    I have 2 Gerber MP600 tools I actually really life and they have become my user multitools. I (of course) never use the lanyard hole tool. Is there a place I can buy replacement Gerber tools for dirt cheap (the ones on eBay are about as much as a used MP600).

    I considered grinding the tang of a jigsaw blade down to match the lock geometry. Anyone done this?

    I've seen that done, should work fine if the thickness matches what it's replacing.

    If you do that, please post some pictures.

    I have two Gerber Mp600 tools that I have modified. I did a lot of swapping around before I came up with what works for me. The lanyard ring was one of the things on my list to change. They are the same thickness as the small screwdriver and the awl that you sometimes find on older MT.

    I have seen used Gerbers for much less money than your claim but not all the time. Just be patient.

    One option would be to replace the lanyard ring with some small washers but that does not give you a useable tool. Another would be to modify a small screwdriver into an awl.

    For my next project, I am considering the addition of Gerber's detachable saw blade to an MP400. This would give me the same basic toolset as I have on my 600s. Just a little lighter and shorter.

    I might have some leftover parts. How can I reach you?
