A multi-tool is a portable, flexible hand tool that has several hand tools combined in a single unit. There are several multi-tool brands available in the market and each comes with unique features as well as capability. Let me present you with my favorite (Leatherman) and a few of their specific models.
1. Leatherman Wave
The Wave is perhaps one of the most popular multi tools available in the market today. This impressive multi tool consists of seventeen different tools packed in one body.
It is light, versatile and small enough, hence it’s easy to carry in your pocket .Not to mention, Leatherman wave has two disparate screw bits, Philips eyeglass Screwdriver and a stainless steel body that locks in place all the wave’s tools firmly hence making it very comfortable to use.
Some of its myriad tools include, serrated knife, a saw, a pair of scissors and a bottle opener.
2. Leatherman Micra
Although the Micra is among Leatherman’s smallest multi tools, it still manages to firmly hold ten different tools in its tiny package. When closed, the Micra is only 2.5 inches and it comes in different colors.
Not to mention, Micra comes with a myriad of tools which include nail file, tweezers, three screwdrivers, a bottle opener and a knife just to mention but a few. Besides that, the Micra is lightweight, flexible and is small enough making it easy to carry in your pocket or even to put on your keychain.
In addition, the Micra is made of stainless steel, hence it’s very durable. It is extremely popular among fishermen since it has best spring action scissors that is commonly used by fishermen.
3. Leatherman Skeletool
Leatherman Skeletool is among the smallest Leatherman multi tools available on the market. It has fewer tools, but it is lighter, more portable and also small enough to be carried easily in your pocket or even to be put on a keychain.
The Skeletool has seven tools which include needle nose, a knife, standard pliers, a screwdriver, a bottle opener and a Carabineer clip. Besides that, Leatherman has a black carbon fiber handle that makes it very comfortable to use. It’s also very budget-friendly.
4. Leatherman Charge Tti
The Leatherman Charger TTi is yet another great Multi tool (and my personal favorite) it comes with different tools packed in a single unit. Besides that, it is versatile and small enough to fit in your bag or even your pocket.
It is definitely one of the best multi tools available on the market today. The Leatherman TTi consists of 19 tools that include metal file, needle nose, a knife, diamond-coated file a saw and a serrated knife just to mention but a few.
Besides that, it has a stainless steel body with Lanyard ring , a quick release ring and a blades rock. However, the quality does come at a price and it’s one of the more expensive pieces out there.
In summary, it is clear that there are several brands of multi tools available in the market each consisting of unique features and capabilities. Some come with serrated knives, bottle opener, screwdriver and tweezers just to mention but a few.
It’s hard to go wrong by choosing any of the aforementioned pieces from my favorite brand of multi tools, Leatherman.
