I am looking for a nice smaller bike multi tool with a knife blade in it to carry all the time. On and off the bike. I am always messing with a bike or something so I carry a small multi tool plus a knife right now so it would be nice to combine the two.
I use a pocket knife way more than any multi-tool, and very much prefer having a separate knife. Even when I carry a leatherman that incorporates a knife, I still have a separate knife clipped into my waistband or pocket.
The Mako is pretty limited as far as bike tools go. But I wouldn't want to drag a Crank Brothers 19-function tool around in my pocket all the time. The Mako is slim and weighs less than one-eighth of the Multi19. I would, though, very much want to add a 5mm wrench and a chain tool--things the Mako lacks.
The Lezyne CRV 20. Every tool you'll ever need for a road or mountain bike, plus a descent sized serrated knife. Also comes in an (expensive) carbon side plate version to keep it light - might be worth it if you're carrying it around with you all the time.
