    i got a leatherman titanium charge xti for christmas, however the locking mechanism doesnt work so i need to return it. while at the mall the other dayi was going to see if the local store carries leatherman and they didnt, because they belive that the leathermans were breaking to often for it to be carried any longer, so they stopped offering them. through research i have come to 3 of the best choices that allow the tools to be accessed while the pliers are closed, these are the

    -Victorinox Swiss Tool ($80)
    -Leatherman New Wave ($70)
    -Leatherman Titanim Charge XTi ($90)

    -the swiss tool has all of the tools the other ones have except the blades are not one hand opening, and doesnt have the interchangeable bits and lifetime warrenty
    -the Wave has less tools over all, and doesnt have the harder blade, but costs the least
    -the charge has all of the tools, and has 154 cm steel, but is a newer tool and the reliability hasnt been tested


    both leathermans have 25 year warrenty

    i love the gerbers but the only 2 that have the tools available while the pliers are out dont fit my hands well, i do however like the replacable saw and wirecutters

    Everyone i know who really wails on their stuff swears by the Victorinox. My Wave has been getting pretty loose, i'll be looking for a Swiss Army multi soon.
