I got a Wave+ with the Heritage deal. I must be lucky, as all the implements are issue-free. Even the file sits pretty center and does not rub the inner side of the handle at all. That begs a question, should I take the plier head of this new toy and swap with a Charge Ti one?

Also, my Wave+ has 6-digit date codes stamped on the inside. Is it to differentiate between plus and pre-plus for warranty purpose?  ???


I would swap that pliers head to charge Ti   :cheers:

I just saw on the Leatherman website that you can now get the aluminum Charge Plus in Black Oxide.

My local outdoors shop was running a sale--though not, perhaps, by US standards. If I subtract our 17% VAT and the 15-20% shipping and handling cost, the price was about $90. I am very happy with the new sheath, though one of the features of all these models with bit holders is, well, the bits, and the new sheath has no room for any. I wish they would stop with the elastic, as it is a wear-point, being distinctly less robust than cordura.  But I can live with all that, and as said, I am very satisfied.

It's been said that man leads a life of quiet desperation. He was probably looking for his pliers. Global Moderator Absolutely No Life Club Posts: 6,569 Ditchfinder General

No one has mentioned that they changed the charge to just be a bigger wave. They have exactly the same tools now. This is pretty dumb

Don't care that much about the Charge aluminum handles so, instead of making a new Charge, LM should have added the 154CM blade and the serrated w/hook to the Wave.

The oldest is a bit loose, as many of the first model became. But it works great.
The serrated blade has no jimping on the spine.

Buying once every decade isn't so extravagant, I don't think.
