Leatherman Knives is a US based company. It produces some of the finest multi-tools and sells them only to the US market. Nonetheless, it is one of the top pioneer brands in the knifing industry today.
Leatherman was started a few years in 1983. The owner of the company Tim Leatherman came up with the idea after using a Swiss Army Knives and realizing that the knives didn’t do for him everything that he wanted.
So he decided to start Leatherman – the bonus of being wealthy. Since then, Leatherman multi-tools brand has been evolving. Today they are a knifing powerhouse with a variety of products including Leatherman scissors, strap cutters, screwdrivers, and bottle openers.
The multi-tool can endure just about any kind of work and still remain in shape. In any case, they come with a 25 year warranty. Take a look at some of the bestselling Leatherman Multi-Tools that the market has today.

What Makes Leatherman Knives Different?
Many people will agree that the tool is highly operable with one hand. Few multi tools can match that. Even better is the 25 year warranty that all Leatherman products come with. This may seem absurd; but for a highly dependable knifing or multi tool design, it’s highly achievable.
Personally, I fell in love with Leatherman Multi-Tools because of all-locking features; but who wouldn’t? For multi tools that are often sharp and needs you to be careful when in use, an all locking features is a good feature to start from.
