    I’ve inherited an original Super Tool which has done a lot of work and I’d like to refurbish it a bit.

    The straight knife has snapped off. I sent it off to leatherman but they said they don’t have the blades anymore to suit it because it’s so old. I declined to have it swapped for a Super Tool 300 because it has sentimental value.

    Where can I get a blade to suit it?
    Option B is to find a cheap second hand super tool and take it off that.

    I’m in Australia.

    Option B is going to be the simplest. With a bit of heat to loosen the thread locker, it's not hard to unscrew the pivots. I used to carry the original Super Tool for many years and made up a few custom implements for it. Drill the right size hole in the steel blank, line up an existing blade against the new blank with a pin through the holes, trace the tang shape onto the blank and carefully grind to the line. But nothing I made was hardened like a knife blade. Someone who fixes pocket knives, or a knife maker who makes folding knives would have the right tools and equipment to do the job of making up a new blade
