Below, we will review each to the specific tools featured within the Leatherman Wingman Multitool.

Spring Action Needle Nose Pliers

Designed with spring action technology that automatically returns the pliers to the opened position when not in use allowing for less hand fatigue by the user, the spring action needle nose pliers are perfect for holding, twisting, and manipulating smaller items, especially within confined spaces.

Spring Action Regular Pliers

Built into the same arm as the spring action needle nose pliers, but positioned behind the needle nose are the regular pliers which operate with the same process as the needle nose but are ideal for holding, twisting, and manipulating items larger than the needle nose pliers.

Spring Action Wire Cutters

Designed with bypassing blades which make cutting regular gauge wire far easier than with the use of an open blade, the spring action wire cutters also use the spring action technology that automatically returns the tool to the open position when not in use, making the cutting process far simpler.

Wire Stripper

Built into the unit as an additional, quite useful notch, this piece strips wires, making the Leatherman Wingman Multitool optimal for numerous electrical jobs.

420 HC Combo Knife

With both a half serrated edge and half straight edge, this combo knife is built using stainless steel which is resistant to corrosion and can be used on a variety of materials. The straight edge is optimal for normal precision cuts while the serrated edge can be utilized for cutting fibers and other similar materials. The full blade length is 2.6 inches.

Spring Action Scissors

These scissors are best for cutting thin materials such as string or paper and with spring action technology, the cutting is far simpler as the tool returns automatically to the open position, making the cutting process even quicker.

Package Opener

Designed to quickly and easily open difficult packages, this tool effectively allows the user to get into packaged pieces and through hard-to-open materials like packing tape.


This handy addition allows users to precisely measure up to 1.5 inches or 3.8 centimeters.

Can Opener

Designed strategically in a way that allows the user to open cans while pushing the serrated, sharp edge of the can lid down and away from the user’s hand, this lever/punch style tool is perfect for camping.

Bottle Opener

This tool allows the user to easily pop the top off any bottled beverage.

Wood and Metal File

With a crisscross design to create a rough edge ideal for filing and smoothing wood and/or metal, this tool is crafted out of 420 HC stainless steel for precision use.

Phillips Head Screwdriver

Designed specifically for use on phillips head screws.

Medium Screwdriver

Created out of 420 HC stainless steel, the medium screwdriver is built specifically for medium sized screws.

Small Screwdriver

Designed with the same 420 HC stainless steel material used for the medium screwdriver, the small screwdriver operates in the same fashion but is built for smaller sized screws.

The Case/Unit

The full unit is expertly designed to effectively and efficiently provide a variety of tools which can be used for any occasion. The entire unit, when closed, only measures 3.8 inches in length and an incredibly light 7 ounces.

In short, the Leatherman Wingman is one of the best multitools available on the market today, with excellent function at a low price.
