It's Victorinox for me. After some ecoline months with Camper and some suit time with Tourist, I'm back to Farmer. I'm so rural, yeeehaw!!! :-D
PS: A friend of mine once commented on something I'd just told her and said: "You're a rural gentleman!" I guess that's another reason the Farmer suits me so well LOL.
Leatherman Signal REI exclusive Topographical blade.
I must say the Signal is the first MT I really considered getting. It seems to be really fantastic!!!
Yeah, it’s almost perfect. Missing: tweezers.
I was hiking with it and my kid hit a cactus. They can fit them in a keychain tool, they should find a spot on these to have them.
Get yourself an Uncle Bill's Sliver gripper tweezer. They come with a holder that fits on a keychain. Amazon sells them in a two-pack for less than $10. I have one in every FAK, including an Altoid's 'boo-boo' kit in my pocket. Couple it with a Fresnel type magnifier (business card size) to ride in your wallet just in case you have a small splinter that's hard to see and you're all set!

Ouch, that sucks. You're right they could've fit those somewhere ...
I have a set. On my other keychain of course.
I had tweezers in the car but I just noticed the deficiency when I needed them.
Inspired by your post, I looked them up on the big river site, but was disturbed by some of the customer comments. If what I read was true, a formerly great product has been lately transformed into junk status. Almost every positive review was from long time owners, and most of the negative were from formerly big fans who claim the new ones are poorly made. This sort of thing has happened to other good products, like IDL multi-tools, who went from US made to China. I don't know what to think.
I see what you mean. The customer comments there are hard to figure. On the one hand, I still see about 89% at 3 stars or higher. On the other hand, at 1 or 2 stars, a lot of comments about not the same product. Some are simply complaining about the change of packaging from the clip that allowed keychain carry to the tubes (?); but still a lot complaining that the tips are no longer as fine or properly aligned as in the past, etc. I've learned to usually look at the negative reviews also, especially where people actually enter explanations.
I wonder if we were to look at comments on other websites if the same pattern would be there. Or if it was possible to determine how many of the negative ones were purchased via 3rd party sellers rather than Amazon. Not that I suggest you or I have the time to invest in such research... just that I long ago stopped going through most 3rd party sellers for a myriad of reasons having to do with quality, customer support, and even authenticity of the products!
Sigh. Glad I don't need any right now; I might take a look at REI next time I wander in to see what they have!
