Comfort

For comfort, the Leatherman Super Tool 300 has some implemented qualities to make it easier to use. The handle can be easily gripped even with gloves and thanks to the cutouts on the sides each tool can be manipulated with ease with gloves on. Rounded for comfort and sloped, the handle design allows for working in tight spaces.

The size is portable, and the tool is always ready to use within reach because of the lanyard ring to keep it handy. With this multitool being a bit larger than the other models the company makes, some people found it too heavy and big for their purposes. The Leatherman Super Tool 300 is designed to be a workhorse for your building, repairing, and general use needs and not so much a small tool for the most portability.
Durability

Durability

Made of stainless steel, both the blade and the handle will give you years of service that you can rely on. All of the multitools of Leatherman are repaired and created in the USA. Plus they come with a manufacturer’s warranty of 25 years if you happen to have a tool break or become defective in any way.

The Leatherman Super Tool 300 is ideal for the toughest types of jobs and will not show signs of rust even with much abuse and wear. For instance, the pliers on this multitool are the toughest that the company makes. This is probably why it is so popular with customers and has such a high approval rating online.
Flexibility

Flexibility

You get a leather sheath with the Leatherman Super Tool 300 that has a Velcro attachment, so you can put it on a belt and wear it. Three pockets are small on this sheath for little things you want to carry with you. In the Version section below, you will see that there is another multitool that is just like this one but with a few differences.

The main one is this sheath material. This product has a leather sheath, and the other has a nylon one. Nearly every buyer preferred the leather sheath.

Even with this more durable substance, though, some customers did not like this leather sheath. They said that is not the best quality and did not last them very long. Instead, they opted to purchase another more durable one.
Protection

Protection

To protect you when you are using this multitool, Leatherman has incorporated on the outside of the handles a lock release.

This is a secure and safe locking feature for all of the tools included except the pliers. The lock keeps the individual device straight, so the device will not fold when in use.

Several people did not like that the Leatherman Super Tool 300 must be opened to get to the tools, unlike the Wave Multitool that the company makes. Others felt that this version could be challenging to close and open at first, but it did get better with use and time.

On the other hand, a couple of buyers experienced looseness of the tools and the sheath. Contacting the company should clear up any problems like this, as it wants you to be delighted with their products.
Size

Size

If you are familiar with Leatherman multitools, then you will quickly discover that this one is a tad bit bigger than the others. It is not meant to be the smallest but was built to be the strongest and most durable of the multitool bunch. The Leatherman Super Tool 300 will fold up each time tight and compact and weighs just 11.2 ounces.

Its overall dimensions are 5.2 x 4 x 2 inches with a closed length of 4.5 inches and a maximum length of the blades at 2.5 inches. It is still portable and light enough to carry anywhere you need a tool and is certainly better than trying to lug around these individual tools of regular size in a large toolbox. This nifty item can fit in your pocket and has 19 different tools inside.
Stability

Stability

The individual tools that cut and shape things are the stable parts of this multitool because they are the most incredible. Really, a functioning saw on a small pocket tool. It can handle plastic pieces and small branches easily.

The wire cutters are terrific for cutting bailer wire and can be re-sharpened easily. You get both serrated and straight knives with blades that are extra-long. These knives hold a great edge that is better than regular folding pocket knives.

There are metal and wood files, including a fingernail file. These will not dull quickly and are quite durable. As part of the 19 tools on the Leatherman Super Tool 300, the knives, files, wire cutters, and saw are the tools you will mostly use for emergencies.
Style

Style

If this will be your first multitool, then you are in for a treat. Once you have one, you will wonder how you ever got by without one. Even women keep these in their vehicles, purses, bags, garage, kitchen, and at work to handle that unexpected need of a hand tool that comes up.

You know it is going to happen, so you might as well be prepared, right? The Super Tool 300 is one of the best multitools from Leatherman makes, so it's good first purchase from this company. It is highly functional with 19 tools in one device!

Yes, 19 individual tools that you can use one at a time, and they all stay connected together. No other multitool of Leatherman has this many tools in one product. It is compatible with the Tool Adapter from Leatherman and comes with a leather sheath.

This is what you get: three screwdrivers, regular and needle nose pliers, two knives, three-wire cutters, a wire stripper, can and bottle openers, a saw, two files, a ruler, an awl, and a crimper for electrical work. The wire cutters are regular, hard, and stranded and are removable. How is that for one item that you can hold in just one hand?
Support

Support

Now for the workhorse part of the Super Tool 300 that you will be depending on the most – the pliers and screwdrivers. You get needle nose and regular pliers that hold good and are strong. Disappointing to some is the fact that they do not open with spring as some other multitools do.

The included screwdrivers are an extra-small, a medium, and a large Phillips that can handle all types of loose screws anywhere. None of them will miss or slip under pressure and are full-sized for comfort and use. There is also a can opener that is fast and sharp and a ruler of nine inches.
Use

Use

This tool is perfect for pockets, backpacks, tool bags, trucks, and purses. That makes camping its best use. It is certainly more fun to use than standard tools in a toolbox, and it is a multitool ideal for the working person.

This superb product is perfect for truckers, mechanics, warehouse workers, and homeowners. Use it to work on a computer, repair a door, or fix furniture. One buyer suggested that if you are traveling with this tool, remember to put it in the checked luggage or otherwise it will be confiscated by the airline.

That person lost his first Leatherman multitool that way. A multitool like this one is so versatile that you will find its handy to have on-the-go. Some people ended up purchasing more than one to have in different places they frequently go.
Version

Version

Compared to other Leatherman multitools, the Super Tool 300 has the Wave Plus, the Rebar, and the Super Tool 300 (with Nylon Sheath and Removable Bit Driver Set) all beat in ratings and number of reviews. The price is lower than the Wave that has 18 tools but higher than the Rebar with 17 devices. It is bigger than the other three in length and width but only thicker than the Rebar.

This model is most similar to the other 300 Super Tool, since they have the same tools but is different in the sheath. This one is leather, and the other is nylon. The other one comes with a removable set of bit drivers too. Over 900 more people purchased the one with the leather sheath (this model) than they did the one with the nylon sheath.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

Leatherman multitools are so widely used and popular. It would hard to find anyone who does not already own one. The Super Tool 300 is a bigger model that is still very portable.

Still, it has the most tools of all the multitools and is stronger. The few negative reviews from buyers concerned only minor issues of a personal nature. Just like the company itself, the Leatherman Super Tool 300 excels in construction, design, performance, functionality, and materials. You are not likely to be disappointed.
