I can only hope that you change your mind some day.
I've never owned a PST. I'll show myself to the door.
I'll not crucify you Millhouse. Any particular reason you've not carried it?
I really fail to understand the love for it. There is the Wave and the Surge and other, more exotic tools which all make PST look design- and function-wise outdated.
It is the compact form factor combined with a very capable toolset that make it such a great tool it may look outdated but the design is very solid and functions very well for what it is Think old car vs new car. If you have an old car that is still in great shape and it performs as it should then why not drive it New cars might be fancier and may even perform better but that doesn't mean that there isn't still room for an older car many people buy old cars just for the nostalgia as well (I don't care for old cars personally but can see why others like them )Same with the PST
The interesting thing about my multitool journey is that I thought I knew better...now...having had nearly every multitool pass through my hands at least once...all I can say is that the PST was the perfect tool on the first try. By the numbers...the PST and PST 2 have the highest tool density that has ever existed... quantitative proof there is something behind the magic of the PST.
Very nice Alan. Planning on carrying it?
Different strokes for different folks
Well, sir, you got my attention I am getting curious about this tool now
I haven%u2019t had the pleasure of owning a PST, but, for awhile I did carry my late father%u2019s SOG tool that was similar to it. That tool will deservedly be going to my eldest brother.I also recently bought a couple of my own SOG tools, a PowerLock (far bigger than my Dad%u2019s old tool), and a PowerAccess Assist (a poor man%u2019s equivalent to the Leatherman Charge+), to have something different. I also LOVE my Leatherman Rebar as it builds upon the PST style.I%u2019d love to see a Rebar 2.0, that was slightly thicker and had tools like scissors, and few more. It just has a nice, comfortable form factor that doesn%u2019t sacrifice too much in terms of usability.One advantage that most multitools with inside tools have, is they are protected if and or when the tool is dropped. This is one thing I like about both the PST, Rebar and similarly designed tools. If you drop the tool with all tools closed up, the likelihood of any of them being damaged is low.
There is room in the Rebar for scissorsRebar II (Image removed from quote.)
