Top 6 Best Leatherman Multi Tools In 2022 – Reviews

Leatherman is a brand that is known for making high-quality multi-tools. In this article, we will take a look at the top 10 best Leatherman multi-tools for 2022. We will also provide a review of each product.

1. Leatherman Wave Plus

 Leatherman Wave®+ Multi-Tool W/ Nylon Sheath

Leatherman's number one international best seller, The Wave Plus, has all the essential tools.

With 18 tools to choose from, it has everything from a pair of needle-nose pliers pliers, hard wire cutters, an electrical crimper, a saw, 420HC knives, a medium screwdriver, and even a bottle opener to allow you to pop open your favourite beverage after a long day. 

"With one of these in your pocket, you are well equipped to tackle various daily tasks without constantly running to the tool shed," and we think it's the perfect way to sum up this tool, proving why it's such a keen favourite for farm workers , electricians and construction workers. 

Now let's get down to the safety of this product. 'All locking features' means that every tool and knife on the body of the handle, with the exception of the plier head, will lock into place. The all locking design enables the user to operate individual tools safely and effectively. Every feature on this tool can be opened and operated with one hand, making it very easy to use. Surprisingly, it doesn't feel too heavy, and the size means it's handy to carry around in your back pocket.

Overall, we would say it's one of the best multi-tools on the market.

Design Specification:

Primary Blade Length: 2.9 in | 7.37 cm 
Closed Length: 4 in | 10 cm 
Weight: 8.5 oz | 241 g 

 

2. Leatherman Surge

 Leatherman Surge® Multi-Tool

The Leatherman Surge is one of our two largest multi-tools; a real powerhouse, built with Leatherman's largest pliers, longest multi-tool blades, and easy-to-use locks.

Though it's not one of the lightest Leatherman tools, it's a solid tool that could withstand the toughest of tasks.

It has a very impressive 21 tool selection to choose from, and what distinguishes it from the Leatherman Charge, apart from the size, is the Blade Exchanger. This gives you the choice to swap out T-shank tools to customise your multi-tool.

Like the others, the Surge has a locking feature that means every tool and knife on the body will lock into place. However, often people who work near water or on scaffolding attach their tool to a lanyard on their person to avoid losing the tool if it's dropped, so Leatherman has included a secure lanyard ring on the design to prevent this.

Overall, a strong tool and perfect if you're looking for something a little more heavy-duty.

Design Specification:

Primary Blade Length: 3.1 in | 7.87 cm 
Closed Length: 4.5 in | 11.5 cm 
Weight: 12.5 oz | 335 g 

 

3. Leatherman Skeletool

Leatherman Skeletool® KBX Knife

 

The Skeletool is just what you need in one good lookin' package with its striking design.

This handy little tool has the 7 basic features you need to get the small jobs done. It includes a pair of pliers, hard wire cutters, a combo knife kit, a bit driver and, of course, the good old bottle opener, which is actually a great way to clip the tool onto your belt loop too.

The lightweight feel of the tool makes it one of the most practical multi-tools on the market. Conveniently, it also stores Leatherman tool bits in the handle of your multi-tool for easy access in the middle of a job, or for safe keeping when not in use.

It's also worth mentioning that it features a removable clip to wear the tool in a pocket or belt loop without the use of a sheath! Needless to say, good things come in small packages with this Leatherman product.

Design Specification:

Blade Length: 2.6 in | 6.60 cm 
Closed Length: 4 in | 10 cm 
Weight: 5 oz | 142 g 

 

4. Leatherman Wingman

Leatherman Wingman® Multi-Tool W/ Nylon Sheath

The Leatherman Wingman is just that: your go-to tool for projects around the house, on the job, or at the campsite. A great, lightweight, pocket-sized, stainless steel tool.

This Leatherman tool has 14 features, and though many are similar to the other products, this particular model comes with three different screwdrivers: Phillips, small, and medium. It also has a set of spring action scissors which can be used one-handedly. 

This particular model comes with a nylon sheath and removeable pocket clips, making it easy to attach to a belt buckle or tool belt. It has a knife blade that locks into place when fully deployed. However, a user must manually unlock the blade to fold it away.

It's a little lower priced than the above tools, so it would be a great addition if you're looking for something that gets the job done within a budget, or perhaps a great gift idea to introduce someone to the world of Leatherman tools.

Design specification:

Blade Length: 2.6 in | 6.6 cm
Closed Length: 3.8 in | 9.7 cm
Weight: 7 oz | 198.4 g 

 

5. Leatherman Charge TTi

 Leatherman Charge®+ TTi Stainless Steel Multi-Tool W/ Nylon Sheath

The Charge Plus TTi is ready for jobs big and small. Titanium handles make the tool lightweight and strong, and an ultra-sharp S30V steel knife blade resists corrosion.

It has a sleek design, which makes it not only a versatile tool but also looks great on your work belt.

It features 19 tools, including a serrated knife, replaceable wire cutters, a cutting hook, screwdriver selection, and many more. 

This multi-tool features tools that are accessible while the tool is in its folded or closed position, mimicking the functionality of a pocket knife.

Many positive reviews described this multi-tool as "a top-end multi tool that delivers the quality you'd expect from Leatherman".

Overall, a great all-rounder; though it is more on the high end of the price spectrum, it is a substantial, long-lasting multi-tool that makes no compromises.

Closed Length: 4 in | 10 cm

It's an upgraded version of the P2 and has an impressive 21 tool selection; premium wire cutters, serrated knives, spring action scissors, etc, everything you need to help you round the farm. Even though it has a range of tools included, it feels fairly lightweight and compact.

Leatherman FREE’s revolutionary magnetic locking system allows smooth, quick access to tools and is accessible on the outside, allowing you to easily open tools with one hand.
