I've got an ancient one, and it almost looks new. The others are their
newer models, forget the name. A bit bulkier with somewhat nicer tools.

I like the newer little Leathermans with pliers instead of scissors. The
scissors can be a pain, literally, when working with them.

It's amazing to see all the copycat tools out there, few of which are
worth having.

All of them, Leatherman included, have gone pretty far into the trendy
market lately. Some of the stuff is neat of course, but not sure how
well built it is.
