You come prepared with the wave
True, on most days you probably won't use all 18 functions of this knife, but you know there is going to be that one day. That one day when you're the guy who is able to get the job done on the spot because you are prepared. I'm not a maintenance worker, so I won't be carrying this around with me all the time, but it is always close at hand in my day pack, along with the bit kit. I would definitely take this into the bc.
