The Suspension looks better for £21.73? (well, it looks cooler!)

Can really recommend the Gerber Crucial. The blade is much stronger than on many multi-tools, and the blade lock is the type used on 'proper' knives. It is easy to open or close the blade when wearing gloves - maybe relevant during the cold weather or certain applications.

If you only really want your multi-tool for pliers, blade, and bottle-opening, in a well-engineered and comfortable-to-use design, then this probably can't be beaten. If you want various screwdriver functions then there are more suitable multi-tools available.

The Crucial has both hook and clip for attaching to a belt.

I've listed and bought both as they have a different abilities depending on your requirements. I'll have the crucial as a pocket / hip tool and the suspension for about the house.

I have a Leatherman Surge and a gerber Suspension a Victorinox Cyber Tool and I'm getting this as well :)

FYI Whitby's service for Leatherman is brilliant, I broke the blade on my Surge and they replaced it for free and it arrived the day after i emailed them :)

one thing that would slightly worry me is that the blade locks. Not sure you are allowed to carry a tool with a locking blade in the UK.

Ive got several Gerbers that costs me £50-£60, and they are great. Really good quality S/S, solid construction. The blades etc you get are razor sharp and last for ages.

This is a good deal... but I really really don't need another lol.

Pretty sure the knives don't lock... on each of my Gerbers with locking guides for all tools... the blade does't lock, yet every other tool does.

I don't think your allowed to carry anything with a blade at all now are you? I've stopped taking my wave with me anywhere....

The blade does lock, check out the YouTube videos. It's not exactly a pointy, stabby blade though.
#16
so is it legal or not?

It is a criminal offence to carry a locking blade in a public place without good reason.

Meaning that while it is ok for you to carry around your Swiss Army knife for leisure purposes, you will get nicked for carrying a Gerber multi tool.

Only people who need the knife(s) to perform their work are allowed to carry them (electrician, cook, etc...) and even then only in a manner in which they are not "readily available" (ie: in ones tool box, special knife carrying box, etc...). If you have it in your trouser pocket you could still face arrest.

I used to carry my MP800 in a holster on the belt, until London Transport Police advised me to put it into my tool box or I could face arrest.

You could get away with wearing it on your belt at work or wherever but I suppose if you go out for lunch you might forget. Also, it gives the police an easy charge if they want to harass you or you get involved in some kind of dispute. It would probably be easily overcome by a lawyer, but the hassle would be massive.

I've got a Gerber (Not sure which model but looks identical to the Compact Sport Multi-Plier) that I've had for about 11 years - still in excellent condition.

I keep it in the car & it has come in really useful many a time.

i'm afraid keeping it in the car is as illegal as wearing it in your pocket. for some strange reason the car is considered public place.
