Problem is MT and SAK combos for the must part overlap with the same tools.
Thanks for your answers!I have seen a video about a Wiha double-ended bit kit from TX Tool Crib on YouTube. That looks nice, but as I have seen it does not include allen bits. Do the Leatherman bits have any problems because they are rather two-dimensional? I mean a 5mm allen Leatherman bit doesn't have 5mm on every side, right?Do you recommend some oil on the liner locks? The saw already has a mark from the lock mechanism. But I guess that is normal, right? I could return the Wave (I didn't buy it from Leatherman directly) and directly order a Wave with the pouch with extra pockets and bit extension and bit kit, but I guess returning the Wave would be kind of overdone That also was a problem with my decision. And a reason I chose the Wave, because it adds better to the SAK.I've already noticed that EDC tools can be quite addictive! I can see your point with the collection I've already got 4 SAKs...The Knipex is also nice. TX Tool Crib has a video about leather sheaths for them. How do you carry it?
A little oil won't hurt and the marks are normal. I've found that the Leatherman bits work quite well for most things. I think that a little overlap in tools is okay unless you want to be a complete minimalist but what's the fun in that.

Hey Jona,you seem to be very conscious about little marks and scratches. I can understand that being new to the Wave and Spirit MTs. There always someone here at MTO who can answer your question and give some advice. Lots of experience present here.However, don't forget that LM and Victorinox have a great warranty service. Just pick one and use the hell out of it without worrying too much.You should be allowed to have some fun with them
Thats a nice simple idea for the Knipex, plus not too bulky!Thats right, I am quite a perfectionist ... Sometimes a bit too much.You're right, I shouldn't worry too much and use it as a tool I'll order the bit kit then, I think it is a well-suited option.
Once you start using your Wave it's bound to get some scratches and that is what happens when you use tools. It just gives them character
Looks very nice Jonathan and good to see leatherman making a version that you can legally carry in Germany. Now we just need a non locking version for the UKSent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
Wow, you're not even allowed to carry a locking blade? That's a pity.
Hello,thanks for your welcome, Poncho and Steve! And also thanks for the pictures!I have made some thoughts and these are the results:I will order a Super Tinker for my EDC organizer. It'll replace the Small Tinker with no problem I think, and I've got the nice SAK scissors.The multitool won't be part of my everyday and everywhere carry. So the Philips is a must-have, since I want to have one available for emergencies, even though I can see that it cannot compete with the one on a multitool.Plus, I never need the corkscrew. So the Super Tinker is the way to go!Now, what multitool to get? It should be a nice addition to the Super Tinker and will not always be carried.The Rebar is out of my decision because I dont like the handling of the blades, saw and file due to inside tools.So I have to decide betweed LM Wave 2H and Victorinox Spirit XC.Those are different concepts, I know. LM got the diamond file, bit exchanger and eyeglass-screwdriver (no one in the Super Tinker so thats an advantage). The 2H Wave has no one-hand-opening, so there is no advantage to the Swisstool there.The Spirit has the better build quality, chisel and package opener, only a serrated blade (which is fine since the SAK has a standard blade). I dont really need the bottle cap lifter and can opener, since the Super Tinker already got these. Is the Philips really a lot more slippery because of the polished finish?I'm unsure which plier head I like more. Exchangeable cutters and nice needlenose vs more robust pliers. I would get the Sprit with the ratchet and bit kit. So the only advantage of the Wave's bit exchanger is the option to carry a different bit than a Philips in the multitool, for example a torx, if I haven't got LM bit kit/ VIC ratchet with me. Difficult decision, I know. What would you recommend as a not-always addition to my EDC kit? I like build quality, but I dont like redundancy. At least not in my EDC.Nice regards,Jona
