What's the best Leatherman /out/ ?

Thanks Boss.

Wave master race

Why do you need pliers and screwdrivers in the woods? Just take a knife.
For general use, Wave is based

this thing is great.

ive stated in the past my buddy me a "wingman" with my name engraved on it for being in his wedding party. it might be "the best" but i would say that or the wave is the most practical. a lot of them seem like overkill. i would feel a few at a store before picking one. the photos on the website dont capture the difference in size.

If you don't mind the larger ones, the surge is pretty awesome

Although I don't use them much, I wanted the replaceable cutters pretty bad instead of fixed cutters

not sure what your if means but ever since i got it use it to fix doors whenever i feel like the handle, nob, or hinge is too lose. its pretty gratifying fixing peoples doors for them. i even fixed the one in my office building.

i got the old skeletool cx with the serrations.
i was pretty upset at first because i heard it's a bad idea on a 154cm but it grew on me. the serrations eat plastics like crazy.

Pliers are good for fixing shit, making super-tight knots & taking out hot shit from the fire, like cup'o'tea.
Small pliers or that plier-like thing used by doctors, don't know it's eng. name, that's what some of us anons carry innawoods, instead of a multitool, next to a swiss knife.

>>1138591
Kill yourself.

>>1138591
I'd get one but that vs 3 surges thanks to European potato pricing
>>
Wave and surge are the best
Tbh one of them goes with me everywhere anyway
>>
>>1138605
Yo... you have never been in a friend's house and you go to take a piss and their bathroom door handle is all wobbly and shit? It's so satisfying to have a screwdriver in your pocket.

>Bro! I fixed your door!
>Now I'm gonna raid your fridge and make a couple sammiches
Works everytime.
>>
>>1138709
the move is to not even tell them. Just fix it and have the satisfaction of knowing the next time they go to open the door they are going to have a nice tight opening experience. Also if you spend a lot of time there it makes your life better.

blade wobbly?
>>
>>1138583
does the wave have a diamond grit on the file?
>>
>>1138583
If we're talking about outdoor use and in my case backpacking in going to have to concur with >>1139009
The rebar has everything you need, pliers for your cook pot, an awl and saw for woodwork, can opener for when you find beans left at a lean to or for booze at the trail head, and of course a knife and it's extremely lightweight
>>
>>1140751
If you need a dedicated bottle opener, then you are a completely useless tard innawoods. They're useless in an outdoors setting
>>
>>1140827
wtf is a dedicated bottle opener

"sorry guys, i left the bottle opener at home, trip's cancelled
>>
>>1139009
Yup. Outside knife is cool, but it's not worth the price difference in the wave. Rebar has all you'll probably need, weighs the least, is easy to slide into a pocket, etc... Same deal with the supertool vs. surge.
>>
>>1138583
Leatherman is a brand, not a name for multitools. If you are looking for a multitool, I suggest Victorinox.
>>
>>1140838
usually i'm the dedicated bottle opener

Wave for EDC. juice cs4 for /out/ if need pliers

victorinox is superb quality and durability but shit awful ergonomics. leatherman is still the best compromise on durability capability and ergos. well some of them.

my wife bought me a engraved Surge to replace my stolen rebar and wave. Let me tell you i could not be happier with the surge. Its great for all applications plus you and attach a full size saw blade to cut small tree limbs without bashing your fingers to hell.
>>
I've had my current Wave for more than a decade now, it's my third one. The first one is at the bottom of Lake Pleasant, the second one I broke the pliers tightening a nut, I took it to Home Depot to buy a new one and the tool dept guy took one look at it and called it a defect and just handed me another one on the spot and took the old one to send back. I use a retractable keychain lanyard when I go fishing now, I learned that lesson. The tining I like most is the locking blades and tools. It was a big improvement over the original model
