I'm leaning more towards a V2.0 that has had a good polish.  The pliers look like V2.0 pliers to me (significantly more robust than the weird looking "skinny" V1 pliers), as do the internal tools.  How thick is the lanyard attachment ?  It was super thick on all of my V1's, but somewhat narrower on V2's (still thick though).
Ahhh, the lanyard attachment, forgot about that.  This is the narrower one with an equally sized spacer next to it....your version 2.0 seems right to me.  :tu:
Rest in peace ColoSwiss, you will always be remembered.

Just posted this in the what's your latest Gerber thread, but thought it belongs here too.
A new-to-me black oxide Multiplier never opened from what I can tell with the seal wrap still on.
Unsure when I will open it.  :dunno:

You know Lisa, it's almost worth preserving.  I had a new in package OG Super Tool that I opened up, as well as a 2006 Vic Soldier that was the same way.  It was a tough call but I love those seals on your MP.

I figure I'm not going to use it anyway, so I'll keep it sealed, at least for a while longer.

One more Mr. Pinchy in route.  Never had one with Fiskars on it.  I don't think that sheath is original.  :dunno:

Does it have the infamous Gerber "Awl of Death" instead of the file ? 

I'm not sure why, but Gerber kept fitting the awl to the Fiskars branded Mr Pinchy, long after they replaced the awl with the file on their regular Mr Pinchies. 

I guess someone at Fiskars (and IIRC Fiskars swallowed up Gerber at some stage) really, really liked awls.

When Gerber accepts a warranty on a Mr. Pinchy via photo, what replacement item do they send?  :think:

I'm quoting myself because this mystery will soon be solved.
I'm expecting a package from Gerber today that will be a replacement for a broken Mr. Pinchy.  Stay tuned.  :hatsoff:

The replacement for a broken Mr. Pinchy, at least what I received, is the MP600.

Congrats on such a nice tool and, right you are; that sheath, although not original to your tool (or even vintage), belonged to an interesting multi tool from Gerber, aimed at cyclists (Bicyclists, that is). Here's a picture, and a link to some info.
