Leatherman Wave

In looking for a multitool my focus was on outdoor use more than around the house and every day use. I wanted something that would be useful for bushcraft but would still serve me day to day when I needed a screw driver or a pair of pliers.  The wave had the best of both worlds.  Personally I do not like partially serrated blades on knives or multitools.  In the wave I was able to have the best of both worlds.  As seen below there is a fully serrated blade for cutting rope or cordage.  It is on the same side as the diamond file which has been used for everything from making notches in wood and traps, to my wife fixing her fingernails in the car with the fine file on the way to a dance hall on a Saturday night.

Below you see the standard blade which is a great blade for cutting and carving, it will fillet a fish or skin out a deer or make a feather stick.  The small saw has been more useful than I thought it would be. I have used it to make traps and cut small branches for tent stakes and in and around the yard for taking down small limbs.

The pliers are very functional and as many of us know its always great to have a pair of needle nose pliers handy.

Ah the little tools.  I like the scissors they are good for lots of little tasks but are not what i would call heavy duty.  There is a large flat screwdriver which can be used as a small pry bar.  The standard swappable screwdrivers a nothing special but the real gem is the tiny flat head and philips head screwdriver.  As someone who wears glasses its wonderful to be able to repair or tighten the screws on my glasses out in the bush or even at work.  The can opener/bottle opener is great at its intended job and also throws wonderful sparks off of a Ferro rod.
