via West County Explorers Club: I think I bought my Leatherman Wave in 1998 or 1999 shortly after that model first came out. Since then I've used it regularly for every conceivable thing: sawing branches, pulling splinters, tightening clutch cables, skinning small game, opening beers. If you have one, you know the list is endless.
Well, it's been about 15 years, and this year, before we left for our summer sailing trip I noticed that one of the blades wasn't locking anymore because the spring-steel locking tab had cracked. I remembered that Leatherman had an amazing warranty but I didn't want to send the tool back because I knew I'd need it all summer which, of course, turned out to be true.
When we got back, I researched their warranty and found that, if anything goes wrong, they will repair or replace the tools within 25 years of purchase. I'd never heard of a warranty like that and happily sent mine in. About a week later a package came in the mail. Inside was a brand new Leatherman Wave. Fantastic!
In case your Leatherman has lasted longer than mine and you haven't seen one in a while, here's what the Wave—redesigned in 2004—looks like today.

In my opinion, it's worth every penny and more.
