  1. The Leatherman Wave is nice, no doubt about it. I, however, purchased the Leatherman Crunch. I liked it because of the locking pliers that are somewhat like vice grips. The only beef I have with it is that it takes 2 hands to put the pliers into use. That’s the one thing going for the Gerber multi-tools, the “flick-open” design makes deployment simple.

  2. Oh yes, the Crunch, that plumber tool. Funny thing – the first time I saw it in action was in Nairobi! An awesome mechanism. And it looks heavy – but its much lighter than the Wave, ama? What do you do with it?

    I used to have a PST only, but then someone showed me the Wave with its rounded handles and I was instantly hooked. And just two days ago, I couldn’t resist any longer and ordered the new Wave 2004, though I even thought about waiting for the Leatherman Surge. In any case – nice toys :-)
    Maybe you’ve already seen it, but please make sure not to miss out this detailed review
