Leatherman’s Latest Lightweight Multi-Tool Was Inspired By The Original PST

Although pliers-style pocket tools are pretty ubiquitous throughout EDC culture these days, that wasn’t always the case. In fact, prior to Leatherman’s launch of the PST back in 1983, such a concept didn’t even exist. However, since that time, the Portland-based brand has effectively cornered the market, continuously innovating upon its tried and true multi-tool design and releasing a range of offerings fit for every application.

The latest addition to the Leatherman lineup comes in the form of the ‘Bond,’ a capable 14-tool piece inspired by the original PST. So, while its name might not bear any connection to a certain steely-eyed British spy, it does offer a minimalist package with all of the functionality a secret agent could want. Weighing just 5.8oz and made from 420HC stainless steel, it includes two pairs of pliers, some wire cutters, and a knife, as well as a file, a ruler, and an assortment of standard screwdrivers. Top it off with details like an ergonomic grip, a lanyard hole, and pocket clip compatibility, and the result is a tool that honors tradition whilst improving on its predecessors. It’s available now for $50.

Purchase: $50
