    Ooo. It's got the proper solid Philips screwdriver, rather than the changeable bit one. I much prefer the solid one. If I didn't already have more multitools than hands, then of be tempted.

    Edit* I just realised, even more importantly, it has a small flat blade driver, suitably sized for electrical screws. I use that on my old Leatherman all the time, but the new one doesn't have a flat blade that is narrow enough. (edited)

    Although Leatherman themselves have stated this is UK legal carry, there isn't consensus amongst law experts as to whether this style of tool where the knife is inaccessible when folded is deemed non-locking (and thus legal carry). If you open the handles to open the knife and then close them to use the knife, you can't put the knife back into the folded state with simple pressure on the back of the blade; it fouls on the other half of the handle. The principle used in law to determine whether something is a locking knife is whether pressure on the back of the blade without other mechanism is all that is required to put the knife into a folded state.
    If the knife had been made to open whilst the handles were shut, it would have avoided this potential problem, and also be handier for quick access to the knife.

    If that is the sense Leatherman meant it, it is very misleading; "UK legal carry" almost always means "excempt from UK knife legislation", as *any* bladed article which is not illegal to possess (like a butterfly knife or zombie killer) may be carried legally in public with a good reason. I rather think as they explicitly mentioned the fact that the blade is 2.9" long that they intended this to be excempt from the knife regs,and they probably reckoned that "non-locking" within the regulations meant it was sufficient not have a liner lock like many of their other tools. There is disagreement amongst legal experts as to whether this knife is excempt for reasons in my original post. That isn't to say this is definitely subject to knife regs(and thus requires good reason to carry), it's to say that there isn't a firm consensus and this particular issue (whether a blade which doesn't lock in the intended usage position, but not can it fully fold away without opening the handles first is deemed locking) hasn't been tested by case law.

    Something like a typical Swiss army knife folds away with only pressure on the back of the blade(and has a blade of less than 3"), thus is termed "UK legal carry" as it is excempt from the knife regulations and thus may be carried in public without good reason.

    Leatherman market themselves as the highest quality, but I think other brands make better. With a previous Leatherman I owned one of the small flat screw drivers snapped on first use and shortly after that rust appeared on various other parts. Thankful for the warranty, but be aware

    agree. i have a Leatherman Wave and a Victorinox Spirit. the Victorinox is noticeably better quality and nicer to use.

    Legal issues aside, Leatherman are great, but this is not the one you should buy. Everyone have their own needs, granted, but if your looking at this, then wait for a rare deal on a wave.

    How can you put legal issues aside? If you intend to walk around with it in your pocket (or in your car) then this one is legal to do so, a Leatherman wave is not legal to carry in the UK without specific good reason at the time of carrying it. That’s the whole point of this tool, to give a UK compliant offering.

    And the way the streets are now, the safest carry would be a samurai... Joking aside... Knives don't save you from other knives

    Can't say I'm too up on the latest Leathermans but I bought a Leatherman Wave back in the early 2000s and had occasion to use it recently for a short notice job. No rust, everything opened just fine. Almost like new. Stuck it in my pocket and forgot I had it on me for a week. I'd quite like to get to the bottom of whether I was a fugitive from justice for that week.

    "Leaving a knife in the car, or in your pocket for when you will next need it, or forgetting that it is there, is NOT a defence."

    "There is an exemption in law for folding pocket knives. These must have cutting edges of less than three inches and do not lock. Due to a court case it was ruled that a folding pocket knife “must be foldable at all times”. Due to this ruling, a folding safety locking blade is treated as if it is not folding , but is fixed. The blade length is therefore irrelevant."

    Great deal for a great tool. Can’t go wrong with this IMO. There is no better Leatherman for UK carry.
