Leatherman Style cs without a doubt got mine in January use daily and the scissors are so versatile and still super sharp have cut my fingernails, wire, plastic and anything have tried and only $16.79 on amazon. --------

I would recommend a flashlight, and small multitool.


I would recommend the Fenix E05 | [Amazon Link] $20.13 for a very small light.


The Leatherman Style | [Amazon Link] $16.79 is my most used item on my keychain because of the great scissors and minimal toolset. It has none of the tools I don't ever use. If you're looking for a more versitile toolset, look through the remainder of Leatherman's great micro-multi-tool lineup. Try to stay away from Gerber products if at all possible.


A flash-drive can be useful as well, but it's hard to find one that is both small and durable. I did a lot of research on which option to buy for quite a while. The grail of USB flash drives is the PQI Tiffy because of its incredible speed and durable housing. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to find for sale, and it's also super expensive. I went for the Kingston Datatraveler | [Amazon Link] $10.40, and it's working very well for me.


I've rarely needed one, but many folks want to carry a fire-starter with them, and there are some small options for your keychain. The Exotac NanoStriker $23.50 is a ferrocerium-based striker, and the True Utility FireStash [Amazon Link] $16.23 is a simple, tiny lighter.


Finally, it's nice to have your keys hanging in a comfortable place in your pocket, and not in a bunched-up heap at the bottom. Definitly consider grabbing a P-7 suspension clip $12+shipping. I waited a while to pull the trigger on mine, but I don't regret it.
Another option would be the Obstructures Pry/Open tool $32. It serves as a pry-bar, which you don't yet understand how much you might use after you start carrying one.

Additional Information

Here's my setup today.

Here is a great post by /u/goretsky about where to buy one-handed multi-tools like Atwood, etc.


P.S. It's great to have a color-scheme for your keychain. It looks fantastic.

Incase anybody was wondering here is what I am carrying:

Speck Iphone case/wallet holds 4 cards + 1 bill.

32gb Sandisk USB Drive

Leatherman Style CS

u/Discord42 · 6 pointsr/EDC

All around great little thing to keep in your coin/watch pocket.

u/NoMansKing · 6 pointsr/EDC

If you are OK with buying brand new, a few popular options here are some suggestions with Amazon (USA) links:

u/Stratoblaster96 · 5 pointsr/EDC

Maybe just get Leatherman Wave? and kill two birds with one stone? It'll also have a bunch of other little awesome tools that are soooo handy... my two cents... it wouldn't be nice on your keys though... that would be a pocket kinda thing. look into the Leatherman Style CS

u/shr3dthegnarbrah · 5 pointsr/EDC

A small multi-tool like the Leatherman CS replacing a utility knife.

I also think we (this sub) overlook the utility of smartphone apps. This demographic (reddit) is reasonably likely to have a smartphone and I know that I use useful things every day like:




to simplify my life and protect myself. I sure could use some recommendations from folks like you about apps I haven't heard of.

u/DrMoondog · 4 pointsr/sysadmin

I have one of these. It is a fantastic thing to have always on you.

u/realslacker · 4 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

I tend to believe anything more than a scratch and your best bet is to improvise something (duck tape and a shirt/buff/whatever) and get out of the woods ASAP. Basically the wound is nothing or it's time to go home. That being said, you should take what is comfortable for you.

As far as knife vs multi tool, that's a decision that's going to come down to where you are getting the most utility. Personally I would rather have a small scissors than a big knife, and I carry a Leatherman Style CS as it's main tool is a scissors, but it still has a small knife and tweezers and it's only a few ounces.

Mostly it comes down to what do you need to feel safe, but it's going to be different for everyone. I tend to cut out anything that I won't need. That's not to say you aren't going to have a few comfort items, but balance everything with your distance to safety. Then make sure you file a trip plan with someone, worse comes to worse and someone knows your path and how long you've been out.

u/justfred · 4 pointsr/BuyItForLife

There are so many knives and pocket tools, and what you like depends on how you're going to use it and what your general aesthetic is.

Trimming nails? Opening envelopes? Tightening screws? Cutting wire? Peeling oranges? Fending off wolverines?

Wood? Steel? Plastic?

