I got myself a new Multi Tool for Christmas. It’s called the Leatherman Wingman and as of January 2016 it sells for under $40 on Amazon and probably more wherever else you can find it.
Leatherman Wingman Unboxing
As you can see the Leatherman Wingman comes in a nicely designed box in a cool Black and Yellow color pattern which grabs your attention right away.
In the box is the Wingman itself and a very good, very detailed user guide which we will get to in a moment.
Yes, This Is A Multi Tool
As you can see from the pics the Leatherman Wingman is built well. It has a nice brushed steel finish which in my opinion gives it a high quality look and feel.
The multi tool is made from 420HC Stainless Steel which has good corrosion resistance and decent toughness but wears faster than some of the better Stainless Steels.
It has the Leatherman logo on the front and back of the multi tool so there’s no question who made it.
The belt clip is very thick and strong, I don’t imagine it breaking anytime soon.
The whole thing is held together with four (4) Torx head screws.
Lets Open It Up
The main tool is the pliers. They are spring loaded and made of 420HC Stainless Steel which is a magnetic stainless and is of a lower quality than 54CM and S30V Stainless that the more expensive models use, but still plenty good for a multi tool at this price range.
Wingman Knife and Scissors
The knife blade is made from 420HC Stainless Steel, it is 2.5″ long and has a serrated section for cutting tougher materials.
When you lock them into place fully open they become spring loaded which makes them very easy to use.
Leatherman used some awesome engineering to design these scissors I am impressed.
The Rest Of The Wingman’s Tools
But wait these more! The Leatherman Wingman has eight other tools hidden away for a grand total of 13 useful tools in one nice multi tool package.
On one side we have both a Flathead and a Phillips screwdriver.
- Medium Flathead screwdriver
- Wood/Metal file
- Wire Strippers
- Can/Bottle Opener
- Package Opener
All of these tools lock into position when fully extended and extend/retract smoothly.
Yes it might not be as good as it’s more expensive brothers but I found it to have very high quality for a multi tool under $40.00.
The finish alone made it look much more expensive and also gives it an antique look and feel like an old trusty friend that wont let you down.
