The Leatherman Super Tool 300 is premier gadgetry in the palm of your hand. With 19 tools, it covers the array of gear you need for just about any project. And at 4.5 inches closed, it’s the perfect everyday carry tool that doesn’t feel too bulky in your pocket. Whatever the task, the Super Tool has your back….unless you’re trying to use scissors. In that case, it will leave you cold in the dark. That’s because of all the tools present in the Leatherman, scissors ain’t one. Really, that’s the only MAJOR con. The only other real call out is it’s kind of hard to clean because of how much is packed into such a small space – but it’s really not too bad.

The other cool thing is the strength of Leatherman’s guarantee. Trust us when we say you can purchase this multitool without worry.

Craftsmanship

Leatherman built an insanely tough pair of pliers with the Super Tool 300. The grip has a slanted tip so you can navigate in small spots. Even with gloves on, it is simple to grab various parts thanks to the wide side cutouts. Standard wire cutters include stranded, hard, and normal varieties. These are detachable, you can quickly repair or sharpen them.

Forged from 420HC and 154CM stainless steel, it’s not surprising Leatherman offers a 25 year guarantee.

The numbers 1 and 2 in the picture above are a key to two handy features of the Leatherman. Check it out below.

1. All Locking Features

With the exception of the pliers’ heads, every tool and knife has locking features that ensure both your safety and the safety of the equipment.

All locking characteristics signify that every tool and knife on the body of the handle will lock into place. You can use each tool securely and effectively thanks to the design’s complete locking. Simply apply pressure to the implement while securely finishing the task by locking it into place when completely opened, and then manually unlock the tool to store it away.

2. Lanyard Ring

This reliable ring is used to firmly and safely fasten the tool to a lanyard. When working near water or on scaffolding, individuals frequently lanyard their tools to prevent losing them in case they fall.

Bottom Line

There are a lot of multitools on the market. They have become a popular item over the last 10-15 years. Not all of them are quality. That said, Leatherman has set themselves apart.

When you purchase a Leatherman tool, you are buying from a trusted and reliable American manufacturer. Their Super Tool 300 is a premium product at a non-premium price. 19 tools total for around $100. That comes out to about $5.20 a tool. Not bad!
