Leatherman Pliers with Replaceable Wire Cutters

Many Leatherman tools include pliers as the primary tool. It is usually a combination needle-nose and standard pliers tool, with fine gripping teeth near the tip, and more jagged teeth closer to the pivot. There is also a soft wire cutter even closer to the pivot, and usually a hard-wire cutting notch right at the pivot. Because the wire cutters are often the first implement to wear out, newer Leatherman models allow them to be replaced.

Leatherman Pliers

The Leatherman pliers are full-sized, and can be used to grip, pry or compress just about anything. They are significantly more powerful and useful than the Victorinox pliers. Leatherman pliers range in size from 40mm to 60mm (2.5" to 3.5"), depending on the overall size of the tool.

All Leatherman pliers include soft-wire cutters, which can cut copper and other soft materials. Most also include a hard-wire cutting notch, designed to shear the wire rather than slice it.

With the newer pliers, you can simply unscrew the wire cutters and replace them when they become worn.
