    I always have a Swiss in my daypack. I use it for everything and try to keep my Outdoor Edge for all the critter cutting. I have cleaned a lot of elk and deer with the Swiss but mine doesn't have the saw and it's a heck of a long reach for the wind pipe.

    You make a holder and use the knife, rotating the plastic bottle, you turn and cut thin continuous strip.

    Get a fair bit of waterproof lashing material.

    Better than a butter knife I guess.

    Guess that's what I get for traveling with no checked baggage!
    If I want my "Gerber" when I go to Kodiak, I have to mail it up and mail it back home. LOL!

    What happened to the good old-fashioned monkey wrench?

    We went to get a 14 foot offset disc. We got everything lined up, then realized we didn't have a clevis pin. Fortunately, there was a Crescent wrench in the tractor that would fit into the oblong worn drawbar hole.
    Worked like a champ and saved us at least an hour!

    Not really a tool you want to use in a "live" breaker box! LOL!
    ...but I have done "some" electrical work with a multi-tool.

    I despise them, but I keep some around.
    I keep a set of "Channel-Loc" pliers on my loading bench. I use them to lock dies into the press.
    A Crescent is an abomination to a mechanic, but it's almost a necessity to keep on a tractor or in a farm truck tool box.
    Kinda like Forrest Gumps box of chocolates!
    "Ya nevuh know wha'cha gonna need!"

    My old hands have been so beat up I have a hard time opening screw cap bottles. Bought a cheap set of "food grade" Channel Locs to keep in the kitchen. Work great for all kinds of stuff, like pulling hot cookie sheets out of the oven!

    This is the tool I'm currently carrying. It's a Gerber "Diesel" model.

    Crescent wrenches and Channel-Locs are plumbers tools, not mechanics. Things will bloody knuckles used on tight/rusted nuts and bolts.

    I have a SAK and a Leatherman Wave, the Wave gets more general purpose use, the SAK for delicate around the house stuff like cutting out slivers. Both have their place.

    To the original post, since when does need matter anyway? 😎