Tell us what you want to use it for, and what material you prefer.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Great combination of tools, including good phillips:

Great wire clippers/strippers; good other tools:®-Es4-Multi-Tool-Blue/dp/B0032Y4ITU

Classic three blade wood:

Classic metal:

Great small tool with a clip and good scissors:®-Multi-Tool-Stainless-Steel/dp/B0032XVNMQ

I gave this to my BF for his birthday and he was so proud and happy about it, but TSA took it away. =O

It's true, I'm in love! (Just not with TSA.) =P

u/yasec · 3 pointsr/EDC

Leatherman Skeletool is a great item, which you should be able to get in that range. I got the upgraded Skeletool CX for under that from r/knife_swap.

If you want smaller try the Leatherman Style or Gerber Dime . The Style comes with scissor main tool or pliers.

Full size I’d suggest the Leatherman Wingman .

u/evoltap · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I have the Leatherman Style CS . It has lived on my keychain for 2 years now, definitely will be replaced if it fails or is lost.

u/riversofgore · 3 pointsr/EDC

The style is fantastic. I've carried the Style CS for 2 years now with no complaints. I would recommend the Style CS because it has scissors and a small knife instead of pliers. The scissors are sturdy and sharp, has tweezers, bottle opener, and of course the knife and file. If you want a great tool that lives on your keychain and is barely noticeable get the Style. If you want more tools and don't mind another thing in your pocket get the Squirt.

u/sunchops · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My current backpack is falling apart, so a new one would be pretty awesome.

C'mon...gimme. You look fantastic today, I wish I could be as devilishly good looking as you!

I also could use a multitool. My Swiss Army knife is too big to carry around practically. And having a multitool is always useful.

u/aravena · 3 pointsr/EDC

Top to Bottom, Left to Right...

u/flyinglotus1983 · 2 pointsr/EDC

> Multi-tool always seem too heavy for what they offer

  • Leatherman Style PS @ 44 grams
  • Leatherman Style CS @ 44 grams
  • Leatherman Skeletool @ 141 grams (5 ounces)
  • Leatherman Skeletool CX @ 141 grams (5 ounces).

    That's not heavy if you ask me. I think the Style is perfect for every-day on-person EDC, and the Skeletool for either on-person or in an EDC bag. The Skeletool is missing some features compared to a full-up Charge TTi (8 ounces) or similar, but for an EDC, it's better than not carrrying a multitool at all.
u/definitelynotaspy · 2 pointsr/EDC

This is a fun idea.

Assuming you carry a separate knife:

Gerber Shard - $6.82

Fenix E01 - $12.73

Total: $19.55

The Shard does so much for so little, and the Fenix is a very reliable, functional flashlight (with the added bonus of using easy-to-replace AAA batteries).

Assuming you don't carry a separate knife:

Leatherman Style CS - $16.79

Generic button cell light - $3-$4 at Walmart or wherever

Total: $20.79 (assuming the $4 price on the button light, it's a little over, but you can probably find one for $3 if you look)


Victorinox Rally - $11.60

LRI Photon II - $8.27

Total: $19.87

This kinda depends on your needs. The Style functions better as a knife than the Rally (in my opinion), and offers essentially the same tools plus a great pair of scissors. But in return, you sacrifice a little in terms of your light. Personally I'd opt for the Style + generic.

u/iTechThingsSeriously · 2 pointsr/networking

I've been eyeing those AirConsoles for a while. A good flashlight is great. That screwdriver someone mentioned was cool.

I have this one and like it a lot.

Folks have mentioned the smaller Leatherman tools here. I liked this one so much, I bought one for both of my key rings.

u/toxiclimeade · 2 pointsr/knives

If he had been carrying a Swiss Army knife that's probably the style he prefers, Opinel makes single bladed knives that open in the same way his old SAK did, and leatherman makes amazing multitools, I would recommend checking all these brands out.

Opinel knives are usually extremely cheap and run about 20$/£, their most popular knife is the No. 8 for about 12$/£, it comes in other colors and wood types as well. No. 8 is a bigger model and it might be a little bulky for someone use to a SAK, the small the number in the name ex. No. 7, No.6, get smaller as their number designation does. I have the No. 8 Trekking knife in slate and its a pretty great knife for its price (18$/£).

If he likes Swill Army Knives, there are quite a few more options to look at, they can get a little pricey for their size at times, I own the Tinker, this was my first knife and I have found that looking at the tools on these knives would behoove you. I do not need an awl in the knife I carry every day for instance. There are many many options to chose from, and through a little sifting you may find one that you feel suits him best. Victorinox (the brand that makes swiss army knives) also makes knives that are a little closer to the opinels I mentioned earlier, a few of their models (like this one) are simply one or two blades. I would look into local laws however, I know some places do not allow blades that can be opened with one hand like the one I linked you to.

