Is that a Fenix you have there on your keychain? They're very well made flashlights, I have the TK10 which is a little large for keychain duty but still a very manageable size.

I rock the black gerber multitool that was issued to me and a Leatherman supertool 200 that I bought when they first came out. Both are pretty decent, since I use them a bit and have had them for years. It's one of those things that I recommend everybody should have one in their car/bag. Just too damn useful.

I have an old Buck Minibuck 350 Tool. Used it a lot when I had a nitro RC car.
sold a swisstech M2 tool, I think it's swisstech. it wasn't as smooth opening as the Buck. I don't think they make the mini buck tool anymore at least not made in the USA.
I would like to compare it to the leatherman Micra.

i carry a gerber shortcut, had it for ages and its perfect, although the scissors on it are getting worn, pretty heavy use though.

the other multi-tool i keep at home is a gerber nautilus and Gerber MP600 pro scout, which was the first i bought. gerber blades are the best for me.

before i had gerber i was carrying a victorinox and the build quality/blades aren't even close to gerber.

I have nothing really mentionable, though its different from everyone else here, a generic realtree multitool that I'm pretty sure I picked up at Bass Pro Shops a few years ago.

It looks like an E01, which uses AAA batteries. I have one as well, but I'm not a huge fan of the purplish-tint and the oval beam. Nitecore recently came out with the EZ AA, which uses a single AA battery, allowing for longer runtime and more brightness.

Leatherman Skeletool looks nice. The Leatherman Wave I bought a year ago is still brand new and sitting in a cupboard. Does Gerber make better multi-tools ?

I think it ends up really being a matter of personal preference and aesthetics. I was given my first Leatherman (a Micra) when I was 10 and I have been sticking with Leatherman ever since (a PST, SuperTool 200, Wave and Surge have all made their way into the house as well). I really liked the aesthetics, build quality and functionality of the older Gerber multitools, especially the ones with the 'Flick-out' plier feature, but I have to say I don't honestly care for some of their newer ones. My dad just picked up a Gerber Suspension recently, and other than its smaller size, I really have a hard time finding anything about it that I really like.

I've got the Skeletool CX and Victorinox SwissTool on the mail. 'Till then, the Vic Rambler keeps me busy

Yes, Nebby. All your fault. I went for the regular stainless steel version.

Yeah it's an E01. I got a black one now, and gave the olive one to my friend. Unfortunately my carabiner spring broke. I'm gonna have to pick up a new one at TAD gear this week.

My Outdoor/EDC tool inventory:
Gerber Pro scout 600 w/ needle nose
Buck 110 Folding hunter knife
SOG Powerlock B61 EOD
Surefire E2L light

I got the Gerber a year or 4 back and it has always serverd me great. Love the one-hand opening pliers. A friend of mine has a LM Wave.
Although the LM are more solid build and the knife is one hand opening i still stick to the Gerber as the plier is the main function.
For knifing nothing beats my Buck, i ab-so-lutly love that knife. Got it the same day as my gerber. Its strong, holds a edgde verry good,
handles superb and it looks just plain stylish. Not a multitool but it fits the topic anyway
The SOG entered my inventory 1,5 month ago. Its fully made of stainless steel and build like a tank, it aslo weights as much.
Its a bit bulky compared to my gerber but it works great and the butterfly opening is verry smooth. Also, the 1/4" drive socket is a nice feature
