  1. The Leatherman wave seems to have quite a lot if features. I think I would purchased it when I need tools of such. But my questions are. 

    1. How durable is this Leatherman wave? I’ve got something like this in the past and it turned out bad. 

    2. What’s the return policy?

    3. Are there discounts? 

    • Thanks for the concerns, Dhayours.

      The bad tool you had in the past certainly wasn’t a Leatherman Wave. It most likely was some cheap knockoff, and as the old saying goes, “you get what you pay for”.

      There is a 25-year Limited Warranty on this product, for normal use. 

      This is IMHO, the best multi-tool on the market. I own one and have owned many tools over the years. I know a good tool when I see it.

      There are no discounts, to my knowledge, unless perhaps, if you purchased large quantities from the parent company. This is beyond the scope of my review and something that you would have to negotiate on your own.

      I hope this helps, 


  2. Hi Paul,

I am planning to buy one of those soon and going to bookmark your page for my future reference. I like 18 multifunction tools and 25 years long time warranty feature. I am going to refer it also to others. Thanks for making wonderful review of this product.

    • Thanks, mzakapon.

      This is a quality tool, and there are many satisfied owners of this product. I know many people who own Leatherman Waves and continue to enjoy and recommend this product.

      There are over 100 reviews on Amazon of this product. One of the best “bangs” for your buck that I know of.


  3. Nice review on the leatherman waves it is so cool has a lot of features, it has 18 tools wide range of task as said and does not weight too much, instead of carrying lots of tools for just one job you get this all in one pacckage that consist of a saw, can opener , bottle opener, and so on so amazingly amazing.

    • It is an excellent and well-constructed tool, Seun. 

      A pleasure to own and a 25-year warranty, attest to its worth and value.
