Many experts by the nature of their occupations urgently need many instruments as working tools, however, it is not always possible to have at hand a lot of large and heavy objects, but multitools usually weigh between 50g and are divided into: trinkets, daily use, and computer and professional. By the same token, and the number of tools and functions inherent in the multitool a particular model varies. At first glance it may seem that there is no difference between the army and multitool knife, but there is one fundamental difference – prominent pliers head, which remains visible and not hidden in the hollow handle. In other words a knife – should it be an army knife, a penknife, or a tourist one – remains a knife, but with additional tools and multitool is a fully valid tool from the start, and just then it is everything else.
Having it in the pocket, backpack or in the glove compartment of the car not only warms the soul, but often really helps out the owner.
You should approach to the choice of multi-tools knowingly and competently. If your need is only an all-purpose subject at hand that can be universally used fromtime to time, and not a full-featured ” jack of all trades instrument”, that is to choose from miniature pendant type models. Such microtool is certainly not in a position to fully replace the individual household tools – and there is nothing to argue about – but it promises to be the most useful tool in an urban settings and for minor repairs of equipment and computers.
Multitools of American company Gerber from Bear Grylls products line are stylish, fashionable and very courageously looking. Of course, just like all big-name products they are made of good-quality materials, thoroughly thought through and perfectly cope with their tasks. As a rule,at the production of working parts corrosion-resistant alloy steel is used, and handles have a rubberized finish for a comfortable grip, excluding slip from moisture. Pretty often Gerber multitool come completed with a knife, and together make a beautiful ensemble called ‘Gerber Bear Grylls survival kit’.
Designers of Ganzo company give a good account of themselves in the production of both knives and multitools. Many users of this brand mention quality, affordable price and versatility. Truly “workhorses” in an assortment of multi-tools are presented by Ganzo.
It is important to note that all the tools are made entirely of 440C stainless steel, rarely high-quality durable plastic is chosen as a material for handle panels. Almost all the models look very ascetic – nothing superfluous, only the most necessary things – a metal “skeleton” that can be transformed into pliers, knife, saw, scissors, rasp, screwdrivers of different types and sizes, ruler and many others. And believe me, each design is completed, full-fledged, graceful, strong and reliable.
