Sounds like you need a multi-tool. Get a leatherman. Break. Return. They send you a fixed or new one. Repeat.

I'm on my second wave in 10 years.

I daily carry either a ZT 0550 or a Strider SnG.
Very handy tools.
Can't locate any pictures right now.

Here are a couple old Anza knives that started life as files. They are heavy, sturdy, carbon steel so easily resharpened in the field and have withstood decades of abuse.

The first is a Bowie and the second a camp knife. (see a pattern here? )

I should try another leatherman. I last had one in the 80's and I didn't like how the handles cut into your hand when using the pliers. It seems they have made some improvements.

I've been carrying a Gerber Curve on my keychain. It's incredible handy and small. The bottle opener gets used most often. hehe

I have the leatherman wave, I'm wanting a Charge.

An interesting and inexpensive model is the wingman. It's also smaller, but has all the features I want minus the diamond file.

Here are a few pics of what i have now. Very small collection a dozen or so knives.




Missing are my Leatherman my Gerber spring assist and my Gerber multi tool.

This is a fantasy knife my son gave me at Christmas.







I have a couple more fantasy knives I have to dig out.

I have a few bayonets two for my AK 47s one Chinese and one Russian a Vietnam era one for an early M16 I also have a couple W.W.II German daggers. I think that's it. I sold off my huge edged weapons collection a while ago. I might have more stuff in storage I have so much I forget at times what I actually still have.

I have one and it is ok for what it is. A word of warning; the blade liner-lock is not good. All mine takes is a light tap and it fails. The springs on the inside tools are better. The spring loaded pliers are cool but there is a lot of play in them. The package-opener-thing actually works well. The sicissors are good, specially after taking a 1000gr stone to them. I filed down the end of the file/measuring thing to have a small screwdriver.

I made the mistake of visiting Kershawguy's website. This thing is pretty sweet. The blemish was that mark down the blade which doesn't bother me.

Knives can be as addicting as watches, or as guns

Cool, I wasn't expecting perfection for $30. Looks like a handy back up or gift.

The model I want is the Charge TTi:



But my Wave just won't die.
