Leatherman Charge+ Damascus

Limited-Edition Leatherman Sports Wood, Carbon Fiber, and Damascus Steel

Go sleek and futuristic or polished and rustic. Leatherman releases two distinctive updates on the Charge+, both in gorgeous Damascus steel.

Custom graphics, anodized colors, and retro designs — Leatherman continues to keep its tried-and-true multitools and pocket knives fresh. And now, the Portland brand unveils two of the most eye-catching updates we’ve seen.

Just launched, the Charge+ Damascus marks a collaboration with Vegas Forge. Leatherman tapped the Nevada blacksmith to give the Charge+’s blades the unmistakable pattern of Damascus steel.

But it didn’t stop there. The Charge+ Damascus also comes in two handle finishes: carbon fiber with blue PVD coating and a walnut-finished wood with gold PVD coating.

Both Charge+ Damascus options cost $300 and are extremely limited. Leatherman made just 300 of each to sell globally, so if you like what you see, act fast!

Both contain 19 tools, weigh just under 8 ounces, and come with Leatherman’s Ainsworth leather sheath.

And while $300 may seem steep for a multi — well, it is — crafting the Damascus steel adds a lot of extra work.

“For more intricate patterns, like the spirograph pattern on the Charge+, the process can take up to 11 hours,” Jesse Harber, Vegas Forge owner and founder, said.
