The Kick folds down to a tight, easy-to-transport 4 inches.
The Leatherman Kick: You Can't Beat it For the Basics

Designed for folks who prefer a little less weight on the hip, the Leatherman Kick multitool features longer, sharper, stronger implements in a lightweight, compact tool. The full-size pliers include a newly designed jaw to handle twice the squeeze-load as the previous version with no extra weight added. A straight-knife, three extended screwdrivers and a bottle and can opener fold neatly and tightly inside the tool. Leatherman's rugged Zytel handle grips ensure a firm and comfortable hold. This multitool also contains a fixed lanyard ring and a leather sheath.

Key User Features

Efficiency is the name of Kick's game. Thoughtful engineering means that a tapped screw allows you to choose a pocket clip (sold separately) instead of a belt sheath. Kick has the same super-strong pliers as larger Leatherman tools, but its narrow shape and light weight keep you moving.

The Kick's interior features are supremely easy to access -- just swing open the handles and rotate the blades out using the convenient nail nicks. The scissors open the same way, with a swift rotation and a nail nick; and when the scissors are fully extended, they lock into place. All of the tools available in the Kick are made from 100-percent stainless steel, engineered to the optimum grade hardness for each individual tool. The Kick features a system of straight blades, which can be sharpened by using standard sharpening methods, for easy maintenance.


The Kick's thoughtful engineering means sharp, strong, long blades and twice the gripping power of the previous model.

Expand your Kick's capabilities with genuine Leatherman accessories like this removable bit driver or pocket clip (both sold separately)

Multitool Capabilities:


  • Needlenose pliers
  • Regular pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Hard-wire cutters
  • Clip-point knife
  • Large screwdriver
  • Small screwdriver
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Ruler (8 inch/19 cm)
  • Bottle/can opener
  • Wire stripper
  • Lanyard attachment

Optional Accessories (not included)

To expand your Kick's capacity, accessorize it with genuine Leatherman add-ons. The removable bit driver adds versatility to your Kick with 10 screw bit tips, and the Universal Tool Adapter is a standard 1/4-inch hex drive that locks in three positions.

Warranty

All Leatherman products are covered by a 25-year limited warranty. If within 25 years from the purchase date of your genuine Leatherman tool you find any defect in material or workmanship, you can count on the manufacturer to make it right with fast warranty service. To obtain warranty service, return your tool to Leatherman Tool Group. Depending on the tool defect, they will decide whether to repair your tool or replace it with a product of equal or greater value. No variations, upgrades or refunds are offered.

The Leatherman Tool Group and its History of Quality

In 1975, Leatherman Tool Group founder Tim Leatherman was inspired by leaky pipes and a cranky car on a budget trip to Europe -- and thus the idea for his first pocket survival tool was conceived. Since then, Leatherman has become an internationally recognized company with hundreds of employees and a wide variety of durable, versatile, stylish products. Created with bold designs and truly rugged construction, Leatherman products are a perfect addition for tool kits, emergency sets, and glove compartments everywhere.

From the Manufacturer

Designed for folks who prefer a little less weight on the hip, Leatherman's new Kick multi-tool features longer, sharper, and stronger implements in a lighter and more compact tool. And, if you need an option to belt storage, the Kick also has a tapped screw for attaching a pocket clip (sold separately). Full-size pliers feature a newly designed jaw that can handle twice the squeeze-load as the previous version with no extra weight added. The new Kick is narrower and lighter than ever before. A straight-knife, three extended screwdrivers (including Phillips) and a bottle/can opener fold neatly and tightly inside the tool. To ensure a firm and comfortable hold, Leatherman has stuck with the rugged Zytel handle grips. Your purchase includes a leather sheath, a fixed lanyard ring, and is covered by Leatherman's 25-year limited warranty.

I can tell this tool will be around for a while.

The knife fingernail notch sits below the handle edge, making it difficult to open.

