Nice review. It could never replace my MP600 but I'd sure like to win one Would I use it? Probably not. But I'm sure it would get lots of OH/flicky action.
ofc blame Kirky for making me want an OHT. to be fair Joel shares this blame
Al,to be very honest,I'm surprised just how much I like it!Yes,I've been using it at work,as well as going down to the gun club. It's only on Thursdays drinking session that it's not been with me.In answer to your question of the proponderance of cutting edges: your not wrong,but I think that's down to the para-military nature of the tool. The rescue hook would be damn useful to anyone where there's lots of strap cutting needing done( for example,the loading bay at my work,as opposed to me as a salesman).In short,it'll be great for cops or paramedics,but I'm loving it in that its a LM that's working straight out of the box,and the fact that its a refined Gerber! Think of a MP600 as a Land Rover,the OHT is a Range Rover.It's one of those tools that's better in the hand than on paper,if that makes sense?
I have never understood the statement some have made that they thought the pliers were small. They look huge to me (although I've never used a Surge, ST, or comparably sized MT). Long needle nose, big bolt gripper, and they use the same size cutters as the ST. Maybe it's an optical illusion because of the way the handles cover the pivot area of the plier head?
Nice review! It's time to get a Rebar.
