Drawings from a Leatherman Design Consultant
on: September 26, 2022, 05:49:22 PM
Thought that this was interesting. From the site:

I was part of the team that developed the key initiatives and early concepts for the upcoming FREE P2 and P4 multi-tools. Critical differentiators that made it to production include one-hand-opening pliers, no nail nicks (the "No Digging" initiative!), and epic haptics. The final industrial design ultimately took another path, but shown below are the concepts left on the cutting room floor. Note the use of magnets. :D

It is a shame how many good ideas/concepts never make it to manufacturing.

I wonder if that is the new rumored snip scissors pictured on the “Built” model?

I bet the tiger stripe this designer wanted is the reason his designs did not make the cut  :whistle:
