Day 3

(Image removed from quote.)

I had the Eldris for a while now, and thought I should bring it out for the photo op today.  Next to it is a Mora "Rookie and a modded Mora No. 2.

I remembered when I planned to get the Eldris as it was being released, I had high hopes for it.  Based on my of my Mora knives experiences, somehow I was hoping it would be a light weight knife with great utility and a full grip.   But in reality, I felt the features on this knife are conflicting, and can't really understand the concept behind the design. 

The handle is contoured, but the grip is quite short.  I have a mid-large size hand(Mechanix glove), but this is only a 3.5 finger grip for me.  The blade is really short(2.2), but the bulky handle makes the real usable cutting edge felt even shorter.  The overall length is short, but since the fat handle and sheath is quite girthy, it's hard to horizontal carry this like most small, lightweight fixie.  The blade height is rather top, despite the short blade length, which makes it hard to maneuver when craving wood.

All in all, I  never fully understand the knife and warm up to it.  If for wood carving, there is Mora 120 wood craving knife(highly recommend this), which has longer handle, awesome geometry, lighter and slimmer in profile.  If we just want a 'small' knife, the Rookie could have fitted the bill(with a little modding) or even the Mora No.1 would have done it.
Thanks for your thoughts.  They seem on par with what I was thinking would be the case and why I not purchased one yet.

Yes it is, it's one of those cheap sets that comes with generic multitools.. But I changed out the bits for the ones I want and kept the adaptor

Hmm.. never come across one of those, but then again I’ve never paid attention to generic multitools.
Maybe I should..

Day 3


It has only been 2 1/2 days, and I am already annoyed with how tight the blade is on my brand new Wave.  I oiled it, but it didn't help.  I'm not sure if I should just let it wear in for a while, or if I should loosen the pivot.

Is that a bit adapter that works with the SAK?

The first one on my list would be Nissan Skyline. It was the top car when I was a teenager, and I still love it. It’s simple and powerful, especially with some exclusive modifications. Recently I saw an ad featuring  in my area, and the temptation is really big. It’s the R34 version, and the coolest thing is that it is the GT-R Nismo Z-Tune limited edition, which means the car's power output is 500HP! It’s insane, and I have never seen anything like this before.
But the price is more than $300K. Not sure if I’m ready for that. Is the price adequate?

I posted this earlier today and have done it before. But it's still a good combo with very little overlap
