Leatherman is a beautiful American knife brand that mainly focuses on multifunctionality. They are also specialized in Multitools. You can immediately recognize a Leatherman Multitool by their unique design. This design is incredibly efficient and trouble-free that the prototype can still be recognized as a Leatherman Knife.
The Leatherman Surge
The Leatherman Surge can be seen as one of the powerhouses within the Leatherman family. Some even see him as the bigger brother of the Leatherman Wave.
The reasons why are obvious: not just because of the typical (ruler embossed) comfortable grip you get on it, but some of the most commonly used tools are directly accessible from the outside: large, one-handed opening blade, heavy spring-loaded scissors, large fully serrated blade and, to top it off, an interchangeable saw blade. Yes, that's right, via a handy mechanism you can exchange the universal (hardware store!) jigsaw blade for the included diamond-coated file. And they all fall into place. How about that for versatility! And that's exactly what it says on the outside of the tool.
Inside are several (interchangeable) screwdrivers, an awl and a can opener with wire stripper. Still not enough? Well, these days the Surge also has replaceable cutting inserts in its pliers that don't cost much but last a very long time.
Is the Ratchet Driver applicable to the Leatherman Surge?
For those looking for maximum versatility, it can even be combined with Leathermans' relatively new Ratchet Driver via the replaceable screwdriver cap, which allows the operator to use any type of regular screwdriver bits! Go anywhere in the included straps, there really is no more excuse for not getting things done!
THE RENEWED LEATHERMAN FREE SERIES
Based on years of consumer feedback and manufacturing experience, the Leatherman FREE® is a completely redesigned multi-tool. Gone are the days of "breaking in" your multi-tool; the FREE® series is ready to use from day one, yet durable enough to last a lifetime.
The Leatherman FREE® design gives you one-handed access to all tool functions, even with gloves on. This means you can smoothly (and quickly!) open pliers, blades and more without taking your eyes off the task at hand. More importantly, no more fiddling with the handles to find the tool you need - goodbye broken fingernails.
The ease of use and smoothness of the FREE® series is made possible by a not-so-secret ingredient: magnets! This revolutionary magnetic architecture reduces friction when opening and closing tools and significantly reduces component wear. This breakthrough allows us to make stronger locks and more robust tools that extend the life and usability of your Leatherman multi-tool.
