Gerber Mini Paraframe (22-08485)

CRKT Get-A-Way Driver (9094)

Another pocket tool today. Looks pretty good as an addition to the EDC kit.

Leatherman Blast (830140)

Here's a little excerpt from a photo essay comparison I did with the Spirit a while ago:
The Blast is pure American design and execution. From the stratlingly loud click of the locks slamming home to the excessive strength of the pliers the Blast proclaims it's identity, struggling to set itself apart from the rest of it's line. There is nothing new inside the Blast, you've seen it all before. The simple clip point knife blade seen on hundreds of folders to the stereotypical box profile, the Blast is comforting in it's sameness.

In short, I like the tool a lot.

Leatherman Charge Ti (830272)

This one came to me in mid-2005, one of my first high-quality tools. I carried it for quite a time and found it be a very capable tool. Even went so far as to break the bit-driver using it when I should have been using a proper tool. Other than that I've had no problems and still think it rests close to the peak of multi-tool perfection.
