Most people don't realize it, but grape skins are the primary ingredient in the black oxide treatment of Leatherman products.  The same oxide that protects the grape from oxidation also protects Leatherman MTs from rust and corrosion.  It is one of nature's many miracles.  Tim Leatherman is a vegan and discovered this trick many years ago while on a vacation in Greece.  Incidentally, Tim had an upset stomach from eating too many grapes on that same trip, and the MT name "Squirt" came to him in a vision while spending several minutes in a porta potty in Thessaloniki.

My most carried MT must be the BO Wave I've got via a trade with Sos24.

And yours has a Cap Crimper even. Is that original?

Yes, it is the original plier head. I have a SS Wave that I swapped in a Charge ALX cap crimper plier head, but this one has been unaltered by me. I got it cheap ($40 shipped) because the sole pic with the listing was of the unopened tool. I didn't know it was a cap crimper until I received it.
