Has anyone else seen the new Leatherman knives? There are several models
available. The variations seem to be:

Linerlock w/ assist or Lockback
blade only, w/ carabiner, w/ carabiner + 2 screwdrivers, w/ carabiner + bitdriver
154CM blade or 420 blade

Personally, I think the linerlock with the bitdriver just ROCKS. This may well
become my new work knife.

I just got mine in tonight and it rocks. THe dual blade and bitdriver are all I really need around the house...in the woods... or fighting sandworms on Dune.

I was checking them out in the blisterpacks at Target and they didn't look bad. I would really like to get my hands on one to see if it would be a good EDC. It is smaller than I expected and would have to fit the hand well to work for me (ala Calypso Jr.)

Is it really assisted-open as an option or a Carson-type flipper? It was hard to tell...
