EDC multi-tool

NEWS – The Leatherman PST was their first multi-tool that was released almost 4 decades ago in 1983. It’s hard to believe that Leatherman started its journey to become the king of multi-tools 38 years ago and now their newest multi-tool is a nod to that original pocket tool. It’s the Leatherman Bond multi-tool which features a classic stainless-steel design with 14 tools that include everything you come to expect from Leatherman tools:

  • Needlenose Pliers
  • Regular Pliers
  • Hard-wire Cutters
  • Wire Cutters
  • Wire Stripper
  • 420HC Blade
  • Awl
  • Can Opener
  • Bottle Opener
  • Wood/Metal File
  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • Medium Screwdriver
  • Small Screwdriver
  • Ruler (4 in | 10 cm)

This is a must-have for your EDC and is backed by a 25-year warranty. Want one? It is priced at a wallet-friendly $49.95 and you can buy one directly through Leatherman.com and Amazon.

  2. Lately it seems like every item you share on Amazon is unavailable. Is that just my bad luck or is something weird going on?

      1. I have the original one from the 80’s with the original leather case. Still works. Although, I use a Surge now.

    1. I have the original Leatherman, my Dad gave one to my brother and I years ago. It’s been back to Leatherman twice. They replaced it both times. Great tool!

  3. I was given a Leatherman Kick (not far off from the PST) over 10 years ago and yes the newer ones are sleeker and more convenient in design but honestly, the kick has never failed including when I go to my mother-in-laws every Christmas where I end up fixing all the little things around the house

    I’m guessing the Bound will be the same for a few people

    1. locking blades are not inherently safer

      if they do their part right a person should come away from the experience unscathed

      the only injuries i’ve seen are when a folding knife is used for stabbing as opposed to cutting…even then though bloody the tops of the fingers are what’s cut…fortunately most of the really delicate stuff is on the other side

      after six decades of “real” work that’s how i see it

  4. I like leatherman tools but one of the biggest complaints I have is that they tend to bind when closing and are prone to pinch hands and fingers

  5. I love Leatherman muti tools
    I’m saddened to see that newer innervation seems to have stalled out in my opinion. I would like to see newer features on redesigned tools.
    The price increase on most of the tools without added features makes it disappointing. I own the wave, super tool, mutt, surge and skeleton to name a few of my collection.
