I have a leatherman wave, which I wear every day across all the primary schools I work in. I have "trained" my self to press the pouch in every time I leave a room I've used it in just to be 100% safe.
I've had a couple of people question it but normally once they see the knife is one part of it they don't really see it as an issue.
I'd be lost without it, especially after I got the extra screw driver bits for it, its now got all the hexagonal and torx bits as well a few sizes of phillips and flat.

I just covered my eyes and handed over my credit card! I had to restrain myself from getting the carbon fibre one!

It is a lock knife. I don't carry it around because I'd have to trek back to the office and drop it off if I want to nip into town, since that would fall outside of "private property*/to-from work/good excuse" reasons. It's also because it's not as rounded as the Juice and destroys pockets quickly.

Can't say that I've ever needed any sort of multitool in the 17years I've worked in schools.

I had mine from my Army days (Bought Cheaply in an American PX in Sarajevo!) Always had it on my belt then so when i left I carried on wearing it in work, until someone pointed out that I couldn't. It didn't bother me I just ended up removing/swapping kit out and fixing it in dedicated workspace.

I'm pondering this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENJn...layer_embedded seems highly practical!
The bolt override and detonator insertion tool especially useful.

I have a leatherman squirt that is on a lanyard. I've used it for a wide range of tasks, including extracting a broken brace from a kid's mouth.

I'd be concerned about carrying one on your belt, not for safety but because it looks ridiculous!

It's in my pocket, the lanyard is to stop it falling out and getting into the wrong hands

Was a general comment at those who said they carried them on their belts

I visualised that the majority on this forum goes to work looking like an extra from 3rd Rock from the Sun anyway, so a leatherman on the belt would be pretty cool!
