Title: Multitools
Post by: AJ on July 28, 2013, 09:36:32 AM
Who uses one and what kind?

Been a fan of Leatherman multitools for years. The Leatherman Wave is one my favorites.

I don't really use one. I keep one in each car just in case. Always comes in handy in an emergency.  I have the original Leatherman made in the US.

True story so dont laugh....to hard I pick up these crates and tear them apart to build stuff with. Plus I am a pack rat. They are heavy and I have to pick them up over my head to get in back of truck. One slipped and come down wedging my head between the boards. I had my Leatherman Blast with me I always carry or feel naked. It has a very aggressive saw blade. Took it from my side and sawed thru board to free my head. :embarassed:

My Grandfather made a cradle and a crib out of Maytag and Amana refrigerator pallets. I still have 2 coffee tables laminated and made from the same. The cradle and crib will be handed down to my kids.

I know the feeling. I have carried a multitool since 1988 when I started my first appliance repair job.
All the other guys I worked with had Gerber multitools so that was the brand I started out with. Then a few years later I purchased my first Leatherman and never looked back at another Gerber after that

I'm thinking about picking up a Leatherman Super-Tool 300 to try.

You talking about just the knife or their multitool?

I picked up the Leatherman Rebar at Menards this weekend.

After I started looking at the Leatherman site I remembered that I use to have one of the first Leatherman Super-Tools and the one thing I did not like about it was the size. Being 4.5 inches folded up it was a little long to carry on my belt.

The other Leathermans I have had were all just 4 inches and a bit less weight then the Leatherman Super-Tool.

After a little more research on the Leatherman site I found the Rebar. It looks like a smaller 4 inch version of the Super-Tool.

Just what I was looking for. :)
