What is the most useful multitool?
« on: August 12, 2009, 09:21:55 PM »
I love my Spirit X and it will always be my favorite MT, but I have found that on a daily basis I don’t have much use for the saw and the can and bottle openers, and even the awl.  I’ve been thinking, is there any tool out there that you could use every tool on it, every day. 

The PST II is a good choice since, with the exception of the can opener, every other tool could get used on any given day.  I like scissors so that is a big part in choosing the PST II.

So, what do you think is the most useful MT?  Not your favorite, but the most useful.

A toothpick...? :think: So many ways you can use it.. ;)
I think it's a matter of individual needs... But my Juice s2 is pretty all-round.. :tu:

I've been considering a Buck Xtract Fin.

Knife
Pliers
Slotted Screwdriver
Phillips Screwdriver
Scissors

These are the tools I use the most and all one-hand-opening is an attractive feature for me.

Winnar!

I'd have to give a nod to the S2 Juice too.  Or CS4.  Or Kf4   usefulness to size ratio wise.

Yes I have to agree about the Juice S2.  It's light and will pretty much get any job done outside of going to a toolbox.

I'm going to have to say the Skeletool.

Sure, it has a minimalistic tool load out, but it is IMO the most versatile MT on the market because of the large bit driver. With the bit kit, you will rarely find a screw you can't turn etc. Plus, it has a variety of carry options that will ensure that you always have it with you (pocket clip and carabiner). So for five ounces you get a knife, wire cutters, pliers, soft/hard wire cutters, a bottle opener, and four screwdrivers!

Thats it and thats the reason why we need more light but capable tools. Those tools you can easily EDC while having enough power to do most jobs.
Tools like the juice or skeletool series.

I have never felt undertooled with my Spirit S.  I use every tool on there at least once a week.

i use a toothpick everyday...
i don't have one but i think i could make due nicely with a juice S2 also. however, for my needs and uses ATM i gotta have a saw so i will choose the vic spirit. i'm sure i could get on ok with others but the good thing is i don't have to.

Most useful tool for me is a simple pocketknife.  I can do alot with it, and it handles many of my everyday chores, which more then anything, are cutting chores.  String, bags, food, etc.  My Ugly Duckling is all I need to get me through the day.

I know this answer! :ahhh

"The One You Have On YOU!" :twak:

no such thing as the best or most useful, everyone is different and needs different things.
some luv the corkscrew, some the awl, some the scissors, some the saw, everyone is
different, find out what's best for you, on any given day (it could change daily) and
have it on you and that will be the most useful tool/multitool in the world!

I'd say the most useful multitool is the one within reach.

LOL!  I agree with that!  But I'd also have to say KF4 or Juice SC2.  The scissors are nice and the saw is not something I'd use "everyday".  But everything is trade.  Been carrying mainly the KF4 so it's been my most used lately.

The one that you have on you when you need to do quick repair. The  more i carry my Spartan, Tinker and Cadets the more i like them. Yesterday i was replacing the screen on my back sliding glass door i was lazy to go to my tool box i did the whole job with my little SAK. Took the handle off with my can opener/phillips screwdriver, put the rubber cord in with the flat-head screwdriver and trimmed the excess screen with the blade. All the tools worked well for these tasks.  :D

I am biased because my current EDC is the SOG PPP.  The nice thing is everyday needs vary by the individual, you may not need a saw but someone else may use one very frequently.   Back to the SOG PPP, you can customize it to your own needs based on the removable parts and the availability of other parts.  To be honest my biggest surprise of this tool is just how little it gets mentioned.

I guess my only complaint on the SOG PPP is the inside opening blade, outside would have been much better as the knife is my most used implement.....OHO would be the icing on the cake.

 :sak: that one!  :D

definitely your mind. If you're smart enough, you don't need a MT because you can find a way to use everything and anything for whatever task is at hand. Since even the smartest people use fancy tools nowadays, I don't think we humans are nearly as smart as we take ourselves for.
