    Default Feedback on leatherman Wingman

    I know someone here has one.

    How has it done for durability, capability, edge holding?

    The Gerber that I carried in the Jeep for 15 years has disappeared and needs a replacement and I am not paying $70 for another Gerber.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    Ok. Nothing special. No locks for tools or blades. I have it and I use it for fishing. Wouldnt recommended it for harder use.

    everyone needs a wingman
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Then don't spend $70 on a gerber. Amazon has several under $70 and some as low as $25. Don't forget, orders over $35 is free shipping!

    I have the Wave for a reason the two best blades are on the outside without having to open the pliers. To me it's all about ease of use as I yank it out of the carry case some 5x a day in my job.

    Good point.....I don't use Multi tools much, they ride in a couple of vehicles....but I can see this as an advantage.
    Thanks for the insight.

    I have a Wave. I like it. Never really carried anything else so I can not really compare it but I do like it. Got it as a safety award from work about 5 or 6 years ago. I carry it, either on my belt or in my vehicle most all the time.

    Do you have any pawn shops in your area? I generally find multitools of all sorts much more affordable. Many times in new condition. I don't think I've ever spent more than 25.

    +1 on the pawn shop and the wave.

    I like the Skeletool CX, its my EDC.

    I like the reversible bit and with the second bit hidden away that provides 4 options. its not over bulky due to less "Tools" but at the same time it has a solid core of what I need through the day. You can also purchase a bit set that has a carrier for the skele too IRC, but I'm fine with the two bits myself.

    The Wingman is a good tool for the money but my EDC is the Rebar. Big step up for not a whole lot more money.
