A strange little Squirt P4....
on: June 15, 2010, 01:34:47 AM
Got a quandry for you LM gurus to figure out - I purchased a small lot of Squirts/Micras and in the mix, there was a P4...in Solar Yellow.

It's not refinished, scales are a little bit scuffed n worn, but shining brightly. All the tools are in fine working order.

I emailed Leatherman, they replied back that they had no records of ever producing anything in yellow, except for the KF4 Juice.

Guys  ???

Sorry, no digital cam available for a picture, sigh.

Another thing that is puzzling: the two blue Squirts have a (tm) after Squirt, but the two pink ones and the yellow one each have (R), and all of them have (R) after leatherman.

Hey, stop poking me already!

Gotta borrow a cell/digital cam yet...workin' on it...

If ya wanna see it in person and you're in the Portland area, it'll cost you a cup of non-$tarsucks coffee or a microbrew  :cheers:

I'll be taking a fieldtrip over to Leatherman Portland headquarters soon  :P so I'll take it along and see if anyone on-site might have some idea.

It appears to be legitimate, everything seems to match up with the two other P4s I have - it's just those funky yellow scales.

I'M IN PORTLAND!  WHOO HOO!  And I have a digital camera!   ;)
I'll actually be going into Leatherman's Headquarters tomorrow at some point....not exactly sure what time though cause I have a ton of errands to run before our huge garage sale this weekend....

...speaking of which...wanna come?  Gonna be huge!  If you came over, you could bring the leatherman and I could take pics for you. :pok: :drool:   PM me if interested and I can give you my address.  Its all to raise money for an adoption trial we are going through.

AND I can buy you a cup of Stumptown coffee cause Metro Perc, down the street, who's owners love our daughter, have offered to donate all coffee that we will be selling cups of.   I'm in Tigard, just south of Portland.    If you haven't tried Stumptown coffee...you should...its goooooooood! :tu: 

I might even put some multitools out that Im having trouble selling on ebay, but to be honest, it would probably be a bunch of generic copies.  Let me know.

Its nice to finally find another member here that is in my area! :cheers:

Just a quick update on this...

So, we made plans for Strangz to come on over to my house during my garage sale and bring the legendary squirt.   He was a no show and I've sent him a few PMs with no response.  Bummer...I was hoping to see the Squirt. :(

The OP posted 5 times. 4 in this thread, and once to buy a PST. He was active for like 4 days.

He claimed possession of an unheard-of rarity, got people interested in purchasing it, and when invited to show it to someone, disappeared. Forever.

So, options are...
1) It was BS, and he was running a con. Being called on it, he split, wouldn't return, now trying to pull his BS elsewhere.
2) It was a fake, and he was embarrassed to show it off after having touted it.
3) It was legitimate, and he got hit by a bus on the way to show it off.
4) Staring at the tool's magnificence, he was mesmerized, and completely forget about going to show it to someone, or that he'd ever visited these forums.
5) Finding the coveted tool summoned the arch angel Multitoolicus Covetouris and he ascended into heaven as a reward for finding such a perfect collector's item.

Option 1 is almost certainly the case. Option 2, while possible, is much less likely.

You forgot about option #6, in which Leatherman sleeper cells read this thread, reported back to HQ, and then a sniper was sent out to erase OP and his yellow Squirt from all existence.

The first rule of Leatherman Renditioning is... you don't talk about Leatherman Renditioning.  :whistle:

And Zed, now that you're in possession of a Tool of Particular Magnificence... expect Leatherman Renditioning.  :rofl:
