Many of us have been gifted a multitool: a flimsy, ironically impractical weight that we keep on our car keys and rarely put to good use. Leatherman provides multipurpose tools that make a difference and have been well-loved by hardworking, hands-on enthusiasts for generations. We checked out all of Leatherman’s gift guides to bring you our top picks from each one; read more to find the last-minute gift for anyone that can do anything. 

Everyday Multitool Carry: The Leatherman Skeletool CX

Coming in first from their Everyday Carry Gift Guide, we’re going classic with the Skeletool CX. The Skeletool is a light multitool with essential capabilities, featuring a pocketknife, pliers, bit driver, wire cutters, and more. Plus, it is made from premium 154CM stainless steel for corrosion resistance and toughness. Clip it to your belt or backpack, or keep it on a keychain or in your toolbox — the Skeletool is the namesake of the Leatherman Tool’s reputation for a reason!

Pro Multitool Gift Guide: The Leatherman Surge

The Surge is on the Pro Gift Guide for a reason, providing heavy-duty multipurpose capability while staying true to the compact Leatherman design. While the Surge may be too much for a pocket carry, it’s a great gift choice for those who are often at their workbench or on site. It features one-handed easy access to a knife blade, scissors, file, saw, and more. The blade in the Surge is a sizeable 3.1 inches and is fitted with a unique blade exchanger: a t-shank adapter that can accept standard t-shank blades, allowing you to customize the tool for the task at hand.

The Micra weighs in at less than 2oz and includes ten helpful tools, including spring action scissors, a knife, screwdrivers, and file.
