Made In The USA - Leatherman
Since 1983, Leatherman has been making tools that can endure just about anything and come back to work tomorrow. When Tim Leatherman and his business partner Steve Berliner started the company with the Pocket Survival Tool (PST) they had no idea that someday they would have more than 30 models and a full 90,000 square-foot facility here in Portland, Oregon with more than 400 employees.
The PST is the original Leatherman tool. Packs a dozen essential tools into one compact package. Continual improvements have enhanced screwdriver performance and added a hard-wire cutting notch. Comes in standard or black finishes and a cap-crimper model. Tim Leatherman's original invention is as handy as ever.
In 1986 they introduced the Mini-Tool which is the world's smallest multipurpose tool with full-size, full-strength pliers. Our unique folding handle design makes both comfort and small size possible. Slip it into your jeans pocket or wear it with an optional belt sheath. Available in standard brushed stainless finish or black finish. In 1994 they followed up with the Super Tool® which is the biggest, strongest multi-purpose tool in their line. All blades have a unique locking mechanism, which is the toughest, most precise locking mechanism available on any multi-purpose tool. Its heavy-duty capabilities make the Super Tool® especially useful for the professional, but anyone who needs the extra safety of ten locking blades will be glad to have this workhorse at their fingertips.
The Leatherman Wave multi-tool is hands down their most popular model, made famous by its outside-accessible blades that can be deployed with just one hand. The New Wave was redesigned it in 2004, and they gave the new Wave larger knives, stronger pliers, longer wire cutters, and all-locking blades. Perfect for any job, adventure, or everyday task, the Wave multi-tool is an international best-seller.
2011 saw the introduction of the handy Style PS which is one unique, travel-friendly, multi-tool. With spring-action pliers, a file, scissors, tweezers, bottle opener and mini-screwdriver, you'll never be without your most necessary tools; now even when you travel! Fits in a pocket or clips on your pack or bag for easy portability. So stylish it's almost a shame it fits so easily in your pocket.
