    I need a multi tool

    I am in the market for a multi tool. I have a EDC knife however pliers and such would come in handy. I am looking for something fairly light. I need a multi tool with pliers, a knife blade, and philips and flat head screw drivers. Everything other then that is more or less fluff. Having a pocket clip would be a big bonus. Any suggestions?

    If you only need something small, Swisstech is a really good choice:
    Swiss+Tech - Multi-Tool Key Ring Products

    If you are looking normal size, Leatherman has many options that are lighter than most and are good quality.

    For Multi-tools I Like Gerber (about 12 models) or SOG Paratool.

    I own all and use them.

    Someone gives me a knock-off version least once a year. I give them away because I know that they will break the first time.

    Good Multi-tools are no longer cheap and nothing like might you might buy at Walmart.

    Call me if you want a quality multi-tool.

    Leatherman Super Tool. Only drawback is that it weighs about the same as a full Glock mag.

    I've broke a couple of Gerbers, had good luck with my Leathermans, I prefer the Wave model. I've heard nothing but good things about the SOG and if anything happens to my Leatherman, I'd probably go the SOG route.

    I use the Leatherman Skeletool, just the basics and fairly light.

    Gerber "Diesel" multiplier is the only one I have. Really can't compare it to any of the others. I do like mine alot.

    Leatherman is probaly the leader but Gerber and SOG make some good ones to, shop on-line till you find the one with the options you want then go buy it.

    Several years ago I got into a multitool "frenzy" and purchased a bunch of different tools in my personal quest for the "perfect" tool. Never found the "perfect" tool but in my experience the pick of the litter was that Leatherman Wave. I still carry the Wave and the rest are in storeage.

    My wife bought me a Leatherman Wave a couple years ago. It's a great piece of equipment. Tough as nails. I am a truck driver and I keep it in my duffle bag. I've repaired quite a few things on the road with it.

    Love my SOG assisted multi tool. I now keep one in each vehicle and my range bag.. They are well worth the cost

    Leatherman Wave absolutely. Gerbers are OK but I've broken them also. My Leatherman gets used every day and it holds up well to the abuse.

    I carry a Leatherman Skeletool everyday. I like it, it's light, has just the basic stuff and a clip, so you don't need a sheath on your belt.
