Updated Classic Multi-Tool

Leatherman has come up big with its new addition to its long-trusted multi-tool line. The Leatherman Charge ALX is a rugged and sleek tool that has been more useful to me than any other personal multi-tool IÌve ever used on the job. The Charge ALX comes with the standard complement of needle-nose pliers, knives and saws, and some great extras: The serrated blade features a hooked seatbelt slicer at the tip, adding to your cutting options. In addition to the blade variations, the Charge ALX has two large and one small bit driver in the handle. These substantial bit holders are solid enough to take a good amount of torque, usually the downfall of a multi-tool. Numerous double-headed driver options are contained in a separate pouch. These features, along with a comfortable grip and optional pocket clip or lanyard loop, make for a great personal tool.
