Our Leatherman range is extensive and we know that it can be difficult to pick the best tool for you so here are some tips.
How will the tool be used?
It may seem obvious but perhaps the most important question you can ask before you buy is "how will the tool be used?".
For campers, cyclists and hikers in search of a lightweight, versatile companion: try the Skeletool, Skeletool CX, Wave and Juice Range. These offer a great range of tools without being too heavy or bulky to carry wherever you go.
For tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts consider the Supertool 300, Surge and Wave. These are tough tools with the features to handle any job. The Surge and Wave's tools are extendible using the LT27 Bit Driver Kit. At a lower price point is the Rebar.
As a general purpose multitool the whole of the Classic Range is unbeatable with the Leatherman Wave by far and away our most popular tool. If you're unsure which tool to go for then the Wave is probably the safest bet.
Leatherman Produce a few highly specialised tools for the most demanding users. In general if you're reading this these tools probably aren't for you but just in case here's a brief summary.
- Leatherman Military Tools
- A specialist set of tools for military and tactical applications.
- Leatherman Crunch
- The Leatherman Crunch is unique. Designed around a set of Mole Grip Pliers it is designed to be used by plumbers, gas fitters and other tradesmen and offers something that no other multitool can.
- Leatherman E4
- The Leatherman ES4 is designed for electricians. It features several different guage wire strippers, compact pliers, a wire cutter and a small selection of other tools. This makes it ideal for electricians working in tight spaces who nonetheless need a quality tool.
Still not sure?
If you're still not sure which Leatherman to choose then we'd recommend that you look carefully at the Wave as a starting point, it's our most popular tool for good reasons.
If you're looking for a lower price-point than the Wave then the Wingman or a Sidekick might be more desirable. If on the other hand you want more features or something more burly then the Charge or Surge might be more suitable. Finally, if you're after something more compact the Skeletool, Juice and Squirt Ranges offer the same high quality construction in a lighter design.
