Out here in Oregon, we're used to getting things done - you could call it our pioneering spirit. It's just how we do things. It's the reason Tim Leatherman built his first multi-purpose tool, and why Leatherman Tool Group has made a promise to our community to stay local. Why? Well, we're proud to support U.S. workers who are dedicated to the quality craftsmanship that goes into each of our original American multi-tools, just like our founder.

Leatherman Tool Timeline
PST - The Original
The PST is the original Leatherman tool. Packs a dozen essential tools into one compact package. Continual improvements have enhanced screwdriver performance and added a hard-wire cutting notch. Comes in standard or black finishes and a cap-crimper model. Tim Leatherman's original invention is as handy as ever. (Retired 2004)
The Mini-Tool is the world's smallest multipurpose tool with full-size, full-strength pliers. Our unique folding handle design makes both comfort and small size possible. Slip it into your jeans pocket or wear it with an optional belt sheath. Available in standard brushed stainless finish or black finish. (Retired 2004)
The Super Tool® is the biggest, strongest multi-purpose tool in our line. All blades have a unique locking mechanism, which is the toughest, most precise locking mechanism available on any multi-purpose tool. Its heavy-duty capabilities make the Super Tool® especially useful for the professional, but anyone who needs the extra safety of ten locking blades will be glad to have this workhorse at their fingertips. (Retired 2001)
Leatherman's most popular keychain tool is now America's most celebrated! Introducing the special-edition Leatherman Micra with a commemorative stars and stripes design. Spring-action scissors and 9 additional, easy-to-use tools make this a must-have accessory.
If you're gearing up for fishing, the PST II is ready to go, with a superior array of features. Sharpen your hook on the smooth diamond-coated surface of the file. With its combination straight/serrated knife blade, tough scissors, four screwdrivers, and more, the PST II belongs in your tackle box. (Retired 2004)
Wave - Original
Wave has more features than any other Leatherman and offers easy access to four locking blades without opening the tool. The interior is loaded with seven additional tool blades. Its smooth, rounded handles are the most comfortable we've ever produced. Wave is the top of the Leatherman line. (Retired 2004)
The first thing you notice about Sideclip is the handy clip. No sheath is needed; the tool can be clipped almost anywhere for instant access. This feature is unique in the Leatherman line. Slim design, matte finish, and an attractive price make Sideclip an excellent choice. (Retired 2004)
Vise grip pliers that fold away make the Leatherman Crunch unlike any multi-tool available today. The Crunch clamps up to a 1-inch diameter pipe, and if you remove the adjusting screw, you'll find a hex-bit adapter built right in. With locking blades that release with the push of a button, the Crunch will take a bite out of any job.
A professional-style corkscrew, spreader knife and cocktail fork make Flair the ultimate picnic tool. In addition, Flair offers a full array of screwdrivers, scissors, knife blade and, of course, tough Pliers with wire cutters. Whether it's tightening a bolt or popping a cork, Flair gets the job done right. (Retired 2002)
Pulse makes things simple and safe with every blade easily locked and released. Just slide back the lock release on the outside of the handle. We've combined popular features, comfortable handles, and our most popular 4" size into an all-around winner. (Retired 2004)
Super Tool 200
We've upgraded the classic Super Tool to include rounded handles and a sliding lock release on the outside for easy access. The serrated knife blade is rounded at the tip for safety. The Super Tool 200 is ideal for professional users. (Retired 2006)
The Juice line of tools was Leatherman’s first go at color using anodized aluminum handle scales. The S2 features a nice large pair of scissors and the C2, Cs4, and Xe6 all feature a wine opener. All the models range in number of features from the least number (slimmest model) the S2 up to the Xe6 with 18 tools-in-one. The Juice tools are the perfect size for a pocket or purse and have made their way onto many adventures from picnics in the local park to backcountry logging and mountain biking. (Kf4 Retired 2006)
The Leatherman Squirt P4 is the first miniature pliers multi-tool tough enough to be a Leatherman. Attach the spring-action Squirt P4 to your key ring or backpack; with three screwdrivers, wire cutters, a knife blade and more, it keeps your on-the-go life going. The Squirt P4 is tiny, tough and 100% Leatherman. (Retired 2010)
When it comes to convenience, it's tough to top the Leatherman Squirt S4. Spring-action scissors are great for cutting even fine materials. Other features: tweezers, knife, screwdrivers, and more, are all available without opening the tool. At a mere 2.25 inches, the colorful Squirt S4 does a great job of staying out of the way until you need it. (Retired 2010)
The Leatherman Squirt E4 is one handy and unique key-chain size multi-tool. The E4 sets you up with 20GA, 18GA, 16GA, 14GA and 12GA wire strippers and electrical wire cutters to handle all kinds of precise jobs. The gripping edges on the Squirt E4's spring-action pliers help you get a firm grasp on fuses, small cables, and many hard-to-reach items. (Retired 2010)
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.
