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  :think: :think:. But I do like it more than my 800 , I will try & get some pics done in then ext few days  :tu: :tu:

I used the scissors on the 800 yesterday while wrapping pressies and seemed ok, I like the chunky feel of the 800 but know it's not for everyone plus love the saw exchanger as has mod potential  :tu:. Looking forward too comparison pics mat  :tu:

I knew deep in my heart that at some point this year I'd get to join this club. I got this with badly nicked blade. Quite a few flattened areas on the cutting edge and a bit of rust. 5 minutes on a silicon carbine honing stone and 30 seconds on a Japanese water soluble stone did well





for a pocket sized multitool, I couldn't ask for a lot. This will replace my Skeletool and my Octane for now...or maybe until the Pocket Powerplier comes in

Cheers,
Gabriel

CLUB NECRO! :D

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. :woohoo:

More pics.
MP700 Pliers side-by-side. Note the lower quality Gerber logo on the USA-removed later-model.

MP800 Pliers side-by-side. Note the difference in the jaw tips and Gerber logo depth.


MP800 ready for EDC battle. :)




Giant bumblebee approved.

Is it a reversible mod? That sure brings the  old 800 into the 2010s in function. :)

Not quite reversible.. I had to shave off material from the plier's side for the extender to recess properly.. If there's just one section of the extender, there's no need to touch on the pliers but hey.. Where's the fun in that.. I think I got this beautiful 800 for about $15.. With some broken parts..but mostly usable. So it's a good beater to do mod on.  :)

Yeah most importantly the pliers is still in good shape and the locks are in good working order. It's comes with a different kind of carbide cutter though. The type that have a angle grounded on the cutting edge. Not sure if it's the older type.. Dun see it anymore.  :cheers:

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. :woohoo:


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. :drool:

:iagree: nice choice of tools. But Where's the rest of them?  :pok:

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...

You know. That's a good question. I'll go get some 700s out and photo the cutters.
Edit: I recently made a video showing the replaceable cutters working quite well. But, I should see which version cutters it had.

Those must be from a different manufacturer than the cutters in my 700s. :dunno:
Early 700.

Later 700.

T3 700 just for fun. :)


Glad I took the pics, because the T3 700 has some storage surface rust starting in the pliers(probably from being in a blister pack for 16 years). Went ahead and took care of it with a rust removal cleaning and oil coat.
