From Father to Son and Beyond
Just a note to say thank you for making such a great tool. I bought a Wave about four or five years ago with some Christmas money from my mother. From maintenance at our church to fishing and camping trips to work around the house, it has done it all. Not long after I bought it, the new Wave with the locking tools and interchangeable bits came out. I could not justify buying another one so soon, even though a tool without a Robertson bit in Canada is a little awkward.
Recently I purchased a Squirt S4, again with Christmas money from my mother. While I was in the store, I looked at the Surge and was very impressed. When I came home, I looked at your website and while I was doing this my wife saw the Micra and thought she might like one. A few days later I bought one for her (in green because they don’t come in purple) after visiting several stores, as not all stores carry all models up here. Again, I looked at the Surge and was even more impressed! But, alas, I still had the same problem. Then it occurred to me that my son is graduating this year and that he needed a Leatherman to help with little (and not so little) fix-up problems in life. My problem was solved! I gave him my old Wave as a grad present. I have asked him to take care of it and to pass it on to any son he may have if it survives (I am sure it will because it so well made). I bought my new Surge and it has already fixed my sunglasses! Now I just have to figure out which Leatherman to get my daughter when she graduates! Oh well I have couple of years yet.
I am printer by trade and as yet do not carry a Leatherman at work (too many specialized tools needed), but am hoping that the new Skeletool might fit the bill. I have to wait until it is in the stores up here to see. Thank you again for making the best multitools in the world.
