Multitool Leatherman: review of the Charge TTi model
This model is light enough - its weight is 240 g. The steel used in the manufacture of the knife blade has a density of S30V. In the kit there are a couple of bit holders. In general, the tool has 19 auxiliary elements. There is a small saw, an opener, a screwdriver, a file and scissors.
Those nippers that are installed in the multitool can be used as nippers and ordinary pliers. Charge TTi is able to shrink in size for a more compact placement, which is a significant plus. However, the fact that there is a ring for the lace, the manufacturer does not provide a cover.
Unlike the previous version of Wave, this model has the best quality blade, titanium handles, a set of bits. However, the cost is about 2-3 thousand rubles. Therefore, if there are extra funds, it is better to shell out this particular multitool.

Before buying a multitool, most buyers are thinking about which company and model to choose. On the one hand, I want to buy the top version, which everyone has heard and few people fail, and on the other hand, there is no desire to spend too much.
If you want to please yourself, your friend, your brother or your child with an inexpensive and worthy multitool, it's better to choose a model of Leatherman. Reviews about this manufacturer are in most cases positive. When ordering some tools, a flashlight is provided. According to the owners, he meets the declared characteristics of the company and in fact is able to serve about 10 years.
Among the disadvantages of buyers highlight that in some models the knife opens hard or only in the next order (after the opening of the pliers). The weight of such devices is too big (for hand-made socks), so as a mobile option for everyday use they are not very convenient.
