Got the Leatherman Wave model for a friend. In Black! Two actually. I used a similar tool during my Leh trip. And I can say one thing. I had that baby on my belt for the whole trip, and I cannot stress enough, how useful it proved during the trip. From stripping wires, to adjusting nuts, to cutting ropes and what not. This is one piece of hardware that I suggest everyone keen on traveling or one who is a D-I-Y kinda guy should have. The contents The Tool, unraveled. The black does make for a darker more striking appeal, however i prefer the old chrome finish to this one. The first set of tools are the Nose Plier at the top, the Regular Plier grip in the middle, then the Wire Cutter and finally the Wire Stripper. Kinda reminds me of Transformers every time I take the tools out. On the Right we have. Large Flat Screw driver then the Small Bit Driver (This is reversible with a Philips bit on the other side, very useful for extremely small screws) and the Scissors. On the left we have the Wire stripper (The V-Notch)and the much needed Bottle Opener The Large Bit Driver is also reversible, with a Philips and Flat head for medium sized screws. Taking out the Biggies. Now these are really really sharp blades. Please exercise extreme caution and under adult supervision only. The release locks are visible in the pictures to release the blades and to stow them. Ensure that you press them and do not force the blades open or close. This is the Wood/Metal File. The wood side is visible, the metal side is on the other side. This is the Wood Saw. Extremely sharp serrations. Works great on Cardboard, ropes, plastic bottles etc etc. All the blades in their glory. The one on the Right is a Serrated Knife, Good for bone cutting or carving up an animal. The one on the left is a Regular Knife. All these blades/tools get locked into position, so chances of bending, getting stowed again, or accidentally slipping are not there. You can see the flash gleam off the blade. Avoid having more than one blade out at any time. The tool sheet with each Leatherman. The Belt-Holster Fabric cover/holder for the Multi-Tool The tool inside. Precautions - Always remember the following - - Leatherman is not a one tool solution to everything. This is a quick fix, supplemental aid. - Though the tools are built extremely well, and are very very strong, prolonged use will wear them out. So use them wisely. - They are designed to take a reasonable amount of force. So do not use them for any other application rather than the intended one. If you plan to use your Leatherman as a hammer or as a crow bar, or use the flat screw driver as a chisel, you can say good bye to it. - With proper maintenance and cleaning, these tools are designed to last well. So do remember to spray a lil WD-40 now and then to keep it moisture free and well lubricated. - Do not attempt to dismantle. - The blades are really really sharp. I have cut my fingers on numerous occasions even after being extra careful. Do not let your kids play with this. - This is extremely handy for a speedy repair, or when you do not have time to pull out your entire tool-kit.
