:iagree: It is a work of Art and the best MT I have ever used at the same time. Congrats on your new tool, Mad Scientist  :cheers:

But we need some pics :pok: :D

Of course! She ain't camera shy, either...

It's a really good pair of scissors, especially if you do the open up more mod

Thanks and yes.  The Spirits are great pieces of craftsmanship.  Other MTs are nice and have great toolsets and functionality, but the Spirits incorporate that functionality into a tool whose fit and finish is something special

Here's my submission to the club...It's awe inspiring the engineering and thoughts put into these tools; pinned/riveted construction and the action is sooo smooth, they deploy and retract with a solid snap, pliers are smooth opening with no play between parts, and the ergonomics are great. Oooooh, and the finish ... this is one good looking tool that can go with any wear; lovely. I'm thinking I'm going down the notorious rabbit's hole, as all of this has come within a month!!! (and an extension bar and a replacement bit holder are on its way!!!!!)

The L-Wrench from my Swiss Tool kit is probably my most used tool I own.
It’s so bloody handy!

I agree totally!  It is so simple and so useful, and I never feel like I need the ratchet when I'm using it. 

What bothers me a bit about this is the inability to purchase the "L" wrench and bit holder as a complete unit.  You can buy replacement wrenches, or you can buy it as an add-on kit with an expanded tool pouch, or you can buy the ratchet with the bit holder, etc., but there seems to be no option to buy the just the "L" wrench with the bit holder.  If I could do that, I have several kits I would add it to.

Hey folks, I've never owned the Sprit but have had a few Leatherman tools over the years.  I'd order a Spirit if I can convince myself there's a legitimate difference between the two.  Aside from the possibly different tool combinations, how would you differentiate the qualities of Vic Spirit from the Leatherman?  Help me buy one!

There are three things that I feel really differentiate the Spirit from Leatherman:
- All tools are accessible without opening the pliers.  LM usually has blades, saw, and file accessible but not the other tools.
- The ergonomics of the Spirit are better
- The Chisel combo tool.  LM has no tool that is comparable to the “Chisel thingy” (as it is sometimes called) and it is very useful.  It works great as a package opener, scraper, cutter, etc.  In my opinion, the chisel thingy alone would make a nice OPMT that I would want.

With all my love of the Spirit, I think there are a few things that should be mentioned, that some people do not like about the Spirit:
- Whereas many LM are OHO, most Spirits are not
- Many LM have both a serrated and plain edge blade but most Spirits are either or
- The new MXBS (oho) Spirt does not have a saw

 :iagree: But I would put non-OHO as a plus  :D

Some people consider it a plus while some think oho is important and even a potential no-go, which is why I list it as something to be aware.

It really has to be experienced.  The feel is much more solid, and running the risk of upsetting my Leatherman friends, it doesn't have those cursed cast screwdrivers that snap off just when you are applying a little torque.  Each tool opens individually and snaps back into place.  They're literally pocket tool boxes.  I've a number of Leathermans, and was there for the original PST revolution, but these tools are a whole different level.

Precisely.  I actually use the chisel a good bit in whittling and carving.
