I think I'm one of only two people on the site that ever carries a MP700 ... and I can't even remember who the other one is  :rofl:

I've got an Urban Legend in my pocket as we speak    :whistle:

I'm in  :tu:



I think we might be part of a fairly exclusive club, though I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing  :think:

Ex-owner and edc-er here. :tu: If you consider the fact that the MP700 and MP800 came out around the same time as the old old Wave, these were totally great back then.

I gotta get my hands on an 800 at some point, and I'd love to get a 700 too.  As for exclusivity, what about the Strata owner's club?  :think:  I think it's just me and Def!  :)

I have the BG version with firesteel and pouch :pok: ... and I'm just trying to coax a standard model out of the UK warranty division as replacement for a broken MP700 I've had for a while

That's not REALLY a Strata then, it's the Bear Grylls Ultimate Survival Tool Mk II .  ::)  How does the MP700 compare to the Strata sizewise?

I'll be interested to see how the two Stratas compare actually. The 700 is slightly smaller than the BG one in all dimensions, but not by a lot

I carry an 800 when I need a quick deploying knife. It's still a nice tool all around with the spring loaded pliers and tool load out.
I had a new unused 700 but traded for a Juice with hard to use drivers. I should have broken out and carried the 700 for awhile. These are some of Gerber's best offerings IMO.

I used the scissors on the 800 yesterday while wrapping pressies and seemed ok, I like the chunky feel of the 800 but know it's not for everyone plus love the saw exchanger as has mod potential  :tu:. Looking forward too comparison pics mat  :tu:

I knew deep in my heart that at some point this year I'd get to join this club. I got this with badly nicked blade. Quite a few flattened areas on the cutting edge and a bit of rust. 5 minutes on a silicon carbine honing stone and 30 seconds on a Japanese water soluble stone did well





for a pocket sized multitool, I couldn't ask for a lot. This will replace my Skeletool and my Octane for now...or maybe until the Pocket Powerplier comes in

Cheers,
Gabriel

CLUB NECRO! :D

Seems I am very late in the Legend owner realm, but these tools are pretty neat.

Two slightly different versions of each. The 700 is more obvious with the plier differences(USA version being older) and grips. The pliers are different on the 800s as well. The depth of the Gerber logo is  deeper on the older(top right) version.




And a Terminator 3 MP700 NIP is on the way. :woohoo:

More pics.
MP700 Pliers side-by-side. Note the lower quality Gerber logo on the USA-removed later-model.

MP800 Pliers side-by-side. Note the difference in the jaw tips and Gerber logo depth.


MP800 ready for EDC battle. :)




Giant bumblebee approved.
