“Over the past three and a half decades, we have empowered our customers around the world to solve problems and in many cases to save the day. Now in 2019, we are reinventing the category Tim invented 35 years ago with the introduction of Leatherman FREE, a collection of tools that will take Leatherman and its users’ experience to the next level.” Ben Rivera, CEO Leatherman Tool Group
THE FREE COLLECTION
Leatherman FREE is the brand’s most extensive product launch since the introduction of the PST 35 years ago. The collection will feature the P-Series,a pliers-based multitool, the T-Series, a pocket tool designed for everyday carry functionality and finally the K-Series, a multipurpose knife.
Leatherman’s design team spent five year developing never-before-used technology with premium materials, creating an entirely new experience for multipurpose users. The team relied on the years and years of customer feedback and insight as a foundation for product innovation. The new collection features multiple design patents, is made in the USA in Leatherman’s factory in Portland, OR, and comes with Leatherman’s industry-leading 25-year guarantee.
WHAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT?
The Leatherman FREE collection features a first-of-its kind architecture. The key to the new architecture is integrated magnets, making it easier for users to open, handle, and close the tools, eliminating the need for nail nicks. Plus, the internal locking system utilizes an all-new elastomer, reducing wear and tear on the implements, making the tools within the FREE series more durable than ever before.
Leading the collection launch, the Leatherman P-Series contains Leatherman’s iconic pliers-based design with enhanced FREE technology. The new series is made of 420 steel to create a lightweight, durable multipurpose tool.
The outside features the eye-catching aesthetic and design of FREE, and the inside features a revolutionary magnetic architecture that allows each tool open and close seamlessly. Leatherman engineers designed the tool so that all implements are easily accessible from the outside, for one-handed opening. Individual implements no longer require a fingernail to access and deploy. Additionally, the new architecture also provides epic haptics and a distinct clicking noise to provide auditory confirmation that the tool is open and ready for use.
We’re very excited to unveil this product and help you tell the story of FREE. We’ve assembled a comprehensive toolkit, full of assets to help enrich your story, as well as detailed specs for the P2 and P4.
