Any multitools with a large self defense blade?

  1. Do you guys know of any multi-tools with a large, locking self defense blade?
    Optimal accessories would include pliers, heavy wire cutters, saw blade, and screwdrivers. Just looking for a little bit more of a survival knife than your average multi-tool.
    I've got a Leatherman Charge, and it has a nice pocket knife type blade with a good positive lockup. I was just wondering what else is out there.
     
  2. Pretty much every multi tool I've seen are just "jacks of all trades, and masters of none.''
    I've never seen one with a blade that would be ideal for a survival knife. Thats assuming that you want a larger blade for chopping, battening, etc.
     

  3. Pretty much. I have a Leatherman like the one shown here. I used to carry it on one of the trails that I hike on, when poison oak started to overgrow the single track sections late in the summer. Their choice of accompanying blades left a lot to be desired. And, the shearing blades developed a lot of play and became pretty much worthless. But, it's got a nice form factor for a bigger blade and a serious pair of pliers. ..... disappointing quality though.
