The Leatherman Surge is one of our two largest multi-tools; a real powerhouse, built with our largest pliers, longest multi-tool blades and easy-to-use locks. A unique blade exchanger, replaceable 154CM wire cutters and four outside-opening blades give you quick access to the tools you use most. The Surge was built for tough jobs and the hands that do them.

Surge® 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. 154CM Replaceable Wire Cutters

    Replaceable bypassing cutting blades crafted from 154CM, meant for cutting regular and light-gauge wire. 154CM will keep its edge three times as long as traditional stainless steel for less down-time in the field.

  4. 154CM Replaceable Hard-wire Cutters

    Replaceable bypassing cutting blades crafted from 154CM, meant for cutting hard wire. 154CM will keep its edge three times as long as traditional stainless steel for less down-time in the field.

  5. Stranded-wire Cutters

    Concave cutters located under plier jaws for use on Stranded wire - smaller gauge wire bundled or wrapped together to form a larger conductor. The concave shape helps to keep the shape of the strands without crushing them.

  6. Electrical Crimper

    Found in the jaw of the tool and used for general purpose crimping of electrical connectors.

  7. Wire Stripper

    A useful notch for safely stripping multiple types of wire.

  8. 420HC Knife

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Awl w/ Thread Loop

    An awl is a tool that can be used to create or enlarge holes by puncturing materials such as leather or canvas. They can also be used to start stair steps for hunting stands. The thread loop can be used for sewing materials together when necessary.

  13. Ruler (8 in | 19 cm)

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

  14. 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.

  15. Bottle Opener

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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Blade Exchanger®

    This feature allows the user to swap out Leatherman and universal t-shank tools of the same length for specific jobs, extending the functionality of the multi-tool. The Blade Exchanger® locks the tool into place for safety during use.

  19. 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.

  20. Large Screwdriver

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

  21. Small Screwdriver

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

Surge® 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 Surge:

I am terribly disappointed to receive a Surge this afternoon and then struggle with a poorly designed "Deluxe Leather Case" that does not provide a secure means to store a Bit Kit and Bit Extension without worrying about the loss off one of the bit holders and the Bit Extension.

I cleaned the packing grease off using WD40 and began to try and get the thing into the "Deluxe Leather Sheath" and it was a struggle to just get the flap to snap.

Later I pulled it out of the sheath and something fell into my lap. The lever to unlock / release the tools on the side of the "Large Bit Driver" and the "Can / Bottle Opener" fell off the Surge! It appears that this lever has two pivot points / rods about mid way that stick into a hole on each side of the handle. One of the pivot points/rods broke off and the lever fell off.

This is not what I had grown to expect from Leatherman quality. I owned a Wave for years and it never failed. It disappeared in my move overseas. So while back in the states I wanted to replace it.

I purchased it on September 7th and received it today the 10th. I did not even have the opportunity to use it for what it is designed to do. The product is defective!

I had excellent service from the Wave. The fit and finish of the Surge I received was nothing close to the fit and finish of the Wave that I had. I cannot recommend this to anyone until it is proven that Leatherman can deliver a quality Surge without defect to me. I have to absorb the original shipping costs and now pay additional shipping to return it for a replacement not to mention the time involved packing, addressing and shipping the return. Irritation and aggravation from a company that prides itself on Quality and Innovation.

This Surge failed hands down.

Comments about Surge:

this tool is really nice, however you need to replace the useless flat screwdrivers with a micro bit adapter and another tool as they are almost useless since the tool has the bit driver add on, swapping the serrated blade with a gut hook on it from the charge to this unit would also add more as well, honestly all leathermans should have that knife on them.
if you can't fit the micro adapter in there try making a micro bit adapter for the large bit driver as an option, having that option has helped greatly when i used to own a wave.

    Comments about Surge:

    This is my EDC knife and tool. Sure it's heavier than most but it's a solid piece of kit that can do more than 10 what other tools can do.

    I would love to see changable tools, like swapping out the small flat screwdriver for one that would recieve the C4 punch or disassembly punch.
