I'll need more than 20% off to afford their stuff
Are they really worth the price premium over Swiss?

If you can get them discounted they're great value as they're virtually bulletproof. I picked mine up years ago in Costco for about half the RRP.
Not only bullet proof but they're great if you ever need to use their guarantee. I had a cheap little multitool that the nail file started to rust on and they replaced it no questions asked.

Their guarantee and service is excellent.
I've had to return 2 multitools one with a material fault and one with misuse and one was replaced and the other repaired free of charge within a week.

Yes definitely.

I bought a Charge TTI about 8 years ago for £190 with extra Bits and extended bit holder.

Used and abused it for about 5 years everyday and truly stood the test of time. A lot of my colleagues had Swiss/Gerber and they all admitted the Leatherman was better however you have to justify the price.

Due to job role change I don't really use it anymore but definitely was worth if for the 5 years I used it.
Has anyone got the link for sending for repair?
I've had my Wave for about 15 years now and it's gone a bit loose and I've snapped the tip off the main blade. TIA.

I've had mine 16yrs. Still in great condition.
Leathermans are excellent but most of them don’t suit the UK’s knife laws.
Broke mine, my own fault. Leatherman replaced it totally free even though it was 8 years old

YES.
Everything I've checked is cheaper on Amazon even with the code.

Leatherman are not stirctiy correct in their statement.....looks like their spinning the legislation slightly to suit their needs!

A blade is illegal to carry (unless you need it for work or cultural reason) if it is over 7.62cm in length OR it locks in place (as most lethermans blades lock in place, they are illegal to carry irrespective of size). A multitool where the blade is shorter than 7.62cm and is NOT locked in place is legal to carry in the UK (like some Gerbers!).... Presumably why Leatherman are being a bit naughty with their blurb....

I see.. Link please :/
TBH these days I had assumed that carrying any bladed object, even within the law is not worth it.

Whatever the rules are, you only have to come into contact with a copper who doesn’t know/follow the exact rules and is in an arsey mood to massively spoil your day.

Are you refering to this extract... It’s illegal to:

  • sell a knife to anyone under 18, unless it has a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less
  • carry a knife in public without good reason, unless it has a folding blade with a cutting edge 3 inches long or less
  • carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife
  • use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife)

You've missed off the relevant section regarding 'locking' knives.... (which is where most people get caught out)...ANY knife that locks open is illegal to carry

Lock knives
Lock knives are not classed as folding knives and are illegal to carry in public without good reason. Lock knives:

have blades that can be locked and refolded only by pressing a button

can include multi-tool knives - tools that also contain other devices such as a screwdriver or can opener

If you don't mind me saying that's a pretty cynical comment.

The law is fantastically clear and easy to understand.

It is yes. But then I have experience of photography in London. Better nowadays but was very common to be told incorrect things. You can’t argue with a police officer. Well you can but it’s not fun even if you are in the right..

Yep, they're illegal (apart from my tiny Micro! and a few others).

There are very few decent knives or tools that are legal to carry (probably for good reason!). If you Google 'EDC uk knife' there a few sites which outline the options...
I give up... There's no arguing with stupid.

Blimey, photography in London sounds tough!

I know what you mean though - I just have experience that if a PC is taking a knife off someone it's usually for good reason!! If you're being a prat with a watermelon, you'll have that taken off you as well!
Fwiw, I have found that Gerber blades are much higher quality than the Leathermans that I've owned...

Not sure what bit I’ve to carefully read. I’m aware that you’re allowed a locking blade for a occupation or hobby that would justify needing a locking blade. That excuse won’t work if you forget you have it in your pocket after work.

If it’s not the police it’s over zealous security guards who think they have jurisdiction outside of their property.

Aside, I used to have a small non-locking knife on my keys, ~4cm blade. I was doing jury service and put my keys in the tray before going through the scanner and was politely asked by security bod to remove the knife for the next day onwards. And that was 20 years ago..!
I've had my Wave for most of my adult life. It's an incredible tool. I've sent it in once when the scissors broke through me abusing it, and they replaced the scissors happily.

Their returns policy is incredible and the main reason I will never buy any other brand.

"HOW DOES THE LEATHERMAN WARRANTY WORK?

Our warranty is simple. You broke it, we'll fix it. Just go to the Warranty page and download a Warranty Returns Form. Complete, date and sign the form and put it and your tool (NO SHEATHS PLEASE) in the mail to us and we'll replace your tool and send it back to you for free."
Had mine for over 25 years and still going strong. Had a couple of blades replaced under their lifetime warranty.

Incorrect. A locking knife is not illegal, it is illegal to carry in a public place if you haven't got a good reason to be doing so. As in you need it for work purposes or you're going camping etc.

In saying that I have carried locking penknives in my pocket for 15 years or more, without a legally good reason for doing so, and I've never had an issue.

You have to be searched first for it to be found...

Yes. I've had mine for years. Something broke about 5 years ago they replaced the whole thing free of charge.

Buy cheap buy twice.