It's time to expect more from a multi-tool, and the Charge Ti gives it to you. With a superior design and top-end materials nobody else offers, the Leatherman Charge is made for those who insist on carrying the best. Stronger, more useful, more versatile. Charge takes your adventure to the next level. (Retired 2006)
For the most ambitious outdoorsman and for the most demanding professional, the Charge XTi is the ultimate in multi-tool performance. The best materials - like 154CM knife steel and titanium handles, plus added strength and versatility make the Charge XTi the new standard for excellence in multi-tools. See for yourself why more people rely on genuine Leatherman tools. (Retired 2006)
Loaded with our most requested features, the Leatherman Blast is ready for work. Longer blades mean easier slicing, sawing, filing and more, while Zytel® handle inserts provide a comfortable, reliable grip. New designs for the handles and pliers help Blast sustain more than double the squeezing load of the original PST. With the Blast, even small hands can get themselves around the biggest jobs comfortably.
The Leatherman Fuse features an all-blade locking system that is 50% stronger than our original locks, with a one-at-a-time blade selection that gets you just the tool you want. With a slim chassis and an assortment of the most-needed tools, the Fuse is perfect for smaller hands, putting portability and functionality at the forefront.
Efficiency is the name of the game with the Leatherman Kick. Thoughtful engineering means blades are longer, sharper, and stronger. A tapped screw allows you to choose a pocket clip (sold separately) instead of a belt sheath. The Kick has the same super-strong pliers as larger Leatherman tools, but with a narrow shape and light weight. The Kick is perfect for smaller hands with big jobs to do.
The Leatherman Surge is one of our two largest multi-tools; a real powerhouse, built with our largest pliers, longest multi-tool blades and easy-to-use locks. A unique blade exchanger, large and small bit drivers and four outside-opening blades give you quick access to the tools you use most. The Surge was built for tough jobs and the hands that do them.
The Leatherman Core is the ultimate tool for your toughest jobs. One of two Leatherman 4.5" tools, the Core has our most powerful pliers, longer blades, and easy-to-use locks. It's also the first Leatherman to feature hollow-ground screwdrivers in the standard sizes that professionals use. The Core's comfortable handles are rounded to give even the biggest hands a firm grip on the toughest jobs. (Retired 2010)
C, E, K and H-Series Knives
In 2005 Leatherman introduced their first series of pocket knives. There were two types of steel used in these models and two different frame sizes. The K and H series knives were larger with a 3.1” blade and the C and E series knives smaller with a 2.8” blade. The K and E series knives had premium 154CM stainless steel blades and the C and H models had regular 420HC stainless steel. There were various features across all models including carabiners that could be stowed in the handle to bit drivers with multiple bits or fixed screwdrivers in different sizes. These knives were some of the first on the market to incorporate tool-like features into a standard pocket knife frame.
Whether you're maintaining a garden or a trail, the Leatherman Hybrid pruner multi-tool puts convenience and a whole lot more at your fingertips. The compact, folding tool frees up space and cuts out unnecessary time spent searching for stand-alone tools. Pruners, screwdrivers, saws, a knife, and more are right there in the handle. The Hybrid is the perfect fusion of tool and pruner. (Retired 2009)
The Leatherman Vista hunting pruners put high-quality shears and the added benefit of multi-tool versatility at your fingertips. The compact, folding tool frees up space and includes a unique open-tooth design saw that resists "filling up", a tri-purpose choke tube tool, the biggest awl we've ever made, stainless steel construction, and more. Hunters rejoice! (Retired 2009)
When we made the Leatherman Charge TTi, we knew the Charge AL and ALX were just too hard to beat, so we didn't even try. Instead we simply combined them. But we had to give the TTi its own claim to fame, so in addition to all the other Charge features, we gave the TTi premium comfort-sculpted titanium handle scales and the S30V® stainless steel clip-point knife. Who says a multi-tool can't be sexy?
The Leatherman Charge AL includes scissors that slice through just about anything, with beveled edges that allow them to get extra close to whatever you're cutting. Bit drivers for versatility, diamond-coated files for detailed work, and a 154CM clip-point knife are all housed in 6061-T6, hard-anodized aluminum alloy handles. The Charge AL takes the idea of a multi-tool up a notch.
The Leatherman Charge ALX swaps out the Charge AL scissors for an aggressive cutting hook on the back of the serrated blade. Rip through tough materials like seatbelts, linoleum and leather with no problem. Get your hands around the Charge ALX's unbeatable ergonomic grip, outside-accessible blades and premium materials like 154CM and 6061-T6, anodized aluminum.
The hunting knives were named after well-known areas for hunting in the Northwest—the Steens, Klamath, Nehalem and Ukiah wilderness areas. The Steens® and Klamath® knives featured premium S30V® stainless steel blades and rosewood inlay handles. The Nehalem® and Ukiah® had 154CM stainless steel blades and glass-filled Nylon handles. The Steens and Nehalem knives featured a rotating handle that would either expose a full-size gut hook, or full-size, fixed-blade knife. (Retired 2009)

