I was carrying a scout knife and used it for everything from slicing bread to fixing the car. But I kept wishing I had a pair of pliers! When Tim came back to the states, he took his "multi-tool" idea, some sketches he made on the trip and got to work. When Tim started on the prototype for this new tool, he estimated it'd take him a month. Instead, it took the next three years to build the prototype he envisioned and filed for a patent.
With the patent application and prototype in hand, he set off to sell his idea. Unfortunately, the companies he approached didn't bite.
For another three and a half years, Tim faced one rejection letter after another. This item is in very good condition. The case shows more wear than the knife itself. The case still feels stiff and solid but does have a few minor blemishes on the exterior.
These unique tools have a long reputation of being built of the finest materials and built to last. The date shown on the inside of the handle is 0793.
