Me too.. I'd rather carry around a P4 or something.. I like the compactness and the full size pliers.. But, I like a lot of implements and functions!!

Well, I don't have one, so I can't help too much... But I can tell you I want one. :D It's got to be one of the most unique and fun MTs out there, if not the most functional. :P

 IMO if you're planning to use it as a stand alone tool,you'll be disappointed;but if you'll be using it with another tool or a SAK you're going to be very satisfied.

As a SAK carrier I like the mini.  I've got a NIB one but am after a beater.

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

My NIB Mini best $40 I spent. As a user I think it has many failings , I found the bottle opener last night to be some what tricky to use . But like some of my other retired LM's I really enjoy handling it & looking at it. It shows us the path/progression LM has taken to reach its current tools , just like spoony, so eloquently put in his photo essay of the Mini. For such a small tool it expands so well & it feels so tiny but unbreakable , in way that a Micra/squirt never could. It would be really interesting to see LM revisit the Mini , it would be a much better tool if they built it now , but LM has  little reason too because of the success of the Micra & Squirt.

Look what they did with the Wave a vast improvement and the Pulse (although retired was a replacement for PSTII) wasn't it :think: Plus the ST which is now the Core. I would love to see a new version of the  :ahhh !!!MINI!!!  :ahhh  :D

I traded both my minis - I never used them while I had them, but miss them now they're gone.


Ah well, leaves room in my cookie jar for a new tool!

I've actually seen one in Black , though I got the stainless variety.

I must say I'm a big fan of the tool.  It might not be the most useful multi but, as other have said, it is an interesting concept and an example of innovation (even if it wasn't that successful).  It feels very solid when opened up and the pliers work well.  Its more of a collectors piece really, but I imagine would pair up very nicely with a larger SAK and provide some useful portable pliers.

Rich.
