    Looking for a multi-tool without a knife blade

    Iím looking for a multi-tool with pliers, screw drivers, saw, file. I donít need a knife blade as I always have several to hand. Does anyone make such a thing?

    Leatherman Rebar? (Has a knife blade, though)

    Unless they are TSA approved they will have a knife blade. I like having a regular knife blade on a multi-tool as I use it for the nasty tasks so I don't ruin the edge on my carry knife.

    And if it's part of a tool kit in the backpack or car you have a good cutting edge for general use.....

    Some multi-tools will allow you to replace certain items on them but your average dude wants a knife blade on his multi-tool.

    Other than a pliers I find a SAK can do most of the tasks I would attempt with a multi-tool.

    ...and pliers are what I use most on my multitools. I would not get rid of a knife blade though, without good reason.

    That said. My SOG Power Plier has user replacable tools. I think the OP is stuck with buying and modifying....

    Multi-tool Pliers usually suck because they are such a compromise to work everything else in, and the blades aren't usually much better.
    I solved the issue myself by creating my own set of compact tools and I'll share a few of them here to perhaps inspire you.

    I started with a Leatherman SuperTool, tore it down to parts and then reassembled what I wanted, packed into a single arm.




    For Pliers I use the small Knipex Cobra Pliers which are vastly superior to any multitool on the market, and most normal pliers to boot.





    And I cut and ground down a small pry bar to make a pocket pry bar.




    While those three tools take up more space than a single Multi-tool I can do a shit load more work with them with a lot less cussing.

    I've been carrying a pair of CeeTee pliers in a pliers pouch since I was a kid on the farm. When I retired and took up the handyman gig, I added an 8-way screw driver in pouch to my belt. So I am with you on everything except "a lot less cussing." Haven't managed that yet.😁

    Chased my own tail on this a bit. Buy the multi-tool you want and just cut off the blade.

    Or grind off the edge. I used to do some work with guys in a factory that wouldn't allow knives. They all had Leathermans with the edges ground off the blades.
