Leatherman Sidekick Multi-Tool with Nylon Sheath
Notify me when back in stock
After spending his childhood in Oregon, Tim Leatherman stayed local and received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Oregon State University. Time spent traveling abroad - which included staying at hostels and driving an untrustworthy $300 Fiat - convinced Tim of the need for a pliers based, multi-purpose tool. "I was carrying an old Boy Scout-type knife and used it for everything from slicing bread to making adjustments to the car. But I kept wishing I had a pair of pliers!" Tim set to work developing and patenting his idea. On July 5, 1983 Tim officially incorporated Leatherman Tool Group, Inc. And as the story goes...the rest is history.
The Leatherman Sidekick is a handy pocket-sized tool with all the features you need to get your project done, at a fraction of the cost. It has handy outside-accessible blades meaning you can open the blade and saw without opening the whole tool. A great choice for first-time users.
The original Portland, Oregon multi-tool manufacturer is making you your very own Sidekick. You can open the knife with just one hand and rounded handles make getting a grip around the all-new, spring-action jaws easy and very comfortable. Stainless steel and backed by a 25-year warranty; first choice, or handy second backup, you can't beat the value of the Sidekick. Comes complete with a quality leather sheath.
Includes Nylon Sheath: This nylon belt sheath is made with sturdy ballistic nylon and features a Velcro closure and three pockets/slots for accessories. This sheath also permits holstering a tool in the open (pliers) position and allows for vertical and horizontal carry. Internal Capacity: 101.6mm x 35.5mm x .20.3mm

Reviews of Leatherman Sidekick Multi-Tool with Nylon Sheath
Leatherman Sidekick Multi-Tool with Nylon Sheath(5) By: Mike on 18 November 2016I've owned a lot of multitools over the years and I've tried other brands but I always come back to leatherman. I used the sidekick for a while and it has some great features and typical leatherman quality but for my purposes, I find the Skeletool to be the best.
