Very nice find.......I believe that would be the PST as the PST2 has scissors.   :tu:

Yes, it is a PST. Thanks for letting me know!
Thanks to you and Mech I noticed that on the MTO Leatherman page there is a lot of information about de PST. I think I will post also a picture on that page.
Good idea! :tu:

Today this up to now unknown DAK came in!!  :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh
It's a Leatherman Tool plus leather pouch.

The pouch has the Netherlands Defence Force gold colored "Interservice" logo on the flap.
The tool is dated 0696 (or is it 9690??) on the inside of one handle.
On one of the handles it is marked with an US NSN: 5110-01-321-8805.

Really nice find :like:

Question for the DAK experts:  What is the earliest year for DAKs with stamped year-of-issue on it?

Thanks,

This one came in today: A Victorinox SwissTool (standard model) with special print on pouch.
The printed emblem on the pouch is from the Netherlands Army "11 Luchtmobiele Brigade" (=11 Air Mobile Brigade). This emblem was in use until 2005.
The tool has the 1996 style pliers head, so the knife is dated between 1996 to 2005.

Oops, I really am a little bit stupid. At the office I am responsible to accompany one of our trainees. This trainee is now around for 2 weeks. Guess what? He's a NCO with... 11 Air Mobile Brigade! I didn't make the connection before...  :facepalm:
Today I showed him a picture of the SwissTool + pouch and asked him if he had ever seen it. "Yes, these were given more than 10 years ago as a X-mas present for all personnel of 11 LMB" was his answer.

Wrong! I put on my glasses and read again the thread "Different Swisstool plier heads , the truth". It's NOT the 1996 style pliers but the 1998 style.
So this DAK SwissTool can be dated 1998 - 2005.

Interesting..

The ones from the 1960s look very crude, is that just how they were made or is that from usage?

Just curious

Which ones?

If they're made by Amefa, they were just made more crude.

Correct, the Amefa's are more crude than the Vics.
Amefa wasn't a company specialized in pocket knives, but more in other cutlery, like spoons forks and ordinary knives. In order to compete with Victorinox (which company had a lead on in pocket knives), the workmanship of Amefa pocket knives was lesser than that of Victorinox's. At the end Amefa was just too expensive and the company stopped producing pocket knives at all.
That is my unprofen theory.

Two DAK multitools recently acquired:
1.   Top. This specimen had a black printing “HOBKL”, but after cleaning the printings were gone! Now the tekst can  only can be seen as a very faint discolorization of the stainless steel metal.
HOBKL = Hoger Onderhoudsbedrijf Koninklijke Landmacht, which translates into “Higher Maintenance Works Royal Army”. The knife was found on a Dutch Army training ground.

2.   Below. Almost the same multitool, but with laser engraving “TFU-1”.
TFU-1 = Task Force Uruzgan-1.
TFU-1 was the first Australian-Dutch combined Battle Group active for ISAF in Uruzgan-Afghanistan from juli 2007 to january 2008. This multitool was given as a souvenir to the Dutch soldiers of the 12 Air Mobile Batalion -that was part of TFU-1 Battle Group- after completion of their (first) tour. An estimate of about 150 multitools were handed over.

Quality of these multitools is BAD! For sure not Swiss quality!
Only small differences beween the two.
The TFU-1 specimen has a broken spring on the main blade and the Phillips SD.
They were probably made by Eiffel Hardware Intenational Co., Ltd in Yangjing city, Guangdong, China. Item number EMH05SS0004-A.

I noticed a DAK on ebay just this evening...FYI. Not sure if it's a good value or not, but it's out there.
