    Username Post: Best multi-tool for electrician        (Topic#921965)
    04-17-12 11:42.59 - Post#2462534    


    Not trying to troll here, I'm just looking for pointers for the best multi-tool for a gift to my clients. My clients are networkers, so I mentioned electricians to give you an idea of the usage. I'm interested in the best quality and utility, not the cheapest. I want to impress. I'm going to have them individually laser engraved afterwards.

    I've no past experience outside of other people's Leatherman and my Swiss Army knives. I am into knives, folders, and sharpening so I lean towards blade design and metallurgy.

    Any pointers you could offer would be great!

    Thanks in advance! :-)

    Victorinox Spirit or Leatherman Juice S2 if you want something smaller. Both are great in office settings

    Don't really know your focus. Is it about practical use, design or functionality, price, size, money? If its about giving something useful and not too big you might go for a Skeletool. If its design first then the Spirit. If you want a balance in design/practical/price I believe nothing beats the Wave. And for a better looker a Chartge tti. I think the Spirit isbasically too big, but it looks and feels like a million dollar. I and many others apreciate and prefer the understated charm of the Wave. The thing is all about what you want to tell them.

    Well - networking ain't the same as being a sparkie.

    I used to carry an original LM PST when I worked at Uni. I rember using it to do some maintenance when the Apple tekkie's tools wouldn't reach far enough.

    The needlenose pliers and phillips head on the original LM Wave are my most used tools
    I'm paranoid only cause everyone's out to get me!

    I reckon a Leatherman Wave, or maybe a Surge, would be ideal for impressing the receivers ~ even better in a nice black leather sheath, (maybe with the penlight for that extra special touch - LM has a "gift set" available, packed in a tin..).

    Especially when cost isn't an issue..

    Leatherman has a wire stripper verison of the squirt. ES4 is the new model name.
