I've never owned a Wave to do a side-by-side comparison, but the Pulse is sized like a thicker PST if that helps.

Congrats!
I have the Pulse and its big brother, the ST 200. The Pulse was only my second multitool; I bought it to replace my PST to curb the blood loss.  :rofl:

It is, indeed, like a slightly larger PST II by virtue of having the same tools with the addition of them locking open. I can post a pic tonight of the Pulse, an original Wave, and a new Wave together if you like.

big help mate, i like carrying the pst now and then in my back pocket so ill see how this one goes, although locking blades will probably mean it will end up a backpack carry, im getting a few of those these days  :D

The Pulse is great multitool  :tu:

I had a mint condition one but didn't want to rough it up; don't tell Ben 

It was fun to own; now it resides in the US of A  :D

The pulse is a great tool, with a nice selection in a slim package.
The locks take a bit of getting used to.
Here's a tip if you have adequate finger nails:
Use them to push the locks from their edge instead of using a finger on the outer grooves, it's much easier that way :tu:

How do you guys release the locks? Do you let it 'snap' back to position? I like the unusual locks but the knocking sound worries me. I tend to unlock the tools the Supertool method to avoid that. Or I release it gently.

Here's mine  :angel:

I had to think about how I let go of the locks, seems I gently guide them closed part way then let go.

Yes that seems like it would limit any damage done (though I don't expect damage at all). On the topic, I was wondering if anyone has seen a damage locking mechanism... the pivot at the slider seem like it is subjected to a lot of pressure! :think:

You're right Zed! :tu: In fact, I bought it to be used on my G-Shocks. I went through many shades of red before deciding on this one. Must have looked funny for a guy testing nail varnish :rofl: However I changed my mind later after seeing a bezel that had damage from Goo-Gone (maybe too much?). So it was just sitting there until today.

Anyway, on steel it looks a lighter red in real life, more like undried (liquid) blood. It is a Pulse after all. ;)

I also read that some people uses china crayons but unfortunately I do not have any on hand. I would really like to know whether there is any difference between the two, in terms of resistance to rubbing off, or even corrosion!

I'm thinking of doing it in blue next.  :multi:

I have never seen any damaged pulse or ST200 locks, and I have given mine a thorough workout.

BTW blue would look really nice :D

First a belated Happy Birthday to the Pulse Owners Club...!!!

I have wanted to join this club but I only recently became eligible pics below. 

From reading this thread I wonder what the oldest date codes are for the Pulse...it seems a few of us have handles with 0900/1000 date code pairs but nobody has posted anything earlier.  The groove and non groove on the file is interesting too.  I am curious about the oldest Pulse and the latest Pulse out there.   

I'm very glad I re-read this thread, I was considering using or selling my older Pulse since I figured I did not need 2 but now since it has the grooved file and the 0900/1000 date code pair it is going to become a shelf queen. 

Here are my required Club pictures along with their big brother.

Bruce

Thanks that is very assuring.  :tu:

I looked around for blue yesterday while at a departmental store but they didn't have what I want. They only had those fancy ones with glitter or pearly colours. I want something more like electric blue.

Then I came across things like base coat and top coat, and it reminded me of how car paint is applied. Then I thought, hmmm... maybe applying a top coat will help to protect the colour from being stained by dirt and dust from use? I didn't buy it though. Just thinking aloud.  :think:

You have the right tool... but do you know how to use it the right way?
