Leatherman has a tool for every job. The founder, Tim Leatherman, discovered the need for a pliers-based multi-purpose tool while traveling abroad. He found he was using his old pocket knife to do everything, but what he really needed was pliers. When he returned home, he set out to engineer the perfect solution to this problem and the first pliers-based Leatherman multi-tool was born. When starting his company, Tim swore to manufacture only the highest quality products to give consumers the best value all while providing living-wage jobs to the local workforce. Today, every multi-tool and knife produced by the Leatherman Tool Group is crafted with care in an Oregon-based factory. Perfect for adventurers, makers, homeowners and officers, with a Leatherman you’re prepared for anything.
