Gerber Auto Recoil Auto-Plier Review

I got this because of the outside opening blade, I thought it could replace my EDC knife only to find it was nigh on impossible to open the blade one handed, the blade looks as though it was stamped out from a sheet and the finger holes are beveled in so my finger could not get a grip secure enough for me to open the blades. I got out the trusty Dremmel and put some cross hatching on the blade above the finger holes and it is now possible to open the tools one handed, when you get the outer blades half open it releases the lock of the inside tool and it too can then be opened easily.

Gerber Multi Plier 600 Review

I bought this to replace my first Gerber that was the one of the first models Gerber made that nipped your hand if you were not careful how you used it. I gave that one to one of my sons who still uses it in case he has adjustments to make on his bike while out riding.

Buck X-Tract Review

When I first saw pictures of the Buck X-Tract I thought it was a cool looking tool but wasn't sure how well it would be. Then when I found out it was selling for just around $30 on most knife and tool sites I thought I would take the risk and get one.

Victorinox Spirit Review

First off let me say that this will be more than a review, think of it as “ramblings of a multitool enthusiast”. I have been a fan of the multitool scene ever since I was introduced to it around 2001. I had known about Swiss Army Knives, which virtually everyone carried, and of Tim Leatherman’s brand of tools that also were on the market. I never was a pocket knife person and never did carry one, let alone a tool of any kind, I just didn’t see why anyone would ever need one….and then I was hooked. A couple of the guys at work had pocket knives and I was not drawn in to own one myself but I did fancy the ingenuity and simplicity of them. On my birthday (Dec 12th) in 2000, the guys at work pitched in and bought me my first mulitool. Their choice was a Gerber Multi-Lite, since I seemed to be a person that might not like just having a knife; they figured they could give me something with a little more utility. Ever since I received that gift I have been hooked on knives and tools alike, my quest went from there to find the perfect multitool. Course problem being was; the market was quite saturated with so many tools that it makes ones head hurt trying to decide. With other brands adding to the above mentioned, like Bear MGC, Kershaw, Buck, SwissTech, etc. you really had to do your homework before you made your purchase.

Leatherman Fuse Review

The Fuse is the middle child in a family of three tools Leatherman brought out in 2004. It is more capable than the less expensive Kick , but thinner and lighter than the Blast. All three tools bear a strong resemblance to each other, and all share the same improved stronger elliptical plier head. (Along with the Leatherman Charge and New Wave .)

Paul Chen Multi Tasker Review

I have just received a Paul Chen Multi Tasker, first impression= it could have been made by Gerber, very much like a shiny Recoil. Then when you start using it you find the shears can not be flicked out like a Gerber because they are locked in both the open and closed position. To use you have to press the buttons and let it slide open/closed. The shears are 1/8" thick and cut what cable I had laying around very well also paper card plastic sheet a seat belt and some canvas.

Leatherman SideClip Review

Once in a while a design comes along that seems innovative, and many of those that do come along just miss the mark due to one problem or another. The Leatherman SideClip is an innovative design but was discontinued some time ago. In my mind, this simply screamed “bad design” to me. I decided to pick one up after some members on the forum raved about how good it was. I figured, at the very least it was worth adding one to my collection. Once again, I was happy to be proven wrong.

Gerber Fisherman Multi-Plier 600 Review

Combine extra-extra long needlenose pliers onto the standard Gerber 600 multi-plier frame and you get the Gerber Fisherman multi tool. My dad the walleye fisherman specifically requested this tool for his birthday present, and after receiving it from me, he graciously loaned it back for this review. What a guy.

Leatherman Wave 2004 Review

 

Leatherman has made so many tools by now they are becoming too numerous to count, but each generation they create seems to get better than the previous, after all isn’t that what product manufacturers strive to do? They take something that the public already loves and has widely accepted and remake that item so it’s even better than its predecessors. When Leatherman came out with the Wave it hit the mulitool market by storm and soon became the “flagship” item that was the crowning achievement for Leatherman, heck even wal-mart had it listed on their shelves as “best sold mulitool”. I owned an original Wave and thought it was defiantly a forward thinking in multitool design, it was the first tool to have one handed opening blades. Having those on the outside as well as a saw and file makes the tools even with the bottom of the tool; giving the user more surface area to work with. Well in 2004 Leatherman introduced a new version of their Wave based off the design of their new flagship tool the Charge, the Wave may not be sporting a 154CM blade or Titanium handles but it’s still a contender in its own right.

Leatherman PST II Review

An unforgettable classic, the PST II was the follow up to the immensely popular original Leatherman Pocket Survival Tool (PST).
