  1. I have been a leatherman wave user and fan for a long time. However i like the old style wave better than the new one. When i was shopping around for a new one, as i had lost mine; there were many vendors to chose from. I chose this vendor because they were advertising the old style Wave, by the picture of the old wave and the fact that the description did not include “New Wave” like all of the other vendors.

    Of course I have and am using the new wave now and it is great but still would have preferred the older style, just personal preference.

    I would still recommend the wave to anyone, old style or new.

  2. it’s good product durable and very useful , but the picture is WRONG , the picture for old wave design and what they’ll send is the new wave design , just wanted to make it clear for other customers .

    more than that the service was nice and the price is higher than other shops .

    thanks

  3. I own this version of the wave and it is my constant companion. It is the first thing to go in the pocket of my overalls and I use it several times a day, everyday, even though I have a barn full of tools to draw on. I am adding this review because I think the two best features have not been mentioned. First and foremost, you can thumb open either of the blades with one hand thus leaving the other hand free to keep hold of what you are working on. You can also release the lock and close the blade one handed. The other multi-tools I have seen require an cumbersome process to get the blades open. I have owned various Leatherman tools for years. They were very useful from time to time, but they stayed in one kit box or another until this feature came along. I lost it a while back and when I went to replace it I found the new version had a socket with a bit for the phillips screwdriver. This brings me to the second advantage to this particular model. You can get other bits to go in the socket. This sounds good at first, but for me at least, it means I can loose the phillips bit and I have to carry around the extra bits to get any good out of them. If you leave them in your toolbox you are going to have to go to your tool box to get a different bit. You might as well just get the screwdriver you need. The value of this tool is the trips back to the toolbox that it saves you. Fortunately, I found my old one before I bought the new one. I am happy to see now that you can still get the original version. I am getting one for my son in law for Christmas. In short this version is elegant in its versatility and utility and durability. You just can’t beat it.

  4. I rarely have the need for multi-tool on my belt, but it seems like I always need one when I’m out somewhere, so I bought the Wave to keep in my truck. Like most multi-tools users, I probably use a knife blade and pliers for 99% of my use, but the other sure come in handy when you need them. I bought the Wave because of the needle nose pliers – which I find most useful if I’m going to have a single type – and a reasonable selection of other basic tools. Several years later, I’m still 100% happy with this tool. It’s extremely well-built of heavy stainless, the knife blades hold an edge, and the pliers are usable with a good amount of squeeze without deforming. Very solid, and fold up compact in its case in the glove box. I keep my eye on newer versions of multi-tools as they come out and have yet to see one that I would replace the Wave for.

  5. I own both the Wave and PST II. Whenever I am doing a job I like to use the Wave because it is stronger and has more tools. The three locking blades and file are accessible without unfolding the tool. The rounded edges on the handle are much more comfortable when using the pliers.

    The Wave is a little bigger and heavier than the PST II, so I tend to leave it off my belt for everyday use in favor of the PST II, but if it was the only one I had, I’d happily wear it everywhere.

    The knife blades, screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters, strippers, and especially the scissors are very convenient, handy, and work well. Since the blades are independent of the other tools (and they lock), this is a safer tool than some of the other Leatherman wannabe’s.

    My only complaint, and this covers the Wave and PST II, is the can opener. For some reason they make it thick and put the bevel on the wrong side (at least if you are right-handed and cut turning CW). It works, but it makes a sloppy cut. I like the can opener on my Swiss Army knife much better.

    I had to use the warranty once and it was a quick and totally satisfying experience. I broke the pliers and they replaced the tool with a brand new one (PST II). Don’t waste your money on a cheap knock-off. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a Leatherman. They are very well built and worth the money.
