Leatherman multi-tools are made for adventure seekers, fixers, law enforcement officers, service members and outdoors enthusiasts. Tim Leatherman invented his plier-based multi-tool because he was disappointed with the basic pocket knife. Leatherman used his pocket knife for everything. But the pocket knife just wasn't cutting it. He longed for a more useful survival tool. In 1983, Leatherman introduced his solution to the problem with his first plier-based multi-tool. Today, the company offers many styles with different weights and sizes featuring pliers, wire cutters, knives, can openers and many other valuable instruments. Masterfully crafted out of durable materials, these multi-tools will excel in any challenge you throw at them.
