Great topic  :tu:.

- My first Leatherman was an original Supertool (bought in '94, date code "1094").

- My latest Leatherman was a Signal (I just bought two "25th Anniversary" Waves, but they'll only be here tomorrow, if all goes well, so they don't really count yet in my opinion)

- My favorite ... that's a tough one  :think:.  I would say my orignal Supertool, since that one made the biggest impression on me, but since I don't carry it anymore I feel like I need to pick another one.  I can't pick just one, so I'm going to say, my Rebar/ST300, and my Wave/new Surge (I like both the Rebar and the Wave tool setup, and the ST300 and the Surge are just the same, but in size Large, so it depends on where I'm going if I'm going to carry the Medium or Large version of these tools).

Even though I have quite a few leathermans, my answer to this is quite funny and very ironic......

First: PST
Last: PST
Fav:  PST

My first Leatherman was an early PST when the knife blade looked like an after-thought. I bought it new before the Mini Tool came out.

I have a Mini Tool, Skeletool, an original Wave, an original Surge, a Super Tool 200, 2 new Waves, and multiples of each of the Rebar,  Super Tool 300, new Surge, and Charge TTI.

The last Leatherman  I bought was one of the Super Tool 300's.

My favorite Leatherman is the Super Tool 300. :cheers:

Hi
First was a Micra bought in the land of the Swiss in 1997. I was on my first visit there and thought I must get a SAK. In the shop there was a display cabinet with a  sea of red and 1 small silver item .
The sales guy showed it to me and that was end of that and the start of an addiction.
Favourite is still my '98 Wave .
Latest is the Raptor - just to keep the collection on track and up to date.

TTFN :cheers:

Have a several  Leathermans but clearly not enough.  Looking to add to the collection whenever She who must be obeyed is not paying attention.

This is a fun game.

My first Leatherman was a Pulse. I really liked it and I've carried some LM or another pretty much everyday since then. I lost it after a couple years or so, but it was too late I was and am addicted.

My latest acquisition is a pink (my favorite colour) Micra my son got me for Chirstmas.

My favorite? I simply cannot pick just one! I have to say the Micra because it has by far the most pocket time and use, plus my new one is pink and my son gave it to me, so that's that. But I am most proud of my Flair. Man, that thing is sexy! It took a while to find a good one but I got one NIB! (thanks CeHo!) Then, I really felt the Pulse was pretty perfect. I mean there was no fat on that tool, steel And diamond files, scissors, enough pliers and drivers to get it done with no fluff. I'll also say, some people bemoan the rocker-locks but I don't remember having any trouble after the first little while and I highly enjoyed the fiddle factor. That being said, it has been almost  2 decades since I have used one. I got the next one fairly quickly after the Pulse was lost and while the tool selection was different I didn't notice much of an operational difference. Cut to years later, I get my greasy mitts on an ST300. This thing is built like a tank (comparatively). I always noticed how much the pliers flexed on other tools causing slippage and rounding occasionally, well this was no problem with the ST300! I love this thing so much I now have 3 (same with the Micra)! If could only have one Leatherman (gasp!) it might very well be this tool. But I am a free man and I can have as many as I want, so I pick these 4 as my favorite and there's not a smurfing thing you can do about it. Cheers!

Life is hard. If it wasn't, everyone would do it.

First - LM Kick
Latest - Just ordered a LM Surge in BO
Favourite - Hard to say....I loved my Kick, because it just works due to its simplicity, my Charge TTi served my extremely well too, but I hate how it pinched my hand every time I used the pliers. I have been EDC'ing my Custom Rebar for the last 6 month, but I hate how the pliers get stiff every time I squeeze hard on something, so maybe the Surge will be the next contender for the "Favourite" ...only time will tell.  :)

Kind regards,

MMR

First - Sidekick
Last - PST
Favorite - Charge

Favorite might as well be a toss up, I've been well served by a bunch of mine. Still would love to track down a Blast, feel it could challenge for the top spot given how much I like the feel of my Fuse.

I'm a total legend..... in my own mind- Herley

Surge md.1 was my first. Since last year i started collecting, refurbishing, selling them, and again.
My favorite is the Flair, i find it cool.
Micra and Squirt shared and share a long time on my key ring.
Tread is one nasty piece of manjewelry that i wear proud as a peacock.
If i have to chose a favorite, than the Surge has to be the One for me altough my custom Charge fits my needs

I only have one Leatherman in the stable at-the-moment; the Wave Plus.  But I'd like to add a 'black-out' model too.  Possibly a Surge.   It'll give me an excuse, to buy another kydex sheath.

First: Original Leatherman Wave (1999)
Last: Wave +
Favorite: still the original wave, its so compact for what it can do. I wish they made a wave lite to go with the Wave +...so you had Original, Wave +, and Surge as size choices.

Cheers,
