    Default Most used feature

    Just as a curiosity, no right or wrong answer;


    What is the feature/tool on your multitool that you use the most?
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    I use the pliers and wire cutter the most, followed by the screw drivers.

    If we classify the Swiss Army Knife as a multitool, I use the bottle opener more then anything. I have it sitting on my desk, and whenever I want a beer, I use it to pop one open.

    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?

    I use the can opener and pliers followed by the wood saw.

    When working - screw drivers.

    When hiking - saw.

    When camping - pliers.

    After reading this thread and realizing that I am the only one that mentioned bottle opener, I now feel like an alcoholic.

    I'm too lazy to use the bottle opener, I just pop the cap off using the multi-tool as a lever and my finger as a fulcrum.

    Psst..... I use twist tops. Once you've had a few, they are easier to open!

    Pliers on a MT. Scissors on my SAK. It's unbelievable how good the scissors are on my SAK Classic! And many many times the pliers on my MT has saved the day (usually at work- it's rare I've found a use for a MT in the woods).

    Well, since it spends more time put away than in actual use, I'd have to say the most used feature is the foldyness.

    I purchased a SOG PowerAssist utility knife a couple years ago.

    The feature I use the most, sadly to say (since I left my EMT job) would have to be the bottle opener.
