A practical, convenient kit that contains everything you need to clean and maintain your multi-tools and every day carry knives.

The Leatherman tool maintenance kit is designed to clean and maintain your multi-tool – whether it’s a Leatherman product or any other brand. The carry case is small enough to be easily carried in a toolbox or backpack, attached to a belt, or stuffed into your automobile glove compartment. The case also includes enough space to hold a few multi-tools and pocketknives.

The kit comes in a durable, water-resistant nylon ripstop carrying case. At just under one pound it’s compact and light enough to carry in a toolbox, knapsack or on your belt. Inside the case are a pick and brush that you can use to loosen and remove the debris that can clog the articulating arm of multi-tools and work its way in between the narrow space between handle and blade. There is a small bottle of tool oil that you can use to lubricate pivot nuts and springs and a microfiber cleaning cloth for cleaning things up. The kit also contains a rubber work mat to protect work surfaces.
Also included is a Work Sharp knife sharpener that has 25° carbide blades (for sharpening dull blades), ceramic honing rods (for putting on a near-razor edge) and a 320-grit tapered diamond rod (for honing serrated blades).
There is ample room in the kit to store any additional cleaning or sharpening accessories you like to use, along with a few knives.
This kit will appeal to knife aficionados, outdoor enthusiasts, service technicians, tradespeople and the like who get a lot of use from their multi-tools and everyday carry knives.
