1/3 retail.

My preference is the old supertool. Once rewired a uhaul car hauler trailer with one outside atlanta.

I carry the old Wave when I am climbing or out in the woods. If I'm working at a job site I usually have a Crunch.

That's what I say. I wonder how people make it without a Gerber etc., a knife, and a small crescent wrench on their person at all times

Victorinox Swiss Tool for me. I have a couple of leathermans and a SOG paratool floating about as well, but the Vicky gets by far the most use.

I use a Skeletool. Pliers, two screw driver heads, and a decent blade on the outside. For cattle branding it is all I need to castrate, change bent needles, and tighten loose screws.

I have some others too. An old Super Tool, a Surge, and a Gerber of some kind. The Skeletool is, for me, the best for what I do.

One can feel the love for Leatherman tools, however, thanks for the other suggestions.
