I wouldn’t look at it as Leathermans costing more but rather our money worth less. But that’s another topic, much more political, that isn’t so relevant here. Lets just look at the price - as a manufacturer (at much, much, much lesser scale) myself I totally get them as all the raw materials went up, utilities costing more and top that with tons of anti virus measurements with questionable effect rather than making peoples lives harder. I’d even go so far as to say they have raised the prices the least amount possible to keep them afloat and do expect another rise soon.

I assumed that Brexit would have lowered the price for US imports to the UK (better trade agreement was promised), possibly also imports from non EU countries, including Switzerland.

Oh, wait... you weren't being serious, were you?
This is the UK. Prices never go down... even our sales are pretty fake.

I do remember pretty vividly Trump promising great trade agreements to the UK once you get out of the EU. So one hoping for better pliers prices doesn’t sound mad to me  :D

Let's leave politics out of the conversation.

If it creates tension of any kind I’m totally fine if you delete my last two posts  :tu: . The forum is about MT’s, I just get carried away sometimes  :oops:

If import duties lowered I imagine it'd probably prompt more of a profit margin than anything else, I thought Whitby's were responsible for setting UK pricing rather than individual retailers and well, they don't look for a bargain old Whitby's :P
