I have to admit — I’m not a big fan of “New Wave” music. There’s something so 80’s about it, I’d just soon leave it behind.
What’s that? This is a Leatherman New Wave? Oh, that I can get behind!
Leatherman, of course, makes great quality multi-tools, and the original Wave was one of their most popular. The New Wave updates the Wave to make it even better so it’s bound to be a hit.
The New Wave features a redesigned, stronger pliers that was one of the Wave’s weaknesses. It also features locking tools and an optional multi-bit accessory kit that is a much-needed addition.
What they didn’t change was the set of tools — it features four blades that can be accessed without opening the tool. These are two knives, a saw and a file.
The interior tools are a scissors, two pliers, two wire cutters, another file, several screwdrivers, a bottle and can opener, a wire stripper and a ruler.
Also included is a nylon sheath.
This is one of Leatherman’s full-sized tools so if you’re looking for something extremely compact, this might not be your choice.
And if you’re looking for A Flock of Seagulls or some such other “New Wave” nonsense, look elsewhere.
