#16039 - 05/17/03 12:18 PM Multitool for pouch kit

I have been looking around for a tiny multitool for inclusion in the pouch sized kit that I am currently assembling. At the moment I am torn between the M2 Sebertool and the Swisstech MicroTechnician. Both are the same price at Heinnie Haynes. I am bending slightly towards the M2 Sebertool because the pliers and wire cutters look a bit more substantial and the handles look more comfytable. The advantage of the MicroTechnician is the fact that it folds up smaller. This is not really that inportant as it is only a slight difference. The other knife I will be carrying will be this mora. Does anyone have any recomendations, questions, suggestions?

why not a bigger tool with more stuff ? i know a good one cost a lot, but there are also some cheaper one's on the market, they may not have all the high-tech stuff build in to it, but you will likely get more tool for the $$$ than with the sebertech m2 or swisstech MicroTechnician. Some are even cheaper than the sebertech or swisstech tools ! If i remember ( and caculated ) correctly some SAK's in that price range has small pliers to.

Size is the biggest priority for me and as far as I know these are the smallest multitools on the market. The only reasons that I want these tools are for the pliers and wire cutters so a larger tool is not needed. These are quality, wellmade tools. I do need another knife in the kit as I already have the mora and I don't need a saw because I have a wiresaw, so I think that these tools would be the best for the job. Thanks for the input.

Ive just noticed that you considered swisstech and sebertool gear in this thread. I was also brousing Heinnie Haynes again and concidered the squirt which you also considered in that post. Did you end up getting any of those tools?

Sorry that this post is a bit of a mess.

well after that thread i saw some great gear for a bargain, so i spend over € 150... so after that i didn't have enough cash for them, but at this moment im considering a SOG Crossgrip or Leathermen Squirt P4, because they have a lot of feature's and are stronger than the seber and swisstech tools ( looks flimsy ). But the 2 days ago i lost mine key chain tool i did have <img src="images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> ( Coast micro toolbox ). Now i'm not sure weather i should save for the SOG or Leathermen or buy a new Coast microtoolbox first. And im also not sure weather i still want such a expensive tool on mine keychain. But hopefully i will go to the US in the summer in 2004 and buy one there for a exseptiable price for EDC carry ( if it cost to much im not gonna carry it for EDC ).
