    Mine is still in perfect shape, and the leather holster was kept in mint condition. I like the mix of tools and I've never minded that there's no outside access. It lacks a few tools but I keep a SAK Classic on my keyring which rounds it out nicely, giving me 20 different tools with no overlap.

    I've never felt the need to upgrade really.

    Nothing wrong with the PST. I still carry the SideClip (my favorite). It lacks the file and awl of the PST, but has (duh) a pocket clip. Picked up a couple of PSTs a while back for modifying and parts. One of these days, I'm going to replace the knife on the SideClippy with the PST file.

    Yep. Still have (and carry in my laptop bag --- quit keeping it in my pocket 'cause I got tired of it wearing holes in my pants) one I bought to replace my original which was stolen. Got a second in my Father's estate, and keep it as a backup in my field quiver. Gave them as gifts to everyone in my wedding party, and then had to get another to give as a Christmas present to my Father-in-law 'cause he was bummed not to get one.

    I've still carry mine. Tried other brands and newer leatherman versions but always come back to the original PST. To me it always seemed very slim for what it had available, compared to others at least.

    I don't have a PST but I often carry a SOG Pocket Power Plier, which is very similar... if I had a PST I'd rock it, but the search is half the fun for me so I'm not in a rush to find one online :)

    I have one but it stays in one of my cars. I wouldn't EDC one since it isn'r small enough to compensate for what it lacks over modern MT's. Non-locking tools being a big part of that.

    I EDC a Leatherman KICK, which is a more modern PST in my opinion. It lacks the awl and file, but adds a plastic line to the handle insides to make it MUCH more comfortable to use the pliers.

    While I *really* would love to have a version with a file in it, I love my KICK and I feel naked without it. I bought as a beater just to use until I could afford a WAVE, but I quickly realized that it was perfect just the way it was. I've carried it nearly every day for the last 10 years and now consider it to be an underrated classic.

    I loved my PST and beat the ever loving heck out of it for years. It's been retired in honor; in that size/weight class I prefer to carry my Rave, or Signal.
