Knife Deep Dive: Leatherman Surge Review

What are the functions of the Leatherman Surge?

The Leatherman Surge can be seen as one of the powerhouses within the Leatherman family. Some even see him as the bigger brother of the Leatherman Wave.

The reasons why are obvious: not just because of the typical (ruler embossed) comfortable grip you get on it, but some of the most commonly used tools are directly accessible from the outside: large, one-handed opening blade, heavy spring-loaded scissors, large fully serrated blade and, to top it off, an interchangeable saw blade. Yes, that's right, via a handy mechanism you can exchange the universal (hardware store!) jigsaw blade for the included diamond-coated file. And they all fall into place. How about that for versatility! And that's exactly what it says on the outside of the tool.

Inside are several (interchangeable) screwdrivers, an awl and a can opener with wire stripper. Still not enough? Well, these days the Surge also has replaceable cutting inserts in its pliers that don't cost much but last a very long time.

Is the Ratchet Driver applicable to the Leatherman Surge?

For those looking for maximum versatility, it can even be combined with Leathermans' relatively new Ratchet Driver via the replaceable screwdriver cap, which allows the operator to use any type of regular screwdriver bits! Go anywhere in the included straps, there really is no more excuse for not getting things done!
