Leatherman PST chronology project
« on: July 27, 2008, 10:03:51 PM »
The original PST was a standard catalog item from 1983 when it was introduced to 2004 when it was discontinued. In those 21 years there were many subtle - and not-so-subtle - changes made to the legendary tool. Most were evolutionary sort of things that made the tool better, like the stronger plier head pivot in 2000, or the hard wire notch added in the early 1990's.

I'm trying to compile these changes and put together some sort of chronology time line. (With Roadie doing the actual time line art work of course!) :D

What follows is a list of PST features and my best guess as to when they were implemented. It starts with the original riveted tool of 1983 and then ends up with some of the final changes of the early 2000's. The dates are only educated guesses.

[Edit (March 2016): The list below is updated as per post #91 (September 18th 2008) of this thread.
For a tabular/pictorial representation of this information (and a little more) look at the table added below.]

But I need some help. Please take a look at your PST (everybody has a PST don't they? ;)) and tell me where it fits in. Does your PST have:

•   Rivets or knurled screws?

•   (Old) small diameter or (new) large diameter plier pivot?
•   LEATHERMAN alone cast into plier pivot? Or with USA? Or TOOL?
•   A hard wire cutter notch?
•   Handles stamped with what? (see pictures in next post for examples)
•   Inch ruler only, or inch/metric?
•   Date codes?
•   Drop point knife blade or clip point? (saber?)
•   Knife blade tang stamped LEATHERMAN alone? Or with USA? Or JAPAN?
•   Screwdrivers: pivot-in or pivot-out?

Thanks in advance for your info! :)

As regards stamping on PST's, there are quite a few variations. Here are just four of them:


POCKET SURVIVAL TOOL, from the early- to mid-1980's (note inch ruler)



Large font LEATHERMAN, from the mid-1980's (inch ruler)



LEATHERMAN TOOL, standard font, from late 1980's thru 1990's (note inch/metric ruler)



No REG or PAT number, from early 2000's (inch/metric ruler)

Thanks Spoon and Poncho. Your information has already prompted some changes in my original post.

What now reads as this:

1992?
•   Date codes added

Mid-1990's?
•   Hard wire notch added
•   Handles no longer stamped with REG or PAT number
•   Backside of handles stamped for the first time, with LEATHERMAN TOOL
•   Clip portion of knife blade made shorter (no longer a Saber)

Spoon, the fact that you have two 1996 tools, one with US REG TM markings and one without, would seem to indicate that is the year they dropped that info.

Does your PST have:

•   Rivets or knurled screws?
Knurled
•   Lanyard attachment?
SYes
•   (Old) small diameter or (new) large diameter plier pivot?
Don't know, need basis of comparison
•   LEATHERMAN cast into plier pivot, along with USA or TOOL?
Leatherman and USA
•   A hard wire cutter notch?
No, only self-inflicted damage
•   Handles stamped with what? (see pictures in next post for examples)
Leatherman(R) Tool; US REG TM 1325473; PORTAND OR
•   Inch ruler only, or inch/metric?
Inch/Metric
•   Date codes? What are they?
0294/0394
•   Drop point knife blade or clip point?
Clip Point (I think)
•   Knife blade tang stamped LEATHERMAN, JAPAN, or USA?
Leatherman USA


Also has a Marlboro Country Store stamp on the reverse of the handle. It's amazing how many cigarette cartons you can find on the streets of NYC just walking around as a kid.

It's also notable that Spoon has two 96 PSTs, only with hard wire cutter and one without. Maybe that's the year it was added in?

Good catch Woofer, thanks! (chronology in first post has now been updated)

And thanks for the info. I'll snap some pics here so you know what I mean about plier pivots and knife blades.

Dave, when you get a moment could you double check this? I would think a 1993 model would have USA cast on the plier pivot.

To elaborate on this business of pivots and blades, please see the following pics:


Sometime around the year 2000? (need more date info please) they switched to the new style plier head, which is obviously stronger than the old one was.



The middle style blade is nicknamed the "saber" because of its big sweeping clip point. Later on they made the clip point smaller (top picture)

That's interesting. I've seen the Juice models with USA ground out, but never a PST. Keep hold of that one appletreeman ( or trade it with me :D ).

Bob - it is the middle of the three blades (sabre) on the PST I mentioned.

Ahh good, so we've narrowed it down to sometime after 1993 that they switched to the new knife blade. (Darn, I should have been asking about this from the start so we could see what Spoony's 1996's were)  :-\

For those that don't know, the "USA" was ground out on some tools at about the time of "that" court case. Best theory I've heard is that a large quantity of castings saying "USA" were still in stock in Oregon when the ruling / decision to drop the USA was made. Looks like they just ground it out to save getting any more fines.

Since then, the USA has been replaced by the word "TOOL", and many of the newer models simply say "LEATHERMAN" now.

Thanks fo rthe pics ATM.

Ah, I see.
By eye it was difficult to see if it was the mold that had been altered, or the actual finished pliers ground down. But from Dave's info and the closer photo it's the latter.

If anyone is still interested in it, i'd trade for a PST II  ;)

Okay now thats a combination that I haven't seen before RZ. A "Japan" knife blade combined with handles that say "LEATHERMAN TOOL" and have an inch-only ruler. Any way you can post a picture of the handles, similar to those in Reply #3  ?? 

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