Leatherman Juice KF4 - Australian Camo Scales

Leatherman Juice KF4 – Camo

As a collector on a budget, I am resigned to the fact that there are some rare examples of Leatherman tools that I am very unlikely to add to my collection. Every now and then however, I get a pleasant surprise…

Spyderco UKPK

Video: Spyderco UKPK G-10 v FRN Lightweight

I got my Spyderco UKPK at the end of 2009, and I can honestly say that it has lived up to the expectations I had of it. When fellow multitool.org member Dan (Cerbera147) offered to lend me his new Lightweight FRN UKPK to compare, I practically snatched his hand off! Hopefully the following video review will be helpful and or interesting to anyone interested in the new UKPK.

Leatherman Sideclip Mat v Polished Finish

Polished Leatherman Sideclip

I have had something in the region of 50 Leatherman Sideclips pass through my hands in the last couple of years as I have organised forum group buys and internet auction sales, but there was a particular version of the Sideclip that eluded me up until recently….

Buck 110

New knife – Buck 110

I was recently offered a Buck 100 lockback knife at a good price and decided to take the plunge and have a proper look at one. It arrived this morning and although I’ve seen and handled many cheap copies of the distinctive American classic, I was quite surprised about a few things….

Leatherman Wave 25th Anniversary Model

Leatherman Wave (2004)

In 2004, Leatherman unveiled an update to their most popular and biggest selling multitool, the Wave. Although the overall look and concepts of the original Wave were retained, several enhancements and improvements were made to keep the Wave at the forefront of multitool design….

Buck X-Tract Series

Buck X-Tract Series

The Buck X-Tract series of multitools is an interesting departure from the plier-based, butterfly opening styled PST clones offered by the majority of manufacturers. Resembling a folding knife more than the accepted multitool format, the X-Tracts are very capable multitools.
