The idea of a Swiss Army knife–style multitool is irresistible. My Leatherman waits patiently in the glove compartment of my car for an emergency repair. Never mind that I know nothing about car repair — I feel safer just knowing it's there.
The classic tool has evolved to meet the increasing demands of the modern-day survivalist, and is now offered in Skeletool, Charge, Core, Surge, Wave, Crunch, Blast, Fuse, and Kick varieties. But even these power-drink inspired sub-brands can't compete with the Leatherman Argentum Luxury Knife; for $40,000, you can be the belle of the deer hunt, showing off your Leatherman Argentum Charge Del Rey. But be forewarned, as even $40K won't get you the one tool our modern-day Leatherman needs to get the job done: a USB drive is not included in any of the Leatherman Pocket Survival Tools.
The American cousin of the Swiss Army knife — larger, less refined, but perhaps more utilitarian.
