Hands down the best tool I've ever owned. It's been in my pocket every day for 10 years. I am lost without it. Exceptionally well made. Blades are one-hand operable and all tools lock. It has never let me down, even under borderline abuse. IMO, only the leatherman charge series beats it, but at a considerably higher price for better blade steel (which, In retrospect given the use I get out of it, would be a bargain even at 5 times the cost). I literally choose clothing only on the condition that I can carry my leatherman comfortably in the pocket! Pliers are solid. Exchangable screwdriver bits are durable and work well. Scissors work great. I've fixed many eyeglasses with the the eyeglass tool. All tools deploy smoothly even after 10 years of punishment. Detachable pocket clip is great. Wire cutters have endured heavy use. Saw is sharp still, and the file, even the diamond side is in tact (I've sharpened everything from lawnmower blades to axes with it). I removed the integrated pop out lanyard attachment (that I don't use) which allowed me to put tweezers from a Leatherman Squirt in its place (beneath the file). Fits great, doesn't get in the way, never falls out.

When I think of full-size multi-tools, this is the go-to. Everything you need. Few things you don't. Love the outside-accessible, locking blades and bit drivers, both large and small. These have been in every one of our emergency kits for 3+ years now.

Amazing multitool; I wouldn't be able to live without it. It is so incredibly useful for everyday tasks and because of it's tough design, I know that it would never fail me. The only negative things I have to say about it is the weight, as it can be a bit heavy and bulky in your pocket. It also has no tools for nail care, unlike Swiss Army Knives. Both of these points, however, should hardly be considered because this tool is too useful not to have in your life.

This was the very start of my EDC. My father gifted mean original wave to me when I turned 16 I wore that one every day for years. When I upgraded to the New Wave when it came out in 2004, back then it was only about $60. I have carried that one every day since to include 12 months in the middle east. I might replace the blade with a 154cm or s30v blade, but after over 12 years of daily use, I have to say I am very happy.

One of the best multis made by Leatherman. Could only be improved by adding a fire tool.

What haven't I used this for......... It goes everywhere with me or in my vehicle. I really like the build quality and the feel of this multi tool.

Got this multi-tool for my birthday in '15. The best multi-tool I have ever owned. Read about it for months before deciding to buy and it was worth every penny. Has all the tools needed for the average joe. Not only a great multi-tool but Leatherman has a great no hassle warranty. The small screwdriver tip broke on mine and they sent out a replacement and spare with no trouble at all.
