it's a classic Spanish navaja.  :cheers:
While waiting for my next bladed friend to arrive and ride in my pocket (but will still take a while as it's been caught by the evil Spanish customs  :facepalm:  so now lots of trouble and paperwork will ensue   :rant:) I'm carrying the closest to it I own, and one of my most carried as of late, the CS Swift.



Thanks Nix and hopefully there won't be (that much) trouble with customs this time!!!  :tu:

worry not! The Rebar takes most things without problem...and it's 30 days after all!
Instead you should be happy and glad that you created such a fun and entertaining thread.  :salute: It's hard to remember a 30 Day Challenge thread that was so active in the LM subforum  :tu:

This is my daily carry & has been for a very long time. The only time it has changed was the 3 weeks my Champ was away at the Vic Spa.

That is an old Buck 422. I got it in an Ebay purchase of TSA knife lot of about 100 knives. It had a broken blade that I re-contoured my self.
Been carrying that one at least 5 years.. That is everyday for 5 years. Even the month I recently spent in the hospital & rehab it was in my pocket.
I will try to get some better photos of it tomorrow & post them.

looks like it could be very light weight without liners, something on the opposite side of the 110.  :tu:
 I'm all for buck designs, but can't get past the weight of (most of) their models.

Here are the picsof the Buck422. As I said the blade may look a little strange because the tip was broken off when I got it. It is very light weight , the Buck name for this series was Bucklite. It coresponds to the Buck 112. The 424 as the mate of the 110.

I had a Kershaw knife of similar design. I broke the tip off that knife--in my younger and more reckless days--and ended up regrinding the tip. Darn if I didn't think the knife worked better after being re-ground and re-sharpened.  :tu:

I have a Buck Ranger (112) now that I really enjoy. Some people think it's a bit heavy for it's size; I think it feels 'solid'. I haven't gotten around to breaking the tip off this one yet.   :whistle:

I really like how the handle looks like horn/wood in color but it's actually plastic.
Seems very well done

as for resharpening and re-tipping, I've found that soft steel, inexpensive blades gain much performance after some thinning and even then they are still easier to sharpen (less steel BTE) and they won't chip like harder, more expensive steels at those thin angles. WIN WIN   :gimme:

It is supposed to be a desert camo look. But looks dont mean much, I have found this to be one tough knife that holds an edge extremely well.

We have a simular place about 1.5 hours south of where I live. I try to visit every couple of years but my body is getting so old that now it would take 4 or 5 trips to stay on my feet long enough to see it.
They have one exhibit that fascinates me, you whisper into a dish shaped ,antenna, I guess you would call it, and a person about 100 feet away in front of another one can hear you perfectly.

Nice load-out today, El Peacent.

 :like:

As you know, I recently got a ST 300. I've been wondering if they should have tried to include scissors in that multitool. I find scissors to be so useful. But...like you... I tend to carry a SAK with scissors in addition to a mutlitool, so maybe Leatherman made a good choice in leaving the scissors out. No one tool is perfect, and probably won't ever be, so we carry tool 'sets', right?

Even Ötzi the iceman carried a few tools like a knife, axe, and crafting implements.

Who can resist the Boker Nano? Especially in orange. Sadly this is the non-locking version, which sucks in the sense that it keeps trying to chop my fingers off. Great design, though!
