Not to steal Colin's thunder, but that's almost certainly done like that from the factory.  However I wasn't aware that style of blade ever made it past prototype, or if it did then it was in very limited numbers. :think:  I think that's a rare one Colin, but Bob will know for sure. :tu: 

Oh and good spot 3bdul3zeez, I totally missed that. :salute:

See this thread for some of the prototype pics from 2010's SHOT show.

That is indeed an escapee from the Leatherman factory Colin. :salute: None were supposed to reach the public with one-hand opening blades. Sometime after we handled those prototypes at the 2010 Shot Show the decision was made to go with nail nicks instead of the thumbhole.

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

wow but that's really a knockout. Can it be really opened with a single hand in practice? As the tool is pretty small it would not be easy to do OHO even with that hole.

As small as the Style CS is, mine actually one hand opens quite well... even with my big hands. Hopefully I will find the time to finish my Style CS Project, but, it is just one of many pending projects and this one is at the bottom of the totem pole.....

I am a card carrying member of the Style CS club now. It is so easy to carry and not realize it's on you until needed. Great little fishing companion.

I was wondering why is this part bent like this. Does anybody know the reason?

Simple. It's for your thumb to open the bail, so you can remove it when it's clipped to something. Otherwise you'd have to push the front of the bail, which generally puts your thumb in the way of whatever you're unhooking it from.

Has anyone with hands bigger than a five year old ever successfully opened that thing with one hand? I have trouble with anything smaller than a Dragonfly, my Jester is just barely manageable, and I can't OHO the older Ladybugs with the smaller hole.

I can OHO my Bug ... BUT I cannot OHO it AND keep my tongue in my mouth and my shoulders level at the same time. It's one of those "concentration required" tasks, that comes with all kinds of involuntary movements  :whistle:

Good to see an old thread get a kick up the bottom. :D  I can now add a Style PS to my membership credentials.  :)


@Gryffin - I never did get the Bug to OHO (and gave it away pretty quickly) but I could do it with the Honeybee (though still not easily), however the Grasshopper isn't too bad IMO.  Not what you would call quick deployment, but I don't feel like I'm likely to draw blood either. ;)

I've been carrying a Style PS for a couple months now and I love it. Perfectly safe (and legal  :D) for school, and the pliers are way more useful than SAK pliers. It's the perfect tool to carry with a dedicated knife or SAK.

A Style PS arrived here today (along with a couple of little IDL pliers tools  ;) )

Time to start pairing up SAK's with them   :) I'll save the IDL results for another thread I reckon, but hot favourite for the PS is a black pioneer that doesn't see enough use. The pliers, scissors and file should compliment the Pioneer perfectly   :D

Amici,
Count me in as a member, and I find that the PS is the perfect companion for minimalist EDC or backwoods carry along with a Folts minimalist better than dare I say... a Juice...

Just about the same functions, with 3/4 less the weight...

Cheers,
Serge

So that you can't twist it off of your key chain. I had another carabiner clip that did not have this and it would torque and the pins on the end would pop out of their holes allowing it to come off my keys frequently. I'm looking at you Nite Ize. LOL

I have a Style PS and had (and gifted) a Style CS. The scissors on the CS were great, but I already had a pile of scissor-based keychain scale tools, and my friend needed a good, light-weight tool.

IF I did my math right, it seems that the Style PS is only very slightly heavier than adding the plier layer to a 91mm SAK, and the pliers are a LOT better. I'm not a super fan of the FRN panel on the PS, but I can live with it, and it seems to wear well.

I know a lot of folks have had problems with the carabiner detaching from whatever its been attached to, but I haven't had that problem at all. I do try to keep conscious of the possibility, though.

I think I'm with other folks' notion of it being best when being paired with a SAK. With a pair of scissors comparable to the VIC 58mm, so those are covered, I'm kind of tempted to pair mine with my Farmer. That's a lot of useful, there.

Farmer combos are good :tu:
I prefer the Pruner blade myself, so tend to carry other Alox, but essentially it's the same idea :)

I think I forgot to join this club!

I have a PS and a CS, and they both say Multitool.Org on them :D

I have a black CS on the car's keyring, i find it to be a great little tool, the scissors are great on mine. I gave one to my girl as a gift, one of those pink CS (breast cancer awareness) it is ok but for some reason i can't work out the scissors are less "powerful" like if they had less leverage...  :think:
