Product Description

Fuse puts portability at the forefront of your need to be prepared.
Built on a slimmer chassis than Blast, the Leatherman Fuse comes with the same all-blades locking blade system, Zytel handle inserts, durable pliers and larger wire cutters. One-at-a-time blade selection gets you just the tool you want.

Fuse's twelve tools include Leatherman's extra-long knife blade and three extended screwdrivers for reaching into tighter places. Scissors have beveled edges and grip fine objects. They're tough enough to slice through plastic and cloth, yet smooth enough to glide through paper.

The matt finish black oxidized Fuse comes with a sturdy black nylon sheath.

My Review
This is the perfect multi tool for anyone going into the outdoors. I have particularly liked it for backpacking. They haven't added any unneeded tools so you don't carry extra weight. I have found the scissors very useful, more than i originally thought I would. They can be compared to those really precise, quality scissors that doctors use.

It feels great in my hand. The synthetic contoured grip is great, especially when you are trying to hold something firmly in the players. It does not separate from the metal either. Like the locks, they are easy to use, even with gloves on. Gives me a lot of security than a blade will not snap onto my fingers.

I like this tool in my climbing bag too. A carbiner fits through the appropriate clip, but I haven't found I like it hanging from my harness.

Reliable,durable, useful, and ergonomic.
