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 But we need some pics

Nice shot They are lovely things aren't they?
The L-Wrench from my Swiss Tool kit is probably my most used tool I own.It’s so bloody handy!
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!!!!!)
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
But I would put non-OHO as a plus
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.
