I agree with solventdonkey..EDITED
on 22 September 2009
Have to agree with the above reviewer, I'm currently looking at my 4 year old legend which has been used every day of those 4 years and I regard it as indespensible! For the record, the tool functions more or less as it did when it was new, scissors and cutters are still sharp, screwdrivers are undamaged and plier's jaws and teeth are as new. I've lost the top 2mm of the blade (through miss-use) and the all but one of the stick-on rubber patches has come off, oh and the nylon case is a bit shabby, but that's it! A brilliant product and, in my opinion, better than the Leathermans that were around some seven years ago when I bought my first one (had it stolen).
EDIT Oct 2012 - with the above comments in mind I started to look round for a replacement for my Legend and I quite fancied the Leatherman 300 but as a last chance, considering the 25 year Guarentee, I phoned up Gerber's Uk distributer (actually Silva the compass people in Scotland) and asked about a replacement (feeling really that just about all the problems were fair wear and tear on a tool I'd used every day for best part of 8 years). The nice lady said that if I'd broken the blade through mis use for example then the guarentee wouldn't cover it but when I explained that the scissor spring had broken and all the rubber grips had fallen off she said it would be no problem. I packed it up, sent it back and today took delivery of my brand new Legend and belt pouch! Beat that!
