A message from someone you may have heard of
on: July 04, 2008, 02:26:36 AM
I got this message recently from Tim Leatherman, and I wanted to share it with everyone:

Dear Friends at Multitool.org-

 

Congratulations on your second anniversary. I can remember back to our second year here at Leatherman and it was very busy; so I’m sure you have your hands full.

 

Please extend a big thanks to all your contributors. All the pages of great discussion and insight are excellent. It’s so nice to read comments from people who are as passionate about the design and functionality of multi-tools as we are.

 

Have a great second year and here’s to many, many more for multitools and the folks who review them and hold us all to a higher standard.

 

Regards,

 

Tim

That was until he saw the MT.O video with me in it and found out I EDC a SURGE!!!  Now I'm his favorite!

While I can't divulge any of the identities I know, I would like to point out that all the major manufacturers, with one notable exception, have people reading this forum and checking out the reviews and Multitool Encyclopedia.  Taking advantage of independent and honest information like this is what puts companies like that at the top of the game.  Still, it was fantastic to hear from The Man himself!  Apparently we made a bit of an impression on him at the SHOT Show! :D

Leatherman tools are great, but the man himself is truly a legend. I find it very impressive that Tim can take time out of his busy schedule to wish us well. :multi:

Ok, now I'm convinced that Leatherman123 is on LM's payroll!  He is way too enthusiastic about the surge (e.g. THE SURGE!!!!!!!!)   Plus he just uses way too many exclamation marks!

Also, what about Spoonrobot?  That guy's reviews are just a bit too professional!   Plus how does a guy just happen to know what Diamond Layer Coating is??

Reveal yourselves!!  Let's see some income tax returns!!
