Today’s Thoughts From Rick – “Two Multi-Tools Priced Just Right For Every Day Carry (EDC)”
One of my “likes” in life are multi-tools. You know, those tools that consist of multiple implements that open up into pliers. As a tech type person, who is a multi-tasker, I have to have a tool in my pocket that is a symbol of what I am about. In my case, that tool has to be able to perform tasks that a normal size tool would perform; must fit comfortably in my pocket (or in a sheath); must be of good build and reputation; and, must be at a cost point level that it can reasonably be replaced if lost. To keep this post short, I will jump right in and point you to the Gerber Suspension NXT and the Leatherman Wingman that meet the criteria I have reflected. You can do a Google or YouTube search on both to get a good hold on what people like or dislike; but, to go right to the point, I own both of them. Between the two, I like the Gerber Suspension the best due that all of the implements are on the exterior side of the tool and all of the implements lock into place. The Leatherman Wingman, I especially like the scissors and the box/package cutter over the Suspension. Both of these tools are not “top of the line” in their product categories; but, they are made by top-level manufacturers (Leatherman and Gerber); are specifically made with belt-clips for EDC (Every Day Carry); and, are reasonably priced (click on links below for quick review and pricing). You will not go wrong with either of these tools…
