I AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
A great choice for first-time users, the original Portland, Oregon multi-tool manufacturer is making you your very own Sidekick. This handy pocket-sized tool has all the features you need to get your project done, at a fraction of the cost. The handy, outside-accessible blades mean you can open the knife with just one hand and rounded handles make getting a grip around their all-new, spring-action jaws easy and very comfortable. Stainless steel and backed by a 25-year warranty; first choice, or handy second backup, you can't beat the value of the Sidekick.

Sidekick® Tools

  1. Spring-action Needlenose Pliers

    A precise cast pinching tool for holding or manipulating materials, ideal for small objects or tight spaces, that automatically spring back to the open position when not being used. Spring-loaded tools are helpful for reducing hand fatigue that can occur when manually adjusting the grip on the tool with one hand.

  2. Spring-action Regular Pliers

    A precise cast pinching tool for holding or manipulating materials, that automatically spring back to the open position when not being used. Spring-loaded tools are helpful for reducing hand fatigue that can occur when manually adjusting the grip on the tool with one hand.

  3. Spring-action Wire Cutters

    Bypassing cutting blades meant for cutting regular-gauge wire, that automatically spring back to the open position when not being used. Spring-loaded tools are helpful for reducing hand fatigue that can occur when manually adjusting the grip on the tool with one hand.

  4. Wire Stripper

    A useful notch for safely stripping multiple types of wire.

  5. 420HC Knife

    A knife crafted from 420HC, a high-carbon stainless steel that is corrosion resistant and can be easily maintained.

  6. 420HC Serrated Knife

    A toothed blade crafted from 420HC stainless steel. Serrations grab and cut materials easily, making this style of blade exceptionally useful for cutting through rope or fiber.

  7. Saw

    A toothed tool made from 420HC stainless steel that is designed to work on a pull motion, which requires less effort and has less propensity for breakage. The open-tooth design keeps the saw from filling up with material, allowing the user to complete a job without pausing to clean the tool.

  8. Ruler (1.5 in | 3.8 cm)

    A precise measuring guide for determining length in inches or centimeters, up to 1.5 inches or 3.8 centimeters.

  9. Can Opener

    A lever/punch style tool to assist in opening canned goods, perfect for camping or in survival situations. The blade on this tool has been ground in a way that it pushes the cut metal into the rim, keeping sharp edges from cutting the user as the can is handled.

  10. Bottle Opener

    A tool that allows the user to pop the top on a favorite beverage.

  11. Wood/Metal File

    A 420HC stainless steel tool with a crisscross pattern that forms a rough surface for the user to file or smooth both wood and metal surfaces. The file pattern on Leatherman files is extended to the end of the file as well as down the side to give a file stoke and/or a more precise file edge.

  12. Phillips Screwdriver

    Created originally by Henry F. Phillips, this screwdriver is for use on Phillips head screws.

  13. Medium Screwdriver

    A flat bladed screwdriver tooled from 420HC stainless steel, intended for use on medium slotted screws.

  14. Small Screwdriver

    A flat bladed screwdriver tooled from 420HC stainless steel, intended for use on small slotted screws.

Sidekick® Features

  1. Lanyard Ring

    This secure ring is for attaching the tool safely and securely to a lanyard. 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.

  2. Replaceable Pocket Clip

    A removable clip which allows the user to wear their multi-tool attached to a pocket or belt loop without the use of a sheath. By removing the clip, the user is able to easily carry their tool in a sheath if preferred.

  3. Outside-accessible Features

    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.

  4. One-hand Operable Features

    Every feature on this tool can be opened and operated with one hand. This enables the user to keep the other hand free for situations that require multi-tasking or a free hand.

Comments about Sidekick:

With its main knife conveniently accessible when folded, the Sidekick is designed for practicality. It carries nicely in the pocket without chafing when seated in the car/truck.

I have both the Sidekick and Wingman and without a doubt prefer the Sidekick. I like that the blade is non-serrated and have a saw instead of scissors.

As a landscaper, I'd use my hand pruners over the saw for branches up to half the length of the saw blade, but I do use it for cutting 3/4 inch PVC pipe and hoses when there is no pipe cutter around.

The main blade has gone through some rough work! I use it to poke breathing holes in chemical jugs, slice through roots and dirt when transplanting plants, has trimmed sod edges, opened packages, whittled wood, and cut my leftovers at lunch.

The pliers work for pulling out fish hooks, pulling out slivers, and tying up bait in safe/live traps.

Every tool has been used at one time or another.

I like the fact that there aren't any bits with it. They get lost by me really quick, so their use is lost on me. (Plus the Phillips heads usually break quickly as well.)

If anything, I wish the Sidekick was priced the same as the Wingman. To be honest here, I don't understand the ten dollar difference. It's a small matter.

I'd also like to know how to clean it properly. Throwing it in the dishwasher all folded up invites rust, and hand washing it still leaves moisture at the pivot points and inside the "pockets" of the main blade and saw. Oiling helps, but there's got to be a better way.

Even with this, the Sidekick is my constant carry tool. I find myself using it at work, out hiking, around town, and even at picnics.

The best moment came when a friend asked why I took it with me on vacation. Every day that week he ended up asking to borrow the Sidekick for one task or another. He plans on getting one for himself.
