What was your First, Last, & Favorite Leatherman?
« on: January 31, 2018, 11:31:43 AM »
  Out of curiosity, what was the first Leatherman multitool that you owned, and what was last acquisition to date?  :viking:

  • First: Marlboro catalog branded PST was my first. Parents saved up points and asked if there was anything I wanted from the catalog. The PST was the first to draw me in.
  • Last was a Flair, the SMURFIT NEWSPRINT CORP branded one that someone posted to the forum was the last Leatherman acquisition.
  • Favorite is a Charge TTi that I converted with Rebar pliers & awl, and carry a Leatherman Serac S2 in the side pocket.



• Leatherman Charge TTi (Mod) • Leatherman Signal • PocketToolX Piranha • Wenger 16520 Original Issue • LED Lenser M5 •
• Weber Y2K6 • Seagull S8 • David Hudson Bloodwood Didgeridoo •

That is a coincidence Outback, my first one was a Marly PST, purchased with miles, and my most recent is the Flair also.  :salute:

I have gifted or sold the other ones I had except a Pulse, so those 3 are favorites I suppose.  :)

First Leatherman was the original Wave. I searched the internet, or what the internet was back in '99 and compared the multools on the market and settled on the Wave. It was vastly different than the competition and had more tools than anyone else.

First: a Skeletool CX. I was a university student back then and was amazed by it's design. Not much of an ergonomic tool but I loved it.
Last: Wave.
Favourite: Wave or Rebar, I'm not sure yet :)

First was a PST, last was a JPST, and my favorite is a toss up between my OG Super Tool, PST II, or my Rebar.

First was an original Wave in 99 - I was aware of multitools, but had never come across anything like the wave before and pretty much bought the day after I first saw it... I spent about a weeks wages on it! Unfortunately another technician broke it a few years later, and the replacement Wave wasn't quite as good, but I still have the original pouch.

Since then I've gone through loads of various leatherman from Charges, Juices, Surges etc... but never the Crunch though!

Last one was a technically a broken PST I bought for parts.

Favourite, and the one I use daily now is bizarrely a very old PST I bought off ebay ( that you're all probably sick of seeing pictures of) that I (slightly) moded the blade and philips on - I just love the build quality.

First: Skeletool, long since sold as it wasn't being used
Latest: Charge AL also now sold (as I already had a Charge TTi)
Favourite: I was going to say Surge, or Rebar, or TTi, or Crunch...  But judging by how often I carry it, I think my favourite must be my Style CS.  It's the perfect accompaniment to a good pocket knife.

Great topic idea, Outback!

My first LM was a used JPST. Last LM I bought was a Signal. Favorite is a 2005 stock configuration Wave. Close second is a ReWave(rebar w/ scissors, wave pliers, and bit changer) from Breezy I use in my camp bag.  :)

I own the Leatherman Wave and I really like it, it is my first and last.  I would like to get the Juice as well.

What is the difference between the Juice SX and C2?

First - Wave bought New '97 Unused Still boxed

Last - Tread Used - not impressed

Favourite - Genus - Such a radical design and beautifully built

I don't claim to know it all, but what I do know is right.

First was a Micra

Last was a PST in need of some serious attention.

Favorite is...  a tossup between Micra, Rebar, and Wave. Really depends on application.

First, PST II, which really got me into multitools.

Most recent, an OG Wave that should be here Friday.

Favorite--still the RadioShack Squirt E4. It was the first Leatherman I ever knew about, and I found them at Radio Shack when I was 11?, and with my allowance couldn't afford it. The on-board tools are better than anything else in the Squirt line. And maybe the Crunch too, that fits locking pliers into a pocket-friendly size, unlike the Schrade Vise Grip-based tools and the Kershaw A100, all around the size of a Petersen Vise Grip 6LN.

First was the PST somewhere around 1987 or so.
Last was a Juice last year from the esteemed shop up in this forums corner.

Favorite one would be the Micra I think. Although after the air travel craziness that has become less handy.
