    I have been looking for a keychain multitool for some time now and couldn't decide what to go with. After watching several youtube videos I kept coming back to the Leatherman Squirt. It has just about everything I was looking for and came in at a TINY Size. I already EDC a larger Leatherman so tiny seemed like a perk. Price point came in at about $35 and it had solid reviews. Needless to say I pulled the trigger.

    When it arrived I was actually a little disappointed it was even smaller than it looked on the internet. :/ I have very large hands and I was worried that it was going to be to small to use. Plus how can something that tiny actually do anything and not break.


    Well let me be the first to tell you I was wrong. It is actually perfect for keychain use. The blade is small but very functional for opening boxes and small projects. Obviously I would'nt use it to process a deer but for small stuff around the house it works great. It will also save my main EDC blade from doing task that might damage it.

    The pliers have also already come in handy. They are spring loaded and come with a nice tip for fine detail work.

    I have also used the scissors for cut my nails and small pieces of thread around the house.

    Overall I am very pleases with this little tool. Hopefully it will be on my keychain for years to come. O did I mention that this thing only weighs 2 ozs? It's leterally the size of my house key! It's awesome!

    Pretty cool. I never use my leatherman wingman in my bag, well not often enough to justify it. I had a gerber dime but its not quite the same quality as the leatherman seems to be.

    I have the Dime and it would be perfect if the pliers were spring loaded like that Squirt. That's a nice feature to have on a small tool.

    Yep if it didn't it would be very difficult for me to operate with my large hands .

    Great tool. I like the version with the file and without the knife, I use it for fishing.

    This one has a file also. Didn't know you could get it without the knife.

    I keep one of these in the tin inside my belt kit. It is a handy little multi-tool.

    Squirt PS4 is a highly undervalued EDC tool. It's truly a lot of tool in a very small package.

    I had heard and seen that an issue with the Dime is that as it is opened and closed over time, it actually wears against itself and causes damage. Basically a fit and finish/design and quality issue.

    Seems a decent tool otherwise.
