I go with a group of guys every year on a canoe trip, nothing special just a good time on the river fishing enjoying the river, sun and having a few good laughs. We got to our campsite and everything was going fine until we had a problem with the chainsaw (yes, chainsaw; after all, we are a bunch of city boys). Someone forgot to pack the tool for the chainsaw, so I grabbed my Leatherman (Wave) thinking that I was the only one to have one, and the only thing to help fix the chainsaw. While we were trying to get the sparkplug out--the Leatherman broke (the needle nose portion). The two of us working on it looked at each other and said at the same time "plan B". To my surprise 3 of the other guys on the trip walked up and said you can use my Leatherman. In short, we got the spark plug out and there was a little too much gas in the plug and it started after we cleaned everything up, no "plan B". We got the wood cut, fire started, food in our bellies and the stories started to fly along with the laughs.
I carry my Leatherman everywhere I go. I have three of them - one in my fishing gear, one in my hunting gear, and the third is always connected to my hip.
As for the broken Leatherman, it was replaced with no questions asked at the store (Cabela’s).
Our most popular model, with outside-accessible blades, bit driver, scissors, and wire cutters, all in a 100% stainless steel body.
