My 700 arrived yesterday , I used it whilst working outside. The handles seen to be quite thick & the scissors struggled with some shade cloth trimming . But I do like it more than my 800 , I will try & get some pics done in then ext few days
CLUB NECRO! Seems I am very late in the Legend owner realm, but these tools are pretty neat.Two slightly different versions of each. The 700 is more obvious with the plier differences(USA version being older) and grips. The pliers are different on the 800s as well. The depth of the Gerber logo is deeper on the older(top right) version.And a Terminator 3 MP700 NIP is on the way.
Is it a reversible mod? That sure brings the old 800 into the 2010s in function.
Cool. Another tool saved from the dump!
The 800, you did the bit extension mod on, is an older version, since it has the Gator grip inserts. Later versions had flush rubber grip inserts. The build quality is also a bit better on the early ones.

Awesome assortment there, TP! In April I'll try carrying the 800 for a while. The second photo, where the grips are still there, are the later rubber inserts. The Gator Grip inserts protrude from the grip cavities. And the early 700s have USA cast into the pliers.Nice photos.
nice choice of tools. But Where's the rest of them? I have 2 types of cutters. The one on the left is grounded much steeper and it cuts much better. The right one is the common one now...
