I have many times. I cycle between the Leatherman Fuse and the Core. My wife has the Juice S2 in her purse and sometimes lets me carry it. I keep on going back so either one of my SAK's or just a single blade knife. Much too often i get into this whole self-debate about which is better to have with you, a knife of an MT. Who knows.
The single biggest problem for me with MTs is actually I hate using most of them as knives. Perhaps that's somewhat heretic here, but they're clumsy, have horrible ergonomics, etc. I'm a big fan of the Swiss, so for me it's a pretty big admission that as a knife, the Skeletool is the best multi I've tested. The asymmetric design make it less clumsy as a knife than other multitools I've handled. The tools where the blades are on the inside, at the opposite end of the pliers, like the original PST are IMHO the worst when used as knives. Therefore I really like to have some kind of knife in addition anyway when I carry a multitool, this has made me look extra when people present their bladeless mods.
