Not sure when they dropped the fish hook file groove. This PST II from 0903 has nice aggressive file and plain diamond surface.  :tu:

Approximately since mid-2002.

I finally got it  :)
Really first ever Cabela's PST (serif font of etching on knife blade) with first original leather sheath (large snap cap, clear and off-center Cabela's logo, no spacers inside on rivets).

That's about as cool as a Leatherman gets! Well done, great find. Looks in great condition too!  :like:

First time I've seen the centre hole in the pivot?  ???

On early PST's pliers heads (~1983 - 1984) this centre hole in the pivot is usual and often.
Later PSTs and JPSTs hasn't these holes.

Wow .... erm  ....   Wow  :)

Congratulations - Although I'm surprised you did not have this already.
I guess the features you describe above are different form the other early Calelas PSTs
It's the first time I have seen the blade etching (although, I note, it is in my table in the first post!! .....  I had to check !!  ;) )

It's great to see you still getting excited about a single PST - given your collection  :D  - So I guess this was a bit of a Holy Grail !!   :tu:
And it's in great condition.

It's an amazing bit of history - I wonder how many of these are around the world? - I bet TL has one !!!

Of course, I already had few Cabela's PSTs, but this one has earliest and rarest knife blade with serif font ethching.
Sans serif font etching more common and occurs on later PSTs.
