To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Leatherman have released a limited-edition 24 carat gold multi-tool for a cool $500. Who says DIY repair can't be glamorous, eh?
We're big fans of Leatherman here at Lifehacker — so much so that the company took out all five slots in our Top 5 Best Multi-Tools article. However, we think we'd probably draw the line at a gold-plated version, although that may be because we're not hip enough.
The Leatherman 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition 24K Gold Charge TTi is a 19-in-1 tool that comes with pliers, hard-wire cutters, strippers and crimpers, a diamond-coated file, large and small bit drivers (with Phillips and Flat Tip Eyeglasses Screwdriver Bit, Hex 5/32, Hex 1/16in and .050, Square Drive #2 and #3, Screwdriver 1/8in and Torx #15, Philips #1-2 and Screwdriver 3/16in), a 19cm ruler, a bottle opener, an S30V stainless steel clip point knife, scissors and a serrated knife with cutting hook.
The 24K gold body is also inscribed with the signature of Leatherman's founder Tim Leatherman’s, plus a Leatherman sheath. Buyers will also receive a "unique gift box" and a 30th birthday Leatherman lapel pin.
We can't say that we approve of such gaudy DIY bling-bling, but if you like to fix things in style, this multi-tool is pretty hard to beat. Pay a visit to Leatherman's website for more information.
