My first ever Leatherman;



Note the, errrr...'modified' pliers tips?


This poor chap really needs a bit of TLC, sharpened, tightened and fixing of the small screwdriver tip. :-[  Sadly not much I can do about the worn file. :-\

Yes it has a hard wire notch.   :)

The BO wasn't that hard to get but the BO CC was kinda hard to track down.  You wouldn't think it would have been as hard but the plain BO comes up on Ebay more than you would think :tu:  The SS CC was the 1 that gave me the most trouble but our own David fixed me right up on that  :cheers:

Count me in  :D.

My first multitool (and still one of my favorites), bought it late '94 (it's dated 1094), and this big boy was always by my side during the last 3 years of high-school and at my first job, it was only in 2003 that I bought myself a second Leatherman (Wave).

Since I can't seem to find a picture with only the Supertool on it I will post one with a couple of tools next to it  ;).

I cant find one so thought i would start one, great tool, here is my 0496 coded model  :tu:

hardwire notch/leatherman USA on pliers, has anyone anything different  :tu:


Sign me up.   I bought a Super Tool shortly after they became available and it replaced the PST as my EDC multitool. The Super Tool handles are dated 0495 and 0595.

My Super Tool lacks a hard wire cutter.

Parnass, from what I`ve seen in my ST`s it seems the hard wire notch was added on in mid to late 95.  :)

Thanks to Turnsouth I recently got myself a VERY nice BO SuperTool with wait for it............... Cap Crimpers  8) 8)






We have speculated that LM stopped making the spear-point serrated blade for the more robust blade tip found on the sheepsfoot serrated blade(ST200 onwards) due to blade tip breakage  :think: thankfully my two are SWEET  8) :D. My 2 ST's with my BO ST200 serrated blades for comparison below




Thanks again Turnsouth  :cheers: :cheers:.
Now for a BO with cap crimper Kick & Blast  ::) :gimme: :D

 ::) :D :D. Last year I finally landed all the retired LMs, recently I have been thinking about retired + BO  :ahhh :ahhh. I am being good & just going for BO + cap crimpers , hence wanting the soon to be retired Kick & Blast with cap crimpers  :D.

I am sure once I have those 2 I will be done  :think:   :D
