the Leathermans are good pocket utility tools, but i prefer the Gerber brand of pocket utility tools. i usually keep one in each of my trucks, for JIC!

Had a surge and loved it, left in on a job site. Thats the bad part of having a black tool. I also have two MUTs I now carry. Really good tools very handy to have.

I also have a SOG Paratool, it is slightly smaller than the leatherman so is nicer to pocket carry but it opens in an unconventional way and has to be almost completely opend to access the knives and other tools so now I leave that at home because it's much quicker to flip a blade out of the Leatherman

I've had the original tool for about 16 years and it works like new. Here recently I picked up a MUT and cannot say a bad thing about. My thumb can though after it stopped bleeding. The blades are really sharp.

I've still got the Leatherman I carried while in the service - it now resides in my range bag. I also have the skeletool that I keep in my bug out bag.

Me too, I prefer the Gerber. I have Leatherman's too and like them a lot, but the Gerbers have the open side (where the tools pivot out of) on the inside when used. On the Leathermans, it's open on the outside when used and isn't too friendly on the hands when gripping on it.

This is why I actually prefer the Leatherman, I find myself getting out knives and screwdrivers more than using the pliers so I find it handier on the outside. Do all the Gerber pliers slide out the end or do some fold open? I have only seen the slide outs

i think they make different types of the Gerber. both mine are the slide out design and i like them because of that. i too like the tools on the inside vs. the outside. but that's just a personal preference.
