THE full-size multi-tool to get
This is the one I have. Although they cost a pretty penny, you will not be disappointed. All the quality of their usual Swiss Army Knives is also in this tool.Note that this is the full size model, not the Spirit. X indicates it has a scissors instead of a serrated blade. (they both have plain edged blades) Personally, I can't see choosing the serrated blade over scissors unless you're a sailer or something.One of the reasons I like this so much is that all the tools, except the pliers, are accessible with the tool closed, so it doesn't take forever to find what you're looking for, like some of the Leatherman tools, which have tools on both sides of the handles. Also, all the tools lock, with a clever mechanism.One thing you should be aware of is that this is a HEAVY tool. Plan on carrying it in the included belt pouch, as it is way too heavy for pants pocket carry. It is also pretty big, so choose this only if you're willing to carry something a bit heavy on your belt.
