Manufactured by Bear & Sons (Bear MGC), the Bear Jaws 155 was introduced in 1996 and was the first “PST” styled multitool to offer external opening blades.
I recently got hold of two quite badly damaged Leatherman Blasts in trades, and fortunately the damaged / missing parts on each were different, so I decided to make one good tool from the remains…
