Here you go.





With the Squirt, you get your choice of scissors (S4), wire stripper (E4), or pliers (P4). The Micra only comes with scissors.



The S4 and E4 have removable tweezers. There are other slight tool differences that can be seen in the above photograph.


My opinion, I like both the Micra and the Squirt series. The Squirts do seem to be a lot more refined with their rounded edges and Juice like construction. They are smaller than the venerable Micra, but surprisingly not by much. The removable tweezers are superior to that found on the MIcra. Likewise, if you want a wire stripper or a plier based mini MT, the Squirt is the only Leatherman game in town. Mind you, if you like your bottled beer, the Micra should be the only keychain Leatherman tool you will want or need. :D

You are welcome.

The Micra is a super tool. The Squirts take a slightly different slant. All are equally good in my opinion.

i got the gerber clutch as thought it pliers would be useful but as it usually pared with a larger LM ive never used it's pliers , so paring the micra with its scissors is great with the Kick or the PST  :tu:

little and large  :D

I would recommend one Paul  :tu:

My S4 was my introduction to world of multitools. £22 from Argos :D At the time this is a lot of money for a little pair of scissors  ::) When I opened I was in awe at the attention to detail and well put together it is :D The rest as they say is history  :salute:

I don't own any SAK's so I find the tweezers invaluable  :tu: Like you said if you always have larger LM's with you a P4 or Clutch does become somewhat redundant  :(

The little guy is always close by. Here he is with my EDC setup :D


Here he is with some of the family

I think it depends on the full size MT, as my kick and the micra are a good combo as there is no scissors on the kick, same as the pst as well, but if i have the wave then yes its redundant then,

Probably the handiest tool I have.  Mainly because I always carry it because of it's unobtrusive size.

Sorry it's the Squirt P4.  I bought my GF the S4 and she keeps it in her purse. 
I find the Squirt is a little more pocket friendly probably because it's a tad
smaller and has nicely rounded edges.  :tu:

I just got one of each micra/squirt s4 with blue handles (already carry a micra but this one has blue handle) and love them both. You really need both to compare and decide  >:D

There is just one consideration - the squirt contains a plastic piece to hold the tweezers and if you work around paint thinner, that will melt the plastic. The micra has no plastic parts.
