Glad to hear Sandvik isn't that hard to sharpen. Barry, I do need to assemble a bit kit for the DIY, especially when I'm using T-27 for Stihl and assorted hex bits often.  I impulse bought one for $1 (all Phillips and flat bits) from a grocery store, but it's not of good quality. You use those bits once, and they wear out right then.

Case Carhartt Mini Trapper.  Also kept the 12 with me, but didn't actually carry it; aside from my room to the kitchen.

The Mini Trapper bit me pretty bad today. Closed the blade on the webbing between my left index finger and thumb, which wasn't bad, until I tore it deeper trying to open the knife off my hand.  It's a short cut (1/4 or less) but deep. I may need to pick up some liquid stitches; but a 1x3" Band-Aid is working fine.  Oh well, one of the drawbacks of a strong spring, I guess. One thing I"ve noticed--I seem to get the webbing of my hand cut while closing a blade right in that area more than any other cut.

Thanks. It's already starting to heal up, a scab has already formed. But I'm sure it will leave a scar.

In part, as a result of yesterday's misfortune, chose something with a bit softer spring, the Camillus Cub Scout. That and it has an awl, which the Wave lacks.

Case LT347 again. Used the spey blade quite a bit peeling oranges--probably my only regular use for that blade.   Still hoping Case either comes out with them in yellow again (I think this was an SFO for use as a promotional item) or uses my suggestion of the same high-viz orange Zytel the fixed blades have.

Camillus 1047 Boy Scout Whittler (a version of the 72 Carpenter's Whittler). My first 72, but not my last. I always think finding one of a particular pattern will stop me from looking, but for some odd reason, I keep looking for more. I'm getting at least a Yello-Jaket version,  a few older bone ones, and a couple to have some nicer scale material put on.

With the winter vortex, I've been utilizing the Shield heavily,   And planning next week's Harbor Freight run. Sure, their stuff is not up to par with USA made stuff (or even Kobalt which I hold to the same level as most HFT stuff; apparently some Kobalt stuff was USA made at one point, but I ain't seen a single one in my 22 years; including 17 of going to our current and former Lowe's location), but it's great for cheap, semi-disposable tools, stuff to loan out to idiots, and to assemble task-specific kits (i.e. model kit building) with. And really, some of it isn't too bad; I have a Pittsburgh "Anti Shock" rip hammer I got for $8 from there I use regularly for fencing and I love it.

I have an old Pittsburgh straight edge screwdriver I picked up to repair my bus almost 20 years ago that has outlasted a pile of better name tools.

All I can say is that this was truly an enjoyable challenge. My original plan was to carry a different knife every day. Instead, I ended up finding a few favorites (Kaufmann, 110LT, Opinel DIY, Case Mini Trapper and Lightweight Stockman) that I liked quite well, and carried regularly; with a few knives that seldom see use mixed in.  Tommorrow, I start the Tough Tool challenge. During it, I will try to focus on Schrade USA knives to complement the Tough Tool (which itself is a USA made model).

This morning, I carried the Kaufmann first thing, but misplaced it. Grabbed this little Sheffield-made penknife to replace it until I could find that Kaufmann.   The tang stamp is "STAINLESS SHEFFIELD ENGLAND"; no hint of a maker. My assumption is either Ibberson or John Watts. Advertises the "Asbestos and Rubber Company" located at Hull and Ossett, Glasgow (and they're still in business as ARCO, probably no longer dealing in asbestos  :D) It's super thin, and you can't even tell it's in your pocket.
