The Leatherman Wave Plus is the further developed version of the Leatherman Wave. A super handy multi-tool that has been improved in a few crucial areas compared to the popular Leatherman Wave. The main points are the much improved belt sheath and the interchangeable wire cutters in the pliers.
With very manageable dimensions, the Leatherman Wave+ is equipped with a large number of practical and functional tools. All tools are locked when unfolded. 2 blades, the file and saw can be used without opening the Wave.
You open the pliers by folding the handles. The jaw is equipped with small teeth that provide extra grip. The tip is small enough for very precise work, such as bending fishhooks or removing splinters. The back of the mouth is rounded to make it easier to maneuver in tight spaces and to bend wire around with ease. The pliers are equipped with an interchangeable wire cutter. This makes it possible to re-sharpen the cutting edges separately, or to replace them with new ones when they are really worn out. The wire cutter is also suitable for cutting small twigs and stems. A good pair of pliers comes in handy surprisingly often!
Knife with smooth blade
The drop point shaped blade is made of 420HC stainless steel. This stainless steel contains more carbon than normal 420 steel. This addition keeps the knife sharp longer. The blade shape is suitable for almost all cutting jobs. You can easily open the blade with one hand from the outside of the tool with the help of the thumb hole. The sharpened length of the blade is approximately 7 cm and the blade is sharpened at 15 degrees. Because the blade is only 2.5 mm thick, it cuts really great.
Knife with serrated blade
This blade is also made of 420HC stainless steel. This knife has a sturdy point thanks to the ‘sheepfoot’-shaped blade. This means that the blade is not very pointed, so that the edge has more support from the spine of the blade. This blade shape is especially great for opening boxes. The cartels certainly help with this too! In addition, the serrations are great for cutting fiber-rich materials. This includes rope. The sharpened length of the blade is approximately 7.5 cm and the blade is sharpened at 16 degrees. This blade is also about 2.5mm thick on the back.
The sturdy teeth cover about 6.5 cm from the saw blade. Branches up to wrist thickness are therefore no problem. The saw is thin. The back is about 1mm thick and the teeth 1.2mm thick. Because the back is narrower than the saw teeth, the saw does not bite into the wood and friction is limited. In addition to living wood, this saw also makes short work of pallets and planks. The Wave is a godsend during gardening and DIY!
The file has two sides. One side has a diamond coating for sharpening. Handy to quickly sharpen an ax in the field, for example. However, due to the coarse sharpening, it is less suitable for sharpening knives. The other side has a metal file. Among other things, very suitable for deburring steel.

A multi-tool should just work. Leatherman is committed to that. In addition to making a sturdy tool, Leatherman gives a 25-year warranty on product and material defects.
Leatherman Wave+ Sheath
With this sturdy sheath you can hang the Wave on your belt. It is closed by a remarkably strong press stud and in terms of material Leatherman has gone for solid ballistic nylon. The sides are slightly elastic and provide stretch in the sheath.
