Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Anyone recommend a multitool that functions really well as a knife? I'm looking for something ideally in the 2.25-4" blade length range, deploys easily one handed, locks open, carries conveniently in pocket. I've disliked sheaths, yet, if a good enough tool exists, I would consider a well designed sheath. Deployment is the issue: I'm asking about a blade deployment much closer to a Spyderco than an Opinel. Hell, I'd be interested in one with an Emerson type wave feature. I'd like a blade fairly centered in a package that is reasonably ergonomic as well. I'm also interested in a keychain MT with a good knife. I lost a Gerber Dime, that had two good blades at a sweet tradeoff for size and weight. However they did not deploy easily. If the BL:OAL/OAW ratios are practical, .75" or even some kind of snaggletooth like the Dime is interesting. Some features I prefer: Leatherman style vs SAK or case. A small pair of scissors. A few different screwdrivers. Decent tweezers. File. I think a needlenose Vise Grip is one of the handiest things I reach for when my full toolbox is next to me, so I imagine that would be my favorite option for the centerpiece of a MT. I've owned and handled great multitools but on most, the knife is imo an afterthought. I'm interested in a great EDC knife which has a couple well designed practical tools as well.
