Chuyện về chúng tôi

Ở đây, tại Oregon, chúng tôi luôn có thói quen hoàn tất mọi việc – bạn có thể gọi nó là tinh thần tiên phong của chúng tôi. Đó chỉ là cách chúng ta làm việc. Đó là lý do Tim Leatherman chế tạo dụng cụ đa năng đầu tiên của mình và tại sao Leatherman Tool Group đã hứa với cộng đồng là chúng tôi phát triển nhà máy và sản xuất lại địa phương. Tại sao? Chúng tôi tự hào hỗ trợ cho những công nhân Hoa Kỳ, những người tận tâm với nghề thủ công chất lượng cao trong mỗi dụng cụ đa năng Mỹ giống như người sáng lập của chúng tôi .

Our Founder

Sau khi trải qua tuổi thơ ở Oregon, Tim Leatherman học tại địa phương và nhận bằng Cử nhân Khoa học Kỹ thuật Cơ khí của Đại học Oregon (OSU).Sau đó Tim dành thời gian đi du lịch nước ngoài – ở nhà trọ và lái xe một chiếc Fiat cũ kỹ – trị giá 300 đô la không đáng tin cậy – nó đã thuyết phục Tim về sự cần thiết của một chiếc kìm, một công cụ đa năng. “Tôi mang theo một con dao của hướng đạo sinh và sử dụng nó cho tất cả mọi thứ từ việc cắt bánh mì tới điều chỉnh xe, nhưng tôi vẫn muốn có một đôi kìm!”

The mother of Invention

Trở về nhà , Tim bắt đầu phát triển và đang ký sáng chế ý tưởng của mình. Ngay sau khi trở lại, ông hợp tác với người bạn đại học, Steve Berliner để tiếp tục xây dựng các khái niệm và tiếp cận triển vọng tiềm năng cho việc bán hàng. Vào ngày 5 tháng 7 năm 1983, Tim và Steve chính thức thành lập Leatherman Tool Group, Inc. dựa trên một vài nguyên tắc cơ bản : sản xuất những sản phẩm có chất lượng cao nhất mang lại giá trị tuyệt vời cho người tiêu dùng, đồng thời cung cấp công ăn việc làm cho lực lượng lao động địa phương. Cũng trong năm đó, sau gần một thập niên gõ cửa chào hàng và hoàn thiện ý tưởng của mình, họ đã bán dụng cụ Pocket Survival Tool đầu tiên (PST). Và như câu chuyện nối tiếp … phần còn lại là lịch sử.

30 Years Later

Ba mươi năm sau, chúng tôi vẫn tiếp tục phát triển mạnh mẽ ở Mỹ, tạo ra các dụng cụ và dao đa năng nổi tiếng, có thể chịu đựng bất cứ điều gì và vẫn sử dụng tốt.
Mặc dù Tim đã nghỉ hưu, tinh thần sáng tạo của người Mỹ, đổi mới và chất lượng vẫn phát triển mạnh mẽ trong tất cả chúng tôi. Khi được hỏi về lòng tận tâm của công ty đối với chất lượng, Tim luôn trả lời, “Nó phải thật hoàn hảo, Tên của tôi in trên mọi dụng cụ.

A Family of Doers

At Leatherman, we’re a group of fixers, outdoor enthusiasts, former service members, adventure seekers and just plain doers. And we know our products will stand the test of time because we count on them ourselves every day. Our mission is to inspire and prepare Leatherman owners for the expected – and unexpected – that inevitably will come their way. Every multi-tool and knife we ship out the door is crafted by one of the 700 Oregonians who call Leatherman a great place to work, and we stand behind our products with a no-questions-asked 25 year warranty.

The birth of a multi-tool

We invite you to see firsthand where your Leatherman tool was crafted at one of our weekly tours, or view our timeline of tools right here on our website. We’re proud to live and work in the USA and it shows in every multi-tool and knife we make. Leatherman. Leave nothing undone.

