Nice one powernoodle !
I only replaced the XE6 with the Surge because my site banned slip joint / non locking blades for safety reasons. I should put the XE6 in my car glove box or bike tank bag for a just in case option rather than whatever drawer it is currently sitting in.

Normally one sees places banning locking blades, and most laws and prohibitions are strict with locks on edged tools. A really weird circumstance that in your job
That's the bizarre thing about bans on locking blades - From a safety perspective a locking blade is much safer than a slippy!!Think about this - Which would you prefer to give to a child to execute a simple task? - A slip joint or a locking/fixed blade?This actually happened to me:My very young son (maybe he was 6 or 7) wanted to borrow a knife to do something or other - I had a Wenger S16 in my pocket - So I lent it to him - Would not have done so if it did not have the security lock (not at that age!).
So will the discontinued models go on clearance soon? I remember when the e33 series and the gardening tools went on sale, but a few years after being discontinued.
I remember first seeing the Juice models at the local Canadian Tire. This was back in the early 2000's. What drew me to them was the colourful packaging. It stood out from the rest of Leatherman's packaging at the time. This was before I started collecting Leatherman. Mind you, Canadian Tire only had them on their sales floor for a few years at most. Come 2004, the line was replaced with the Kick, Fuse, and Blast. By the time I started collecting them, I could not find them any longer locally.

Amici,When it comes to the Juice line, it's the originals that are simply the best, compared to those later abortions that LM thrust upon us masquerading as the 'improved" Juice line.
