Used by professionals world-wide, the Wave allows quick access to 4 of the 17 tools (2 knife blades, a file and a saw) with one hand, and without opening the tool. All blades lock, and it has two bit drivers instead of the the fixed standard screwdrivers of smaller models. The Wave also incorporates a large bit driver that allows you to switch bits to customise the tool to your requirements.
What on earth could Leatherman’s design team do to improve it? The answer? Add replaceable wire cutters!
Newly released, the Wave Plus features a newly designed set of pliers that includes removeable and replaceable 154 cm wirecutters.
“It’s not an easy task to improve on the greatest multi-tool of all time, but we always look to our fans for inspiration. They’ve been asking for replaceable wirecutters for some time,” said Tim Lyden, Sr. Product Manager for Leatherman Tool Inc. “Now the iconic Wave gets new life with fresh wirecutters.”
The Wave Plus comes with a sheath made from high quality nylon webbing and features a premium metal snap closure, improving durability.
Leatherman’s design team have also redesigned the Charge and Charge TTi for 2018. The Charge Plus TTi will receive the updated pliers and new sheath. Along with the replaceable 154 cm wirecutters, the new Charge Plus will include a serrated blade with cutting hook and redesigned aluminum scales.
Like all Leatherman tools, the new models will be covered by Leatherman’s 25-year warranty.
