When the PST Heritage edition was announced I liked the idea of being able to buy a new PST, but the 299,95 Euro retail price was a bit over the top in my opinion ("a bit" being an understatement). After a couple of months the retail price dropped down to 249.95 Euro, which was still more than I was willing to cough op. Early January I noticed that a local outdoor-shop had the PST Heritage on sale at -30% discount and I decided to go and have a look, but I never got to the store since I found a couple of old Wengers in another store first that day ...
A bit later they were at -50%, but by then I started hoping they would eventually drop down to -70% and I started the waiting game ...
And finally, last thursday around midnight, they dropped to -70%, and I went for it and placed my order
And yesterday I got an e-mail saying that I could collect them at the local shop, so here are the pics (taken indoors with smartphone, so nothing fancy
Oh, and by now you guys should know what the standard procedure is when something costs less than 1/3th of its original price, right ?
First impressions ... The NIB old stock PST that I bought a couple of years ago felt better, this one feels pretty tight (but will get better during use I guess), and it was quite "dirty" out of the box, fingerprints and grease (on a regular Leatherman this wouldn't even catch my attention, but since this is supposed to be a Special Edition, in a special box at a special price, I was expecting more maybe ...
And the sheath, well, it looks nice, but compared to an original leather PST sheath, this one feels ... well ... it just doesn't feel the same ... Maybe American cows aren't what they used to be, who knows ?
Anyway, I'm very happy with my Heritage PST's, and at 74,99 Euro a piece they are a steal over here. Even when rumours about the PST being part of Leatherman's line up again (a "normal" version at at a "normal" price, that is) in the near future, I doubt that the "normal" price will be lower than the 74,99 Euro I paid for these Heritage versions now. So either way, one happy TG-24 here
