The Leatherman Wave multi-tool is hands down our most popular model, made famous by its outside-accessible blades that can be deployed with just one hand. When we redesigned it in 2004, we gave the new Wave larger knives, stronger pliers, longer wire cutters, and all-locking blades. Perfect for any job, adventure, or everyday task, the Wave multi-tool is an international best-seller.

Wave® 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. Wire Stripper

    A useful notch for safely stripping multiple types of wire.

  6. 420HC Knife

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Ruler (8 in | 19 cm)

    A precise measuring guide for determining length in inches or centimeters, up to 8 inches or 19 centimeters.

  11. 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.

  12. Bottle Opener

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

  13. 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.

  14. Diamond-coated File

    A stainless steel blank coated with premium synthetic diamond particles which create a rough surface that can be used to sharpen hard steel blades with much more precision than wood/metal files.

  15. Large Bit Driver

    This driver slot holds any of the full-size Leatherman tool bits in place and allows the user to exchange bits for different jobs. Not intended for the eyeglass screwdriver tip.

  16. Small Bit Driver

    This small driver slot holds the Leatherman mini tool bit in place and allows the user to use either end of the bit for different jobs. It is not intended for use with full-size screwdriver bits.

  17. Medium Screwdriver

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

Wave® 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. 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. 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 Wave:

    I have a 6,500 tap sugar bush, four tractors, a commercial dog kennel and a sailboat. I am always fixing something. Most days I use my wave st least a couple of times. My Wave is without doubt the handiest tool I have on my farm. I feel naked without it on my belt.

      Comments about Wave:

      Let me start out by saying that this is a wonderful product, which I carry everywhere I go. I will say, my only complaint is that when you are gripping something tightly with the pliers, and they slip, the outside of the knife blades pinch together and will break the skin. This is something that has to be taken into consideration when buying this product. As far as functionality and size, the Wave can't be beat. The pliers really put a damper on things when they pinch. This was an especially worrisome issue camping. The pliers slipped, the handle pinched and cut my hand. In the mountains of Colorado, even the slightest cut can be dangerous.

        this is my All time favorite tool. Strong, well thought out, great warantee/service in an American company. The only thing I can find fault in is the tiny eye glass screwdriver. But if it breaks send it back and you will have a new one in DAYS!

        I can't imagine living without one, I carry it everywhere every day.

                Comments about Wave:

                I've been using this tool for a while now, several months. I am so not impressed by this tool. It's now sitting on my shelf collecting dust. Went back to using my 11 years old Wave. My biggest gripe is the small bits are a serious pain to open. I've oiled this tool a dozen times in the first 2 months. I did make a comment on the Leatherman Facebook page and was told all I have to do is use the tool and it will break in and become smooth. Well that aint happening. The final straw came yesterday. I was MacGyveing something and was sawing through a plastic toothbrush holder. My new Wave was having problems. I finished the job with the old one. I've abused the saw on the old Wave by sawing through a sheet of fiberglass and it still works better then the brand new one. Sad. The new Wave might have slight advantage with the screwdriver attachment but probably not as I have a screwdriver kit in a clamshell belt case. You guys probably know the one. The new case is total junk. The main problem is I bought the tool encased in plastic. Last time I ever do that. Will I ever buy another Leatherman? Hard to say as I expect my first Wave to last another 11 years. I do have a PS4 and it is an awesome tool. Maybe my new Wave was assembled by someone inexperienced.

                  Comments about Wave:

                  I don't normally write reviews, but I feel an obligation to this product. I'm on my fifth Leatherman Wave. I've lost 3 of them over the last 10 years. Can't find a better tool, I keep going back to the Wave. Once you have a tool with one handed opening, and the great locking mechanisms that this tool has, you can't go back to any other system. I tried a few of the other Leatherman Multi-Tools out in the store, but I don't care the the extra weight/bulk of the bigger knives, and the smaller ones lack features that I've grown accustomed to.

                  I now have one that I carry with me almost everyday, and another that stays in the truck. I can't imagine the amount of time and money that this tool has saved me over the years, allowing me to make quick repairs, without having to go find the proper tools. It has all the tools you need, without the bulk of the tools you don't. The only other tool I wish it had was a Awl, but thats not a big deal, and I don't think I would trade any of the tools on this knife for it.

                  Thanks Leatherman. Please don't ever stop making this tool.

                      Comments about Wave:

                      Great tool, one of may favorite "normal-sized" multitool. I always take it for longer trips.
                      Good one-hand operable blades, powerful pliers, good and quite comfortable handle.
                      Excellent bit driver, that makes the tool really universal (this is my favorite feature).
                      Overall great performance and quality.

