Leatherman Crunch (68010101K)

The Crunch is one of the cooler multi-tool designs. It packs an interesting mechanism into a very small size.

Plus, it's pretty fun to open and close with one hand.

Boker Magnum "Cat-Eye"

This is one of the few, if only, off-brand folders I have. It doesn't really even have a model name, just a faceless number in the Boker catalog (which I can't find right now but will update when I do.)

I bought it from a Bass Pro shops several years ago. It was the first knife I purchased with one of my own paychecks. I remember being torn between it and one of those Beretta folders with the cut-out sections in the blade. What made up my mind was the small price discrepancy; I think this one was $19.99, fully $5 less than the Beretta. Seems so expensive for what I got now, with all the great bargains out there. But it worked for me and I never had any complaints, so I do suppose I got my money's worth.

Gerber Multi-Plier 600 Pro Scout (07563) and Multi-Plier 600 Black Oxide (07550G)

The Pro Scout:

The MP600 Black Oxide: This model also features a Hawkbillish main blade and replaceable wire-cutters.

Wenger Swiss Clipper (16959)

This is probably the most used EDC item I have.

Victorinox Swiss Tool Spirit (53800)

This is my EDC multi-tool. The pocket clip is an aftermarket modification by a most excellent forum member from the forums.

With the pocket clip it's pretty much the perfect tool. I really can't imagine carrying anything else.

Gerber Bolt Action (7021)

This is another Blackie Collins design. It uses a sliding bolt to lock the blade open, a very strong lock. Apparently they also produced a longer, skinnier model called the Fisherman as well as an Orange handled serrated Fisherman called the Rescue. Meyerco also released a version later on the was partially serrated and had a thumbstud.

I like it, very simple and functional.
