    First post here. I've really been enjoying all the good discussion here.

    Here's my question: I just receieved a Leatherman Wave, model no. 830040, that I purchased from Amazon. On the back of the package, it says that it includes a Bit Kit with the following:

    Philips #1-2
    Screwdriver 3/16"
    Philips Eyeglass Screwdriver
    Flat Tip Eyeglass Screwdriver

    The package came with two double-sided bits. One has the two eyeglass screwdrivers, and the other has the two Philips tips. There was no 3/16" screwdriver bit as indicated on the packaging. I feel like I was gypped. I don't think they are counting the flathead/slotted screwdriver on the tool as the one listed under the Bit Kit because it's wider than 3/16".

    In other words, mine came with a double ended philips like this:

    instead of a philips/slotted combo like this:

    Has anybody else purchased a Wave recently, and if so, what bits were included?

    Ralph, thanks for the reply, but why would the packaging says "screwdriver 3/16" if it's not supposed to be included?

    Your right, looks like reading comprehension slipped by me today.

    I'd call them on it as it's supposed to have a double ended bit phillips on one side and slotted on the other. Maybe they'll send you one.

    It can't hurt to try.
