Leatherman's cheaper offerings rust. I don't own any of their higher end models.

Regardless, Stainless steel doesn't stay 'stainless' for long here. It definitely is not rust proof.

Even blades from 'nicer'/better quality knife manufacturers get spots quick without almost constant oiling/wipe downs.

8-10 hours in a sweaty pack, 6 days a week covered in dirt, rain, and humid salt sea spray....

H1 steel (Spyderco) and Swisstools hold up really well.

I lost a Spyderco Tasman accidentally in a mulch bed for an entire summer and when it was found & returned to me, there was zero rust.

I have also managed to rust a Glock slide to the point of pitting, but I was evacuating family, after shuttering up clients for a few weeks, and neglected my normal "once-a-week tool oil wipe down."

Just my personal experience.
