Leap

Leap.png The Leatherman Leap is a tool that is meant to be a kids first multitool. Leatherman has designed this tool to be smaller for a childs hand. It comes in bright colors and even has a knife blade that comes separate so the parent can install it later when they feel the child is responsible enough. With or without the blade the Leap is a great multitool. So great that even an adult could carry this tool and find it to be very useful.
