You're bad brother, lol.
Tourist and Cadet.
One of these is the best small Victorinox. The other one comes in alox...
I've given away like half a dozen SAKs in the last month to random people and was feeling good about some extra/rarely used knives going to people to be used.
Then I walked into the house this morning with a Tinker I've kept at work (my longest owned folder) and a Classic on the keys to my wife's car.
As I'm emptying my pockets I notice a SAK laying in the floor. And a couple on the coffee table. And two more in the catch all basket on my desk...
Some of these are in the living room as a result of my kid going back to school and cleaning out a bag. And I had to get all the sharp stuff out of my car for her to use recently.
I've also got a Classic I left at work. And a Huntsman in my wife's car. And a Hiker that I'm pretty sure is in my desk but I didn't bother looking for...
They're just so useful and so inexpensive. I don't think there's a better cost vs utility value in the knife world.
That’s a great obsession to have lol, how do you like those pocket clips?
Generally it's the only way I'll currently carry a SAK. The P7 and similar clips keep them out of the bottom of my pocket and are low profile enough that they don't draw attention. On a smaller knife like the Tourist I will actually sometimes forget I have it when hung from a P7 against the seam of a pocket.
Exactly. Best SAK carry method ever.
Anyone still use a Swiss Champ?
I do. The pliers are perfect nose hair pullers. The small flat head screwdriver is perfect for eyeglass repairs. It sits on my dresser. I don’t carry it.
Well I’m not the only one
I think the widest SAK I've ever owned was the Ranger. The file was useful, but it was a lot to haul around without a belt sheath and I had/have no interest in that.
I like the "idea" of carrying it, but the reality is it's just too big.
coffee on the trail
I finally realized why so many like the Electrician. And then I realized that it doesn't come with a keyring. Why?
Any easy mod or workaround for that?
Not sure of the model BUT found this one today. Possibly a “Marine Soldier” or a “pioneer 2223” model.
