Despite being one of the five original Juice Series models introduced in 2001, the KF4 was the only one to be rudely dismissed five years later. No one outside of the Leatherman Tool Group quite knows the reason why. It was a popular choice among multitool enthusiasts, with a blade selection that fell nicely in between the minimalist C2 and S2, and the thicker CS4 and XE6.
- Profile is semi-needlenose
- Features include fine serrations, a gripping area, and a wire cutter area. (with hard wire notch)
- Brushed stainless finish
Handles/FrameSandwich/layer construction of the handles is more thoroughly described on the Juice Series page. On the KF4 model only, there is an inch and metric ruler printed on one side of the tool.
LEATHERMAN and PAT PEND are stamped along the spine of both handles.
PivotsThe Juice series features round head rivets for pivots instead of the traditional Leatherman knurled screws.
