I think I like the old style locks better actually.  They're less intrusive on the handle aesthetics/ruler.  I'm assuming there must have been a functionality issue if they were changed to the wider style we have now?

This Blast was the first LM I ever bought new.
In 2004 a coworker sold me his Kick and I was so impressed with it I went out to Home Depot to get another and I ended up with this Blast.

I am a carpenter so this usually is not my first line tool but I always like to carry a MT and the Blast has helped me out numerous times.
Just recently I was in a very tight space at the Philly auto show that took me about 5 minutes to crawl into and I found out I had to cut some  1/4" shims and I only had my Blast on me cause it was too tight for my tool belt.
So after a few saw cuts and scoring with the blade I had the plywood cut and all was well.

Over the years I have also used a Wave, Kick and just got a Rebar but I am sure I will always have a place for the Blast in my toolset.

i love my blast. ill have to post pics here at some point. I got a ss blast as a gift for my dad a few years back and he liked it so much that he got me a blast (knowing that i have a lot of leatherman's and knowing i didn't have a blast) in camo and with my name engraved on the blade.

I've used it a few times but i don't want to damage it because it's really important to me and holds a lot of sentimental value. i think its going to be the only one i have that's not a user.

ill have to get another one to use lol  :gimme:

I have a couple of Blasts. Only one I have a pic of is my modded Blaster (ReBlast? BlastBar? never could settle on a name). The other one I have is engraved with my name and wedding date. I gave all of my groomsmen an engraved Blast as gifts.

I'll jump on this club, the blast is my favorite tool when using drivers, the zytel is nice and rounded at the end of the handles and is super comfortable especially if you have prolong use.

I also have a Blast. I always wondered when Leatherman would use zytel in their products. Love the tools and comfortable handles. Mine is engraved as well. I wrote a review on it in another forum several years ago. I think it is one of Tim's best tools.  Thanks for the topic!

I am not one for sheaths mostly because they are BULKY....


I can not be the only person who saw this and was like huh what?!  :think:

You guys are a very very bad influence. Never really thought about getting a Blast until tonite.  :facepalm:

Is there a pocket clip for the Blast? Just seems to have a great selection of tools I would use a lot but is stuck with the ever so stupid mini driver.

What is up with the mini driver? They must have a kick smurf lobby or something.

Wave, Surge, Skeletool, PST I,  Squirt S4, Micra, Rebar,

I can safely say that I have now become a PSA/Enabler :D!!

No pocket clip that I am aware of.

Don't diss the Mini-Driver, it helped me fix my dad's reading glasses more than once and I use them to tighten the screws on my glasses/sunglasses every so often. It also helped when I needed to change the transponder chip on my car keys by helping to gently pry open the plastic casing without breaking the mounting clips and when I was helping my bro tune his RC cars, I recall him asking for it a few times but that's not so much my thing so only he knows what the smurf he did with that.

Would a pocket clip from a KICK work? If not, just redkneck mod a pocket knife clip on to it

Well it would not just screw in like on the Kick. The Kick's pivot screw has a threaded hole in it for the clip to screw into. The Blast does not. If you had the pivot screw from a Kick you could install it into your Blast though.

Glad to see the blast getting some love.  It's a very capable tool, and one of my all time favorites.

Nice mod toolslinger   :tu:



I like my Blast as well but I also would rather have an awl than the mini driver but over all a great tool.

Oh yes, I had forgotten about this club.  I'm now back in after being reunited with my Blast thanks to the kind Captain to whom I sold it a couple years back :salute:  Much like you Mercury, I missed it, especially when there were instances of Blast love on the forum.  Glad to have my first ever multitool back in my possession :D
