If you had to choose just one?
« on: September 23, 2006, 05:29:09 AM »
I know that most of us have more than one multitool.  And we each have our favorites for one reason or another. What I was wondering is what tool you would choose if you were to be stranded somewhere and could only have one. My choice would have to be the Vic Swisstool. It's size, sturdiness, durability and tool selection pluses.

I it depends on where you are stranded.. In a building? Highway? Desert Island??? Mountains??

 IMO a tool with all the driver gadgets would be useless on an Island or in the montains or desert. Unless you needed it to just start your car. In that case call triple AAA or hitch a ride.





I would think the tool bits and screwdriver would become usless and all you would need is the Blade, file and saw. So I pick the Core.

That's the thing when picking a tool. It's like old saying "the right tool for the right job"  I was just wondering because I have been watching SurivorMan the past month on the Discovery channel.  And Less Stroud always seems to either be using the old LM Wave or the SwissTool. There have been episodes where he was stranded in the mountians, in the desert, on an island, even on a life raft.  His web site says he likes LM tools the best but on many of his episodes he using a Swisstool.

If I had to have only one multi it would have to do as many tasks as possible so I think the Swiss Tool would win.  As it as the most tools and all the screwdrivers are not stuby.  That said, the Wave/Charge would have one hand opening blades which could replace a knife.

If you have not read this yet, then this is a great read on the Core:

Thanks colubrid. I spoke to Mike earlier this week. Sounds like he still likes his new Core about as much as you like yours!  :)

Come on guys, spend some time talking about tools I already have... I can't afford to keep getting new ones at this rate!

If limited to only one, I would definitely choose my Original SwissTool.  It has been used and abused and continues to serve me well.

1st and foremost I'd choose a Lightsabre

since I only own an older wave and super tool, I'd say wave one handed, scissors, comfort

That wouldn't be much of a multitool, unless you got one with pliers!

All the Swisstool recommendations are inspiring.  I ordered a Swisstool X today.

Gotta love peer pressure.  The X model is perhaps my favorite as well.  I really like having the scissors, plus the X has standard Victorinox scissors so spare parts are readily available.
To me that's the one benefit of the X over the Spirit.
