Hi all, Im looking for a solid, reliable, handy multi-tool. Two main purposes are all around tool and firefighter/paramedic work. Ive liked the Leatherman wave and the Charge TTI. Anyone have any experience with these two? Thanks for the info and any other suggestions. Btw, price range is around 100$ (the charge was 99$ on ebay)

I have used a Wave for a number of years now and am really taken with it. Sure works for me. This place http://www.all-leatherman-tools-4-less.com/index.html
has them for about $60.00 and just can't be beat for price on the web.

I carred a wave for several years and loved it , i got gifted with a larger leatherman that i carry now , but mainly for the torque on the pliers . The locking tools on the larger model are handy , but i never really missed that feature on the wave either . So for work its the " storm or serge or whatever the hell they call that big sucker " and for weekends i still carry the wave lol .

I'm still rocking my Wave. I really like the design features of the Charge TTi but I don't feel compelled to switch. And am I the only one that can get the blades of the Wave insanely sharp? I was surprised the first time I touched mine up.

I'm a wave carrier myself. I got mine at Target last year after Christmas in a gift pack with a Stanley Coffee mug. I think it was 25 bucks on clearance. :)

Also look at the lineup of multitools from SOG. I love my powerlock EOD, the compound leverage system makes keeping a tight grip on whatever needs wrenching much easier.

Though it doesn't have an outside accessible blade.

I carry a leatherman super tool 200. It has been a great tool and served me marvelously. But when it came time to buy one for my dad (and if I was buying a new one) I got the charge xti. It is a great little knife. I like the weight and the new way they did the screwdrivers. My big beef with the waver through the years has been that the blades didn't lock. I don't carry anything that all the blades don't lock on, but that is a personal preference. I have friends who love there waves.

Maybe my wave is a newer model or something but the blades lock on it.

amazon.com seems to have the wave for less than the place referenced up in post # 2, plus amazon has free shipping.

Gerber makes the tactical looking ones and some are really neat. But if you want durable and "last a lifetime" solid then you have to look at Leatherman. They are seriously built like a tank (a tank without the maintenance haha).

I've had the Wave since it came out and have yet to see another mult-tool that I like better. They really nailed with the Wave design. My Wave replaced the Leatherman SuperTool which now rides in the glove compartment. With regards to the locking question above, the Wave has had locking tools since it first came out but only the 4 on the outside lock: both blades, saw, file, the screwdrivers and scissors on the inside do not. On the SuperTool all of the tools lock. My problem with the SuperTool,aside from having to completely open it to get any tool out, is that unlocking the tools is a pain since you have to partially open another tool to release the lock, whereas the Wave is like a liner lock for each of the locking tools and can be released with one hand. The biggest, for me, design improvement of the Wave over the SuperTool is the recurved handle so when using pliers you are squeezing against a smooth surface and not the inside handle edges. It makes using the pliers much more pleasant and lets you put more pressure on them without pain.

I have really become a SOG powerlock fanboy. I used to be a very big Leatherman afficienado, and I still like the company and the original PST design- it was slim, well made, and very functional.

At 10 years old (to the month I believe, if not it was pretty close or just over a pivot went. Leatherman did replace it with a Leatherman Blast- $50 to $60 tool. The blast is nice too, but like most Leatherman products, it has the same pivot system and will eventually wear and fail the same way- especially under hard use. It's not a matter of if, but when (of course, that when will likely be 10 or more years down the road).

The Sog Powerlock however is a beast. Like a tank, it's heavy, and you could probably pound on it all day without breaking it- it's the like the Chuck Norris of multi tools. The gear pivot takes up a lot pressure and the one hand plier opening is wicked cool and handy. The Sog also is more corrosion resistant than my Leatherman- the Leatherman developed some oxidation in the individual tool joints.

The Sog is definetely a sheath carry item. The PST could carry easily in a Carhart pocket. The sheath Sog gives you makes Leatherman current production leather sheathes look like and inferior joke.

I did find the locks on my blast just a little more solid than the Sog. However, the Sog's broke in nicely.

