Thanks OP!

was waiting for these to go on sale. To bad they don't carry the Surge, guess the Wave will do.

Is the Ti worth the extra $$$?

I'd say if you are someone that only carries a multi tool and not a tool+knife. the Charge (Ti) with the 154cm blade is a potential option. However, knife snobs over play the crappiness of 420HC steel. It's perfectly adequate and sharpens to a great edge. it does require more frequent resharpening. At the end of the day, both work fine. don't over think it.

I actually bought a 154cm blade for the standard wave (a charge blade) but I regret it. I'd probably have been better off upgrading my skeletool, which I actually use more as a knife than a multi-tool.

Leatherman prices have gone up, but they make a great product, in the US, and support it. $71 for a wave is a solid price.

i own a couple of benchmade and spyderco knives but don't want to carry multiple tools when i'm out on the fields.

Hows the comfort and feel of the tti and wave. If i'm gonna fork out the money for the tti i got make sure its more comfortable than the wave.

I see that my local Dicks carries the wave but not charge.

I have just about every Leatherman... except the charge. So I can't help you. I understand it's a bit more comfortable because of the additional scales. The wave isn't real comfortable as a knife and I've given myself many a blood blister with the pliers. always wear gloves now. That's why I regret the 154cm impulse upgrade to the knife. Also, I upgraded the pliers to Rebar pliers, but that's neither here nor their in terms of blade quality or comfort. That said, I don't find the wave impossible to use for most knife task, it just isn't enjoyable.

I'm with you, I only carry one knife or multi-tool. Usually it's a Freestyle or Skeletool unless I know I'm doing work, then it's a Wave or similar. I think the freestyle, especially, is a good tool as a knife (with bonus pliers) the skeletool is almost as good with more of a multi-tool aspect.

Personally, I like the Rebar more than the wave. I think it's more comfortable and you can sort of access the knife easily (almost one handed if you can open the pliers handle 1/4). it's lighter as well. but no scissors unless you get the knifeless model. An option is to buy both and select the tools you need... but that voids the warranty.

I'd go with a sog for any kind of medium to heavy field use... Leatherman and other so called quality multi tools get messed up by the overly tight tolerances when sand and other small grainy bitts get in there. additionally I've found that sog doesn't break so easily

No Super Tool 300 Love? I carry the Skeletool daily @ work because it works better than my Sidekick, my Super Tool 300 is just way to big to carry as an EDC, I learnt that the hard way. Keep that in my glove box when you need a tough tool.

I am a big spydie guy, also have the leatherman wave, charge and al. The wave is the sweet spot, charge is not worth the premium imo. Only slightly better quaility but still not as good as Victorinox. The best mutitool is the swisstool spirit. With that said, nothing beats a dedicated knife when you need a knife. Mutitool is convenient but when I have the choice I usually reach for a dedicated screwdriver (longer reach) or knife. I use the pliers and file the most on a multitool.

Funny the swisstool X, I have, wreaks of quality, but it's not as durable or functional as the Leatherman. the tools are soft steel. I like it, it's pretty and it definitely isn't worthless, but it's not quite Leatherman functionality. I think people love the spring click on the swisstool lock. sometimes I open it just to hear it. seriously, it sounds that nice.

My last two multis have been Gerber. Only bought the second one because airport security scarfed the first one. I like the way the pliers slide out, pretty much every operation is one handed.
