Or a couple trips to a fast food joint for food that will eventually kill you. OR a trip to the hardware store for an 8 pack of batteries for a "flashlight" and a roll of duct, duck, tape, Right Alf?

I had considered getting one when they came out, but it would not be as practical as the one on my hip. The pliers are what I find indispensable. It is kinda cool though.

I hadn't seen one before. Yeah, not practical sums it up. Not sure what would happen if you actually tried to undo a 3/8" nut that had been tightened down. Probably the bracelet would end up with a kink or in two pieces.

And yes, I also use the pliers a lot, maybe even more than the knife.

Really helps compensate for the aging, arthritic fingers, eh?

My condolences, I didn't know you had hand problems, maybe brought on by holding a coffee cup too many hours a day.

Actually I use the wire cutters almost as much as I use the pliers. I find they work amazingly well. Sometimes I have to remind myself not to be lazy and go grab some real ones instead. They're cheaper to replace than the Leatherman.
