Leatherman Wave Multi-Tool
Leatherman wave is tops
I own or have owned at least 5 multi-tools, not counting a couple cheapos that I have been given over the years. The leatherman Wave is the one I keep coming back to. I even wear it in church, we are so inseparable. I like this one because you can access the knife blades one-handed, by dragging the blade out with your thumb. Also, the pliers do not cut your hands because the handles are rounded. You can access the pliers one-handed too, but not as easy as you can with the Gerber or the leatherman super-tool - but on those tools the knife is hard to get at, and cannot be accessed one-handed. Being able to get at a tool one-handed is important if you need to hold whatever you are going to use it on with the other hand. This tool also has scissors, that I don't use very often, but they are nice to have. I would not want to use them for a big project, though - the scissors are not the most robust tool on the multi-tool. Still it is nice to have. And there are a wide selection of different sizes of screwdrivers. The can/bottle opener is quite functional, and better than most, although I do not like it for can-opening quite as much as the really nice can opener on a Victorinox swiss army knife. All of the better multi-tools and swiss army knives have certain advantages over their competitors, (wire-cutting is better with the Gerbers) but this one is the one I wear.

Wave the only tool for me!
I would be lost without it! Most of the rest are cheaper but there is a reason for them being cheaper. I have put tremendous pressure on the pliers, twisting and gripping. They held up great. Still straight as it was when new. No, looseness and no side play! Been plenty of times my wife and I have been out and someone needs something done. She simply says to me "give me your tool"! It fits nicely with my suit and tie also. Right on the belt under my jacket!!LOL!
I carry it every where but to the airport!

The leatherman wave is got to be by far the best multi tool on the market i have owned one for about five years i use it for every thing my wife tells every one i would be lost with out it. i even used it to save some ones life a person i know got trapped with a seat belt strap around their neck i used the serrated blade to cut the strap not to many knife blades can do that

I've carried Leatherman on my belt for around 20 plus years. The only reason I bought this one is because I was stupid and left my old one so it could be stolen. Immediately bought this new wave and I'm sure it will last me another 20 plus years. Never off my belt and use it all the time. Even had a custom holster made for it in Mexico.
