Leatherman has a great Black Friday deal going on right now, where you save 50% off customizations.
I have been using Leatherman tools for many years now, and have had countless great experiences with their products. Let’s talk about their Black Friday promo, and some gift ideas.
Thank you to Leatherman for sponsoring this deal/gift guide!

I personalized Leatherman multi-tools once – as groomsmen gifts when I got married. It was a bit of a hassle to find a place that could do it, but the results were decent. I do have one regret – not getting one for myself.
Leatherman’s new promo makes it extremely tempting for me to finally right that long-term wrong.
They’re got the know-how to do it right, and there are so many options.
Here’s a look at some of the types of customizations the Leatherman Custom Shop can do:
This is the SURGE, with snowflake patterns decorating the handles.
Here’s the SKELETOOL – one of my favorite minimalist multi-tools of all-time, with a personalized and decorated blade.
The Customization Shop can etch the plain-finish or black-coated versions. This one is the WAVE+.
The SIGNAL is an extremely popular more outdoor-focused multi-tool.
You can even customize the RAPTOR folding shears.
Leatherman Gift Guide – 5 Tools to Give or Get
I’m sold on the Leatherman Micra, a keychain-sized multi-tool, and will be ordering one as a gift to myself this season. The only question is about which color option I should select, and whether I’ll get it customized too.
I love my Skeletool – it’s compact, minimalist, and has held up very well over the years. It has been the perfect EDC for times when all I need is a knife, pliers, and screwdriver.
Here’s a tough question – if I had to buy a new one, would I go for colored scales, customization, or both? If you don’t care for options, the plain-finish model is a classic.
I love my Wave, and the Wave+ is even better, with replaceable cutter blades.
If you want a slightly more compact and affordable tool, the Curl joined the lineup last year.
Is the Raptor Rescue overbuilt for my needs? Absolutely, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a superb folding and portable cutting shear with bonus tools and functions built on.
If I ever lose my older black-handled version, I’d replace it in a heartbeat. I’m not sure I would personalize it, but I would absolutely choose one of the many bright new colors available.
Colors aren’t just about aesthetics; I have found that brighter colors can help me more quickly find a multi-tool (or flashlight) on a cluttered work surface.
I finally bought myself a Leatherman Free P4 multi-tool earlier this year, and my other multi-tools are jealous that I’m choosing it more and more over them.
This is a 21-function tool, and its magnetic opening and closing mechanisms.
Leatherman says this is their most advanced multipurpose tool ever made. It might not look like it at the surface, but after a few minutes in your hand, you’ll agree.
What’s your favorite Leatherman multi-tool or accessory? Is there anything on your wishlist, or are you doing the giving this year?
