A single tool or multitool or Swiss Army model has one problem: Often you need a tool in each hand. A pliers in one, and a Marlin spike, or perhaps a knife, in the other. Thus this kit was born. Lots of potentially great combinations. The primary need is usually to cut the neck or limbs free of painful, often strangulating plastic or wire. Why no wire cutter? Well, could be a slender, strong cutter that would be perfect. There is not often enough space to get a wire cutter between animal flesh and metal. A super slender but strong cutter would be good. Sometimes I switch out with a LM Skeletool CX, or a SOG Pocket Power Pliers.
