    ...with a pocket clip?

    I've got a Leatherman MUT:

    I like the way it operates, but it lacks many tools for "real-world" use. I'd carry it more often, but it's heavy.

    It has a nice sheath with and I have a bunch of extra bits that fit into the sheath, but, again, it weighs a ton.

    I'd like a light(er)weight multi-tool with a pocket clip that would replace my Benchmade Auto-Stryker. I'd prefer the blade to be able to open without having to open the tool.

    Ideas? Links? Pictures?

    Thanks! :wavey:

    Leatherman Skeletool, real light weight and simplistic. Might not have enough tools though. Fairly cheap can be found around 40-100 depending on model.

    My daily carry has been the Leatherman Wingman. Not as light as some but lighter than the MUT.. Check the prices. I can get them under $25. Best deal out there.

    If the skeletool covers your needs, it's a killer choice.

    I'll have to look into it.

    I'm honestly after the lightest, largest tool WITH a pocket clip.

    That's my criteria.

    I have a surge, wave, wingman and sidekick. The first two are too awkward and heavy for me to carry daily. The last two are very comfortable and have the built in clips. Plus they were very cheap.

    Leatherman Freestyle might work if you just need pliers and a knife.

    Leatherman had another one (the Sidekick I think) that was basically their original tool with a pocket clip, but they quit making it.
