Leatherman launched a new tool maintenance kit, which looks perfect for keeping your multi-tool and other EDC gear in perfect working order.
Here’s what the new Leatherman tool cleaning and maintenance kit comes with:
- Leatherman blade sharpener
- Double-ended pick
- Cleaning brush
- Parts mat with raised lip
- Microfiber cleaning cloth
- Lubrication oil with needle applicator
- Cleaning swabs
Everything stores neatly in the included case, which has room for a multi-tool (sold separately).
The zippered case has a carrying handle, as well as a loop.
The Leatherman blade sharpener appears to be a branded version of the Work Sharp Pivot Plus knife sharpener, which has a strong reputation behind it.
Price: $69.95 for the maintenance kit, $14.95 for the blade sharpener
You might be saying “but I can get all that for a little less.” Great! What do you think about what Leatherman included in theirs?
This kit is for multi-tool users who don’t want to have to figure out what they might need, or where to source it from.
It’s a convenient starting point, in my opinion, with a mix of reusable, disposable, and consumable tools and supplies.
The blade sharpener, though – you can score the Work Sharp-branded model for quite a bit less at sporting good suppliers.
I hope that Leatherman eventually sells the components separately; I like the look of the case, but I have most of the included cleaning and maintenance tools and supplies already.
This is a logical direction for Leatherman to head into, especially given how popular their tools are with outdoors enthusiasts, hunters, and others who can benefit from regularly maintaining their gear.
