Good eye, Sam! The 3rd has little washers I installed between the handles and plier body. 1/16" extra gap, so the bite isn't so bloody. :ahhh
The 4th is a version 4 needle nose with rivets holding in the pliers. I guess by version 4 they designed the plier head to give the handles some splay. Which is nice. :cheers:

I have a version 2 ( I think).. I tried to install a washer inbetween where you mentioned but it's not exactly working. The spring and the buttons are rather short.. Not enough to lock up the pliers when extended.. I ended up only doing on one side only..

It takes quite a bit of fiddling to get it perfect. Mine has washers on the "top and bottom" screws on one side and a washer in the "bottom" of the other side.
I carried a v.3 pinchy for over a decade before I got into Multitools as a hobby. At some point, using one everyday, you learn how to use it without getting pinched. Unfortunately I got my badge when I started putting the pinchy back into my edc rotation(and had forgotten the muscle memory to avoid putting my palm close to the handle gap) and got bit. :rofl:

Finally got a good deal on a V.4 BN. The other photos show it with the other Pinchy tools.


Left to right: V.1, V.2, V.3(small plier pivot), V.3(large plier pivot), V.4 BN, and V.4 NN. Please forgive the little piece of tissue in the V.3(small pivot) pliers. :facepalm:

They want your palm! >:D

I've got one more on the way. NIB V.3(small pivot). Since the current one is the only used one in the group.  :facepalm:
That does mean one thing. The current V.3 small pivot is getting a mod or two  :)

Got more than I bargained for with this NIB Pinchy. I bought it thinking it would be good to have in the collection since my v.3 with small plier pivot is my user pinchy. Well, this V.3 is more of a mix between a V.2 and V.3. It has the death awl instead of the file, lathe cut button rivots in the handles, and a less "finished" version of the small pivot V.3 pliers. It also only has a single Patent No. V.2 has Pat. Pend. And my other V.3s have two Patent Nos.
Anyway, I know there are about 20 variations of the Pinchy, so here are the photos.









Top is V.3 small plier pivot with sharper defined pliers.
Middle is the one from the packaging - note the handle rivot and patent No.
Bottom is a V.3 large plier pivot.

Nice writeup GLBM.  :tu:   Yep, Gerber definitely made lots of different variations of Mr Pinchies.

There was a Fiskars branded version which had some of the characteristics of the later Mr Pinchies but had the "death awl".  Your V2/3 might have been made around the same time. 

I wonder if some of these "transitional" versions were simply the result of the factory assemblers using up left-over parts from previous versions ?

Thank you for the information, Greg! :cheers:

That definitely makes sense with the single Pat. No, death awl, and lathed rivets. It may be I have never noticed single patent handles, but that was really neat to see on it.
I appreciate you chiming in, because I am pretty late in the MT collecting world and it seems many collectors have gone dormant. :ahhh

More Pinchy tools! :woohoo:

Mint FPR V.1 and Mint V.1 BO.











I don't think the box for the SS is the right one and am not sure if the sheaths are correct(especially the FPR, which should have had a leather sheath according to the instruction pamplet).  :think:

But, I knew all of that when I blew the money. I'm not as into boxes and packaging as some collectors, so I am pretty happy. :woohoo:

I know...'stop with the Multi-Pliers, GLBM'....but....I can't help myself. :ahhh :D
