The Leatherman Story

There is an actual Leatherman. Tim Leatherman. And he’s been the driving force behind Leatherman Tools for over 25 years.

A native Oregonian, Tim received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Oregon State University in 1970.

After that, he held a variety of jobs including positions as an English teacher and a helicopter mechanic. Time spent travelling abroad ultimately led to the Leatherman multi purpose tool concept…

In 1975, Tim Leatherman was travelling across Europe when his car broke down, repeatedly. Although a competent mechanic, Tim realised his trusty scout knife couldn’t do the job. What he needed was something better, more versatile and completely reliable.
