10 Years As My Best Tool
My wife bought me my Leatherman Black Oxide Super Tool 200 for Christmas in late 2000. I am a U.S. Navy Corpsman stationed with the 1st Marine Div. as their primary Medic, and on my first trip aboard to the Philippines for jungle warfare training I took my Super Tool...It played a huge roll in keep my guns in tune, cutting rope, bandages and such. I never left it behind.
My last trip to Bagdad I was sure to take my good friend, the 200. I packed that tool everywhere I went knowing I had a reliable tough tool to depend on helped me get through each day. I could completely disassemble my Remington 870 12 ga. shot gun and reassemble it with just that tool. Knowing I had the tools to keep my equipment in perfect working order kept me alive and my marines safe. I'll be looking to get a Super Tool 300 for my next outing.
