I am new to multitools and have never owned one (only cheap Swiss army knives).I need a multi tool that I will use for hiking, camping, emergency, I'm not planning to EDC it.
The Leatherman Surge, and Charge TTi seems nice to me and I hear a lot of good stuff especially on the Charge, but I can't really decide between them.
One negative thing I heard about the Surge is that the main blade is made out of weaker metal(?).
Any suggestions of good, reliable multi tools? I heard rusting is a big problem.
and how do you maintain multi tools? Can I spray WD-40 to clean, lubricate them?
Do I need knife sharpeners?
