His own board of directors has denounced his associations, and organizations he supports. They've tried to separate themselves and the company from his personal interests. But it's tough to really separate the two, when we all know he's getting the company profits, and using them in this direction.

1971BB427 Since I'm a strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment rights, I can't carry, or use a Leatherman. Tim Leatherman is a big supporter and donor to many anti gun groups.

68_NewportCustom Big Leatherman fan. Acquired a wave through work, it became my best belt pouched friend until several pieces broke. Sent it to leather man for a free replacement (love that warranty). Still toting replacement as of now right next to a buck knife. If pants go on so does the leather man.

MARTINSR Yeah, the Gerber is really an awesome tool working just like a regular pair of pliers when opened.

I don't wear the Gerber anywhere but work but I sure wish I had it now and then when I am not.

1971BB427 I have a Leatherman (made here in Portland) a Gerber, and an SOG. All gifts from family over the years. My biggest gripe with the Leatheman is the grip. When opened the plier grip is the thin edge of the channel that tools fold from, so the harder I grip it, the more it digs into my hand. Stupid design. The other two both have the wide flat edge to grip, so you can really grip hard, and be comfortable.
I actually don't carry any of them, as I've always preferred a good pocket knife. But I do have the SOG tossed in my emergency travel kit, so it's there in case I need another tool.

BuzzLOL . My brother gave me the Leatherman multi-tool... so I keep it in the glovebox... hope I wasn't supposed to get federal license to do that these days...

camora I have a Leatherman wingman which I like because of the scissors believe it or not and also a Chinese knockoff that I leave in the car, and have used it lots of times.

MARTINSR Kershaw makes a hell of a tool! If my kids hadn't bought me mine I never would have sprung for it.

Silverback its bad when you forget your underwear places ;-)

this one is on my short list but i can't really justify the cost:
Kershaw Blur Limited Edition Blue 1670NBS30V Assisted Knife - House of Blades

MARTINSR I don't want to think about it that much. Knowing me, it would only mean I would forget it all together and I don't want to do that.

Silverback LOL, I was thinking about it at the gym tonight and I change knives more than I change my underwear (and I have more of them)... I grabbed a 3rd on the way to the gym, a SOG Flash 1, since it's smaller and lighter and fits better in the pocket of my sweats.

MARTINSR I just have the two, the Kershaw I wear every single day, don't even think about it. The Gerber is at work only.

I don't use it for anything, it's razor sharp and I mean razor sharp, literally. It's for another use and I want it in perfect working order if I ever need it for that.

LOL, I know I have a problem with these... I have tool box full that sits on my dresser... I pick what I want to carry that day depending on mood and what I'm doing. The current top of the list is a benchmade mini griptillian, a bunch of Kershaws (2 different blurs, termite, 2 different skylines, knockout...), a couple of spydercos (Paramilitary 2, Manix 2 lightweight), an Ontario Rat 1 and Rat 2, a couple of SOGs, Dozier... I can keep going...

I have a few folding multitools but I'm not the biggest fan of them, the best that I've used/carried was a Leatherman wave but that was a bit clunky. Usually when I want a screwdriver on me I put my leatherman C55b (a largish thumbstud lockblade with a flip out screwdriver bit holder, it's clunky in your hand but doesn't seem so in your pocket) or one of my victorinox swiss army knives (clunky in your pocket but nice in your hand)...

I've had the Paramilitary 2 and the Thermite in my pocket today...
