Good stuff Joe. I (hopefully) haven't made it a secret how much I love e Skeletool CX. It's been a lifesaver at work. Now that I'm leaving it there, I'm looking at something in the Juice line to replace it on the homefront.

That or the CS4. The XE6 has some stuff I will not really use.

Make sure when you get your Skeletool you get the CX. Sexier to look at, and the blade is 154CM vs. 420HC on the regular Skele. Massive difference in performance, for me anyways.

I always seem to overlook this part of my carry :(

 

Currently I have a Nautika Mini-Tek multi tool that I picked up somewhere along the way as a promotional giveaway. Decent, but a bit one the smallish side and pretty limited.

 

I'm looking to upgrade, probably to a Style PS to carry on me, and something bigger (like the Wave) for my bag. I currently have a Stanley multitool residing there.

You can't go wrong with the Wave.  I absolutely love it.  Just for competition's sake, however, check out the Victorinox SwissTool Spirit X.  It's the only only multi-tool I've found that gives the Wave a hard run for its money.

Ha ha, I really walked into that one...Chris, sir, you are an enabler extraordinaire :P

 

Seriously, though, I was eying the SwissTools display when I was at he Victorinox store but never got the chance to mess around with one. That's high on my list when I go back.

You wouldn't be disappointed if you went that route over the Leatherman.  Both really are fantastic.

For work I use a leatherman wave. Hands down one of the best multi tools I've ever owned.
For camping I have an older Gerber multi tool. The pliers slide out the front. Not even sure what model it is.
And my Gerber dime for edc.

I have a Leatherman Wave and various bit accessories. A few years ago I would have sworn by it, but since then I've had to replace it a few times - and the replacement does not feel as well made as the earlier ones - with stiffer, more clunky movements.

 

Also, when I enquired about the chances of left-handed versions of any of their tools I just got a blunt 'No'. Being a Lefty makes the 'one-handed opening' facility pretty awkward.

 

I read a recent review of the Swiss Army equivalent which praised the build and workmanship so I'm thinking of trying one out.

Hey Rey, Victorinox tools of any kind are worth their weight in gold. It's been no secret around here that I'm a Swiss Army Knife fanatic, and their multitools are no exception.

I think you've just convinced me to give one a go.

My EDC tool is a Gerber Suspension in a modified Outdoor Edge holster. I carry a Victorinox Super Tinker SAK when I can't have stuff hanging off my belt.  There's an old Craftsman 45201 (a re-branded Bear Jaws 155L) in my guitar case.  That was my first multi-tool, got it for five bucks at a garage sale, and retired it about six years ago in favor of the Gerber.

For everyday carry, I prefer to keep a USMC multitool.
