I would say the best way to determine which is best is to
take a look at your gear . I bought one of the mini Leatherman
tools last spring planning to take it on our thru-hike, after
carrying it all summer I discovered the only thing I ever used
was the knife blade. So I started looking at all the gadgets on
the tool and trying to figure out why I needed them . First
the phillips head screwdriver, nope don't need that nothing I
carry has phillips head screws, then I started thinking even
farther and noticed we have no screws whatsoever. Bottom line
was, the only thing I could figure out a need for was the
blade, so now I carry a Gerber LST .
Nice little knife, weighs about an ounce, and does what I need 
it to do. So take alook at your stuff , and see if you really
need all those gadgets. Maybe you do, maybe you don't ......

unanimous verdict ? What's that ?
