Anyone know these guys?

This was a bit of a surprise- I wasn't expecting to meet "the Man" himself at the show, but lo and behold there he was!

Naturally, we had to get a picture! :D

Bob wasn't very nice to him at all- in fact, this is the fourth picture we'd taken as Bob kept making faces and sticking up his fingers behind Tim Leatherman's head...   >:D

Just kidding- he seemed like a really nice guy, but we met up with him about 5 minutes before the end of the show so we didn't get much of a chance to talk to him. 

And if you think that's a great memento, wait till you see what's in store for today! :D

Oh, I thought you were quoting Tim Leatherman here, Def.  ;) :D   He's lucky to meet supporters such as yourself, a rep of Multitool.org!  BTW, they always hold that show in the same place?

Blasphemy!

Actually I almost joked in my post that it was probably a Spirit... If he did, would that make the VicFans think more or less of LM?  :P :D

Nice! Wow... that's really nice of him. It's not like he could have just taken out a marker and gave you his autograph. That's some effort.

Bob and I also got him to autograph some PST's that we got at the show.  They were selling the PST's to support the National Shooting Sports Federation which is the organization that runs the SHOT Show.

Tim told us he was honored that we would go to such great lengths to customize one of his tools. Being familiar with the difficulties of manufacturing, he of course realized the challanges of reverse-dimensioning the new scales, machining them from solid aluminum, anodizing, and laser etching the logo. We had originally requested that he autograph the tool directly on the green scales, but Tim felt that this might result in chipping or damaging the anodize layer. It was his suggestion to autograph the blade instead, which of course came out fine. (lets face it, the man does know his multitools!)  :)


In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools
