Leatherman Tread

Multitools comes in a vast variety of shapes and sizes and certainly have had a lot of changes to them since the first Leatherman was issued. In spite of all those changes the general look and functionality hasn't deviated much. Tools are usually clumped into two categories; Swiss Army style or plier based which is what most people associate with.

Gerber Vs Leatherman

One Hand Tool vs Center-Drive

We all saw Gerber's marketing surrounding the release of the Center-Drive, and amongst the images of tattooed craftsmen re-imagining old world techniques and blending in modern technology, we saw the Center-Drive compared to both the Wave and the OHT. While Gerber's marketing may have been over the top, I don't think it was any worse than Leatherman showing soldiers carrying the OHT, despite the OHT never having been issues to troops anywhere, despite it having been designed specifically to try an usurp Gerber's hold on sliding head plier tool contracts with the military.

I guess what I am saying, is that when you cut out the marketer bullpoo and actually concentrate on the tools themselves, which one is better? Are they both hype, or are they both on the level? Or, one of each?

Leatherman Warranty

WarrantyLike all the major manufacturers, Leatherman has an exceptional warranty- at least in the USA.  Recent issues in the Philippines has brought to light some concerns about Warranty Services outside of the US, and may be of interest to many of our international readers- and a warning to US readers as well, as it brings to light an interesting point that you may not have considered.

What Were They Thinking?

It seems to be generally agreed that Leatherman's offerings from SHOT this year are somewhat lacking given the recent excitement of Gerber's Center-Drive and SOG's entire new multitool lineup.  Their response is basically simplified versions of what they have been producing for years.

Leatherman Mako Ti Fakes

Eatn FakeAs part of the Fantastic Five Dollar Challenge I knowingly purchased what I assumed were fake versions of a few brand name tools.  I did the same during the Two Dollar Challenge last year as well, and I think that it is important to mention that folks really shouldn't be fooled by fakes that come in what appears to be real packaging.

The Right Tool For The Job

20160829 132122 resized by AVG Image ShrinkerMultitool users are always being told to use the right tool for the right job, and I agree for the most part. Whenever possible the right tool (usually a dedicated tool) is preferable to using a multitool, but what about the type of situation where a multitool is the right tool?
