Did you know that the original Leatherman multi-tool wasn’t called the Leatherman? The prototype for the now-famous tool was called Mr.Crunch, but one of the main tools, a double pair of pliers, was too expensive to manufacture back in 1975. Now Leatherman is bringing back this iconic lost feature and combining it with their most advanced multi-tool to date, the FREE P4($149.95). Mr. Crunch is the inaugural release from Leatherman’s Garage series. The stainless steel multi-tool uses the same FREE magnetic technology used in the FREE P4. It allows for quick, one-handed access to 21 different tools. The tools include:

  • Bluntnose Pliers
  • Premium Replaceable Wire Cutters
  • Premium Replaceable Hard-wire Cutters
  • Electrical Crimper
  • Wire Stripper
  • 420HC Knife
  • Spring-action Scissors
  • Package Opener
  • Awl
  • Can Opener
  • Bottle Opener
  • Wood/Metal File
  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • Medium Screwdriver
  • Small Screwdriver
  • Extra-small Screwdriver
  • Pry Tool
  • Ruler (1.41 in | 25 mm)
  • Chisel
  • Small Bit Dr with Eyeglasses Screwdriver

And, of course, the iconic double pliers, which snap into place when deployed and stow away when they’re not needed. It also comes with a Heritage Mr. Crunch leather sheath. 

The limited-edition Leatherman Mr.Crunch multi-tool sells for $199. You can head over to for more info or to purchase.
