As another big Pulse fan I'm very glad you like it. I disengage the locks slightly differently to you though. After using a tool (screwdriver for example) I'll disengage the lock before splitting the handles apart. I find this gives a much better grip on the handles as both parts are filling your hand and much better leverage on the lock. So now you part fold the tool, split the handles and then push the tool home. I think that's clear, but as always YMMV.
Whew, thanks guys. I'm glad I did ok. My wanting this is yet another thing I can blame on all of you...LOL. Seriously, it's just a really cool, functional little tool. I wanted one of the older LM's mainly because of my uncle who passed away a couple of years ago. He was a contractor and all around handy man...he could fix or build anything and I loved playing with his MT when I was a kid. His much used, much beloved PST has been forever retired to me, but I think he would have liked this tool too...he probably would have tried to make one of his own because he would have loved those locks. It sounds weird, but I don't want to try to get a PST or a PST II because to me that was his and his alone. Might not make much sense to any of you, but he was one of those people that encouraged me to be my own person even when I was following him around at age 8 with a "home made" tool belt "helping" him. I miss him a lot. For that reason, this tool will hold a special place. Anyway, thanks for the replies.Gray
Pffft, get a PST II anyway.

......The file, also, has not seen much use yet, but it did file down a rough point on my hiking stick quite nicely. My roommate said it worked well on her nails. It is very nice though......
