Good price, I've got the rebar oxide for work and it's been ace!

Possibly one of the most useful things I've ever bought. Heat.

Looking at the camels this has increased in price over the last couple of year, exchange rates I guess.

hard to believe these are $25

Decent price over here but not the same quality as other Leatherman's or a victorinox swiss tool.

I currently use a Gerber Suspension, how does this compare? I really like the one handed blade opening on the Gerber, but this has 'spring action' ☺

Excellent deal - heat added.
Would have loved to buy - however, the very similar Victorinox SwissTool I bought over 15 years ago is still going strong

Temping rather than lugging my Wera screwdriver set, pliers, knife etc on holiday.

Locking blade, so illegal to carry without good reason (which won't include "I might need a multitool at some point"). Doesn't come under the exemption for "folding pocket knives with a blade under 3 inches". Early Leatherman tools didn't have locking blades, so were legal, but they don't seem to do any these days, except perhaps the key-ring types.

I understand what you're saying and I know the law is the law.
So I'm not arguing the point.
But, what is the difference as to whether the blade locks or not?
Non lockable blades just don't flop shut when you cut or stab something, they remain rigid, like a locked blade.
The only way it would close, was if pressure was applied to the non cutting edge.
It just seems a strange rule.

Yup. But as you say, "the law is the law". So it's up to you if you want your collar felt at some point for carrying it outside the home and don't have a very plausible excuse for doing so.

I've a leatherman wave and it's the best tool I've ever bought. Awesome bit of kit.

I've got the Leatherman Titanium Charge and a cheaper Stanley Multitool.
If the Wave has a similar or better build compared to the Stanley tool it will be pretty good.

Yes, it's pretty stupid. The law as written just had the exemption for a "folding pocket knife". A court decided that a knife with a locking blade didn't count as a folding pocket knife, and that became case law. A safety feature now means that you can't legally carry such a device in a public place. With modern (perhaps justified) paranoia about youths carrying knives, it's very unlikely that the law will ever be changed to make more knives legal.

The Leatherman Juice range have non locking blades. I've carried my CS4 daily since 2008.

The Juice S2 has everything this has minus the file and pick but gains a smaller flat head screw driver.

Useful to know, thanks. When I eventually lose my Flair I might consider one of those.

Couldn't make my mind up between the Wingman and this one. So bought both.
