Don't you think it's time for some new Juice models?
« on: February 04, 2009, 12:48:05 AM »
With the modular design of the Juice series, isn't it time Leatherman made some new variations?

Some ideas from my own brain:
F2 - Diamond file and Knife
K2 - PE and SE knife.
A knifeless Juice with a file and scissors.

I could go on. Point is the line is underdeveloped.

Fan of the Leatherman mini-bit driver and the Vic backspring philips.

I've mixed feelings on this one. Point taken about a knifeless model, but to me at least, it seems that whatever you want, there's going to be something nearly the same already.

The model with the serrated knife and file, was retired - apparently because noone bought it!

I like the knifeless Juice idea as well. Especially if it could make it on airlines...

Have you tried the CS4? It has the corkscrew instead of the serrated blade, but it's a nice tool.

Well, I didn't want to say that, but I was thinking it.

FWIW - I agree with you. A KF4 with scissors would be nice, but I'd want to keep the file.

Kf4, keep the knives and the file, lose the saw. Who uses a Juice saw anyhow?

Keep the file, get rid of the saw, add the scissors.

I like the Kf4 but an alternate version with scissors does appeal to me as well :tu:

I agree that the Juice line is underdeveloped. There's so many options that could be created just by mixing and matching, which seems like it couldn't be that difficult to do. I'd be interested in some knife-less options too...

Sounds goods, but I'd lose the serrated blade and keep the file. :)

Prone to daydreaming.

A difficult thing to do with Juices, on account of their riveted construction :-\

I use it too... It's good for drywall and cutting the kinds of branches you use on a camping trip for walking sticks and whittling. Works as good as any other MT saw I've had. Not that MT saws are known for being super-useful :D, but I think it holds its own against the competition.

Hmmm, well maybe it's just me who isn't much of a saw user? ???

I'm with you, Bob! I like having a saw, but the Juice saw sucks IMO.. It warps quite easily!

They can bend and twist and go out of shape.

Not that I'm doubting you, cause I realize the Juice saw is rather thin, but what exactly are you doing when it bends out of shape? :think: I always thought thin saws were easier/better because you have to remove less material to get the cut.

I was just explaining what warping was.  :D  I don't really use them.
