-50% on the soldier. How could I resist?
At that price I would have cleaned them out

Ordered a Swisstool Spirit X today.
My first Swisstool after owning many Leatherman tools over the years, I needed something to replace my 4-5 yr old Rebar that is ready to go back to the factory for a refresh, broken spring, loose plier head, damaged wire cutters, and dull file, the Rebar owes me nothing.

Just picked up a classic in the 2021 pattern "Mexican Zarape". Swapped it, as I almost always do, with a Rambler; which means I also picked up another DLT Warhawk Rambler, because they had them in stock and if I'm buying a Rambler for a swap I might as well buy that one.

In today's mail I received this mid-eighties PST with a leather holster:

I found that there is a significant difference between the small screwdriver on this tool compared to the one on another PST I own from the same period.

Yes, today's acquisition pictured on the left has a gentle curve to the left that doesn't belong there. The short, sharp screwdriver on the right appears original, showing no signs of repair or modification. Also, note the difference between the holster that came with today's addition to a true mid-eighties holster.

The new holster on the left is much newer than the eighties. A new Wave fits it it easily. Oh, well, I'm sure I'll find a use for it.
Here is another view of the two tools pictured above:

The one I received today is on the bottom. Sooo much to learn about early PSTs! T-A

My PST came in today and it’s in very nice shape. Not even broken in and has practically no signs of use. They must have been an impressive thing when first introduced. I have always kind of wanted one of these since my dad had one years ago and lost it while the sheath ended up with me. Now I have the proper thing for the sheath.

Excellent condition, from what I can see. Nice score! T-A

Thanks!

A few came in today. Vic climber used for $10, new alox bantam for $20, and a new leatherman rebar for $50.

The rebar is a very nice size and has a great tool set. I intend to carry it for the times I don’t want to lug around my whole LM surge tool kit on my belt. I also ordered the bit kit that adapts to the philips driver.

Paul, nice pickup on the PST. My very first multitool was a PST I bought in the Marines from the ship’s store on the U.S.S. Peleliu. If I remember correctly it was around $40 in 1991. I bought a second one for my Dad. We both still have them. While using the pliers on anything that needed a lot of grip wasn’t always pleasant, I really like them for their compact size. I brought another one home from Grandad’s house when I cleaned it out, and that one stays in the boat. I picked one up at a swap meet that’s as clean as the day it was new for $20 a couple years ago, with the original brown leather sheath in just as pristine condition. I felt a little guilty for stealing it. But my latest one was free. A guy at work was cleaning out a storage area and found one in a box of stuff. He said he already had a multitool and asked me if I wanted it….duh, of course I did. That one was also like new.
I had toyed with the idea of grabbing a Rebar, but when the Bond came out I think that changed my mind. I don’t do work like you, so I think the PST or Bond really would take care of anything I will ever need, but the saw on the Rebar has an appeal. I wish they would offer the Bond with a saw blade in replacement of the knife blade. That would cover my needs. Either way, nice pick up.

Shiny, for now at least. Leatherman checked a lot boxes for me with this one. I always have some type on SAK on me, so my ideal layout would be a Rebar on a clip, minus the plain blade and saw. This gets pretty close. I might swap in a serrated blade down the road if I can grab one for a reasonable price, but overall I’m liking this setup a lot.

Arrived 3 days ago:

My purchase, from that big online auction site, did not include the sheath or the bit extension, but it only set me back $22.80, including S&H.

The plier jaws are a bit tight, but that might be because it was a display model. I own another Multiforce that has jaws that are a bit looser and more to my liking. I don't miss the sheath as I carry it with the pocket clip that is included on all Multiforces. Fit and finish are great, but don't try to purchase accessories. I've searched far and wide and found that dealing with Ozark Trail (Walmart) is not like dealing with Leatherman. I can always get what I need from Leatherman free or cheap. But, then again, comparable Leatherman tools cost twice as much. There's always a trade-off, I guess. T-A

Vic walker. It may be onto something as an ideal campsite/fire making pocket knife, and I love the combo tool.

A small upgrade to the surge, a regular bit extender. The ratchet extension is excellent but not for real heavy duty, so when I need lots of torque I’ll have the regular in my kit. I also picked up another 5/16 and 1/4 reversible bit that we use for plumbing in our impact drills. Doesn’t hurt to have one with the leatherman too for hose clamps and such.

I couldn’t be happier with the way my surge kit has come together over time. It’s the ultimate setup for a work MT.

I have an older Lumberjack with no scale tools that I really like. I know a lot of people absolutely have to have scissors, but not me, I really like the saw. I’ve often thought if they put an awl and corkscrew on a Walker they would really have an extremely versatile 2 layer package.
