Very very useful.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Leatherman Wave with a Nylon Pouch (DIY & Tools)
Since buying this I carry it everywhere with me. You can do virtually anything with it.
It makes a great addition to a toolkit and the easy access blades on the side really make it much better than conventional multi-tools. the blades also hold an edge well.
The inclusion of the bit driver also helps lots, it saves space for other tools and makes it more flexible. Another good thing about the bit driver is that the cross head bit is wider than many on multi-tools and pen knifes meaning you get better bite on cross-head screws. If you wear glasses, you'll also enjoy the smaller glasses bit-driver which is also good for small electronics.
The scissors are okay, not great but they do the job when you're on the move. they aren't quite small enough to be good as nail scissors and they aren't quite large enough for cutting paper etc.
The can/bottle opener is pretty standard except for the included wire stripper which is good for small wires.
The combi-needlenose pliers are decent, the cutting edge isn't the best but it does the job, it's not quite good enough for wire stripping and it struggles on thicker wire a bit, I've found myself using the blade to cut the flex coating gently and then using the pliers to pull the pvc away.
All in all, a good tool for the price, but definitely a tool kit addition, not a substitution for real tools.
