To us, FREE® isn’t just a name. It’s a philosophy. Freedom from constraint, from conventional thinking, and the freedom for anyone (and everyone) to be the type of person who saves the day every day in a million different ways. We wanted to redefine what s means and create a completely new design. One that is easy to use with one hand (even with gloves)—no more broken fingernails. One that has epic haptics (that means it clicks into place with a sound you can hear). One that uses one type of lock for the whole tool (which makes it so much simpler). And one that is not only one of our most durable, but quite possibly the smoothest operating tool we’ve ever made.
The FREE® Series isn’t just a new way to make multi-tools. It’s a total game changer. It didn’t really reinvent what a multi-tool is or why you’d use one. The FREE® makes it easier to tackle the problems you’ve always been tackling with your Leatherman.

FREE® Series Innovation Highlights:
1. Extraordinary Durability
Based on years of consumer feedback and manufacturing experience, the Leatherman FREE® is a completely redesigned platform. Gone are the days of “breaking in” your multi-tool: our FREE® Series is ready to go from day one yet durable enough to last for many years. In fact, the improvements we made to the FREE® Series make them some of the most durable tools we’ve ever made.
2. One-handed Operation
Every implement in each FREE® Series multi-tool can be accessed with just one hand (no fingernails required). They can be opened with a simple roll of your thumb or push of your finger (even with gloves on!). Even the pliers can be deployed with an easy butterfly-like motion. While some of our other multi-tools offer outside-accessible and one-hand accessible tools, the FREE® Series offers it for every implement on every tool.
3. Frictionless Feel
The smoothness and ease-of-use of the FREE® Series is powered by a not-so-secret ingredient—magnets. This revolutionary magnetic architecture reduces friction when opening and closing tools and greatly reduced wear and tear on part. It also allows us to create stronger locks—which clicks into place, letting you know it’s safe and ready to use. Plus, because magnets have a nearly infinite life cycle, the durability (see above) is greatly increased.
