Two interesting tools, created at time when their respective companies were at the top of their game.
The GEC costs about $110 from a dealer and the flair, in good condition, about the same, on eBay.
They both have forks, unusual for a multitool/multiknife.
The GEC has a more solid frk, possibly too solid.
The Leatherman has scissors, butter knife, and a corkscrew, not so common on tools.
However, the GEC has a beard comb which really beats the Leatherman in terms of the most unusual tool.
Both have very good construction.
The Leatherman has a slim serrated blade and the GEC a plain edge, larger blade.
Only one has pliers...
It is funny as the idea of using a tool to loosen oily, rusty screws and then to eat your food seems less upsetting to some people than using the comb to comb your washed beard and then using it to eat your food.
