PST's CC Pliers

Nice pics Wow  - But hard to tell the differences    :think:

I think I worked out that 4 onwards added the hard wire notch; 5 onwards added the inner crimper; 6 has the USA sratched out 

But I give in on the differences betrween 1,2 and 3 ?  Can you enlighten us please?   ???

This was a joke  .........  Hence the   .......  :pok:      ???      ;)

And of course the thing that 'is not there' is ....... a blank ...... in the key/description ...... ie there is nothing there - a blank is a nothing   :D

Thought I'd just add my PST in here even though no longer collecting data.   Ive checked and looked under light and magnification and only 1 side is dated - 01/93  - the other side definitely has no date in the handle.  It also has what I believe is the clip/saber point blade.    She needed a bit of cleaning up when she arrived but is now looking in good shape and ready for this years PST challenge  :D

Always good to have more data :cheers: The ones around that time period were known to have one handle with and another without dates stamped inside :tu: Probably used some of the last handles that they had without a stamp on them at that time :salute:

Great pic  :like:

Figured that it was something like that!  Must admit the knife blade is awesome, just finished sharpening and it cuts really nicely.   :D

And here I was thinking it was some kind of rarity! lol   :facepalm:     I didn't have to polish it just dismantle and clean, quite pleased.  Only the file was covered in various layers of crud  :dunno:

Still a bit of a rarity :cheers: not to many of them I have heard of over the years :think: I did have one but sent it to another member here,  years ago, after they sent me a tool I had been after for a while  :woohoo:

Really grateful for this thread. I inherited my grandfather's PST from 2000, and it's in beautiful condition, likely never used.

Hope this helps!

Date Code: 0700/0500
•   Rivets or knurled screws?
          Knurled Screws
•   Lanyard attachment?
          Yes
•   (Old) small diameter or (new) large diameter plier pivot?
          Old style (small)
•   LEATHERMAN alone cast into plier pivot? Or with USA? Or TOOL?
          Leatherman and USA
•   A hard wire cutter notch?
          Yes
•   Handles stamped with what? (see pictures in next post for examples)
          No reg or patent number, like your last picture.
•   Inch ruler only, or inch/metric?
          Inch and metric
•   Date codes?
          0700 on knife handle, 0500 on file side.
•   Drop point knife blade or clip point? (saber?)
          Clip point, newer version.
•   Knife blade tang stamped LEATHERMAN alone? Or with USA? Or JAPAN?
          Leatherman USA
•   Screwdrivers: pivot-in or pivot-out?
          If I'm understanding this correctly they all pivot out.

Nice Farmer X - Looks like someone did a bit of damage sharpening that blade...

That's a small diameter plier pivot - The larger ones came in way after the JPSTs - See OP.

Indeed they did. Aloha told me that prior to him acquiring the JPST, some clod took it to a grinder. Not the appropriate tool for the job! :twak:

Of course, I'd open the chart in a new tab but look at it after I posted photos.  I now know that is has the small pliers pivot, screwdrivers that pivot in, and no date codes. It's a PST "Japanese changes II."
