The Unlikely Success Story of the Leatherman Multi-Tool

Today, the Leatherman multi-tool is a worldwide sensation and EDC staple, used in everything from military operations to outdoor adventures. 

But it wasn't always that way.

Tim Leatherman, the founder of the company, spent years in his garage designing the multi-tool only to face skepticism and rejection from everyone in the business.

He endured and overcame, thankfully, and proved them all terribly wrong.

This short documentary film tells his story. It's inspiring and fascinating and frankly, will make you want to pick up a Leatherman for yourself as soon as humanly possible. Sit back and enjoy.
