Hi Mr. Pinchy! :D Ooh, and check out that original leather pouch too! I swear they must have used half a cow each on those things :o :D

Same here! :D Nothing at all like the cheapo vinyl or "pleather" sheaths that a lot of tools come with nowadays. ::)

Thanks for sharing the pic. I had never seen what the early leather sheaths looked like.

They are very nice. The leather and stitching are saddle quality

If she wasn't so fine, she would make the carry rotation. Almost perfect. Any idea which generation build, or when.
It appears the handles are identical, interchangeable. Clever Gerber. Serrated blade marked Gerber USA. Simonds file. Plain blade marked Gerber USA. 2 patent numbers.

Looks like a 4th generation Multi-Plier (button-head screws on plier sliding mechanism, serrated blade instead of awl, round nut tool pivot). Not sure about the plier head - can't tell if it was the new or old style introduced in the 5th generation. Was there a 4.5 generation version with an updated plier head and without the rivet plier sliding mechanism?

Looks like a version 4 Mr Pinchy to me also (as it has Pat # 5212844 then it is the later 4.1 variant).  The pliers were significantly beefier in version 5.  I haven't ever noticed a version 4.5 Mr Pinchy (but that doesn't mean Gerber didn't make any, or that somebody didn't construct their own)

Found this old girl Monday. A little work with a toothbrush and dish soap, a little wire wool, and a shot of WD-40, and she looks almost like new. Very similar to the model I gifted to a friend several years ago.
Any ideas as to the production date and unofficial "series x, y, z" on this?

That's a 4th generation Multi-Plier. Nice clean example, too!

(button head screws on sliding mechanism, round nut pivot screws, previous generation blunt nose plier head)

Late 90's, maybe? I wish Gerber would have stamped production dates like Leatherman does....

I just bought used Mr Pinchy, 2nd generation. It probably had not seen any lubrication since early 90's.
What size of hex driver should I get to unscrew it?

Too much punctuation might reveal problems.

(Image removed from quote.)
If needed use the hex driver that fits. Otherwise just apply the oil on the washers from the end and open / close the tools to work it in.

It's a weird American size,  not metric. 2 sizes required, one for the tools, the other for the plier head mechanism.

That's why I'm asking. It's not easy thing to find American-size hex drivers right in the middle of Europe.

Cleaning and lubrication were the first things I did after opening the package. It looks like the only tool used, was a plain edge blade.  On the other tools BO looks untouched.

Okay, one more question: is it normal for Mr Pinchy's wire cutters to grind on each other?
Otherwise, how can I stop that?

What do you mean exactly? They have to touch when closing to be functional as a wire cutter. That is unless it is a anvil style wire cutter which the Mr. Pinchy is not. Is it causing the pliers to be hard to open?

I know, I know.  I just thought that the friction is too strong, that the ends of the pliers don't meet each other (or maybe I'm too used to Leatherman's needlenose pliers). The gap is not large, maybe not even half a milimeter. It just is.

I'm not completely certain, but I think on that model the plier head tension is adjustable with a pin spanner.

You could always file or dremel the cutters to get the clearance.
