Leatherman Charge+

rated 5.0 of 5 stars
photo: Leatherman Charge+ multi-tool

This knife is perfect for almost anything and the knives are easily accessible with one hand only. Although a little on the heavier side it is very sturdy and reliable for an EDC or as part of your tool kit.


  • Its versatility in usage: from fishing, camping, fixing things around the house to opening bottles it does it all.


  • It is relatively heavy for EDC. Its weight requires you to use the case it comes with..and the bottom of the case may become wider over time and the knife may fall through. This is easily avoidable though by using the clip.

I love this multitool. I have used it fishing to remove hooks, fillet and descale fish, and use when eating as a knife. I use it around the house for minor repairs as I also bought the extra screw driver heads (highly recommend you get this as well to make the most of the Charge).

I find the knife blade holds an edge well and resharpens fairly easily. The added bonus is the one-handed access to the knives. This is a huge bonus when things might be dirty. 

The only negative I can report on the Charge is its overall weight, as it is just a little too heavy to carry in your front pocket all day every day. Use the case and save your pockets from excess wear and tear.


This was my first Leatherman. I searched reviews of knives and determined this was the best overall multitool for my needs. I bought it a few years ago and carry it with me almost daily.

Source: bought it new
Price Paid: I believe around 150$
