Leatherman celebrates 35 years with the reissue of its original multi-tool

The one that started it all.
Publish date:

After getting stuck on the road on a European trip gone awry, Tim Leatherman came up with the idea of the original Pocket Survival Tool back in 1975 to create a multi-tool that not only was built to last, but could handle a variety of jobs in a compact package. 35 years later, Leatherman is now a household name and they're paying tribute to that original design with a re-release of the PST. Limited to 500 examples, the special edition will have all the essential implements and comes in a wooden commemorative package.
