Factors to consider when buying a personalised multi tool

If you’re looking to purchase a reliable multi tool, there are several factors you need to bear in mind before spending your money. 

Firstly, always be mindful of the size and weight of your chosen model since comfort plays a critical role when using such items regularly. 

Secondly, you should consider getting one with more than just basic features that come with various other helpful options; however, keep in mind that this would also mean extra bulkiness in your pocket or bag. 

Thirdly, make sure that you opt for high-quality materials like stainless steel or titanium so that it lasts longer while meeting heavy-duty requirements efficiently without any damage whatsoever over time. Finally: decide based on pricing range offered by reputable brands within industry standards after having evaluated its capabilities against competing products.

A history of Leatherman, the original Multi Tool

Humbling Beginnings of Leatherman

The story of Leatherman multi tools is a captivating tale that revolves around innovation, skilled craftsmanship and the unwavering spirit of its founder, Timothy S. Leatherman. Born in 1950 Tim Leatherman was a man known for his ingenuity and foresight and his quest to create the iconic Leatherman multi tool began in the 1970s.

During a road trip, through Europe alongside his wife Chau Tims imagination was sparked by frustration. As an engineer and tinkerer himself he found it increasingly bothersome that there wasn’t an compact tool of handling various everyday tasks. It was then that he envisioned a device that seamlessly combined tools like knives, pliers, screwdrivers and more into one portable package. This initial idea would eventually pave the way for the birth of the Leatherman tool.

In 1983 after years dedicated to development and numerous prototyping stages Tim Leatherman partnered with his college friend Steve Berliner to establish Leatherman Tool Group Inc. Their shared mission focused on creating a multi tool that offered both functionality and reliability. The culmination of their efforts resulted in their groundbreaking product—the Pocket Survival Tool (PST)—which made its debut in 1983.

The Leatherman PST gained a reputation, for its quality and usefulness marking a standard for multi tools.

As its popularity grew Leatherman made improvements and expansions to its product line. In 1994 they introduced the Leatherman Wave, which featured locking blades an design and additional tools. The Wave quickly became a seller solidifying Leathermans position as an industry leader.

Leatherman demonstrated their commitment to quality and durability by using high grade materials like steel and maintaining their dedication to American manufacturing. Their tools were renowned for their toughness and ability to withstand years of use in conditions.

Throughout the years Leatherman continued to innovate and diversify their range of products. They developed tools tailored for enthusiasts, military personnel, law enforcement professionals and everyday carry enthusiasts. By addressing the needs of their customers Leatherman ensured success and relevance.

In 2012 Leatherman celebrated its anniversary by launching the Leatherman OHT (One Handed Tool). This multi tool allowed users to access all the tools with one hand—a leap forward, in terms of convenience and functionality.
