If you don't mind the weight, it's highly recommended. Especially if you get a multi-tool that allows quick access to the knife. I've been carrying a leatherman for so long that it's like an extension of my body, and I feel naked without it.

I've carried my Gerber Pro Scout for about 10 years. Not wearing it is like forgetting my watch. Ya feel naked.

I predict very shortly I will begin carrying a Leatherman Juice CS4. I carry a Buck Bantam folding knife or an Ontario Rat 1 folding knife (depending on what I am doing that day) as my EDC knife. If I need anything more durable than the Leatherman Juice CS4, then I'll just go to my garage and get the tools I need.

I use the Gerber multi. The biggest benefit being the spring loaded pliers and nice locking on the peripherals. Being cheap to I replace is a bonus.

I carry this on my belt everyday. http://www.sogknives.com/powerassist-satin.html I swapped out the V-cut blade for a pair of scissors. The powerassist blades open easily with just your thumb.

The only one I've ever owned I got free one year from the NRA, so I have nothing to compare it to. All I can say about it is the little screwdrivers won't take much torque before their mounts look like they are going to blow apart.

Is that typical? I rarely use it though, carry it in my lunch bucket on the rare occasion I need to access the backplane of a MUX or whatever.[/quote]

In general no, the ones I have had have taken quite a beating. I snapped one flat head screwdriver prying on a rock I was looking at outside over the winter, but I think it snapped due to the extreme cold making the metal brittle at the time (I know it was under 10F) because I know I've put more force on it in the past during the summer doing the same thing. On the same day my earphones I wear sometimes to listen to podcasts were like sticks coming out of my ears the wires had become so stiff due to the cold that day.

I ended up winning a gift certificate to a store I had no interest in really buying much of anything from so I ended up getting a Charge and a MUT because I didn't really see anything else I was interested in. I like both but I definitely see using the Charge far more than the MUT. I believe the MUT will live on my shop wall next to the vise and barrel snakes. The charge is definitely superior to the wave in every way and the Charge is my new favorite, however, I still think the Charge is priced way too high when considering the difference between the two. The case that the charge comes with fucking sucks when compared to the one that the MUT or the Wave comes with.

For those that own either the Charge or the Wave here's a tip there is a "secret" lanyard ring built in to the tool.

I personally always put a paracord key fob on this secret ring which hangs outside the velcro case I use for my MT's on my belt. The fob allows me to just grab and yank the tool out of it's holster almost instantly, so I don't have to mess with the strap or anything which I like. It's easy to feel for and grab without having to actually look.
