#1 Leatherman New Wave
The Leatherman Wave Plus has all the essential tools of the original with the addition of replaceable, durable wire cutters.
The tools on this model can be accessed in both the folded or closed positions just like you would use a pocket knife. Besides the cutting tools (knife, serrated knife, saw), this multitool also comes with replaceable needlenose and regular pliers, various screwdrivers, integrated wire tools (hard-wire cutters, stripper), and spring-action scissors. These are the most important but if you count them all, there are 18 tools in total, a complete arsenal for a wide variety of projects.
All 18 tools can be opened and locked with one hand to quickly, conveniently tackle any task. Many of these tools are outside-accessible, so you can use them when the multi-tool is folded and closed.
