K2 vs Vic 111mm
« on: September 06, 2020, 01:29:51 AM »
Since January I only have a Vic Tinkerer and Leatherman Wave, after getting rid of all other knifes and multitools I owned. Now that I know my tool needs, I want to add an intermediate knife that has a one hand opening blade and some tools, esp. a philips screwdriver.

I am torn between a 111mm Victorinox or a Leatherman K2. I had and liked several 111mm Vic, but never handled a K2.

Any experience how the two compare?

I've never handled a K2, either. But I do like my Outrider...a lot.

Feel free to ask the same question on this thread which already has some people following. https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,84310.0.html

I ended up not getting the K2 after seeing how large and bulky it is at the store ... But that might suit you.

I stuck with 111mm SAKs though I've never been thrilled with the one hand opening mechanism.

 :iagree: They are less bulky and with the Square shank Phillips they can be used with the bit adapter and used with all kinds of different bits then :tu:

Hercules vs K4 ,my winner is K4 due to bigger blade and drivers,plus pocket clip.And all locking blades,tools. Same for T series vs climber etc.Vic just spoils us with can opener and hook.

It's just that when you gotta open a can... you gotta open a can.
