When comparing the both wave and new wave, we may pay attention on its overall features. For example the wave doesn’t have all the tools lock and only the outside blade. The thumbholes are also smaller and the knife blades were narrower. The wave also don’t have the bit-holder but in exchange it has a great pair of scissors. When choosing which one you want to purchase, it is better to look at your need first. However in our opinion, the Leatherman New Wave is better because it is the upgraded version of the original wave. But if you don’t want to spend more on your multitool, the original wave still does a good job.
