Little man survived a trip to deepest darkest underneath of my house .



I was doing a little inspection of the water line's and heat duct work.

I used the serrated blade to cut into a few places to see what I could.



I found no issues. :D

Well the leather sheath I got to replace the ugly nylon sheath is already wearing out and looks rough. I'm swapping my st300 into a skinith.

Mexico made sheath :(   st300 made in USA :) skinith made in Canadian :)

So the supertool 300 doesn't have enough clumping to use the smaller tools with gloves?

my st300 was so tight I had a hard time getting anything to open at first. Its breaking in but its not as smooth as my rebar. They clump and want to stay clumped if that makes sense. Its getting better and better the more I use it. I always keep it oiled

a new tool can take a little bit to break in. I'm not going to fault leatherman for it yet.

I understand. In my experience Most Leathermans need a breaking in period

Not much work for the fat man today. I was supervising carpet being installed. Yeah it was a long boring day.

I did cut some carpet with both blades for the hell of it. I LIKE the longer blades. Both sliced through carpet easily.



it did feel a little heavy on my belt today but that's the new skinith's fault. :P

No action for the Fat Man so far today. He's riding along with me while I plow snow.

Well that might explain why the ST300 felt a bit heavier on your belt. :P That thing is packed. :D

Let's see if I get it right.

Chapman's ratchet and bit adapter in the right side pocket, bits and Croc in the penta pocket, Fenix E01 in the left side pocket.

Did I guess right? What do I win. :D

Fat man and me spent some time fixing mailboxes. Nothing the st300 couldn't easily handle.

here I'm using it to bend a lid back im place so I can rivet it together.



the fat man chilling out catching some sun .

Well I've found another tool I need to add to my list! I really like the look of the st300. Looks to be a real heavy duty tool! I love my wave though and it's seeing more and more use as I use it for fault finding.


Is there much size difference to the wave? And is it comfortable to use the pliers? Just with the metal edges

You should give the super tool a try Sparky.

its a totally different tool than the wave. Heavier and brick like compared to the wave.

the flat edges your worried about are rounded on the st300 making the pliers more comfortable .

I prefer the st300 :P

See I love my wave but only really compare it to a swisstool. I've just read a diary type thread about the rebar? And can get one on amazon for £43. Might be my next purchase instead of a octane and I'll have a little save for the supertool. January is a tight month

Haha not a gerber fan? ;-) I may forget the rebar. I don't really pound on my tools. But the rebar seems to be quite tough.

i think the core bit kit fits, but please dont quote me.
i like my st300 so much i put an actual bit driver from a surge in it. the wave driver should fit the rebar too, though my wave is stock from the factory.

Yes, it has exactly the same long Phillips driver as the Blast/Fuse/Kick so that adapter will fit.
