Comments about Original Wave:

I bought mine back in 1999 and it's seen a lot of use since then. I've carried it almost every day since I bought it and I quite literally lose count of the number of times I use it for something each week.

I chose it as I preferred the rounded grips of the Wave over the sharp edges of the PST series. The ability to access both knife blades without having to open the tool was also a factor in choosing it.

The tool opens smoothly and easily - I can flip it open "balisong-style" one-handed to access the pliers and other internal tools.

It has a great selection of well-made, useful tools - I use them all frequently. It doesn't have all the tools I would like, but it has enough that it handles most situations - emergency repairs, general DIY, opening innumerable cans, sawing wood, filing everything from plastic to metal, putting up shelves and many other random things that require a tool on hand.

It came with a Nylon pouch, of which the only fault was that it was secured by Velcro - the Velcro did not last (but was easily fixed by putting on a snap fastener).

The pouch is a necessity as the tool is too weighty to comfortably carry in trouser pockets - it's not much better in jacket pockets - so I generally carry it on my belt.
