    So this new model has no pictures? The picture posted with this “plea” for help is of the current cs4 model called open sourcerer, right? so we’re supposed to name something for which we have no specifications at all? vapor wearer? blind sider? imagineerer? (Disney might object i suppose)

  9. Gareth Branwyn says:

    @billB,

    It’s a Leatherman Juice CS4, the same model as the one I pointed to, same specs. This is just naming the next “special edition” batch that we’ll have laser-etched.

    You guys are great. Lots of really fun, clever suggestions got submitted. We laughed, we cried, we fell in love.

    We’ll be contacting the person whose suggestion we used and will do a future post revealing the new tool name and the person who submitted it.

    Thanks again, folks!

    6. Container opener ,Corkscrew with assist
    7. Bottle opener
    8. Saw
    9. Awl/punch

    Lets call this Octopussy , Its Trendy Else lets name it NONAGON , in Geometry nonagon a nine-sided polygon , This has technically Nine Arms or tentacles and it is surely a NONA , in other words its very unique in that all other technical numerical prefixes used for systematic names, such as mono-, are derived from Greek http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/nona-
    I am sure JAMES BOND would love to keep this handy along with his other trendy gadgets , So will I too . I am hoping you would like either of the name , NONAGON or Octopussy.

    Cheers
    ROHIT.
