Leatherman Wave Multi-Tool
Great multi tool
Owned the Surge forst. Here is my review on that:
"All in all a great multi tool! I have used a few different models and this one is the best so far. Very functional, accessible, and user friendly. Blades keep an edge and are very sharp. The only slight drawback (and the reason for the 4 star rating) is the leather sheath. It shows wear easily, is stiff, and is kind of a chore to put a webbed belt through. However, leatherman offers a nylon sheath for the Surge on their website. Probably a good investment."
The Wave brings the same great tool as the Surge minus the leather punch. The Wave also weighs less than the Surge which is a big plus for me.

Eat your heart out McGyver!
I have owned several mutl-tools in the past and none have performed quiet like my Leatherman Wave. I never leave home without it. From work to the woods to the water this tool has been a much appreciated addition to my pack. Just the other day a wire came loose in my buddies trolling motor and without the trusty wave we might have packed it in for the day. I have to say, the tool I use the most has to be the scissors. Absolutely remarkable that these little scissors can stay sharp for so long. If men carried purses this would be the only thing in mine.

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.

IF YOU WANT A MULTI TOOL THE ONLY KIND TO GET IS A LEATHERMAN. WHAT KIND IS UP TO YOUR NEEDS. I HAVE HAD 2 THE ORIGINAL THAT I LOST AND A WAVE I STILL HAVE. MY FRIENDS HAVE HAD ALL OF THEM INCLUDEING LEATHERMAN AND THE OTHER ONES ARE NOT AS GOOD.
