    My most valuable tool is probably my string winder/ clipper/ peg puller.
    I can get by without most other tools. I could get by without that too but it makes life a lot easier.

    My Explorer model Swiss Army knife. I've used them since 1974, and am currently using #6. I still have #4 and 5, but they're pretty worn out and mostly retired. My daughter borrowed #3 when it was new and left it in a diner. She paid for #4.

    It's not the largest model, but it has all the right stuff for what I need as a pocket tool. I'm so familiar with them that buying a new one is as much habit as anything, but I do own a Victorinox multi-tool similar to a Leatherman, and seldom use it. The knife is lighter and does most of what I need.

    A local boot repair shop made my current belt case, which has a loop for holding a Victorinox steel alongside the knife. The steel comes in very handy, and I strop the knife blade quite often with it.

    The Victorinox cases never last for more than a year or so, but I've had some American knife company cases that were almost as good as the one I have now.
    regards,
    stanger
