Interesting thread to pick up - my Victorinox SwissTool is approaching 20 years old now (which is a bit scary) and has travelled well with me.

It ended up with a replacement pouch after discovering that nylon pouches aren't Labrador proof 9 years ago...

I ended up with a Gerber with some drill bits, so that's semi useful.

Great thread. I'm still using my original shaped leatherman wave from the 90's. At one stage it was rusted solid in the bottom of a boat where I lost it. Found it and rebirthed it and she's still kicking goals.

I still have my old Leatherman (and leather pouch) from 1992.

It's done a big lap on the bicycle with me in 1992/1993, the Cape in 1995 and countless mtb and 4wd trips since then.

I have a Leatherman Skeletool that lives in my 4WD door pocket. Don't use it too often, mainly for the knife and cutting up fruit, had it maybe 10/12 years. I also had another Leatherman but a bigger version (can't remember which one) but I find them too small and uncomfortable to use regularly.
