On the heels of our Toolbox column on knives and multitools comes news of a new tool in the Leatherman family, the Knifeless Fuse. The tool is marketed for “knife-prohibitive situations” and has everything you’d expect on a similar multitool (needlenose/regular pliers, two wire cutters, wire stripper, small/large/Phillips screwdrivers, scissors, file, can/bottle opener, 8″ ruler) except for a blade. But as Steven Leckart says on BB Gadgets: “…The thing’s still potentially-lethal and probably won’t get through TSA. So really, I don’t get it.” We don’t either.
