Never Knew What I Was Missing!
I bought my first ever Leatherman Blast back in 2006. I had one other multi-tool before, but it was huge and had only a few tools. I had heard that Leatherman was like the best of the best when it came to multi-tools. So I finally decided to purchase the Blast after much deliberation over which one to get.
I have to say I can't imagine going a day without it. It is always on my side, whether I am working or wearing a suit to a formal event. There have been so many times where I needed a tool and my Blast has been right there ready to serve. It never ceases to surprise me on how strong the tools are. I remember one time trying to loosen some screws that I'm sure would have broken most other screwdrivers, but not so with my Leatherman.
It was with me when I traveled to Tahiti, New Zealand, and Australia. When I was in New Zealand, I forgot that I had it on me when I went through the security check point. Fortunately they did not confiscate it from me.
I have thought about buying another Leatherman, but at this point my Blast is so rock solid that I can't come up with an excuse to buy another one.
Thanks for making a great multi tool!
P.S. - If I do come up with a reason to buy another multi tool it will for sure be another LEATHERMAN!
Longer blades mean easier slicing, sawing, filing and more, while Zytel® handle inserts provide a comfortable, reliable grip.
