what is the best multi tool to buy????
i have had a leatherman and the gerber before, both are good but what is the best??????
Leatherman charge features one hand operation and it,s not the only one in the range. my Wave also has the little cutout on the back edge of the blade which allows you to hook your thumb in and open the standard and serated blades.
I have three of these exellent tools and when my blades got blunt on my wave, awesome tools replaced and sorted everything that was iether blunt or whatever and gave it back serviced and at no cost. I,m not sure if Gerber offers the same warranty but I,ve used leatherman tools for many years and I,m fiercely loyal given the exellent quality and backup.
You could say I,ve tested these tools to the max and they keep saving my bacon. I once sawed a door 100mm shorter with my leatherman much to the amazement of onlookers one late night on site.
If you own a leatherman then you get to be the hero when someones car breaks down or when nobody remembered the can opener or the bottle opener or when the braai grid breaks at the camp site and you are the main man with the pliers.
Have I made my point, BUY A LEATHERMAN!!!!!!!!!
thanks guys i have had both the leatherman and the gerber both were very good but i lost them both before the blades went blunt, so when i get this one i hope theat i dont loose it.
i realised last week at the show that with my tool box stolen i was up the creek with out a screw driver. i carry a knife in my pocket but that does not help if you need a screw driver or pliers.
Yup, I also looked at the Buck X-Tract on the www when it was launched and thought it would be a nice alternative to what everyone else has got.
At $50 + postage from the official www.buckknives.com it could still work out less than some of the top-of-the-range Leathermans or Gerbers. Could probably source it for cheaper from somewhere else - donno if Buck's got local agents...
Looks like this:
