Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

The Leatherman Wave multi-tool is hands down our most popular model, made famous by its outside accessible blades that can be deployed with just one hand. When we redesigned it in 2004, we gave the new Wave larger knives, stronger pliers, longer wire cutters and all-locking blades. Perfect for any job, adventure, or everyday task, the Wave multi-tool is an international best-seller.

From the Manufacturer

The Wave multitool's compact folded shape hides a wealth of tools and blades within.
The Wave Multitool From Leatherman: Better than Ever

The most popular full-size Leatherman tool is now better than ever. Larger knives, stronger pliers, longer wire cutters and all-locking blades make the new Wave an essential piece of equipment for any job or adventure. The pliers have been redesigned to withstand more than double the previous squeezing load, and the new bronze bushing makes one-handed knife access a smooth operation -- plus, the one-at-a-time blade selection function means that the tool you want is the tool you get. The versatile Wave comes with a durable and attractive leather/nylon combination sheath.

The Wave includes several screw bits for added versatility.

User Features

This Wave model has four exterior blades that can be accessed even while the tool is closed. (Note: the knife blade can only be opened when the tool is closed.) You can open the blades with one hand by placing your thumb in the thumbhole at the base of the blade, and rotating until the knife is fully extended. This securely engages the locking mechanism.

The saw and file both have nail nicks at their tips for easy access. The locking mechanism is marked with a padlock symbol on the tool itself. To unlock the blades, all you have to do is press the locking mechanism toward the handle until the blade slides past the lock.

Accessing the interior features is a snap, too -- just grip the handles and rotate them open. Each interior blade can be opened by using the nail nicks. The scissors extend in the very same way, and they lock into place for secure, safe use. And of course, it's easy to change the tool bits, too. Just remove the bit from the driver and pop a new one into place.

Optional Accessories (not included)

Expand your Wave's capabilities with the Bit Kit, offering 21 double-ended bits. Or, you can add a pocket clip and quick-release lanyard ring.

The Leatherman Tool Group and its History of Quality

In 1975, Leatherman Tool Group founder Tim Leatherman was inspired by leaky pipes and a cranky car on a budget trip to Europe -- and thus the idea for his first pocket survival tool was conceived. Since then, Leatherman has become an internationally recognized company with hundreds of employees and a wide variety of durable, versatile, stylish products. Created with bold designs and truly rugged construction, Leatherman products are a perfect addition for tool kits, emergency sets, and glove compartments everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leatherman Wave Aug. 30 2012
By Dawn
Verified Purchase
I bought this tool for myself for camping (tents and horses, not RVing). My husband and son recommended it and I am not disappointed! All the features are useful, handy, and durable. The nail file even works well! I do use a normal can opener if I need to open many cans (I can all our meals in metal cans) because the one on the Leatherman is slow in comparison, but it is sharp and works well for the style it is. My husband says he feels naked without his and I am developing a dependence on mine too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leatherman Wave multitool Nov. 13 2012
Verified Purchase
I now own 2 Leatherman Waves: one for my belt at work, one for belt away from work. I found the knives durable and well made. I really like the removable/replaceable driver bits which have come in handy - the reversing straight/philips head gets used often. I have broken the small driver bit several times attempting tasks I shouldn't have. I wouldn't necessarily get one for backpacking because they are weighty, but for getting things done around work or home the Wave can't be beat. The straight and serrated knife blades are locking. The knife edges have held up reasonably well and I've not had to sharpen either of the knives. If you do find a Wave at a reasonable price - get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leatherman Wave: superb in every way Dec 29 2012
Verified Purchase
i've had a Leatherman for more than 20 years and use it frequently, love the design, versatility and quality. I bought my son the Wave for Christmas, it surpassed my expectations in every way: clever design, easy access to frequently used tools, and the build quality is superb. Excellent tool for everyday use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A small tool that goes a long way. Nov. 13 2012
By Rob
Verified Purchase
After owning this for a couple weeks, I've put it to use almost every day I've had it. The sheath it comes with has a hole so you can attach it to your belt and while it's on there it's not noticeable at all. But hey, as soon as you need a screwdriver or a knife or pliers or damn near anything, it's there. I'd also recommend getting the bit kit to go with since it's 24 double sided bits, so you have almost everything you need at your disposal.

Long story short, well worth the money and would definitely recommend this to anybody who does the slightest bit of handyman-type work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very complete.... Nov. 13 2012
Verified Purchase
The tool has just about everything I needed. It feels well built, as do most of the Leatherman products. I am quite happy with the purchase and have no doubt that I will get many years of usage from this fantastic tool.

I guess I should leave a note for Leatherman to read to make some little improvements. It would be nice to have a place on the sheath for the extra screw bit (or bits), and an awl or reamer tool included (knife blade is a bit big to substitute).

5.0 out of 5 stars one simple reason to buy leatherman April 2 2014
my 7 year old wave had a broken plier tip from me trying to pry s*** with it, both blades were so dull you couldn't cut anything any more and the file was worn down in some areas. I printed off the warranty form on their website, sent it in with the tool and withing 6 days got a brand new wave, no questions asked. Fantastic company that stands behind its products
