How badly do you want a dinky slotted screwdriver and a nail file?

Just tonight I saw a video of a guy who superglued a narrow strip of 150 grit sandpaper to the inside of the package hook on a Climber so he'd have a nail file.

So that takes care of the nail file!  :D

Climber.

With the Spartan/Micra combo, you would be carrying an extra ounce of weight (and obviously two tools vs. one) for minimal benefit.

On the other hand... I know a lot of EDCers follow that rule of "Two is one, one is none", so you might consider the duplicated tools as backups...

Like everyone else (so far) I voted Climber.  I'd rather have one larger tool than 2 smaller ones.

Spartan is great. Though I coud swap micra to style.

There should be a third option, Spartan + 58mm (I am thinking of the Jetsetter or Classic). That makes a lot more sense as an alternative to the Climber imho given that you hardly notice a small SAK on your keyring but do get a considerable size advantage when swapping the Climber for a Spartan. Size of the scissors might be a concern for some though.

I voted Climber, but would carry any one of the three mentioned.  A Super Tinker with the sandpaper mod mentioned above would cover the Micra/Spartan combo.

:tu: I was thinking along those lines, too.

Current SAKs: too many to list in a mere 512 characters.
