A Value-Priced Multi-Tool Doesn’t Have To Mean Made Overseas
Portland, OR –-(Ammoland.com)- Today the two fastest growing segments in the multi-tool industry are the $20-$50 and $100+ (specialty-tool) price points.
Drivers for this $20-50 price point are primarily first-time buyers looking for value AND design, without sacrificing brand.
Leatherman is introducing two fresh, new solutions – the Sidekick and Wingman – for the stale design and lower quality of the current entry-level tools on the market. Both new models are densely- packed with a contemporary design that’s attractive to a wide variety of first-time multi-tool buyers at only $29.99 MSRP. ($39.99 Sidekick).
A Return to Roots Now more than ever, there is pervasive call for the return to our Made-in-the-USA roots—a sense of pride, honest work and that pioneering spirit that makes us so resilient and self-sufficient. Even for the value-priced Sidekick and Wingman, Leatherman has no plans to move its Portland, Oregon manufacturing.
Feature Rich The Sidekick and Wingman are 420 stainless steel and feature Leatherman’s popular outside- accessibility design for one-handed opening of the knife blade. A first on any Leatherman tool the Sidekick and Wingman have sprung jaws. Also included will be; a saw, file, knife, scissors, screwdrivers, bottle/can opener, serrated knife, clam-package opener, removable pocket clip, saw and wire cutters . Exact tool set varies depending on the model.
Both models are just shy of four inches making them the perfect pocket-carry size. Like all Leatherman tools, the Sidekick and Wingman are backed by an industry-leading, no-hassle, 25-year warranty. Models will begin shipping worldwide in September 2011 just in time for the holidays.
