Demagnetize Leatherman

I have a Leatherman Squirt P4. Recently, the Leatherman became magnetized somehow. What's the best way to demagnetize it?

Throw it hard against a wall, over and over, and smash it with a hammer, your choice.

. An AC coil and a rheostat. Start out at full power and slowly turn it down. This will randomize the magnetic fields.

You could expose it to extreme heat.

That would lose its temper. I've seen magnetizing blocks that also have a demagnetizer.

Duh, now I remember. Leatherman has a 25 year warranty. Go get a new one (anywhere that sells them does this)
