The Leatherman Micra, swathed in robust Stainless Steel, emerges as an invaluable ally for those in the military and first responder domains. I like the compact dimensions (9.5 x 5.3 x 0.39 inches) and feather-light weight (1.8 ounces), the Micra is not merely a tool but a tactical asset. Crafted by the renowned LEATHERMAN brand, this mini-tool is a manifestation of practicality and durability.

With its key ring attachment, the Micra isn’t just a tool in your pocket; it’s a constant companion, always within reach, ready to work, and never to be lost. Whether tucked into pockets, fanny packs, or attached to keychains, the Micra epitomizes practicality for those who navigate the unpredictable terrains of the military and emergency response domains.

I’ve purchased several Victorinox Swiss Army Knives and this one is by far my favorite. I’ve had it for over ten years and it is still going strong. My one complaint in general with buying pocket knives is that you always end up with at least one tool that you don’t need and at least one tool that you wish you had.

The Victorinox Swiss Army Super Tinker Pocket Knife has 3 tools in its back, 2 of which I never really use. One of those is the hook thing. I think you can use it to hook on to a piece of wire that is wrapped around something heavy then you use the rest of the knife as a handle. Haven’t had the opportunity yet. The other is the sharp thing with the eyelet. Has something to do with being able to work with leather, I think. Haven’t had the opportunity. The other tools all come in very handy although I wish the phillips screwdriver was more conveniently located.


I own numerous Leatherman multitools including the Mini, Pulse, PST, Juice S2, Juice SC2, Wave, Skeletool, Skeletool CX, Micra, Squirt P4, and Squirt S4. I also own numerous Victorinox Swiss Army Knives and multitools. I truly respect and admire the stellar designs utilized by both companies. Having used and owned all these different tools, I feel that the Leatherman 831200 Squirt ES4 and PS4 are now unparalleled as the best keychain size multi tools fit for everyday carry (EDC).

As you can see by the title of this review, I’m so excited about the new Midnite Manager that I’ve lost grasp of the English language. I carried around the older version of this knife for a few years. It was exactly the same, but had a red light instead of the new white light. I often thought to myself “This knife sure is swell, but the red light isn’t as useful as a white one would be.” Well, Victorinox crawled inside my brain, scooped out that thought, and made it come true!

The Victorinox Swiss Army Midnite Manager has every tool on this thing comes in handy, the bottle opener, screwdriver, scissors, blade. Even the tools I don’t use very often myself come in handy – my wife is always borrowing it in the car to file her nails, or at the grocery store to cross things off her list with the pen. The new white light is surprisingly bright for its size. You won’t be landing airplanes with it or anything, but it’s gobs better than the old red one.

leatherman-wingmanLeatherman 831426 Wingman Multi-Tool review
There have been excellent reviews of both the Leatherman 831426 Wingman Multi-Tool and Rebar, as well as all the others, but because there are so many models, it can be hard to choose which one to buy. I hope to help in the choice of economical “Full-size” multitools, as Leatherman calls a number of models. The “full size” line of tools are all about 100mm long when folded, and include the Charge TTi, the New Wave, the Rebar, and the Wingman. The first two are much more expensive than the latter two, and I will only discuss the Rebar and Wingman.

Leatherman 830846 Skeletool Multitool 
I have seen this tool pitched for hiking/camping. If you are an avid outdoorsman, get the Charge TTi. The Leatherman Skeletool Multitool is lighter but only by 3.2 ounces (5 compared to 8.2). For that minimal weight savings, you sacrifice having a saw, file, backup blades and a can opener. Seems like a really bad trade off in survival situations.

The Skeletool is a great pocket knife replacement. It is light enough and compact enough to replace your trusty pocket knife. Without even openning the swing arms, you can access the knife (which is very solid) and bottle openner / carabiner. Openning the swing arms provides access to very solid pliers and screwdriver. The screwdriver gives access to 4 screwdriver heads since the removable bits are reversable and the handle stores an extra bit.

Gerber 22-41454 Black Diesel Multi-Plier

I had been searching for a replacement for my Schrade Tough Tool, which while giving me many years of reliable service before being stolen from a jobsite I was on, was a little heavy and clunky for my purposes.Gerber 22-41545 Black Diesel Multi-Plier always seemed very ‘handy’, but seemed a little lightweight for my purposes. But I asked around among my trusted friends and associates and I decided the Gerber Diesel had the strength and the features I was after. And after testing this bad boy in the field, I can truly say it performed without flaw.
