Great $20 or less gifts - Page 2

post #16 of 22

Thanks for the suggestions, ending up going with the Multi-tool and the person who received it enjoyed it. The other gift that went over well was a party game (Cards against humanity), which we played after the gift opening. Other gifts included: Wine, Hot chocolate, a book.

I thought this was styleforum, not peasantforum.

A $20 multitool is probably a piece of crap. Read/watch 127 Hours and learn the importance of having a quality tool when you really fucking need it.

See for example - http://www.sogknives.com/type/multi-tools/powerlock-satin.html

I've had a prior version of this for 7 years. I've hot wired cars, picked locks, killed rabbits, replaced an alternator in a '01 Jeep Wrangler, and built a bridge with it.

Eh. A $20 leatherman multi-tool is fine for keeping in your desk or on your key chain. It will do the very basic jobs it was meant to do and isn't intended to replace a tool box, If I was going to do any real work I would get a real tool. I travel with a $20 swiss army knife and it's served me fine for all the little tasks I've needed it to do. In 127 Hours he was under-prepared for the task he was undertaking (crappy tools and not informing anyone of where he was going). If your going to take your arm off (or going camping) a $20 leatherman multi-tool isn't your best bet, if your going to open a box, open a beer, or tighten a screw on your glasses its going to do the job just as well as that $114.00 tool.

Not to mention it's half the size and a quarter of the weight of the $114 tool.

Dumbass from 127 hours would have been better served by telling a friend where he was going than a quality blade.

I don't think leatherman sells a double sawbuck multitool. You could probably get a Gerber for that price. I would not trust my life to a Gerber.

Swiss Army knife is a different thing altogether.

Yes, that was one of MANY mistakes he made.
