My fave is the Leatherman Wave, didnt like any others till this tool came along

Leatherman super tool. Had 3. Lost one, gave one away to a good friend and still have the third. Speaking as a mechanic, it is the greatest thing since video porn.

I had both a Gerber and a Leatherman and the Gerber sucks. Leatherman all the way.

My Victorinox Swisstool kicks ass.

I have a Schrade, two Leathermans (Pulse and PST) and two Gerbers and two cheap chinese ripoffs I keep in the ashtrays of the vehicles. The old Gerber isn't so hot, the new ones are nice. I'd take any of the ones I have. Lately my favorite is the Pulse but that might change next week. Even the chinese junk ones are hella lot better than nothing.

One of the main reasons I have one. One-handed operation is very convenient, and I have had to use that feature on more than one occasion.

Same here. Just modified a hacksaw blade to fit in the extra spot, works like a champ. Been on my belt every day for the past two years.

Thanks for the replys, I may just get one of each of the Gerber and SOG and compare them with some daily use and abuse.

I have two, a SOG Paratool and a Leatherman. Both have distinct conveniences, but IMHO, the Leatherman is a better and more functional device. The Paratool looks like it IS built to survive a war, but I've had the jaws of the pliers fold closed on me a couple of times (pain in the ass, not to mention the fingers!). I do, however, have two SOG lockblades that I wouldn't trade for ANYTHING.
