Ya.. They do feel solid in the hands. Not quite like the newer models that feels "hollow-ish and light-ish"..  :dunno:

Thanks to our fellow member lovecraft25 offering one for sale last week I'm now joining this club as well.  :multi:

I've been curious about the Blast for a while now, so it's nice to have one in hand. Good toolset, pretty authorative snap from the lock, but as I suspected, it's a really boxy and chunky tool. (Definitely a distant third behind my Pulse and Rebar in that sense). The Zytel inserts are okay but bit of a letdown, I was expecting something more comfortable. All in all it's still a very good MT, I like it and happy to have one in my collection. Not an (on-person) EDC item because of the form factor but seems to be a very dependable kit MT.

Congrats, Exeter!  :like:
That is the older version, and being so, it is harder to find. :tu:

Main collections: SOG, Gerber, Leatherman, Victorinox. Also lots of cheap & cheerful tools.

Nice blast! If it's the 'sharp' edge that bothers you when you said you expected it to be more comfortable, you can lightly run some fine grade sandpaper along the edge to remove the 'sharpness' and it really helps a lot without visibly noticing that it's been done. I even did one of mine by running the shaft of a screwdriver down the edge using a bit of pressure to remove the 'edge', if that makes sense. Sounds brutal, but it does the trick and makes such a difference. :cheers:

I do have a soft spot for the kick/fuse/blast range. :cool:

Yeah, I did that right away, but it's just that the contours don't match/fit my hand and the Zytel is even more rigid than I imagined. Of course it's still very usable, just not more comfortable than similar tools with simple rolled edges, despite its design. For me at least.

I think this thread deserves a bump!  :D I think the blast has the best ergonomics for the pliers! And a rock solid toolset in the handles! One of my faves! :multi:

It is! And I agree! So many tools so little time...I have 7 leathermans now and I just can't seem to fit some into the rotation. But the ones I come back to are always Wave,Rebar and the Blast :tu:
