Leatherman: Man or Marketing?
Although it sounds like the most manly name a marketing exec could conceive of, Leatherman was actually named for founder Tim Leatherman. It was on a road trip that Tim discovered the scout knife he was using everything for really needed to be a pliers-based multi-tool. He started designing, and - after years of prototyping and perfecting - the Leatherman was born.
It's a Must-have for Many!
Today, it's rare to find a do-it-yourselfer who doesn't carry a multi-tool wherever he or she goes. Taking it along becomes as second-nature as grabbing your keys and wallet in the morning.
