    What would ya'll recommend for a decent cheap multi-tool? preferably with a good knife and pliers those are my main concern, but would like to have scissors and a screwdriver as well.

    Thanks

    Gerber 600 is what I prefer over the Leatherman, and I have both.

    leatherman wave is where its at...i have 2 or 3 of them maybe 4 im not sure any more...i carry it every where and every day...i ended up with so many from haveing to buy the 2nd one to send the original back for free repairs because a file is not a pry bar. and then id buy one because id forget it at home and need one or it was on sale.

    Leatherman Wave is the best I have seen or used. I have one with me or nearby all the time.

    Gerber is horrible for multi-tools. I'm not liking they're knives period today.

    Leatherman all the way. I prefer the wave aswell.

    I have the basic Gerber, it does what I need, but I honestly don't use it much, there is a tool bag in each vehicle and a roll away in the garage.

    I saw that the local Target store had a gerber ripstop multitool for $30 that seemed good. I have not handled one yet but will pick one up soon.
