Leatherman continues to upgrade one of the most trustworthy multi-tools in the world. The Wave Plus features 18 different tools, most of which are utilitarian classics, but adds replaceable, durable wire cutters to the collection. Additionally, the tool features needlenose pliers, regular pliers, an electrical crimper, wire stripper, a regular and a serrated knife, a saw, and spring-action scissors. A small and large bit driver is also included, along with an 8-inch ruler, bottle and can openers, diamond-coated and wood/metal files, and a small and large bit driver. Every feature can be opened with one hand and quite a few of the tools are outside-accessible so you can use them when the multi-tool is folded and closed. The Wave Plus is available in all black with a black nylon Molle carrying sheath so it's ready at a moment's notice.
