Over the last few years the amount of completely new design multi- tools we’ve seen released has been relatively few. Arguably the main reason is due to the major companies who manufacture these types of tool by and large having already got all the bases covered. What we are seeing though is more established models of multi-tool being treated with a military style Black Oxide coating and re-launched in this new finish. This treatment enables them to be easier to clean and gives the tool an anti-glare finish that hunters often require and appreciate.
Manufactured from Stainless Steel the Leatherman Surge is a butterfly opener measuring 41⁄2-inches in the closed position and 7-inches with the needlenose plier heads deployed. Other tools include regular pliers, wire cutters, stranded wire cutters, hard wire cutters, crimper and wire stripper.
Closing the tool back up allows you to access the tools stored in the handles. These are a 3-inch clip point knife, 3 1/8-inch serrated edge knife, 21⁄2-inch wood saw, scissors, large bit driver, small bit driver, awl with thread loop and a lanyard ring.
All tools are easily deployed using enlarged thumbholes or lugs and lock out securely with a very strong lock liner (frame lock) mechanism. It comes with a nylon carry pouch and a lifetime warranty.
The Leatherman Surge® Black Oxide model is priced at £134.95.
