    I have a wingman for everyday carry and decided to get a specific tool.for outdoors. I details used on the surge and am wondering if I should get the black version. I've heard it protects from corrosion a bit. Is this true? And is there a special way to care for the tool? And will it eventually come off/scratch easier? Is it worth it in your opinions?

    I've got a black Leatherman Super Tool 300... dying to replace it with a regular stainless steel version. Too hard to find the black one when you drop it outdoors. The finish on mine has held up great but I don't think it's really needed as all my multitools get a liberal coating of mineral oil anyways.
