Benner's collection of multi's, SAK's and knives.
« on: January 02, 2008, 05:25:20 PM »
As I have just received the Gerber I was waiting for I thought I would finally take my collection pictures that I had promised.  I have had to use the wifes phone again to take the pictures as my camera is still out of action so I apologise for the low quality photo's.

First up is the picture of my collection before I found multitool.org...


Pictured is my trusty old PST and my Victorinox Mechanic.  This was 4.5 months ago when I was a normal person.

This is my collection now just 4.5 months later...


As you can see my collection has grown slightly.  :D  Let this be a warning to all you newbies out there!  This forum is guaranteed to empty your wallets.  :D

Pictured above starting at the top left hand side and working down and then on the right and working down are the following;

Douk Douk,
Leatherman KF4,
Marttiini Lumberjack,
Gerber Clutch,
'66 Wenger SI,
Frog tool,
Victorinox Mechanic,
Swisschamp,
Original Leatherman Wave,
Gerber Multiplier,
Leatherman PST,
Early rivited PST,
Gerber Shortcut,
Wenger Tahara bone scaled penknife,
Gerber Solstice,
Leatherman original Supertool,
Swisstool X,
Leatherman Pulse.

Not pictured;

Swiss Tech Utili-key,
Classic SD
OH Trekker
Gerber MPT (BO)
Cold Steel Canadian belt knife
Micarta scaled Grohmann #1
"Technogolfer" SAK (custom)
Victorinox Spartan
Spyderco Pride
Up-to-date list on reply 28

This is not a huge collection by any means, but it is a good start and I have a huge list of tools to add to it.

Nice collection! Good to see its grown so much!

Early Gerber (MP600??),

Its probably called a "Multiplier", i have a needle-nose version that looks identical and that came in packaging that called it that.

I really need to buy a few more tools with my christmas money, its just deciding what to get!

There used to be a Powerlock but I just didn't get on with it.  I do intend on getting a powerassist though.  I have been looking forward to that for a while now.

Well I am not sure what is necessarily next, but I am thinking along the lines of a Powerassist or a Wenger Swissgrip.  But saying that, if any good deals come up in the mean time I would consider them.  :D

I've been wanting to get a Douk Douk...what kind of steel are they?  How thick are the blades?

The blade is carbon steel and is pretty sharp actually.  The blade at it's thickest part is a shade over 2mm thick and goes down to a fine point.  The snap is pretty good as well.  The knife is very "basic" though.  I can't say it is very aesthetically pleasing.

I got mine from Marc at EDC depot for a pretty good price;

That one is the smaller one of the 2.  He does stock the larger ones as well.

The Pulse is (In essence) a locking PST II?

How do you like it?

Whatta 'bout the Multiplier?

The pulse has never really been on my list, but a (blunt nose) multiplier features around #7

The Pulse is pretty much a locking PST II and it feels a very solid tool.  The rolled edges make it very comfortable to use and the scissors and the diamond file are great.  I am not too keen on the locking mechanism though.  It does work, but I find it very difficult to release.  Also, because the blade locks it is also illegal for me to EDC so I still tend to carry my PST more.

I am really fond of the multiplier.  I like the flick out pliers and the tool selection really suits me and as it is an older one, the blades don't lock either so I can EDC it.

Are they really that strict on the laws o'er there (off-topic - do you still have chimney sweeps?)

Our laws be reasonably similar on paper, but I ain't never been called up on a locker.

(though front page local news of the second stabbing since new years or some such put me in fear of, well, fear that will deprive me of, I won't say my "rights", but the freedom I enjoy - it makes one tempted to be a vigilante, beating the snot out of drunken teenagers, but I hardly see how that will improve anything, other than that the papers can say "Crowbar wielding psychopath" instead of "Drunk teen violence" )

Our laws be reasonably similar on paper, but I ain't never been called up on a locker.

(though front page local news of the second (fatal?) stabbing since new years or some such put me in fear of, well, fear that will deprive me of, I won't say my "rights", but the freedom I enjoy - it makes one tempted to be a vigilante, beating the snot out of drunken teenagers, but I hardly see how that will improve anything, other than that the papers can say "Crowbar wielding psychopath" instead of "Drunk teen violence" )

I have never been stopped for anything to be honest and I would never wave a knife or multi around to try and attract any unwanted attention.  I do like to stay on the right side of the law when it comes to these things.  I am a strong believer in Sod's law and I just know that if I was to carry a locking blade without any good reason I would be randomly searched and caught. Also, my job requires me to have a clean CRB check (police records check) so I need to keep clean in order to keep my job.

Oh, and yes there are still chimney sweeps but they are very uncommon.  :D

He's great isn't he? He's a real piece of work.

The sad thing is he's like a lot of the people I knew growing up. The only difference was they didn't look like a male prostitute :P

Hard to believe I had about 25 tools when I started this place.  Now I probably have that on my desk alone!
