Franck offered me this Leatherman as a gift before I left Bayonne. I was really happy because 2 years ago I lost my Switzerland Knife with plenty of functions (25 to be exact) because one pocket of my backpack was open during a trekking…
After 2 months of intensive use, here is my feedback:
First of all there are real pliers! I was able to repair my bike in many occasions thanks to these one or to sew in leather by holding the needle inside the pliers. It’s the main weakness on a Switzerland knife with pliers which are too small and too thick at the end. But at least these present on the Switzerland knife can cut a cable or a plastic zip tie properly!
However the knife is not long enough and I’ve never used one of the screwdrivers in the handles. However the can opener/bottle opener is good and sometime, I use the regular.
Meanwhile a Leatherman is not really for campers but for workers.
In my opinion, the perfect one for camping will have:
- A longer knife (1-1.5 cm more)
- A wood saw ( at least 8 cm length) and scissors to replace the screwdrivers
- A cork screw
Free for me
Pliers don’t’ sharp enough
Knife too short
No wood saw, scissors and cork screw
