Made of 100% stainless steel, the Leatherman surge is a juggernaut in itself – it has all the features and capabilities that anyone needs to perform their handiwork, as well as survive any type of apocalypse. The superb versatility is what does the trick.
When it comes to the multi tool department, there aren’t that many brands that can claim this kind of a long list of features that their pocket tools can perform.
When it comes to a multi-tool, it doesn’t matter at all what the tool make is, all that matters is what type of work can the tool perform. When an unexpected event occurs in your life, it’s best to be prepared and with the proper tool on your belt.
Advantages of a multi tool
Carrying a big toolbox everywhere you go is just exhausting and energy-wise just wasteful. Having something that is light, nearly invisible to others, can be carried easily and is very “handy” in the work that it can perform is very important. The sentimental value of the tool isn’t there when you first purchase it, but rather when you look back at the times when the multi-tool was your life-line when you were in a pinch.
Whether you’re the Mr. Fix-it in your family, or just someone that loves to tinker around with the everyday things, the Leatherman surge multi-tool can be the best handyman sidekick that you can get.
Here’s a full Leatherman surge review, where we’ll take a look at the specs that come with this tool as well as a comparison of the Leatherman surge vs. wave and against the super 300 tool.
Leatherman Surge Review
The Leatherman surge multi-tool is assembled in the USA with parts that are domestic and imported. It is a tool that is larger and more durable than any other standard pocket-sized tool. The first thing that you’ll immediately notice is that the tool is much larger than any other that you’ll find in the market. It is still capable of fitting inside of your pocket, but for convenience purposes, Leatherman created a personalized pouch, or sheath, that works well with this tool.
In addition to that, the multi-tool was designed and manufactured to withstand the toughest strains and work that needs its abilities. The blades that are attached to it as also more resilient and can last much longer than any other.
The list of features that come with the Leatherman, especially the Leatherman black surge edition, are more than enough to set it miles ahead of any other competitor. It’s a powerhouse built to fit the smallest pockets. The Leatherman Surge multi-tool comes with 21 different tools for you to choose from, which includes scissors, can opener, ruler, saw, wire stripper, bit driver, pliers, and a file blade just to name a few.
With this multi-tool, there’s never a time when you won’t be prepared. Some of the tools that it comes with don’t belong in the multi-tool category, giving you more than you ever needed. To top it all off, the Leatherman comes with rust-free metal, giving you years’ worth of work potential without having to purchase, or make any maintenance.
Leatherman Surge vs. Leatherman Wave and other Competitors
With all of the many tools that are available with the Leatherman Surge multi-tool, you may argue that some of the features that you are getting with it are unnecessary and you don’t have to settle for it. There are other multi-tools that give you the minimum amount of tools that you need, albeit their high quality, but they don’t give you the full versatility that only comes with the Surge multi-tool.
When you look at the “matchup” of Leatherman Surge vs. Wave, they are both tools that provide pretty much everything you need. Yet the only difference between them is the weight.
If you’re looking for lightweight tools, then the wave is the best option. But when it comes to longevity, the Surge surpasses the wave by far.
The Surge vs. super tool 300 (ST300)
Now, this is a very close call. The ST300 is one of the newer model Leatherman tools, which has been considered as the “Chuck Norris of multi-tools”.
It’s a great tool and has many more capabilities than the surge. Yet the one downside, which is noteworthy of mentioning, is the accessibility to most of the tools. The surge has all the tools readily available while the ST300 has most of them intertwined on the inside, giving you a harder time to get them out. The Surge, vs. the ST300 and the Wave comes out on top, making it the reigning champion.
It’s solid, old school, sturdy, just how we like them.Comments Off on Leatherman Surge Multi Tool – Is it really the Best? Reviews and Comparisons
