No, just a really good quality stainless steel spoon, a vice, hacksaw, file, sandpaper.....and a strong drive to make a cup of tea  :woohoo:

That is awesome that you hand modded this :tu: looks like a job well done :like: :like:

I recently decided, regarding my assortment of Leatherman MUTTs, that maybe I should part with duplicates. Unfortunately, I have no duplicates! Some are very similar, but for very by subtle features, like how course the teeth are on the plier Jaws or the shape of the catch that holds the tool in the closed position. Here's my MUTT family:

First and most obvious difference is MUTT EOD vs MUTT. Different jaws and skinny pink for disassembling weapon vs pointy spike for making hole in plastic explosives for blasting cap. Titanium pocket clip I p vs newer stainless steel clip with tan plastic space. Fine tooth plier jaws vs newer coarse tooth jaws. Different hook used to keep tool locked in closed position. There may be more variations including shinny vs black oxide. There are also differences in the included accessory wrench used for adjusting gun sights. Please see my follow-up posts for photos.
For those of you that are still with me, thanks for watching! T-A

My misspelling of MUT is something I come by honestly. I spent 40 year working as a mixed practice veterinarian. I have provided veterinary care for countless MUTTs as well as purebreds! Will somebody please inform my spell-checker of this discrepancy! T-A

These, along with your prior post, are fantastic comparisons of variations.  Great job!

Hi, Im new to the club but maybe someone here can help me.
A few days ago, I got a MUT (newest version all black) but it's a PITA to remove the large bits from the handle, you need another tool to push them out.
Any advice on how to correct this?
I cleaned the tool with Clenzoil before using it, but this did not help at all, I applied oil but the bits still won't come out!
Thank you.
Enjoy!

Maybe file down the bit ever so slightly?  It’s supposed to be tight so they don’t fall out, but I understand the issue myself.  Haha

Maybe watch a YouTube tutorial?  There could be a super easy known technique or built in function like the pliers have to be open to remove it or whatever.  Did you read the instructions like I didn’t?

I found this here about how to release the bits from the holder: https://tacticalreviews.co.uk/?p=895

(   :-[ Now I see it's about the large bits. Just hit the hammer side on something f.e. your handpalm and they fall out)
