Material

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.

Zero Tolerance 0350TS
Excellent Purcahse
Bought the knife on sale after doing some research on it and it is my favorite knife.
I like the S30V steel, it came sharp (could be sharper, but I'm not complaining) and the steel holds a solid edge.
Also - it's made in America - so that's a plus.

Zero Tolerance 0350TS
You get what you pay for... In this case it's worth every penny.
This is my knife. I use it everyday. From cutting open packages, prying nails out of the floor, chiseling out piece of old floor with a hammer (not recommended by the company nor me) ZT knocked it out of the park with this knife. It feels great in the hand. The G10 handles really absorb impact as we...

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.

Zero Tolerance 0350TS
Perfect EDC?
I've had this knife for a couple years now, and only just realized I never wrote a review, just gave it the quick and easy 5 star it deserves and moved on. However after adding a beautiful 0300bw to my collection and going to write a review for it I noticed I had not. Now not that you are all waitin...

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...

Zero Tolerance 0350TS
The Pocket Beast!
Wow! That really is all that needs to be said. The ZT 350TS is crazy sharp out of the box! It's beefy, weighty, and ergonomically comfortable in the hand, and the blade deploys with authority. The G10 handle has the perfect texturing. It's not a super deep carry but does carry pretty well in the poc...

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...

I love the weight and balance of this knife along with the blade profile. Super sharp and easy to maintain a firm grip on.
