The vast majority of us humans are pretty average- there, I said it. Not many of us have out-of-the-ordinary skills, or can qualify for the Olympics, or are in the Guinness Book of World Records. 
But what would you say if I found the trick to make you feel super-human?
Engraved Leatherman tools are the secret to feeling like a ninja. All you need to do is pull one of your pocket and show off all the different things it can do.
Need to cut a string? Done. Need to open a bottle? Done. Need to loosen a screw? Done.

Engraved Leatherman Tools and Inventory

Inventory across the world has been a big problem for the last 12 months. The items mostly affected are products from China. Fortunately, engraved Leatherman tools are made in the United States, in Oregon. So, the supply chain problems have been minimal for them.

The other widespread problem has been the labor shortage. I don’t know if Leatherman has been affected by that. According to the Leatherman careers web page, they are looking for job applicants at this time.

We currently have enough inventory of the most popular Leatherman tools. So if you order some, you will likely be in luck.

Supply Chain Issues Have Little Effect on Engraved Leatherman Tools

Great news! Engraved Leatherman Tools aren’t imported from China. They are made in the USA. Some parts are made overseas, but the final assembly is always done in Oregon at the Leatherman factory.

The recent supply chain problems that affect many products are a result of the Covid lockdowns in China. This week, the Advertising Specialy Institute (ASI) reported that “Suppliers say lockdowns in Shanghai and other areas of China are likely to delay restocking of promo products in North America.” The lockdown has created a huge pile-up of cargo ships near the Port of Shanghai. These ships are either waiting to get loaded or unloaded. How long will this last? It depends on the lockdown, and how the Chinese government handles the issue. Fortunately, Leatherman is in pretty good shape at the moment. Many other suppliers like SanMar (according to ASI) have anticipated this problem, and have stocked up on inventory, to above average levels. Other promotional product suppliers that saw this lockdown coming, also are probably prepared to meet customer demand this year.

Does anyone have too many tools? Probably not. There’s a special tool for every job. If not, you can make one out of an existing tool, like bending a wrench to fit in a tight place on your car engine. Some guys like to buy tools that they don’t need right now, but think they would be good ones to have around just in case. That’s what I do. The best tools to “have around just in case” are Leatherman engraved tools. They can do a dozen different things, and come in a small package. They can take the place of a dozen specialty tools, so your toolbox won’t be so heavy.

Engraved Leatherman Tools were developed in the mind of Tim Leatherman in the 1970’s. That was way after the age of the caveman. But today’s Leatherman tools look a lot neater and professional than the original prototypes that Tim made in the late 70’s. He made the initial models in his garage, using the equipment and material that he was able to get at the time. Today his company is growing at a fast rate. His products are in demand around the world, only 40 years after they were first developed. Here are some examples of Tim’s first prototypes, which are on display in the front office of his Portland Oregon factory….
