    Hmm, that is like asking me which Telecaster I could live without.

    You will have to pry them out of my cold....you get the idea...;)

    Actually, the one tool I carry and use every day is an old Leatherman Kick.

    Out of curiosity, anyone have one of the new P4 Leatherman? How is it? Would you get one over a Wave?

    I am quite attached to all my tools though.

    My Leatherman Supertool.
    I don’t leave home without it.
    I actually have two.
    One lives in my tool box, the other on my left hip.
    Great stuff, IMO.

    My grandfather always referred to the hammer as a Swedish screwdriver :lol::lol::lol:

    Just to head off the rare chance this might offend anyone of Swedish descent, he was Swedish himself ;)

    Fire. Or the wheel.

    If I had to choose just one, it would be fire.

    I have a whole bunch of Xcelite tools from when I did video stuff in the 80s. The company bought them for us. Great tools, last forever.
