Just picked up my Rebar today,looked in the LM production time line,and it shows 2012,my question is that mine has 801 in both handles,that makes no sense to me,does anybody else have production dates in there's??

That actually may be B01.  Let me check mine....yup, B01 on the inside of the lock tab.  Is that what you're talking about?  Mine has no date, which I believe I've read others stating this as well.
Your right,with my old eye's I had to get a magnifying glass out to see B01,still don't know what it means,but as long as I get my 25 yr warranty I'm happy,that will be when I'm 95!!! :salute:

Yeah I don't know what it means either really.  It could be a number representing the part or something like that perhaps.  Enjoy your Rebar, it's a nice multitool and one of my favorites :tu:

I have a Micra, and think it is awesome (for what it is, no surge replacement   ::)  )  I wanted a Rebar, but they run $50-60 online, so when I saw one that was $39.99, I was all over it, and then to top it off it comes with a Micra.   :ahhh

Now I can put a Micra in my altoids tin survival kit!

Yeah the Micra is a good little tool.  I paid $50 for my Rebar, but I got it when they first came out about a year ago.  Now I see them on Amazon in the mid $30's range at times.  Spending $40 and getting an originally $50 tool plus a bonus $20 tool is a sweet deal.  Hope you enjoy the Rebar:))

I finally managed to kill my Wave:

Why, Jothra? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

It took five years of truly monstrous abuse to do that. That Wave has done things no pocket tool should ever have to do. But then, that's the point, isn't it? The Wave shouldn't have to do it, but succeeded anyway. Points for Leatherman!

So while I plan to warranty it anyway, because the worst that could possibly happen is they say no, I decided this was a good chance to try another tool. I wanted something no bigger than the Wave (no Surge. It's a brick with pliers in!) I already have a Skeletool, but I wanted a tool with full pliers that I can butterfly open, and the Skeletool has become a dedicated Bike Bag tool anyway. I also have a Kick (my first Leatherman), but I wanted something with no plastic parts and with snappier, lockable tools.

I considered some flavour of Charge, and was just about ready to grab a Charge AL. But then I saw a Rebar.

It stared into my eyes. I stared into its eyes. I took it home.


Rebar with Kick and Skeletool.

I've loosened the pivots a tiny bit, and now it's perfect. I don't miss those dinky Wave scissors (and have some on my SAK anyway), and with an adapter for the Phillips driver, I can use any screwdriver bit I want. We'll see how the pliers do with actually tying rebar this summer, but I think I've found my new EDC bag tool.

That is some impressive damage you did to your Wave there, Jothra :o  What made it break like that?

The final straw was bending a piece of metal into an adapter to move a brake on an odd-wheeled Frankenbike. I was clamping pretty hard, and the sound of the tool snapping was spectacular. I've used this tool for five years of commercial construction, including who knows how many steel mats for sidewalks and concrete aprons. Basically, anytime there weren't any easily-accessible pliers around for a job, the Leatherman came out. When you're with a hands-on general contractor, that's really, really often.

I hope the warranty repair goes well.

 SOO me, even my co-worker  thought it fit me perfectly

Oh no Jothra! I think the rebar pliers will work well for your job. And there is always the possibility of a rewave? Of course then warranty would be voided.

And by the way I find the little jokes you throw into your posts very amusing :D

Thank you!

Anyway, I think you're right—the Rebar looks very promising. I probably won't bother modding, since all the features I loved in the Wave have made it into a more compact package with beefier pliers (except for the bit driver, though there's an adapter for that).

Ok, now that I have received my rebar, I love it.  What I did find surprising was just how much awesomeness they squeezed into essentially the same footprint a my kick, which had a super small tool assortment.  The rebar is only 1.5 oz heavier than the kick.   I will try to get some side by side shots to point this out in picture form later

I know, that's one of the best things about it, that they managed to make it so robust while still being a slim, sleek, lightweight package :tu:

I also got a ST300, on the Rebar the wire cutters touch and make it a little hard to close and then open the pliers (slightly)  on the ST it wil cut paper, but they do not meet.  Think I should loosen the wire cutters slightly on my Rebar?

Maybe you should loosen them?  I'm not sure what exactly would happen if you loosen them as I've never dabbled in that with mine.  Mine opens/closes smoothly and the cutters don't touch in an interfering way.  They also cut paper.  I love the Rebar pliers, and the Rebar in general :tu:

Thanks I will loosen them just a touch.  The one thing I did notice about the Rebar is that the slight buldge out the handles make in the closed position.  The ST300 does not do this

Cool, let us know how that works out for you.  Oh do you mean that section that sticks out at the bottom of the sloped area?  I thought that was odd myself, but it may have something to do with the rolled edges to the handles so that they don't hurt when using the pliers. :think:  It may be due to the fact that they were trying to make it slim and that area and along the edges had to stick out to allow room for the rolled edges?  Not sure, but I imagine the ST300 must have the rolled edges too, unless that's not the case.

First,
loosened the cutters about 1/100th of a turn each, and they do not touch, but will cut paper.   :D

Second
I bought a ST300 at the same time as my Rebar, and it it flat, (no bump) but it does have the rolled edges.  The Rebar laying closed on a table can rock side to side, like a messed up table, the ST300, has no movement at all.

Not a big deal, I just thought my Rebar was damaged, until I saw other pix of the Rebar, and noticed the hump on them. 

I am much happier with the Rebar than I expected to be.  the file may not be diamond (One reason I love my Surge!)  but it is super aggressive!

I also noticed that the Rebar pliers open a little wider than the ST300  :rofl:

Yeah, that bump did bug me, and sometimes does when I wish it would lay flat on a surface, but it really makes no difference in the end.  I do also wish it had a diamond file (the biggest strike against it for me), but its overall awesomeness makes up for that :tu:

Not sure if I posted this already, but anyway, I got one too, and I love it :) Really impressed with the cutters, I cut some steel cable with it (the kind that's in the rim of the outer tires of some old wrecked bikes I disassembles) and they went through like through butter :)

All Leatherman's are made in the USA (Portland, Oregon) Though I believe some parts, or the steel or something, could come from somewhere else, if I'm right.

They are assembled in the US and most parts are made in the US, I think pliers (Mexico) and files (Austria/Switzerland/ not sure exactly ) are made outside of the US. Cause of this ruling by a California court: http://www.leatherman.com/about/release?id=20
 if even a screw is made outside of the US, it can't say made in the US. ::)

A year ago I bought myself a Rebar, but it broke down on me after 2 days or so, they gave me a new one in the store but this one also had some problems, so I bought myself a Wave and vowed never to buy a Rebar again (more info here).

Until yesterday ...  ::)




So I guess I'm back in the club  8).

P.S. Any of you guys ever placed the Rebar in that "new" al black Leather Wave sheath, I would like to know how it fits in that one (if it's not to loose), because I would like a Leather sheath for my Rebar with a pocket on the side for my MAG-lite Solitaire LED.  Maybe someone who has pics of a Rebar in the Leather Wave sheath, or else, just your thoughts on it.
