    Howdy all,

    Figured that there should be single thread for showing off and detailing our Leatherman Mods no matter how minor or significant.

    After seeing metropolicity's MUT with scissors, and taking into account my "Sideman", I thought it would be nice to have a single thread for all these mods so that we can easily pass along our ideas and maybe come up with more.


    Have at it fellas!!

    +1 on the subscription. I have a Surge that I love, but really want a MUT as well.

    That is the first Micra I've seen that wouldn't completely p*** me off from getting caught when trying to pull my keyring out of my pocket.

    Wouldn't it be neat if you could order one with the tools you wanted in it?

    If it was outside opening, it would've been golden.

    I changed my Pic on the first page. The Juice can opener to Awl Mod ;D

    I used the can opener once in about the first year I Had my Juice. I use the Awl I cold cut out of it every time I carry it.

    It's got to be almost 5 years old. It's my most carried and used multi tool.[​IMG]

    That's a great idea, I wonder how difficult it would be for Leatherman to make a custom tool shop? Doesn't seem like it would be that hard. Of course, they could charge top dollar for your custom tool, but you'd get exactly what you wanted and they could top it off by laser engraving your name, or whatever you want, on the side. The possibilities are endless.

    I have a Micra that I use for my car and home. This particular Micra was done for a customers toolbox and car.

    Outside opening would be much better. Its a hassle sometimes.

    oh boy! My playground!!

    Lets start off with the Beerplumber, made for my friend The Beerplumber who installs and maintains beer taps. A pair of shear heads (to snip poly tubing) and a tap wrench.

    [​IMG]

    The aforementioned MUT scissors. A pair of Surge scissors adapted and fitted into the pin punch slot of the MUT

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My EDC upgraded Wave, The Tsunami 154cm PE blade, gut hook, and cap crimpers

    [​IMG]

    The GRFXman, a modded Wave for graphic design production. A custom olfa blade holder, a OHO metal bone folder, sharpened bottle opener for making holes, sharpened and notched flat bit driver for opening glue cans.

    [​IMG]

    After trying to get a LM Flair forever, i got fed up and made my own out of a Charge TTi. I call it The Panache, a fork and wine bottle opener.

    [​IMG]

    A modded Core for BBQ called The PitBoss, double awls to form a large fork, a cocktail for, and the file grounded down to spread on goodness.

    [​IMG]

    A modded Surge with ST300 plier heads, I call it The Barrage.

    [​IMG]

    The Barrage has a brother called The BOrrage, a BO version. If you loose closely enough, there is a slot milled in the blade exchanger. This makes it OHO, best mod ever to the Surge.

    [​IMG]

    And finally most epic and ambitious build, The Mjolnirman. A hammered Charge ALX.

    [​IMG]

    Another MTO member helped me and made some awesome G10 scales for it. I had etched the scales with a laser cutter to denote the kind of blade (PE or SE) and it got darkened when he filled in the etching.

    [​IMG]

    Phew, now that i look back, that was a lot of work. Glad I decided to take part and mod MTs this summer for no reason!.
