Our favorite tool to use daily

With the kind of daily work I do, there are so many things that require a little handy tool. So my husband bought me a Leatherman Skeletool CX for my birthday. Since then I have used it often because it is good, has 7 frequently used tools as below:
  1. Needlenose/ Regular Pliers
  2. Hard-wire Cutters
  3. Large Bit Driver
  4. Wire Cutters
  5. 154CM Knife
  6. Bottle Opener/Carabiner

To be honest, I have never thought a multi-tool would be so useful, but I was proven wrong since. While I am happy with the small tool, my hubby stays happy with his bigger and more pro Charge TTi, a titanium model also from Leatherman with many more tools. He said that his multi-tool has the best blade even when being compared to a real knife. And by saying real knives, he meant those heavy duty and extremely sharp survival knives. That is quite amazing for such a little tool it is. The kind of things a man does daily, he definitely needs a tool of this quality. He also uses it to complete some work around the house, too.

Just for your interest, here is what the Charge has:
  1. Needlenose Pliers
  2. Regular Pliers
  3. Hard-wire Cutters
  4. Wire Cutters
  5. Crimper
  6. Wire Stripper
  7. S30V Knife
  8. 420HC Serrated Knife
  9. Saw
  10. Spring-action Scissors
  11. Cutting Hook
  12. Ruler (8 in | 19 cm)
  13. Can Opener
  14. Bottle Opener
  15. Wood/Metal File
  16. Diamond-coated File
  17. Large Bit Driver
  18. Small Bit Driver
  19. Medium Screwdriver

Though having lots of tools built into one single unit, the company still manage to keep the size and weight down to minimum as many pieces of tools act as more than one or two tools themselves.
