Flair, Crunch and Relatives (pictorial)
on: August 31, 2011, 11:28:50 AM



I always liked interesting, different, out of the box thinking, multitools so I have been lusting after the Leatherman Flair for some time.
Here was a tool that could take abuse and then allow you to enjoy your well earned meal, a tool that was at home at a building site and at a wedding reception. My Flair even has hard wire cutters which my PST (old model) does not have.

When I finally was able to get one at an affordable price I was surprised by how similar it was to my PST, so I took some comparison pictures.

Along the same thinking pattern of being unusual I also liked the Crunch, so when I was able to get a New one  at a reasonable price, I compared it with the other hard working mans (or woman’s nowadays, I guess ..) Leatherman tool, the Supertool 300, to see which looks harder.

Twins?
The pliers and hadles look very similar.


Tool selection. Personally I think the Flair has everythinng you need and more. The only missing tool is the file, but you get scissors in their place.





Blades



What the Flair offers that the PST does not.



Working mans tools..
Hard man contest!!


Blades...


Locks



The stars with their costumes... (the Flair has the cheapest sheath; maybe it is not original)

You have a great group of Leatherman mate  8) 8) 8) 8).
Yep I reckon the Flair & Crunch are 2 of the more interesting MTs made  :think: :D :D.

My NIB Flair had a nice old style leather sheath  8) 8) :D :D :D

I really wanted  :drool:  a new one, but the price was way over double what I paid; would have cost $200 in total to have it shipped to me.

On the plus side, mine looks unused.  :D
Now I need a well used one, that I will not be scared to use..  ;)

Jealous! As multimat knows I got fed up waiting for a decent priced Flair so I made my own!

At least you know yours is unique!

Good work, though I suspect for the total cost you paid and the time it took to make you could have bought a flair

Likely, but the updated S30v blade and locking tools make it so much cooler :)

I still want a flair...but later.
