Multi-Tools and combination that must be more underlined:
In the history of military equipment the use of pliers in many forms are not rare. The combination knives and other
tools with the pliers can be found and documented on the internet. It is common knowledge that this is a tactical choice for a huge selection of tasks for military use.
A multi-tool gives the advantage with having
everything in one package. This is a bit depending on the size and strength of the plier. Some have doubts and go for the old way with a separate combination plier with the tree main tools for all uses. There are different quality ones today, there are an
incredible selection to choose from really. One of the advantages with this is that it is easier to clean and you automatically get the extra advantage with having the possibility for two hand use. That can be a screwdriver in one hand and using the plier
to hold in the other. There is a chessboard of possible uses.
The negative with this is the carry, how both tools can be secure in the carry systems. The biggest advantage is that you can use a strong plier that
is bigger and can take more than a Multi-tool plier can take. You can get cutting abilities that is faster, more secure and durable. It is very difficult and it is very expensive to make pliers in Multi-tools that can compare to larger tools. Today you can
find interchangeable cuttting inserts. This is a very nice thing in my mind.
It is difficult to make a Multi-tool that can replace professional crafts tools. Actually it is far more difficult to make a plier that
can replace a craftsman need than the individual screwdrivers, functions and knives. Somehow the plier always takes more beating and wear.
It is many times a misunderstanding that a Multi-tool can replace and be
used for everything. No matter on how strong the steel and quality is. It is very dependent on precision.
I love everything to do with Multi-tools like you know, it is a great invention. Today it is usually the
slim needle-nose pliers that are the favorite choice among people.
It is not so always that large size separate pliers are the best, they can also break and sometimes they do not take more abuse than the Multi-tools
ones. For sure there are separate craftsmen pliers today that got a quality that is much better than the Multi-Tool ones. Another advantage with separate pliers is the use of insulating handles against cold and electricity. You can get a better and safer grip.
Swiss Army Knives are excellent to be used in combination with a separate plier. It is a combination that can be used just as well in the everyday life as for survivalists and safety experts.
