Tim Leatherman

The Leatherman Story


Out in Oregon, Leatherman are used to getting things done - you could call it their pioneering spirit. It’s just how they do things. It’s the reason Tim Leatherman built his first multi-purpose tool, and why Leatherman Tool Group has made a promise to their community to stay local. Why? Well, Leatherman are proud to support U.S. workers who are dedicated to the quality craftsmanship that goes into each of their original American multi-tools, just like their founder.

 

The Mother of Invention

The Mother of Invention


Back home in the states, Tim set to work developing and patenting his idea. Shortly after his return he partnered with college friend Steve Berliner to continue building concepts and reaching out to potential prospects for sales. On the 5th July 1983, Tim and Steve officially incorporated Leatherman Tool Group, Inc. based on a few simple, but fundamental principles: manufacture the highest quality products that deliver excellent value to the consumer, while providing good, living-wage jobs to the local workforce. It was in that same year, after nearly a decade of knocking on doors and perfecting his idea, that they sold the very first Pocket Survival Tool (PST). And as the story goes...the rest is history.

 

 

 

Leatherman FactoryThirty Years Later...


Thirty years later Leatherman are still going strong in the U.S. crafting the famous multi-tools and knives that can endure just about anything and come back to work tomorrow. Although Tim is now retired, his American spirit of ingenuity, innovation and quality craftsmanship still thrives in all of us. When asked about the company's devotion to quality, Tim always replies, "It has to be perfect; my name is on every tool."
