Had this since it was released, I would think - for over a decade.
Has the green edition, incredibly delicious, transparent design helps give the tool a "Cyber" feel. :)
By far my favorite tool!
It has been with me everywhere - built many computers, fudging with high voltage, taken apart so that might not been intended to be removably, has also kept up with the lab in the recent past. Indispensable.
The tools are still in really good shape, has certainly dropped fifties times but the plastic has not cracked, scratch marks have been added, but it must be expected with such a dear tools. Victorinoxlogon is still intact, of course ...
Only the toothpick has been lost, hehe. The tiny screwdriver stored in the corkscrew has been used much but has done well. The thing that probably took the biggest beating is the smallest Torx bit, but also it can be used.
(Parts available for purchase on eBay, among others.)
The only negatives I can think of:
- Is that the springs used in scissors and forceps went off after a few years, have started to think about replacing these to give the tool a little better feel, but may perhaps think that these should have kept a little better, Leatherman has neater solution to this .
- The entire tool stuck together with rivets instead of any other way.
So, unfortunately enough to deduct a star for "repairability".
If you count on what the cost will not be many pennies each time it was used.
