Seeing (Again) Is Believing
I have been a Leatherman owner for about 15 years now, ever since I got into the underground utilities trade. Always believing that bigger is better, I placed my original Leatherman in my tackle box and bought the "Super Tool". That's one tool that lived up to its name. I've fixed water main tapping tools, re-attached back-hoe accessories, repaired chain link fence, and anything else I came across with it.
With the introduction of the Surge, I placed my Super Tool in my glove box and began brandishing my newest beast at work. Some of the crews thought I was crazy for always upgrading..."one multi-tool is the same as the next..." they would say. This all changed one afternoon when one of our senior electrical linemen was looking over a print and the screw fell out of his eyeglasses. Despite the attempts of the brand X multi-tool owners, his situation could not be improved. Almost as a joke I was asked if the behemoth tool I carried could be of any help. Quick as a whip I revealed the micro screwdriver hidden in the handle. The glasses were repaired...the print was read...the job was finished! What many once thought of as an albatross on my belt is now considered the gentle giant that saved the day!
Thanks Tim, your tools have earned a sacred place in my arsenal of repair supplies.
