     <p>As you can tell from the rest of this website, I'm a computer programmer by trade. I don't build roads, maintain power stations, clean rifles, or rescue people from automobile wrecks. So my practical requirements for a multi-tool are low. I might pan a MT that somebody else relies on every day for tasks far greater than I ever have to think about accomplishing. So just keep that in mind when the read the below: beyond the basics, what I care about most in a MT is the engineering that went into it, not necessarily how much you can beat at it until it dies. That's a perfectly valid (and some will convincingly argue, superior) criteria for what makes a good multi-tool... it's just not mine.</p>
     <p>I'm also not much of a steel snob — this usually doesn't make much of a difference in multi-tools anyway — so for me the difference between a Skeletool and a Skeletool CX is negligible. Edge retention and field maintenance is important, but if you're using that as your main point of comparison between a Gerber Diesel and a Victorinox Climber, I think you're missing something.</p>

     <p>In my mind, the undisputed king of the multi-tool is Victorinox. Their craftsmanship is superior, in every single tool. The tolerances inside a multi-tool are incredibly tight for what the user will demand of it, and Victorinox never fails to make precise use of every single millimeter available. What's more, the level of fit and finish in a Vic tool is second to none. And I speak not only of the well-known Swiss Army Knife (in its many varieties of size and tool load), but also of the venerable SwissTool and Spirit. Some may doubt that the SAK is a multi-tool, they certainly cannot deny the SwissTool its rightful place. In my opinion, this is the most brilliantly engineered multi-tool there is. Of course, I do consider the Swiss Army Knife quite a capable multi-tool, and one with a tradition of design and production excellence.</p>
