I've got an interesting question regarding the locking tools on a ST, what happens if you open all the tools on one side of the handle how do you close them afterwards? :think:

Use a screwdriver to lift the latch up enough to unlock the tools.

Yeey.. I'm finally in a club...

Here's my baby:



My first Leatherman and first "proper" multitool. Marked 1100-0900, whatever that means... maybe September 2000?

Corwyn of Multitool, the First of His name, King of Victorinox, King of Leatherman, Gerber and the First Generation SOG, Lord of the Seven Wrenches, Protector of the Forum, Khal of the Bushes, called Corwyn Toolborn, the Unsharpened, Father of SAKs.

I'll be in shortly, just need to find it. :facepalm:
I'll say this, the original ST is to me what a multitool should be.
Big, Heavy, a little crude, but almost bullet proof.
Mine was purchased used (very  :D ), love it's floppy action.

Dare I say... Almost A Real Tool!!

I don't claim to know it all, but what I do know is right.

I have one :)


And, also, a question...


Did the original Supertool ever change to 'Pivot out' screwdrivers, like the PST?

Didn't need to change to pivot out as the lock stops them folding in.

I understand that, just was wondering... After all, the Pulse has the pivot out ones as well, and is locked too.

My guess is that with the Pulse they just wanted to save on machining new parts and so used as many from the late model PST/PST II as they could.  AFAIK the Supertool never changed tools, in fact the later Supertool 200 still used the 'pivot in' tools.

Does anyone know why lm changed the locking meachnism for the supertool 200?
The problem that all tools can be locked open and a screwdriver is needed for closure could have been circumvented by integrating a non-locking tool which just lifts the hook.
Afterall i do not think that this problem should arise all too often. What do you think?

Leatherman came out with the Pulse and saw that they could use the same unlocking design when they wanted to improve on the Original Super Tool in which the ST200 came out after.

Complete lockout of the tools must have happened enough to owners/users of the Original ST for Leatherman to change the design when making the ST200 to prevent it.

Prior to reading and joining this forum, I had never known about the possibility of locking out the tools on the Original Super Tool. I had only owned a ST200 and never knew anyone that had the Original ST or handled one before.

I've always kind of liked the lock on the original Supertool. Because it is simple. About the only thing that can go wrong is a tool lock out which is a inconvenience but not a teotwawki moment.

What? Enablers! Are you serrrrious? Where? I dont see any.
