A Great Loss.....
I had a Leatherman c302/c303 for about 18 months. I've carried a lot of different pocketknives over the years and was skeptical of this knife when I first bought it. It was so incredibly light!!!! How could something this light and smooth stand up to the abuse that I put a knife through?
I carried it for about a week and decided to check the edge, figuring it would need a touch-up. Nope, still razor sharp.
I was pleased. I continued to use it, happier every time it came out of my pocket. It fit my hand so well, I was amazed. Well balanced, always sharp, smooth draw, and very quick to open one-handed.
I was very impressed.
I'm a volunteer firefighter, and this knife had been used to cut ropes, seatbelts, hose, everything. That knife saved lives. And it had a beer bottle opener!!!!
Our house recently got broken into and the knife just happened to be sitting on my dresser. It was taken, along with many other valuable things, but I think I miss that knife the most. I can honestly say, though, that I'm sold on the Leatherman blades.

The sleek aluminum handle and 420HC stainless steel blade were crafted in Leatherman's feature-rich tradition.
