Can't decide... EDIT: Choice made!

I'm buying a new multi-tool.

I have been using a Leatherman Juice for almost seven years, and it's starting to show its miles.  I know I could replace it under Leatherman's guarantee, but it's one I won from Instructables, and it's engraved.

So, I'm trying to choose a replacement, which will be part of my EDC.

At the moment, I'm havering between the Gerber Crucial and the Leatherman Sidekick.

I like the Crucial. My youngest has one for scouting, and I've used it a few times. It's quite comfortable in the hand, and feels strong.

However, it lacks tools I have used quite a bit in the past.

It's proving a hard choice, online reviews vary between useless and contradictory, so I thought I'd see what you folks think. What are you carrying as DIY EDC, what do you wish you were carrying?


I have a Leatherman Wave on it's way in the post!

I got a free leatherman wave from work, last week. its pretty nice, i like the locking knife features and the fact that it has both a serrated and plain blade. I'm sure you will enjoy it

I do (except for the time I dropped it, and unthinkingly caught it. To the bone...).

Saw that you made your decision but I wanted you to see what "matt" from demolition ranch thinks.

Don't get me wrong I do like Leathermans and Gerbers and have a few, but I have found that EDC wise and after several deployments that SOG multi-tools tend to hold up much better and are more reliable.

What about this, I have it and it is amazingly useful.

Hmm, the pliers are a bit weedy-looking...

You mean not handy enough?

Sorry, it's an English colloquialism: weak or feeble.

I get it now, you are right. It is not like leatherman where the entire design is based on plier
