My first SwissTool!
« on: January 22, 2012, 08:49:13 PM »
I won't labor this or review it since I am a johnny come lately... But I am mostly a Leatherman guy and while I've had the traditional saks before, I've never had one of the bigger tools. I had heard about fit and finish so I have always wanted to check one out. This tool is the basic model without scissors. In a nutshell, I AM very impressed with the attention to quality and finish. It's without a doubt the best fit and finish MT I have owned of any brand. I won't take time comparing and contrasting... I just really love it. It's also as tough as a tank. Definitely a keeper!

Welcome to a whole new world   :tu: :D

The Swisstool was my second full sized MT (after a Gerber Suspension). Many tools have come (and some have gone) since then, but none have been able to unearth the CS Plus from my EDC bag  ;)

The attention to detail and precise fit and function is fantastic. No tools rubbing each other etc etc

I'd be intersted to hear your thoughts after a month or so, after you've given it a good workout  :tu:
