Multi-tool with all the right equipment to get the job done. Made with quality steel and to high standards. It holds together year after year. Pliers, knives, screwdrivers, can opener, awl. wirecutter. If it doesn't have it you really don't need it.

    God's gift to the Customs Service! All the little tools you need to get into things for an exam (after you've used the big tools!) The wire cutter is strong enough to cut small luggage locks. Strong, accurate screwdriver heads to take apart things and a can opener that won't quite. And blades! both a straight and serrated. On the back side is a ruler which is handy when you're trying to create a seizure picture. It gives an accurate, measured perspective to the picture.

    Excellant tool. Always had one in my camera bag from yrs in detection work. Forgot one yr and flew out with it from DC airport. It went through the Airport NP. I was good to go...Til I went through to come back home and they found it in bama....OOPS.

    I got mine a few years ago. It always comes in handy being a mechanic. I took it with me to Iraq, and it's still going. If you don't have one, get one!

    I've had my Leatherman SuperTool for over 10 years. It performed well in the military and it does well on my current job. Not a day goes by that I don't use it for something. The knives hold an edge, the tools are sturdy enough to be usefull and effective and the ruler on the side is great for crime scene photos that require measurement and perspective. Since I use it in these photos and carry it on my belt it is never a problem to use it in court. If you don't have one I would suggest you get one. All around an unbeatable tool.

    I've carried the same leatherman for 9 years, it never lets me down. I use it daily and can't imagine getting along without it.

    This tool comes in handy. There has been several times I have been on patrol and needed a knife, pliers, or something else and I found that this tool has it all. I recommend every officer carry one in their patrol vehicle.

    I have a couple of these tools they work excellent. I carry one while I am on duty for the fire department in my gear. I also carry one in my patrol bag for the police department. I would definetely recommend this tool for anyone looking for a multipurpose tool.

    Im glad someone else has donated one to airport security. I have had several of these. Only left one at the airport. I love the wave. It has the blades on the outside for quick access. Now the only quick access I hope I need is on the lake, fishing.

    IMO Leatherman is the greatest invention of the past 20 years.

    I've had most iterations of the full-size, standard line. This version, pictured above, is my absolute favorite. I currently have the Wave; and, while I like having the diamond stone on the file, and a couple other things, I really prefer the super tool. I bought one of the big ones, I think, the "surge", but it was too damn big for my hands. And I'm not a little guy.

    Dad gave me one of these shorly after I hit the street, and I've had it on my belt ever since. Extremely handy to have, I must have used this thing a thousand times.

    They started issuing these to deployed Soldiers. I've used mine for everything from opening a can of tuna to repairing vehicles. Out of aprx 600 Soldiers that had them I think three of them reported theirs broke. Keep in mind most were Infantry who are notorious for breaking things so that is an excellent ratio.

    called to a disturbance, during the ordeal i had what looked like some type of bodily fluid ???? on my hands. i tried to find a hose spicket to rinse off my hands and of course the one spicket i found the knob was broken. i then remembered i had a leatherman super tool on my rig, i used the plier part to turn on the spicket. tool paid for itself instantly. great product !!!!!!!!

    these are good to have for cutting fence after a car had flipped over it. You would be suprised how often you would use it if you had it on your belt.
