Good to see that not all PSTs reside in the US   ;)   :pok:
In fact here's the question ...  ???

Are the greatest  two PST collections (ie most extensive) in the world outside of the US ?    :pok:    :)

Here is one more PST variation. You might not have it yet in the chronology project.
There is a limited heritage PST and a limited PST collectors edition (500 pieces)...
Now I found the heritage PST with no printed Leatherman signature on the handle.
This tool was the first price in a game on the Leatherman Heritage tour through Europe...
Mr. Timothy S. Leatherman personally offers to sign this tool by engraving.
Those tools are marked with "Limited Edition", no serialnumber inside the handles, just the production code 0717...
It comes in the wooden collectors edition box, with leather sheath and metall coin. Also inside was a picture card of Tim, personally signed on the backside and a PST sticker marked "Limited Edition" but even there is no signature on the sticker handle...
A very good advertising campaign, and now kind of unique pieces...
Maybe someone has more information about this "rare" edition.
Thanks in advance!  :multi:

It was for free.
I won it on a Heritage party in Germany, location was the Roadrunners Club Berlin.
It starts with a lottery on facebook. We won a trip to Berlin and the invitation to the 35th Anniversary Heritage Party. They gave us black Leatherman coins for free food and beverages.
My girlfriend also won a PST. We met Tim on that event. We had a great day!
2nd price at the game was a Leatherman backpack, 3rd price was a Leatherman wallet... Never saw this PST version before. Of course I have the heritage PST and the Collectors Edition, but this one I saw first time.

Thank you, wowaboro... And good luck for your search.
I'm just wondering how many "new" PST are around...
All Heritage and Collectors Edition PST I found had the production code 0717 inside the handles. No one knows how many PSTs the Leatherman factory is able to manufacture in just one month... :-\
Maybe thats the point of calling it "Limited Edition" ???
10000 pieces? 20000 pieces? Less than 5000 pieces?

Hey wowaboro,
Here is an update to the Heritage PST (no signature) in the wooden box (not collectors edition PST)... It is limited on only 400 pieces worldwide and was never for sale, only promotional gift or the 1st prize in a lottery on Tim's 35th anniversary "heritage tour" through several countries.
Well, this could be a rare piece of metal... :multi:

Andreas, where this information from?
Most likely you right about "no signature Heritage PST" in wooden box, just these boxes are strictly a certain number. But, what about "no signature Heritage PST" in paper box (as usual Heritage PST)? As I know, they also exist ;)

Ok... :tu:
I have never seen a heritage pst with no signature in the paper box design packing... I only know about the collectors edition pst in wooden box (500pcs, signature, limited number inside handles), heritage pst in paper box (25000+ pieces or way more, signature, no limited number inside the handles) and the heritage pst in wooden box (400pcs, no signature, no limited number inside the handles)...
The Leatherman Facebook page Germany is talking about 400 pcs worldwide for the version with no signature on handle in the wooden box. On the heritage party in Roadrunners club Berlin I was asking the promoter of the event, he was also talking about 400pcs and only 20 of them made it to Germany...
Of course I'm not sure if this is correct. Maybe I'm wrong. :oops: :salute:
Would be great if you could share some pictures of the design you have. :)

Thanks for info, Andreas :tu:
I think LM was ordered 1000 wood boxes from third-party manufacturer, 500 pcs for Collector's Edition PST (for sale), 400 pcs for "No signature Heritage PST" (for gifts and prizes) and 100 pcs for some other purposes  :)
 
But "No signature Heritage PST" themselves, I think, was made more than 400, maybe 1000, maybe more. And some part of that number will be in paper boxes. Now I'm in waiting mode :), but after a while, I hope, I can share proofs  ;)

LM PST BO DAK
A few days ago I found this Leatherman PST Black Oxide in my mail... Well, I had to pay for it of course, however I think (hope) it was a bargain.
Anyway, this PST BO has a pouch with the gold-colored Netherlands Defence Forces "interservice" logo printed on the flap.
Handles are inside dated 0696 and 0896.
The pliers have the notch.
The tool itself has a NSN inscripted in one of the handles: NSN 5110-01-321-8805, which is odd because the "01" means it is registered for the US.

Has anyone seen such a Dutch Army Knife LM PST before???

That is a rare find indeed.   :salute:  :salute:  :salute:

There don't seem to be many PSTs with NATO (NSN) markings around (at least I haven't seen many photos of them). 

The US part of the No only means the US was the first country to register that particular tool with NATO, and any other countries will use that same number.

I have an older PST with NATO NSN 786-5369 ^ 1992 markings.  I believe it was originally issued to Portsmouth (UK) navy divers.

Recently I received a PST 2 in pretty much almost new condition or with very little use. I have never come across one that's very highly polished. Not sure if it's stock from factory or someone decided to do it after. It looks really well done. Date coded reads 11/02.

It's there anything that's special about this?

As I've promised (to Andreas TTI), I've share the proofs of existing of "No signature Heritage PST" packed in paper box.
So far, I have item signed for some Melissa, but I hope someday Tim gets to Moscow and I will have the same, but "to Vladimir"  :)

Hey everyone. I have had my PST for m20 years or so. It was given to me, as far as I can remember, in the late 1990's. It wasn't new. I was interested to see if I could find out when it was made when I found this thread. Great work. I still cant quite place it though. Here are the details:



•   Rivets or knurled screws?
Knurled

•   Lanyard attachment?
Yes

•   (Old) small diameter or (new) large diameter plier pivot?
Old

•   LEATHERMAN cast into plier pivot, along with USA or TOOL?
LEATHERMAN USA

•   A hard wire cutter notch?
No

•   Handles stamped with what? (see pictures in next post for examples)
Leatherman tool, (no reg TM number) front and back stamped

•   Inch ruler only, or inch/metric?
Both

•   Date codes? What are they?
No

•   Drop point knife blade or clip point?
Not sabre later shorter clip area

•   Knife blade tang stamped LEATHERMAN, JAPAN, or USA?
Leatherman USA

I don't have any photos to share as yet. Can anyone help placing it in the timeline?

Hi Mate

Welcome to the forum
I am a novice PST guy and someone else will be along soon - Show us pics and wowbaro will tell you the year and probably the month !
But I'll have a go

So it's is a later model - Post late  80s - As it has the metric and imperial ruler
And possibly from the mid 90s as both handles are stamped
And of course pre mid 90s as you had it then and it does not have the hard wire notch

Are you sure there are no date codes stamped inside the handles - Sometimes they are very faint and almost impossible to see
Use some light and an eyeglass to check

And the handles just say LEATHERMAN  TOOL - Right ??  With no PORTLAND OR and no  US REG TM 1325473  - If so that would be very strange !!

I'll wait for the experts

Pictures needed !!!

Hi Huntsman thnks for the fast reply.

A couple of things the handle does have LEATHERMAN TOOL and PORTLAND OR. one handle is stamped on front and back. No trade mark stamp

You are right about the date code. I think I can see a very faint one. I will check it out with a magnifying glass and better light later.

No hardwire notch

Also welcome to :MTO: :cheers:
