Our 7 Favorite Things About Leatherman Rebar

1. Iconic box-like shape

As inspired by Tim Leatherman’s original PST design, the Rebar has tools that are accessible from the inside when it’s open. This creates a smooth profile for comfortable grip with no hot spots or pinch points. It’s easy to take with you everywhere, with a foldable, compact shape that’s only four inches when closed.

2. replaceable wire cutters

Plan to use your wire cutters every day? That’s no big deal for the Rebar. Make from premium steel, these replaceable wire cutters are a first for a four-inch tool from Leatherman.

3. all-locking tools

Every feature (except the plier head) locks into place, so you can use the tools safely and effectively.

4. work-ready design

The nail nicks and handles are designed for easy access to the knife blades and tools, even while wearing thick work gloves.

5. rugged pliers

Rebar was designed for fixers and doers so we made sure the pliers could hold up to any challenge. They’ve been optimized for strength and have a thin profile to make it easier for you to work in narrow, tight spots.

6. three drivers

Perfect for DIY projects or on-the-spot repairs, you have three sizes of drivers to choose from, so you know you’ll always have the one you need nearby when you need it.

7. two blades

Slice through (almost) anything with the versatility both straight-edge and serrated blades. Rebar also has a dedicated saw for extra tough material.

5 star reviews

“I am a janitor. There is not a working day that I do not use my Leatherman.”—Michael T.

“The customized Rebar I ordered for my son was done quickly and with the quality we are used to from the Leatherman brand. As a Leatherman user for over 30 years, this is the expectation and it was met 100%. The tool access is wonderful and is the right blend of number of tools and compact fit when folded and sheathed. This is the 8th Leatherman tool in my home and certainly not the last.” —Bruce H. 

“Got this for my husband for his birthday, plus the driver attachments. He absolutely loves it. On him 24/7 and he always finds a way to fix something with it every day. He wanted a Leatherman because they’re known to be quality multi-tools, and it’s true. He loves it more than his old Gerber, a good upgrade and I’m glad he’s happy.”—Rebekah D.

“The Rebar has become one of my favorite tools. I carried my original Wave for 20 years, and had already added a Surge for heavy use. I’ve found the Rebar to be an awesome addition and perfect for everyday use. The size and toolset is very efficient, everything I normally need and nothing I don’t, and the quality, fit and finish is excellent.” —Chris L.
