The Surge caught my eye while perusing EDCDepot and I decided to give it a shot. I like the Wave type styling that seems to be very prevalent in the current offerings from Leatherman, so I decided to see what it was like in person. I also wanted to see how it differed from the Wave, one of my favorite models
An unforgettable classic, the PST II was the follow up to the immensely popular original Leatherman Pocket Survival Tool (PST).
The PST II is a handy, compact tool.
The two smallest models in the Juice series are the C2 and S2. Both models seem to perform better than many full sized multitools, and seem quite sturdy, despite their small size. They are truly a large tool in a small package.

The Leatherman Kick is an interesting tool- a little smaller than the original PST, but at a fraction of the weight. The Kick is the smallest of a series of three tools from Leatherman, the other two being the Fuse and the Blast.
Leatherman's Lightweight Offering, the Kick
The Supertool for the longest time has been the largest and strongest of their multitool line; people swore by it and would use nothing else for professional use on the job.
Perhaps the largest Leatherman made, the SuperTool was a giant among multitools
With the success of Leatherman’s PST and PST II models it was only a matter of time before the latter became an item to be thrown back to the multitool leaders drawing board with ways of how they could make their most popular tool even better.
Tim Leatherman constantly gets feedback from his customers about his products; and he listens, he is always looking to make his tools better and more user friendly for the public. This tool is 100% customer feedback driven, and a perfect example of how someone in the business should listen to their customers and further drive the creativity that flows into making ideas reality. Customers were most interested in tools that open via the tool being closed and blades that could open one handed, and to once and for all kill the painful hand hurting handles of Leathermans past.
The Wave is one of the nicer looking tools available
