My Style family.

I'd always considered Style a nail breaker but when I spotted a blue one on Amazon for £7 I couldn't resist the chance.  I addressed the deployment issues, cleared the file nail-nick of grit,  enhanced the blade nail-nick (large but still smaller than Dime) and ground a finger relief for scissors access.  I wonder why LM retired the tool and speculate if deployment issues was a factor but the improvements transform the usability.  Compared with the Classic SD LM got the lanyard ring at the right end.

The Style PS/CSs all have a role as SAK partners.  The 1/2 PS or CS partners Mechanic and the PS scissorless SAKS.  Great pairings.

How durable / capable are the scissors on the CS model?

Are there any tools opposite the blade and file? That is on the other side of the handle?

On the later model CS there is quite a bit of snap-back in the springs, which is a good thing. The scissors themselves are great for fingernails up to cutting cardboard. Even clam packaging in some cases :salute:

So this may be a dumb question but what are the little holes on the blades for?

Style. 8)

Sorry, but they're purely decorative. :)

Are you sure about this? Aren't they used for wire stripping?...

Oh, I'm still a member, although I don't carry my PS anymore. Still working on the will to write to Leatherman and ask what they can do to solve this that doesn't involve spending more money in postage than it cost me to buy it...

 :rant: :rant:

If you have T6 drivers give me your address.  :tu:

Thanks for the offer, Z. I'll try Leatherman first (after all, it's their responsability). Depending on their answer, I'll decide what to make of it.

 :cheers: :salute:

Well you know where to find me.  :D

Well, wrote to Leatherman USA. The closest representative they have is in Spain. Sent them the Style on September 25th, got it back today.
 :mail: :tu:

Looks more like a new tool than a repaired one. Maybe it's easier to them to replace the tool than have all the trouble to replace the scissors.
 :think:

Back to EDC it goes.

The postman dropped me off a lovely new PS recently, a replacement for the one that sadly decided to make a bid for freedom and has not been seen since...

I love these tools - the perfect compliment to a small folder like my Spyderco Urban or Vic Cadet to add the scissors and pliers that those miss. Not a particularly heavy duty tool admittedly, but very useful given the tiny space they take up in my pocket.

I have over half a dozen style PS/CS tools...with more that I want.
I have a PS and CS in every color....EXCEPT GREEN! I want it, I need it!

Lately Ive been carrying a red PS to school (I am a high school history teacher), its TSA approved, cant get in trouble for having a blade etc, though its a suburban/rural area, I doubt anyone would honestly say anything about the 1" blade on the style.
But I love carrying it because of the aforementioned bladeless-ness, but also its small size takes up so little space in my pocket, it doesnt dig into thigh as I move around (as a teacher you squat down...A LOT!).

Great tool.
If I could get an Alox Vic that was bladeless I'd try that, but Im a Leatherman man through and through.

Im hoping to acquire one soon. I want one, but not enough to pay 25+ for it on ebay
I want all colors, just never see them for sale

I have a NIP green CS (sorry, not for sale) in my 'backups'. Luckily, I have not had to use them as my current red CS is holding up just fine.

In fact, I just put a razor sharp keen edge on its blade. I use absolutely everything on this tool including the tweezers. I carry a set of nail clippers but rely on the CS's file to smooth things out :tu:

This is definitely my most used/carried Leatherman and I was very interested in the PS until I learned of all the scissor breakage issues.

Style PS :tu:

I must be living in a cave or something, I just discovered these! 2 things I like about it already are TSA compliant, and pairs nicely with a 2-3 layer SAK. All good so far, can't find any downside to it, except I do feel it pulling me ferociously toward the Dark Side. :ahhh

Really likning My CS as a compliment to My Skeletool. They are a great pairing without any overlap.

Can I join the Style club now.

I was in Kansas City & went to my favorite sporting goods store just because & to get a Skeletool. Talked to the salesman about reels & passed along some free information he needed. Then we walked over to the knives and multi-tools to get a Skeletool. Instead of giving me one just a Skeletool that was up front he walked to the back room and came back with a Skeletool, Style CS combo for the same price.

I acted all happy while thinking what the smurf am I going to do with that. So anyway I carried it in my watch pocket for a week, kind of as conversation piece. Then yesterday I had 4 rod holders to open up. They are packaged so you have to cut the plastic wrapping from around every inch of the rod holder. Started to use my Fallkniven PC but it is to big for that job. So I pulled out the little Style & it was the perfect tool for the job.

It's now found a permanent home in my watch pocket.

I had never even thought of buying a Style. I actually got it as a thank u gift from an eBay seller. I had bought a Skeletool CX from him and when it arrived, it was missing the second double ended bit that rides in the handle.

I emailed him about it, just to see if maybe it fell out somewhere. I wasn't too concerned about it. He said he would send me one.

A few weeks went by and I wasn't even thinking about it anymore. Then a package showed up. He had sent the bit, PLUS this Style CS AND a Gerber MP600 Scout as an apology for the lost bit!!!

Terrific customer service!!!

So, now the Style CS rides on my keychain...

Hi guys. How do you guys like the style ps pliers? Well... Not long before i found my climber a bit too big to pair up with my Rebar and thus I've got a Ps4 and tried to keychain it.

The little pliers of the Ps4 is excellent but the scissors is definitely a joke. :facepalm: It's sloppy, wobbly and have large blade play.  :oops: It cuts paper and cardboards well but not in soft and precise material like ribbon or double side tape which i need to cut all the time. I eventually give it up and got a Rambler. The scissors is a lot more precise and useful to me but i kind of miss a pair of mini pliers and it is also a bit sad that the flathead on the Rambler is a bit too big to fit in my glasses screws.(the smaller f/p head on ps4 does well on it). I then tried to pair the rambler with the ps4 and found the whole thing too redundant.

I am thinking of getting a style ps to pair up with the rambler. I know the reputation for its scissors is not good as well but what i need is the pliers. Is it as good as the one on ps4? Also, is the f/p head on style ps the same size as the smaller one on ps4? I won't use the style ps scissors anyway so i don't care.

Hello!
When did the blade change on the Style CS?
I noticed that the older blades had two small "holes", while newer ones don't have them, plus the nail nick is in a different position.
Does anyone know when this happened?

I've got 18 Style PS :multi:
On the one I carry I've replaced the scissors with the blade from a Style CS. It's a proper mini skeletool now and I carry it with my customised Crunch.
