    I will stick with my Surge...gets used almost daily and the blades are great for cutting plastic strap bands on timber.
    I don't like the lock knife law as it tars all for the acts of the very few and would like to know how many people visit A&E due to non locking knife injuries.
    Leatherman have been my go to multi tool for close on 20 years, the quality is superb so for some this one might be a good fit, just not me.

    Waterproof version? Leatherman makes a water-soluble version as well? Mighty tastey.

    Thanks for the review. I can see buying 2 of them. One for me and one that rides in my suitcase.
    The only sure way that I know to prevent anything from ever breaking again on a trip in my life.

    I'm hopefully picking up my 3 Leatherman tools tomorrow. I've ordered the Rebar, Signal and Micra. But the version I have ordered, has two blades with it

    I've got Micra as EDC in my pocket and Wingman in the backpack. Is Rebar really that better than Wingman or Sidekick? The price is significantly higher. Unfortunately I don't have much to spend on my hobby and often buy stuff only when I find discounts at www.picodi.com/uk/ or elswhere. I couldn't find any discounted Rebars so far

    Probably a stupid question but wouldn't the locking saw blade on this be just as illegal for EDC as a locking knife blade?

    That would be my understanding.

    Mine too, as a saw blade is a blade, and it locks.

    Such has always been the way with British law. Punish the many for the acts of the few. Happens all the time. As I've said before on this site, when I was a wee fella, we all carried pen-knives from when we were knee-high to a grasshopper. It was just one of those things you always had on you, like a packet of sweets, a snotty hankie and a piece of hairy string.

    Strangely enough, although we fell out and fought all the time, like kids do, I never remember anyone pulling out their knife to threaten or attack anyone --ever. It wouldn't have even crossed our minds. Nowadays, they'll knife someone for "looking at them in a funny way". But, of course the fault lies with the knives themselves and not with the parents who've brought up a generation of kids without any discipline, in a world were no-one is allowed to lay a finger on them and they think they can do whatever they like, without any comeback.
