I bought a Supertool 200 NIP 1005 datecodes and a Grey Kf4 NIP (didn't look for it for the datecodes) in blister packs just like that around 2008-09 and the ST200 packaging has 2008 on it :salute: They also had PSTs :cheers: I bought a ST200, a couple of the Kf4s (one for a member here :tu: ) but I didn't get a PST :facepalm: as I had been looking for older ones at the time and that one was still a bit higher than what I wanted to pay considering they had on been discontinued a few years at that time :tu: So I would say it is the latest datecode on a PST with newer packaging to get rid of the remaining stock after the big discontinuing of 04/05 :salute:


That sounds like a plausible explanation.

I'm always amazed at all the many changes made to the PST over the years of production.

As far as PSTs go, "YOU DA MAN"   :salute:   :tu:

It looks a bit confusing when PSTs made in Japan have "USA" on the plier heads.

Nice one :tu:

But come on Wow - Lay out the differences for us novices!!! They all look the same to me !!   ;)
Looks like they all have solid rivets and LM Japan on the blade, the small LEATHERMAN TOOL handle stamp (which is ususual for Japan made - right?), and even PO (Portland Oregon) on the handle, which is surprising!!

Although I can see the left two have USA on the plier head.
I am guessing the trademark/patent handle stamp is different? Lanyard?  - What else ???

Hmm - Just zoomed in on the pic - Nope - They all have US PATENT - Although I can see the rightmost file has a different cut!!

Thanks mate 

PS. And how do you know you have 'all four' ?  ???   :o   And there isn't another variation hiding out there !!

EDIT: PPS - How many in the collection now    ???    :D

Have a closer look at the tang on the files, also I'd be very surprised if all 4 don't have the indent in the rivets on the "back side" handles (which we call "hollow" rivets, even though they aren't really hollow).

You have more than me  :salute:  , I have only(!) 118 PSTs  (86 x USPSTs and 43 JPSTs)   

Good to see that not all PSTs reside in the US   ;)   :pok:

I'm sure you have way more PST variants than me    :salute:  , I have lots of duplicates, particularly the JPSTs (and also a severe lack of the enthusiasm & energy that would be needed to thoroughly inspect and classify and count the variants).  However, I believe I have the SS Gerber Mr Pinchy v1.x  territory reasonably well covered (mainly because there aren't so many variants)
