    And a wonderfully designed tool at it.

    Comprising of Injected Stainless-Steel links, each link makes up for 1-2 tools/functions. They link together to form a bracelet that can be worn easily on the wrist. Somewhat like a chain bracelet we used to wear as kids (at least I did :D )

    This a shot of the black finish LeatherMan Tread. The idea was conceived by the president of the company, who wanted the ability to carry his multi tool, without having to leave it behind for security during check.

    The LeatherMan Tread is TSA permissible, which essentially makes it permissible pretty much anywhere.

    The design and the structure do give it jewelery like appearance, but the high strength and corrosion resistant 17-4 steel ensure that it works as good as any other LeatherMan tools.

    Tools include, varying sizes of Flat and Philips screw driver, bottle opener, #2 square drive, box hook, cutting hook, hex drives and a carbide glass breaker.

    But, wait. It gets interesting. While the LeatherMan Tread will be available in April or May, they are coming out with LeatherMan tread QM1, which adds a watch to the fray -

    Pricing for the Leatherman Tread would be 150$ for the Stainless Steel Model, 200$ for the Black DLC (Diamond like Carbon) finish model.

    The watch would be around 500$ for the SS model and 600 for the Black DLC model.

    Take that Apple Watch.

    Like I said, this is TSA permissible. No stoppage on carrying on a flight.

    You cannot carry a Swiss knife on a Flight. Only in your check-in luggage.

    Oh, and this does not have to be dismantled for usage, you can fold the links and access the tool desired.
