I'm guessing current asking prices have been the main obstacle here - some of those are now going for eye-wateringly-high prices   :'(

Yep.  Most of these are now well over $100 and more often offered in excess of $200. Since my obsession is also fun, I like to keep it that way by buying the obtainable at fun affordable prices.

Wenger SGT Shortix Plus

Never even seen one. This is the knife that would complete my Wenger collection (Bernina, Laser, Minator, STGW90). I would not say no to an SGT Fix-It either, but Shortix is the one I really want.

For years, it was the Barnett Plier Knife. I finally got one with a broken blade (and even those tend to be pricey) for $20 from NKLamerus here.

For me, it's the first gen, Seki-made SOG MicroToolclip. I found one for under $20 with quite a bit of wear and tear (but a like-new serrated blade, while short, make quick work of all rope), then one day, it came unclipped from my pocket, and disappeared. Never found another for that price.

When you have a relatively low price limit (compared with regular selling prices) on an uncommon MT your chances of finding one are reduced significantly  :(

I second Greg's statement.  I limit my search to those tools I can find and purchase at prices I can afford. I've watched literally hundreds of tools sold at auction at prices I can't afford or won't pay.

In the past I have sometimes been one of those "enthusiastic" bidders prepared to bid quite high for a tool I really wanted, and "paid the price" (literally)  ::)

These days I either have most of the tools I want, or I am not prepared to pay the high price needed to secure them (I'm looking at you, original Cabela's catalogue v1 PST with hollow knurled screws and etched main blade !  )    :facepalm:

Having 10 or a dozen Leathermans, a similar number of Victorinox Swiss Army Knives, 5 Buck knives, two Byrd knives and two Spydercos,  I really have more than I need. I bet I'm not the only one around here.

And like many of us, I'm checking Craigslist, the bay, flea markets for lucky shot deals.

However, since last summer, when I first held a Spyderco Atlantic Salt, I have wanted one. The impediment to garnering one is that the retail cost is a wee higher than I prefer to pay for a knife, and with Amazon, you aren't sure if you are getting the shackle key version or not. But really, I could have bought three by now, except, while saving towards one, I keep finding other things that strike me as interesting (recent acquisitions 1978 Buck 110, '78 Western 062, the 1992 Buck Vanguard ) and I decide the Atlantic Salt can wait a bit.

So really, I don't have the one I want because I myself change me own game plan when something else tantalizing presents itself.

First Leatherman I ever bought was a PSTII.  He'll of a multi tool while still maintaining slim line elegance of simplicity.

I had a Crunch and while it was a good tool, prob not worth the price premium it garners..

I knew my wife was a keeper when she transitioned from calling it a knife thingy to a multi-tool.

Depends if you actually need locking pliers.  If you do, then a Crunch is a very handy MT.  But the price of used ones does seem to have crept up quite a bit over the last few years.

That is a rather low price ceiling for a Crunch, but patience being the virtue that it is, you will probably be rewarded, just be prepared to wait.  I've purchased a couple of Waves from eBay under $30.  Somebody on this forum purchased a Kershaw A100 for $15 a while back.  Hang in there

Most popular MTs that I've seen sold cheaply is because either the seller put a low B-I-N price on it, or the description is vague/mispelt. 

But good luck with your search   :tu:
