hello folks,
Help me to select the multi-tool for my father. He is in Hamilton. I want to be prepared with a present for him. He adores fishing. I know that he doesn’t have any multi-tool. What brand is more recommended? I will ship the item to Hamilton. thanks

Both Leatherman or Gerber are good.

the leatherman surge is king. undisputed.

the molnar sheath has two types
this one has no elastic on the side

this one is almost the same, but has elastic, few hidden pouches, and a much bigger velcro interface

Welcome Aboard!

I stick with cheap (like you find at Harbor Freight) multi-tools, other than one I picked up that's made to work with a 1911. ($35-ish; can't think of the maker.) I think I've got two or three of the cheap ones. One of those, and the one "1911-specific" tool, live in my range bag. (If I need to do serious work, there's a small gun cleaning kit in the trunk :D. I've been known to buy a gun and take it to the range before taking it home.)

I see a couple of the guys have made some good suggestions, though. The Leatherman tool is insanely expensive, too, and I'm insanely cheap! ( :mrgreen: )

I think I bought the last cheapie at "AutoZone" for under $15.

(The "1911" tool has a bushing wrench where the standard ones have a pliers. Mine's can be used as a pliers, too.)

Anyway, there's a sticky at http://forums.buckeyefirearms.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10097 that you should have a look at - at least the first couple pages. It's not mandatory, but it may be sufficiently sleep-inducing to make you forget about buying family members gifts, and send 'em here to me :D .

Enjoy!

Look for a model that has fishing related tools. I have a cheap one that has a descaling blade and also a hook removing tool. It looks likes the Leatherman which I love.

^ I'm there with Cruiser.

I don't fish, but I love multi-tools.

For everyday life, I like a small, non-threatening and utilitarian knife, a pair of pliers, and the usual two screwdriver heads. Minimalistic, but it works for just about everything that I'd need a quick, handy tool for, with little to no weight or bulk. I'm in jeans 95% of the time, and my Leatherman Freestyle or Gerber Crucial fits in the "coin pocket" perfectly, freeing up my other pockets for other tools and uses.

I've got other, larger multitools like the Surge, but honestly, those end up staying in my kit/bag more than they are taken along.

That said, for anything specialized, it's really about the specialized tools that are commonly need for that hobby. For the AR, for example, I love my Multitasker, and despite its weight, I'll gladly put it in my pocket when I'm at an AR class.

Here's an old thread on BladeForums that may help you:

I’m not a hunter or a fisherman, but when we go camping with friends I take this multi-tool https://www.mrosupply.com/lighting/emer ... 5090_nebo/ Frankly speaking, there are not so many functions and I do not need all of them. But for my father I would like to buy this http://www.ebay.com/itm/NTSA-1998-LEATH ... SwfZ1WZK2N I want to believe that it is a high-quality item.
