I've got one or two cheap leatherman knockoffs which have proven themselves to be quite handy at times, but are limited by their lack of quality. It can be very handy to have something on your person to deal with simple issues which may arise rather than fumbling around in the boat's toolbox.
I'm looking to purchase a high quality multitool, either one of the Leatherman models (either the Charge, Wave or Surge) or one of the Victorinox Swisstool models (either the Spirit or X) . I'll need to take a closer look at all of these at one of the local shops
Do you have the wave? If so how do you like it?
