A pocketknife with scissors, pry bar and more 

If you’re looking for an everyday carry knife with extra capability, the Leatherman FREE T4 might be the tool for you. This multi-tool can do more than just cut. The FREE T4 has 12 different tools in one compact, lightweight design. 

Because it’s more than just a pocketknife, you won’t have to risk breaking off the tip of your blade opening or tightening something. Instead you will have a pry bar or screwdriver that’ll do the job much better. Whether you need to open a package, fix a loose screw, or trim your nails, the Leatherman FREE T4 has you covered.

The nitty gritty on the Leatherman FREE T4

The Leatherman FREE T4 is a knife based multi-tool designed for everyday problem solving. It was built on the FREE Technology platform, which features magnetic locking and one-hand accessible tools. This means that you can easily open and close every tool with a simple push of your thumb, and they will stay securely in place when not in use. No fingernails needed.

And the FREE T4 is safe to use because each tool looks firmly in place with a satisfying click. The rounded contours and textured scales give you a comfortable secure grip on the tool. Always have it nearby with a sturdy pocket clip.

The Leatherman FREE T4 comes in several colorways to match your style. Green and blue pocketknives are among the most popular choices for everyday carry. Choose from Stainless, Artic, Navy, Evergreen or Lunar.

  • Package Opener: Use to open plastic or cardboard packages without damaging anything inside. It has a hooked edge that can cut through tape, glue, or plastic wrap.

  • Bottle Opener: Open bottles or cans with metal caps. It can also be used as a lever or a pry bar.

  • You can use the pry tool to open battery compartments, remove SIM cards, or measure small distances.

How does the Leatherman FREE T4 compare to the Leatherman FREE T2?

The Leatherman FREE T4 is a more capable versatile version of the Leatherman FREE T2. The FREE T4 has several tools that the FREE T2 does not have, such as the spring-action scissors, the wood/metal file, and the tweezers. The FREE T4 is slightly heavier and larger than the FREE T2, but both tools are very portable and easy to carry. Both products have the same magnetic locking and one-hand accessible features, and both come with a 25-year warranty and are made in the USA.

The FREE T4 is a better choice for you if you want more tools and functions in your pocketknife, and if you don’t mind paying a bit more for the extra features. The FREE T2 is a better choice for you if you want a simpler and more affordable pocketknife, and if you don’t need the extra tools that the FREE T4 offers.