The other nice feature about the Sog is that the user can chamge out the tools rather than shipping the knife back for warranty. This also allows a degree of individualization with risking tool damage.

I have carried a wave for 4 years i use it daily or should i say i beat on it daily it's still going strong. The only thing i don't like about it is the wight the next multi tool i buy will be liter. I carry a small sharpener called a speedy sharp you can carry it in pocket or on your key chain. No matter what multi tool you buy it is a must have. http://www.speedysharp.net/ It sharpens, hones and does a great job sharpening serrated blades and it is easy to use.

But, after years of buying and selling through eBay, I've become very weary of them. Too many things are over-priced to begin with, and many sellers often overcharge for shipping.

Take a look here instead:

http://www.knifecenter.com/kc_new/store_store.html?ttl=Leatherman%20Wave&srch=eqCATE%20CODEdatarq%3Dlm%26eqKEYWORDdatarq%3Dwave

That's a lot cheaper than the one you looked at on eBay, and probably a more reliable company.

I've got two Leatherman tools, the names of which I don't remember (they're fairly old), but not the "wave". Still, they've held up well for years and I have no complaints.

I can get a Bargain Cave (discounted for return/factory second/ opened package) for $41 at the local Cabelas store- they have a couple of them. Actually, it probably wouldn't be a bad investment- I have a $15 discount certificate to apply as well. :)

The Wave is the best fit for me. It has the tools that I need.

Also, you're going to want to get a good belt, because like a gun - when you have it - you're going to wear it all the time. I'm not saying you have to - I'm saying you'll want to! :)

I like the way the Gerber tools fit my hand better than the others ! The one I need to get is the Legend 800 ! I want this one because i want the replacable carbide insert wire cutters ! i fish a alot and none of the other cutters can stand up to SS leader wire ! all of wire multis end up with a nick or 2 in the wire cutter blade ! wich renders then almost useless for me !

I carry on a daily basis a Leather tool that I purchased in 1996. I looked at the leatherman site and they don't make this tool any more. I guess the "fuse" is the one that is closest to what I have.

I purchased a Gerber pocket tool. What I found out is that Leatherman knows how to make a proper tool. I had to grind the Gerber screwdriver ends square. They had polished the things and rounded the edges. Leatherman screwdrivers are built right and are not prone to jump out of screw heads.

The Gerber is a more massive tool than my Leatherman, and that is what I carry when I am working on the truck. The handles on the leatherman flex more than the Gerber and are not as comfortable when clamping down.

Might have to try a SOG for a heavy duty tool after reading some of these opinions.

SOG Paratool. Small enough to be carried in a pocket like a pocket knife (Ok, a BIG pocket knife) when folded if you grind off the EZ opening lug.

When using it as pliers, the fold/unfolding action is in a different axis than the open/close action of the pliers so it doesn't try to fold up on you while you're using it. Also the handles open in such a manner that you're not squeezing on the "blade" side of the handles, you're squeezing on the backs which are more or less solid.

The blades are user-replaceable and you can adjust the opening tension if you need to.

It's very sturdy although I did finally break one after using it extensively as a hammer... :o It's now a donor for when/if I break blades.

I messed around with several multi-tools before I settled on the Paratool. Gave away the others after I found it.

I also recommend the Leatherman Wave. I've carried this thing on all sorts of adventures, primarily backwoods camping and fly-fishing, and it's been great.

It's taken more than one salt-water bath while fishing in Alaska (it's on a lanyard) and seems no worse for the wear.

I highly recommend it.

Take care,

I've got the original model of the Leatherman from when they first came out years ago. It was a groom's present I received for being in a wedding at that time in my life soon after college where all my friends were getting married. I guess the best testimony is that I've never felt the need or urge to replace it. As others have stated above, it's built like a tank.

