So I broke my smith and wesson M&P assisted opening pocket knife. I’m looking to replace it with a decent multi tool. I don’t want to break the bank. My only requirements are easy opening and I can access the tools without opening it up. What are are you recommendations?
whats required on the tool?
Pliers of course. Preferably needle nose with replaceable cutters. I’m a welder So I would use them to clear out my nozzle. Other than that a good blade that Preferably locks.
I love mine Gerber Suspension Multi-Tool
Spring loaded when opened. Tool access without opening pliers, solid tools, good sheath, tools lock into position on open and closed.
I carry a Leatherman Charge Ti every day.
Leatherman Mut EOD has narrow plier tips, and replaceable cutter heads.
accessories to go with em
I like that style of tool. Haven’t seen it before.
they sell the bit kit for it as well with extension. and the sheath which you can also buy separate is a perfect fit for a FN 5.7 magazine. made sturdy as well…
I broke the C4 punch on my very first one. over 10years ago now, doing something stupid.I was out in portland working a job, so i walked into one of their stores to get it fixed, expecting to pay, i handed it to the girl, she looked at it and handed me a brand new tool. free. i was shocked.
Leatherman has a outstanding warranty. just remember if its not in your hand put it in the sheath. they tend to walk away if you leave them layin around.
Leatherman is hard to beat for multi tool. Ive had a couple gerbers that where good. But i get the most miles out of a leatherman. I like the tools on inside of mine so when you pull the tool your needing out and fold handle back up it acts as a safety to keep tools from closing on fingers.
@GOBLIN Now That’s Funny’ I was down in Portland/Beverton for Porsche Training 20 years ago’ they were across the Street
Had broken Needle Nose Pliers Replaced on the Spot No Charge’ I was Impressed had them since the 1st X Wife.
+1 for the leatherman mut. That thing kicks ass. But don’t let it out of your sight lol.
More reliable and longer lasting.
after 2 X wives i still got and ride the same 1975 shovelhead Harley Lot less maintenance.
I did not know that anyone was making a Titanium Multitool that is very Cool! I love Titanium Tool every time County Comm comes out with a new Ti Tool I usually get it!
My suggestion would be the SOG PowerLock EOD Multi Tool
Gerber MP600 Multi Tool Needlenose Black
I have both of this Multi Tool and I am really hard on Multi tools I have broken Countless Leathermans but this two models seem to be build strong enough to take the ABUSE I give them. The ONE Thing I love about the SOG is the I was able to Purchase Different Blades from SOG and Configured the Multi-Tool MY WAY which is a MAJOR Improvement over every other brand!!! I received the SOG as a Gift from my wife not sure who told her to get it but who ever did gave her great info. The one thing I will say that might be a Deal Killer about the SOG is that it is a Little HEAVY because it is make of all STAINLESS STEEL I have the Silver one not the Black one that is probably why I have not LOST IT and mine came with a very nice Retro Leather Sheath!
Leatherman. I use a “Surge” daily. Wal-mart used to have them for 80 bucks. You can get them direct for 100 or so on sale. Just look around. I saw a Leatherman at my local Lowe’s not long ago, but I don’t recall which specific one for about 85 bucks or so. Most of them have 2 locking blades (1 serrated and 1 normal), and except for the older models or the ones for specific occupations, they almost all have replaceable cutting edges in the pliers.
Ended up with a SOG Power lock with the kydex holster. Got it on sale for 40.00. Been working good so far. Just wish the kydex holster held the bits for it.
