This multi-tool houses 18 individual tools, but despite this it still maintains a compact size. In fact, when fully closed it only measures 4 inches long, which is plenty manageable for storing in your pocket or tucking away in your toolbox.
With a stainless-steel construction, the Wave Plus will resist corrosion, staining, and rust. All of the components (except for the plier head) can be opened and locked, and many of them can be accessed even while the multi-tool is folded and closed.
Now, the most important question is— what tools are included in the Wave+ multi-tool? Here’s a comprehensive list of all of its components.
