I have a couple of them:
console in the vehicle; toolbox; gig bag; and keychain.
They're very handy.
If I am feeling risque, I carry this:
Opinels look nice on paper but, I have never seen one in person...
Carried them for a long time , but I kept breaking the plastic handles , so I gave up . My preference is for the Wengers because I like their scissors spring mechanism better than the Victorinox . Ok , here we go on this subject . Who here is aware of the fact that there are left handed Swiss Army Knives ? This is a real thing . Certain things like the scissors are made for a lefty . The best part is the corkscrews . They are lefty . Yes , they turn the other way . I always loved handing my knife to some unknowing righty to pull a cork . Dark fun indeed .
Haha. I didn't know that.
The last time I bought a Swiss Army knife (a tiny Rally that I mentioned earlier), one of my primary specifications was "no corkscrew". I'd rather punch the cork into the bottle with a dirty stick than use one of those again.
I've got a blue one with the Star of David on the handle. Someone once asked me... Are you Jewish? No I replied, I'm David.
Forgot I had this guy, waiting for new scales. I think I planned to make some..
The originals had a cool pen that just slid partway out of the knife, letting you use the rest of the knife as the handle.
Everytime I see a thread like this, I think of my Cub Scouts/Boy Scouts days and how a pocketknife was the COOLEST thing on the planet! I remember buying the actual BSA logo/licensed one.
The only Swiss Army knife I have ever owned was a really small one, but it still had scissors, tweezers, toothpick. Too cool!
Now I have NO pocketknife of any kind- but may have to go to Amazon...
Here are my relics..... you can tell by the condition how little use they get....
the multi blade one I found when I moved out of a rental house and checked on top of a wardrobe for anything.... cool, a SAK....
the small silver one was given to me on my birthday by a Swiss guy... we were in Manaus at the time, it got some use up in La Paz...a good chipper....
