    Haven't been able to find it since my last motorbike run October last year. Sad

    The best multi tool is the one you have in your pocket when you need it.
    I have a few mostly cheap shit ones....most used is a sheffeild I think....cos it was cheap and I dont mind abusing it or loosing it and its small enough to fit in pocket nicely....it has saved the day many times but is all loose in the hinges and the jaws dont line up anymore and the knife is only good to cut one maybe two things then its blunt.
    The most expensive and also most robust one I have is a Kilmanjaro ballast, its still tight and good after a couple of years....I paid more than this for it usual story https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Lis...SABEgLghvD_BwE

    Its knife is not up to the standard of the big leathermans but altho a bit heaver and bulker than my cheaper ones its still a good pocket carry and is very robust.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    Pretty sure iv seen them in NZ. Love my Leatherman Wave. Pretty much goes everywhere with me. The one handed opening for the knives is mint. Only thing it needs is replaceable wire cutters and they would be perfect.

    I have the leatherman charge. The aluminum one not titanium. It is super handy. The cerated blade has a gut hook on it which I use at work for cutting greenhouse plastic. Has a bottle opener for the steinlagers to!!

    no but once had to use a penknife iconcealed on me to cut the ligature off the throat of a guy who hung himself usung his SOCKS.alas poor bugger didnt survive despite our best CPR efforts.actually how many on here are current with CPR taraining -im not but ive used it NO DUFF'x3 with success at least in short term.
    bears thinking about if your hunting mate dropps in the scrub or maimai.

    no duff is military terminology for

    I bet more people are injured by the sharp edges on a multi tool blade than a rifle, especially here in NZ......