OREGON CITY, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 14, 2004--Senior executives from leading outdoor manufacturers, retailers and
associations across the country gathered today to endorse Senator John Kerry for President and Senator John Edwards for Vice
President. They announced their endorsement at a press conference with Senator John Edwards at Clackamus Community College in
Oregon City, Oregon. "We have come together to endorse Senators Kerry and Edwards because they share our values and goals,"
said Lee Fromson, president of Seattle-based Cascade Designs, Inc., a leading manufacturer of outdoor equipment. "And we are here
today because the Great American Outdoors is in serious jeopardy and if we fail at protecting the outdoors then our businesses will
fail, our health will fail and we will leave future generations with air they can't breathe and water they can't drink."

Remarks by Senator John Edwards and Cascade Design's Lee Fromson carried common themes:

We must clean up the air we breathe and the water we drink or the health of all Americans will suffer We must provide more venues
and opportunities for outdoor recreation for the 150 million Americans who actively enjoy outdoor recreation We must treasure our
national parks for recreation and not the industries that mine them for treasure We must lower health care costs to stay in business.
This is true for all businesses not just our own. "Our national parks are severely under-funded resulting in rampant understaffing, site
closures, eliminated visitor education programs, neglected cultural and natural resource preservation and unsafe trails," said Peter
Bragdon, vice president and general counsel of Columbia Sportswear. "Protecting our parks and open space is essential to the
health of my business, the outdoor industry at large and to the many States whose economies depend upon tourism and recreation,
not to mention the millions upon millions of Americans who enjoy the Great American Outdoors each year."

"Health care is the hardest decision I have to make each year as a business owner," said Paul Fish, president of Mountain Gear in
Spokane, WA. "I want to provide my employees and their families with quality care but the cost of doing so weakens the very
business we are trying to build together."

Executives attending today's event included: Lee Fromson, president, Cascade Designs, Inc.(Seattle, WA); Peter Bragden, vice
president, general counsel, Columbia Sportswear (Portland, Oregon); Menno Van Wyk, CEO Montrail (Seattle, WA); Paul Fish, president
Mountain Gear (Spokane, WA); Carn Nielsen, vice president, Mountain Gear (Spokane, WA); Dan Nordstrom, CEO Outdoor Research
(Seattle, WA); Jeff Bowman, vice president, Cascade Designs, Inc. (Seattle, WA); Doug Phillips, president, Metolius Climbing (Bend,
OR); Tim Leatherman, president, Leatherman Tool Group, Inc. (Portland, OR); Dunham Gooding, president, American Alpine Institute,
Ltd (Bellingham, WA); Brian Bennett, national accounts manager, Patagonia (Ventura, CA)

Outdoor businesses depend on abundant and available recreation opportunities so their customers can enjoy outdoor activities. In
return, outdoor businesses employ over a million Americans, contribute $18 billion to the U.S. economy and work closely together to
promote an active and healthy lifestyle to the 149 million Americans who enjoy the great American outdoors.

September 14, 2004

Dear Fellow Americans:

We are business leaders in the outdoor industry and we have come together because we can no longer be silent. Outdoor
businesses depend on abundant and available recreation opportunities so our customers can enjoy outdoor activities. In return,
outdoor businesses employ over a million Americans, contribute $18 billion to the U.S. economy and work together to promote an
active and healthy lifestyle to the 149 million Americans who love the great American outdoors.

In our opinion increasing the number of venues for active outdoor recreation, staunchly protecting the environment, bolstering
recreation and conservation funding to our public land agencies and reducing health care costs go hand-in-hand. They are essential
for the health and well being of the outdoor industry and its customers.

Senators John Kerry and John Edwards share our values and goals. They know that promoting active outdoor recreation promotes
good health. They know that proactively protecting and supporting public lands for recreational use means future generations will
enjoy them too. They know that improving the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink is not negotiable for any industry
or business in America. They know that health care costs will continue to increase unless we are united in reducing obesity in
America.

John Kerry and John Edwards are committed to preserving our national parks for the benefit of current and future generations.
President Bush has promoted policies that break that commitment and endanger the future sustainability of our national parks.
President Bush's policies have severely under-funded our national parks resulting in rampant understaffing, site closures, elimination
of visitor education programs and neglected cultural and natural resource preservation, demonstrating indifference towards unsafe
trails, unclear facilities and the growing shortage of safety staff.

