    I personally prefer the leatherman tools where the blades are on the outside of the handle (wave, charge, surge etc) as the blades can be used and put away with less faff and with practice one handed.


    The way the super tool etc work is you need to open the tool part extract another tool to release the lock to then retract the open tool, after forgetting mine one weekend away and having to use an original PST I missed the ease of use of my Charge TTi

    I love my Cybertool http://www.victorinox.com/ch/product...ol-41/1.7775.T . It has done some serious hard work over the years and is still in great shape.

    I have to admit, if I leave home for work without my Leatherman (Blast), I feel like I've had a limb removed..heh. Not had to consult the (naff) IT toolkit since my missus bought that for me.

    i feel a sudden need for a multitool thanks to this thread!

    I already carry a slipjoint knife and i have one of my own forged bottle openers on the keyring so i'd be looking at pliers and screwdrivers as primary functions, tips on best model?

    Thats why I dont use the lovely multi tool that I had here last year in our secret santa, too much of a headache/minefield, should I leave it anywhere

    Even more so if you have a leatherman on your belt, don't forget that you should be carrying a leatherman or similar tool with a blade whilst not at work or without having godo reason to be carrying it.

    The monkey has no sharp blades, ok yes it does have a section on it which they've designed for "slipping" locks but that isn't going to work with most uk doors.

    Being stopped in a shopping centre and arrested for carrying one would not be fun and you can't say "oh I forgot I had it or I need it for work" as you're not at work or travelling to work.

    I don’t think I would be allowed to carry a Leatherman for work purposes anyway + I would be too worried about leaving it somewhere and it being acquired by students
