Best Multi-Tool

LasabarLasabar Posts: 4,473 ✭✭✭
I'm watching a "How do they do it?" episode on TV and they are making a swiss army knife...

Now the man in me is saying... "How come I don't have such a handy tool?"

But my question is, what is the best multipurpose tool that can be carried in a pocket (and MAYBE on a belt if it's absolutely bad azz)

Is Swiss Army the best? or Leatherman? or others?

Discuss!

    Swiss army also makes one with cigar cutters in the place of scissors.

    What's the best one without regards to cigars? Just has everything? If it has a cigar cutter that'd be okay, but I just want a bad-ace multi-tool in my pocket
  • I always carry my leatherman....only cause i cant get Mc Gyver's

    I think the best multi-tool is the one God gave you . Just look ... You can carry your underwear/towel/washcloth to the shower draped over it. It can give you entertainment/pleasure when your by yourself or with your wife/girlfriend etc. It makes zippers useful. When properly paired with a person of the opposite sex it can result in little people. As these little people grow older they are quite useful. You can put them to work to make you money. You can train them to bring you all kinds of chit you need ( beer, tv remote, magazines , shoes, pets, CIGARS and lighter , you get the idea ) They will tend to ( if they like you ) buy you stuff as they get older like birthday cards and presents, fathers day gifts, surprise cigars and other cool stuff . As they get older and join team activities like football and baseball and what not this will give you an opportunity to mingle with other dads and moms who have also used thier multi-tools to make little people ( sometimes resulting in friendships and the opportunity to smoke MORE CIGARS !!! ) Just tell me that this is not the most BAD AZZZZ Tool going hands down !!! I have officially started my birthday drinking early , hey its Friday already right ???

    Gerber. I've had numerous ones throughout the years and the one I broke I had had it for about 3 years at that point and I called and they promptly sent me a replacement and a box to ship my old one back. I still own all the ones dating back to their original series. Couldn't be happier.

    Sparky, since you joined, I've always had a faint mental stirring about your name. I was just checking up on the Glowing Spyderco on EDCF, saw the same name and finally made the connection.
    I lurk pretty hard there.

    I've always thought about getting a Leathermen Skeletool CX, and have read mostly positive reviews on it.
    Does anyone have one?

    Most multi-tools are too bulky/heavy for me to consider carrying.

    Sight, the girl is Penny Mathis. I'd like to take credit for knowing that, but I used the TinEye plugin, a pretty handy reverse image searcher.

    hah weird! It even said he's an electrician, tho I suppose that's where the nickname comes from.
    I'll let him know he needs to find a new name so I don't get confused anymore.

    I think that a knife is about as much of a multi tool as you need. It's not heavy/clumsy, they have many different uses, and usually they sit easily in you pocket.
