No, it is currently not possible to carry a Leatherman tool in hand luggage. However, you can take it with you in the checked luggage. Ultimately, however, in any case, it is up to the employees of the respective airline what you can or cannot take on board. It is best to find out which items can be carried in hand baggage and checked baggage on the airline's website before you travel. The international regulations can vary. We would also like to point out that the Leatherman Tool Group does not accept any liability for tools that have been lost, stolen or confiscated.
Tim Leatherman's standards for quality, durability, precision and attention to detail are what make Leatherman tools like no other. Ever since Tim invented the category, we've focused on just one thing — manufacturing the world's highest quality multipurpose tools.

Our products are sold in approximately 90 countries around the world. Please refer to the Dealer Locator page to locate our authorized distributors. These distributors can help you find retailers in your area and/or help you with a warranty issue.
Each Leatherman tool consists of a combination of features that makes it a unique multipurpose tool. We cannot alter or substitute different blade components from one tool version to another.

Use a separate screwdriver or similar device to unlock the blades. With the handles closed together, insert the screwdriver into the slot created by the handle spring (where the handle locks onto the tool blades). Gently pry up the handle spring until one of the blades can be released.
Black oxide is a "conversion coating", which means it changes the surface of the product, rather than covering the product, as paint would. Black oxide is formed by oxidizing the outer layer of atoms on the surface. In effect, it's controlled rust. When you first use the product, the black substance is this outer layer. It will wear away to some extent, but that's the nature of this finish. To avoid the stains, simply take a rag with CRC 3-36 (or similar oil) and rub the tool surfaces thoroughly. The oil will set the finish and allow it to last longer. This is what your skin oils are actually doing when you handle the tool.
Our warranty is simple. You broke it, we'll fix it. Please visit our Warranty page and follow the instructions to send in your product (NO SHEATH PLEASE).
If you live outside of Germany or Austria, please follow the international warranty instructions also located on the Warranty page. There you will select your country and send your product to an authorized Leatherman distributor.
Our products are designed to be disassembled by factory-trained technicians only. Repaired tools are reassembled (and the pivot posts cemented) to ensure proper tension for optimum tool performance. Attempting to disassemble a Leatherman tool yourself may result in lost components and compromised tool functionality. It may also void your warranty protection.
