Below you will find a specific review of each of the nine tools which make up the Leatherman Squirt PS4 Multitool.

Spring Action Needle Nose Pliers

Built for small spaces or smaller items, the spring action needle nose pliers allow the user to pinch, hold, and manipulate smaller objects. By incorporating the spring action design, hand fatigue is minimized due to less required grip as the needle nose pliers automatically spring back into the open setting when not being utilized.

Spring Action Regular Pliers

Created for utilization on larger items than the spring action needle nose pliers but still operating on the same arm, the spring action regular pliers can also hold, pinch, and manipulate items, built to operate on items larger than needle nose plier use.

Spring Action Wire Cutters

The spring action wire cutters utilize bypassing blades which allows the user to cut through regular gauge wire far more effectively than with an open blade. The spring action wire cutters also use the spring action technology developed with the pliers on the multitool to reduce hand fatigue by also returning, automatically, to the open position when not in use.

420 HC Knife

This high carbon stainless steel blade is resistant to corrosion and has a small enough blade to be used in a higher number of settings, especially when space is at a premium. The blade length, itself, is an optimal 1.6 inches.

Spring Action Scissors

Perhaps the best use of the spring action technology, the spring action scissors require only half the effort of scissors that are not equipped to automatically return to an open positioning. These scissors are perfect for cutting thinner materials such as paper, string, and other similar items.

Combination Flathead and Phillips Head Screwdriver

The combination flathead and phillips head screwdriver is made from 420 HC stainless steel and is ideal for use with phillips or small slotted screws.

Bottle Opener

Designed to be unobtrusive but highly effective, the bottle opener is developed on its own arm, only protrudes out from the unit slightly and allows the user to enjoy a bottle beverage wherever they may be.

Wood and Metal File

Using 420 HC stainless steel, the surface of this tool is crisscrossed to create a rough outer surface perfect for filing or smoothing metal and/or wood. The filing patter goes down the edge and also extends to the end of the tool allowing for a more precise filing.

Medium Screwdriver

This screwdriver is flat edged and designed from 420 HC stainless steel. It is intended for medium sized screws.

The Case

The case is developed from 6061-T6 hard-anodized aluminum which is a heat treatable and aero-grade aluminum alloy that is lightweight but very durable.
