- Q & A
Bought one for me, one as a present
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been wanting a multi-tool for a long time, finally pulled the trigger. This one is super nice, lots of useful tools, great design, easy to deploy. Very high quality.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
How to explain this multitool? I will start by saying I was surprised by how small and dense it feels in it's leather case. Unfolded It's a medium sized multi-tool, but it collapses to be very compact.
They nailed the case too. It's amazing how many multitools ship with worthless cases. Take for instance the Leatherman wave which can fall out of it's horrendous nylon sheath. This one is leather with Velcro to keep it closed.
The Swiss Tool Spirit is as finely crafted as you would expect from the company that produces Swiss Army knives. In hand it is very smooth with no sharp edges and a nice shape. Each tool can be accessed while it's in the closed position. They open without clumping together, and they click on a detent at about 3/4s open and lock into place when fully opened. They have fingernail nicks to help you open them, just like their pocket knives.
This tool is one of my favorites both because of it's feature set and build quality. I almost hate to take it camping. One thing to note about this tool in specific. This one comes with the serrated sheeps foot knife. I love this knife shape on my multi tool, but if you want a traditional spear shaped knife you will want the Spirit X version of this tool.
This is a fantastic multi-tool. It is difficult to describe, but you can feel the quality when you hold it in your hand. Those who have had nice tools will know what I mean. All the movements of parts are smooth, and lock firm.
This is a fantastic tool, that has a great "feel" to it. It is my go to tool when not in the backcountry. I'll stick with my Mora knife when on the trail.
