Thanks, all! Yes, I lucked out...just very light scuffing on one side of the pliers....very minor. No rust or discoloration. AND....I got the tool adaptor and bits too! Very happy!!

PS...not sure what happened with the autotext in my reply...my sentence came out pretty weird!

The PST really did get so much right :salute: the Bond is suppose to be its predecessor but doesn't seem to have the same charm that the original design does :dunno: :salute: :like:

OK, no Tuesday, but Thursday. A PST was found, it included a sheath.

At home, giving it a once over, many differences are evident.  No date stamp inside the handles, the plier head has sharer edges and only Leatherman imprinted on the pivot, both sides. The handles are riveted, and LEATHERMAN stamped on one side of one handle. And the blade has Japan stamped on the pivot below Leatherman.

 
 

Tools awl appear to be 100%, some grime, or maybe rust in the joints near pivots, and on the file.

So look forward to detailing.

Via research it would seem that this is the PST model made by LM in Japan.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Thank you and too Echotech as well,

I read about LM making some PSTs in Japan, and never saw one until today.  I was attracted by the sheath first, then everything pointed to a PST, yet several little things really surfaced.

Without the stamp, is there a date range these were built?  How many were built?

I know I was lucky bring one home, and will clean it up and oil it up before using.

It was gummy/sticky. So presently sitting and soaking in Dawn blue/water for a couple days.

Will see what color the water turns…
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Congrats LC ...that is a nice sheath  :like:   :ahhh

The multi tool included appears older than the sheath ('85-89). I can take care of it if you don't like it  :D
