What's next?
on: October 03, 2006, 02:13:05 AM
I am atill waiting for a LM Crunch to arrive and I think I am pretty well caught up on my latest round of ordering.

I think my next purchase is going to be either a Charge but I am not 100% certain which one yet.  I also have my eye on another SwissTool X, and one of Leathermans new pruners since it seems no one has one of these yet, and it might be a good idea to try and get a review posted.

Other than that I think I'll just grab anything that catches my eye in the near future, which happens often enough.  I hate buying something from a store because they are usually way too much more expensive than internet prices, and I like to support our dealers, but there is definately something about a multitool that jumps off the shelf, grabs you and begs you to take it home....

Well, I guess I have egg on my face!  I managed to snag a Leatherman Mini Tool instead of the expected Charge, so I guess that I was wrong!  I have been looking for one of these on and off for a while now and just happened upon this little critter with about 30 minutes left on the auction.  Before I knew it I had accidentally won it!

The mini tool and a classic SAK would be a great combo that would be able to carry out most jobs, hummmmmm

Def, where did you get the mini tool from??

One of the usual suspects...  eBay...  and worse, I just bid on a Kick too from the same seller.  I hope he hasn't shipped it already...

Be sure to try out the can opener on your Mini Tool when it arrives. It is a truly remarkable feature. You'll wonder how you ever got by without it.  ::)

Let's just say that the Mini Tool can opener is every bit as useful as the medium screwdriver is on your SideClip.

I dunno, I think the medium screwdriver on my Sideclip makes a great doorstop!

I've been saving up my pennies to place an order with Felinevet. I can't tell you what it is though, because I think Tim only has one left.  ;D

Aw... c'mon, tell us.  We promise to try not to buy it before you.  (crosses fingers)

How are these tools as far as being practical?  Is it EDC Material?  Does it handle big jobs?

Okay, I'll tell..........as soon as it arrives.   ;D

Navajero316, are you asking about the Leatherman Mini-Tool? It uses the same size plier jaws as the PST. Even though the handles fold, they still seem plenty strong enough. As a plier implement, it will handle most jobs you would use any other multi tool for.

But where it comes up short is in its blade selection. It only has a stubby knife, and a stubby file. (Because of the way it folds, there is no room for anything else.) I think Ging has the right idea; If you carry a Mini-Tool for the pliers, carry along a good SAK for the blade selection.

Folded up, the Mini-Tool really makes for a compact package.

I can't wait to get it.  Even if it isn't the most versatile tool on the market, it is a valuable addition to the collection and a great example in the multitool evolution.
