Is it possible to install a different blade in my Leatherman tool?

While Leatherman tools are designed with a specific set of features to make them versatile and multi-functional, it's not recommended to modify or replace individual blade components from one tool version to another. Doing so could compromise the tool's functionality and potentially create safety hazards.

How do I unlock the blades on my Leatherman tool if they become stuck?

If the blades on your Leatherman tool become stuck, you can use a separate screwdriver or similar device to unlock them. With the handles closed together, insert the screwdriver into the slot created by the handle spring where the handle locks onto the tool blades. Gently pry up the handle spring until one of the blades can be released.

Be careful when using the screwdriver to avoid damaging the tool or injuring yourself. If you're unsure about the process, it's best to contact us for assistance.

I purchased a black oxide finished tool that appears worn or used. Is it possible that I accidentally received a used tool?

The black oxide finish on Leatherman tools is a "conversion coating," which alters the surface of the metal rather than covering it like paint. During the process of oxidizing the outer layer of atoms on the surface, a black substance is formed that provides the black finish. This substance may wear away over time with regular use, but this is expected with this type of finish. To avoid staining, you can wipe down the tool surfaces with CRC 3-36 or a similar oil, which will help set the finish and make it last longer. This is similar to how your skin oils can help maintain the finish. Therefore, it is unlikely that you received a used tool by accident.

Can I sharpen the blades on my Leatherman tool?

Yes, the blades on Leatherman tools can be sharpened with a sharpening stone or a handheld knife sharpener. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions and take proper safety precautions.

How do I choose the right Leatherman tool for my needs?

Consider what tasks you need the tool to perform and choose a model that has the features and tools you require. Leatherman tools come in various sizes and configurations, so you can select the one that best fits your needs and preferences.

How do I clean and maintain my Leatherman tool?

To clean and maintain your Leatherman tool, wipe it down with a soft, damp cloth and dry it thoroughly after each use. You can also use a mild soap solution if necessary. Apply a light coating of oil to the moving parts and pivot points periodically to keep them lubricated.
