Leatherman Surge Full Size Multi-Tool, Black, MOLLE Sheath - 830278



LM830278: Surge


The Leatherman Surge is one of our two largest multi-tools; a real powerhouse, built with our largest pliers, longest multi-tool blades and easy-to-use locks. A unique blade exchanger, replaceable 154CM wire cutters and four outside-opening blades give you quick access to the tools you use most. The Surge was built for tough jobs and the hands that do them.

Changes for the 2014 Leatherman Surge:

The biggest or at least most notable item is the replaceable hardened wire cutters in the jaws of the pliers. The plier jaws have also been redesigned to be stronger to allow more torque to be put on the handles without damage. Finally, the replaceable file uses standard t-shank attachment point so any hardware store jigsaw blade, file or cutting tool will fit the new Surge greatly expanding the possible uses.

I’m impressed
I have the first leatherman,the wave,the squirt & the micra now this.This is my new edc,I love it.The hex driver with the extra bit kit sold me,plus a sewing awl & replaceable wire cutters is a great addition.It first left my hands black but a wash with dawn and a new oiling left it perfect.The sheath is ok for the tool & the extra file & saw,but I need the premium leather sheath for the extra bits,I may buy a after market sheath from naysleather.All in all I’m very happy with this tool,thank you again knifecenter for the fast service,you guys rock!!!

Leatherman never disappoints
The Surge was purchased to go with my EDC bag that I keep in the car. I constantly find instances where I need something with the utility of it during the day. I purchased a bit kit also so it makes it versatile and useful. Leatherman uses good materials in making their tools and backs them up if you ever have a problem. I have actually damaged tools in the past and a quick trip to the company store in Portland has resulted in excellent customer service and a happy resolution of my stupidity.I honestly can’t think of any negative information or things I would change about the Surge.
