Suggestion on removing a logo or painting Leatherman Micra
« on: March 15, 2017, 03:47:33 AM »
I purchased a used Leatherman Micra off of ebay for cheap, looked in good shape, just had a business logo on it. Any suggestions for easy removal or should I attempt to paint the steel?

The painted ones are hard to come by in that good of shape :o I don't think I would do anything to it :ahhh If you plan on carrying it the paint very well may come off anyway and then the logo will go with it :think: I know we have had members that have had them hydro painted (camo pattern I think) but I can't remember how well the paint stayed either ??? Whatever you decide to do let us know and take pics as well :tu:

I do plan on carrying it as a key chain, I'd imagine the keys will scratch at it, so maybe you're right. I was surprised how good of shape it is and got it for 11$. Hydro painted sounds pretty neat, will look into that. Thanks for info!

The white/ green paint scheme looks nice. The boxy logo has an old-school feel to it. I would suggest to carry as-is.

Terrific Micra you got there  :like:.  If it were a company logo that you despised I can see removing it.  In this case it looks great IMO.  Good to hear you'll leave it be.  Your keys will eventually wear it down.

Nice buy. I agree with the other folks. Keep the logo.

The painted micra have alumium covers over the steel ones, I think.

You could remove them...
