Two weeks done and dusted.

The Leap worked great.

All the tools were used bar the tweezers.

I can actually recommend it as a EDC. Really good tool even if it was marketed to kids.

Glad to hear it worked out so well for you in those 2 weeks :tu: it would be nice if they hadn't just marketed this tool as a kids MT (good that they actually made one for kids though) or more adults would carry this :cheers:

Having the lock mechanism on the outside rather than in the path of the blades gives such a piece of mind when using the tool. The Removable blade is truly an all-star with that thickness, shape, and length. I have 4 tools on my desk right now...and since making the leap OHO I prefer it for opening just about anything. I can't recommend this tool enough, especially at the price point.

Really glad it is working for you,
any tools you really miss?

For everyday in photo shoots I don't. Well. Maybe the awl. It is always handy to poke holes in things to put cable ties through.

 Also a proper pocket clip. I added the clip and ring but sometimes it sorry if gets in the way. I like your paracord solution.

It also adds 4 feet of usable cordage. Using Powercord which has the normal 7 strand 550lbs cords, PLUS a 50lbs fishing line, waxed Jute (fire tinder), and cotton thread (for sewing), you get a lot out of it and it never damages my pants which is really really nice.

If you are using the scissor you can use it as an awl. I did this on some softer wood when I first got it. The tip of the scissor is nice and sharp.

Cheers,
H.G.
