Leatherman Tool was founded in 1983 In Portland, Oregon, by Tim Leatherman. After 8 years of designing, tweaking, more designing and knocking on doors, Tim made his first sale in 1983 and we continue to design and produce multi-tools and knives.
These handy multi-tools and knives, have seen it all. They’ve starred in everything from Oscar-winning movies to everyday scenarios with moms, dads, friends, aunts, uncles and more the world over. They’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly and even a few battlefields. They’ve pulled teeth, helped deliver babies, saved lives and we’re told by avid fans have more than 1000 uses.
