Ain't she a doozy!  :like:

No experience with scissors in a Paratool, but my experience with SOG scissors in their newer tools has been....disappointing....to say the least.
Noted and thanks. I wonder how well gerber scissors would fit......

The second MT I bought (first was a PST).  The wood saw blade was sold separately at the time.  I carried this for years at work and it's help up well.  I liked that I could take it apart easily, and that it had more options than the PST.  There's more fiddling around required to get blades out, but overall I liked it and it got the jobs done.  It still rides in one of my packs.

 I recently acquired a Paratool that had been sitting in a kitchen drawer for decades. It was pretty funky and just getting the tools to move was some work. The manual uploaded to multitool.org keyed me into how to take the tools apart. After some oil, WD40, soap, and a tooth brush, though, it’s in much nicer shape!  I need to finagle with the tool setup a bit still. It’s a neat little tool.

Soon to be a member of this club.
I bought a used Paratool from eBay...needs a good cleaning, but I wanted to see one in person.   If I like it, I hope the rabbit hole isn't too deep.

You're going to like it!  I'm a big SOG fan.  If I can scare up a Powerlock I'm going to do a challenge sometime next Spring  :ahhh

Now that you mentioned it, maybe a Paratool would be fun  :D

My first multi-tool was a Paratool. I've been hooked ever since. When I abused it to death my dad (who bought it for me as a birthday present) sent it back to them and they replaced it with this one. When he died, I retired it and bought a Powerlock.

Thanks. I'm a hack as a leather worker, but can make stuff work.

I'm eventually going to make one for my ARC because I just prefer leather over nylon.

The ParaTool was a SOG fixture, only being discontinued sometime after 2016. (с)
