First, I love it. I won't review the actual tool as it's great and I have nothing to add. I've owned/used countless leathermans over the years and I love the tools.


as another person has mentioned, the finish on this tool is less than ideal. It comes off on your hands and anything you touch for the first week or two of use. In addition, it's easily scratched during this time. No, Neither effect the function, but it's also not what I expect from leatherman. Concerned that the one I received didn't have a chance to finish curing, I emailed Leatherman (see below). I'm not sure why they can't cure the finish before sending it out or use a different type of black finish (i.e. gun blueing).

It's still on my belt and I love it, but come on leatherman, fix it.


Thank you for your email and your interest in Leatherman Tools.

The black coating is applied on the exterior of the tool. It does come off on your hands especially at the beginning. The oils from your hand do help to set the black so the more you handle the tool, the more the color is set.

The black is on the surface only, so scratches will show. The black tools were developed with the goal of keeping reflection off the surface with military applications in mind where scratches are perhaps less important.

I hope this helps.
Best regards,

I bought this along with the bit driver extension and 40-bit assortment to keep in my vehicle. I've had them less than two months and have already been grateful to have the tool handy in the center console on a few occasions. The included tools combined with the bits meet a lot of common tool needs. I also had bit kit from OSH I now carry in the vehicle, because they work nicely with the multi-tool, as well.

I have had trouble with other multi-tools in the past, either for not having the necessary tools or being awkward to use. I have no trouble with this one, and it's comfortable to handle. It's a very reasonable weight, too, not as heavy as some I've had in the past, despite having a great selection of blades. The blades are easily accessed, and the saw is very handy.

I wanted the nylon sheath rather than the leather, but found two model numbers (with different prices) that seemed to describe identical products, both with the nylon sheath. A little research revealed the following:

830037 - Leather sheath - Box
830038 - Nylon sheath - Box
830039 - Leather sheath - Clam pack
830040 - Nylon sheath - Clam pack.

I opted for the 830038, nylon/boxed version, mainly because it was (at least when I purchased) less expensive than the clam pack. I hope this helps anyone else wondering about the various model numbers.

This is essentially the perfect multi-tool. The functions included here will cover all of your bases without crowding your available space, which seems to be all-too common among multi-tools. The craftsmanship is outstanding; it looks and feels as durable as it gets. And now finally a matte black finish turns a clumsy looking gadget into a beautiful machine.

However, herein lies its particularly annoying flaw. Right out of the box, the finishing coat on this tool left black smudges and marks all over my hands, especially where lubricant was applied. Now, overlooking the sissy/feminine jokes sure to come, that's just not okay with me, especially if those smudges transfer to whatever I'm working on. Luckily, within half an hour or so of thoroughly cleaning it with moist cotton swabs, the black finally stopped getting on my hands. To keep the joints turning fluidly, I reapplied some WD-40 from their pen dispenser.

After all of that, I couldn't ask for a better product, but I wouldn't want others to run into this same issue without due warning.

Color Name: W/Leather SheatSize Name: pocket size
Leatherman claims this is their best selling multitool. Most reviews on Amazon and online forums are super positive. Does the Wave live up to the hype? Yes, to some extent, but it has some issues, mainly cost and weight.

The good:

This is a nice full-featured multitool. You get one plain-edge and one serrated knife, both can be opened with one hand without opening the whole tool. Useful set of scredrivers: large and medium plain, medium philips, micro plain and philips for eyeglasses. Wood saw, and nice metal file + saw. Can opener and kinda-OK scissors. All in all, good set of tools, and all lock securely in place. Of course, it also has full sized pliers :)

The bad:

- Heavy: 8.5 oz, or 240 grams. Too heavy to carry in my pants pocket. I don't carry tools on my belt, but probably this would feel heavy there also.
- Because of the outside opening blades, there are sharp edges when the tool is closed, which I can imagine would eat through your pocket if you put it there.
- Blades designed for right-hand thumb opening. If a knife is designed for one-hand opening, I would much rather have it ambidextrous.
- Ruler (cm and inches) is much less useful than on other tools, because it is on the inside. You open the whole tool to use it, and the pliers get in the middle of the ruler line. Also the ruler markings are not as clearly readable as other tools. For me, the ruler is actually a very useful feature, so the Wave scores a minus here.
- Medium philips and plain screwdriver are actually in a bit holder, which has many issues: too short, feels a little flimsy, and the bits are not standard size, so you can't use anything but what you buy from Leatherman. This is another minus compared to other simpler and cheaper multitools.
