    Why no Victorinox Steel Upgrade?

    You know you forced me to re-read that ... hahaha! Thank you for pointing that out. It sure is a pretty knife! I am pretty sure if I owned it I would not be gutting deer with it though. ;^)

    Why no Victorinox Steel Upgrade?

    Currently I do not have any knives with special upgraded steel, that is not to say I won't someday. I have a jar that gets my pocket change at the end of every day and when it gets full I think I am going to acquire a Leek composite blade knife. Not so much that I have a need for the steel...

    Why no Victorinox Steel Upgrade?

    If it was good enough for Ötzi ... . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ötzi#Tools_and_equipment I am continually amazed by this guy, perhaps because relatives from dad's side of the family came from the same area.

    What did you use your SAK for today?

    I, too, appreciate the bagpipes.

    What did you use your SAK for today?

    There is nothing quite like the sound of live steam going through a whistle or fog horn.

    What did you use your SAK for today?

    The Deluxe Tinker came in handy opening a shipping envelope that contained an Explorer Plus purchased from the online auction house. A nice surprise is the fact that it is in better condition than the photographs led me to believe. It has the latest style glass magnifier to assist these aging...

    What did you use your SAK for today?

    I enlisted the help of the large blade on my Deluxe Tinker to cut up some Bongard's Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Perhaps some Beer Kase Cheese later this afternoon.

    What SAK are ya totin' today?

    Those can key SAKs are really cool gents! Wonderful photographs Dan! When I was a lot younger back in the 1950s and 1960s there were many items on the grocers shelves that needed a can key such as lard, coffee and sardines to name a few. About five months ago I brought something home from the...

    What did you use your SAK for today?

    It must be the mystical qualities of the Swiss Army Knife in red Alox ... in the right hands. :^)

    What SAK are ya totin' today?

    I am glad to see/hear of the wonderful gift from your old friend from Switzerland. Very kind of him and given to the right guy, too. I don't know about the rest of you fellows, but, at a certain time in our lives our old friends list gets pretty sparsely populated by the still living old...

    Broke my small tinker

    W Well, I can not say if you are nuts or not at this time. ;^) The knife I sent in was not purchased by me, but, by an old friend and left for me before he went to the other side. My experience has been that no one even wondered if I was the original purchaser. I suspect that Victorinox...

    Broke my small tinker

    So sorry to hear of your wounded Tinker. There are a couple of us that frequent the Multi-tools & Multi-purpose Knives forum that have sent their Swiss Army Knives in to Victorinox for warranty service in the last few months. Mine was sent in on June 19, 2020 and was back in my possession 21...

    It followed me home (Part 2)

    You may not be wealthy in the same terms as the Rockfellers, but, with all that sharp steel you have you will have a hellofva estate sale! :^)

    Josh-You really are an axe magnet. You found another beauty! Have my eyes gone bad? The helve looks like it is 3½ feet long?

    the rise of the covid19 hook tool

    This good to know, however, as life's clock ticks by and I recognize that I am not as physically strong as i once was and find my balance diminishing I am keeping an eye peeled for any uprisings or riots. Given the wide open spaces of the southern Minnesota prairie with industrialized farming...

    What did you rehang today?

    Yankee Josh "Did you mean an Emerson Stevens? Or a connie?" Josh-The Connie. But, I wouldn't want to damage the label.
