Juicy Tools

leatherman's Juice series have been around a while and still going strong. I've been using the Juice S2 which folds out with the standard full size needle nose pliers, straight knife, wire cutters, hard wire cutters, extra small screw drivers (eye glasses), small screw driver, med/ large screwdriver, philips screwdriver, lanyard attachment, can opener, bottle opener, and scissors. basically, everything you need most of the time. i recently banged up my longboard while skating down a hill. with some super glue and the leather at hand, i performed reconstructive surgery on the nose of my board, making it look better than ever (well... maybe not). but the build and quailty of these tools are super, strong anodized aluminum handles and only 3.25 inches in length, weighing 4.4 ounces, this is one killer tool. if you like other colors or combinations of tools, they have larger or smaller JUICE tools. fave: extremely durable, more so than my swiss army knives. Rave: the design and the color! save: what's not to like?! also comes in "storm gray" for boring folks. check them out below: [equipbug]

my S2 is Burnt Orange:


others: C2 cork screw instead of scissors (the difference between C and S)

purple!! oh man the colors are cool. too bad i've never seen them around here though. this brand is not too commercial. every tom, dick and harry has a swiss army knife nowadays, its a good change.

had a blue one for a while now and it has been traveling around with me. It's definetely useful, but sometime I feel that the blades and each individual tool isn't quite as strong as I hope for. I wonder how they compare with the swiss knives? anyone?

Swiss army knives are less useful in general because it lacks the Pliers. that the main focus of the leatherman. the other thing is that the leatherman has all the necessary knives, depending on how much you want to carry with you. the only major difference is the can opener. i've used both the sharp swiss army knife as well as the blunt leatherman during camping trips. the swiss army is definitely easier, but once i got used to the leatherman, i think it's a lot safer to use a blunt can opener if they both work... one of the screw drivers are also mounted at the tip of the swiss army's can opener and since it doesn't "lock", i've slived out my thumb once trying to open something. so... the sharp can opener is a bad idea. lastly, locking tools are much safer... some swiss armies lock, but most of their tools don't.
