Leatherman create cutting-edge multi-tools and knives that provide unbeatable functionality in a product that fits in your pocket. They're loaded to the nines with tools, knives and accessories and they won't break the bank either.
Leatherman was founded by Tim Leatherman from Oregon, United States. His idea came from a budget trip to Europe with his wife Chau in 1975, travelling around in an old Fiat 500. Unfortunately Tim was constantly fixing this car on the side of the road and only had a poor selection of tools and a scout knife. He longed for a pair of pliers!
Tim decided when he got back to the U. S that he would make his next project a pocket knife with a pair of pliers attached. After 3 years in his garage,Tm finally made "Mr Crunch". It took another 8 years before he could bring his first Pocket Survival Tool to market and this came into being with the help of fellow engineer Steve Burlinger in 1983. In their first year they sold 30,000 and by the 1990's this figure was 1 million! Today the Leatherman company is still manufacturing in Portland, Oregon employing 400 people, producing 30 different models. Leatherman tools are now sold all over the world and numerous people's lives have even been saved by them! Today this company's range includes pockets sized designs, black oxide versions for the military and service industry, lots of accessories, priding themselves on their 25 year guarantee.
