It Just Keeps Working...
My story is quite simple. When I started in Law Enforcement 25 years ago, one of the first items I bought when I hit the streets was a Leatherman tool. Everyone had a folding pocket knife, but I wanted something more because I knew I'd be doing more than cutting. At the time, I believe there were only one or two models available and I got the one that my local cop shop had in stock. Stainless steel body, knife, pliers, Phillips, straight slot screw drivers and a file. The tool didn't even come with a case; it fit very nicely in a .380 magazine pouch (which still sits on my gun belt today).
The tool that spawned it all. Our original Pocket Survival Tool® would set records for years to come.
