Sorry but the lame camo look is just too redneck for me. Not sure it’s worth the extra money.
It’s not for me either, but a lot of people like camo color schemes. To each their own.
Surely calling something “too redneck” must be some kind of “ism”? The comments below relating to impracticality of such a colour scheme perfectly valid being snide and belittling other people on the grounds you believe yourself to be superior is not.
Loosen those tight panties bud. I thought tool freaks would be less prone to offense after dropping hammers on their toes over the years.
Good manners prevent me from giving you the reply you deserve.
If you have such a low opinion of “tool freaks” why are you trolling on this website are you a weekend as well as a keyboard warrior?
What’s with the “redneck” comment? Is that a racist remark against my people? Natives…did you know the Ramapough peoples roots go back over a 1000 years to the lenape tripe? They live in the poor mountainous region.
Because ones skin is not white or doesn’t live in a lavish home , there’s certainly no need for berating my people , natives, which we’re called that and more .it’s bad enough seeing the term ” Redskin” used by pro teams or the Indian symbol.
Referring to ones heritage and making fun of ones modest existence is not cool.
I think my people have suffered enough throughout history without more insults…and if your referring to poor people in the south ,that’s just as bad…. although natives have suffered the most in history…..
Just say you don’t like the tool.
My sensitivity to the comment probably stems from the use of the word culchie by the inhabitants of Dublin in reference to those from the countryside and not in a positive way, in fact they also throw “hillbillies” at those from the Northwest such as myself and bogtrotters at those from the Midlands.
In this case the comment was just a superficial attempt to be smartarese there were legitimate criticisms to be made.
I remember asking my father as a small child why the Irish do not tell jokes about the English and he said we do not mock the afflicted.
Im a proud REDNECK. Oilfield trash.
A man after my own heart.
I have a vintage camo with matching sheath that’s coated for rust and never been used. Oh it’s worth it my friend they only go UP in value and some view these babies as investments in GOLD. I guard mine with my life. Someone is itching to get it…
So… you accidentally drop it while hiking through dense brush, then spend the next umpteen minutes trying to find this wonderful camo-colored tool that you paid so much for. Really?

“self hiding multi-tool”
I can’t get around the idea of dropping this thing on the ground, especially in the early morning or late afternoon, and having a hard time finding it in the field. I’d prefer it with orange or red handles.
Hi-Viz orange with that new holographic material they use in road signs, so when you drop it in the woods, you can find it with a flashlight.
Better yet make it glow in ultra violet light like these wiha bits:
Or put a bluetooth tracker on it
That is cool.
Is there anything available in spray form that I could apply to any existing tools, keys, etc.
This is make it useful to find stuff that I misplaced.
(I never say lost, as I usually just misplace things until I find them gain 😉 )
After spending a weekend in the crawlspace I would definitely accept more of this concept in my life,
Hi-viz version definitely would be more useful.
From a collector’s view point these are really neat. It is a different variation of the same tool. The cool camo factor of also helps sell it. I’ve already seen some collectors lamenting the fact that these new camo versions devalue the old ones, but if you didn’t get one of the first round, it gives you an opportunity to add this variation to your collection. Since it isn’t any different toolwise it is strictly a collector’s item for most.
Nice.. But not $180 nice
From the more expensive Titanium handled model there is only the color difference that I can see. and like others said from a useability point of view – hell no.
I’d prefer to see safety orange on there – options for other colors even. I think I might buy the original Charge + which has mostly the same features but a different blade material, the same cutters and an AL handle while costing 40 or so less. I use an older pattern wave now. But I’d love that AL handle to be something other than black.
Yeah, can’t see these being lost in the woods! Lol
Definitely a display/collector’s item to me.

The last thing I need is as camoflaged multi-tool. I once lost a multi-tool ON MY DESK!
Well, if you’re desk is like mine, that’s not hard to imagine….
This is all too common I’m afraid…
Not for me, but I do hope they continue with adding a couple color choices. Yeah, ultimately it’s a tool and doesn’t matter but I’d be tempted by a burnt orange or a blue. That said I still can’t justify the extra cost over a wave in any case.
I’m not a fan of camo and so this wouldn’t be for me. From a practical standpoint- this seems like it was designed to get lost at first drop.
180 bucks ? Are people nuts ?
Leatherman website sale 40% off on the TTI Camo !!….Purchased last week for $108 with free shipping.
I like that not only are the handles camo so it’s fully camouflaged when closed, but the sheath is camo too – so whether you drop the tool itself or the tool + sheath together, you won’t be able to find it.
To each their own, maybe, but if you buy this and drop it, you deserve the time taken off your life looking for it.
It’s too bad manufactuers are going down this road and catering to camo buyers for a few quick sales, rather than just making solid tools with the same finish and keeping the price low and the quality high.
I think they already do just that. This just is not that. It’s a side business. Line extension. Whatever you want to call.
Like the Red Bull Wera I believe tool sets.
The Red Bull Wera tool sets would make sense if Red Bull was paying people to advertise for them on their tools.
Two points the first being could this knife be the equivalent of what is known in the UK as a Chelsea Tractor (an expensive four wheel drive vehicle which rarely leaves the city and never the road and whose owners legend has it spray mud on them so it looks “real”), second if I remember correctly Wera have a sponsor type role with Red Bull racing.
Metal detectorists love these.
Wow. This post was like talking politics. Got the juices flowing! Let’s think practical and political, theirs something made for everyone. That’s the beauty of our era, so many choices. I respect everyone’s free will…. God bless you all.
I really question camouflage on a tool that will be used outdoors, and surely will get dropped, slip off of something, …
It is already hard enough to find bits and pieces, regular tools, etc depending on terrain … when attempting a field repair, that the last thing I’d want on a multitool is a camouflage. Let alone as an upgrade.
It appears to have a matte finish, which is important while deer hunting as one flash of reflected sunlight can ruin your hunt. The gut hook appears a little too small, but I don’t have one in hand, it may still be useful for unzipping the paunch.
The outside access knife is essential if you find yourself dangling from your treestand safety harness.
By the way, if you drop it while deer hunting, chances are high it’ll be resting on brown leaves. That’s why my chosen camo patterns are predominantly grey (hardwood tree bark) and brown (leaves). But any camo pattern is better than bright/shiny.
I’m guessing they’ll sell a lot of these.
absolutely no interest in a camo version amd i hunt. i would love one of those colored skeletools. preferably the tan one.
and ya, call me a hillbilly or red neck all day long. i have been called much worse.
$180? Seriously? It would be cheaper if you bought all of the individual tools separately. There’s not even $30 worth of titanium here. 90 percent of the tool is made of stainless steel. I’m having a hard time seeing $180 worth of tools and materials here. How much does the name Leatherman account for the cost? Why would anyone think it’s a good idea to design a $180 pair of pliers and make them camouflage? You stand a good chance of losing these in your front yard, nevermind out in the woods. Ingenious. What makes Leatherman so special that the exact same multitools made by other brands cost significantly less?
I agree with the “hi-viz is better” mentality. I was working on an antenna tower and when I got on the ground something orange caught my eye. Then I went over and picked up my Spyderco rescue that had fallen out of my pocket.
