    They really are the scourge of society.

    Got mine used. Still expensive to run... Meh. I'm not the one following the carnage I cause on site. Also, electricians and air con guys always use side cutters, and we are usually the ones following them in and chopping our hands to pieces on the millions of ties they use. The lock always coincides with where you naturally place a hand or knee...

    To be truthful, knives are not the best for cable ties. Get a pair of sidecutters instead if you deal with a lot of them.

    Yep, it's technically a fixed blade. I carry mine every day at work, along with a lock knife, which falls under reasonable excuse. I go to the shops at lunchtime with them in my pocket, never had an issue. When I was a cop I wasn't just gripping people and searching for knives. You could carry an 'illegal' one every day, and as long as you aren't being stupid in a public place, you'll be fine. Bear in mind if you commit a motoring offence and it's in view, your car is a public place in the eyes of the law...

    There is a box to tick if you want your old tool back. Call them and see if they will swap the frame. Can't hurt to ask!

    Yep, sorry! Not nagging, just saying how it's a really great service. I was worried there wod be a raft of questions like "have you used this to lift up a car?" but there were no dramas 😊

    Just had brilliant customer from leatherman/Whitby knives. I had a MUT which somehow managed to bend a springy bit inside (technical term) and a squirt with a broken scissor spring. Sent them in to whitby (UK leatherman warranty people) and 9 days later got 2 brand new tools in the post. No queries/questions, they just replaced them with new ones. Both of mine were well used and several years old. Really happy! @Twitch, get yours done. It only cost a few quid to send them tracked to make sure they got there!

    Just have a competitive stink-off. See who can become the most pungent before the supply is fixed.

    I drove down the motorway before and saw a proper replica of the a team van. Same model and everything. This makes me happy!

    I opened my car passenger window this morning. Stiraght down and straight back up, to wipe off the surface water. In those few seconds, a bird managed to *suitcase* through it. Imaging the minute odds of that happening through a gap that viewed from above is around 40mm wide. Hell of a shot. And I'm annoyed. Stupid birds.
