A good alternative to Leatherman Wave
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was in the market for a new multi-tool and it came down to the Victorinox and Leatherman Wave. The number and types of tools are pretty comparable, but what sold me to the swiss tool were the following:
1. The curved, more ergonomic handles of the Victorinox felt more comfortable, and prevented potential pinching of your skin and operating the pliers.
2. The Victorinox is about an ounce lighter
3. I liked the fit/finish of the Victorinox, and you can't resist that Victorinox click sound when you engage a tool open and close.
The only con for me is that the Victorinox is a bit more expensive than the Wave. Additionally, the knife leaves a bit to be desired (doesn't come very sharp, and the overall grind of the knife isn't the best, I'd say the knife of the Wave is a much better cutter).
MY VICTORINOX SWISS TOOL NYLON POUCH IS...
MY VICTORINOX SWISS TOOL NYLON POUCH IS WORN OUT AND NEEDS REPLACING--CANNOT CARRY ON MY BELT ANY LONGER--I USE THE TOOL CONSTANTLY.
CAN THE POUCH BE REPLACED ?IF SO PLEASE LIST THE PRICE AND HOW I CAN GET A REPLACEMENT
Unless Backcountry has the pouch listed separately for sale, I'd say either try ebay or contacting victorinox. The model they have on this page actually comes with a leather pouch.
