Which is your favorite multitool and why?

Multitools are compromises. They usually aren’t the best at anything, except helping out in lots of different situations, but that is okay. That’s what they are for.

I have a Gerber multitool, whose model name I don't know, and a Leatherman Wave+. I have had the Gerber for 25 years or more, but never really used it. My reason for buying it was that it was a bargain. My reason for never using it is that it doesn’t have the tools I need.

I got the Leatherman because it had tools I saw frequent use for in my everyday life. Knife, screwdriver, wire cutters, pliers and bottle opener are the ones I use most. The reason for choosing the Leatherman brand was that they seemed reliable, both in that they use good materials, and that they come with a 25-year warranty. For me, it's important that a manufacturer believes in their products. I don't want to have to change them because they wear out too easily.

Do you have a multitool? Which one is your favorite? Why do you like that particular one?

I don't use any multitools other than my keyring which doubles up as a bottle opener haha.

All the best, Leia
