In terms of time spent in my dubious company, this mid-sized multi-tool beats the others out by a factor of thousands. I'm never without it unless I'm in church, in an airplane, or in bed. I've used it to clean trout, cut frantic saddlehorses free of barbwire tangles, perform field repairs on hunting rifles, open cans of pork and beans, pull cactus spines from horses, dogs, and people, skin elk, and slice apples for my kids. My most-used features are the pliers and the blade, followed by the screwdrivers. I've cut a lot of big game tags with the scissors, and once or twice even the wood/metal file has saved the day. I feel undressed without it. Maybe I should go buy an extra—I'd hate to loose mine and have to go without. Just think what folks would say, me walking around without my Leatherman on.