Leatherman Timeline


The PST is the original Leatherman tool. Packs a dozen essential tools into one compact package. Continual improvements have enhanced screwdriver performance and added a hard-wire cutting notch. Comes in standard or black finishes and a cap-crimper model. Tim Leatherman’s original invention is as handy as ever. (Retired 2004)


The Mini-Tool is the world’s smallest multipurpose tool with full-size, full-strength pliers. Our unique folding handle design makes both comfort and small size possible. Slip it into your jeans pocket or wear it with an optional belt sheath. Available in standard brushed stainless finish or black finish. (Retired 2004)


The Super Tool® is the biggest, strongest multi-purpose tool in our line. All blades have a unique locking mechanism, which is the toughest, most precise locking mechanism available on any multi-purpose tool. Its heavy-duty capabilities make the Super Tool® especially useful for the professional, but anyone who needs the extra safety of ten locking blades will be glad to have this workhorse at their fingertips.

1996: MICRA

Leatherman’s most popular keychain tool is now America’s most celebrated! Introducing the special-edition Leatherman Micra with a commemorative stars and stripes design. Spring-action scissors and 9 additional, easy-to-use tools make this a must-have accessory.


Wave has more features than any other Leatherman and offers easy access to four locking blades without opening the tool. The interior is loaded with seven additional tool blades. Its smooth, rounded handles are the most comfortable we’ve ever produced. Wave is the top of the Leatherman line. (Retired 2004)

1999: CRUNCH

Vise grip pliers that fold away make the Leatherman Crunch unlike any multi-tool available today. The Crunch clamps up to a 1-inch diameter pipe, and if you remove the adjusting screw, you’ll find a hex-bit adapter built right in. With locking blades that release with the push of a button, the Crunch will take a bite out of any job.

2000: PULSE

Pulse makes things simple and safe with every blade easily locked and released. Just slide back the lock release on the outside of the handle. We’ve combined popular features, comfortable handles, and our most popular 4″ size into an all-around winner. (Retired 2004)

We’ve upgraded the classic Super Tool to include rounded handles and a sliding lock release on the outside for easy access. The serrated knife blade is rounded at the tip for safety. The Super Tool 200 is ideal for professional users. (Retired 2006)

2004: NEW WAVE

The Leatherman Wave multi-tool is hands down our most popular model, made famous by its outside-accessible blades that can be deployed with just one hand.

Perfect for any job, adventure, or everyday task, the Wave multi-tool is an international best-seller.

2009: SUPER TOOL 300

The award-winning, Leatherman Super Tool 300 is the multi-tool for the working man. Larger pliers are the strongest we’ve ever produced and the sloped-top handle design means you can maneuver them further into tight spaces. When you’re working with gloves on, the large side cutouts make it easy to still grab components and rolled handles make for a comfortable grip. Stranded, hard and regular wire cutters all come standard on Super Tool 300, and because they’re removable you can repair or re-sharpen on the spot. 19 tools all ready for your toughest jobs. Super Tool 300 is back from vacation and ready to get to work.

2010: MUT

The Leatherman MUT is the first multi-tool that functions as both a tactical and practical tool for military, LE, or civilian shooters. The MUT features multiple areas on the tool threaded for cleaning rods and brushes and all the screwdriver bits are sized for standard military and civilian sighting adjustment work. Also built into the design of the tool is the flexibility to replace the most commonly used parts on the spot, using a simple Torx #8, keeping down-time to a minimum. With all this, a MOLLE sheath and scope adjustment wrench included, the Leatherman MUT may very well be the most efficient and useful piece in your kit.

2011: STYLE PS

The handy Style PS is one unique, travel-friendly, multi-tool. With spring-action pliers, a file, scissors, tweezers, bottle opener and mini-screwdriver, you’ll never be without your most necessary tools; now even when you travel!

The Brewzer has been designed to pop the top on your favorite beverage in just one try, making it the only keychain bottle opener you’ll ever need. The multi-purpose flat tip also acts as a mini pry tool. Made from high-grade, heat-treated stainless steel, the Brewzer fits perfectly on your keychain split ring (through the beer-bottle-shaped hole) or in your pocket.

2013: HAIL

Designed to crank on a binding, open a beer, tune your board or stash your ear buds, the Leatherman Hail snowboard tool was a joint effort between our tool engineers and the Signal Snowboard® designers.
