I have one of the Gerbers with the metal release buttons and the blunt nose pliers. It's a tough tool, I've used it to cut through barb wire before. One of the local EMT's had one at an accident scene I attended, and when he flicked the pliers out, I knew I would have to have one.I'd date the one I have right around late 1991 or so, maybe earlier, as I left that job that I bought it for in June 1992.Maybe there is a date code on the piece?
Hmmm... mine was one of the earliest ones as well. But it had no scissors, and instead it had a sort of thick X-acto blade.Wish I still had it. Excellent tool. It now resides somewhere on the bottom of Cruz Bay.Any clue when that model came out?
If I suggested that I got mine around 92 or maybe 93 would that sound impossible?
I am fairly certain of that then.. I can remember opening some of my first legal beers with it. I turned 21 in 03. Of course my memory of those days is rather hazy...
So, as a user, you'd not recommend them eh?
Really enjoyed those photos Bob . Ya gotta love digital cameras, very handy for reassembly purposes .
