Essential Gear | Leatherman Wave

There are two types of people in this world. Those that carry a multi tool and those who do not. If you carry one, you will realize how important it is. My multi tool of choice is the Leatherman Wave

The Wave has several features. Here are my favorites:

  • rounded handles to protect hands from edges
  • pliers 
  • saw
  • file
  • coarse blade
  • straight edge blade
  • scissors
  • small screw driver.
I use the file to sharpen hooks, the pliers to grab onto tiny objects I can't pick up, the saw to cut branches and firewood and to remove exposed tree roots, small screw driver to repair sunglasses. The blades are used to cut a variety of objects from rope, fishing line, sausage, and cheeses. Scissors to cut threads hanging from gear.

If you carry a Leatherman Wave you will find that you may use it up to a dozen times a day. Whereas if you did not carry it you would  be screwed. Sure there is a bottle opener inside but using the hinge of the folded took will pop the cap of any beer if done right and will gain you cred from the crowd.

Get yourself a Wave.
