    I got me a Victorinox Spirit X to see what all the hype is about. But, because I got it through work using some reward points we can earn, it won't be here for a week or two. I want to see how it compares to my Wave, Kick, Blast and PST. Yes, I am a Leatherman fan. Owned the PST since I graduated high school.

    Just got mine today, and I'm impressed. My LMs feel "beefier" but the Vic is more "finished."

    Clicked on this and didn't see any pictures. Panicked, had to read the thread and then realized; You have a week to think up good photo compositions. :D

    I carry my BO everyday everywhere. It has served me well so far. No problems and the craftsmanship is simply perfect IMO

    A review? With my work and pen schedule? lol. As soon as it gets here, I'll get some pics up, unless it arrives while I am at work, then they will wait until I get home. I have been carrying my original Wave for the last couple months and love it. I'm hoping the Vic is as good.

    I work as a salesman. But the company is always having small contests that give the reward points. The site we redeem them doesn't have a lot of EDC type items, but there is a decent selection of Victorinox and Leatherman items. I got my Kick that way last year. Got the boys a couple XBOX 360 games for Christmas and the wife a Baby-G watch. Still watching for a Seiko Monster to show up on the site.

    Sales jobs aren't easy but with the right company the reward is worth it as in your case.

    It's not bad. Used to driving or manual labor type jobs. This was offered when I was between jobs and thought I would give it a chance. Been with the company 2 1/2 years so far.

    So, if it is as good as everyone says, where is the best place for the bit kits and which Skinth fits it the best with the bit kit?

    L shield. I think the M shield is almost the same just not as wide. Or something :unsure:

    Well that's good. In this economy just about any job is better than no job.

    Yes it is. Just wish it wasn't strictly commission. I work too many hours for what I make.

    Well, here it is. Sorry, cell phone pic and early morning sun through window for lighting. So far, the feel in hand is great. Opens and closes smoothly like the jaws are on bearings. And its shiny. We'll have to carry it a few days to see how the every day use comes into play. I know the original Wave I have been carrying gets used almost daily. I really like the Wave's blade layout. I quit carrying a lock back. Might need to start carrying one again.

    Ok, been carrying it and using it for about a week now. Love that all the tools lock open. Love how smoothly the jaws open and close. I might have to retire my other multi tools. Well, that might be going too far seeing I just wet formed a KSF sheath to my wave.

    This is exactly what I think of mine. Only had it for a few days, but I love it. :)
