Gerber makes a multi-tool for demolition explosive technicians that has a blasting cap crimper in its pliers. I probably find that cooler than is warranted.
Dealmonger: Gerber’s Demolition Explosive Technician’s Multi-Tool For $79 [Toolmonger]
Had the old one years ago. Loved it. They told us to “never” crimp caps or det-cord with it. We did it all the time and we never went boom. Also that price is incredibly good.
Just don’t take it on the plane with you when you fly, eh?
Is this what the guys had that rigged the C4 for 9/11?
Where’s the cork screw?
It is a beautiful looking tool, I’ll say.
a tool? for capping? just use your teeth!
SOG makes one too, which I prefer to the Gerber because you don’t lose the gripping teeth.
I am currently in Iraq, and I use it every day.
I used to use a Gerber (also stationed overseas with the army), but the damn thing rusted, then snapped. I much prefer the more sturdy Leatherman or the more traditional Victorianox (sic?). SOGs are pretty good too, but a little expensive.
