New to multitools....got a ST Spirit
« on: April 13, 2008, 03:12:09 AM »
Hi all,

I have never really carried a multitool but have recently become VERY interested in them.  I got a few leathermans, specifically a wave.  It pinched the CRAP out of my hand.

Well, today, my wife had a package delivered and it was a gift for me.  She had seen me looking at the swisstool spirit last Christmas and had ordered it from felinevet but they didn't have it in stock.  They finally had it in stock and she ordered it.

anyway, I LOVE IT!!!  it's an amazingly comfortable tool and I am really impressed with the tools and the design.

I'm looking forward to hanging around here

take care,
Brett

Howdy Brett!

And congrats on the Spirit aquisition! Any wife that gives her man a multitool as a gift is quite a prize herself!  :D



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

Welcome Brett and Congrats!

great wife mister! you lucky man ;)

Since your a smart man (gotta wife who gets great tools) we'll edg-i-ma-cate you :twak:
Victorinox makes the Swisstool(and variations of) and the Spirit(with and without scissors). One is a tank,
one is nice and easy in the pockets, two different tools.

And since we already have a dope (me) and since you have a great wife, you can't have my job! :D

Victorinox makes the Swisstool and the Spirit. One is a tank, one is nice and small, two different tools.
We already have a dope (me) and since you have a great wife, you can't have my job!

Thanks for the welcome!  I am confused though!  On felinevet's website, it's stated as the swisstool spirit????

Anyway, thank you again for the welcome!!

I see it! now I'm confused! :ahhh

at the top he says; "Choose from The traditional Swiss Tool Series or the new Ergonomic Spirit Series"

and yet for the actual tool it says; "Swisstool Spirit" like you said! now I want answers!

what I would do is email felinevet (email at the site) and ask him. not only can he get most of everything Victorinox, but he has some of the best prices!
not everything he has is listed, he's a busy man, saving cats and animals, a really great guy. Don't forget to mention your a multitool member now!
your special now :D

well, you were spot on!  He actually did have the case and ratchet set for the spirit.  I think I might take the plunge.

Hello Brett!!!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new Spirit.

If you are trying to find her something, how about a pink LM Squirt?

Welcome to the forum buddy.  :) 

Like what's already been said, both tools are have the name "Swisstool" in their names, the Spirit being the "Swisstool Spirit" and the others being referred to as either a Swisstool (also called a Swisstool Standard), a Swisstool X or a Swisstool RS (there is also a Spirit S as well).  For info on what these different models are, there is a sticky at the top of this forum.

Good choice on the Spirit.  It it a fine tool and I am sure you will continue to be very pleased.  :)

I'm back!!
