This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Best price I could find for this tool. It's £85 on Amazon. No doubt it will go cold as some people wouldn't spend this much on a multitool, but you get what you pay for. Hopefully it will help someone who wants the best kit for a good price.

With the Rebar, Leatherman fans will immediately recognise the iconic box-like shape found in Tim Leatherman's original PST design. The Rebar pliers have been optimised for strength and feature replaceable wire/hard-wire cutters—a first for a four-inch tool from Leatherman. With all the features to get even the toughest jobs done, in a smaller, slimmer size, the Rebar is sure to be an instant hit on job sites and home projects the world over.

Good price but I wouldn't bother without having a replaceable driver bit
Is this legal to carry in the UK?

You certain it's not replaceable? There is a 25 year warranty after all.

If you have a legitimate reason and don't threaten people with it,then Yes.

Should have handed it in too police. Potentially could be reunited with its owner using the serial number. If it is unclaimed, you would get it back.
Was 50 quid on amazon for this model for a while last couple months ago
I've had a leatherman wave for 11 years or so and it's still used frequently and is as good as new.

Dropped it in a hole of postcrete the other week and it washed out just fine.

I would find it hard to recommend another multi-tool after Leatherman, given how well they are put together.

I'm sure plenty will have bad experiences but I'm no tradesman etc!

Picked a decent LIDL branded one for £4.99 and I had a leatherman in the past. Pretty impressed with the LIDL one
There are very few brand I feel deserve loyalty these days, but Leatherman is one. The tools will last a lifetime, and probably more, and customer service is exceptional.

I've never ever considered that it might be an offence to carry my knife in my backpack, it's almost always in there.
Terrific quality & longevity. Rock-solid guarantee. Bought my original Leatherman in 1991 & used it most days for 27 years before the wire cutter blades finally wore out in 2018. Every other blade/attachment was worn but still fully serviceable. A trusted old tool that never let me down in all those years. Contacted them on a whim, was asked to return my tool & by return I got sent a brand new replacement rebar for no cost (it was a lifetime guarantee when bought in 1991). Very few manufacturers stand being their products & honour their guarantees like this. My new one has replaceable wire blades, so can see this thing long outlasting me.
These are good, but the new leathermans are something else, well worth the extra money IMO. I grabbed one in the states last time I was other and the P series magnetic close is just brilliant.

All the cheaper ones are okay, the construction of them is sufficiently over spec for most jobs it's not an issue, especially for pliers. The main issue though is the metal in them is only one step above pot steel, it's fine for small tasks, but the blades won't hold a good edge because the heat treat is rubbish, and the screwdrivers have the hardness of an old cheddar. They're good for having for jobs where you always have an alternative and just need something to be lazy with or something to use around a campsite. They aren't great for using as an actual tool where it failing will be a problem and you are genuinely relying on it.
Had a leatherman for years, take it sea fishing which is probably as harsh an environment as you’ll get and it’s like new still. Bargain heat added.

Not necessarily true. Perhaps you might want to try a Ganzo.

Ganzo specialises in knives, all their knives are at least 440C steel, so are all their multitools, which are c£10 and up IIRC.

Ganzo's top of the line multitool is the G302 - G302H in silver and G302B in black. There are numerous reviews of Ganzo products on Youtube, think all the ones I have seen are wildly positive. An example for the G302 is youtube.com/wat…GA8

Most consider 440C not worse, perhaps a little bit better than the 420HC steel used by the c£170 Leatherman P4, If you look, you will find Rockewell hardness and edge retention tests done on Ganzo products on Youtube. They are never less than impressive. The days of cheap Chinese knives/tools always having lousy heat treating are long gone.

Price? Just over £30 from Aliexpress for the G302, obviously worth looking for a store that can ship from Europe to escape the Royal Mail handling fee for over £15 items, if possible.

I also own a Ganzo knife in D2 and carbon fibre, the build quality and fit and finish just have to be seen to believe, all for the princely sum of £22,
All adult men should own a Leatherman. It’s my best gadget.

440C isn't the worlds best knife steel to be fair, it got popular, but has gone out of fashion for non disposable knives as heat treated very well it's actually too hard. It's a good choice for Chinese manufacturers because it is a really common steel grade in china and good for pretty much any tool.

420HC has some benefits over 440C as it isn't always about hardness, hardness in and of itself isn't necessarily the best thing in knife steel. Chinese companies use 440C now as with a cheap mediocre heat treat you can get 440C to a good standard. Compared to 420HC which you need to be REALLY good with your heat treat to get it good, but actually comes out better as 440C is actually too hard as with a top notch heat treat it is bloody hard to sharpen. 420HC actually has better corrosion resistance as well, which is why it is good for tools in the main over 440 beyond just sharpening as while 440C doesn't stain as much it doesn't tolerate salt water so well which is something you want in a multitool.

That being said I wasn't really talking about the same knives you are talking about, you could always get a decent knife for that kind of price, they're just more expensive these days because fewer people make them. But most of them are made in China anyway these days even leathermans, of the big brands only Mora and Victorinox still do some European manufacturing. What I was mostly talking about though was cheap cheap, like the 5 and 10 quid tools you can get, just the manufacturing costs mean the material in those is always going to be crap as the better the metal the more it costs to manufacture.

They're ASSEMBLED in America, as far as I'm aware from discussions in various places most of the things that as noted in the article were overseas parts(in 2006) are now made increasingly in China instead including the knife blades. Gerber is the same, even the made in USA ones have all the metalwork coming from China. Not that I mind, I've got a Chinese Gerber knife, it's a near 100% of the old SOG knife and the only downside is that it's Bear Grylls branded, but its a nice utility knife that I don't care about as much because it was way cheaper than buying a vintage SOG made in the USA.

From the article “The lawsuit ended favorably for Leatherman, as federal courts ruled that since 83% of their components (the base requirement is 70%) are American sourced, they qualify as “made in the USA.”

The lawsuit was 2006. To qualify it has to be US sourced, that means a lot of things. For a subcomponent that can mean it doesnt have to be from the US, it itself can be largely foreign made as it isn't a weight thing. So for example you buy your steel from china, have it stamped out in china, then heat treated and ground in Kentucky say. guess where the component is now from.
