actually no, i will just mark it as repair only and theyll either fix it or send it back as is, ive done this numerous times and so far have had all tools repaired, key word so far

The possibilities abound. A file? Scissors? Saw? Mini bit adapter?
Any idea of the tool to replace the blade yet, jaya?

Core and Flair are both excellent additions for collections  :like:

The Kick is a very moddable platform :cheers: spoonrobot made an awesome mod many years ago with a Kick :tu: I think he took a Blast apart as well though and used a lot of tools from it :D

Can't wait to see what you come up with, jaya :popcorn:

Think I’ve seen spoons mod earlier... I plan to add both the wave file and saw... and maybe the scissors too... the large bit holder... :cheers:

Also plan to take the kick lanyard ring attachement and place them on my already modded rebar... that was the main reason for getting the cheap kick... less than USD 10...

So...just realized that the blast has the same pivot diameter on the plier side as it does on the tool side.. I think this makes the blast the single best Leatherman to Mod into a knife. Because you can put tools on both sides not just one.

Oh yes...mods incoming.

Kick fodder arrived today...

Am soaking it overnight in some water based rust removal thingo...This while waiting for some wave parts to arrive... and since am going to put the kick’s lanyard ring attachement on my modded rebar...

Will share some pics on the pivot diameter sizes tomorrow... The plier pivot barrels are wider compared to the tool pivots...

So I just got this beauty  :climber:

(scroll through to the right for more shots)



Loving the form factor. The only issue is that the pivots were jammed with what looked like dried soda. Easy disassemble, clean, then reassemble. Good as new.

Best tools I've gotten so far under $20.

Cheers,
H.G.
