Patent Pending and Still Working
I have what I believe is the 1983 pocket tool with patent pending. It has been with me ever since. It has been all over the world. But mostly importantly, in last ten years, it has served me so well, everyday, as a multi-day river guide. I worked in the Grand Canyon, as well as some other wonderful rivers. In our line of work, we are nothing short of brutal on equipment. The Leatherman has been there every step of the way. In the last ten years I have average well over 150 nights a year on the river. I have fixed everything from broken frames and transoms, to oars and motors, to tents and stoves. My somewhat younger cohorts often asked where did I get the cool leather case for it? I tell them its old school. I finally broke at tip on one of the screwdrivers. Anyway to fix it?
The tool that spawned it all. Our original Pocket Survival Tool® would set records for years to come.
