Issue Multi Tools

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by Outstanding, Apr 20, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Everyone seems to be wearing/carrying multi tools nowadays. Are they issued yet? If not should they be? If they were they could include specialist tools for SA80/minimi etc?
     
  2. They are issued - to those trades who are deemed to need them.
    As for weapons-specific kits, I refer you to the issued SPW.
    Right, whose for coffee.........................
     
  3. I got issued a Leatherman on Telic. Do'nt think they are on general issue though.

    Rick,
    Thanks, black no sugar. But on the Multi tool thing, I think that accepting the SPW will still be available for routine cleaining there must be utility for the inclusion of military specific tools in a multi-tool sysytem, that was issued. I thought I heard of a few "leathermen" being issued at one time, but what would be better would be a more capable Gerber style thing. It just seems that as so many guys already buy them that the system might wake up and see the requirement.
