Are you sure it's a PHRASECENSOREDPOSTERSHOULDKNOWBETTER. thing? If they're OK with maintainance men they're presumably not scared of the tool. Round here if you have a big, prominent multitool swinging from your belt without a need to use it, it's seen as penis substitute. It's a bit like having a 4WD off-road Landrover and only ever using it for the school run, only more pathetic because the tool is cheaper. (I gather you don't need to use your Wave because you can leave it in the truck all day.)

I carry mine on my belt with my pager, cell phone and vpn fob and not too many have complained. I had one lady do the "ohh, thats a knife!" when I was opening a box of toner to refill the printer so her and my document would print so every now and then you get the toolphobic person (I correct those people telling them that a knife is a tool not a weapon) but overall people would rather borrow it to open their tuna than complain about it.

Oh please! Brangdon:

I get enough of that phalic symbolism garbage about handguns.

Of course the people that use that argument around me tend to become tongue-tied when they realize I prefer short-barreled handguns.

Frenchy:

If you don't like bulges in your pants pockets, put it in your underpants (The front unless you want a lot of attention and people avoiding you by putting it in the back. <img src="/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />).

Oh I never said anyone was "scared". This is texas after all. People are VERY used to seeing knives, tools etc being carried even in urban areas. It's not that they are "scared" but rather that it is simpley not considered acceptable or professional.. etc etc.

A multitool is not what you carry when there is imminent need to use the tools on it (that?s where the real full sized tools come in) it?s just in case you have a use for it. So it may be feasible to leave the tool in a safe place.
BTW: Is there a thing like substitute envy? After all a lot of people envy me for having the substitute when they don?t. <img src="/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />

I guess the majority of us should stop carrying those little Altoid tin kits around with us when we go hiking then. I, for one, have never had "a need to use it". Hopefully that trend will continue. But I suppose I could always use it as your suggested substitute, should mine ever get ripped clean off by a fan belt, farm auger, wolverine bite, or something.

I am a bright color worker (computer programmer). I carry a Leatherman Charge Ti clipped in my right pocket. The clip is smallish and hard to notice.

It is wonderful! You can draw it as a one-handed pocket knife but you have all the other features.
