Leatherman, like Kleenex and Band-Aid, is one of those brand names that has come to stand for the category of products it produces: multi-tools. That’s because we’ve collectively agreed that Leatherman produces some of the best available and, among the 50-plus tools in its arsenal, the Wave is the best-seller.
The Wave features all the tools one might imagine should be present in a multi-tool: serrated and plain-edge knives, pliers, scissors, a bottle and can opener, wire cutters, a screwdriver, a ruler, a file (for the “Plus” re-make, Leatherman added replaceable wire cutters). Nothing overly-specialized or unnecessarily specific is present, just the essentials. It opens in a butterfly shape and it’s made of stainless steel; it is the classic Leatherman, which makes it the classic multi-tool.
Right now the Wave is on sale for 30 percent off at Huckberry. The multi-tool is four inches when closed, weighs 8.5 ounces and comes with a classic leather sheath and a 25-year warranty.
