Marine War Vet/Elevator Constructor
I served in the United States Marine Corps for a four year enlistment as a 0311 infantryman. I joined in January '01 just before 9/11 happened. Away I went, being deployed three times, doing two of the deployments in Iraq. The first tour was for the initial invasion of Iraq and the second tour was the clearing of Falluja (receiving a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star during combat missions in Falluja). During those years as a Marine and being involved in an actual war I always carried a Leatherman. I cannot count the times the tool came in use not just for personal use but in times of urgency.
The Leatherman tools I owned were the Leatherman Crunch and the Leatherman Fuse which I still own and use today for my job as an Elevator Constructor. I feel blessed to be alive and I owe some level of comfort to the Leatherman tools that helped me during those times and now in the present.
It clamps up to a 1-inch diameter pipe with its vise grips, and if you remove the adjusting screw, you'll find a hex-bit adapter built right in.
