Leatherman Launches the Knifeless Rebar at SHOT Show

The classic multi-tool reimagined for industrial workplaces

Portland, OR—January 19, 2015— Building on one of its most successful multi-tools ever, Leatherman Tool Group debuts the new Knifeless Rebar in 2016. Addressing blade restrictions in many workplaces today, the Knifeless Rebar features an ultra tough pair of scissors rather than a knife.


“Whether it’s a coalmine or a breakfast cereal factory, more and more restrictions are being put in place prohibiting knives in the workplace,” said Leatherman Product Manager Jason Carpenter. “A precision-made multipurpose tool is still important to many to maximize efficiency, so by removing the knife blade and adding scissors, we’ve been able to keep the Leatherman Rebar where it belongs - on the job.”

The new Knifeless Rebar includes 16 of the most popular tools found in the original multi-tool, including: needlenose pliers, regular pliers, saw, ruler, can opener, precision-ground screwdrivers, a Three-sided ground file, replaceable premium steel wire cutters and a bottle opener.

The tool is 4 inches long when closed and weighs 6.7 ounces. Available in stainless steel, the Knifeless Rebar MSRP is $80 and can be found at industrial supply retailers and on Leatherman.com.
