  • Apparently it is possible to have too many tools;)

More multitools are obtainable than not, but i guess i'd like to FIND a valid 1983 pst... One of the very first. I'd want to discover it, rather than purchase one already attributed and overpriced.

It's always gratifying to find a bargain  :D

Whilst I do not have any multitool/knife that I feel I really need/want but cannot find (There are several that I would like to get if I accidentally saw them for sale, but I will not lose any sleep over it if I do not do so) there are certain multitools/knives that I would like to get for a reasonable price, rather than the prices that are usual for them.
An example of that is the LM flair, which I like as a tool and have a few but I do not want to pay the stupid prices they are selling for on eBay nowadays.

I did however manage to get a week ago one knife, that is widely available but I was not willing to pay the actual price they are selling it for (both new and used), for the right price for me (used).  So, assuming it is in good condition, I am happy about that.

More when it arrives.

My holy grail was a camo charge tti w/ bo tools.  I've slowly worked my way up.  First Holt grail was a wave.  Then a charge. Then a bo charge.  Now finally the stars aligned and this is MINE.  I'm stoked.

Does any one know exactly what camo charge this is?

My holy grail would be Victorinox bringing back the old cross for Alox models, and finally making a 93mm scissor backspring.

For some reason I got a Elmyra Duff image in my head. :P

Lovely!  :D

My Holy Grail is my Victorinox Champion which I own 30 years now.



Since the original red scales broke some years ago, I switched them to black Plus scales. And I added a mini screwdriver which I found on a street during a visit in Switzerland about 20 years ago.

One of mine was a NIB Vic Director, and I got one earlier this year.  I realize they would have to charge a bit more for them, but it is a crime they stopped making those engine-turned SS scales.  Other than that, nothing else springs to mind ATM.

Isn't it a Wenger Director?

The knife I'm referring to is a Victorinox Director:

While it was not the subject of my post, you are correct insofar as Wenger also made a Director:

this is so hard to answer as i don't know what one or 2 items fit into this category for me at this point in time.  i have some desperate wants but once i get them im quickly moving on to the next.  right now the coolest thing i have is a busted up Japanese Riveted PST.  even tho its pretty gnarly i like that it has Japan on the main blade and that it has survived who knows what.   

i do like the signed by Tim Leatherman tools some members have.  ok maybe if i had a PST signed by the man himself.

Necro revival.

I read over my post and since then I have several JPSTs.  I'd still like to have on signed to my by the man himself. 

I was thinking more on this and I feel the same with regard to the topic.

Anyone get closer to their grail?  Anyone obtain their grail since last posting here?

At the moment I'd just like to know what an original 1983 Early Winters catalogue PST looks like.  Then I'd know what I'm looking for (or I might even already own one, I have a few early odd-ball PSTs  :facepalm: )

I know what the Cabela's version looks like, but have never seen a picture of a production Early winters version (I'm assuming that like the Cabela's one, the production tools looked different to the photos of prototypes shown in the catalogues).

Since I like learning ALMOST as much as having,  my current holy grail is the book jazzbass is working on.  :dd:

other than that,  I would love an old Vic Champion with a bail,  in user condition is fine.
If I can help, let me know

A blunt nose diesel. A wave with an awl replacing scissors, outside scissors to replace serrated blade and combo blade for main blade. A juice sized gerber dime. A powerlock with all outside tools...........and the hunt continues.

I still have an Early Winters watch from 1983.It was sold as the "Last Watch" because they guaranteed it for life and therefore it would be the last watch you would need to buy.LOL.

I'm not kidding.

I missed the Leatherman PST.
