The Leatherman Knifeless Fuse is a combination tool that comes without a knife. Marketed for “knife-prohibitive situations,” the tool contains 13 standard tools (needlenose/regular pliers, two wire cutters, wire stripper, small/large/Phillips screwdrivers, scissors, file, can/bottle opener, 8″ ruler) that one would expect in a multi-tool.
If you work at a school or an airport, this combination tool is marketed for you. While TSA will probably make the rest of us check this, there are certainly occupations where having a knife is a liability rather than an asset. The remaining tools, as expected, are consistent with Leatherman’s reputation for quality.
The Knifeless Fuse benefits from Leatherman’s new design — the jaw and wire cutter/stripper are longer than before, and the grips are now Zytel (nylon). Additionally, Leatherman claims the tool locking system is “50% stronger” than previous versions.
All said, it’s a tool for a very specialized group of folks, but if you’re one of them, this’ll do the trick.
