Leatherman President Ben Rivera explains :
“The idea originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family,”-“I was stopped at the gate by security for carrying a knife, when what they had actually seen was my Skeletool. I was unwilling to give it up, so they made me take it all the way back to my hotel room. I knew there had to be another way to carry my tools with me that would be accepted by security.”
