Launched in 2019, the Leatherman FREE collection reinvented the category that Tim Leatherman created 37 years ago. The new colourways were inspired by Leatherman’s home state of Oregon, where all of the products are manufactured: The Painted Hills inspired Crimson; the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean inspired Navy; and Oregon's temperate rainforests inspired Evergreen.
Leatherman’s senior industrial designer Mark Perusich comments: “The Pacific Northwest is stunningly beautiful and contains a variety of climates, whether it’s the lush, green forests, rugged mountains or the blue of the ocean. Each colour within the collection is inspired by the natural landscapes in our own backyard.”
Leatherman FREE T4 multipurpose tool
One of the most compact offerings in the Leatherman FREE family, the T4 is a small and mighty multipurpose tool. At just 121.9g, it fits easily into a pocket, but punches well above its weight when it comes to performance. It has 12 tools and every feature is accessible on the outside, allowing for tools to be easily opened with one hand. Tools include knife, pry tool, package opener, awl, bottle opener, wood/metal file, Phillips screwdriver, medium, small and extra small screwdrivers, tweezers and scissors.
Leatherman FREE K2 multipurpose knife
The Leatherman K2 was designed for the folding knife user who wants multipurpose functionality. The main blade is 8.4cm long, in high-quality 420 steel. There are seven other tools, including a pry tool and Phillips screwdriver. Each implement is housed on the outside of an ergonomically refined aluminium body for ease of use, and every tool and knife on the body of the handle.
