Handle

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.

Last Bushcraft knife I'll Need
First impression taking it out of the box is how small it feels. Its actually alittle longer than my tops black rhino but im so used to a heavier blade. The handle is pretty slim but you get used to it fast or atleast i did. Choking up the grip you can really do more detailed carving. It excels at c...

Durability

Leatherman Bond
Its everything you would expect from a leatherman.
This tool is as good as it gets. I use it at work, at home, while hunting and fishing.

Great blade for the outdoorsman and military folks
This is definitely a TOP shelf knife, pun fully intended. I've taken this thing out with me on all sorts of backpacking and winter camping trips as well as a main knife in the field for the Marines. This knife just keeps taking it. Its the perfect size for fine tasks and even larger tasks. Been a BK...

Blade

Leatherman Bond
Dangerous blade issue
Great tool…almost. For the most part this model is very reminiscent of the original PST, a great compact multitool that’s fairly lightweight and easy to carry in pocket. 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...

Weight

Leatherman Bond
Terrific tool! I recommend it!
I really like this smaller and lighter Bond model! It fits my hand well, especially using the pliers. The tools, including the knife, snap into place well. Personally, I like the fact that there is no locking mechanism on this model. As far as a safety issue with the knife blade goes, it’s no differ...

Beautiful piece of work
I do a lot stuff with knives. Bush craft, hunting, trapping, fishing, and everyday carry. O would feel naked with out one. And honestly this is by far my favorite. The size and weight are very nice. I have bigger hands and this knife fits them perfectly. It comes razor sharp from the factory. The sh...
