Explore the world through the magnifier!
« on: May 01, 2019, 10:30:43 PM »
After talking with glbm this morning, i realized that i had not carried my Explorer for a while. So i packed it today and while being outside in the garden i had the idea to use its magnifying glass to take some photos of small flowers and such.
I always enjoyed taking photos using a macro lens for my camera, but this is a multi tool forum after all. So i used what i had on hand. The Explorer and my phone. Below are a few of the photos i took today.

Now get your SAKs with magnifying glasses out and show us your (small) world from a different point of view!  :cheers:

Great idea!  The Explorer has been on my mind a lot lately too.

Those are fantastic photos, SirVic! :drool:

Great thread idea. I'll have to take a pic or two as well. Won't be as nice as yours, but hey, I just want to be included too. :woohoo:

To commemorate the carry for a while, which is the Explorer and Free P4, this one looked fairly good for an indoors photo. The silvertech scales are only the second set of scales on this Explorer. The first set, red of course, got damaged from a pretty gnarly fall. :ahhh
The SilverTech is fitting for the pair. :)

Viva la Explorer. The only part of my EDC that has never been changed. I wouldn't even know how to sit without an Explorer in my back left pocket. :ahhh



The main EDC, for a while, with Explorer.

Nice! I like the magnifying glass. It’s like looking into another world, when you suddenly see detail in something you could not before  :)

Funny to think at one time I had 6 Swisschamps.  I am a huge fan of the magnifier.  I finally got a second Explorer ( no hook variety ) for which I was very happy.  My Swisschamp is also a no hook variety.  I like the wider viewing of the clear housing but I also like the stronger magnification of the grey housing. 

I was too lazy to get my Passenger and +B Yeoman.
