Top Customer Reviews
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 could 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 it carries better than any of the other full-size multitools in the pocket.
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 a stupid California law keeps them from stamping it on the tool.)
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!
For me the best price vs features of all models.
I love the scissors which are better than the Charge.
The package opener has become my third most used tool behind the pliers and the scissors.
The Spring-loaded pliers are awesome.
The combo knife is nice and sharp.
No safety torx to open or maintenance your multitool.
The ruler is useless.
The screwdrivers are good but I’d really liked to see the lock bit.
It is not the first time that someone says this but Leatherman should do one or both of the next things.
1. Offer spare parts of their models so the enthusiast can modify or customize their tools.
2. Create a model in which you could choose your tools, probably from their website. And to be able to buy different parts and we decided when or how use them, for example
I never use the saw in the Charge or the ruler in the wingman but I really use the bit lock and the package opener, and during weekends I used a lot the knife and the bottle opener.
I was a bit disappointed in the fit and finish of the Wingman when I got it. The finish looked pretty crude and was dirty. Perhaps it was opened previously, but in general looked more like a product from China. I am not sure where the components and assembly were done on this particular model.
The blade had a pretty rough edge on it so I cleaned it up a bit and it is quite sharp. The package opener is a great idea and I think this is an addition that should be in more of their tools in the future. The pliers look decent and the spring action is nice. The scissors are much like the Surge minus the rubber thumb protector.
I would love to see the Wingman in an upgraded form. I would pay more money for sure if it was done in the same quality as their other knives, or even upgrading to a Titanium model.
For my choice, the low price was an added bonus. I chose it more on the tool arrangement. However, for emergency kits, the car, in the drawer, EDC etc this is an excellent choice. In my opinion one of the most important things to have is a decent pair of scissors along with pliers and this has both. The low price makes it possible to get three of them for the price of a Surge. I also don't mean to insinuate that these are as bad as a normal cheapy Chinese multitool. The quality is quite good, just not what I am normally used to seeing from Leatherman.
Also as a buying consideration, nothing beats Leatherman's warranty. This alone should make getting a Wingman well worth it.
Update: I bought a second Wingman to keep in the car. The finish was far worse than the first one I bought. It was sealed in a clamshell package, so no way it could have been tampered with. There were quite a few deep nicks on the handle, scratches on the pliers, fingerprints and overall it looks like it was used. I consider myself a Leatherman fanboy, but this is really disappointing.
