I don’t know half as much about LM as the rest of you, and what they have done and not done in the past. So I’m not doubting this could be real, but the knife blade makes almost no sense to me.

If you can avoid galvanic corrosion magnacut is next to impossible to rust. So while the steel itself don’t need a coating, you may want to coat the blade to avoid contact with other parts. But LM isn’t known to make very corrosion resistant tools, so why go through all this trouble to have a marine grade diving knife, when the rest of the tool won’t hold up to anything like it?

Just having Magnacut on the blade will probably help sell a good many tools, it’s definitely all the rage these days. And not overly expensive either, as far as I understand. As I already said, magnacut does everything well, so it will never ruin a knife, but it won’t always be the obvious choice. For this type of tool I’d be happy with 154cm or s30v that they already have some experience with.

Awesome renderings. I was hoping for a tool like this for a long time. I only hope that its price would be not exaggerated, especially in Europe. How can I really put out in use a 200+ euro tool

Wow, this is the first LM tool in ages, like 10+ years, that made me go :o Regretfully as you guys already mentioned, the price will probably be way out of my budget.

But hatsoff to LM design team for finally making something interesting and useful :hatsoff:

I'd like to say that after years of ME wanting newer knife steel in LM tools I am happy to see something new.  When I began carrying my Charge TTi the S30V kept me from wanting or feeling the need to carry a dedicated knife.  I'm sure there are others like me not to mention those who just want the next "designer" steel. 

Yay LM.

I think I was zooming in too far, because I couldn't tell that said USA (Or I would have had that text in my rendering)
It could just be that the Magnasteel blade that is made in the USA. Ater all you can slap Made in the USA on anything assembled in the USA.

I don't think anyone selected Magnasteel for anti-corrosion, and more for it being perceived as "the best".

I expect this to be quite expensive. I will still, of course, be getting one, but then probably still swapping a few of the tools.
The can opener is completely useless to me, I would rather have the straight file or even ruler then the can opener.

It’ll certainly be expensive. I think that was part of the point of the Garage series. They wanted to see what the market would bear. If they put titanium handles on it I wouldn’t be surprised at a $250 price point with no discounts. Might even go to $300.

The Swisstool MXBS released last year was $230 (with a pocket clip).  Since the ARC is at least a generation ahead of anything that Victorinox is doing, and the fact that inflation has spiked prices over the last year (in both materials and labor), I do not doubt that it'll be at least $250.

Yeah, too bad though. It’ll keep a lot of people from being able to afford it.

Its certainly gonna be up there in price thats for sure.  I sure hope they dial in everything.  No QC issues.  No fit and finish issues.  The tool looks pretty sweet thats for sure.

I imagine that I will be getting one. That being said, I would have been just as happy if they put out this tool with the regular blade steel. Perhaps even happier, as I probably need to do some research on how tough it is to sharpen this steel.  I don’t mind these super steels when I buy from Benchmade because they will sharpen them. A lot of these steels require a $300 sharpening system and some experience. They aren’t for the amateur.

From what I have read you could use a Lansky guided system or what SAL used on a Mule, Spyderco Sharpmaker.  I'm guessing that was touching up more than actually changing the bevel angle.   

I read that the fine micro structure should lend it to easier sharpening.  I don't think it will be terribly hard to keep the edge keen.

That’s a relief.  Some of these steels are a nightmare.

This tool looks really good, but if it is as expensive as some of you are saying, I will not be getting one.  I just convinced myself last year to get a Free P4 as I have always wanted one but hesitated because of the $150.00 price. I now think it was a good investment, but I would not pay more than $200.00 for a tool, and even that is stretching it. Some of Leatherman's other new offerings, like the Bond, look OK, but seem like a step backwards and do not interest me too much. The ARC at least seems like a good evolutionary step forward!

The key is to use diamond-sharpeners. Stones are no good at this hardness.

I know a lot of people have been asking for better steels on MTs. So, I'm happy for them (if they will be happy with the price is another question :D)
Personally, I would have preferred no blade.
Still probably going to buy one, mostly because it's bringing the diamond file to the Free platform.
It wouldn't be the internet without people complaining.

Swisstool MXBS is $160 here and the Free P4 is $200 and more. We are obviously dealing with loads of import fees/markup. I'm expecting price for the ARC (if we even get it) to be $300+ here, easily.

I just calculated 360,000 won converting to $292.00.  Hoping that this is between $250-$300.  Not paying a penny more than $300 on principle, and even that is questionable.    If I don't land one the sun will still set the next day.

It says March, so we are getting close to finding out, hopefully  :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh

I really do hope that this one meets the hype  :woohoo: the toolset is a really good one. I am not as big of a fan of the Free series platform and I really hope this one changes that :salute:

I just hope that the price is within reason :facepalm: :D

I do like most of the tools, but wish if has a serrated blade vs the can opener. Never understood why a can opener the is on multitools. Should be exciting as this launches and real world reviews and pics start coming out.

I would imagine they will sell for less in the US then the other side of the world in Korea.

 :iagree: but I went to see the price of the Charge on the same website in Korea and it was 291,000 won which is $221.32 in US dollars, so the Arc is possibly going to be more expensive here in the US than a Charge  :facepalm: :oops:

A Charge as of this post is $189.99 :ahhh

So possibly around the $199.99 - $209.99 mark :ahhh
