Quote from: RicHT
Ahhh i feel guilty for asking the question now, haha! But great answer. I can fully understand the 'sweating thinking about it' part!   :rofl:  :cheers:

Im mainly leatherman, but i have a few saks, but i always fancied trying out a Gerber. The problem i have is that once i get one, i always fancy another, and then another, and then...........before you know it, its gotten out of control! just like what happened shortly after i bought my first leatherman! Sound familiar anyone? :rofl:
It was a good question and thank you for asking. It wasn't something I had given much thought to.  :cheers:

I completely understand not branching off into more brands. The whole collecting thing, for me, began with a search for something to replace a Gerber Multi-Plier, which I had carried everyday over 10 years) that was at the end of its' usable life(however, since I began restoring the MTs I buy to some extent, it is now being used by my father). I first bought a PST, then a Crunch, then an MP600, then some cheaper tools(kind of fell for the cheap-charm). You're spot-on though, as MTs seem to be a highly addictive hobby. Functional, aesthetically pleasing, easy to maintain, take up less space, mostly affordable(compared to cars and such), and have a great community here at MT.o.

Leatherman is definitely one of the best brands to get into. They are pretty consistent in quality, where Gerber and SOG have and/or do produce some pretty bad tools alongisde their better tools.
There is a lot to like about  Vics, Gerbers, SOGs, Bear & Sons, old Schrade, BuckTools, Ganzo, etc. It is a lot of fun seeing all the brands together. Each company has a lot of great tools.

Again, thank you for asking, RicHT. :cheers:

Many thanks for the kind words, microbe!  :cheers:

been so absent from this thread lately.
I knew that your first pick would be LM,   :whistle: and I was really looking forward to the updated chest and collection pics!  :o :gimme:

you choose Leatherman for work and job use,  ;)
but it was a MultiPlier that lighted up the fuse,
as a very long time Gerber user, you were a fan,  :)
both brands are great, thus GerLeatherBerMan  8)

you explored  the first Leatherman tool, also the Crunch,
returned to the MP series and got cheap tools...a bunch  :D
you were able to tell the bad from the good quality,
quickly starting to make your MT collection a reality   ::)

staring with Gerber and LM, the two original tool brands, :angel:
building up on SOG and Vic in an effort that still stands
You found all the weird, the old, the odd and the rare  :o
the variety you built, surely nothing can quite compare

After all you finally set up a storage place
that is up to this great collection's worth,
you've proven fast in this awesome race,
and I encourage you: keep going forth:cheers:

So, the felt is more of an antique-gold/marigold color, but looks pretty good. And it was dirt cheap.  I'll take some nicer pictures soon, but here is how the felt looks instead of the blue towel liners.
I moved most of the keychain tools to another storage to make room for future acquisitions. The Radius and Recoil still don't fit with the thinner felt. Oh well.
