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.
