Yes I've only had 3 Leatherman tools in my 61 years of life. My first was the old 9 piece multitool, with the fixed wire cutter. I put it in the drawer when I got the Marlboro multitool by saving up the Marlboro buck tickets. Then I got with my better half 20 years ago, she went and bought me a st300, for my birthday our first year together.she passed a few years back and I'm still using my Leatherman every day. The other men at work,heavy haul steel beams, ask to use it every day, guess you can't wear out a great tool. I carry it and a 110 buck on my side for over 20 years, only use the buck when the steakhouse knives are to dull to cut my steak, I use the 300 at work fishing,hunting,camping, and those cross country bike trips, I couldn't get by one day without it.oh yeah almost forgot my two other leatherman's, there still in the drawer and ready to be used if I break this one. My nephew is patiently waiting for me to give them to him in my will, we both figoer, they going to outlast me.I not only recommend them to friends but talked 5 or 6 guys I work with into buying there own. Guess it's true you Cant beat a great tool.
