For me a Surge is always in my pack since it works great for flipping food on the grill, picking up hot pots or pans, and has even been put to use repairing a few things (bending tent poles, untying knots, etc) on the trail.
- Same with screwdrivers - maybe for fixing gear? If so, a bit driver might be the way as I already have the LM bit kit and bit driver extender.
- Knife. I'm thinking of two blades - a bigger one for working with wood etc and a smaller one for... smaller stuff
How about a Victorinox Camper, Farmer, or Forester?
Quote from: nate j on May 18, 2014, 05:45:10 AMHow about a Victorinox Camper, Farmer, or Forester?I know nothing about SAKs so have checked those ones out (if I decide against pliers):Camper - like, although I don't need a corkscrew - unless I could put something else in there. The Hiker (funnily enough) is more like it...Farmer - only one blade, and is the awl OK in that position compared to ones in the middle?Forester - only one blade, has corkscrew, BUT I do like the shape and larger size - I may look at others in this style (eg Trailmaster/Trekker)...Do the blades and saws lock on all of these?
In the 84/85/91mm category I prefer Vic for the better tools and ergonomy.In the larger 111/120mm category I prefer the Wengers for their larger blade, larger saw and their better and safer unlocking mechanism.
The Wenger Ranger 58 is a great knife for Hunting/Camping. no complaints at all
As Nate said, it does go a lot with what else you have and what you really want to do. Personally I go with a SAK for the most part as it can be a stand alone tool. But then again many things can be like that with a little ingenuityjust don't forget...
Good to hear you got yourself sorted out with something.
