It's done. I did a last minute swap and replaced the awl with large file. All nicks are perfectly acessible. No regrinding necessary. Donors:Executive: Liner, Tools, SpringsMoneyClip: Scales, SpringPocket Tool Chest: Tools
No, I went for the small blade. I figuered, I have more need for the small blade than the awl (opening packages, non food-related cutting work etc.). The PTC awl is blunt so I would have needed to sharpen it. This is my EDC. Everthing larger than 74mm is too bulky for me nowadays.
After exclusively EDCing this thing for almost 7 months I can safely say: this the island-SAK for me.Almost zero bulk in the pocket and all daily tasks I face can be done with it.