I'm a fan of leatherman, and I was able to pick up a couple of these on a Christmas closeout for about a third of normal cost. Let me break it down:

The Good:

1) Solid Tools. Includes sturdy needlenose/plier combo with soft and hard wire cutter combo. Nice 3 inch blade. 2 sizes of standard screw driver bits and a phillips, all are tough. Wire-stripper, bottle opener, can opener combo, and a lanyard ring. Plust it has both metric and Imperial measurements on the handle.

2) Cheap

3) Decent quality leather sheath (though I prefer nylon)

The Bad:

1) Although otherwise of quality construction, the cheap plastic inserts in the handle are sharp (they have an edge) and even in the finger molds, they tend to dig. The plastic offers no grip quality improvement either.

2) The knife fingernail notch sits below the handle edge, making it difficult to open. In fact, all of the tools are tough to get open to some degree except for the Phillips driver.

3) Tool selection is minimalist. Would have been better served to opt for the screw driver bit system they use on the higher end models and substitute a scissors and maybe an awl or small saw instead, of course, it's an inexpensive tool, but I'm not sure how this would be any more expensive to build in this way.

4) Pretty heavy for what you get - doesn't weight much less than my New Wave.

The Ugly:

They look like a cheap Chinese knockoff. To some degree the handle digging into your palm reinforces this view. They are of rather plain design.

If you can pick it up for a decent price, it's a solid tool.

Every manufacturer nowadays has a "lite" version of whatever they sell, from the stripped model sub-compact car to lite beer, cheaper components and a few shortcuts is the fast and easy way to make the product available for a few less dollars. But if everyone followed Tim Leatherman's model, the world would be a better place.

At under $30, the Kick is the Leatherman "lite" model, but don't let the price fool you. Viewing the Kick through it's boxed blister pack, concerns about compromise fade quickly - the brush-polished stainless steel exterior looks very solid and precisely machined, as do the pliers. The oversized round bolts holding the whole tool together are the same as on the $75+ Core model, with only the contured black plastic bordering the grip seeming to soften things (it doesn't - the plastic is actually the "metal replacement" polymer Zytel, which is roughly as tough as gold). Visually, it's virtually identical to most any other Leatherman model, both in appearance and quality.

All of which is confirmed when you hold the Kick. The weight and feel is that of a small semi-automatic handgun; the cold and unyielding touch of one millimeter-thick stainless steel makes it clear that this is definitely an all-business tool. "Lite" doesn't refer to weight here, though 5.2 ounces doesn't sound like much, compared to other modern portable devices, this is a serious slug of metal. But unlike a cell phone or iPod, you could accidentally run the Kick through a cycle in the washing machine or even back over it with your car without fear.

The seriousness continues with the Kick's features, each of which are made from optimized-grade density stainless steel and are just as precisely engineered as the exterior.

i love this thing.

i originally bought one almost 5 years ago & still use it. i recently bought 2 more, one to keep in my emergency hurricane kit & one for my construction inspection bag.

i keep the original one in my bag (briefcase type bag for work) for those "just-in-case" moments, since i can't carry my 30 pound toolbox around with me to work. can't count how many times i've used it & in how many different ways.

the phiilips head is a real phillips, not a 2-dimensional stamped piece of steel like the swiss army knifes (SAK's), so you can get good grip on a screw & not strip the screw or chip the tool (see SAK). it doesn't replace my real tools, but like i said you never know when you'll need something, so it's great to have this around at all times. i even used the can opener to pop a lock when i was locked out of my office.

not sure why one of the reviews complained about its weight. i think the weight actually speaks to its durability & quality craftsmenship. now if you're looking for something to carry in your pocket, then i'd agree it's too heavy, but considering i throw it in my briefcase, backpack, glove-compartment, etc, it's perfect for me.

i have 3 SAK's (gifts thru the years) & all have at least 2 of the tools chipped or broken. the leatherman's tools also lock into place better than the SAK's, plus you get pliers & a wire cutter (even with the basic model).

good luck with your shopping.

This is one of the smaller Leatherman tools. It has a nice needlenose pliers part, and one nice sharp knife blade. There are also a few smaller tools(screwdrivers mostly) which I find difficult to get out using just my fingernails.
