Description
The Leatherman Wave multi-tool is hands down our most popular model, made famous by its outside-accessible blades that can be deployed with just one hand. When we redesigned it in 2004, we 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.

More about Leatherman

The tool that started it all. The Leatherman was the first of its kind, creating a category of products that have kept people ready for the unexpected for over 34 years. Tim Leatherman (an Oregon native) received his Mechanical Engineering degree from Oregon State University. While on a budget trip to Europe in 1974, Tim and his wife Chau constantly came across leaky hotel plumbing and road-side fixes for their cranky Fiat. Tim realized the need for a pliers based, multi-purpose tool. "I was carrying a scout knife and used it for everything from slicing bread to fixing the car. But I kept wishing I had a pair of pliers!". When Tim came back to the states, he took his �multi-tool� idea, some sketches he made on the trip and got to work. When Tim started on the prototype for this new tool, he estimated it�d take him a month. Instead, it took the next three years to build the prototype he envisioned and secure a patent. With the newly patented �Mr. Crunch�, he set off to sell his idea. Unfortunately, the companies he approached didn�t bite. Knife companies thought his invention was a tool, and tool companies thought it was a gadget; neither were interested. For another three and a half years, Tim faced one rejection letter after another. Until he partnered with his college friend, Steve Berliner, and in the spring of 1983, they received their first order for 500 tools from Cabela's and launched the Leatherman brand.
