Finally! I got a Swisstool
« on: April 30, 2010, 04:29:40 AM »
I posted a few days ago asking on how to remove the beaten up "swisstool" logo on a MT that I was getting at a great price.

So I finally got the tool!

One can tell this thing worked hard for a living...

The sheath was beaten up and worn nearly completely through. The tools dirty, blades dull, logo chipped, interiors full of debris. So in MultiTool.org lingo: it had buckets of "character".

But man did this thing clean up nicely!  I washed it with scalding hot water and dish soap, took a mini bristle brush to it, left it surgically clean.
Then removed the remaining pieces of the logo with a new single edged razor blade lubricated by water and WALA! logo removed without a mark.
Sharpened the blades...added a touch of oil and worked it onto the bases of the tools.

It's like a new tool...albeit without a sheath..but still..a real beauty.

All that's left are those nearly invisible micro scratches that one can only see when the light hits it a certain way.

I love the feel of this multi; carried it around the house today in my hand like a little kid, it's a standard square tool, yet somehow it feels great in my hands.

I bet it was a bit of a challenge to open the tools on it before the 'clean up'  :think: :D :D

Many of my fingernail's have felt the 'joy' only a gummed up SwissTool can give  :( :( :D :D :D

YES

I had only experienced sore fingertips from opening/closing Leatherman mt's and dedicated folders...but man sore fingernails is a unique feeling(not pleasant)

If only I could stop opening and closing the tool for no reason!


-Pics are coming  ;)
