    This!

    Who has one and how much do you love it? My roommate went psycho on me late at night last week and managed to demolish my old Gerber (she spiked it into the kitchen floor like a football) so i replaced it with a Leatherman Super Tool 300 (and am now working on getting her to compensate me for the damaged tool that i've had since 1995)

    hahaha, i don't get into it too much. i know how some guys are with their knives (my dad in particular) but it does what i need it to do. Meanwhile the generic name for any multi-tool is a "leatherman" regardless of its manufacturer. icon_wink.gif

    The generic name for multi-tool is "pliers."

    I have a Leatherman (this I just fount out this very instant). I took a cruise a couple years ago and the previous guests of my stateroom left it behind in one of the nightstand drawers. I was like yay free knife thing. I just now because of the thread checked it to see if it was a Leatherman and it was.

    I find it amusing/odd that Swiss Army knives have USB flash drives now. I hope Leatherman tools don't go down that route. icon_lol.gif

    First, clever double entendre. Second, why are so many of your roommates psychos, third I've only had Swiss Army knives since I was a kid.

    Sounds like you don't get a long with your roommate at all.

    I have one! Essential if you are a hiker and camper....or love to get lost in woods and survive on sea kelp!

    i do actually. but she's on a small pharmacy and is working on a Quentin Tarantino movie right now where, apparently, she gets yelled at all day long. When she comes home at 1am she claims she is delirious as if that excuses her behavior.

    The incident that resulted in the damaged item was over the "mess" that i had left in the kitchen one night (the "mess" was two forks in the sink, a single clean tupperware on the counter and the multitool).

    For those wondering about my taste in roommates, all three had something in common. I eventually met them all through my involvement in background acting.

    yeah, but anyway back on point. I've already found use for my new leatherman. Probably will start wearing it on my belt again now that i actually work a job that makes it useful (as opposed to my old desk job)

    Those come in very handy, especially in my trade as a diesel mechanic.

    that's something i need to learn more about. I know plenty about gasoline engines but i've never tinkered with diesel. I mean, i know the differences and how diesel works. I've just never had one to work on icon_confused.gif

    I have tried using a Leatherman, but they just don't feel right in my hand. I pack with a small pair of pliers and a Swiss Army knife. Day to day it is just the knife.

    well it depends which model. there are several, and different sizes. my ST300, opened up, is about 7" long, the length of an average pair of pliers. working with the tools is all about remembering to close it with the tool out if you're doing a lengthy task. But they're not right for everyone either. Some people are served better with other tools or combinations thereof.

    Though that harness is a tad hideous, I'd still love to manhandle him and give him a good skullfucking.

    i have one that i use on the boat from time to time, but, i prefer using my rather extensive selection of regular tools. as a boat owner one has to be prepared for almost anything. on a side note, am i the only one on this site that owns a boat? i'd love to hear from other RJers that own/enjoy boating.

    i grew up on boats for the most part. Hardly hi-end cruisers, but my dad had a deep-V robalo when i was younger. I stopped going out with him on it when he began to madly enforce his rule of being required to fish if you went out. I just liked the atmosphere and serenity of being on a boat out in the marsh and he couldn't understand that.

    pretty much. Like i said, heheh, i know the operation theory. The use of compression ignition as opposed to spark ignition, etc. I've just never had the opportunity to actually wrench on an oil-burner before. And by my rules, i can't claim to be "capable" unless i've actually proven myself thus. icon_smile.gif

    I could show you what I know, but we only work in tight little underwear and steel-toe boots here. icon_cool.gif
