In my quest to find tools, knives and other gear that fit my minimalist lifestyle I’ve been through several products in order to find the right one. One of those items is the multi-tool. Both Gerber and Leatherman are the leading manufactures and I’ve carried multi-tools from both in the past. In the past, they have always been in a belt pouch on my belt (not very low-vis). Wanting to get away from carrying one overtly was easier said than done. My plan was to find a smaller multi-tool with the bare essentials that I could just drop in my pocket and forget about it until I needed it. After buying and trying a few I settled on the Leatherman Style PS.
The Leatherman Style PS comes in a small form factor as you can see in the featured image of this article.
Another benefit the Style PS has over almost all other multi-tools is the fact that it doesn’t have a knife blade as one of the tools which makes is TSA friendly. I didn’t really need a blade on my multi-tool since I already carry a knife.
The Leatherman Style PS has a very minimal set of tools which is exactly what I was looking for.
- Nail file/screwdriver
- Bottle opener
In the small amount of time I’ve been carrying this, I’ve used the scissors and bottle opener the most. The bottle opener actually works quite well too!
