I love the Blast as well :cheers: It was the first proper full sized MT that I bought as I got the PST that I have given to me from my Grandma (it was my Grandpas MT) :cheers:

I bought it in a gift set with a LM carabiner watch :cheers: :o :D I carried the Blast until I bought my first Supertool :ahhh and then it ended up in my truck as a backup tool in case I ever needed more pliers or (heaven forbid) if I ever forgot to bring one with me :ahhh ;)

I think as a stand alone the Blast is a very well rounded tool that wouldn't have to be paired with anything else and I would feel like I had everything I needed :cheers: Of course no MT is perfect and I will always pair any full sized MT with a SAK :D

But anyways here is to the Blast :salute:

I agree Poncho!

I have been carrying my Blast a lot lately, and I've really enjoyed using it.  I missed having one after I sold my last one and it's been a trip down memory lane to be using it again.

I sent mine back to Leatherman after snapping the flat tip screwdriver and got a Rebar in return.  Not a bad thing, but I sure miss some of the Blast's tools.

The Rebar is a great MT in itself as well but I wouldn't like losing my scissors :-\ That is why I wished they would bring out a PST 3 or a Pulse 200 or something with a tool set similar to either the Pulse or a hybrid PST/PST2  It needs a PE blade and a diamond file plus scissors and an awl, plus the usual flat heads and phillips and since we are dreaming a saw as well :D All on the Rebar chasis or even on the Supertool 300 chasis :gimme:

I think a blade exchanger similar to the Surges and a bit driver on a smaller chasis would be excellent as well :dd:

We've all been saying that for years, but the bleak truth is LM views the Rebar as the PST3, and it won't get any better.  The Rebar is a great tool, but it just isn't what PST/Pulse fans were expecting.

I agree a thousand percent!  I like the Rebar but it's no PST.  I look at it more as a scaled down Super Tool 300, but when it comes down to it and I had to pick only one Leatherman, it'd be a PST II.

Quite sad as its more a small ST300 than a PST.

This is a club I need to join. Definitelly. The Blast was my first LM and first plier-based-MT and I loved it the day I got it.

I got my second Blast just this week. In case I gonna loose the one I have. They are discontinued. Sooner or later there won´t be that much on the secondary market - at least to reasonable prices.



I prefer it over the Wave. One hand opener toos are not so easy to carry here. And I need a legal reason for carrying it.

It's funny, I have been a blast fan for years and years.  I have bought and sold probably two dozen or so over the years, and whenever I wanted to sell one I could only get $25 to $30 for it, if it was new or in near mint condition.  I was thrilled to find my latest one for $45.  It never ceases to amaze me that a tool that isn't popular in production all of a sudden becomes worth something after it's retired.

That's always the way it seems Merc :-\

I have noticed a trend (coincidental or not :think: ) on eBay that whenever MTO talk more about certain tools (a surge of threads about various different retired models) they seem to go up in price at least for a while but especially if a tool is first retired (it does take a while for people to find out but as soon as they do they tend to put rare and hard to find in the title and then the prices skyrocket) ::) :D

Of course this happens with most anything else on there as well :D

100 % agreed. Poncho & Mercury.

When it´s gone it becomes interessting, because it´s gone. The only tool that still is available here on evilbay during the years is the PST. It doesn´t rise or fall in price. Always seems to be around 35.00 €. At least here.

Yea, the PST has remained pretty constant as far as I can tell.  I have one that I don't really use, but I never buy any others.  I see them all the time on Ebay though, with that "vintage" tag thrown on there.

I agree that a regular PST price remains fairly constant :tu: But before MTO really started digging around and finding out all the info on the old pre-datecode and japanese PSTs most ebay auctions just listed them all (well mostly) as Leatherman Tool :D but with all the new info that was gathered the large font PST and several of the older models started to get labeled more correctly than they were before and the prices started to go up accordingly :ahhh so for us collectors anyway ;) we kinda shot ourself in the foot so to speak :oops: :D I rather have all the info readily available though because it gets more people into collecting thereby growing the forum  :cheers:
