but this thread is "Kick, Fuse, Blast & Core Owners group club." ain't it? :think:

I was merely complimenting the smoking deal you found on your KICK!!  ;)

It's funny, the kick is a tool I didn't know I needed. It's so compact and without long blades there is little reason for a lock mechanism. I just wish there were more tool options for Leatherman. I'd love a scalpel blade exchanger.

Happy,

I have been thinking about an exchangeable knife option on an MT recently as well. Been considering buying the Havalon Evolve to see how I like it. :think:

I took the blade out of my KICK
for most cutting, to folders I stick!

Gerleatherberman,

this is a link to my pinterest board where I have been collecting info on various mods. One of them already shows that a havalon exchanger can slot straight into Surge, which means it would also technically fit a wave as well (same pivot size).



https://pin.it/cqvdzrskqinnp5

The place I really want a blade exchanger like this is in a tool that I can leave primarily bladeless. The problem with the Wave/surge/charge systems is that they have multiple external slots that need to have blades in them. But multitools like: Rebar, Blast, Fuse, Kick, ST300, and Crunch can have the space taken up by smaller tools that already exist in the Leatherman System. All I really need is a scalpel exchanger that fits the internal system and it could go almost anywhere. I was going to start with a cheap, thick handled scalpel and plane it down to a particular dimension. the issue with this is that I don't have the tools to make sure the two sides come out parallel to each other. I have also seen a mod that turned a piece of plastic into a holder for X-acto blades that could fit into a leatherman bit exchanger.

Will look for the pictures.



I also think the moving piece from a Gerber artifact could potentially be changed to fit into a leatherman.

other potential things that could be modded




I also considered either the Rev or Signal as a perfect carrier for the havalon exchanger..but I came to one big issue...All of these tools have a needle nose plier as the primary tool which has limited usability...It can't function as a true wrench, or as a plier in most situations that don't involve a completely exposed Nut. Only the Crunch has the proper primary tool but its internal tool complement..well makes things difficult. If I could carry a stock Crunch in my job I would, but I need to mod it to be blade-less unfortunately. Which brings me back to needing to make a scalpel exchanger, requiring me to have the right tools in the first place..  :rant: :rant:

around and around I go....

Cheers,
H.G.

That blade exchanger sure is a nice idea :salute: I would like to see someone here accomplish that as well :like:

Managed to do something about my Kick fodder... I present to you the Knifeless Kick...



The parts that I need arrived over the weekend... A saw and file from a Wave... Figured I’d experiment with them as I don’t have an extra Blast or Rebar to source the parts...

It’s not exactly perfect... First, needed to do some grinding... used the broken off Kick blade as template... Note the difference in pivot hole size...



The spine also needed to be grounded flat to allow for proper closing of handles...

The saw fit in nicely... The file is a different story... did some grinding on the file tip and plier head to minimize contact...

Utilized the Rebar lanyard ring attachement and a thick spacer from the Kick left lying around...

The saw and file doesn’t snap in open position like the other tools... The culprit, oversized pivot holes... I can live with this for the time being... Will need to address this in the future... probably by enlarging the pivot holes and utilizing the broken off knife blade pivot and left over washers...

 :woohoo: Great work, jaya :tu: The diamond file in my Rebar was shortened and a new pivot hole made, if that is an option then that might make them lock in place better but if you can live with the way they are then I would just be fine with the way they are :salute: :like: Great toolset :dd:

Thanks Poncho :cheers:

For now I can live with it... thanks for the tip... I’ll try to avoid shortening if possible...

Nice work Jaya! I modded a Wave diamond file to fit my Rebar. Like Poncho, I cut it short at the pivot end. This allows you to cut the perfect shape for a good lock, and a new pivot hole (tip: use a ceramic tile cutter to drill the hole). Enjoy your Kick!  :like:

I will clarify that Steve was the one that modded the diamond file that is in my Rebar  :salute: He copied the design very well and it locks up great :cheers: He ended up wanting a more aggressive file in his, so I ended up with that beauty :like:

Awesome tips Guys... will definitely consider it... I was thinking of Enlarging the pivot holes and reducing spacers to a common diameter allowing the spacers for implants... tried this a few times on SAK mods...

cool mod, but you could just use the hybrid file from a blast next time and its a slot in easy peazy.

Yep, Blast parts definitely slip in just fine... Same family as the Kick and Fuse... But these are hard to come by in this part of the world... Hence why I went with the wave parts... :cheers:

I like the Blast file fine but the diamond file of the Wave is superior to me :salute:

Diamond files on a multi-tool seem strange to me...unless we are referring to a Surge (removable) because you generally need them for sharpening the tools that are part of the multi-tool.. :facepalm:

Bit narrow minded are we :pok: I use it for many things on the jobsite :salute: The diamond file can take burrs off metal tools much easier than a regular file and I can use it to sharpen chisels as well :like: plus many other day to day uses that require a fine cutting surface that can leave an item very smooth :cheers:
