Nomad's Swap'n'Go
« on: December 09, 2007, 09:35:51 PM »
I mentioned in another thread I had a Mini up for grabs, and I've had two offers already!

I'll put some pictures of it up this afternoon for the two people in question to eyeball.

Who knew this ugly, featureless midget would be a hot item? I'm guessing you want it to fill out a collection, than for actual use.

(If anyone wants to PM me an etiquette lesson for trades, That'd be neato.)

AustraliaPost website suggests I can Airmail a 500g parcel international to UK or US for $20, (less for Sea Mail if you're not in a hurry) so that shouldn't be an issue.

In time to go with the new Review, some Mini-Tool pics

If I don't get rid of it I'm considering hacking it up to use the Knife and Bottle opener as a single-hinge mini-folder  :D

Sorry for the poor lighting - It's getting dark out, but the flash makes nasty flares.

I take it none of those two offers panned out?

If no one else goes for it, please let me know.  Also, it may help interest folks if you mention what kinds of things you may be interested in.

Huh? Oh, no, the pics were for those guys - I'll try to take some better ones in the light showing the actual condition of the tools.

As stated originally in my off topic post (I think it was a topic about pictures  :-\ ) I'm after Saks - Ideally two-layer. - Money is not much of an issue for me, so anything I can get off the shelf at the local Knifemart isn't of much interest - Anything unique, collectable, out of production, etc would be of interest however.

(I'm also after a PST II, but you'd have to be on the gear to trade that for a Mini)

Eventually I'll go to the Vic website to look up the names of those on the table :P

(I'm also trying to find another Mini, little buggers are hard to track down, but I don't want to leave anyone disappointed)

In any case-  Handle stamps are ??02, comes with sheath, box, pamphlet.

(I also have a Sideclip, if anyone is into slothead screwdrivers - for that matter, everything I own is open to trade for the right offer, but international post is more expensive than the item itself in most cases!)

This may be an obvious question to someone but what brand is this mini. I can't tell from the picture.

Looks like a cool idea.

Typing while trying not to throw up is interesting.

Mmm, bad Ham.

How is it a good idea? It has a nail file and a 1" blade. It's about as useful as a Vic Classic and four times as large, and four times as expensive.

I'm having trouble tracking down another one - They retail for $75 - $100 here.
I've tried a few pawn shops (lots of fakey SAKs and a few of the Blast/Fuse/Kick line have been handed in)

Not at all, the Mini Tool was another early LM that has is a worlds smallest full size plier deal. It has not many tools but like extensions that make it a full size tool!

Cute and Useless.


Still, less upkeep than a girlfriend.

Nomad, I know the value of this item is probably not the same as the mini was originally but as far as uniqueness I don't know if you have these down under.

Anyway, in the sprit of the trade forum I would offer up as a trade the SeberTool M2 keychain tool by SeberTech. I carry one and think it is a pretty cool little item.

If you aren't interested, no harm done.

I guess my trade offer is DECLINED?

Thread was not only hard to follow it kind of petered out

Perhaps an email to Nomad might be the easiest way to sort it out?

or a PM, or just hang around and wait until he remembers to check the thread again.

I used the Mini in a swap for a Leather Jacket (which, by the way, is really very stylish)

2330, fireworks just started. Boom Boom.

Does anyone know of Australia based collectors groups for Knives and Tools?
