I've been carrying one for over twenty years. Terrific little knife.

I have never used any tool as much as my Leatherman Skeletool.
http://www.leatherman.com/product/Skeletool

I love it because it has a pocket clip. Also the knife is accessible without opening the whole tool and can be opened and closed with one hand.

I bought some Champs with plyers years ago. With a champ and gerber tool I can do pretty much everything I need to do while on a trip. I am impressed with the way they held up.

Wagner not so much.
Chinese clone from the early 80s not so much.
Victorianox.....runs like a champ.

Try using the wire cutters on something really hard (like a bolt).

This is what changed me from Leatherman to Gerber. Then I heard about Leathermans political views on guns.....end of story, no more leatherman.

Besides that, I can "open" the Gerbers i have with a flick of my wrist and I usually don't think of pliers 'till at least one hand is 'caught" in the project.

Not sure what kind of bolts you intend to cut with a pocketknife but it's handled wiring and coat hangers just fine.

Sometimes the benefit of a given product outweighs meshing ideals with the manufacturer's employees, although I definitely understand where you're coming from.

I had to do some fixing while on a trip recently.

I filed for several days working away mettle with my Swiss Army knife and the gerber tool.

Then I needed to chop down a bolt that was about a .25 inches thick. I did a little bit of filing on that bolt. Then used the wire cutters to go through the bolt.

This wouldn't have worked with the leatherman.

Not many other brands can say the same thing. I have samples of every knife listed in this thread but as a gift from one person to the next, Case or one of the classic Swiss Army knives have been the best suggestions. Just my thoughts.
I agree, some people in this thread are ignoring the OP's $60 limit. In that price range, CaseXX hands down.

Great choice picking Case. I would have recommended Case or Buck.
