Top 5 Multitools for Christmas

Written by

Christmas 2016 Group Shot

It's that time of year, and if you are thinking of asking for a tool for Christmas, or getting one for someone else but aren't sure what to get, here are some ideas (in no particular order!) on what to look for!  

Leatherman WaveLeatherman Wave

The old standby, you couldn't have a list like this without it! The Leatherman Wave's one handed opening blades have made it one of the most popular tools on the market, and a favorite of users everywhere. Plus, it can be carried either in the sheath or, with the available clip, discretely and conveniently in your pocket!

Victorinox SpiritVictorinox Spirit

From the makers of the world famous Swiss Army Knife comes the Spirit, the sleekest, most ergonomic multitool available, and it has more functions than pretty much any other tool too! As if that wasn't enough, it's handles are perfect for engraving a personalized message, name, date or anything else on for a gift with that personal touch!

Gerber Center-DriveGerber Center-Drive

This year's hottest must-have tool, the Gerber Center-Drive features Gerber's traditional sliding head plier design, one handed opening blade and a fold out screwdriver that follows along the centerline of the tool to make it easier to tighten that hard to reach screw. Another big benefit is the Center Drive is brand new, (released November 1st) so there's good chance they don't already have this one!

SOG Micro Tool ClipSOG Micro Tool Clip

Like the Gerber Center-Drive, the Third Generation Micro Tool Clip is brand new- it's actually a 2017 model that was released early, specifically for Pre-Christmas sale! And, the price is certainly right- for a mere $20 you can pick up a gift set that includes a Micro Tool Clip and a Centi II knife, which was also not expected to be on shelves until the New Year.


Designed by Liong Mah, the CRKT Viva is a one piece tool that features a bottle opener, multi sized wrench, and screwdriver/pry bar in a package that makes it very easy to carry and use- simply slip it on a bag strap or belt loop and away you go! It's the lightest of the bunch, but is robust enough to tackle any jobs that come it's way!

Whatever tool you decide to get, you can be assured that each of the above are going to come in handy for years to come!
