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.
When it comes to Leatherman Charge models, the Costco Exclusive SLV is one of the great collectibles.
At one time the Champion was aptly named, because it was the biggest Swiss Army Knife you could get- it was the Gold Standard!
It's been a while since I posted a spork, so I figured I'd better fix that with these sporks from UCO!
Another entry in the "Didn't know or forgot about" file is the Curve from Gerber- perhaps the smallest tool you can get with locking functions!
Highly valued by collectors, the Radio Shack branded Leatherman Squirt model was originally released for Radio Shack.
I greatly dislike shoddy, poorly made tools, but not as much as I dislike shoddy, poorly made tools with good quality names on them.
Another model in the Wenger Patagonia series is this Evogrip S18.
This is a Leatherman PST, which stands for Personal Survival Tool. Ordinarily if write about how iconic and important this tool is, and it absolutely is- but you can read all that here: https://wiki.multitool.org/tiki-index.php?page=PST
You probably don't remember this one, but I was thrilled when I saw it for the first time at the SHOT Show in 2011.
I love Wenger Knives, and this serrated Journeyman is an excellent example of why.
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.
