I am a fan of Leatherman and have taken to carrying either a Wingman or Surge dependant on the occasion and I seem to use one or the other of them every time I am out. Yes, I know they both have locking blades so are not UK High street carry legal, however I would like to think I can justify possession of one of them when I am in a Landrover with two Labradors, 300kgs of corn and a bird feeder in the back. Actually, just being in a Landrover is probably a good enough reason :)

So, anyone else carry a multi tool?

Swiss Army Knife, has most of the tools I ever need (without recourse to the van full I drive around in ) and no arguments about legality.
I have several and one is in my pocket 95% of the time

Whilst I don't use one for EDC my Leatherman Wave plus additional drive bits accompany me to the range and reloading shed every time. It's my go to tool for stripping down firearms, setting up scopes, adjusting reloading dies etc. and in 8 years service it has run excellently. No bits have snapped, the pliers Jaws are square and it hasn't rusted. It's a good quality tool which will no doubt last me many more years to come.

I carry a custom leatherman juice. Scissors but no blade. I then carry either a spydie ukpk, leaf or broker nano 42 depending on space or fear of confiscation

I've had leatherman and Gerber, but currently have an SOG which I like for the 1/4" drive. Picked it up at a very good price from an American PX.
As previously said, I don't carry it all the time due to the locking blade, but I could swap the blade for another function if I sourced one from the states.
