Leatherman multi-tools: Blast

By: Leatherman  09-12-2011
Keywords: Wire Cutters

Loaded with our most requested features, the Leatherman Blast is ready for work. Longer blades mean easier slicing, sawing, filing and more, while Zytel® handle inserts provide a comfortable, reliable grip. New designs for the handles and pliers help Blast sustain more than double the squeezing load of the original PST. With the Blast, even small hands can get themselves around the biggest jobs comfortably.
