Thanks cali, that is a Kick  clip. I think you had to buy them  as an add on.

Yup - that's exactly right :)

I figured you could still buy them from LM :facepalm: Glad I still have a couple laying around :whistle: I used them for years as wrenches up til recently when I got my wrenches loki-mobile :cheers:

Even if they discontinued the SS versions they should still make these as they are some of the nicest camo MT out IMO :dd:

I will be able to join this club soon (though not for a few weeks probably, as am ordering from overseas to the UK), as I've just managed to track down and buy a (new!) Leatherman Knifeless Fuse (good for UK knife laws, even more so than the Knifeless Rebar, as no locking awl nor saw, and I don't like the tool clumping on the Rebar)... Will post photos when it arrives! Will be my first proper multitool (not counting SAKs).

I'll report back and post some pictures when I get it, may take a while though as it's being sent from the USA to the UK by quite a slow shipping service to try to save a bit on costs, I'm also going to be away for a few weeks from Sunday

As much as I enjoy the simple things in life such as a Leatherman Kick, I saw one today at Lowes in a taped up Leatherman Wave package and thought to myself, "that's not right." :twak:

I pointed it out to the Lowes associate and offered to buy it, but not for the $89 Wave price it was marked at.  He went and asked a manager and told me, "Sorry, we can't sell it at all because it's not in our system."

Not sure of the rules but I would say just one would allow entrance :D

I like how you are trying to pass other MTs off as Blast and Core :rofl:

Leatherman Knifeless Fuse (good for UK knife laws, even more so than the Knifeless Rebar, as no locking awl nor saw, and I don't like the tool clumping on the Rebar)... Will post photos when it arrives! Will be my first proper multitool (not counting SAKs).

Hi - I've now received my (new!) Knifeless Fuse, am happy with the toolset (and lack of blade), non-clumping of tools (unlike the Knifeless Rebar), relatively small size/ light weight (170g/6 Oz) and comfort, BUT was very disappointed to find that the needle nose pliers don't seem to meet at properly, only at the very tip. even when I squeeze the handles. See the photos below - is this normal? As as far as I can tell from the other pics in this thread, this isn't the case for other people's Kick/Fuse/Blast/Core and seems quite bad considering the pliers are the primary function of the tool.





I think the place I managed to order it from still as some other Knifeless Fuses in stock, should I request a replacement? It's a bit of a pain, though, as I had to order from the US (I'm in the UK), so had to pay quite a bit for shipping and a little for VAT/customs... Almost wish I'd bought a Knifeless Rebar now (as could have bought that in the UK), but hate the tool clumping and have concerns about the locking awl and saw for UK knife laws.

It's pretty normal for the pliers not to touch except at the tip but your gap does look a little bigger than on any of my Fuses (and others using the same plier heads).

It looks like there could be a slight burr on one of the tips maybe?

I doubt it will affect performance much judging by your picture, but maybe its worth seeing if the burr could be filed off?

The tips do seem to have a little more metal sticking out than elsewhere, but looks like they're meant to, doesn't look like a burr, also it seems that the actual closing angle is off - the gap is much larger towards the tool body than near the tool tip, shouldn't this angle be more flat?

No - they shouldn't be parallel - there should be a slight angle (getting narrower towards the tip).

From your pic, it looks almost as though there's something between the tips if you see what I mean. Almost like the pliers are holding something!

I'll see if later I can show a close-up photo of the end of the open tips, though the macro isn't the best on my camera

This is about the best I can do - with flash and without:



The tip of the right hand side is perhaps sticking out a little too much?:

Ooh - they look fine don't they?

I expected to see some sort of excess or burr on one of the tips  :think:
