I’d be happy to join in with this, but I’m going to need someone to buy me an OHT from the US Leatherman site and post it to the UK.

Anyone fancy it? The black with black molle sheath is showing as in stock for you guys, but not on the European site.

After the lat OHT challenge I was in, I gifted my Black OHT to Rapid Ray for being a great cheerleader for the entire month.

Did not think I would use an longer since I retired. 

Wrong!  After a few months I yearned for the only try one handed tool LM made, so much handier than my Gerber Diesel and MP400.

So I found another black and it sees action most frequently!🙄🤪👍😎
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

My son got me interested in them, and Zoidberg kindly gifted one to me.  I use mine all the time!

I’m too late to edit this post, but if anyone does have the time to grab me an OHT, I’ll obviously pay for the tool, shipping, and a bit on top for the trouble.

I re-read it and realised it looked like I was after a freebie.

I overlooked it when they were available in the UK, but most of the people who post about them on here seem to like them.

I love a challenge as much as the next member but, quite frankly, I'm not a fan* (see below, Daredevil Challenge)

* Not for sale though  :pok:


DAY 30

After the parched looking ghost Chilli yesterday here's the OHT with a well hydrated Lily  :tu:

I think it's fair to say that this has been a struggle for us awl.

For me it has been less of a struggle simply because I had chosen a LM (albeit one I just can't get on with  :dunno: ) Therefore, it's well designed and well constructed.

However, I find the OHT blades too short and the plier locking mechanism too fiddly (it just moves on its own) Moreover, it's VERY bulky and has no scissors  :rant: It's mostly done everything asked of it but, due to work demands, I've not needed to use it as I used my O/G Surge during July (which is just typical  ::) )

I guess that if push came to shove I could use it for work, but I wouldn't choose it over my Surge or, if I'm honest, my original work issue MP600. I guess it's just ok  :dunno:

If I had to choose just one LM MT it would be my O/G Surge (not had a chance to use my new B/O one yet because of this challenge  :pok: )

However, I do like my MXBS and if they made a Surge sized one.... :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh   

Well done AWL.... :clap: :clap: :clap:
They don't like it up 'em!

It's always interesting how different people have such different opinions - personally, I think my Swisstool MXBS is one of the worst multitools in my collection (ugly BO coating, extremely stiff operation, bad one-hand opening design).

The black tool, black sheath combination still shows as in stock when I change to the US site. Even gives a button to check out with ApplePay, then says delivery to my (UK) address is not available.

Tim Leatherman told me it is okay to use both hands on the OHT.  If more people knew this, it might have not been discontinued.

Hello Awl
I might as well jump on this bus.
I have one  but she is a shelf dweller so perhaps action is needed.

Farewell, OHT, king of one-hand deployables, whose long and faithful friendship those who knew you won't forget! Though your body will decay, your spirit lingers on in the hearts of those you once served. May our memory of you ever flourish, and your human friends find solace for the loss they have sustained.
