Leatherman is well known for quality multi-tools. Founded in 1983 by mechanical engineer Tim Leatherman who wanted to design a "Boy Scout knife with pliers". A goal that was inspired by a European and Middle East trip he took with his wife where he attempted to use a simple pocketknife to repair their repeatedly malfunctioning car and leaky hotel plumbing. Leatherman are considered the best multi tools and survival knives/tools in the world. Different to a Swiss Army Knife or Victorinox, a Leatherman is built around a pair of pliers with up to 21 additional tools stored in the handles. A must for the outdoors or next adventure.
