16 tools in and worlds first full sizesd one handed total multi-tool. For years multi-tool users could choose from two distinct options when it came to a "one-hand-operable" multi-tool: one-hand-opening pliers OR one-hand-opening blades. Today, Leatherman has taken these two well-loved ideas and fused them into the first ever, 100% one-hand-operable multi-tool, the Leatherman OHT. This industry-first tool features spring-loaded pliers and wire-cutters so you don't tire your hand adjusting and readjusting your grip. Handles with visual imprints of the tool beneath make for quick identification. A lifesaving strap cutter and oxygen bottle wrench, threading for common-size cleaning rods and much more make this a one-handed workhorse of a tool.
Leatherman multi purpose tools are designed with a simple philosophy in mind - getting things done. Their usefulness is endless. From the basic pocket tools to the elaborate multi tools, Leatherman delivers the highest quality knives and multitools, backed by their “no-questions-asked” 25 year warranty.
Leatherman tools are designed with the outdoor enthusiast in mind from the Tread and Skeletool to the Charge and OHT these products cater for everyone from boy-scouts to tactical experts.
Worth the weightBy: Nicholas on 4 June 2017This is probably the heaviest of Leatherman tools I've owned so far. It feels sturdy, well balanced and has a smooth sliding action to retract the pliers - speaking of which, I expected to have a more stiffer spring action. For its size and weight it could have accommodated more tools but the ones they have equipped are probably among the most commonly used. So far I've used it to tighten knots, cut and bend wire and detach those damned MALICE clips from MOLLE webbing (small screwdriver fits perfectly into the square slots to lift tabs). I reckon it's a good tool if your looking for a tough set of pliers that can take a beating.

By: Adam on 11 September 2016Of all the Leatherman military series multi tools the OHT (one hand tool) packs the greatest utility punch for the tradie or home handyman. Equip with only the essentials it is a well balanced and functional tool. It's comfortable in the hand without the discomfort associated with operating the pliers of other multi tools. The slide mechanism of the pliers takes some getting used to but once you've mastered it you'll never want another multi tool again. Get it you won't regret it.
Leatherman OHT ReviewBy: Tyler on 17 February 2016I was dubious about the OHT style opening of the pliers and potential durability issues, however, it is actually a really tough rugged design. Although you aren't as spoiled for choice on what tools you have on the product, what is there is certainly enough and i feel for everyday casual use or basic camping, any other tools are going to be superfluous. Great product, nice and tough and very satisfying to operate the opening mechanism.
very handyAnonymous 31 December 2014i bought this Leatherman a few weeks ago it very well designed so simple and easy to use i love the one hand use i found that i can do a lot more delicate jobs with this tool that you can't do with other modals Leatherman. It may only have 16 tools but it's everything you need no wastage it has something about it that make it cool and different. This tool is so light and compact you won't even know its hanging off your belt until you kneed it. I summary it's light, compact, cool, to over done. Camping, fishing and outdoor and for every day it's brilliant
