Edc normal oho knife with a sak?
« on: November 08, 2018, 01:40:43 AM »
I've had my eye on this nice boker one hand assist knife. On the edc boards people like to carry a normal knife along with a leatherman or some multitool. With your experience, does the swiss army knife make carrying a regular blade redundant? I'm fleshing out my edc systems and I'm wondering whether or not to get this boker. Thanks!

I don't believe that carrying a 'regular folding knife' along with the SAK is redundant. There are a lot of things that a good folding knife (most today are locking blades) can do easier or safer than what you can with SAK. JMTC

My OHOs are also SAKs
(yes I know there are a few 2HO in the photo, but all have locking blades)

Yes there is a slight redundancy.  But this is MTO.  Plenty of members here carry 2 or more knives/SAK/MT on them every day.
So what?  If you want that knife, go ahead and buy it.  And pair it with whatever you want.

My daily carry is usually a SAK and pliers based tool and a single blade knife.  Reason being the single blade knife takes most of the abuse as far as cutting goes and I save the blades in the SAK for more delicate or precise work and it is easier than getting a blade open out of the pliers based tool.  Some people even forego the standard single blade knife for a small box cutter such as the Gerber EAB because with their replaceable blades they are always going to be sharp. :cheers:

 :iagree: :like: I stand corrected. You can be redundant and still carry only SAKs. Sorry my brain wasn't even thinking about those newer SAKs when I responded. I was thinking along the lines of a SwissChamp or Hiker, as those are the ones I own. But, like others have mentioned, if you like the combinations carry everything you want.

Does it have to have OHO? I find two hand opening perfectly adequate 99.99% of the time. If you can really only use one hand most of the time, maybe a fixed blade is better. There's no pivot to get gunged up and stiff either.

OHO is a comparatively recent feature - certainly in SAKs. One wonders how people coped in the days of THO only. :think:

Between this and that.

Carrying a secondary knife is done by many who also carry a SAK.  While redundant there is a place for a dedicated blade IMO.  If you are using your knife a lot a SAK blade wont cut it ( literally ) as the soft steel will dull faster than a blade with higher end steel.  Maybe you need or want more blade?  Maybe you want easier deployment?  For everyday things a SAK is perfect.

Whatever works for you. If you can accomplish everything you need to do with a SAK, fine. If you need a OHO knife some times, fine. If you don't need a OHO knife but want to carry one, fine.

If I'm carrying a OHO folder, I'll often have a Swiss knife or traditional pocket knife too, which saves me opening the larger knife in front of people who may be concerned about my intentions. A few days ago, I used a Swiss knife in the town centre, and nobody batted an eyelid. A modern folder in the same setting may have attracted unwanted attention.

I always carry a Spyderco Ladybug Hawkbill with my SAK, and it shares a watch pocket with a small SAK (74mm and below) or a small gentleman's type folder, those of course I have if I need to cut something in the open. Cuts stuff knives twice it size often struggle with, and good for self defense in that it's got that hawkbill blade, is serrated, and OHO.

I've yet to find a cutting task my SAK couldn't handle. I work in small electronics R&D lab in a semi urbanised forest (I am quite serious, there is forest all over the place in my country   :D) so I never had to skin a mammoth or something similar but still. Sure, there are things that could be done faster with a locking folder but the bigger footprint of such knife is not worth it if your primary duty in life is not cutting stuff.  :D

I have a SAK as part of my base EDC (usually Midnite Manager, Executive/Director). Some times I carry a larger model (Sportsman, Climber, Compact, Spartan). When I do, I don't awlways carry another knife.

If I just have the smaller SAKs, I tend to carry another larger blade knife, for food prep. These tend to be more traditional, only occasionaly do I carry a OHO.

In addition to a SAK, I like to carry a Spyderco, Benchmade or whatever for fast deployment.  There might be some emergency to deal with - like me having to open a letter or package of bacon.

Not weird at all. Sometimes you've got one hand buried deep into a project, or holding something in place, and being able to flick open a "normal" knife is just plain handy.

Normally I'm complimenting the SAK of the day with one of my old first generation Spyperco Enduras.  It's good for more serious tasks or just when I don't have two hands free.  I'll carry the serrated one if the day might need it.

I never intended on this to happen, but I do carry a OHO alongside my SAK.
My Handyman is a trusty compagnion for a long time, but sometimes you need to get a knife out quick or only have one hand available. So when I started to carry a (fake) Small Sebenza to see what the fuss was all about it stuck witch me and is part of my EDC for about five(?) years now.
I intended to get a real Chris Reeve Knives Small Sebenza but I got a girlfriend instead and I just can't justify €400,- on a knife as easily as she can on a €600,- carpet.  :facepalm:

Below is not my EDC, but the Handyman (black) and the Smabenze (as I call it) are.

Yes it is. It feels awesome in hand. The titanium is pretty great. Under the hood however you get what you pay for. This is not a CRK by any means. The jimping on the back of the knife is poor, the framelock is starting to fail and the washers are poorly made and I had to polish the rough edges off myself. I bought it from a Chinese website to see how a Sebenza would handle as 'it's the only knife you'll ever need' and it's supposed to be a working knife.
And you know what, it is. The ergonomics are fantastic and the titanium has a very nice feel. The blade shape is very nice as well.
Initially I intended to buy a real one, but life happened and now it's too much. The Smabenza has won a place in my heart however and has turned me on to single bladed folders.

I think a large majority of the SAK owners are also carrying a single blade folders for serious business. The SAK’s are for the handyman side or support side of our daily lives.

While the price for a Sebenza is steep I also think if this is the ONE and done knife the price is non issue  :dunno:.  When you total up all the knives we buy over time to try to find the ONE we spend quite a few dollars over time just trying.  If you've found the one knife that does it all and will be carried and carried and carried for years on end then.......... ? 

I'm costing this knife out over say, 5 years, 10 years.  Certainly many have spend that much in gear over 5 years.  I wish I found my ONE and done anything.  Truth is many would still buy and try other knives  :facepalm:.  I would like to hear the Captains thoughts.  I remember when he got his Sebenza. 

Any Sebenza owners want to chime in?

Every day.

My CRKT M-16 is my folding paring knife, and I have no problem tossing it's all metal self in the dishwasher. My Rebar or Compact... no. Just no.

Need to sharpen it. Really don't want to cut myself with it- it's used to cut cheese pretty much daily. I don't think I want that culture in a cut. :P

Might be true for members of this forum, but I very much doubt it among the general population of SAK owners.

What is the "serious business" that you are doing that renders SAK steel instantly dull?

 :think: Certainly here and on other forums we will tend to have a few choices including a SAK.  I think the general SAK owner wouldn't surprise me.  Really hard to judge what percent would have a secondary blade of some kind.  Might not be a dedicated one might be a MT or even a slippy.   Not quite what the original topic was about tho.
