Leatherman OHT Review

I absolutely love this multi-tool.  It is always in my pocket and I never realized how much I use it until I misplaced it for a few days.  I was absolutely lost without it.  I am constantly using the pliers, knife, strap cutter, wire cutter around the homestead. The one handed design is very useful when you work alone as much as I do.  It comes with a sheath that attaches to a belt but I opt to carry mine in my pocket. I find for as many tools as it has handy it is not very bulky. The material is high grade and all cutting tools are very sharp from the manufacturer and I have not noticed any dulling after constant use. Here are the specs from Leatherman:

  • FEATURING 16 TOOLS: Spring-action needlenose pliers, spring-action regular pliers, spring-action 164CM replaceable hard-wire cutters, spring-action 154CM replaceable wire cutters, 420HC knife, 420HC serrated knife, saw, strap cutter, #8-32 cleaning rod/brush adapter, can opener, bottle opener, oxygen tank wrench, phillips screwdriver, large screwdriver, medium screwdriver, small screwdriver.
  • ALL LOCKING FEATURES: All locking features mean that every tool and knife on the body of the handle, with the exception of the plier head, will lock into place. The all locking design enables you to operate individual tools safely and effectively. By locking them into place when fully open, you can put pressure on the implement while safely completing the job, before manually unlocking the tool to stow it away. The Jaw Lockout feature prevents the jaws from slipping into the handles during use.
  • OUTSIDE-ACCESSIBLE TOOLS: The OHT features tools that are accessible while the tool is in its folded or closed position, mimicking the functionality of a pocket knife. In addition, the handles on the OHT are imprinted with images of the tool underneath, allowing you to easily feel for the correct tool while in dark or limited-visibility situations.
  • ONE-HANDED OPERABLE: Every feature on the OHT can be opened and operated with one hand. This enables you to keep the other hand free for situations that require multi-tasking or a free hand.

I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a great everyday carry multi-tool. You can purchase your own by clicking Leatherman – OHT Multitool, Black with MOLLE Black Sheath (FFP). (Affiliate link)

  1. Just listened to your podcast episode on the one you lost while making deliveries. Looks like Amazon has them back in stock with Prime delivery.
