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.
One of several variants in my collection, this Wenger was originally called the Mini Grip and was later called the Pocket Grip.
Those who remember Scibeer Bill and have seen his work up close will agree- the man was a knife modifying legend! Look at those hand peened pins!
We talk an awful lot about Swiss Army Knives around here, but what is going on in the US? Well, there's this USMC Milk knife from Imperial- how's that?
This Victorinox model is not a Swiss Army Knife as it has no knife, or indeed any of the tools normally found on a typical Swiss Army style knife!
Multitools come in all different shapes, sizes and functions- like this KeySmart Pro, which, as you can see is well used!
We see a lot of tools oriented to military and emergency workers, but what about a tool dedicated to having a good time? For that, you need the Triple Play from Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT).
People often ask me what is the best tool- and the answer is simple. You can always your time, think of the features you want most in a tool, or you can buy a Victorinox Spirit and be happy!
When it comes to rescue tools, the key feature needs to be simplicity. In an emergency, no one should need to stop and fiddle with something.
When it comes to a tool that you can put on your keychain and not notice until you need it, few are as seamless as the Utili-Key from Swiss*Tech.
