Leatherman wins hands down, for introducing the “FREE” line of engraved tools. The coolest feature of these tools is the way you open and close each element. You don’t have to use your finger nails! You just use your finger pads. The secret is subtle. It involves magnets strategically placed in the tool to keep the elements closed. There are 2 models of knives (available in silver or black),

5 Steps to Finding the Perfect Engraved Leatherman Tools

If your boss has given you the task to find the perfect engraved Leatherman tools for the shop’s safety program, where do you start? These 5 steps will help you:

  1. Ask the employees if they would like the full size tool (about 4″ closed), or one of the pocket sized tools (about 2 1/2″ closed).
  2. Are scissors necessary? Some of the tools have them. Some don’t.
  3. Are knife blades necessary? If blades are not wanted, Leatherman has a tool for you.
  4. Are pliers necessary? Some of the tools eliminate the pliers, to make more room for other tools.
  5. Are carrying pouches needed? Some of the Leatherman tools come with leather pouches, and some with nylon pouches. And the mini tools don’t need any pouches at all.

These tips should help you get started on your project. If you have more questions, you can contact an online distributor of knives and tools.

How To Buy Engraved Leatherman Tools For Your Corporation

Do you need engraved Leatherman tools for a promotion for your company? Here are a few guidelines to make your promotion a success.

  • Get an eps file for your logo. The engraver will need this, for a neat imprint.
  • Get an accurate count of how many tools you will need, then add a few, in case more recipients pop up later.
  • Don’t wait till the last minute. Production time can be 7-10 business days after you approve a proof. Rush production is sometimes available.
  • Find the best Leatherman engraver online. Get one that responds quickly to your emails or phone calls. Also, find a website that is neat and easy to navigate and order from.
  • Place your order, and pay by credit card. Most people do it this way because of the convenience, safety, and protection from a bad merchant.
  • Make plans on how you will distribute the Leatherman tools. Possibly design a flyer or email to announce your promotion.
  • When they arrive, pass out your engraved Leatherman tools in person or at a meeting or party designed around your promotion.
  • Your workforce will be so happy that you came up with this wonderful idea.

My 2 Favorite Engraved Leatherman Tools

A big one, and a little one (for every day carry) are my favorite engraved Leatherman tools.

  • The big one is the Wingman(TM) for these reasons. It is a full 4″ when closed, which makes it a tough multi-tool. It’s USA-made from stainless steel. The most Leatherman Wingmanused elements on it are the knife, spring-loaded pliers, wire cutter, screw drivers, spring loaded scissors, and the amazing blister pack opener. Several other features make this device a convenient toolbox in your pocket. It has everything that I need in a multi-tool. That’s why I keep one in every vehicle, my boat, workshop, and office.
  • The little one is the Squirt PS4 Leatherman® multi-tool. Scissors,

    nailfile, and the extremely sharp knife are the features I appreciate most. Of course, it has 2 screw drivers and a wire cutter. The small 2 1/4″ length make this gem easy to carry in your pocket. There is even a ring so you can put it on your keychain.
