New Leatherman Folding Knives

Leatherman finally decided to offer a series of folding knives. The line seems to have a pretty good offering. Does anyone here own any of these new folders?

I am considering getting the model k500x Leatherman. Yeah like I really need another knife Laugh With it's blade shape, grind, and steel type it just seem like this model would be a great knife for deer. Plus it has only two impliment, a 3.1 inch blade, and fold-in carbiner clip and nothing else to get in the way or broken off. http://www.leatherman.com/products/knives/default.asp

I've always liked Leatherman multi-tools. Have alway found use for my first generation "Wave" model multi-tool around the house, garage, yard, in camp, aboard my plane, in my vehicle etc. While it's not the exact tool for every single job, I have to say that it's the most useful compact tool I own, and has what you need to get you by in a pinch when you need it.

Agree about the multi tool. Very handy to have around when one of those inconveniences pop up. Those new knives look pretty nice Yes

New Leatherman Folding Knives

A friend of mine just bought a new leatherman knife. Not sure what model number it is, but it is neat. It has the knife of course, which is S30V, a damn good metal that holds an edge! It also has a screwdriver bit holder(You can buy the bit kit, for like $20 I think, and it has many other things. I have the new generation Wave, and it has proven itself already. Can't wait to take it in the woods with me!! Yes

New Leatherman Folding Knives

I got a e305x as a gift last Christmas. It is a great knife and holds a good edge. I transfered into a more management position at work so wearing my Wave to the office (when I am in the office) isnt considered "business casual", who knew? Think So those days I carry my leatherman knife.

Kind of thought that the carbiner option I would seldem use but I see that leatherman promotes it as a bottle opener Thumbs up I lke the knife even more now.

If the knives are half as good as their multi-tools they should be excellent. They should make to our shelves in the republic of Kanada in 3-4 years. Brick Wall,)
