As the founder of Multitool.org Grant has been a collector of Swiss Army Knives and multitools for over 25 years, and a user for over 40 years.
With a day job working in the field, either out in the woods or on industrial sites, Grant uses tools every day for all manner of different purposes.
There's just 24 hours left until we draw a winner for this OKnives Heron L1 knife!
The folks at OKnife have sent me their new Heron L1 folder to review, and they were nice enough to send an extra one along to give away.
I just got them in yesterday afternoon and I'm a bit rushed to get it posted, because they are also having a flash sale on these from April 16th to the 22nd.
Continuing the Leatherman theme this week with this well used Squirt S4. Like any reliable tool this one has been used hard but is still ready to do its job!
I've been having a lot of fun with my 3D Printer lately, trying out neat designs for EDC- for example this 3D printed sheath for the Leatherman Wave!
Leatherman's SideClip model is highly prized by minimalists and collectors and is easily identified by its four piece handles and pocket clip.
Some of you may identify this as an 80's style Victorinox Champion. Some of you may notice the FINBATT UNDOF (a Finnish Battalion involved in the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force) markings on the side, but this one is way more important than that!
Leatherman packed a lot of features in the compact Juice frame with the XE6 model, and wrapped it in glorious Thunder Purple handles!
If you want to start your kids off with a safe but useful tool, it's hard to beat this one- aptly named My First Victorinox. Featuring a handy array of functions that even adults will love, MFV differs mostly because of the rounded tip on the main blade to minimize accidents while learning!
One of my personal favorite Wenger models is this EvoGrip S17. It offers all the tools you need in a compact package with a locking blade so you can keep that red stuff inside your fingers where it belongs!
When you want colors beyond the norm, Leatherman has you covered with the Juice series, like this new version of the CS4.
What kind of people would write collect and review multitools? Quite simple really- we are designers and do-ers, outdoors types and indoor types, mechanics, doctors, problem solvers and problem makers. As such, we have, as a world spanning community, put every type, size and version of multitool, multifunction knife, pocket knife and all related products to every test we could manage in as many places and environments as there are.
