Leatherman Super Tool 300

rated 5.0 of 5 stars
photo: Leatherman Super Tool 300 multi-tool

This is my EDC tool. I take this with me everywhere. It is very handy and not heavy at all, in fact, this is the best Leatherman you could possibly own. The package says 19 tools, but I found 21 uses for this handy tool and recently I had 'No Fear' engraved on it. That's how much I love this tool. It's my favorite Leatherman and I own a few. You can't go wrong with this one.


  • Stainless steel
  • All tools lock
  • Not too heavy
  • Very tough and durable
  • Phillips fits any bit adapter to use any bits!!
  • No proprietary bits needed
  • Long screwdrivers
  • Replaceable wire cutters


  • No pocket clip
  • No scissors
  • Expensive
  • Tools are on the inside
  • Cheap sheath

This is a tough tool indeed. This is not a medium-duty tool like the Wave, Rebar, or Charge. It is not a budget tool like a Wingman or Sidekick. This is a heavy duty MT like the Surge, but the Super Tool 300 is lighter and has 21 uses, even though the package says 19 tools.

I never leave home without my Super Tool. I have owned this tool for a few months and I was able to fix my mountain bike, my mother's car, a friend's light switch, a bathroom rack. I just fix and replace many things with my Super Tool, it's very handy and easily eliminates the need for a lot of other tools.

This tool is so awesome, I had it engraved at the mall for a $10 fee and $1 per letter, but I had to because I love my ST300. I also have a bit adapter from a cheap multitool and it fits the Phillips bit on my ST300 and I can use ANY bit including drill and ratchet bits.

This Leatherman is Legend. I have the Wave but I don't want to spend money on proprietary bits when I can just get a bit adapter and use it with my ST300 and I don't care if I lose bits because I have so many of them, but that to me is a great plus because it makes it more useful for any task I set to work on. For work and fixing things i might bring my bits if I need them, but for rec and camping or hiking, I just take my Super Tool without bits and the sheath because I like to play with it, clean it as I walk and talk with friends.

I just can't say enough about the Super Tool 300. It's just that handy and I've heard of people saving lives with their Leatherman multi-tools and that is just really great, noble, and honorable.

This is an awesome tool. I carry it everyday along with my Wave, but the ST300 will handle anything you throw at it. It's best to carry at least two Leathermans, at least I do anyway. but the ST300 will always be on my side.


  • Very durable and love the 154cm replaceable hard/wire cutters.
  • Inside tools are easy to get out with gloves on


  • No scissors, that is the only flaw of the ST300

I use my ST300 to cut 1/4-inch bale wire at work and it goes thru it like a hot knife through butter. It is very strong and durable. Great for hunting and fishing along with camping and on the job stuff.

Definitely worth the money if you are looking for HD tool.

Does just about anything that needs doing on trail, except cook dinner and tuck you in bed.


  • The upgraded original with the right tools
  • Durability


  • Heavier than a P-51

So useful that I have three; one for each bag I own. Only a lack of insight could bring me to pay twice as much for a half-pint sized multi-tool with one quarter of the utility the Leatherman 300 has.

Just remember to get more than one, because as the saying goes, "Two is one as one is none"; meaning small stuff will be the first things lost and if you've only got one, when it's lost or dropped to the bottom of the ravine; you're out. Tether that bitch.

This is a tool for every task, in every environment, for every situation.


  • Rust-proof
  • Multi-tools it comes with are really the bare minimum for getting you out of every minor emergency and for every minor task.


  • It can be difficult getting some of the tools out, especially the knives. The small slit isn't enough and one's fingernails aren't strong enough to extract the tools so sometimes you need to find something small enough and strong enough to extract the knife.

The Leatherman Super Tool really is a super tool. It's saved me when my car has broken down. I now have a Leatherman in the glove box of all my cars. It's the first tool I grab and throw in my pocket when I start any home project, and it's the tool I took when I backpacked 100 miles on part of the John Muir Trail.  


Love the product. I carry one in every car, I have one i carry on my hikes, and I have one as my EDC (Every Day Carry).

A very good multi-tool. The first one I had that lasted!


  • Strong
  • Great warranty


  • A little heavy for backpacking

I did not get this tool for outdoors. I got it for work and when my job changed and I did not work in the field I added it to my hiking, backpacking, and camping kit. It is a very versatile tool.

I had one problem with the wire cutters becoming dull and Leatherman replaced the tool free.

Great! Well constructed and have used mine to build shelter in storm when in Zion. Wouldn't leave home without it. However, I do not own a tent except for a 6x9 tarp which does a fine job!


  • Well constructed


  • A bit heavy

Smooth operation, never gets loose, leather case included and rustproof!
