How is this for an heirloom? :D

I bet that blade is never getting used again.

Did you ask Tim if he plans on releasing leftie friendly versions? As a leftie I still love the SURGE!! but I could do with having the knife blades on the opposite sides and to have the serrated blade ground to match.

I am not exactly impressed with where Leatherman has gone with their tool lines,But.....
I am impressed with what he did for Def.

Note........Before I am lynched,I still think that Leatherman makes a decent tool,I have nothing against anyone's choice in a MultiTool......

To be quite honest, EVERYONE at the Leatherman booth was generous with their time and as enthusiastic to meet us as we were to meet them. One gets the clear impression that not only is Tim Leatherman an outstanding design engineer, he is also a wonderful "people person." We found ourselves on a first name basis with him, his wife, and several other Leatherman employees by the time we left. Truly a great experience. :)



Oh, and one more thing; during our stay at the Leatherman booth, several of you gentlemen were asked about by name.... ;)

Thats is what I meant.Just because their product line has gone in a different direction,it does not make them bad people.I am glad that they were nice to all who visited.I just wish that they would run a "Classic" line.

Bob,

It's great to know that they visit our site, actually know some of our names, & know what we write.  Maybe we can actually have a relationship in the future with these folks designing even better tools going forward.  I'm open to it.

Ah but did they name our "screen names" or our "real names" that would tell us how well they read the forum! Its good to hear that we do have the ears of various company employees though, makes it all this talk actually worth something :P !

The Leatherman folks made it clear that they would prefer to keep a low profile around here and simply gather information and opinions. The thinking is that active participation in the forums by them could perhaps affect the honest feedback they would otherwise get.

Which, we learned yesterday, is the same strategy that at least two other knife and tool companies employ here at Multitool.org :)

So consider your posts wisely my friends, as you never know who might be reading them!

I wont.If I did they would not get an honest opinion of how I feel.Although hearing you say what you just did about them makes me rethink me feelings about them a bit.I might even start saving a bit of loot to pick up a new Wave.
Just dont tell the SOSAK people....LOL

That's fine, but I think we have some ideas that are pretty good around here for tool improvements.  I would dearly love to see some of them actually make it to future tools.  Working with us could lead to even better tools with the kind of detailed feedback we can give.  I've personally worked with companies like this including Bose & several others.  I think it would be better than the car Homer Simpson designed.  ::)

I'll try not to let it affect me.

arh-hurh-hem!

JUST QUIETLY, BETWEEN US MEMBERS, I THINK THE KICK/FUSE/BLAST ("TRADITIONAL") LEATHERMAN STYLE RANGE SHOULD BE IMPROVED UPON. IF NOT BY ADDING ADDITIONAL ITEMS TO THE RANGE, THEN BY CREATING INTERCHANGABLE BLADES AND EASIER END USER MODIFICATION.

SOME OF US WANT A GODDAMN REAMER ON OUR REGULAR SIZED MULTIS!


ALSO: SEND ME A SUPERTOOL, NICOLE HAS MY ADDRESS.

Unfortunately not.  I grabbed this one from a member on KF because I knew Nomad was interested, but he doesn't deal financially with Those Who Dwell Atop!  I thought I'd give him a hand and pick it up then work some kind of trade.  If that didn't work out, it could join my collection.  Instead I'll put you in second place if Nomad and I don't get something sorted out.
