    A smaller range at the Wallet Shops (limited and smaller set range) or you can find the entire range at The Planet Traveller at Marina Sq or Paragon...there's one that even has a built-in USB storage thingy too heh.. All Swiss Army Victorinox

    as per thread title? i tot the Buck wan is mild, the blade is under 4cm = mild? haa...

    the Beach Rd shops is opposite Golden Mile, 1 floor above the food center. if u are looking for a basic multi-tool with a blade, bottle opener & screw driver (size dependant lah) & relatively cheap, Leatherman Kick may be ur ideal choice under $100.

    anyway here's some well known brands to drool at...

    http://www.victorinox.com/

    http://www.sogknives.com/store/tools.html (did remember seeing an ultra tiny model, maybe discontinued? )

    & then there's a forum where u read up on more...

    point to ponder... would anyone whose multi-tool has been regularly used for most hardware applications use the bottle opener?

    somehow i find hardware, F&B dun go well together....

    Bugis got meh? i dunno...

    years back CCK got 1 branch now no more... cos most local stores do not practice clearing their stock to keep their products going, but they do not know (in the past) items get outdated & drop in value.

    prices are always high in Sg. i guess their products (mostly flashlights, some NVGs, knives) are too niche. for those into these niche market always know locally available stuff are about there, maybe as regular customer prices may be trimmed slightly. besides, how many would part more than $70 on a multi-tool?

    More than $70? I thought I saw some Leatherman in the hardware shops all selling $100+ or maybe $200+

    i like gerber too!
