Exploring, learning, doing: introducing the Leatherman Leap, the first Leatherman multi-tool created specifically for younger users. Our engineers designed the Leap with safety as our #1 priority. That’s why the Leap includes safety locks that keep fingers from the path of the tools, a two-hand opening knife blade for safer deployment, and a secure grip designed to train users to properly and safely operate tools. The Leap also comes with a user-installed knife blade that can be added by a parent when the user is ready for more responsibility. Here at Leatherman, we celebrate the mentors who took the time to pass on a valuable skill or life lesson. Together, we’re helping adults pass on their tool skills and build a meaningful heritage with the next generation.

For ages 9 and up.

Leap™ Tools

  1. Needlenose Pliers

    A cast pinching tool with an angled nose for holding or manipulating materials, ideal for small objects or tight spaces.

  2. Regular Pliers

    A cast pinching tool for holding or manipulating materials.

  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. 420HC Knife

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

  6. 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.

  7. Spring-action Scissors

    Scissors for cutting paper or other light materials that automatically spring back to the open position when not being used. Sprung tools are helpful for reducing hand-fatigue, especially in scissors where the user may be opening and closing the tool many times to make multiple cuts in a row.

  8. Ruler

    A precise guide for determining length and other measurements.

  9. Tweezers

    A precisely designed personal care tool for removing or picking up very small and/or delicate items such as slivers or fish hooks.

  10. Bottle Opener

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

  11. Phillips Screwdriver

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

  12. Medium Screwdriver

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

  13. Small Screwdriver

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

Leap™ Features

  1. Lanyard Hole

    A hole designed in the body of the tool meant for attaching it 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. 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.

  3. Ergo Grip

    The shape of the tool allows the user to keep a safe, solid and comfortable grip on the tool while in use.

  4. User Installed Knife Blade

Comments about Leap:

Awesome took for kids! This is just the right tool to give to your kids before you take them on any adventure. I LOVED the fact that it comes with an actual blade, but that parents can decide when their kids are ready for the blade to be added to the tool. Otherwise, the same sturdy quality of other models of Leatherman tools shines through in this one.

I was really pleased with the fact that the tools weren't annoying to deploy. I've used other models of competing products and opening up a tool can be so difficult that you either a) lose a thumbnail or b) need a tool to do it! These move quite easily without being so loose that they fly open when you don't want them to.

The ergonomic shape is handy, and if you get the green one you'll notice it makes an alligator face. That's pretty cute! I haven't had any problems whatsoever, but if I had to find something to complain about I'd have to question whether or not the plastic could get cracked and create a sharp edge through normal wear and tear.

I'm a mom, and I keep it in my purse. It's small enough to not weigh down my bag and the shape of it means there are no protruding points to knick my hands if I reach in my purse. It has plenty of tools for just about any everyday situation, making it the perfect accessory.

Of course, this is also the perfect gift for a kid who's just getting ready to be an avid outdoors adventurer!

Absolutely ingenious

By MercyP

from Choccolocco, AL

Pros

  • Amazing Parent Controls
  • Easy To Extract Tools
  • Easy to open
  • High Quality

Cons

  • Is There A Case For It

Best Uses

  • Everything About This

Comments about Leap:

I was absolutely blown away by the fact that parents can add (or not) the included knife blade, meaning they can trust their younger children not to get hurt with the tools included, and they can always add the knife blade later. The instructions for adding the blade are right on the plastic safety cover, which was amazing.

Kids LOVE to feel like they have all the necessary gear for a wilderness adventure, but this one has the added benefit of looking whimsical and fun while still providing the durability and weight that Leatherman is known for. Sure, your kids might receive this in honor of their first camp out, but they'll use it over and over, for years to come.

        Bought this for my 6 year old nephew though I know 9+ years is recommended. Excellent way to start out a true, young American's life.
