Even someone with little experience in do- it-yourself, repair works, or any kind of mechanics or building and construction can find worth in having a multi tool around your house. In fact, if you aren't going to keep a tool box in your home or apartment, then you ought to at the minimum have a multi tool useful.
With this being said it's simple to make the error of purchasing the very first multi tool you see in the dollar store. These are often cheap and break pretty quickly, the knife and saw blades will dull and be almost ineffective. The pliers will bend, the wire cutters will barely cut paper, and the screw motorist will be a joke. A quality Leatherman loaded to the brim with tools is a better option for only slightly more than the cheapo tool.
The Leatherman Wave is the most popular multi tool Leatherman has. The Wave is the perfect representation of Leatherman items. The quality, tools, and rate have made this a preferred Leatherman. This multi tool is a perfect jack of all trade style tools and it is not developed with a specialty use, but for any type of usage.
pocket multi tool is a really solid tool, even when placed under tension it does not give the feeling of flexing or straining. The tool is difficult and solid. Because of the strong construction and frame, the Wave does can be found in at a significant eight ounces. Eight ounces is a little on the heavy side when riding in the pocket, once positioned in a pouch becomes far more comfortable. This tool is designed to be carried when it's going to be used.

I didn't have much to do for the wood file so I utilized it to smooth out a corner on my workbench and it worked well. Like all multi tool files its brief so you have to put in some additional time. I utilized the metal file to smooth a burr on a revolver base pin that was troubling me. The file worked perfectly for the small task.
