The Leatherman Wave is simply put, the most popular multi-tool on the market. Why? I believe the Leatherman Wave is most popular because it comes packed with tools, but doesn’t put a dent on the wallet. Usually the Wave is around the $70 price point, which makes it significantly less than its counterparts. Although at a discount to the competition it doesn’t sacrifice usability.
Leatherman Wave Review:
- Needlenose/Regular Pliers Pliers: One of the most used tools on a multi-tool.
- Hard Wire Cutters: For cutting wire/cable
- Wire Cutter/Stripper: Although located in different positions, used in electrical task
- Knife/Serrated Knife/ Saw: All made from 420HC Steel
- Spring Action Scissors: You either love them, or never use them
- 8 inch ruler
- Can Opener/Bottle Opener
- Wood Filer/Diamond Coated file
- Small/Medium/Large bit screw driver
Also included in the box: Eyeglass Screwdriver, Phillips #1-2 & 3/16″ Screwdriver. The eyeglass screwdriver comes in handy more than you would think. More and more electronics these days have those tiny screws and a standard screwdriver just can’t do the job. Leatherman Wave User Manual
Who is the Leatherman Wave for?
The Wave is for the Harry Homeowner. This is not the most technical of multi-tools, but it is surely fit for the everyday around the house jobs. This is a great for an all purpose cary tool. The Wave is a full-size multi-tool, but is on the lighter side compared to some of the more technical tools like the MUT or DET. Weighing in at 8.5 oz and measuring 4 inches closed, it is easily slipped into a pocket or sheath. A lot of potential buyers like to draw a comparison between the Wave and the Leatherman Charge as they are very similar in layout. However there are a few distinct differences you can read about in our Leatherman Wave vs Charge.
