I can only hope that you change your mind some day.   :tu:

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 There is the Wave and the Surge and other, more exotic tools which all make PST look design- and function-wise outdated.

I've never owned a PST. I'll show myself to the door.

Let me join you  :P

:rofl:

I'll not crucify you Millhouse.  :D  Any particular reason you've not carried it?

When I bought the PST, I pretty much knew I would never carry or use it. Just wanted to own a little piece of MT history.

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

It is the compact form factor combined with a very capable toolset that make it such a great tool :salute:  it may look outdated but the design is very solid and functions very well for what it is :tu:

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 :D 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  :cheers: )

Same with the PST :tu:

 :iagree: except I like old cars :rofl:  Actually, for me I still remember the excitement of my Dad over the PST.  We wound up getting him an RB Winters version back in 1983.  He carried it until 2004 when he gave it to me.  I lost it shortly thereafter :facepalm:  It's partially nostalgia, and I think the build quality is a good bit better than a lot of newer models. 
I think I'm going to go get mine :D

Even though I don't own one - it's small, has a well-thought-out toolset, and the form factor is nice and simple.... The form factor might seem outdated (since you have to open the tools to get at them) but I there's something about it that I prefer.  It's not flashy. 
I carry a Micra instead of a Style for the same reason.

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.

Like so many tools/people over the years. The right tool/person, in the right place, at the right time.

None are better, just different  :dunno:

I have had a number of LM tools over the years, some lost  :'( some given away  ::) and some stolen  :rant:

I may not have used my (J) PST much since getting it, via a very decent member here  :salute: :tu: but it represents where my journey started. There were SAKs prior to this but long before this forum existed.


I'll treasure my PST and use it for the upcoming challenge but, it's mostly just about where it all started  :multi:    :drink: :salute: :tu:

Never had (or even touched) a PST.
Pretty rare here. When one apear the price is something between 200 and 100 USD.

But in my opinion, is a really beautifull multitool.

I never had a PST, until just about an hour ago. :mail:
Thanks to the generosity of SteveC my 09/98 dated PST arrived, cleaned and oiled, and looking almost new.  It has a curious logo on it that has the word firey under a lightning bolt on one side of a dotted line and a large X on the other side of the dotted line. I'm interested in finding out about the company if anybody knows anything.  They surely couldn't be bad if they were handing out Leatherman tools.  :D  Thank you again to Steve! :hatsoff: :cheers:

I absolutely will carry it. It will become part of my regular rotation as soon as the challenges are over.  Until then I will leave it out on my desk so I can at least play with it while I'm reading through MTO. :D

I am with you.  While the PST may be the OG multitool the Wave to me is the ultimate and most innovative.  To me Leatherman tools are BW and AW (Before Wave and After Wave).

If I could only have one and I had to choose between the Wave and the PST I'd go with the PST   :tu:

The Wave is a great multitool, but the size and functionality of the PST is brilliant.

Very true.  I will say if it wasn't for the Wave I would be right there with you PST guys.  I don't care for the Skeletools, Free series, Signal, etc.  The Surge is too gigantic.  I have a lot of respect for the PST and if it wasn't for the PST the Wave wouldn't exist.

Sometimes simple is better and the PST feels like it's about half the weight of the Wave too.  You know how NASA spent millions on a pressurized pen that would write in space while the Soviets just used a pencil.  That's what it reminds me of.  Simple and fully capable.

That is the beauty of a PST, simple, elegant but very functional :salute: The Rebar almost gets that same level but just doesn't have as small of a form factor nor the nostalgic feel :salute:

I haven’t had the pleasure of owning a PST, but, for awhile I did carry my late father’s 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’s old tool), and a PowerAccess Assist (a poor man’s equivalent to the Leatherman Charge+), to have something different. I also LOVE my Leatherman Rebar as it builds upon the PST style.

I’d 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’t 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 scissors
