The Charge Family
The Charge TTi is part of a broader line of Leatherman multitools bearing the Charge name. Originally, the Charge line consisted of the Ti and the XTi, two high-end tools whose major distinguishing characteristic was having handles made from titanium. For 2007, Leatherman has added three new members to the Charge family: the TTi, the ALX, and the AL. As you might expect, the TTi is an upgraded version of the Ti and XTi. The AL and ALX, meanwhile, come with handles made from 6061 T6 aluminum, an ultra-light and super-strong material used in aircraft construction. There are also minor variations among the tools included in each unit. Well discuss those shortly.
Leatherman has added several key design elements to all of these gorgeous new Charge tools. For instance, the knife blades are bigger and wider to give you more cutting edge. The pliers can withstand 133% higher squeezing load than Leathermans original tools, enabling a tighter hold for tough jobs. Youll never have to worry about the Charge coming unhinged, either, thanks to a 50% increase in lock strength. Multiple bit drivers also are a standard feature, and each tool has bronze bushings at the hinges to make opening components a snap.
Titanium vs. Aluminum
You may be asking whether you want to buy titanium or aluminum. Although both offer superior durability and strength, titanium has an edge in both departments. Titanium is also slightly lighter than aluminum, so it would be a good choice if weight is a major concern. However, titanium also costs more, which is something to factor in if saving .2 ounces doesnt matter.
The Charge TTi
The TTi supplants the XTi as Leathermans top-of-the-line multitool. Not only is the TTi .10 ounces lighter than the XTi, but it also packs an S30V stainless steel knife that delivers an optimal combination of edge retention, flexibility, and hardness. This is an upgrade from the XTis 154CM steel knife, which previously was the highest grade knife you could get from Leatherman (incidentally, Leatherman outfitted the Charge ALX and AL come with 154CM blades, an upgrade from the standard 420 series knife). The TTi also has a crimper and a cutting hook. The crimper is an ideal accessory for anyone working with electrical wires or metals, while the hook is a fantastic addition for those who need to be ready for emergency situations.
The TTi combines the features of the ALX and the AL into a single package (There is one small exception: the ALX is the only Charge to have two large bit drivers.). For example, if youre looking at the ALX or the AL youll have to choose whether you want a cutting hook or scissors, because neither has both (the ALX has a cutting hook while the AL has scissors). If you think you might need a cutting and scissors in the same multitool, then you should strongly consider the TTi. Full TTi specs:
- Titanium handles (exclusive to TTi)
- Needlenose pliers
- Regular pliers
- Wire cutters
- Hard-wire cutters
- S30V Clip-point knife (exclusive to TTi)
- Serrated knife
- Wood/metal file
- Diamond-coated file
- Large bit driver
- Small bit driver
- 9 double-end bits
- Ruler (8 inch)
- Bottle/can opener
- Wire stripper
- fixed lanyard ring
- Quick-release lanyard ring
- Removable pocket clip
All three Charge iterations come with a premium leather or nylon sheath. Both versions will carry the tools in their open or closed position and two side pockets hold your extra necessitieseven a mini-flashlight. An inside back pocket holds Charge's included bits and has room for a full Bit Kit (sold separately) giving you up to 42 bits to choose from. Don't want to wear a sheath? Then clip your Charge to your jacket, backpack or car's visor with the removable pocket clip. Or, choose the quick-release lanyard ring. With it, you're able to safely keep the tool on any lanyard and detach it quickly when you need it.

The Leatherman Story
The Leatherman phenomenon began in 1975 when founder Tim Leatherman embarked on a trip across Europe and the Middle East in a cranky Fiat. Leatherman, an engineer by training, became so fed up with breakdowns and other hassles that he fashioned a prototype of what he called a Pocket Survival Tool out of cardboard. Two years later the first PST was born in his basement, and the rest is history. Today the Leatherman company produces dozens of different multitools, knives, pruners, and accessories, and is recognized across the world for its cutting edge designs and superior quality.

The quality of these particular items - blades, files and saw - seem to me to be the things that set one multi-tool apart from the other. The quality and design of one screwdriver bit or can opener is pretty much the same as that of another. And the good multi-tools all have "decent" pliers. But it is not so with cutting blades, saws and files. Here there can be a big difference.
The L-Man Charge is NOT the largest multi-tool I own but its two cutting blades (my others have just one) saw and file ARE the largest featured on any of them (no longer true, as I now have a Swisstool X). I believe this is possible because of the fact they are accessed from the outside. Their size need not be limited to make room for the pliers to fold into the handles as with tools whose blades are all accessed from inside.
The saw, file and the blades are not only larger but also of very good quality. The saw cuts as effectively as any I have used with very little clogging or sticking. One side of the file is diamond coated, making it more versatile. There is a serrated sheepsfoot blade with an integral cutting hook (very useful) and best of all the main, straight-edged blade is of premium S30V steel. If you know knives you know this is top quality stuff (and not cheap). Most other companies - even the good ones - don't even publish what they are building their tools from. I get the feeling there is a lot of 440a (or lesser steel) out there.Read more ›
1. Pound-for-pound, I've found no other gear that packs so many high quality tools in such a clean and comfortable design. Much attention was given to the layout and ease of use. It's solid when doing any task and still feels comfortable and "beefy" in your hands. Its definitely not cheap feeling in any way.
2. The S30V steel blade is one of the highest quality knives out there, and better than most dedicated knives I've used. Many manufacturers skimp on the steel quality when it comes to where it's needed the most: the knife. But this has great shape, steel, and sharpness.
3. The pliers deliver a lot of functionality in one nicely performing package: soft wire cutter, hard wire cutter, standard pliers, crimper, and needle nose pliers. I'm sure anyone could successfully argue that a dedicated tool for each of those jobs would perform better and have more surface area for the job. But, this is a multitool and I've used every one of these and they did the work I needed, and it's all together.
4. All of the tools lock out, and the locks are all solid.

It is great now, and I am very happy with it. In the end I would give the tool a perfect 5 stars (if it was in 100% condition when delivered), but the company only 1 star. Hence, 3 star rating. If you're lucky, you'll get a great unit first time around. However, most likely you'll need to "finish it by yourself". Then again, if you're buying this, you're probably a DIY type, so that shouldn't be a problem!
- sturdy, good looking, good feeling, and overall excellent design (especially the scissors!)
- S30V steel blade is the "cream of the cream"
- all blades and accessories lock safely! (or at least are supposed to)
- common poor finish out-of-the-box, needs return/warranty attention/DIY to achieve 100% operational status
- the bits the tool comes with are pretty much useless (unless you work with hex a lot), need to purchase accessory bits to get some useful drivers
