I wished I could join but sadly :'( these were being retired when I first started collecting and weren't very high on my list at the time :facepalm: As soon as they were retired the prices started going up and they became very rare very quick :oops: One day perhaps I will find one reasonable priced an get it though :D

The one you have is very nice and I love that sheath :drool:

I got mine well after they retired, brand new, for about USD$60-70.

I'm not really into camo myself but is a great sheath; I wish that style was available for other Leathermans.

I have one also. Found it a couple of years ago brand new in a shop.
That awl is a real weapon. Easy to get bit by if your not careful.

I got very lucky last year. Got them both for a very fair price. I almost gave up looking for them.

You guys who have these are lucky. Good collection, or users!

I like all these Leatherman "one-offs" they made. Like these pruning shears
, crunch, flair etc. I would have liked to get one of these for my father who is a landscaper.

Nice seeing these in members collection/hands. How much was original retail for these? I'm assuming that's why they are now oop.

Looks wise I like vista better only because it's camo sheath. I don't use them so cannot comment which one is more useful or better. I got them for the collection. I believe the Hybrid (yellow, grafting knife, bark lifter, sprinkler head adjuster, weed remover) was meant for gardening and Vista (green, awl, choke tube wrench, combo blade) was meant for hunting.

Thanks  :cheers:  By the looks the Genus is a better tool for Gardening than the Hybrid. Stronger for sure.  But it's very un-leatherman like. They don't fold. That's another reason to have one in your collection. I actually contacted a dealer in South Africa who seem to have one but that did not work out. Finally one showed up in ebay and was able to get a Genus. At first I thought it was the ugliest LM. I have grown to like it now. Hope you find one too.

The suggested retail prices was $75. I am pretty sure they would have sold it for much cheaper in the market.

Ah, great you have one.  :cheers: Eventhough it doesn´t fold it seems to have a certain technical heavy duty look that I like about it. It looks like there is no plastic or rubber involved in the Genus ?
Strange enough  I have a spare prunerblade for the Genus. just lacking the actual tool. :facepalm:

I am still hoping one day I'll be at the fleamarket and see one selling for $1.  We can dream right?

Not impossible, but definitely implausible.
