Over the years, there are few tools I’ve reviewed more often, or with more enthusiasm, than the Leatherman. I’ve had one on my belt for decades, and I bet many of you wear one too, or at least have one close at hand. As I’ve pointed out countless times before, if you want to understand how seriously some people take this tool, look on the belt of any cop, firefighter, EMT, or other law enforcement or emergency response worker, and you’re likely to find a Leatherman poised there.

So being enthusiasts of these tools, we were thrilled when Leatherman wanted to team up with us this Father’s Day to give away a new Super Tool 300, their most impressive, beefiest multi-tool. It has an $84 retail value.

Here’s how it works. In honor of dad, we’d love to hear some of your memories of your father and his favorite tools when you were growing up. The contest will run through Father’s Day, this Sunday (6/19). At 12-noon Pacific time on Sunday, we will announce a winner, and on Monday, we’ll do a follow-up post featuring some of our favorite stories you shared.

So, post your fond reminiscences in the comments below. And good luck!

After the jump, you can see more details about the Super Tool 300. And, it’s also currently available in the Maker Shed.
