Thank you for the info!
I checked the net and examined a few pictures finding many as mine and a few with a thru cut out notch (sport), that does not cause an issue.

I may get the dremmel  tool  and try cutting my own notch.  My big digits just cannot get a grip on the blade. 

Fortunately my Rebar was in my bag and able to make the switch.

my MPs have holes in the blade,
but I had never seen a serrated wharnie before on a MP!  :o :like:

I bought this 450(well...it was a 400 w/ broken scissors and I swapped in a file) a while back for $5. It had initials scratched into it THREE TIMES. It has been driving me nutty.
It needs some more work, but the initials are gone. :)

Thank you, Sam! :cheers:
Indeed it is!, but it will also get some carry time, since I won't be concerned with scratching the impossible to repair satin finish.  :)

Still haven't finished the polishing, but did fix the plier head to a hybrid tip. Part NN and part BN.
Now I can throw it into my pocket. :)

It is possible that it will take the place of the venerable Mr. Pinchy...possible. :D

Sign is as well! Start to be quite happy with plier head. Rounded a bit but still fat tip to use head for nuts and stufs.

So I got these dirt cheap but my question is which do I open, the one on the left is newer and has gerber imprint dated 2017, the other says gerber USA on handle is 2015, I'm looking for the better sample for a user but assume the older one with USA might hold value better?

I will open the one on the right. Simply because I like the logo on the left alot. I have not see one with that logo though... 🤔
