For every job there is a right tool, and thousands of wrong tools. I had a Gunny that was very fond of reminding everyone to use the right tool for the job.
I have a garage full of specialized tools, and it really does make any job a lot easier when you have a tool designed specifically for what you are doing. Crimson Trace has partnered with CRKT to come up with a specialized multi-tool. This is one that I certainly want to add to my toolkit.
