Knife/Multi-tool appreciation thread

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Daily carry is my Kershaw. I have to go in and out of court so I need something I can take off quick and leave in the car.

On weekends I have a SOG multi tool.

I really love the SOG. Very high quality. Really sturdy. I bought it for my Alaska trip last year and have stuck with it.

I carry one of these every day. It's a nice, light knife and it stays sharp.

These are my knives. The 3 that I'm really fond of are the middle 3. The one with the leather sheath was a BDay present and is insanely sharp. On the left of that is a Mora 2000, not very sharp but a great "pry around and don't care about damage" knife. Next to that is a Fällkniven S1. Great all-round knife.

 

In terms of multitools, I'm kinda split between Leatherman and Victorinox. I've had one Leatherman before and it was good, and I've also heard great things about the Victorinox Spirit. Having owned several Victorinox pocket knives before, I know that they are top notch. The only thing that annoys me a bit is that it seems that If you buy the whole "kit"(tool, bit-set etc) I tink only the tool itself fits in the sheath. If that's the case I need a separate pouch for that. 

 

 

As for ,my EDC knife, I need to get a new one as one of the screws broke(it was a pretty cheap Chinese knife). Problem is that knives are SUPER restricted here, so unless you import it directly from overseas, there's no luck(unless you want to pay a 50% markup in a Chinese "tactical store")

Is that the "onion" or the bigger brother?

I carry a smallish Gerber daily in dress clothes, but in jeans/uniform I have a Gerber 600 multi with M4 tear down tools (I'm in the ARNG)

This one is called the Leek. I think that all the knives in that series have onion-themed names (being designed by Ken Onion). There's also a Chive and a Scallion, IIRC.

I own way too many knives. This is the one I carry most of the time, as evidenced by its general grubbiness.

Very nice. It's a real shame kids can't even carry a pocket knife to school anymore. A whole generation growing up knowing nothing about basic tools. I carried a Swiss Army knife to school everyday for a decade and somehow managed not to kill anybody.

Hi! This is my first post, so I hope I'm not breaking any etiquette by jumping right in to the thread...

 

I made this little neck knife the other day (my first) thought you guys might like it.

 

 

 

I think I shall only be hanging in around my neck when going out walking etc. For everyday use I carry a Victorinox "hunter", and wouldn't leave the house without it.

It's funny you mention kids of today, as I'm making another "luxury" version shortly for my son's 18 birthday...

 

Which ties in with what brought me to this forum, seeking ideas for 18 year old's presents...so I guess I should saunter off and post my first new thread!

I like this Kershaw:


Micarta scales, brass liners, VG-10 blade, slim, nice overall size without looking too "scary"

This one is my daily (briefcase) carry.  It's so pretty even the ladies like it:
