Leatherman FREE T4

Most user-friendly multitool

Brand: Leatherman Knife Reviews

Model: FREE T4

Our take You’ll never break a nail opening the T4, thanks to Leatherman’s new magnetic locking system. The tools open by simply pushing a single divot on the top of the housing (it’s stiff enough to not release in your pocket); magnets keep the individual tools in place, but you can deploy each one using only one hand. Even though it’s smaller than a granola bar, the T4 is packed with 12 functions, including three screwdrivers, tweezers, a file, a 2-inch knife, scissors, and a pry tool.

Trail cred “The oversized scissors neatly cut through thick paracord for my bear hang in California’s Inyo National Forest,” one tester says. 4.3 oz.