The Genus is simply genius. (Retired 2009)
The Serac line of LED lights, quite simply, had one of the best size-to-performance ratios on the market during its time. There were three models in all, the S1, S2 and S3. All had hard-anodized bodies and stainless steel bezels. The S2 and S3 had multiple functions and textured aluminum reflectors for clean light with no distracting lines. All three models were IPX8 rated. (Retired 2010)
Crater and Expanse Knives
The Crater line of folding knives was designed to be lighter and more streamlined than the original 300 and 500 series knives. The "C" indicates "Crater" series and the "33" or "55" means a medium or large blade. These knives used 420HC stainless steel for blade material and extremely strong, glass-filled nylon for the handle. With a dull blade, a knife is more of a paperweight than a tool. That's why the blades in the Expanse series are crafted from 154CM stainless steel; to keep their edge three times as long as regular stainless steel. Just like the Crater knives, the Expanse models have several integrated features that turn an amazing knife into an amazing tool. From screwdrivers to carabiners and bit drivers, these knives are not just sharp, they're extremely versatile.
Super Tool 300
The award-winning, Leatherman Super Tool 300 is the multi-tool for the working man. Larger pliers are the strongest we've ever produced and the sloped-top handle design means you can maneuver them further into tight spaces. When you're working with gloves on, the large side cutouts make it easy to still grab components and rolled handles make for a comfortable grip. Stranded, hard and regular wire cutters all come standard on Super Tool 300, and because they're removable you can repair or re-sharpen on the spot. 19 tools all ready for your toughest jobs. Super Tool 300 is back from vacation and ready to get to work.
The first thing you'll probably notice with the Leatherman Freestyle is opening the outside-accessible blade is easy and fast, just like a pocket knife. When you unfold it and use the pliers you'll understand that when something is engineered correctly, power isn't a matter of size, but a matter of years of design expertise. Freestyle is great as a stand-alone tool or a companion for those activity-specific tools that don't feature pliers or a knife.
This little knife/tool hybrid is packing one heck of a material list. To start, the Leatherman Freestyle CX features DLC coating for scratch and corrosion resistance, making it great for those adventures that really put your gear to the test. Next the premium 154CM knife blade holds its edge three-times as long as traditional stainless steel. And finally with its powerful jaws, outside-accessible blade, and removable pocket clip, you can use it like a pocket knife, or a multi-tool. And while those last features aren't really 'materials,' we think you'll agree flexibility and adaptability are pretty much priceless any way you look at it.
Monarch was Leatherman’s second (and last) line of LED lights before the parent company, Leatherman Tool Group, Inc., bought LED Lenser from Germany. There were four models in this line, the 200, 300, 400 and 500, all simple on/off ranging from 16-100 lumens. They had machined aluminum bodies and bezels and were rated IPX4. (Retired 2011)
The Leatherman MUT is the first multi-tool that functions as both a tactical and practical tool for military, LE, or civilian shooters. The MUT features multiple areas on the tool threaded for cleaning rods and brushes and all the screwdriver bits are sized for standard military and civilian sighting adjustment work. Also built into the design of the tool is the flexibility to replace the most commonly used parts on the spot, using a simple Torx #8, keeping down-time to a minimum. With all this, a MOLLE sheath and scope adjustment wrench included, the Leatherman MUT may very well be the most efficient and useful piece in your kit.

Super Tool 300 EOD

With the new Super Tool 300 EOD we've got those same beefy features and added EOD-specific tools like a military-performance-spec cap crimpers and fuse-wire cutters. Extra strong pliers with cleaning rod/brush attachments have replaceable wire cutters. Comfort-grip handles feature cutouts to make accessing tools with gloves on a cinch. An everyday carry tool, with some not-so-everyday features.
For years our customers had to choose between the handy little pliers on the original Squirt P4 or the scissors on the Squirt S4. Now you can have both in one lightweight mini-tool that comes in handy for everything from snipping fishing line to wrapping a birthday present on the go.
When the first Squirt E4 came out it seemed so unique to one kind of work we sold it only at specialty electronic stores. As time went on it became so popular and people (as with most Leatherman tools) found it to be so handy for all kinds of jobs, we opened up distribution to all kinds of stores nationwide. Now called the Squirt ES4 we added scissors to the tool making it even more versatile.

For years multi-tool users could choose from two distinct options when it came to a "one-hand-operable" multi-tool: one-hand-opening pliers OR one-hand-opening blades. Today, Leatherman has taken these two well-loved ideas and fused them into the first ever, 100% one-hand-operable multi-tool, the Leatherman OHT. This industry-first tool features spring-loaded pliers and wire-cutters so you don't tire your hand adjusting and readjusting your grip. Handles with visual imprints of the tool beneath make for quick identification.

Replaceable and indexible V-notch cutters can simply be flipped around for a fresh edge on-the-spot, or replaced completely when you're back home.

After all, if you're down to breaking glass, this is not the time to be beating your fist against the window.
