There was swirls in the finish of the pocket clips and they were selling them for 46.00!!!! I should have bought 3!
The Griptillian on the bottom of the picture is what I paid 80 for, black blades with thumb hole combo edge and the OD green scales. I got 2 of them, one for my brother as a gift and one for me. I also put another like this with a Tanto point away in case I ever lose this one. The knife upper left is my trusty Gerber Speed Blade, it has been service since 2004.
The Leatherman is new. I lost my 22 year old classic recently and I guess I was acting weird without it so Nancy came home one day with this new Wave. I still miss my old one but the Wave is a good quality tool. I use these tools a lot.
