That's right!

SOG used to advertise that they were next in the market after Leatherman!

Got a good trivia question for us? :D

I certainly do !  :D

When first appeared, the Leatherman Wave had what looked like a revolutionary handle design. However, there was a previous multitool from another manufacturer which sported the same features even with a Liner Locking Blade included. 

Which multitool it was ?   :think:

Kershaw A-100?

Exactly !  :tu: The Kershaw A100 with it's groundbreaking design is considered the forerunner of two Leatherman Multitools, the Wave and also (being the first multitool to feature locking plier jaws) the Crunch.

Your turn Cody ! :salute:

Sorry Grant, been a busy couple days. Heres my question (careful, its a tricky one):

How many multitool manufacturers have developed replaceable wire cutters, and which manufacturers were they?

That would be it! for those that aren't aware, SOG produced a version of the BlackTip multitool for West Marine that had replaceable wirecutters. However, the wire cutter design was faulty, causing them to shatter prematurely. The tool was quickly recalled and pulled from the shelves, and remains an interesting little tidbit in multitool history.

I remember reading that years ago at the forum, but there are no pics of that Blacktip IIRC.
I couldn't find any picture back then, and nowadays it's the same. Remains an unseen mystery for me. Not from users, not from SOG, and West Marine didn't help there either.

Any help there, folks?

It is very possible if anyone has one it is Bob (J-Sews) if he doesn't then I am afraid there may not be many else on here that would have one :shrug:

Wow...instant Jaw Drop   :like:
What I agree with is the fact that there would most likely be cracking issues due to the huge force you can apply with the C.Leverage in the BlackTip, and how fine and precise those jaws are

Any other oic? Wishful thinking  :drool:

I'll post some pics tomorrow, without my ugly mug in them so you can enjoy looking at it!  :D

I am relieved to see that I still have it- I had given away a BlackTip last year and I was hoping I hadn't grabbed that one by mistake!   :ahhh

So I think DKS is up for providing a question, but to pass the time until he does, here's an interim one:

What was the first plier based multitool with scissors?
