Leatherman's new multi-tool is pricey but very useful never the less.

It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Honestly not for me. Kinda gimiky and looks too 'bikerish'. Makes a statement that doesn't fit with being the 'grey man'. It could be useful for sure but beyond the image factor, a regular Leatherman tool is much more useful and can be carried without being in plane sight. That in itself can be an advantage in many instances. Perhaps as a tool of last resort to have with you,  IF it is allowed on aircraft as the only option. To each his own I guess.

I'm a little grey in the beard too but I really want one of these. Wearable tools is a concept far past its time. Just to have constant availability to screw drives and a bottle opener alone make it worth while. You can never have too many screw drives.  :) I'm not one for jewelry so I would probably be more interested in the watch version. The problem with that is that is that it looks to be a very large watch which is not my preference. I know that it is expensive but it is a Leatherman: buy it once - buy it for life.

It's a ridiculously overpriced set of small box wrenches and screwdrivers.  It's probably not even that easy to use.  It's definitely going to become a status symbol for the millenium generation.  I appreciate all that, and would still absolutely love one for Father's day.
