we gave my oldest son a leatherman original when he was 12 he carried it for 5 years then he purchased a wave and carries it still today and hes 26. i have carried a blast for 8 years but ordiginally had a supertool i used when i went on disister relief. about 3 years i went on a mission trip to israel and gave my supertool to a missianary he was so thankful for the gift, he said when he worked in the sates he had one he carried all the time but could not take it to israel he was glad to have one again.every where i work at i use my blast and people are amazed at what it will do. i evan have one for sunday, thats my back up for when i need to send one of for repair.SO THANKS FOR MAKING SUCH A GREAT TOOL I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITH OUT IT. I WOULD LOVE TO BE A SPOKESMAN FOR LEATHERMAN!!!!!!!!
