Leatherman Wave Plus Review

Leatherman Wave Plus Leatherman Wave Plus
For many of us, the tool box in our house or car is full of many different tools, big and small, and some that we hardly use. Even if we own a multi-tool, we are not used to making it an everyday tool of ours. Even though we are aware that a multi-tool is fitted with many common tools and features that could conveniently fix most of our daily maintenance and repair needs, it is just not the go-to tool when we most need it.

A multi-tool is not only handy at home or in car, it is a great tool for hikers as well. We got our hands on the Leatherman Wave Plus recently. Aesthetically, the multi-tool looks solid and is of premium quality. All its clever little tools are strategically placed together with easy access. If you are new to the Leatherman Wave Plus, it will take you a little bit of time to get used to this multi-tool, and its locking and safety features.
 
It comes with 18 essential tools and you can practically tackle any task with ease. The Leatherman weighs 241g and is made of 420HC Stainless Steel. When folded, the multi-tool is only 10cm in length. The length of the body is perfect to turn into a handle when we use the 7.37cm blade to do our work.
 
 
The sheath,included, is slick and fit the multi-tool nicely and securely. It makes the multi-tool even easier for us to store it practically anywhere, be it in our pocket or backpack.
 
These are the 18 useful tools fitted into the Leatherman Wave Plus:
 
  1. Needlenose Pliers
  2. Regular Pliers
  3. Premium Replaceable Wire Cutters
  4. Premium Replaceable Hard-wire Cutters
  5. Electrical Crimper
  6. Wire Stripper
  7. 420HC Knife
  8. 420HC Serrated Knife
  9. Saw
  10. Spring-action Scissors
  11. Ruler (8 in | 19 cm)
  12. Can Opener
  13. Bottle Opener
  14. Wood/Metal File
