I like Leatherman because the blades are on the outside. I like Gerber too though because of being able to open the pliers one-handed.You only need one of those, the Surge. The best Leatherman ever made.
I've worn out three of them (Leatherman replaced them for free ). I like it so much I have a primary and a back up. It's pretty much on my hip every day, and gets used every day. I can fix darn near anything with that tool.
I haven't myself. I've heard their customer service is outstanding though. I bet they'd replace it no charge.This thread reminds me that my Wave has a broken jaw on the pliers....
Has anybody here ever sent a Leatherman back for repair? I figure that even if they charge me instead of doing it as a warranty repair, it will still be cheaper than a new Wave....
When I laid them out on the kitchen island for this picture, my wife thought I was nuts for having so many.You have too many... i don't have enough. I sense a Bernie Sanders thing coming on
Thanks, saw that as well in my Internet searching... I need to send them an email. It'ss a geat tool, and it only broke because I was too lazy to walk to the truck for the right tool and used the pliers jaws as a pry tool; NOT the tool's fault, that one is on me for sure.I haven't myself. I've heard their customer service is outstanding though. I bet they'd replace it no charge.
I found this on their site. Maybe it will be of some help:
Exactly! It's like having Glocks: 1 for the range/matches, one for EDC, one for the nightstand, one for the spouse, etc, etc. Never heard of "too many.":dancing:When I laid them out on the kitchen island for this picture, my wife thought I was nuts for having so many.
In truth though, other than in this pic, they are all in their dedicated spots:
* motorcycle side bag
* car glove box
* shooting range bag
* "junk" drawer in the kitchen
* briefcase for work
