My 01/02 Wave is still my favorite LM and I use it, in one way or another, just about every day!

Many other Leatherman tools have come and gone, but the OG Wave (and PST) will stay with me forever.

Thank you, Poncho. What you can’t see in the pic is the signs of years of use n abuse. Haha

One of the handles got weld splatter once. I used a die grinder to take it off. I wasn’t very patient or proficient with it and it shows.

It’s been sent back to Leatherman twice. Once for broken plier jaws ( buddy borrowed it and used it to align a car motor with its motor mounts! ) and once for a broken Phillips driver.

They tried to send me a new Wave (back when the OG Wave was still the new Wave...) but I told them I wanted MINE back.

If something were to break nowadays, I’d just source the parts to fix. Too sentimental to ever send back to Leatherman.

Nice shot.  :like:

Wave + Nitize clip  :tu:

May I ask how long have you had the Nitize clip attached to your Wave?

Maybe three years??  Still stuck on there and not showing any signs of coming off. But to be honest, I rarely carry it. Usually just setting in a drawer. I use it a lot at home, just don’t carry it.