Leatherman makes wonderful multitools and a few pocket knives. Nearly everything they make have blades that lock as a safety feature, although very few can be flicked open, so I would check the specifics of this law, I doubt a multi-tool is illegal. This is the Micra, it appears to be a smaller version of a leatherman I own that I cannot find on their site. This one has a blade that opens in a way that is legal for sure, its blade does not lock either. If you find that some locking blades are allowed, the Skeletool is a favorite of mine, it may look a little outlandish but it has always had the best combination of essential tools out of any of my multi-tools, and it is one of my favorites. The Style is a smaller version with slightly different tools ( I don't think it has screwdrivers), but it's blade does not lock. The skeletool is about 70$/£ I think, and their smaller tools like the micra and style are under 30$/£, this brand has quite a bit more I didn't touch on, if you think he would like something like this I would check out site, I hope you find something that works, I know I'm always thrilled when my girlfriend gets me a new knife.

u/rodohmes · 2 pointsr/EDC

Not sure that this is low profile, but I've been eyeing the Leatherman Style CS recently (so I don't have firsthand experience with it):

u/must_ache · 2 pointsr/EDC

Leatheman Style CS has excellent scissors and a very good blade for it's size(1.6in blade). It is basically a step up for the SAK classic. Better scissors, blade, and tweezers. Loose the toothpick and gain a bottle opener. Can be found for around $20. It won't replace an actual knife in most peoples EDC, but for many it could.

If it isn't enought knife then look into a value dedicated knife like an opinel no.6 as well if you want more knife.

u/NarrWallace · 2 pointsr/EDC

Leatherman style CS is what I carry. Fairly solid and very light weight. They also make the style ps which has pliers and the style, which is an even smaller tool. Also as others suggest, the squirt ps4 seems like a solid choice.

u/geekworking · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Scissors are the killer feature. You can cut blister packs and wire tires with an open blade, but it is way more dangerous and has less control than scissors. I've had a Leatherman Micra for years and really have never had to use the knife blade. Scissors covered it.

u/ConfessionsAway · 1 pointr/gadgets

They're nice but different builds are for different users. You might not use the scissors at all, but someone else might need them as the main use like these. I use the pliers more often than scissors as well, but like I said choose the right ones for you.

u/Mooberries · 1 pointr/EDC

Ah! See, I had already been looking at the Leatherman 831207 Style CS, but that one looks much more functional.

u/Kahnza · 1 pointr/mildlyinfuriating

Carry a knife. Doesn't have to be a huge Crocodile Dundee size one. Something like the Leatherman Style CS is perfect.

u/RugerRedhawk · 1 pointr/DIY

A keychain multitool?

I prefer the ones with scissors, but they also have similar models with pliers.

u/JimmyLegs50 · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I have the Leatherman CS and it fucking rules. It's ridibulously tiny and light, it has a quick-release carabiner clip, scissors, blade, tweezers, and a file that doubles as a small screwdriver. I use the scissors all the time and 've never needed anything other than those basic tools.

u/bicknass · 1 pointr/EDC

One that I recently bought was the Leatherman CS, it has the same tools as the little SD victorinox but I like the design and feel a little more. Leatherman has the Skeletool as well if you're interested in something bigger.

On a classier side I really liked my Buck Chairman. It's only knives, no tools but it's a quality product.

Personally I always carry my Victorinox one handed Trekker in my pocket and my SOG Trident in my backpack just for good measure.

u/mmmmpisghetti · 1 pointr/IDontWorkHereLady

You need this.

Knife opens without opening the whole thing and you also have decent scissors!

u/DullBoyJack · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Best $15 I ever spent... I sort of feel "naked" without mine on my keychain now. It's super small, but yes... he's totally right...

u/IronPentacarbonyl · 1 pointr/EDC

Clippers? Do you mean nail clippers? Because those are incredibly uncommon on multitools. I can't think of one off the top of my head that has one.

The other tools all show up on the Vic Classic and the Leatherman Style CS, Micra, and Style. None of those have pliers, though. You didn't mention them, but if you want pliers, a knife, and tweezers on the same tool I think the Gerber Dime is one of the rare few (only?) to do that. Despite being Gerber, I hear it's OK, but take that with a grain of salt; I've never used one.

EDIT: Misplaced an "a".
