“… We love these little knives, in all their many varieties!” *

(*Apologies to The Kinks… :D)

I’m surprised there isn’t a thread to praise the capable cousin of the Classic, with its Philips driver, and its “EDC essential” cap lifter!

So here it is! :tu:

Ride on ramblers! :salute:

 I have thought a lot about how to choose between the rally and the rambler but my rambler stays with me pretty much all the time

The loss of the scissors, would be reason enough for me to choose the rambler.  :ahhh

:rofl: Love it! Great description! :hatsoff:

I’ve always been I bit scared to get a Manager as I don’t like the idea of the ink leaking in my pocket.
Though, I guess those pressurised cartridges are pretty good?  :think:

And I’m also worried the extra girth might make an unsightly bulge in my pocket…  :D

:D pocket bulge is real I know…but think you’ll be ok :think: :rofl:

Never had one leak, you owe it to yourself to try one.

As much as the Rambler is better than the classic to me, yep it’s all about that combo tool, the pen in the manager makes it that little better again.
Very handy (pun intended) but importantly also very good to use, way better than the pens on 91mm plus models, much more comfortable in hand

:cheers:

You must’ve known I’ve been thinking about getting a manager. Just to try, obviously :pok:

I see your Ramblers and Managers and raise you a LED.

 :pok: :pok:

Midnite Manager FTY! I've been EDCing it for I don't know how long. It's a bit thicker, but I don't mind the bulge in my pocket.

 :D :D

The only Manager I’m likely to be seeing is the Bank Manager, when my account goes overdrawn! :pommel:

Still, changing the subject… :whistle:

Can anybody else open their Rambler one-handed?

Can't deal without my Rambler. Replaced my LM Style CS and no regrets! Use it constantly. I have Ebony scales on mine.

What is in that last picture?  :think:
Is it a micarta-scaled something, and carbon pen?

Thanks for this thread, Andy!  There is no tool more deserving, IMO.  :cheers:

This one is the only SAK that is always on me, clipped to my house keys.  For its 15th anniversary (purchased 6/1/2006) I popped the scales off, cleaned, polished, lubed and sharpened it.  It's ready for another 15 years. 

The shield is long gone, but the Stayglow still shines as bright as ever.

It’s good to know your rambler is a good, long-term, companion. :tu:

I’m also a big fan of anything “glow in the dark”. Nice! 8)

It must be ‘cos it’s lunchtime… mmm, Danish! :drool:

I like the Rambler and Manager. I used to EDC one for years. No ink leaks, negligible size and weight. Why would anyone choose the Classic over it, is beyond me. I wish they offered Alox and limited editions Ramblers.

 It’s great to hear the pens is such a great addition to the Manager. :cheers:

Also, :iagree: I’d love an Alox Rambler too! :tu:

I’ve even tried to make one myself, I’m so desperate. Though, with little success…  :'(

See here: https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,87256.msg2237642.html#msg2237642

I think I’ll just have to bite the bullet, someday, and get a custom one…

I have seen the perfect one on Instagram :dd:

Though, I hate to think how much it’ll cost.  :-\

An Alox Rambler would be great as a choice, but I don't think I would carry one due to the lack of T&T.  My nylon (Stayglow) scales still look great after 15 years of banging around on my keychain.  I think it would be nice if they would come in all the cellidor colors of the rainbow like the Classic as well.
