So, it's late, I'm tired, and I'll try not to ramble (no promises though). Long story short: A while back I thought about how I keep needing a screw driver, saw, etc.. when it's really a pain in the butt to stop what I'm doing to go get into my tools. For the past 20 years or so I've only ever carried a multitool via belt pouch, when I knew I'd need it that day. Otherwise I've only carried a stout single blade folder that would now be classified as a "tactical/tacticool" toy. To lend a bit of perspective, my last edc was a ZT0301st. She's a beast that can handle anything...or so I thought. I then started taking into account how I was lugging around a 1/2lb of titanium that was fairly worthless on phillips head screws, 2in diameter branches, and such. So, I looked to leatherman, after a master electrician friend of mine said that he would never carry anything except his wave. I now have a leatherman charge ti (not tti) with the 154cm blade. I love it...I do, but... At present, I cannot carry anything on my belt, it has to be in pocket...and I can only carry 1 tool/knife whatever. These are my requirements. So you're probably wondering what the problem is, considering I carry my charge via the pocket clip. Well...I'm use to having a primary folder; and while the leatherman is wonderful, and similarly sized to what I'm use to, she's a jack of all trades but master of none, especially a hearty blade. I just can't seem to push my charge as hard as I would one of my ZT's or even an old buck 110. I do love my charge; I DO. I guess I'm really just trying to ask 1) Does anybody else use their multitool as their only edc knife blade? 2) If anybody's abused the knife blade on their charge/wave...how did it hold up? .... this is basically me trying to convince myself that the knife/linerlock/pivot on the charge is up for some heavy duty, or not... So...help please?! Thanks in advance guys. This is my first post here I think, I was a kai forum junky, but sadly that's gone now. So now I'll just bug you guys, lol. Be well, and stay warm!
