Leatherman Charge TTi Review
The Leatherman Charge TTi is a premium multi-tool that is made of some of the finest materials. The Leatherman Charge TTi does command a premium price but I think it is well worth it for all of the raw capability lurking inside of it.
- Weight- 8.2 ounces
- Closed Length- 4 inches
- Blade Length- 2.9 inches
The Leatherman Charge TTi has the usual excellent Leatherman ergonomics that have been refined to near perfection over the decades. What make the Leatherman Charge TTi exceptional is the titanium handles. They contribute to the tools fairly light weight and bad-ass looks.
From an ergonomic stand point my favorite feature on the Leatherman Charge TTi is the one handed opening feature on the main blade. I’ve waited a long time for this to show up on a multi-tool and I think it should be embraced on more models.

The Leatherman Charge TTi comes with about all the tools you could possibly want on it. The heart of the tool is the bit drivers. It comes with a nice selection of bit but the addition of the Bit Driver Extension and the extra available bits extends the Leatherman Charge TTi into the realm of Batman’s Utility Belt. It really can tackle almost any job!
For me the rockstar of the group is the s30v Knife. It is almost unheard of for a multi-tool to come with a premium blade steel. Now at 2.9 inches it is far from a folding sword but it nice to know that I’ve got an additional high quality blade on me that I can lean on a bit if need be.
Another of the great features is the 420 HC Serrated Blade. 420 HC is far from a super steel but it is decent enough in this application. I generally don’t like for my primary blade to be serrated but I find real utility in having one on hand as a back up. The way a serrated blade cuts rope is a thing of beauty.
Where I’ve always had issues with the scissors on my Leatherman Juice S2, these scissors work great.
Carrying The Leatherman Charge TTi
The Leatherman Charge TTi is a BIG multi-tool. I find that unlike the Leatherman Juice s2 it really needs to be in a separate belt pouch. Plus it is at it’s most useful when the additional bits and driver extension are used, and that really precludes pocket carry. The Leatherman Charge TTi really shines as part of a well thought out EDC Gear system as it really enhances your tool using capabilities.
I really like the Leatherman Charge TTi. I bought it for myself with some birthday loot and haven’t looked back. It might be a bit large for EDC Carry but it has earned it’s place in my Maxpedition Mongo Versipack as part of my Get Home Bag. The only faults I have with it are it is a bit on the heavy side and with all the premium features the cost does get up there. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 Stars!.
