Carrying Multiple Multitools
« on: October 25, 2006, 01:47:17 AM »
Excuse the cross-post from edcforums, but I really want to know what you folks think of carrying multiple multitools.

So I'm experimenting with the most efficient use of the screwdriver/plier Leatherman model of EDC.  I'm trying both a Charge/305 combo & a Charge/Spirit combo.  The first giving me a multitool plus a knife/screwdriver combo & the second giving me a multi/multi combo with everything that entails (including adjusting a bolt & nut at the same time).  Both give one-handed access to a blade.  I'm also carrying a Wenger SAK (not sure of model) with blade/nailfile/toothpick/tweezers to give me the nailfile & tweezers that the other multi lacks ( & the toothpick).  I also have a PryBaby Mini in a bag or pocket to save the others from damage.  Any thoughts on this model?

Is this your Wenger?



If so, it's the Esquire, which is Wenger's answer to Victorinox's Classic model, which is the best selling knife of all time.  A little off topic, but I felt it was worth mentioning.

The only multiple tool carry I do is a full sized multi on my belt and a Micra or similar scissor based multi on my keys.  Unless you also consider a SAK to be a multi, in which case I usually have a 3-4 layer SAK like the Victorinox Huntsman, Climber or Explorer or ALOX Soldier variant (like a DAK, Wenger SI etc) in my pocket.

My Wenger only has the nailfile & blade.  I think it's the Crusader.  It pretty well disappears in a watch pocket.

Cool.  That's a handy little model too.

I find that just a single multi isn't as useful as having both a multi and a SAK.  They compliment eachother perfectly, especially when you have to hold a bolt and unscrew it at the same time.

Ok... maybe this is a silly question, but, I keep hearing about needing pliers and a screwdriver at the same time.  Why doesn't anyone ever carry a screwdriver?  There's got to be like 9 million different screwdriver designs out there, and I would think there's at least a few that would be good for EDC...

There are some great little EDC screwdrivers - even with multiple bits.  You think we might be obsessed with carrying only multitools?  Nah!!

Haha... I keep seeing posts about people carrying SAK's and Multi's, or two multi's.  Heck, I'm guilty of it myself.  I'm just wondering if it would be more useful for some of you to look into a little EDC screwdriver?

That seems a little risky depending where you carry it, if you know what I mean ;)

I was just rummaging through my old tool bag and I found my SAK OHT, and am going to give it a try.  It fits in my nylon Wave sheath, and it's comfortable as hell, so I am going to give that Sideclip/OHT/Micra a shot and see how it works out.  I'm all excited now, because I've been WANTING to carry my OHT for a while, but never really had a need for it.  Let's see how this works out.

The OHT is a really sweet knife.  I am certain it won't be long before you start to wonder how you did without it!
