After launching its first-ever product in 1983 — a type of pliers that were enthusiastically well-received — Leatherman has risen to become a well-known player in the tool arena. In fact, the clever multi-tool with pliers that was the brand’s first attempt to enter the market was so successful that the Leatherman brand quickly won over the DIYers everywhere, which is not that easy to do. Now, the brand is set to launch a product that pays homage to its first product release so many decades ago. The Leatherman Bond is a lighter-weight, low-profile version of its granddaddy’s original, the Leatherman PST.
Weighing in at only 5.9 ounces, the Leatherman Bond offers a minimal design and has a stainless steel aesthetic, instead of the colorful or textured options offered on some Leatherman tools. The Leatherman Bond, though diminutive, is anything but minimalist when it comes to the tool options themselves. It boasts an astounding 14 essential tools in one, providing ways to cut, measure, and address a wide array of everyday tasks. The brand officially describes the Bond as “The perfect glove-box backup or first-time users tool.” It is in essence an everyday carry but a smaller tool for less intense jobs. It also serves as a good backup if larger tools are stored and are not easily accessible.
