Modified Leatherman Charge Ti
on: August 13, 2008, 08:57:03 PM
Not finished yet, but i still wanted to show it.

This Charge Ti was built from the ground up using new original parts and has two plain edge blades made from 154CM, one of which is going to be about 90 % serrated in a few days time.

Other differences:

- The two weak pins that hold the pliers in the closed position were removed.
-The large bitholder was replaced with the big Philips screwdriver from the Blast, so now i can use the removable bitdriver with normal sized bits.
-The small bitholder was replaced with a longer and smaller screwdriver from a Blast, and traded places with the large screwdriver, to accomodate for the pliers.
- The standard eyelet was left out in favor of the possibility to use both the quick-release lanyard ring and quick-release pocketclip together.

What do you think sofar ?

plus one :cheers:

it looks really useful indeed.

ive always wanted to remove the eyeglass screwdriver bit holder and replace it with either big phillips or the bit holder,for my surge,so yours is very close to my ideal tool too.

youre an artist.

Not that you would but I wonder what could go in place of the scissors.  I know most of you like them but I have no use for one on a knife.  Just curious what some other options would be.  Consider the question as a future project for me.....very future. 

Almost forgot.....its looks great.

Very interesting mod, kwakster!  :cheers:

I think you have developed a much more practical configuration for most people, since they would be using the philips anyway and can now handle recessed screws. And with the bit driver accessory, you don't lose anything anyway.

Out of curiousity, do you know if the Core philips head would fit in a Charge?

At this moment a famous custom knife maker is taking care of making the serrations on 4 blades from 154CM for me, as i lack the tools to do this properly.
As soon as i have them back i will put each in another modified Charge or Wave.

But what to do in the end with them ? ???
One is going to a very dear friend of mine, but then i will still have 3.....
Hmmmm....  ::)

Very nice!

It always struck me as odd that Leatherman made so much hype about upgraded blade steels, then charged a premium for the tool, then didn't bother to make both blades a premium steel!
