Built to Last a Lifetime
I own a Leatherman, which I bought back in 1983. At this time, in England, there wasn't many, if any, of these tools like this around. It was imported directly from the USA. I chose it because it was high quality and had a lifetime (25 year) guarantee.
At the time I worked for a big UK Communications company and during this time I found it invaluable. It was versatile and always up to the task at hand. It never, ever has let me down. I lost it many times, but luck seemed always to be on my side and I always managed to find it again. I took it everywhere with me, even on my vacations to Europe and the USA. I was never once stopped in an airport when I went through the metal detectors.
The tool that spawned it all. Our original Pocket Survival Tool® would set records for years to come.
