Beautiful multi plier Kevin! That version is the same one I used survived over 10 years of daily use and was only retired, because I started collecting MTs!I would go weeks sometimes with nice blisters on my palm. Especially with lighting repair and those thin polished 3/8th IPS nuts they use on lamp pipe.
Version 1 has arrived. A beautifully polished MT. All tool are butter smooth to open. The quality exceeds that of my v.2, v. 3, and v.4. A very pleasant surprise! The scissors are pretty lame though. It really has a 'hand crafted' excellence about it.

Nice one Unless my eyes are deceiving me it looks has even had one of the the running improvements they made to the V1s as they went - a nail nick on a blade that actually lines up with the cutout in the handle (the very early V1s didn't) But nobody can convince me that that that enormously thick lanyard ring isn't also serving duty as a spacer. I reckon they could have added at least 3 more (admittedly very short) tools in that width.

Infamously bad Version 1 Multi Plier Scissors. They work on copy paper...sometimes.

Recently got one that in very good condition.. Almost new. But but but.... How do you use these things...? It's like zero handle splay.. I am sure everyone that uses these gets pinch in the palm/fingers and it's no joke... It's built like a tank.... Btw, I notice there's these 2 holes on both sides of the pliers pivot. Are they adjustable? Mine is kinda too tight to be usable.
And avoid cutting anything hard with the wire cutters. When it goes through, the handles close up very rapidly indeed, and hey presto, instant blood blister on your palm !
Not quite a blood blister but it is christmas so awarded.
