Favorite Multi Tool?

Post by gringoantonio »

What is your favorite multi tool to take with you on backpacking trips?

I have an old Leatherman Wave that has served me well for ages. But I've never used half the tools on it (while backpacking) and am looking for something more pared down and significantly lighter...

Thanks!

Hmmm let me see....my FJ Cruiser + gas @ $45 for a tank + fatty snacks @ $8 = $53 +or- for an $80 knife.
Ok I'll bite....Where is it?... :D

On a side note I found this on Perry Mesa years ago. The leather sheath was rotted but I cleaned and polished it and it's like new.

One of my Japanese friends just scored this Leatherman. He has a little more money than me.

Perhaps not anymore.

The NPS gave Mrs. big_load a Leatherman last month for excessive volunteer service.

Still have the original ones from when they first came out, both were Christmas Gifts from coworkers at the fire department. One of them left in a ruin in the Sierra Ancha's and recovered later.