As importantly, the Bush administration has rolled back basic environmental protections that undermine parks including:

Rolling back Clean Air Act requirements that ensure visibility and healthy visits to our national parks; Eliminating federal protections
for our public lands that will allow mining, logging and development in national forests; Slashing the Land and Water Conservation
Fund, which enables the National Park Service to acquire new land and protect and enhance existing parks facilities. In contrast John
Kerry and John Edwards have a plan to protect the scenic landscapes and vistas for the appreciation of future generations through
rigorous enforcement of clean air and water regulations and will preserve the resources that embody our cultural heritage through
committed funding for parks operations by:

Increasing the operating budget of the National Park Service by $600 million will put our parks back on the path toward recovery and
restoration. We will pay for this important objective by modernizing the sale of mineral rights and using the revenue generated to
increase the operating budgets of our national parks. We know that Senator Kerry is a champion on the environmental issues that
are central to our industry and customers. We also believe that Senator Kerry's economic and health care policies will keep our
businesses competitive and health care affordable.

Therefore, we the undersigned are proud to endorse Senator Kerry as the next President of the United States.

Sincerely,

Lee Fromson, president, Cascade Designs (Seattle, WA)

just an update...I received my charge TTI yesterday and have been playing with it since. It seems to be very well put together. Simple, strong, and durable as well. All of the tools lock out nice and strong and the ergonomics are nice. Lastly, the S30V blade seems to be worth the extra dough as it is strong and sharp as heck. P.S the Titanium handles are solid as well. I feel good about this purchase!

Between an election with an antigunner like Kerry and an antigunner like Bush it not much of a choice really. Therefore I don't let it really bother me much. There hasn't been a pro gun president since the 60s.

The leatherman multitools are really nice and I could do with picking one up in the future, but right now I only do light work with a Gerber 600 series and that more than does everything I need it too.

Doug S
December 28, 2007, 02:47 AM
I have several Leatherman Waves (like the old model better), a SOG Powerlock, and a Leatherman Crunch. I've also owned a couple of Gerbers (which I have since lost), back when they were still American made. I like them all. The SOG is probably the most "real" tool-like multi-tool of the bunch. The Leathermans are all nicely made, and highly functional. The crunch is more of a niche tool, a lot more useful than regular needlenose, if in fact you happen to need a locking plier, but not generally as useful as the regular needlenose for everyday use.

What I've been carrying since Christmas, and I'm surprised at how much I like it is a Victorinox Swiss Champ Pocket knife. It has all of the tools that I like, in an easier to carry package. The pliers don't compare to a regular multi-tool, but for EDC I think they'll suffice for most purposes that I'd use a plier for (not to mention that it just has a little more "class" than a regular multi-tool:neener:). Other than the fish scaler and corkscrew, I think it has a good tool set, and even the fish scaler has a useful ruler on it, and the corkscrew contains an eyeglass screwdriver (making them both at least semi useful). I also find the magnifying glass, and the ink pen a lot more useful than I originally thought.

You can't beat a Leatherman. I had one of the older models forever and a day or two. I ended up breaking the screwdriver after about 10-12 years of hard use. I sent them an email 'splaining what happened. They gave me an address to ship it to to repair it. About 4 weeks later I got a new Leatherman Blast in the mail with a letter apologizing that they couldn't/wouldn't repair the original one I had and hoped that the Blast would be fine and dandy.

I've been using the Blast for about a year now with no complaints, except for the little precision screwdriver, it aggravates me when I need to change from Phillips to flathead.

Leatherman tools carry a 25 year unconditional warranty from what I was told.

I had a Gerber(don't remember which model) with a lifetime warranty. I snapped the knife blade on it and contacted them to send it in. I was told that it wouldn't be repaired or replaced without the original receipt. I paid about 75 bucks for it. Luckily, since I broke it at work, the supervisor had it sent in on their dime. I stuck it in a drawer somewhere and use the Leatherman exclusively now.

My 2 cents.
