Another great LM collation Loki  :salute: :salute:

The Stars & Stripes besides looking very cool has a slightly different handle, no tweezer cut out.

When he wrote the review dealt with the Leatherman. I was told that the color painted micras produced from 1997 to 2008, but I have not seen micra painted stamped "Tool" on the shears. Tell me - anyone have any such models?

Nice collection of Micras. The actual painted Micras were short lived as the paint chips off rather easily. The red one I have has a date codes of 1099 0800. I bought it out of a display case in a hardware store several years ago. It stays in its box and only makes rare appearances.    :D

What? Enablers! Are you serrrrious? Where? I dont see any.

Lovely stuff :cheers:

Although I don't carry one much these days, the Micra was my 1st LM and I still have a huge soft spot for it :D

The collection is far from complete. Lacks at least 10 micra ... In addition will be released 30th Anniversary Micra next year. And probably not in the same version ...

PS Advice please anyone has Colored Painted micra with the date 2002-2003, later ...

I've got a few painted Micras. A couple Red, a couple Blue, and a Green one, but all of them are stamped USA.


Nice collection Loki :salute: Are you still hoping to get a Brandon Roy version? LINK

I have owned maybe 10 or so over the years, always they were the stainless/unpainted versions. Several I gifted.
Anyway, I have about 7 in my drawer now of differing vintages. There are definite differences in the degree of polish between them. Some have a very high state of polish (usually just the bodies/handles), similar to a Victorinox SAK finish, whilst others are more utilitarian. I go for the highly polished myself.
I have a few toothpicks I've whittled to fit between the tweezer prongs, and transfer the toothpicks if I switch between them.
