Hi all
on: December 30, 2007, 02:01:28 PM
Found this forum while looking for info on the Gerber Legend. LOTS of info here! I've got a lot more reading to do. Anyway, I've pretty much made up my mind that the Legend is what I want so now all that is left to do is the saving of money and the begging of wife. :)

Glad we could be of service Crash, and welcome to the forum!

Make sure to let us know what you think of the Legend when you get it!

Welcome Crash.  As for begging the wife; it's easier to ask forgiveness, than to ask permission. :D

The legend does look pretty cool.  8)  As Def has already said, please do let us know what you think about it.

Welcome, i'm sure you'll love the legend! Which one are you going for the 800 or the 700? Both are excellent tools!

Welcome!!! I've only been here a few days and I'm already up to a gazillion posts, well maybe not that many but my wife is already complaining about how much I'm on here. I told her if she bought me a new tool I'd get off the internet and play with it. As you can see I'm still on here so you can guess how that is going.  :gimme:

Thanks for the great welcome guys. I'm gonna go for the 800. I'll see if I can find one barely-used first and if that doesn't work, I'll go for the spankin-new 70 buck version.

Awesome! The 800 is a pretty nifty tool. Thumbstud one-hand-opening knife blade, and thumbstud one-hand-opening scissors. (You don't see that too often!) The spring-loaded pliers are nice too. :)

My only concern is how wide the pliers open. From what I've seen in pictures, the jaw width may be a bit on the narrow side. Anyone have the exact numbers in comparison to maybe a Wave? <---prolly not the right forum for this question so I'll start a new thread if need be.

I measured the jaws of a bunch of tools a while back, but the 800 wasn't included since I don't have one... yet!

I'll try and get a comparison pic of the wave and 800's jaws done for you.
