What is the Collectors Edition PST Worth?
« on: May 13, 2019, 04:12:12 PM »
I have an opportunity to buy a NIB Collectors Edition PST for what seems like a very cheap price based on what Leatherman is asking on their site. What are these actually going for in the real world?

You don't see many of them in the wild right now, so if you think it is a good price then you better get it ;) :cheers:

Oh and pics when you do :pok: :D

I don't think we know yet, since none have popped up on eBay. Though, if it were me, I'd pay up to $150 just because that is what the non-collector's edition goes for.
In a few years, they'll be worth about what LM is selling them for, and in 10 years they'll probably be worth $400-$500. IMO of course.

Which edition are we talking about, the one in the wooden crate or the one in the black box ?

I can't remember the names they had for the two different versions ...  :-[

Yeah, my issue is that I'm not a collector really, so this really only has value to me in the sense of resale--the place I can get the "good deal" is local retail stock. So I'm really looking for "what can I get on eBay?", and "what could I get for it giving someone on MTO a good deal"?

I'll go check it out tonight again. Now that I think about it, it was the small box, not the wood one. I'm guessing that all of the $275 ones were the full box and everything. I didn't realize there was more than one release.

The "small box" ones are still very nice ...  :pok:

:iagree:
That is the version I bought for the collection, since it was right at my MT spending limit.  :like:

An extra $125 for a wood box that I'd have to find a place to store, and a number etched in the handles was too much to stomach(and didn't end up on the grail list).

They started at 299,95€ ($337), over here, then they sold them at -30% discount, and the waiting game began ...  Then they went for -50% discount and still the store stock didn't change, so I waited a bit longer until ... YES, -75%  :woohoo:.

I ended up paying 74,99€ ($84) a piece and that put a huge smile on my face  :D.

That is a GREAT deal. :like:

I paid a bit more for mine, but still WAY lower than introductory MSRP. :)

If I thought I'd ever carry a PST, I would have bought an extra. But, I'm not a PST carrying guy. :ahhh

Thanks mate  :salute:.

Pics were taken inside with bad lighting and using my smartphone ... but they did turn out quite well after all  ;).

I do love this PST, and knowing what I do now I would've probably bought one at full retail as well, but than I would only have one, while now I own three for less money than one at full retail would've cost me ...  :D

The Limited PSTs are fantastic, aren't they, T-G?  :dd:

Yes, they are  :iagree:.

And, let's not forget ... first Leatherman tool in years to have "U.S.A. Leatherman" back on the pliers, even before the Free tools  :like:.

I only opened one, the other two remain sealed in the original plastic (though sometimes I just want to unpack them as well ... :ahhh).

Indeed. Great to have seen LM put LM USA on the pivot. :)
