First Knives and Sentimental Tools...
« on: July 29, 2008, 11:16:22 PM »
Seems like it would be fun to see some pics of people's more meaningful tools, knives, watches, pens, or the like. :)

I'll start with a few of mine...

Here's a pic of the frist knife I bought, sometime around 5th grade. It's just a cheapo branded "sharp". I bought it because a friend of mine and I wanted to take up whittling, though I never was very good at it. Also in the picture is my first MT, a PST my sisters found by the road while they were out sledding. God must have been smiling on me. :D

Here's a "Camper" that my dad owned. He doesn't use knives/tools all that much, but I snagged this one out of some storage so it won't get lost. It makes a nice pair with the other...

The other is an "Imperial" that my Grandpa (dad's dad) carried. He died when I was just in 5th grade, but he's still been one of the biggest inspirations in my life, so I'm glad I had the presence of mind to pick this up when they were going though/getting rid of his stuff. :)

My all-time personal favorite tool, my old beater KF4 that's been around the world (literally) and through a lot of adventures with me.

Actually, this one got it's own thread a while ago... :)

And one more just for fun, my first keychain knife... a cheap Spyderco Ladybug knock-off, though I didn't know that at the time. It was my first time edc-ing some kind of knife/tool. I never looked back. :)

You can see it got it's fair share of use...

Hehe, yeah it wasn't the greatest quality by any stretch... Of course, to it's credit I beat it up pretty good in my youner days. If I remember right, the corkscrew is all buggered up because I used it to rip apart a broken toaster. I can't remember why I was ripping it apart though... :think: :D

Yep, those are the kind of things that carry memories and meaning. My grandpa, though he died before I became an adult, has influence a whole lot of my life as well. :) I'm not quite sure where I'd be without his example... :think:

Anyhow, there's lots of cool stuff to buy, but money can't buy those memories... :)

(Any pics? :D)

This one has a lot of sentimental value, although it is far from my first knive, it is probably the first really decent knive... and I can thank Def for it...

nice thread and shots :cheers:

my first knife was a survial/rambo type I got from a TV ad,
broke the first time I used it! (I was a kid).

My first SAK I gave away, to my friend who lost his (mine was from his father).

all my favorite stuff now is only around 3 years old, nothing really
sentimental ..... yet!

That car knife is pretty unusual.  :)  I like oddities like those.

Me neither. The oldest one I have is from 6-7 years ago, all the ones from childhood/teenage years were lost, sold or traded away for something else. Wish I woulda kept just one.
