Leatherman Charge Ti for work - Leatherman Wave in the truck - both from eBay and about half price.

I carry a knife every day and feel naked without it. My knife ( multi tool ) is no match for these weapon's of mechanical warfare but has served me well for many years. But after seeing some of these i may have to consider an up grade, would be good to see some pics of other models on here.

I've got  a wave which I use for work sometimes. It's usually not too far away wherever I am. I bought my dad a Charge for his 50th and he seems to like it.

I really like that Skeletool pictured above!

Just found you can buy the skeletool cx for as little as $71.93 delivered to your door in Aust, I paid $125.00 for mine 2 yrs ago and that was cheap then.  Great value.

Interesting that I came across this topic - my wife gave me a Leatherman Skeletool a week ago, and after reading though the replies here I was curious about what it cost (she only ever buys stuff at bargain prices) - so she logged on just now and it turns out she ordered and paid for a Leatherman Juice xe6 multitool at $99.99 (from 1day.com.au) and they've sent a Skeletool instead. It's a great little unit but I'm going to exchange it for the Juice.

1day.com.au current price for the Juice is $149.99

The Leatherman is replacing a Victorinox Spartan of unknown providence, I've had it since I was 14 or so (so 28 years now). I think my old mans best mate gave it to me on a fishing trip. My 4yo son will get the Victorinox sometime down the track, one of those dad to son things you have to do  :D

He has already told someone "When my dad dies I'm getting his Nissan Patrol" ;D

I have "The Man".   ;D  It  sets up the CT, removes jar lids, drives, chops wood, can make the bed, dishwash, clean, cooks, gets drinks, protects and does things around the house as well!  It didn't cost me anything up front, but I've found that keeping it in working order is a little expensive.

Kit_e_Kat -  ;D

Skeletool CX for me - a Christmas present last year, so it hasn't really got a good use yet (certainly not compared to these guys with 10yr old ones!), but so far I'm very happy with it. It's light as a feather, the semi-serrated blade is very useful, and like Danbri, the CF is just plain cool.

I've also got a Kingchrome multi which is a much heavier and larger unit - it lives in a side pocket of the tool bag. It's not as convenient, but has a lot more "functions" than the Skeletool, and it built like a brick out-house.

I find them both handy to have while out and about - the skeletool lives with me, and if I need something a bit heftier, there's the Kingchrome one waiting in the wings.

Thanks!
Matto :)

I have an Leatherman crunch. It has vice grips that come in very handy. Like most I have mine in my pocket daily except when venturing to the big smoke. I do not want to try and explain to the police at the train station that it is not a knife but a tool. A tool I use to save lives with and not take them. Oh and to cut up my orange too!
I love it and best of all I got it for free but I think they are around $200 ish.

I've got a Leatherman Wave, an unreal tool to have. Plenty of extras, helps me out nearly every day. The boys at work know a rep, so i got mine for $105, but i've seem them at Camping World up here for $230, not a bad little mark up ay. No small wonder why ebay is so popular, i think they're around $130 on there.

That's extremely cheap. They're about $80 in the US + delivery. I bought mine for about $180 a few years ago locally.

I have 3 multi tools, a Kershaw that has locking pliers, a Leatherman Wave and a new Leatherman Titanium wave, they have a lot of add on you can buy, albeit very expensive unless you buy them over the net.

The Leathermans are very good, but the Kershaw is better IMO, mainly because of the locking pliers, no many accessories if any, but still a very good multi tool.

I have the Leatherman Wave, possibly the best tool I have and use it (I live on a farm) almost every day.

My brother's Leatherman was burnt when our shed went up in flames. After a little cleaning it is working well though a little black in colour!!

If in Victoria, when the Police do a blitz on concealed weapons you could well be arrested and fined ($1000.00) for carrying a Leatherman, this is reported to have happened to a farmer at a recent blitz in the eastern suburbs!!

I have a top draw in my dressing table that i put odds and ends and trinkets. Its full of things collecting dust.
 Well this is the multi tool collection from it.
 There is a couple of waves, a surge, a multi tool, a toolzall pro, and some other german one. Plus some other crap
 I couldn't for the life of me think of a reason to carry one of those things on my belt

Got a new holster for my wave. Hand made in Australia and a great fit. Much better than the one that comes with it which was about to fall apart
