It was lost...
My mom got my father a Leatherman Squirt S4 for his birthday about four years ago. He said thank you, then he put it on his shelf, and for about a year it sat there. I came along, working in my dads office, and found it. I opened it and took it home because he wasn't going to use it. I used it almost every day of those three years. Last week though, while I was in Barranca de Cobre, Mexico working for a local charity helping the native indian people, I could not find it.
It was my trusty companion and it was never to be found... I was heartbroken, remembering that just yesterday I was cutting a little girls hair with it as she was weaving a basket for me. I came back to the states a few days ago, frantically looking for a replacement, when all I could find was a Gerber Shortcut.
The Gerber came with the blade dull, unlike my Squirt which was razor sharp (I actually had to use it as a razor the whole time in Fiji, where I was handing out pre-made lunches to the kids at school, because I forgot my razor at home.) I used it for one day until I found another Squirt S4. I never really like the Gerber "copy cat" Shortcut. And ironically, the blade broke off as I was opening the Squirt's packaging with it. And now my Squirt is back in its familiar place, on my keychain.
