40 YEARS IN THE MAKING
In 1983, Tim Leatherman started his journey to create the world’s first pliers-based multi-tool. Four decades later, we’re still pushing forward into the future to stay true to Tim’s spirit of perseverance, ingenuity, and innovation. But without you, our tools are just steel. In your hands, they save the day. So, cheers to you for making us who we are today.
From saving a life to saving the day, people have found multi-uses for their favorite multi-tool. Watch their stories here, and share yours with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or use #LeathermanToolTales on social media.

Since 1983, we’ve been making Leatherman tools in Portland, Oregon. Even though we sell them all over the globe, we stay local, using, testing, and designing them right here before sending them out to their forever home. Watch as we stamp, sharpen, and finish a multi-tool. The next best thing to being in our factory and seeing it live.
Watch as we design, build, and finalize a multi-tool from start to finish.
