I made a post a while back along similar lines to yours Grumpy.
10yrs from now Eh'
Plenty of garish colours, EVERYTHING now built in the far east (under license ofcourse).
As for your dream of titanium and carbon fibre..... Hmm
If they can find a way to give us a cheap but authentic titanium or carbon fibre, then yes I suppose it's a possibility - otherwise I predict it will all go the same way as SOG...to the dogs, that is.
And, the real McCoys i.e the genuine multitools from that "made in the USA" bygone era will fetch a premium.
To think that Schrade, Buck, Gerber, SOG and leatherman to some extent were all once genuine made in the USA tools and now... and now either gone or going. It's tragic that the multitool (PST) that came about in the early eighties and spawned a whole new market has now all but disappeared within 3 decades. I don't see it ever returning.
