Exploring, learning, doing: introducing the Leatherman Leap, the first Leatherman multi-tool created specifically for younger users. Their engineers designed the Leap with safety as their #1 priority. Thats why the Leap includes safety locks that keep fingers from the path of the tools, a two-hand opening knife blade for safer deployment, and a secure grip designed to train users to properly and safely operate tools. The Leap also comes with a user-installed knife blade that can be added by a parent when the user is ready for more responsibility. At Leatherman, they celebrate the mentors who took the time to pass on a valuable skill or life lesson. Together, were helping adults pass on their tool skills and build a meaningful heritage with the next generation.
