Leatherman Style
on: January 22, 2010, 08:36:35 AM
Some pics of the Style:





As you can see, it'll be available in 4 colors- blue, black pink and red, although the actual tints of these colors may not be 100% right- there was some mention of the shades on the prototypes above being slightly off what was planned.

The Style is a great little tool, similar to the Victorinox Classic in function, although it does give up the toothpick.  I didn't take a picture of it (I forgot  :-X) but it also has Squirt style tweezers.

Oh absolutely no doubt they are going after the small SAK market, my worry for them is that I don't think they will be priced like a SAK.  If I'm wrong then I'll be very happy. :)

What are the scissors like Boss?  I'm assuming that these are the same scissors that'll be seen on the one I'm really after, the PS4.

I would say the Style is aimed at Female users and the CS at male ones .

Scissors are all the same on the Style, PS4, and ES4. They seem to function fine on paper, with clean cuts and a good return spring.

What are the scales made of?  They look like rough plastic.  I would like to see one made from the same plain stainless steel material as the Micra is made of.  It looks like a nice minimalist keychain tool though.  I will be buying on in black when they come out.

Here are the dimensions.  I got them from a Leatherman catalog yesterday.  Actually a clerk at a tool store I went to showed me a catalog and they had all four of the new keychain tools listed, colors and dimensions.

Style:  Closed Length:  2.34", Blade Length:  1.6", Weight:  .81oz

Needs a foldout trident hook.  Then you could use it as a minnow lure too... :think:

It's quite nice looking, but doesn't have anything over a classic really... I'd be more tempted by a silver coloured one too.  :think:

Looks like they broke off a Squirt handle and are selling it as a new tool.  Maybe that's how they can improve warranty turnaround time.

People have been making that Micra mod for a couple years now.  The one that is just one handle of a Micra.  Leatherman must have noticed it, took the idea and ran with it a little.

I guess no one ever told them not to run with scissors then? :rofl:

I completely agree - looks nothing like a SAK  :think:

Whilst I'll inevitably get one (or some) of these, I can't see it making it into my EDC as it appears to be half a Micra or Squirt. I think I'll stick with the whole thing in all probability, or even more likely the Style CS. We shall see.

That poink is revolting btw - but it may not be the final shade or finish I guess. I wonder if it will resemble the Pink Squirts more by the time it gets to market - that's marginally less revolting!

Have to agree with you on that.  I suspect because it's a keychain tool they are trying to market it more to women.  :think:   I would like to see them make it in the same finish as the Micra.  It's a minimalist tool to begin with, why not keep the finish SS.

Hey, the pink Squirts are actually rather cute.  :twak:  Still, I think the colors for new new Ps4, Es4, and Style look downright horrid... give me my easily scratched alox. :/

We were told that the production color shades would differ somewhat from the prototypes available at Shot. The pink was specifically mentioned as one shade that would see a big change.
