Leatherman’s hugely popular Wave+ multi-tool is on sale right now, with a $20 discount bringing the price down to $99.95 with free shipping.
The Wave+ features 18 tools and functions, and in a relatively compact package that can be carried on your belt, in your pocket, or tool bag, or stored in a junk drawer, vehicle, or cabinet.
I’m most a fan of the Wave+ one-handed locking knife blade, flattened 1/4″ hex screwdriver bit holder (additional bits and standard adapters are available), combo-style pliers jaws, and the removable wire cutting blades.
Hmm, that’s most of the tool, isn’t it.
While I have yet to have to replace the wire cutting blades on any of my multi-tools, I like to know that I can. For the tools I can’t do this with, I shy away from certain tasks, just in case a too-hard wire or nail can permanently mar them.
I bought a pocket clip for my older Wave, but never used it. The Wave+ comes with a sheath, and the newest ones are – in my opinion – much better than the older ones.
This is an extended promotion, giving you plenty of time to think it over.
Sale Price: $99.95

$99.95 is still quite a bit of money for a multi-tool, but it’s appreciable better than the regular price of $119.95.
My older-style Wave was not my first multi-tool, it was my second, after I bought and enjoyed the use of a Gerber Suspension tool (the latest model is $29 at Amazon).
This is a great all-around multi-tool, with Leatherman describing it as “an international bestseller.” I don’t regret not splurging on my Wave first, as the less expensive Gerber helped me learn what I like and don’t in a multi-tool.
Today of course, I’d go straight to the Wave+ unless I had specific needs or preferences better met by other multi-tool designs. The Leatherman Skeletool, for example, is a minimalist tool I can more comfortably clip to my pocket.
