Anything better than a Leatherman - I don't think so.....

Whether its for botching a broken car or fixing some broken sunglasses in the middle of the desert, the Leatherman has earned the respect for being a truly multi tool. Since 1975 Tim Leatherman has wanted to create the best multi-tool available, and personally i think he has succeeded. The leatherman boasts an efficient design, comfortable grip, precise tools - which are secure, ultra sharp and perfectly aligned. The attention to detail has allowed Leatherman to offer a 25 year guarantee with all its products, something that's rare in our throw away society.

The design is simple to use yet elegant and safe. The sharp looking blade - believe it or not - is less likely to cut you, as it requires less effort to perform the task. Leatherman tools are made from 100% stainless steel to provide years of dependable service. Each 400-series stainless implement is heat treated to optimal hardness for its function. The knives and files are typically tempered to Rockwell C 57 to achieve excellent edge retention.

The 34 years of manufacturing experience has allowed for a tool that can do more than you expect from a first glance. For example, a specially adapted Phillips screwdriver means it can be used on both No.1 and No.2 sized screws.
The regular torture tests and rigorous quality control mean that you are owning a piece of quality when purchasing a Leatherman.
Matt - out.
