Locking pliers that fold away make the Leatherman Crunch unlike any multi-tool available today. The Crunch clamps up to a 1-inch diameter pipe, and if you remove the adjusting screw, you'll find a hex-bit adapter built right in. With locking blades that release with the push of a button, the Crunch will take a bite out of any job.

Crunch® Tools

  1. Regular Pliers

    A cast pinching tool for holding or manipulating materials.

  2. Locking Pliers

    Fold-away pliers that will clamp and lock up to a 1-inch diameter pipe. The pliers are easily loosened or tightened by adjusting screw at the base of the tool.

  3. Hard-wire Cutters

    Bypassing cutting blades ideal for cutting hard wire.

  4. Wire Cutters

    420 HC stainless steel bypass cutting blades, meant for cutting regular-gauge wire.

  5. Wire Stripper

    A useful notch for safely stripping multiple types of wire.

  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. Ruler

    A precise guide for determining length and other measurements.

  8. Pin Vice

    A groove on the surface of one of the Crunch plier heads that can be used to hold a round item, such as wire or a fish hook, in place. A pin vice can also be used for tying fly fishing flies.

  9. Bottle Opener

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

  10. 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.

  11. 1/4” Hex Bit Driver

    This slot allows for use of conventional 1/4" hex bits to expand the functionality of the tool.

  12. Phillips Screwdriver

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

  13. Large Screwdriver

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

  14. Medium Screwdriver

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

  15. Small Screwdriver

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

Crunch® Features

  1. All Locking Features

    All locking features means that every tool and knife on the body of the handle, with the exception of the plier head, will lock into place. Note that the Crunch; however, does feature both all locking tools and plier head. The all locking design enables the user to operate individual tools safely and effectively. By locking them into place when fully open, the user can put pressure on the implement while safely completing the job, before manually unlocking the tool to stow it away.

  2. 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.

Great Idea But Needs a Few Improvements

Comments about Crunch:

Pros:
The vise grips indeed grip well once clamped.
The serrated knife is very handy for multiple functions.
The hex drive in the end of the tool is handy driver.
Great all (almost) around tool to keep on your hip.

Cons:

Vise grips must be assembled but often come apart during clamping process just before vise engages. They require pressure to stay together.

KEY COMPLAINT - Missing the can opener with wire stripper (As others have said as well). This is the one item that makes this tool fail as an all around tool. Adding this item would be a KEY IMRPOVEMENT to a great tool.

File breaks more easily than thought, but warranty covers that.

The bottle opener is really lousy at opening bottle with tight crimps. The hook to get under the caps is just a little too big so it slips off and isn't able to really get underneath the lip of the crimp so it slips off. Take care or you'll have a flying beer (or other...) bottle when this happens.

There is no place to keep a hex bit or two. With extra room in a few places, it would be great to carry the single or two bits that you find most useful. For me it would be a Square #2 bit first and a #3 Phillips, 1/4" socket driver, or 2.5mm Hex as the second.

Overall:

I would recommend this for someone who does a lot of different projects. A casual user will probably find a Leatherman with needle nose pliers handier, but when you really need to grab on to something, this does the job quite well.

If you are on a road trip or anywhere mechanical failure is possible, a vise grip always beats a needle nose. Now if they would only add the cool can opener with the wire shaver, it would become great for camping, outdoors, survival, etc.

Poor design

By Emm Zed

from Arizona

About Me Do-It-Yourselfer

Pros

  • Compact/Easy to Carry
  • Handle Comfort
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Difficult to Use
  • Poor Construction
  • Poor Design

Best Uses

  • None

Comments about Crunch:

These are either poorly designed or poorly constructed, take your pick. Every time I try to use the pliers I have to manually move them into the proper position so they will clamp down. I also can't understand how Leatherman gets away with calling them a heavy duty pliers when they are smaller than everyone of their full size multitools by a substantial margin. I don't recommend this tool at all.
