    Which Pocket multi tool would you prefer?

    Hey all sorry if this is on here already somewhere. Mods move or cancel if necessary.


    Which pocket size multi tool would you carry? I am a huge SOG fan and carry the larger powerlock. I have been looking at the pocket powerplier as an edc tool in place of the large one. Its the same tool just smaller dimensions and 4 oz lighter. I really like that idea. But thats me. Anyone else have an opinion. I have also looked at the juice s2 and cs4(?) both are pretty nice but don't have compound leverage and the weight is about the same as the SOG. Anyway let the talks begin . Thanks

    I have had the Leatherman and the Gerber Multitool.

    I prefer the Gerber.

    Bob are you following me from thead to thread lol.

    I have little experience with the gerbers except the one that my buddy gave me that broke as an example for my store and all the stories of gerbers breaking. The ones I have seen are nice for light duty work.

    I also like the Gerbers. I have several of the 'diesel' & one called the 'Freehand'. The reason I like them is they are very strong & open with ONE HAND!

    My Leatherman Wave has been EDC since 2004, I got it after beating 3 other multi-tools between 2002 and 2004; the Leatherman had a 25 year warranty so I figured I' have a little recourse if I broke it; well I've tried many times, it needs the blades sharpened about once a year and that's it. I had an issue with a Gerber lockblade both not staying locked and closing up on my hand (not good!) so I've shied away from them ever since.

    Gerbers has work for me. I got my first one in the early 90's. It still works and seem to be made better than the newer ones.

    I also use a Schrade and have been carrying it for years. The tool has held up well, even though the belt pouch only lasted one year.

    I am a farmer and I have carried the Leatherman Wave for a long, long time. I have really abused this tool by using it daily for farm chores. Except for an occasional sharpening it just keeps on working. I vote for the Wave!

    Schrade here also. Best multi-purpose tool I've used.

    I have a Wave and a Gerber something or rather. I don't use either all that much, but the Leatherman seems a little better built.
