The Blast multitool's compact folded shape measures just 4 inches long.
Loaded with the most requested features, the Leatherman Blast is ready for work. Longer blades mean easier slicing, sawing, filing and more, while the Zytel handle inserts provide a comfortable, reliable grip. And in this model, new designs for the handles and pliers help the Blast sustain more than double the squeezing load of the original PST. This multitool set includes all the handy, flip and fold-out tools you'd expect from an industry-leading brand -- all with 100-percent stainless steel construction, manufactured to the optimum grade hardness for each tool. The Blast boasts an open-tooth saw design that allows easy starting and cutting on the fly, plus long wire cutters for a lengthy reach. These pliers are especially designed for a large squeezing load, with a unique jaw design that adds durability.

To expand your Blast's functionality, try adding the removable bit driver or the universal tool adapter (both sold separately)
The Blast comes with one double-ended screwdriving bit.
The Blast features all-locking blades. To release the interior blades, all you have to do is press the grooved portion of the push-lock button and carefully rotate the blade. The regular and hard-wire cutters are located within the plier jaws, and the straight knife blades may be easily sharpened using standard sharpening methods.
To access the interior features of the Blast, just grip the handles and swing them open. Each interior blade can be opened using the nail nicks, and so can the scissors. When the scissors are fully extended, they lock securely into place for safety and ease of use.
Optional Accessories (not included)
The Removable Bit Driver Accessory is sold separately, and makes a great addition to the Blast multitool. This removable bit driver works by installing right on top of the integrated Phillips screwdriver blade. You can also add the Universal Tool Adapter to your Blast arsenal. This adapter is a standard 1/4-inch hex drive that locks in three positions.

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.

I will be comparing it to the Wave since I have some experience with it as well.
1. Appearance and size - The Blast weights a little less, but not by a much. It is about as heavy as you would want a pocket carry tool to be. Flat edges when folded so it won't tear fabric. If you will be carrying your tool in a pocket with no sheath, the Wave has some uneven edges. They aren't so much jagged, but just not flat. The Blast is a better tool for this.
2. The pliers - Strong and functional. You won't find many multi-tool pliers that are bigger or better, except maybe on SOG tools. They are identical to the pliers on the Wave. I do find the Blast pliers more comfortable to use, and I think it's because of the Zytel handles. For those of you who don't know, they are NOT spring loaded. I've seen reviewers complain about this before.
3. The tools - On the Wave, there are outside accessible tools (straight edge blade, serrated blade, saw, and file). That is the biggest difference. The Blast has all of the same tools throughout EXCEPT for the serrated blade and a second bit driver, and you must open the tool to use them. While it can be a useful feature to swing a knife open with one hand (Wave), I don't find it to be a necessity, and I don't miss having a serrated knife.
Another difference is that bit driver. The Blast has dedicated screwdrivers, which are stronger and more versatile, in a sense. While you can swap out several different bits on the Wave without buying the attachment required for the Blast (see optional accessories on the Blast's product page), they are much shorter with no extension and that never helps when dealing with recessed screws, etc. The Blast has a little more reach, and I've always been partial to "real" screwdrivers than removable bits. Not to say the bits don't work, but the actual screwdrivers feel better to me. The Blast has a standard sized Philips screwdriver along with a large flat and small(er) flat. The Wave only has the large dedicated flat screwdriver. They all work excellently for 90% of the jobs most people need it for.
Both tools have an extra small bit driver. Works excellently for small electronic items or eyeglasses.
Scissors, file, can/bottle opener- Well, there isn't much to say here. All are standard for multi-tools of this size. The files are adequate, the scissors are meant for very light duty jobs, and I've had no issues with the bottle opener. They all work fine and I wouldn't buy a tool without any one of them.
Ruler - By far and away, I prefer this ruler to the one on the Wave. Here, the rulers (one side has inches, the other has cm) are on the large part of the handles and it is easy to read. The Wave's ruler is etched on the small part of the handles, right next to where the tools hide. Very small print and I just don't like it. For most, the ruler isn't a deal-breaker, but I thought I would mention it.
Other - Amazon did another exceptional job on this sale. I received the item quickly and it came in the standard difficult to open Leatherman packaging. The tool can be a bit stiff overall, but nothing is too hard to get access to. I really appreciate that all of the blades are locking. No issues there.
Bottom line: You won't find a better price anywhere else for a tool that can do what the Blast does. It looks good, isn't too large, and has come in handy a few times when I've been without a full set of tools. It is a perfect glove box or console companion and is just the right size to be carried around daily, whether at work or play. You won't feel it on your belt but you'll notice it in your hands. The included leather sheath is of normal quality and made in Mexico. I really like this tool and feel confident recommending it or giving it as a gift. It lacks very little in the way of functionality compared to the Wave but has a noticeably better price tag.
Thanks for reading and I hope this assists in your decision making.
Update 9-5-14: Leatherman sent a replacement tool as promised and it arrived within a week. Unfortunately the emplacement lacked a couple of the features that I regularly used on the Blast. I called Leatherman to see if I could do a change and they sent me a replacement containing the features needed - no issues or problems. It is really, really nice to deal with a company that stands behind its products and promises. Now a customer for life because I know they will be there when I need them. And no, I don't work for them. Based on this experience I wish I had.
After further review of this product I am happy to report this tool continues to perform well, with one exception or minor issue, the bottle cap opener doesn't gets a good grip on the bottles therefore that feature it is useless to me, when I place it on top of my favorite brand of (*drink* *wink* *Yes, beer*) there's no grip at all so I have to find other means to open my bottles which renders the multi-tool purpose obsolete at least for that one function, the rest of the functions are fine and more important anyways but again I don't party hard all the time so I won't miss it that much so it's all good but I didn't give it 5 full stars only because the lack of such feature embarrassed me in front of my friend who has a Gerber multi-tool and his can open those beer bottles in a breeze and after witnessing the awkward/epic fail moment with my bottle opener he said my multi-tool sucked, which granted he's right about but only in that department.
That's it, happy shopping.
I received my new Leatherman 830032 Blast Multitool 3 days ago, so far I've been experimenting with it, one thing that I completely did not noticed in the description was that it does with a sort of "Precision" double sided screw driver bit (Yes both flat head and Philips head) right next to the serrated knife, you can just pull it out with your fingers and insert it the opposite way to use it in whatever case you need to, discovering that feature gave me a nice grin because I wasn't even expecting to have it and I was just counting on the 2 already included flat heads and the one Philips that you can see in the pictures that was a grateful surprise.
As far as the operation of the tool itself at first I was skeptical because as stated the tools do need to be pulled from within the compartments if you want to struggle and have big hands such as myself :P but after going over it, I noticed that you don't necessarily need to do it that way, every tool has a tiny piece of metal sticking out which you can use your nails to pull out and find it relatively easy to use frequently.
In conclusion, if you're looking to get a great quality tool with a reasonable price, get this, you won't regret it, and as always, Amazon shipping was fast and accurate (Thanks to prime).
Would order more and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
