    I know they’re available here with the blade already fitted, but pricey though, I don’t know what the combined price of your tool and blade was going to be? I don’t think leatherman will honour the warranty with these either. Have you taken one…

    I like Jimmypies, looks good, simple, clever, everyone knows instantly what it means.
    I’d start with your initials, name or nickname, username, something personal to you and try to incorporate it in a design.

    Hi guys, I managed to get one last knife from Frank before his prices went back up, a L21 drop point. Out of the box I noticed lock up was later than my others, about 65%ish. I took it apart to fit the lanyard, cleaned and relubed it and after putting…

    My dad died a couple of weeks ago, aged 79. Today my mum gave me his watch, which my sister and I gave him for his 60th birthday.

    He was left-handed and he used to wear his watch on his right hand, but upside down so that the crown wouldn't scuff his…

    That’s much appreciated Richard, I don’t think I’ve had a conversation with Frank yet where your name wasn’t mentioned, it would be great to see some pics of your collection, you did hint earlier we’d get to see your latest acquisitions at least :)

    I appreciate your thoughts guys, I am hesitant to get rid but I try to go through life without accumulating too much crap. Obviously I’ll keep the birth cards. Maybe future sales will all be done face to face if the government have their way and…

    Hi, I’ve no intention of building a vast collection like some of you guys but there are a few I’d really like to own and I can’t foresee a time I’ll want to sell up but I suppose you can never say never, is it really necessary to save all these…
