I don't really give a hoot about your favorite multi-tool.  I'm just sick and tired of seeing my name up above "Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit" for months and months.

By the way I'm using a Gerber with tapered nose pliers which my daughter-in-law gave me for my 59th birthday.

I have a Gerber that I love, it's my first and I've had it for about 5 years now; its even better now than when it was new.

The pliers slide out and it can open up to expose other tools that flip out and you can lock it by sliding back the pliers.
I love it.

With a flick of the wrist you can eject the pliers with a cool click similar to a switch blade sound.

When it was new it was a little tight and didn't come out as easy and when playing with it one night it flew out of my hand and dented our new fridge in the bottom right corner; the wife didn't notice.
I told her about 3 years later.

That's mine, exactly.  I call it my West Side Story switch-pliers.  I showed its switch-blade technique to a dance choreographer who was rehearsing The Nutcracker and he spent the rest of evening whipping it out of his hip pocket and chasing dancers around the stage while singing the score from the rumble under the highway.
