It looks like an "L" , the arms of which are plyer arms, the corner of which is plyer head. In a circle.

Yes, I do "get it" but no, I don't like it. Sure, it's simple, but sometimes a logo can be too simple.

I'm not saying this just because I like the older stuff. I actually don't like the logo that's on my original Super Tool ballistic nylon sheath as much as the upright, open, yellow PST in a circle...the one embossed in every Leatherman Rebar leather sheath - that one I like. Then again...that one looks kind if like a W...so what do I know.

Sometimes companies don't even use these trademarks they apply for. They sometimes do it to block other companies from using something that's too similar or that could be used in a similar way.

Sort of like the way The North Face went after that father and son team that started an out door sportswear company called The South Butt?

Let's hope this simple ugly thing is for some reason like that

I bet in a year you will all be used to the logo and won't give it a second thought.  :pok:
If we look at the old logos we probably wouldn't have liked them when they first came out.

It's like music - a lot of people don't like new music but the radio stations force it upon you enough that it becomes familiar and you end up liking it (whether you wanted to or not).

One minute on Google, and one minute in MS Paint.
Here's a better logo.

Looking at the Free P3, the logo isn't bothering me much anymore, as I really want that smurfing tool! :multi:

That's weird, it links to the Belgian one, but it opens the Dutch one. Probably because I'm logged in. The Dutch one still has the old logo.

Not great but better with the word Leatherman beside it ::) I wouldn't have a clue what it was by itself though if not for MTO :D

I just don’t understand why they feel that the logo needs to change  :dunno:
And does this mean the prices are going up as they have to change their tooling :think:

I love it... the old one was too delicate, this is simple and works for me.

It's certainly lacking as a stand alone logo.
