That would mean having 2 Kniplex pliers...... gave up.. :mrgreen:
Maybe I misunderstand you, but KNIPEX is not knife as it is neither sharp nor pointed. And not made for cutting
The multitool is an everyday carry and my understanding is that the Knipex is added to that to assist in tightening nuts and bolts that spin.

The multitool has a locking blade therefore cannot be carried without reasonable excuse,,, hence 2 KNIPEX...

HTH
Two is one and one is none, but three is even better.

Reviews mentioning poor quality control have prevented me getting some of these already. Seems like the 100mm has max width of 21mm and 125 has 24mm which seems like a small increase.

Perhaps I'll pick up the 125 if there's a black Friday deal...