                      It has only one bigger flaw:
                      The pliers design is not the best, the circle pipe grip is too close to the wire cutter, so if bigger screws can be easily damaged, because the wire cutter can cut into them...
                      (And the mini scissor is only just tolerably works...)

                      A box/package opener and replaceable wire cutters can be great additions for the next generation.

                        Worked in a factory where the maintenance crew was less than satisfactory so many machines would break down and need minor fixes on a regular basis. With this tool on my belt every day I was happy that I could help keep things running. If I forgot this tool on any given day I felt useless! I love it love it love it! Don't loan it out!!!!! Mine got returned with parts missing. But the good news is, this site made it very easy to order replacement parts fairly cheap! YAY! If anything happens to this tool I will get another one immediately! It's especially handy around the house!

                          I have purchased 4 more of these and they are a great tool. This particular one was a little too stiff so I didn't give it 5 stars.

                            Bought this as a gift for my dad, an avid outdoorsman, and he just loves it. The tool has all the features that he needs for hunting, fishing, camping, and on-the-road maintenance. The Wave is also an amazing quality tool that I know will hold up under repeated and heavy use. My only complaint is that the "engraving" is actually just typed onto the tool, not etched. I don't think the message will hold up over time, which is disappointing for a gift.

                              Great tool! I just hope that the people from Leatherman read this. Why are you selling "Nylon pouches" with a LEATHERMAN tool? That makes NO sense. It's a LEATHERMAN!! I know that we can purchase a leather sheath for it, but we shouldn't have too. Just saying. Each tool should come with a custom fit LEATHER sheath.

                                  Great tool for all household uses. Knives are very sharp. Only downfall is the case is a little large n tool is hard to retrieve from case.

                                    Well thought out design. I have carried a knife most of my life. I am a pilot, weapons instructor, scuba dive master, law enforcement instructor and... This tool is one I have looked at for years, but never picked one up. My supervisor has one and I saw the light when he was using for so many tasks.
                                    Glad I made the purchase.

                                      It is a very fine, well-made tool, but I did not realize how big and heavy it is. YES it is accurately described (length and weight) by Leatherman; I just did not realize how big that is. I cannot carry this tool comfortably in my pocket, but they give you a nice carrying pouch for your belt. I keep it in the glove box of the car, and that is a good place for occasional use. Unless you know how large and heavy this tool is, I would not recommend it as a pocket tool. I have a Micra, and that is a good pocket tool.

                                        Use it to pull out old air hose gaskets stainless steel is nice no rusting would be nice if it floated floated or had neon colors.

                                          Work and play. I've had my wave for at least 15 years. A "swiss army " knife with pliers. I do plumbing, irrigation and maintenance for a living,and ATV's/ anything outdoors for fun. This tool has saved me miles of walking back to the work truck for " the tool I forgot to grab". And saved my butt in the out back. I wish the pliers were a little bigger. I've pinched my fingers many times trying to bust a nut, but I guess the compact size when it's folded makes up for it. It was a lot cheaper when I bought it years ago, and almost lost it due to the poorly constructed leather sheath that it came with. My experience with sheaths leads me to conclude that the nylon will have a longer life.

                                          Unfortunately I lost the Leatherman that I've used for the last 15 years. However, that caused me to replace it. And, this new Leatherman Wave is even better!

                                              I love the versatility, it carries all the basic tools I need and doesn't slip from my hand. Unlike others, thanks to the grooves along the sides of the scales which also serves as a ruler. Knives are big enough for when you really need a knife to do the job. Combined with the bit extender, bit kit and molle sheath, its perfect for everyday carry without much bulk..

                                                  After losing my Core which was one of my favorites leathermans of all time, I found a wave to replaced it. Yes it is smaller but still a great EDC multi tool. I like the knives, file and saw on the outside which can be used while it is closed. Another positive is having lock feature on all tools. This comes in handy for heavy usage of the tool. Again Leatherman shows why it is the leader in multi tool tools. It is a little light, but I was used to a Core a bigger and heavy duty tool.

                                                  This is my 3rd Wave, 2nd one is being serviced under warranty, and my 10 year old son declared one for his own. :) I honestly use it every day, from helping me untie knots in shoelaces to tightening clamps on classic motorcycles and ever other toy in between. For me, its like putting on underwear, I never leave home without it.

                                                    What else can I say besides a great tool and a great AMERICAN company who truly stands behind their warranty. Used my Wave for a maintenance job all day everyday for 3 yrs and eventually broke off the knife tip, med screwdriver, wore down the wire cutters, etc... long story short they sent me a NEW Wave just a few days after sending in the old one to claim the warranty. Thanks Leatherman.
