Wait... my world is coming apart at the seams.

I just realized TPS is a women -- or a gay man with Clay Aiken as a husband.

My head hurts.

Warriors and Wonders in Vancouver is now stocking the Benchmade line!
Also Daves Tactical and Surplus in New Westminster BC is getting larger lines of blades including the Strider line.
Providing more reasons to extract money from me- great.

a little off topic but any opinions out there on Multi-tools? I've had a leatherman for ages and it's starting to show it's age.
Any suggestions out there?

I used to love the Leatherman, I had both generations of Wave and a skeletool, but now I just keep a good spyder knife with a leather sheath on my duty belt for cutting belts or rope, and I keep a small rolled up tool set in a side compartment in my bag for removing plates and other tasks. I just didn't find I had many uses beyond the knives on the leatherman, and as good as the pliers are, they got beat up pretty bad unscrewing/bolting plates that are rusted on. I'd go with a cheap adjustable wrench, a small driver set with a small kit bag from Canadian Tire and it'll cost you about 20$ for the lot if you buy on sale.

Then invest if a quality blade, some come with hide/belt cutters on the blade for half the cost of a quality multi-tool.

I carry a leatherman on my belt for plates and other random things (I pulled a broken cuff key out of a handcuff lock once). I also carry a knife I got for $10 on the web. It has a good blade, a clip on the back, a window punch (haven't used that yet) and a seat belt cutter that is great for using in cells when you need to cut something off and don't want to introduce a knife or scissors to less than cooperative prisoners.

Can't remember if I responded to this or not but I have a Gerber and it is a solid knife.

Leatherman Wave or Leatherman Surge. Both are bigger and heavier than the original model, but they have the added feature of being able to open the knife blade without having to bother opening the entire tool.

That is what use. Have had it for about 5 years now. Awsome knife.

I just got this on Saturday from James McGowan himself with a custom kydex sheath.

He gave me an awesome price.

Its a little big for the belt but can be stowed away in a duty bag. He is coming out with one smaller for the belt with a good sheath.

Ill post when he send s me pics.
