In 1975, Tim Leatherman was looking for a tool that didn’t exist. So, he decided to build one. Tim headed to the garage with a few sketches and an idea to create what was in his mind. For eight years, Tim built, tested, broke, and engineered a host of prototypes and parts that ultimately didn’t make it to production. Even the name of his patented prototype—Mr. Crunch—was changed in favor of the now-famous “Leatherman.”
The Leatherman Mr. Crunch is a limited-edition multi-tool that includes the slip-on pliers from Tim’s original prototype that didn’t make it into the PST. This tool can be opened and operated with one hand. This enables the user to keep the other hand free for situations that require multi-tasking or a free hand. It has a removable pocket clip and 21 tools.
Designed and manufactured just like all of their tools in Portland, Oregon.
