zulumoose wrote:I have carried a Leatherman Wave every day that I have worn a belt for over 20 years. It has come in useful a ridiculous number of times, and everything on it still works perfectly. I have also used it for many things it was not designed for, such as levering things open (even manholes), hammering, chiselling, hanging as a plumb-bob weight, hair trimming, and many others I don't recall right now.

The price is high, but the quality and utility over time makes it well worth it.
What is missing for everyday carry is a light source and ignition source, both of which are on my keyring.
I also recently added a new leather pouch and a perfectly sized torch as a companion tool that slots onto the pouch.

The tread, OTOH, I regard as a an overpriced and rather pathetic gimmick.
The tread is like a 4x4 that has low profile rims and no ground clearance, the practicality is theoretical only.

Yeah, my multitool pocketknife has been with me for maybe 20 years and I still use it all the time. Works perfectly.

She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!
