I was lucky to score a Leatherman Charge AL to do a review on. If you do not know what a Leatherman is then let me educate you. It simply put is a utility tool of so many uses in so many places. It is the ultimate Boy Scout tool, better yet survival tool. It is great for any use because they include so many tools built into a rugged and high quality machined component.
The Leatherman Charge AL has handles made of aircraft-grade aluminum and 100% stainless steel blades that use a lock-release mechanism on the outside of the handles
Not only is it a full knife but this Leatherman includes needle nose and regular pliers, wire strippers, newly designed wire cutters, hard-wire cutters, and serrated knife with saw that works. Also housed is a diamond-covered file, 8-inch ruler, can/bottle opener, scissors that are strong enough to cut fishing line, zip-ties and seat belts.
Also included is eight zinc-coated steel bits for so many uses. These include a Hex 5/32”, 9/64”, 1/8”, 7/64”, 3/32”, 5/64”, 1/16”, .050”, Robertson #2 & #3, Screwdriver 1/8”, Torx #15, and a Phillips #1 & #2. They even packed in a Phillips and Flat-tip eyeglass screwdriver.
A removable pocket clip lets me wear the Charge AL on my belt but also has a leather carrying sheath which can also carry the bits.
Leatherman makes a wide range of multi-tools, knives, pocket tools and more. They come in many configurations so check them out for your needs.
All Leatherman’s are assembled in the USA with domestic and imported parts.
