What would ya'll recommend for a decent cheap multi-tool? preferably with a good knife and pliers those are my main concern, but would like to have scissors and a screwdriver as well.

Thanks

Gerber 600 is what I prefer over the Leatherman, and I have both.

Gerber is horrible for multi-tools. I'm not liking they're knives period today.

Leatherman all the way. I prefer the wave aswell.

I have the basic Gerber, it does what I need, but I honestly don't use it much, there is a tool bag in each vehicle and a roll away in the garage.

I saw that the local Target store had a gerber ripstop multitool for $30 that seemed good. I have not handled one yet but will pick one up soon.
