Leatherman Bond
Mixed feelings - not impressed by the new bond. Read more in comments.
I don’t want to bash leatherman at all but I am really disappointed by the quality of the tool, especially comparing it to Victorinox tools (even if the spirit costs about 50$ more). I will stay with my Swisstool and sadly need to carry it on my belt - really was looking forward using the pocketclip of the bond.

Leatherman Bond
Dangerous blade issue

I’d highly recommend it to anyone if it weren’t for the blade issue. As has been stated elsewhere, the knife blade easily comes lo...

Price/value Ratio

Leatherman Bond
Actually Dangerous
I have several Leatherman multi tools. I love them. Leatherman, however, has never been good with listening to customer feedback. I hope the response to this ABSOLUTELY AWEFUL product will change that misguided mentality. How this product passed the safety testing is beyond me. This tool is actually...
