I have tried a number of multi tools. They all work in a pinch. However, the one item that I use more than any other and that is why I added one to my key ring, is an alan wrench key to remove my Really Right Stuff L bracket. I shoot with a non pro sized camera and occasionally shoot with a battery grip. The L bracket does not fit on the camera when I add the grip. Therefore, I need to remove the bracket frequently. I have not found any multi tool that has an alan wrench as part of the tool set. I may look for the Swiss Army Cybertool mentioned above! The multi tool is a great thing to have, but I never travel without my alan wrench. Happy searching.
Jim

That's what's neat about my Cybertool. If I need to remove, or tighten, the A-S plate, it has an allen head.

I keep a Swiss Army 'camping' model in my bag, and I have a Leatherman micra on my keychain that lives on my belt loop at all times. It is the small model that has scissors instead of pliers.

Leatherman wave all the way! Preferably the original model, with me on camera outings and everyday for work. Bless the 25 yr warranty!

I EDC a SOG Aegis, so thats my main knife. When I'm fishing, my Leatherman Fuse comes with me. When I'm camping, my ESEE-3 comes with. Can't wait for the ESEE-3F to come out. That will be my new EDC knife.

Victorinox Swiss Army Cybertool 34 (external link). Even includes an Allen wrench that fits the typical A-S anchor bolt.

Yup, I have two of these. That allen key has been very useful in the past.

I can personally recommend any blade from Besh Knives (external link) I have one of his Spec 1 Mini's and it has served me well at home, in Iraq and in Afghanistan.

If what the OP is looking for is a clean, sharp simple and above all else strong blade, these simply cannot be beaten.

If only we can CCW up here... ;)

My EDC is a Small Sebenza, a classy and "non-threatening" folder. It's compact, inconspicuous, and if you take care of it properly, will cut like butter.

For multitools, I also recommend the Leatherman Wave.

This thread makes me wanna take pics of my EDC gear. :D

I use a Microtech Halo. It's a knife designed with amatuer photographers in mind.

Unfortunately, auto knifes are banned in Canada. :(

And you already know how I feel about no CCW'ing... :mad:
