GOOD TO KNOW

Might be a bit too heavy for some people to carry in their pocket every day. Only available in stainless steel and black.


WHO IT'S FOR

Anyone who wants a full-sized multi-tool that does it all. For some, the Wave Plus will be the perfect-sized EDC. For others, it might be better in a backpack or everyday carry kit.


WHY WE PICKED IT

The Wave Plus is our all-time, international bestseller. It was designed by our CEO Ben Rivera and is one of the most beloved multi-tools in Leatherman history. If you’re looking for one multi-tool to do it all, you need not look any further than the Wave Plus.

This fan favorite traces its lineage to our original Leatherman® PST from the ‘90s. It has been updated based on years of design by our top engineers and feedback from our customers. Whether you want it as your go-to tool for every day, or just want an all-around multi-tool for (almost) anything, the Wave Plus is a favorite for a reason. Home, work, or hobby, the Wave Plus has the 18 tools to make you a multi-task master.

#3

Skeletool® CX

The Minimalist EDC
|

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Sleek, minimalist utility
  • 154CM stainless steel straight blade
  • Includes only essential tools like pliers and bit driver
  • Removable, low-profile pocket clip

GOOD TO KNOW:

The minimalist design means the Skeletool CX is missing functions found in larger multi-tools, like files and saws.


WHO IT’S FOR:

Anyone looking for a lightweight, low volume everyday carry, pocket knife or multi-tool with essential capability.


WHY WE PICKED IT:

Skeletool CX packs the most essential tools into a sleek, smart package. We chose the CX over other Skeletools because of the premium 154CM stainless steel straight-edge blade. This upgraded steel has a great balance of corrosion resistance and toughness. This makes the Skeletool CX a great pick for an everyday carry knife. But, of course, it’s more than just a knife. The pliers, bit driver, and wire cutters will come in handy more often than you expect.

Modern enough to pair well with your business casual attire, this multitool won’t take up a bunch of space or look bulky in your pocket. To put it simply, the Skeletool CX has everything you need and nothing you don’t.

#4

Free® T4

The Pocket Problem Solver
|

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Compact and lightweight
  • FREE technology for one-handed opening of all tools
  • Available in five color variations

GOOD TO KNOW:

The FREE T4 is one of the few Leatherman tools without pliers.


WHO IT'S FOR:

For those looking to step up from a basic pocketknife and don’t need pliers or full-size features.


WHY WE PICKED IT:

Designed with everyday carry in mind, the FREE T4 features a signature design and epic haptics—all tools lock into place with a confident, reassuring click. Of course, everything is one-hand operable (with the exception of the removable tweezers). The FREE T4 is made from a durable combination of 420 stainless steel and glass-filled nylon. Ideal for EDC, the FREE T4 is a high-functioning tool in a convenient, packable size.
