Leatherman Multitools are among the best tools on the planet. Tim Leatherman, while on a trip to Europe, found that Swiss Army Knives didn't do everything he needed them to do. In 1983 he designed and manufactured the first multi-purpose tool. Ever since, Leatherman Multi-Tools have been evolving and today they offer a wide variety of models including models with screwdrivers, scissors, strap cutters, mine probes, bit drivers, can openers and more. More recently, Leatherman Tools also added flashlights and folding knives to their product line.
