The Leatherman Rebar, has the same look of the Super Tool 300 and the Micra. This soon-to-be favorite rounds out Leatherman's classic "Heritage" line of products by offering one in each size category. Just like the Super Tool 300, the Rebar pliers have been optimized for strength and feature replaceable wire/hard-wire cutters—a first for a four-inch tool from Leatherman. With all the features to get even the toughest jobs done, in a smaller, slimmer size, the new Rebar is sure to be an instant hit on job sites, and home-projects the world over.
I've had several Leatherman multitools, starting with the first Supertool /first wave/pst/skeletool/2knifes/Mut and now Rebar (black). Most of these early tools were a little heavy for Na edc and I stopped carrying them after several months. It could have been that they had way to many tools in one package. I believe after all these years that I found the perfect light weight carry multi-tool with all the tools I like and need. Great job Leatherman!!
I carried a Leatherman PST for many years, starting at about age 14. When it finally came time to upgrade, this was the perfect replacement. It has all the same tools and more. They corrected the few things I didn't like about the PST. These tools lock, so no more pinched fingers, and I can replace the wire cutters if they ever wear out. The knife blades seem to hold an edge very well. I carry it every day, whether I'm going to the office, going camping, hiking, fishing, working on vehicles, or fixing things around the house. I've cut small tree limbs. I can honestly say that I use every tool in it and I rarely wish for anything else that you might find in a bigger tool.
Digs into the hand when using pliers, my only complaint.
I've had this for a year and have had other leathermans too. Such as the super tool 300, the wave, the wingman and the little one with scissors in place of pliers, which I forget the name of. All having nice fit and finish just lacking in temper. The blades of all of these tools that I own all have chipping issues along the edge. Not only that but have sadly I have broken every single one be it the pliers, the knives, the screwdriver bits. I don't abuse these tools but I'm not afraid to use them either. Just wish leatherman kept the Rockwell a litter bit softer or used stronger steel.
This would be Leatherman's response to the twenty or so off brand manufacturers of similar tools. Obviously that's not possible since Leatherman is the original multi-tool. That being said this tool is miles better than those of similar make. Is not the wave but it well worth the price if you can't afford the wave.
