I attach Fire steel toggles to all my SAK's.  Sometimes when I pocket carry I'll attach a belt lanyard which comes in really handy on a boat.

Jeep the SAK of the auto world or is it SAK the Jeep of the Knife world?

I used to have a persimmon tree in my yard, before that I had no idea either, I never saw one at the market. The dragons would come and raid the place when they got ripe and set to vomiting in the street all night, until someone got the idea to market the stuff.

I digress, nice lanyards Gene.  :tu:

I just googled altavistaed persimmon. You are talking about dióspiros!

My father has a couple of trees. We wait until the ants raid them (that's when they're ripe), wash them and scoop them up with a spoon.

We watch them when they begin to ripe. When we see the ants running around near them, before getting inside, it's time to pluck them.

It's like a quality seal.

Down our way we like to scoop them out with a twiglet and eat them like that.

It's a young persons right of passage to defeat a persimmon vomiting Dragon using only a packet of Twiglets (24g bag only), and steal the remaining persimmons to share among the family and village. The villagers then join in the mocking of the Dragon and throw last seasons Gobblers at it until it flies away. A party is then held for the youths who passed the rite and they are awarded a garland made from the harvested persimmon flowers.

We used to do that hereabouts too, but since the spew has become such a delicacy, the lazy young people eat frozen barf lollys with twiglet handles whilst they play their dragon slaying video games. It's just not the same anymore.  :D

I add lanyards of some type to most of my users. I use leather, paracord, and/or very small Robline. Often I use one that I've pre-made that I can add/subtract for the situation.

Here are some examples that were lying close by for the picture...

Some nice ones there Gene and much more manageable than some I saw on Amazon.
I did also do some looking on ebay for lanyard beads per a suggestion on this thread and found some really cool ones.
They have solid brass, or nickel silver alloy for example
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nickel-Silver-Lanyard-Beads-for-Paracord-Leather-Cords-Shipped-From-USA/201997860800?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D45726%26meid%3D56a51eebebfb441d9e6458dddd6f9b33%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D201972133607&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851

I might have to get some paracord on my own and add one of these or some fire steels like Gene did. Seems a cool little hobby and a nice way to customize your SAK.

I like a leather or paracord lanyard. There are some really sweet and cheap beads on ebay - I got a Tibetan silver dragons head for £1.50 and will be ordering some more soon. With orange paracord it looks like the dragon is breathing fire!:

That one does look cool magentus!

Persimmons are one thing, kaki is quite another, especially in Hungary.  :-\

well it seems that Kaki is the most common variety of Persimmon around.
So in my country 90% of those Persimmons are Diospyros kaki, thus the Kaki name I guess, as I've never seen another variety of that fruit in person here.
