Custom SAK
show user profile  nm8r
Anyone else here into Swiss Army Knives?
I don't carry my Chris Reeve Sebenza all the time here in NYC anymore but I had a custom Super Tinker SAK with titanium scales made for EDC (Every day carry).

I've got a few buck knives, and a decent multi-tool (a gerber diesel, I think it is) but I don't carry any of them with me every day.

I do, however, carry my keys in a home-made pocket-knife type setup. -

Well.. It's not a Swiss army knife, but I carry this around with me usually (use it for everything from field dressing a deer to cutting up an apple... yes, I clean it.)-

and I carry this around in my Car/Jeep-

In case, you know, I need to whittle some wood or something...

When my brother and I lived together a year or so ago (bachelor life), we had that one big buck knife in the house as our only knife. Used it for everything cooking related (more than a few people might of thought we were a bit interesting when we pulled it out to cut a pizza).

Hah, I've cut a pizza with my buck knife too :D

So since we're talking about knives, what do yall do to keep yours sharp? I never really sharpen mine, any time one of mine gets horribly dull, I take it to a cutlary place to get it sharpened, I should probably pick up some stones and sharpen them myself. What do yall do? -

I have a big wet stone. Probably don't sharpen it like a pro, but well enough.

Hah, yea I know everyone uses paper slicing to see how sharp their knife is, but I don't usually require that my knife be razor sharp, I tend to abuse my tools. If I need a razor, I grab a razor blade, not a knife. :D -

I have different grit Japanese whetstones but only use them on specific knives especially carbon steel ones. Most of the time and depending on the edge grind of the knife, I will either use a Spyderco Sharpmaker or a Worksharp Ken Onion blade grinder. Sometimes I just use sandpaper for field sharpening. I've been using one old model of my Spyderco Sharpmaker for almost 30 years now.
I have a couple of Swamp Rat knives and Gransfors Bruks axes that I keep razor sharp.

Really good knives don't need to be sharpened (speaking with regard to chef/kitchen knives). Provided they're used properly and not to cut things they're not meant to cut! :)

Post some pics of your Blenheim Forge when you get it. I love Damascus steel knives.
I really like Bob Kramer's work or Autine / John Neeman knives but I decided to get a couple of his axes first.

That SAK is a beauty!

Thanks for that link Spoon. They look great.

Yeah, I love Victorionix knives. I've had a few, and many other knives over the years. My favourite is the Victorionix Camping, which I got in 1976 from my dad. It's the quintessential Swiss Army Knife, although mine is quite bashed up.

I have to admit, my all-time favourite is the Leatherman Wave multi-tool because it's so useful and is really well built. I use it pretty much every day.
