  •  having sharpened steel... (4.00)
    ...all my life, and I'm 60 now,I will say that Gerber blades take the best edge I have ever sharpened. Plus the Gerber design for a multi-tool is more effective than the Leatherman.  The Gerber costs more, and it worth it.

    don't always believe what you think...

    •  one-handed access (none)
      The two things that sold me on the Gerber in the first place were the serrated blade (which Leatherman, at the time, didn't offer) and the one-hand-accessible design.

      I still like being able to get to everything with one hand, without letting go of whatever I was working on.  And you're 100 percent right about the blades.

      •  Leveling the playing field (none)
        The Leatherman Charge Ti and XTi have been designed for one-handed access to lock-open blades and one-handed opening.  They also use a new steel alloy for the blades that appears to be the better of anything else I've used, including Gerber folders and my expensive-but-worth-it river knife.
