Leatherman has announced the launch of a premium multi-tool which will sit at the very top of its range.
Called the ARC, the £260.95 product includes 20 tools and is the first Leatherman to use a MagnaCut steel blade.
MagnaCut, which was developed by an American company called Crucible Industries, is a stainless steel that’s highly regarded for its toughness, edge retention and resistance to corrosion. The blade also has a diamond-like carbon (DLC) carbon coating which adds another layer of corrosion resistance.
Just like the Leatherman Free P4 which we reviewed on this site a few years ago, the ARC, which is said to have taken five years to develop, is designed for one-handed use. Leatherman say that each feature will open smoothly and easily.
The tools include a 2.76-inch blade, needlenose pliers, regular pliers, spring-action scissors, a saw, can and bottle openers, large and small bit drivers, a screw driver, wood and metal file and more.
It also comes with a removable pocket clip, four-pocket nylon sheath, and eight double-ended bits.
You’ll find it retailing at whitbyandco.co.uk and at selected specialist retailers.
