Leatherman Wingman Multi-Tool
Just what I was looking for...
This was the multi-tool that I was looking for. It is compact yet has enough features to make one feel fully prepared. I love the frame-locking blade on the outside that can be opened one handed. One modification I made by adding a 550 para chord lanyard tied through the hole beneath the scissors. Most of the time I am using this tool I am either in the floors or ceilings of buildings running wires or in a boat on the water. I like having the lanyard to prevent losing the tool.
The tool is compact enough that I routinely wear it clipped to the inside waist band right behind my right hip-bone. Worn in this way, it is easily accessible as well as out of the way of keys and coins that one might keep in a hip pocket. It is also the only way to keep it on you when wearing flimsy dress pants...something my job often calls for.
I recently took it camping and used it for everything from starting the fire (with a flint fire starter sold separately) to opening the can of beans.
5 stars also for the price. Did not have to break the piggy bank for this one and it is "name brand!"

Leatherman is theBest Multi Tool Out There
I purchased a Leatherman for my husband years ago. He used it almost everyday, on something, it was so handy! Never had a single problem with it. Then he lost it. When Bass Pro Shop had this Leatherman Wingman Multi-Tool on sale. I bought 4, one for my husband, one for my son, one for my son in law, and one for a birthday gift for a family friend. They all love them, and use them all of the time. They always carry them with them, and when there's something that comes up where they don't have their tools with them this works GREAT! Never had any problems with any of the Leatherman's we purchased and am sure we will purchase more in the future. They are super high quality and have lasted us forever. Wouldn't buy anything else.

a great film tool!
I am a videographer and often find myself in situations where tool kits are fairly inaccessible. I picked this little guy up to always have the basics with me. It is a little bit bigger than my usual pocket knife that I carry but packs everything that I need to do minor maintenance on my cameras and support gear. Very Pleased.
It gets 4 stars because I noticed that after my last shoot in on the coast Northern California, a small amount of rust has appeared on the blade. not a huge deal.

Simply put I am happy with this product. I have only used it a little bit (the package opener works great) but overall I am pleased with the quality and the price. All of the pivots are firm and there is not play in any of the tools. I have not owned it long enough to comment on the durability.
