I do like a good pair of scissors, but are these scissors on the new Wave the same as on the Blast? if so they do me fine
Really?/! Why is that?
You've got me started now. The first thing I don't like is the number of flat headed screwdrivers. Why have 4 That just seems such a waste to me which brings me on to my second issue which is that it doesn't have an awl. I just cant understand why Leatherman would see it a better option to have 4 flat head screwdrivers over 3 with an awl. I also really don't like how much flex there is in the handles. As I have a few other LM's, including the PST and Supertool, this was really disappointing as one thing I always liked about LM was how strong they felt. I could cope with it if it was just noticable when using the pliers, but it is also quite noticable when using one of the screwdrivers (one of the FOUR flatheads I expect ).I don't like the liner locks either. When I received my Wave one of the locks was broken, so it was sent off to LM to be repaired where they actually replaced both handles with new parts. When I got it back, I tried it and noticed that the lock didn't really engage very well on one of the blades ( a common find with these and the Charge I hear) and that it failed very very easily. This lock now engages much further but still fails very easily with just a lightish tap on the top of the blade. This admittedly could probably be fixed by LM though.Lastly (yes the rant is nearly over ) I think that my major dislike with this tool is how disappointed I am with it. I expected so much more from it TBH as I always considered the Wave (or Charge) to be the "ultimate" multitool and I guess that by getting one and not really liking it just makes me even more sour about it.
The (new) Wave is great! The Leather case that comes with it leaves much to be desired, but the tool is just well designed.

I just love it when everything works out okay. Hehe, congrats on the successful aquisition Poncho. Saw blades are free, but you'll have to wait for the next batch as I'm fresh out. PM me with your address when you get done drooling over your new Wave...
new wave is better beacuse it has a good locking mechanism.
