Keeping up with the "boredom binge", I now have a plain edge blade on my Bladeless; following the results from my serrated edge venture, I bought a Dollar Store paring knife to make a pseudo spear point knife blade ( the spine has no grinding to the point, it merely mimics the curvature of the belly) and, here's the result!
 :woohoo:
Nice set up Juan. keep on hacking

Happy Gilmore, they are as secure as the jigsaw blades in operation but, mind you, since they can't be any wider than the exchanger's channel, they're not as strong as folding/fixed/sak-type/OE MP'S SE or PE blades; they' re more light duty. As a matter of fact, the PE was more a proof of concept, and the one I carry/use is the serrated one.
As for the viideo; sorry my friend, I'm really tech challenged.  :facepalm:  But thanks for asking!  :hatsoff:
 If you'd like some other picture angle/detailed picture let me know to see what I can do.

It’d be cool if you could rig it to hold a scalpel blade.

Received today (or yesterday, depending on your TZ) my new replacement sheath; Gerber CS is wonderfully out of this time! (This is not my first time requesting for warranty/replacements).

 Although I had asked for a Gerber 07510G (blunt nose with bit kit) sheath, whay I received is the standard nylon Center Drive sheath, and it holds my blunt nose, bit kit and saw blades perfectly. I like that the material appears to be stronger, a bit more compact, and is less bulky than the original was; reminds me of the newer gen. of Leatherman sheaths, but without the snap. I like that the logo's embroidered directly (as opposed to the MP's which is on a panel and then sewn onto the sheath), and the option to carry either vertically or horizontally. Speaking of which, my only dislike is that the horizontal carry loops are wider than the sheath and are "offcenter" to the sheath's right side, allowing it to "dangle" lower than the belt's edge; I prefer mine "to hug" the belt and be parallel to it. 

For now, I'm pleased and happy with it, and wanted to put it here as an alternative for someone looking for a good sheath for a blunt nose... and keeping it all Gerber!

Anyone got a line on inexpensive carbide cutters? I need one for this gem.

Handle swap, custom pocket clip, awl from a sight tool, scissors and combo blade from an mp400.

Just needs that one carbide cutter to be finished.

Here is another beauty. No pocket clip on this one yet, but it is modified to be a faux scout instead of a pro scout. Scissors and combo blade from an mp400, saw from a completely different multitool. Ground and filed until it matched the gerber tool profile. This one needs a short eyeglass driver to be perfect. The one in there was broken and I had to reprofile it.

Final mod for my sight tool. Added scissors from an mp400, awl from a center drive, and filled out the remainder of the tools from like-new spares. Swapped plier head with a brand new blunt nosed tool, as that is my preferred plier. Pocket clip is a zero tolerance titanium clip from eBay. This has the sexy new style lock sliders and the sight tool’s long Phillips and extra large blade.

I kept the blade instead of a saw in this one. All mp600s should come with this blade. There is no excuse for the tiny one that is in 99% of them.

This one is a bit milder. It’s my first ever multitool. A MP600 pro scout I snagged on eBay for $14. I’ve since made it bladeless and swapped in the missing large flat driver. Also turned the end of the file into a gasket scraper.  No clip on this one yet either, but it’ll have one eventually.

This is my EDC mp600. Reprofiled blunt pliers, diesel scissors, saw, file, large flat driver, and bottle opener.  Awl from a fisherman. Bladeless obviously. Another titanium zero tolerance clip. This was actually the first mp600 I put a clip on. Bit kit and sheath from a cheapie Chinese tool, but it works great.

Last but not least, this is my Center Drive. Modded with a saw holder from a black pro scout. Not easy to find. Also sporting a zero tolerance clip. I love this tool!

If anyone has an mp600 with broken tools or wants to mod, I have lots of extra parts for trade.

Nice mods there, CC; I'd have to say that the ST and "Faux Scout" are the best!

Maybe these will help,

Good luck, and keep 'em coming!

Here is the final iteration of my Sight Tool mod.

Compared to last time, you'll first off see I got a black titanium oxide coated clip instead of the bead blasted clip, to match the tool.

You'll also notice that I removed the lanyard ring and the awl from the Center Drive. In its place is a 1/4" socket driver from a SOG multi-tool. I bought the socket driver off the SOG website, and then ground and filed it to fit the MP600 profile. I then heated it up with a torch and dropped it into used motor oil to give it a DIY black oxide coating.

A rail of SOG bits and bitdriver adapter fits with the MP600 in a standard Gerber molle sheath. It's a really slick setup. The 1/4" socket tool makes the MP600 even more versitile. I can use the bitdriver adapter and bits in the tool. I can combine it with a cheap extension like you'd use in a power drill. I can use it for 1/4" drive sockets. I can use a real #2 bit instead of the compromise phillips driver, to get the maximum amount of bite and torque to a screw. My ST is now almost my perfect multitool... unless I happen to need a saw. Then I'm boned. Even so, it's still currently my favorite heavy-duty EDC. I'm debating swapping the scissors out for a saw, since I always have a Minichamp or Schrade DL-2 on my keys (depending on which vehicle I'm driving)... but will probably just leave this as it is.

Oooh my; 7 days without a post here! :facepalm:

Well let me fix that: :tu:
here's my bladed MP600 Bladdless out for today, helping with garden chores (here it is resting after clearing the banana and plantain "trees", twisting some bail wire to keep the plants tidy, and tightening the faucet's loose handle).

Guys, i've ordered one. I found the price ok and... i wanted a bluntnose anyway. But i do have a couple of questions. First is: can i remove all the tools from it without having issues with the closing/opening of the pliers? Reason is, i hate how they look. And second: in order to use it also for cutting wire, this remains the recommended part? https://littlemachineshop.com/products/product_view.php?ProductID=1724 Thank you!

The link to the little machine shop inserts is the correct one ( as noted here https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,84840.0.html) but, if you don't mind me asking, why take the tools out just to have the pliers head; you will be defeating the purpose of a multi tool. Wouldn't you be better off having dedicated pliers?,they'll be stronger and cheaper (anyway, just MHHO).

I'll try to put some other tools inside. And this one should be a part of a tiny repair set that i could carry around. The lighter, the better.

After a few days, i can say i enjoy my bluntnose. The only tool i really hate is the straight blade. It looks... bleah! On the other hand, the cross-driver takes leatherman removable bit adapter perfectly. The pliers can cut some decent wire, so all in all, it is what i wanted. And i thought the Evo 23 is the best to pair it with. Without too much redundancy.
