I have a Leatherman MUT, and have been very happy with it.

Just thought I'd post this. As of this moment, the Victorinox Spirit X multitool is on sale on Amazon for about $46 bucks.

If you look for the one priced at $55.xx, they apply a $10 bonus on checkout (and make sure to check the 'free shipping' option). Total comes to $45xx but doesn't ship until early August. So... if you're not in a killer hurry and are looking for this MT, it's a good time.

I have no idea how long this promotion will last, though. But it's good as of Mon, Jun 18, at 5PM central time.

I saw that too but I have to tell you, the whole "give us your money now and we promise to ship the item to you sometime in the indefinite future" really left me cold. It almost sounds like some importer is trying to raise the capital to put in a big enough order to get some reduced per unit cost. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but unless it's an about to be released book, DVD or computer game, this business of paying for something that isn't available yet just sort of feels odd. YMMV.

I just scored a leatherman for free. It was in the lost & found at work. Been there awhile so I was allowed to claim it. I'm assuming it's a first gen as it isn't marked with a model name. Just says leatherman tool. Anyone know what it is?

You're probably right; it's either the original PST or an early PSTII that was not marked as such. Do the blades lock open? Does it have an awl? If you open the handles, pull out the tools, and look inside do you see a date stamp (MMYY)?

I started out with the Victorinox Swiss Tool. I really enjoyed it until one of the locking blades overextended against the locking mechanism while I was cutting boxes. The new wiggle on a formerly solid blade, plus the ergonomics, made me seek something different. The handles were overly blocky, and pretty uncomfortable for extended use. Besides that, it's a great tool.

I used the Gerber Diesel for about a year; I have had nothing but positive experiences with their Paraframe folder (which I EDC) and Big Rock fixed (which rides in my GHB), so I decided to invest in a Diesel. The two-dimensional phillips head screwdriver is the weakest performer. Besides that, the Diesel did everything else I needed it to do.

I've since misplaced it, and have an MP 600 on the way. I'm not totally sold on the carbide cutters, but I'm willing to have my mind changed.

One pattern I've noticed in myself and sometimes in others; I get a multi-tool, find that it does 95% of what I need it to do, and can't quite let that 5% go. I'm trying to accept this as the nature of the beast. A multi-tool is designed to save you a trip to your toolbox, not replace it.

I got a leatherman rev for my 2016 Secret Santa. I never bought a quality multitool and I love it. Now I see why they are popular.

I have a Leatherman Wave. Gift from a friend. Lovely piece of gear, I NEVER leave the house without it, and when I do, I feel like I am not complete. Used to carry a flip open blade, but now the Wave is the standard

Wave for sure, but I also have a Gerber (cant remember the name). Wave feels better and had more blades including an awesome file which I used to reshape a hatchet. However the Gerber has a better action. I like the slide out action of the pliers can be done with one hand, whereas the Wave cannot.

I just received the Wave as a birthday gift. It's definitely nicer than the Leatherman Wingman that I currently have. But it ought to be for three times the price.

I certainly won't be getting rid of the Wingman, it's now been transferred to my post-apocalyptic MacGyver kit. And while I haven't done any comparative test-cutting yet, the scissors on the Wingman just might be nicer than those on the Wave.

For my purposes at least, the Wave is the perfect combination of features, weight, size, build quality and overall design. If you can afford it, that's the one to get. But my advice to anyone on a budget is to consider the Leatherman Wingman (or the similarly priced Sidekick); they're outstanding values.

The Wave is pretty awesome. It's their best-seller for a reason.

They also make a tool called the Charge. It's basically a Wave with different handle and blade materials that provide more comfortable handles and a better cutting edge, but naturally jacks up the price again.
