    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking at picking up a new multi tool for my keyring. Currently I am using an authentic victorianox swiss army knife (the usb model).

    It has been absolutely fantastic and I use it regularly but the USB is close to the end of its life (write time has degraded seriously and only 8gb in size) and the scissors have been damaged.

    I was thinking that this time round I might separate my concerns and buy the USB stick and multitool separately.

    What I'm looking for is some recommendations for a reasonably priced replacement. It would be nice if it were reasonably compact.

    Items that are high on my priority list are:
    - scissors
    - bottle opener
    - led light
    - screwdriver

    What are you guys using and what can you recommend?

    Thanks in advance

    Not a single item but I just have a SAK Classic and a Fenix L0D CE on my keyring. No bottle opener but I rarely need one and if I do, I'm usually carrying a Leatherman Skeletool as well anyway.

    Maybe add a Gerber Shard if you don't want to carry a larger multitool.

    That gerber shard is pretty cool.

    I'd prefer to have an all in one to avoid clutter though.
