So True.  It could be the days of the one handed openers has passed.  Legislation is just making it impossible almost everywhere.  Too bad because for legitiment uses they could be very useful such as when up on a latter or any numbers of times fixing something you don't always have 2 hands available.

Not specifically Vic related (although as a European company they might be best placed to do it), but when is somebody going to produce a proper multitool with sub 3", external opening, non locking blades and locking drivers etc?

There's a definite market for those.

As far as I know, the only MT with external, non-locking blades from the well known manufacturers is the Bear Jaws. There might be others, but I can't think of any.

Would be nice if it had a one handed blade .

Dunc
I'm not so sure given the way the UK's probably going :-\

And besides, with the domestic, German ect ect market's banning OH, why would Vic bother ???

Thats a really good point and although a OHO would be ideal a two handed non locking would be more sensible and UK Legal . I hope were not getting our hopes up for nothing .

I think the US market will determine what Vic makes tbh.

Isn't that a Juice?

I was thinking full sized multi (4" or over) really.

But you're dead right, it makes the Juice an attractive option over here.

I agree that the US market is probably big enough to drive the production by itself, however you all forgot something important: As long as the Swiss Army contract says OH, there will be OH blades, at least on the 111mm tools.
