Leatherman – Super Tool® 300 Multi-Tool, Stainless Steel with Leather Sheath

The Super 300 is a multi-tool with needlenose pliers, regular pliers, 154CM replaceable wire cutters, 154CM replaceable hard-wire cutters, stranded-wire cutters, electrical crimper, wire stripper, 420HC knife, saw, spring-action scissors, awl w/thread loop, ruler (8in, 19cm), can opener, bottle opener, wood/metal file, diamond coated file, blade exchanger, large bit driver, large screwdriver, small screwdriver.

The tool is made of 420 HC stainless steel, which is an improved one. This is high-carbon (HC) form of 420 stainless steel that works well with high production tooling. 420HC’s strength is optimized in  Leatherman multi-tools by heat treatment.

Black oxide is a powder-based metal coating. Ideal for situations where giving away a position would be costly, it is widely used by the military for its effectiveness in reducing glare and reflection.

This clamp has a really good mouth because of all the holes in the handle and the blade. Once you unfold it, we realize that the handle’s shape is really thought through and it’s comfortable to use.

The clamp is entirely correct, the cutter works against by not coming to the end of a wire fence.

The wire stripper works great and so does the  electrical connector. The belt clip must be to put the other side, but if you unscrewed something, pay extra attention

The blade of this tools is the most impressive part. It’s also smooth and it cuts. Small flat, the holes tend to fill up small pieces of what you cut. However, the strength does not have to be too much because the blade is not full. The toothed part fulfills its office, during a move and it’s ideal for cutting attachment straps in a truck.

The blade has a locking system in open position that takes force to fold it back again. There is a storage place in the handle for a second nozzle.

The versatility of the screwdriver is a great idea and the four provided heads are more than enough.

One small idea: the carabiner may be used also as a bottle opener, just like the label suggests. By the way, it works like that also!

The tweezer comes in a labeled  black Leatherman case. On the inside, an elasticated place keeps the tools tightly, but there’s enough space for other small items, depending on your needs.

The pros:

  • The looks are amazing
  • The blade cuts through everything faster than a knife
  • It’s easy to clean up
  • The case is well made

The cons:

  • There aren’t many tools
  • The price is on the high end
  • The holes in the blade catch some dirt or dust in time…
