Rebar

Rebar.png The Leatherman Rebar come out in 2012 and brought back a more classic design for Leatherman. They did away with the Zytel handled series and back to a style similar to the PST. Essentially the Rebar is a mini Super Tool 300 as it has the same tool set and plier head with removable cutters just on a scaled down 4 inch regular size Leatherman tool. This tool is supposed to be the successor to the original tool line and it replaced the Blast, Fuse and Kick

Versions

  • The plier head had a few slight modifications in mid or late 2015.
  • The first Rebars came out with datecodes but due to the fact that the stamping was coming through the handles the datecodes were not put on later models.
  • The file on the Rebar has undergone a change as well. It went from an angled end to a flat end file sometime in it's production but would be hard to pinpoint when due to no datecodes now.

Variations

  • There is the stainless steel version and the black oxide version. The Rebar does not have date codes but has numbers and letters stamped inside of the handles. Texas Toolcrafter also did a custom gold plated Rebar. There is a knifeless version of the Rebar that came out in 2016. They removed both the plain edge and serrated blades and added scissors in. In 2017 Cabelas released a Coyote Brown handled and black oxide tools version of the Rebar and Leatherman released a jungle, or OD green handles stainless steel version of the Rebar. The latter being a limited release edition.

Background

  • Introduced in 2012. Made in the USA. Still in production.
  • This tool is basically a mini Super Tool 300 so that puts it tool wise in the Super Tool family line. It is supposed to be the replacement for the PST, PST II and Pulse type tools. It did replace the Zytel line up of the Blast, Fuse and Kick directly as they were all retired the same year this went into production. The Signal and the Rebar also share the same plier head with removable cutters.
