Leatherman - Review
Everyone needs a Leatherman. It’s pretty much that simple. There are plenty of models to choose from, but when it all comes down to it, they’re all pretty similar; knife, screwdrivers, file, can opener, etc. We prefer The Blast, but that’s just what we’re used to. We know other people who are equally passionate about other models. If there’s something specific you want, like a diamond file, just find the Leatherman that suits your needs. But find one nonetheless. You’ll thank us for it.
It’s one of those things that, once you have it in your pocket for a while, you start to wonder how you ever got along without one. How many times have you been up on a ladder wiring a light and you realize that you’re looking at a flathead screw and in your hand is a Phillip’s head screwdriver? With a Leatherman in your pocket, there’s no more standing up there wishing you could levitate the correct tool into your hand like this guy. Crawlspaces, roofs, and under vehicles are other places where our Leatherman has saved painful, awkward, and time consuming trips back to the toolbox.
Now, we’re so dependent that we feel naked without it in our pockets. It’s essential. Also, if you’re worried about the size, there are little ‘squirt’ models as well, half the size for about half the price.
