The first were made in the USA but when Leatherman was still new they had to out source some production to Japan to meet demand.  I bought mine for 40 and I think anything over a hundred is probably too much

Yeah, I'm not a PST collector but $250 sounds like a heck of a lot to me.

Have a look at the PST chronology thread for some details of the Japanese PST. :)

The Japan PST in my sigline was about $40'ish shipped.  :) As much as I love PSTs, asking $250 is just ridiculous..  ::)

Does anyone know what month of 2005 the surge went into production?

Is the Juice SX actually out yet? I've only seen promo shots. :think:

Also might be good to correct the Skeletool and Skeletool CX to 2008. ;)

Fixed, thanks! I see the Juice SX is shown as a current tool on the Leatherman website, but you are right, I haven't heard that it is actually available yet. :salute:

Wasn't the Freestyle CX retired in 2012? Also, the Genus should've moved up two spots.

I moved the Genus up, thanks! :tu: But as regards the Freestyle CX, my notes say that it's retirement was announced in the summer of 2011. Is that incorrect?

Oh, I saw the CX in stores for almost a year after that.

I'm sure I've seen it here before, but cannot at this time. When did Leatherman start date stamping their handles? Mine is not stamped at all, so I'll assume it's in that time frame? Right?

Early 90s. November 1992 judging by the PST thread.

Interesting indeed. Leatherman moved the Kick, Fuse, and Blast into the "Retired Products" section of their website in late 2011, so that is what we based their retirement date on in this timeline. However, given the 1212 dates on Detron's handles, it is clear they were still producing tools throughout the entire year of 2012. :think: Hmm, perhaps they were still fulfilling orders, even though the tools themselves were no longer listed as "current" on their website? ???

In any case, I have updated the Timeline in the first post of this thread based on this new info. Thanks Detron! :)
