Leatherman Charge TTi Review

Today I’m going to be doing a Leatherman Charge TTi Review.  This happens to be my absolute favorite multi-tool and I’m really looking forward to sharing it’s awesome features with you today.

For anyone familiar with multi tools, they will know that Leatherman is simply the best of the best.  Time after time they come out with new, innovative and reliable multi-tools that serve their owners for years.  The Charge TTi is no different.  So without further ado, let’s get into it.

Leatherman Charge TTi Review

First things first we’re going to start with the name.  The TTi in “Leatherman Charge TTi” stands for titanium, which is what the entire knife is built out of.

As you might imagine from a tool built out of titanium, it makes for one solid piece metal.

If you’re looking for a lightweight multi-tool this definitely isn’t for you as it weighs in at a little over half a pound.  Some might not like the size and bulkiness of it if they are planning on carrying it around as an everyday tool.

However, the added weight also means that this thing is rock solid and can stand up to a beating.  I myself like the extra bulk – it really gives me the impression that if I needed to use it for major work in the field it would be up for the challenge.

Now onto the features, the Leatherman Charge TTi comes fully packed with a ton of useful tools one would expect in a quality knife (see the bottom of this post for the full list).

The main blade is made out of super high quality S30V steel which holds an edge forever, is easy to sharpen and is downright wicked to look at.  It’s easily opened with one hand, and features a nice locking mechanism that ensures the blade doesn’t close until you want it too.

In addition to the straight blade, the Charge TTi also comes with a nice serrated blade with a gut hook.  This blade is great for heavy cutting and is great for making short work of paracord.

The double sided file has teeth for both wood and metal.  In particular the diamond steel side is amazing for touching up the edges on things like axes, hatchets, machetes and even your fixed blade survival knife if necessary.

The saw is nice and functional although admittedly this probably shouldn’t be your first option for cutting any wood.  That being said, it pairs great with a piece of firesteel to generate a healthy amount of sparks for starting a fire.

The rest of the tools are sturdy, well-made and function as they should on any good multi-tool.  Check out the video below for the excitement of unboxing your very own Leatherman Charge TTi.

  1. This is the “swiss army* knife” of the future … I have to agree with you Jake, This is on my survival rig… and my duty belt. Good review !

  2. Jake,
    I couldn’t agree more with this choice. I have this and the Surge. The only item I like more about the Surge is that it comes in Black. There is the Charge ALX that comes in black however it does not have the S30V knife which is a huge plus for the TTi not available on most other multi-tools. While the weight of the Charge TTi is heavy, it is smaller and easier to handle when compared to the Surge.

    I have the TTi for EDC, but I believe in redundancy and will invest in a second for the BOB and move my Surge to my Long Term Bag, or sell it and get a third TTi. Thanks for your review and getting the word out.

    • Lynn,

      Glad to hear you like the TTi for EDC. When it comes to multi-tools, any Leatherman is a good multi-tool! You’re already a lucky man to have two 😉 Perhaps that second TTi might be arriving under the tree in a few short days??

      Enjoy the holidays!
