Found a new Minitool in store display!
on: March 31, 2017, 01:50:51 PM
Had to think twice, but given the rarity of finding one brand new, I went for it.
No box but got 2 pouches with it for free.
Also grabbed a beaten up DAK87.

Total price: €77.84

Don't know if that's an awesome deal though... what do those Minitools sell for these days??

Quick pic inside the van since I'm still at work and passed this Army surplus store en route.

Great find :like:

They can go from rather cheap to crazy expensive :ahhh If that one is in great shape or like new shape then I would say it is a great deal though :tu: since it was a display it is probably in new shape so yes definitely a good deal :like:

It's been sitting in the display since the day it arrived.
The glue from the pricetag became all sticky because of it.
So yes, apart from the store, I'm first owner.
The DAK will probably sent in for service to Vic since the large blade got abused. It was sitting in the "surplus" section and costed only€3.5

I think it's a good find if it's a tool you wanted. :tu:

the Sidekick came with that leather slip for sure, though not any more I believe.  I can't think of any others that did. :think:

Thanks!

In another update: the blade didn't become dull during storage.
As the matter of fact, it's quite sharp.
Really sharp actualy...
Is that blood?
I believe so...

...

:facepalm:

Second time in like 12 years :D

Just checked prices btw.
They're for sale on the bay but only from american sellers for an average of $50.
$20 shipping and possible $20 customs costs.
Given the fact that LM costs quite a bit more in Europe, I think I didn't do to bad.

I'd say that ~$80 for a brand new MiniTool in Europe is a pretty good deal. Nice find!
