And that is my point (and was Grants) that MTO as a whole should at least be given a nod if they were the inspiration for a change...

I for one look FORWARD to finally having a ballpoint pen in my Wave's scales, and while it's strange that they're putting a tiny flathead screwdriver in the Wave's corkscrew (which I can't seem to find), since it already has one in it's small bit holder, I GUESS it's a good idea? I don't know where they plan to put the straight pin, though.

Wait... What does Leatherman MEAN by 'Plus'? :D

Well, just got it and returned it. Really bad QC. File doesn’t lock up well and the blade lockup is super late.

That is very dissapointing, kinda shocked those pliers are going to hold up too.

I really really hope it's just a dud but only time will tell.

Could you take more photos of the plier head before you send it back?

Was the new Molle nylon sheath included or a leather sheath? Asking because their ad say "leather sheath" but the show the new nylon with a snap-on button :think:

Had a gift card burning a whole in my pocket, ordered the black wave plus.  :think:

We will see if it’s a bust or not. :-\  I sure hope it isn’t.

Will update.

Hey Gfan! Did you get the Wave Plus?... or did you change your mind?

Just received mine today. For me, having those cutters is huge. This will definitely share time with the rebar now. The outer walls do seem thin, but if it breaks, it will head back to be fixed. I’m not to worried about it. I know anything can happen, but I always try to use my MT’s appropriately. So hopefully it won’t be an issue.

This one came with the black molle sheath.

Well it's on pre-order in the UK and as suspected the price is eye watering

Yes... Heinnie declares these to be part of the "Heritage collection" and puts them in special leather sheaths - this may explain the high price at least in part. Does that happen with the offerings in the US too?

I still have my reservations about the pliers. Also, if QC is that poor (see Gadgetman's post), the price seems way over the top.

Meaning say these are limited quantity or going to replace the existing model? Hmm.. Anyway, SHOT show is today. We'll see...

Nice knife, I am eyeing the Charge+. How is the new sheath?

The sheath is the same smaller black molle as they have had for awhile. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of it. I’ve had one wear out pretty quick. I think I’m going to use the older style, nylon rectangle one.

Thanks :cheers:


As of last night, the wave was off LM’s site, just had the plus.

I’ve already returned the Charge so no more pics. Sorry. The sheath that came with the Charge was the new sheath but frankly kind of cheap. Nylon with a snap but no way to carry it horizontally. Overall, just not well done. Especially for the price. I really hope Leatherman fixes these issues. They can make an excellent product. It’s just hit or miss right now.

Not on https://www.leatherman.de...s/large-multi-tools/wave/ yet (i.e. in Germany).

Oops - correction - when you use the link to Buy It the results are only a black oxide old Wave w/Molle sheath available - which is then declared "unavailable in your country". That is just SO inconsistent... :rant:

Everything you need to know on the Wave.

Including the new sheath overview

He notes the terrible QC, as expected.

the production model would have "+" stamped on scales. Hopefully the QC would be improved.

ALX is no more, the AL would have additional cutting hook on serrated blade. No other changes made.
