Leatherman maintenance


Apr 28, 1999
I have a Leatherman Supertool. It recently got some gunk (maybe packing tape bits) in between the blades and handles. Is there any way I can take apart the Leatherman and clean it out? Thanks!
I usually just open all the tools (to different angles) and blast the hell out of it with Gunscrubber or plain ol' WD40. Has always worked for me!

Picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue...

I don't think the super tool can be dissasembled, but I agree with Clay, using WD-40 is amazing in removing sticky gunk off blades and stuff, wont rinse away you must rub it off and the oil makes it an easy job.

This probably won't work for packing tape but I just put mine in the dishwasher. When it's done I wipe it down or blow it off and reoil the pivots.
