For my first multitool experience I got my Dad a Leatherman Wave for christmas and thought it was a pretty neato take on the ol' swiss army knife concept. Didn't want to spend $50 so found this guy with similar features for $25 area. Going from closed to pliers out is fairly easy with the side push action. The one handed flick ability to open is also pretty cool, but takes a little practice. I found myself having to very carefully grab one side/bar and getting the flick angle just right. The way the scissors fold in and out is a little awkward and semi dangerous, but gets the job done. Overall has been a handy medium duty tool so far. According to the Gerber tool meter I'm missing out on fun and adventure points on this guy by not having the black version. <www.gerbergear.com>
This here stabby tool is another example of looking fairly plain yet has clever design features that make it stand out in other ways. SAH stands for Safety Auto Hook so the big show is definitely the integrated cutting hook built into the handle. I've seen designs where hooks are built into the handle, but this is certainly the first time I've seen a hook that retracts back into handle. The retracting design cuts down on bulk and accidental snagging while giving a more "basic" knife appearance. To make up for the speed of an open hook design that is always ready, the auto hook is spring loaded with button on the side.
