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.

"Now you're ready"
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.
Most reviewers note a black substance remains on your hands for the first while after you bought it. This is not a product flaw, but rather the result of chemistry. Black oxide is a "conversion coating", which means it changes the surface of the product, rather than covering the product, as paint would. Black oxide is formed by oxidizing the outer layer of atoms on the surface. In effect, it's controlled rust. When you first use the product, the black substance is this outer layer. It will wear away to some extent, but that' the nature of this finish. To avoid the stains, simply take a rag with WD-40 (or similar oil) and rub the tool surfaces thoroughly. The oil will set the finish and allow it to last longer. This is what your skin oils are actually doing when you handle the tool.
The only other thing to do is open and close the tools and number of times to loosen them up. If you're rubbing down the surface, you can open the tools to wipe them and take care of the stiffness as well.
I highly recommend this multitool. It really is fantastic. I've fixed my lab stool (screws were falling out), cleared two jammed staplers, and opened numerous packages.
This really is a wonderfully engineering and built tool that will last for a very long time.
The Wave comes with a sheath...If you are not a fan of wearing a sheath; I would recommend buying the pocket clip w/ lanyard loop kit (Leatherman Wave comes w/ a built in lanyard loop) at the same time you buy your Leatherman Wave. I would do this because after only two days of wearing the sheath on my belt; It felt like I was wearing a brick on my belt. I bumped into everything with it and was trying to find a comfortable way to keep it from catching on my seat belt. I could not find a comfortable way to wear this sheath. I ordered the pocket clip w/ lanyard loop and installed it on my Wave. Wow...What a difference. I can clip it to my front or back pocket and I can hardly feel it is there. I carry this now every day over my regular knife.
OK..Now on to the finish...Black Oxide. I love this finish. What a great Ops look & very COOL!! This is the cheapest way to finish a military weapon / tool to provide some kind of protection against corrosion. I wouldn't think this would be a problem, because this baby is made from stainless steel, but, stainless steel can spot or stain if you don't take care or clean it often. The Black Oxide finish will allow you to go a little longer without oiling or cleaning.
When you get your Leatherman Wave w/ Black Oxide finish ...you will get "Black Hands"..I mean the finish will rub off on to your hands. No worry!Read more ›
