Not that I am aware of.  Once again I have had to cancel my plans to go.

Does MTO automatically get a ticket?

Couldn't we send an administrator or moderator if Grant can't make it? Or is it not a swap type deal?

I'd go but i'm a dumbass when it comes to cool stuff and explaining what i saw. My photography skills are sub par, my meet and greet skills are even lower. Plus i'd get kicked out after applying the five finger discount at a few booths. >:D  :facepalm:

I'd happily go for MT.O but getting a trip to Vegas together in such limited time would be basically impossible.

In the old days MTO was represented yearly at shot, but nobody has been there for a few years now, since the schrade tough tool incident.

From past experience in the forum, if a member can go there and report I think Grant should be able to help them with tickets, contacts etc  (no money).

Are you referring to the incident where J-Sews crushed one with his bare hands? I thought that was just one he bought. Are you telling me he did that at Shot Show, to a display piece?

Originally I had planned to go this year, but my plans changed.  Then, it looked like Megan would go for us, and we made arrangements for her father to go with her as her photographer.  Then she got a job in Canadian Parliament and that killed that idea.  I went back to my original plan of me trying to go, but since I am now injured I can't go to the corner store let alone Las Vegas.

We have also sent other people in the past, but it is something I really don't want to do again, for reasons I'd rather not mention openly.

And yes, the Tough Tool crushing was a display piece, at the Schrade booth.  I don't think they even noticed to be honest.

If Grant ever changes his mind, I'll happily go cover it next year. I'm a former journalist turned PR guy in the motorsports industry, so I'm more than familiar with how to cover trade events and how to properly conduct myself at them, and I have the requisite writing and photography skills to do a proper article.

No piccies yet, but nice to see them putting a bladeless tool back on the market. I know we caught a sniff of this a while back, but nice to have confirmation. They really missed a trick not bringing something else out when they discoed the bladeless Fuse


I will however NOT be buying one  :D

Skeletool RX!!! Not that exciting, BUT IT'S ORANGE!!!!!  :rofl:

"Leatherman the leading pliers based multitool company has announce a first responder version of the Skeletool known as the Rx. The knife features a serrated blade with more of a Sheep’s foot share in 154CM premium steel.

The tool features a carbide glass breaker instead of a Phillips screw driver, comes in emergency orange, and will start shipping in February."

I saw on another site that the orange is Ceracoat. The carbide glass breaker is a bit. Two things: 1) does this mean it will be available for sale 2) you have to have the tool open to use it - could be problematic trying to generate enough force in open mode.

I figured this is what it would be, but I was hoping for bigger/better scissors. And maybe a bit driver.

I was ready to be cynical about this one, but I actually like the look of that.  The blade shape looks a little different to me too.

Doesn't look like they moved the nail nicks to line up with the handle cutouts.... which might look a little sloppy when all closed up  :-\

Not surprised they went for Wave type scissors to standardise the range nd keep the inventory and tooling costs down.

Any news on a ruined Wave with Rebar plier head yet?

Interesting tool progression there. Surprise they dropped the Phillips though, and not sure how you'd safely use a glass breaker in the same place. Must be removable though, as there's a bit stored in the handle
