Product Description

The Leatherman Wave multi-tool is hands down our most popular model, made famous by its outside-accessible blades that can be deployed with just one hand. When we redesigned it in 2004, we gave the new Wave larger knives, stronger pliers, longer wire cutters, and all-locking blades. Perfect for any job, adventure, or everyday task, the Wave multi-tool is an international best-seller.

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.

This Leatherman has not left my belt since I got it. The outside-opening blades are a wonderful change from the traditional inside-opening ones. The blades are sharp, and the tools are strong. I work as an IT admin, and the pliers and screwdrivers are priceless. I have owned a Gerber and a few knock-off brands, and they bent and broke. The Wave holds up. Highly recommended.

I've owned 3 of these in the last ten years, lost one in the woods, gave one away to a friend, and now this one is MINE MINE MINE. Of the three, I have put them all through some serious abuse, like arc-shorting the bland on 220V line, breaking one blade by prying (my fault, for sure) and each time, Leatherman has replaced it with no questions asked. I have owned about every flavor of multi-tool out there, from Gerber to Schrade, and this one, without question, is the most well though-out, and practical I've found. The blades being accessible WITHOUT having to unfold the tool, is HUGE. I can't stress that enough, most other tools you have to use two hand, and 4 steps later, you finally have a simple knife blade available, this one- one hand process from removal to replacement in the sheath.

I wish I had a negative to counter this review, but I've yet to find one. All the accessories work terrific, I wouldn't even consider a day hike without this on my belt. or a day at work, actually. Use a little preventitive maintenance on it, like the occassional wipe-down with some light oil, and you'll have no problems with this. Excellent product, made in Oregon, and the replacement garuntee is wonderful.

I think this my 5th or 6th product from Leatherman. Why did I buy it? Because it is black. Just waaaaaay cooler than a regular Wave.

Why not five stars, then? The product has a few minor flaws: just like the regular Wave, the bit holder is a little bit on the weak side - no big deal, really. What really can be a bit of a problem is that the smaller blades, can opener etc. are impossible to get out when the tool is new (hint use a small coin and lots of WD-40). Maybe the black oxide coating is resulting in higher friction between the parts - dunno, but something the engineers at Leatherman should look into.

Do I recommend the product? Absolutely. Best form factor, good value for money. Does it HAVE to be the black version? Maybe not. I have both - the black one is to show off, the regular (stainless) one gets used a lot.

When I say Leatherman, I mean multitool. THERE IS NO OTHER! I've carried a Leatherman Wave for years. My first generation Wave didn't lock. Now that they have safety locking, I love it even more! The company I work for purchases the Wave for all their technicians to carry at work. Before long it was my best friend. I carry it everywhere. Heavy, Heck yes it is! But that's what makes them almost indestructible! I have to keep pulling my pants up. Specially now with cell phones, but I would never get dressed without my Leatherman. You whip it out on the side of the road to help a stranded motorist, they think you're a magician dipping into your bag of tricks! Need to cut a lime at a party it's there! YES, IT DOES OPEN BOTTLES! It does everything! If you know how to use it. If something on it breaks, it has a life time guarantee. No questions asked, just Send it back, and they'll send it back to you repaired, or in most cases send you a new one. I highly recommend the leather case. It's much easier to get the tool in and out of, (and it looks good)! So if you're good with your hands, and have lots of ingenuity, don't leave home without your Leatherman Wave. Everybody else buy a cheap light knockoff! BECAUSE REAL MEN DON'T CRY, THEY JUST GET IT DONE!!!
