The "full size" line of tools are all about 100mm long when folded, and include the Charge TTi, the New Wave, the Rebar, and the Wingman. The first two are much more expensive than the latter two, and I will only discuss the Rebar and Wingman.
Leatherman multitools can be further subdivided between blade-in and blade-out designs. In the former, you must open the tool to have access to the knife blade(s); in the latter they are available just as they would be in a pocket knife
The Rebar is a blade-in design; the Wingman is blade-out. If your most common use of the tool will be for cutting with the knife blade(s), then the Wingman would be more convenient.
The Rebar has a much superior shear-type wire-cutter with replaceable blades. The Wingman has a butt-type or pinch-type wire-cutter. Both work, but the Rebar works noticeably better, especially for hard wire.
The Rebar has two large blades, a plain blade and a serrated blade; the Wingman has only a single combination blade, but it is instantly available because of the blade-out design.
The Rebar has a full-size double-sided file with a serrated edge that can serve as a hack saw. Wingman has what can only be described as a toy, a single-sided, half length file. I would consider it worthless.
The Rebar has a full-size wood saw; the Wingman has none.
The Wingman, however, has an excellent scissor, the best of the whole line, while the Rebar has no scissor.
The Wingman's pliers are spring loaded; not so the Rebar.
All the blades, even the small screw-drivers, of the Rebar lock; only the knife and scissor of the Wingman lock. A negative, however, of the Rebar is that the lock-release levers protrude enough to catch if you carry it in your pocket.
The Rebar comes with a nylon sheath, while the Wingman has no sheath but does have a good retentive pocket clip. Also the Wingman has a somewhat more rounded shape at the end so carries better in the pocket than any of the other full-size multitools.
Both Rebar and Wingman have a good Phillips screw driver, but the Rebar's is superior.
Unlike the Rebar, the Wingman has no awl.
At around 22 dollars the Wingman is the best value; the Rebar with sheath is around 37.
Which to buy? If you want a multitool small enough to carry in your pocket, one that you will keep in your desk or kitchen junk drawer, if you will mostly use the knife, and find a scissor handy, I'd recommend the Wingman.
If, however, you want a more fully competent multitool, that can compare well with the much more expensive Wave and Charge, a tool that includes excellent file, awl, and superior wire cutter, choose the Rebar.
What if price is no object? I'd still probably recommend the Rebar. It is noticeably lighter (191 vs 241 g) than the New Wave, and it is 3 mm less in breadth and thickness, which seems little until you hold the two together. The Wave and Charge are simply too big for even occasional pocket use.
All of the multitools mentioned in this review are of high quality and will last a long time. Some reviews have said that Leathermans are not made like they used to be, and a review here compares unfavorably the Rebar with the Supertool. (They are similar in design but the Supertool is considerably bigger.) In any case, I have an "old Supertool", made when they still forged "USA" into the pliers, and for the life of me I can see no difference in quality. Certainly the wire cutter of the Rebar is superior. (Incidentally, they are still made in the USA, but because of stupid California law can't say so.)
So, just buy one, or several, they are all good. I have one in each car, pack, kitchen tool drawer, backpack, etc. I guess you can have too many Lethermen, but I have not gotten there yet!
• Excellent build quality. USA made. No play, no rattling, no machining marks, everything is smooth and precise. Solid steel construction, no plastic parts.
• Good selection of tools. Replaceable wire-cutters. All tools lock in place.
• Comfortable handles. Rounded-off edges provide a nice grip for extended usage.
• Size and weight. This is the lightest of Leatherman's full-size tools. Can comfortably rest in a pocket or on your belt, while still having most tools you'll need, plus one of the best plier heads in the multitool world.
• Performance: Surprisingly strong pliers for its size. 154CM wire-cuters, the exact pair on the larger tools, like the Surge. Much more powerful than the pinch-type on the Wingman. D2 tool steel Philips head. Very durable and strong. Sharp blades, beefy can-opener and awl, full-size file, very aggressive saw.
• 25-year warranty from Leatherman. As long as you don't go crazy with it, you will be passing it down to your kids.
Why you should not buy the Rebar:
While an excellent tool, the Rebar may not fit your needs as well as another multitool might. By design, this will not appeal to everybody.
• All tools are accessible by opening the tool up. This has its pros and cons. It makes the tool smoother, with fewer edges that could catch on your pants/pockets, and not as prone to dirt etc, not to mention that one-handed opening blades are illegal in many countries. Depending on which tools you will use the most, the Rebar's design may not suit your needs.
• No scissors. Having no scissors by choice of design is not a flaw (having ineffective scissors would be a flaw). If you want scissors in a multitool it should be obvious that the Rebar should not be your first choice.
• No spring-loaded pliers. Like having no scissors, having no spring in the pliers is a design choice. They chose to make it like it is. If spring-loaded pliers are high in your priority list, this is not the tool you are looking for.
• No pocket clip. Though easily carried in a pocket, it cannot actually be clipped on one. The Rebar is not a one-handed, rapid deployment tool, so it would make sense not to have a pocket clip on it. You could add one if you really wanted, though.
• It's too small for you. While very capable, there are larger models by Leatherman that may better suit your heavy-duty needs.
Do your research before you buy a multitool. Set your priorities first, and buy a multitool that covers them adequately. Don't buy a multitool and try to adjust your needs to it.
Think about what's important to you.
Are you buying it to use it, or just because it looks cool?
Are you buying it for work, hobbies, or just to have one?
Are you buying it for the pliers, and considering everything else a bonus?
Are you buying it mainly for the blades?
The Rebar does not fit everyone's needs, but there are many different designs out there, so there should be something for everyone.
Check prices, check reviews, and if possible, go to a shop and get to hold it in your hands.
Finding the ideal multitool, with the perfect tool selection, quality, ergonomics, and price, is very difficult. You will probably have to buy a few. But eventually, you'll find something that is almost perfect. For me, it's the Rebar.
