The Leatherman One-Handed Multi-Tool Features Blades and Pliers

— September 16, 2012 — Unique
The Leatherman One-Handed Multi-Tool is the first of its kind. Before this useful gadget was born, handymen were forced to choose between pliers or blades when considering one-handed tools. The Leatherman One-Handed Multi-Tool is the first to offer both blades and pliers in the same device.

The multi-tool features spring-loaded pliers, wire cutters, screw drivers, wrenches, bottle openers and knives among other tools. Each tool is imprinted with a picture of the tool so that one can easily identify just the right one for the job. This gadget also looks good. The militaristic, heavy duty design makes it look like it could belong on an episode of Star Gate.
