I know I'm not the only one on here that likes the 65mm line so let's see what you have.

The Pocket Tool Chest was next on my list of SAKs to get but since I'm flying a bit for work now I'm thinking about an Air Traveler which I could pair with my IDL T5. The only problem with this pairing is that it lacks a bottle opener and since I often bring a 6 pack back to my hotel room that is a bummer. But then I can open a beer with just about anything so not a big deal. But I'm usually tired and wouldn't mind the convenience of having a bottle opener.  So now I'm back to the Pocket Tool Chest or maybe both :whistle:

There are a variety of key chain bottle openers out there, generally for only a few bucks.

That's a good point.  I always kind of wanted a Brewzer but it just didn't make sense. Now it does, strange how that happens :whistle:

I have several Pocket Tool Chests.  I like to mod the screwdriver into a proper one, like this.

All sorts of models, including black Lady Executive w/ Interlock (move nail file to 90* to unlock blade); Executive (four blades w/ blunt blade and nail file/rare); Optitool (later Air Traveler) (camo, long thin screwdriver in place of blade); Nail Clip (trans blue).

I've never seen or heard of the tool combo on that blunt tip one. Do you know what it's called?

None of those are easy to find models. Very cool! :like:

Gorgeous display of true beauties in here!

I really loved carrying the 65mm models in my month 4 of "different SAK every day"!

Here are those I carried in chronological order along with the conclusions I posted at the end of that month.



- the Alox ones are extremely easy to carry, super thin and light but easy to use as you get a bit of a better grip on them than on Vic's 58mm Alox.
- the Evo scales add a lot of bulk and dont really help that much. Looks are good but the Alox looks even better.
- I really love the Macao and Lithos series; must get more Lithos but that blue is already gorgeous! My favorite Macao is the 700 even though they're all awesome. I was exited to get Vic De Luxe series knives but they don't look half as good as these!
- I've always preferred the mechanism of the Wenger scissors and I confirm: they're much better and their serrations make them cut much better over time than their vic counterparts
- much better choice of colors than Vic (excluding special and limited editions)


And I'll take this opportunity to welcome Ptisuisse ( and his french flag :P ) to the fold!

That's a precious piece right there! Welcome to MTo  :cheers:
