Mr. Crunch: Leatherman’s First ‘Innovation Garage’ Multitool

Leatherman’s Innovation Garage has just released its first limited-edition multifunction tool. And it’s an explosion from the brand’s drawing board of the past.

When Leatherman launched its PST, a multi-purpose pliers-based tool, it marked the peak of innovation for the time. However, “time” – more precisely 1983 – had its limitations, and some of Tim Leserman’s wish list had to be abolished.

Nearly 40 years ago the Leatherman brand has countless iterations of pocket tools and a host of new technologies to work with. And today within the brand Garage Innovation CenterLeatherman launches Mr. Christ – a disposable multi-tool limited series tool that offers a look at the list of tool ideas from Leatherman.

In essence, Mr. Crunch reinterprets the distinctive feature of the Leatherman multi-tool prototype: pliers. Adding even more functionality to this one tool – the conversion between needle and short pliers – is what if the Leatherman mentality believed that Garage’s innovation would be.

Here’s an immersion inside the Leatherman Mr. Crunch.
