Has been on at this price before, but thought I would post it again.

Not legal to carry every day as the blade locks, but still a great tool to use around the house or workshop.

nice find

leatherman is the BEST!
I have the Wave, broke the pliers after three years, sent for repair in UK, got a new one free of charge, new questions asked.
you don't know how u need it, until u'll forget it from the car!

Anyone recommend a similar Leathermen tool that's legal? Looks usefull, cheers.

theres one on the market, which u can carry on planes, just like the Wave version without the knife... its called plane leatherman, or sth, ask the google!!!:whistling:

Wow, didn't realise that the simple lock function made it illegal to carry in public places.
lawgazette.co.uk/opi…ion
Can't believe they don't mention that crucial rule on the directgov website.

Great price, but I like my ]Gerber MP800 better. It has proper pliers and cable cutters, also the Leatherman's tool/bit adaptor is a much better design.

Have had mine for ~ 5years, replaced once when the scissors broke. :thumbsup:

As mentioned locking blades must only be carried by people using them to carry out their professional duties (ie: electrician etc) and must not be carried in a manner where they are too easily accessible (ie: jacket/jeans pocket is not allowed, they must be securely stored in the tool box when not used).

a bit stupid if you ask me (not pointed at the original poster) , a knifes a knife at the end of the day, all this talk about knife bans etc etc aint never gonna work, its the root problems that cause it....................

Agreed, banning knifes doesn't root out the problem. It does however greatly reduce the risk of getting stabbed, IMO.

good price and bought yay

heated up!

can anybody find that bit kit (screw heads e.t.c) any cheaper than amazons £18?

I've got a Leatherman Micra permanently on my pocket key ring and it's without a doubt the most useful thing i've ever bought for the money. The scissors are very useful. I got a mint condition one off a well known auction site for a fiver.

I just have to be careful to remember to leave it at home next time I go through somewhere like Birmingham airport. Had to post the thing back home to myself.:whistling:

Here's a Micra...

Thats an ignorant comment.

Its a safety issue. If i had a pound for all the stories ive head from people about them slipping and the blade closing on their hand or something similar when using a standard swiss army knife i would be a rich man.

a locking blade is a safety feature.

Many Casualty departments would argue otherwise! A locking blade is essential if you're using this for DIY tasks, otherwise it's an accident waiting to happen.

Not really as the people who carry knives with the intention to use as a weapon are the ones who are going to carry them anyway, regardless of what any possible ban might say.

Yuh... just about proav.co.uk/Lig…spx
postage is more but give them a call and they can send out via post instead.

voted hot for great price, but be aware the first image is not the correct one, this version does not have a ridged blade, that is on the cx version, this will have a smooth blade as swown in all the other images, so not ideal for cutting rope but will still get the job done eventually

Good point.

Image changed.

will the postman be committing an offence by delivering it?

no wonder they are striking!

They have a job that basically consists of being able to walk and read yet expect something other than rubbish pay and conditions.

Rubbish pay and conditions go hand in hand with unskilled jobs.

You obviously haven'y got a clue and would be welcomed into Royal Mail Management tomorrow.

Whilst I don't agree with the current strikes, I have done a Summer working for them and walking round a notorious estate with semi-wild dogs snapping at your heals in the p***ing rain is no easy life. Those actually delivering, deserve every penny they get and more.

I agree, it's not a job I would want to do. Fortunately I'm qualified to do more than walking and reading and as such my job isn't so unplesant.

Agreed - I was using a cheap Rolson alternative and very nearly sliced through my hand because of the non-locking blade. Only thing that stopped me from getting cut up like butter was the fact that I was wearing a glove, which I don't always. I bought a leatherman the next day.

That is a great price btw, highly recommended for anyone who gets their hand dirty on a regular basis.

I am also more qualified to do more than walking and reading and work as a postman. I CHOSE to drop out of what is basically, the rat race. Being a postman requires a lot more than manual dexterity, it draws on many different aspects of your being and is by far one of, if not the most difficult, as in physically demanding jobs, I have ever done. The strikes you read and hear about go far deeper than the public know so I won't even attempt to explain it. People with degrees' people that have very high paying jobs have chosen the outdoor life in preference to the jobs laughingly looked upon as GOOD jobs. I have never met such a bunchof people with such a wealth of intellect, humour and dedication in any field in my life.

I went to our local post office last Wednesday to post something and it was closed half day. Went to another and same thing. Then went to another and that was totally closed down. They even make it actaully hard to post anything and then with strikes it's hard to get it delivered too.

It's what you get with a complete monopoly and lack of competition.

That is partly why the workers are striking, post office closures, followed by delivery office closures closely followed by workers being laid off...........as cheaply as possible. RM are introducing part time contracts only and want rid of the full timers.

Best of luck, but it's really the customers of the Royal Mail that are suffering the most and not the government. For every bit of industrial action taken there's a significant amount of public sympathy lost and not to mention large business contracts.

One thing you've got to accept is living in the real world. At my wife's place there's been loads of redundancies. She considers herself lucky to still be there even after a pay cut and at my place there's been no pay increases this year. It's called the current economic climate and having to modernise in order to adapt to market conditions and consumer demands. No one has a job for life any more where they think they can just plod on until they retire immune to a world of ever changing market forces.

Agree with you, my hours have been cut from 40 to 25, big drop in pay. The strikes aren't about money but about imposed change, working unpaid overtime, bullying and harassment from managers if you don't complete unrealistic targets. This no longer affects me but for the full timers left it is hell. RM not willing to negotiateas they know if it comes to that the game will be up. The BBC recently had a document stating that were going to push through changes regardless of CWU input.

Cracking deal.
I have one of these and i use it at work.
I payed twice this price 6months ago.
I thought that they just a gimmick,but it is very useful.Saves time looking for tools or a knife when you are in a hurry.
Heat from me.

I understand what you are saying but for the jobs that you would require a Leatherman, I don't think a locking blade is needed...
A Leatherman is to assist in minor jobs not daily DIY....

Regarding the law.. locking blades have been illegal a long , long time under "pointed or bladed article" Section 139 Criminal justice act . It's 1987 i believe.

This law is necessary with the current knife culture... anyone responsible would not need to carry this irresponsibly, placing it in a tool box in a boot would show this, and law is subject to reasonable excuse and lawful authority.
