All I know is that the 831102 is what I have and it is called "Leatherman 831102 Super Tool-300 Multitool with a Sheath", and it is the only one I would ever have or want. It is the KING of the Leatherman line, and the best tool you could ever need in any situation. I would not even begin to sell mine for what amazon is asking for it, because I paid $105.00 dollars for mine. Believe me, buy it !!
i did some searching around using google and the leatherman web site and it seems as though the 831103 weighs a bit more than the 831102. the 831103 is 14.7 ounces (according to amazon) and the 831102 is 9.6 ounces (according to the leatherman site.) being only a 5.1 ounce difference in weight, i can't imagine this would be felt when carrying either of these tools versus the other. i hope this helps.
No, it doesn't. I bought the 300 and the drivers and then discovered it doesn't work. My solution was to buy the Charge TTI as well, which uses the drivers, but I seldom use the drivers so the 300 is really useful. You can't own too many Leathermans.
But if you need to use the bits, get the Charge.
If you need a big/full size tool 300 and Surge.. do you need it for heavy work everyday? get 300 is cheaper and lighter then Surge. if just for EDC or want to have the coolest regular size tool you got to get Charge TTI (Not XTi, or alv) as for now theirs no other multi tool in the world that has a S30V knife, plus with the titanium handle.
What did you end up buying? I had an original black Leatherman Supertool and loved it. I had to give it up to the TSA when I forgot and brought it with me on a trip. And they didn't make them anymore when I wanted to get another. I bought a Sog tool from WM and missed my Leatherman ST everytime I used it except for the pliers, the compound gear on the pliers on the Sog was AWESOME.
Take a look at Sog too.
I lost my original Leatherman Supertool and replaced it with a Sog. Similar, but the locks on the blades/tools SUCKED on the Sog, the Leatherman ST they were awesome, but it looks like the new Leatherman Supertool 300 has locks like the Sog now. How well do they LOCK the tool out? I do NOT want a tool that is going to fold on me when I need it most.
It is indeed a leather and nylon sheath. Actually it is a very nice sheath, and allows you to store the tool open or folded. In both situations the fit is snug enough to hold the tool securely, while it maintains enough give to easily release the tool. There is a tiny little front pouch, as well as two small pouches on the sides of the tool. I find that the side pouches are perfect for storing a Fenix LD01 AAA flashlight.
