To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Build quality is terrible. Unsheathing the tools is clunky and awkward. The spring action nose pliers are only spring action sometime - never when you need it. I'm already seeing some rust on the pliers. And I haven't even had the sidekick for 2 months and it's barely seen any use as well.
The blade is not as sharp as I imagined. You'd think that a Leatherman would have better quality.
The screwdriver bit is also not removable. Whereas in the other models you can remove and swap the screwdriver with other bits you cannot so it with the sidekick.
As I wouldn't trust this blade to cut things properly I would have preferred to also have scissors.
In hindsight the surge or the wave+ may have been a better choice. Or going with a completely different brand altogether.
In my opinion this is the best bang for your buck. My favourite things about this tool are the pocket clip and the knives being accessible with the pliers closed. These two features alone are worth the purchase. Also Leatherman uses the same quality metal on this product as some of their higher ticketed items. This is the second sidekick I’ve owned. The first I passed on to a friend. If I had an extra $70 to spend on a multi tool I would still buy this one. Only complaint is the Philips screwdriver is a little lame.
The two sections have some play in the design. The blade is sharp but the other tools with it are below average at best. I would rather have a full-size leatherman rather than this wanna be smaller leatherman. Overall a great tool just has a bunch of design flaws that ruined an otherwise decent tool.
Muy contento con la compra me parece una excelente opción de multi herramienta para la persona promedio que no se dedica a la construcción, carpintería o algo parecido y requiere una multi herramienta sencilla, de buena calidad y a un precio razonable. Recomendable para EDC, Day Pack, mantener en el vehículo para alguna situación de emergencia o en casa para reparaciones y tareas diarias
Súper contento, excelente calidad y precio, totalmente recomendado, la navaja tiene bastante filo y los alicates son muy útiles. El único problema es que en la descripción dice que debe de venir con una funda de piel (si buscas en YouTube veras reseñas en las que enseñan esta funda, que por cierto es muy bonita), pero sin embargo llego con una funda de nylon, que aunque es de buena calidad y se ve muy resistente, no es igual de atractiva y bonita que la de piel. A pesar de esto no le pongo una calificación baja, porque la calidad de la herramienta en sì es excelente.
It's a good multi tool, don't get me wrong. But thank god it has a lifetime warranty because the pliers and two of the tools broke within a few months of relatively light use. The blade comes very sharp but dulls VERY quickly.
A very nice tool. I bought this for my nephew who loved it. I'd give it five stars but I own an older, version 1 of this model and the new version doesn't feel quite as substantial in the hand. It's lighter and didn't have quite the same feeling of indestructibility that mine has. I guess they really don't make'em like they used to. Still a great tool but I can't give it five stars based on my own experience with the original.
Algo decepcionado, aun mas por ser leatherman, el clip se agrieto en menos de un mes, solo portandola en la bolsa del pantalon, espero que sea mi suerte :( solamente. Respecto al distribuidor la describen con funda de piel, algo que le da un plus al portarla y me llego con funda de nylon. Por eso le doy dos estrella. Respecto a lo demas filos y funcionalidad exelente.
It's a good product, I love the easy one handed opening and closing of the blades. The pliers are great, and the handles feel good in hand. I like the retention on all the tools, they don't close easily. I did notice a design flaw, however. When you open both of the screwdrivers, then close the pliers, the pliers get stuck. There is also a wobble in the handle when closed, and it makes it feel kind of cheap.
