For the first 38 years of my life, I coveted a genuine Leatherman multitool. So, when my partner bought me a Leatherman Crunch for my 38th birthday, I recall being simultaneously delighted, yet slightly disappointed as I handled a proper Leatherman for the first time. The following is a detailed look at the history of the original Leatherman Tool, the PST, that has become an obsession of mine during the last four years. Much of the following information and supposition is drawn from the incredible Leatherman PST Chronology Project thread from the forums at multitool. The PST was eventually brought to market by the newly incorporated Leatherman Tool Group in , and after a sluggish start became a roaring success. There is evidence that parts made in each location were shipped backwards and forwards, with assembly taking place in either location for several years. This makes it very difficult to pinpoint the precise age of a PST from the s, but there are some things you can look out for during this period to narrow it down. From , LTG started stamping the inside of PST handles with date codes a practice that continues today with newer Leatherman designs and things become easier. The diagram opposite shows the key components of the Leatherman PST, many of which can be used to approximate the period during which the tool was manufactured. For example, some features such as the Hard Wire Cutter Notch and the lanyard Ring were not present in early models, which helps us to narrow down when the tool was built.
