New to the club,  I've been wanting a Flair for a while now and I had a little windfall so I went looking on the Bay. Found one with make offer that has recently dropped in price significantly. And it had a period correct nylon sheath in good shape (the older padded nylon sheaths did not wear well.) So I made an offer, well 5 to be exact. 4 were immediately rejected, so I messaged the seller and it turned out when they dropped the price they didn't reset the offer accept price. So I ended up making a $120 offer on a $159 tool and getting it.

It arrived today and I'm amazed how good of shape it is. I had to use a little toothpaste to clean some staining of the blade, but it polished up beautifully. The pliers teeth don't show any use, the blade has the factory grind and it's razor sharp as I found while trying to dig out the cheese spreader. First blood.

I decided to compare it to some of my other older tools and this tool is obviously a brother to the Pst ll with the scissors that appear on the Flair, the Pst ll, and the original wave. So I grabbed my Pst ll out to compare. They were made within a month of each other in '99. Pst ll in June and the Flair in July. Lots of rearranging to get the corkscrew, cheese spreader, and cocktail weiner fork in there. The file and can/bottle opener are out. The scissor, and two of the flat blades switch sides and the eyeglass screwdriver is considerably thinner. The can and bottle opener move to the brass corkscrew assist. The shapes reminded me of something, so I dug through my Leatherman drawer and they are similar to what is on the Leatherman mini tool.

So I got the related tools out for some photos. Keep scrolling, there's 8 photos 😁
