What am I waiting for?  A new OHT with the fancy new hole and LED light, a couple of new Gerber tools, but the picture was unclear so I couldn't tell you what they were, possibly a Charge Ti (cross yer fingies!), a Gerber 700 Urban Legend... I think that's about it tool-wise at the moment.

Hi,

What is the meaning of "cree" with regard to flashlights.  I ask as I have a Leatherman Monarch 500 CREE LED on the way to me.

I appreciate your help (I'm a mini-maglite survivor) - Joe

Title: Re: What do we have on the way?
Post by: Viper on November 26, 2007, 03:47:17 AM
I like the 700 so much more than the 800.

On the way I have a Gerber MP600. And in about a week, I'l have a new Pentagonlight on the way!

I also have a Topo Meridian and a Gerber Double-Take coming from my uncle. When I visited the Bass Pro shop he works at, I found them, and I wanted to buy them (I swore it would be my last big purchase until my Strad  :twak: ). My uncle gets an employee discount of 10 percent, but he said if I didn't mind waiting a few days, his extra discount days started the day after I left, and he could get it for a lot less, and then ship it to me. So I'm waiting for them, but I get 25 instead of 10 percent off! Since he lives and works in Missouri, it was all American dollars, and the total price of the Topo and Gerber together was just shy of 100USD, but once you take off the 25 percent, it is about as much as a Topo without a discount, so it's like I'm buying the Topo and getting the Gerber for free!

The Topo is one of my favorite knives, and I liked the Gerber because I use both serrated and straight edge blades very often, but it is difficult to find them both in a single package without buying a multitool, so I will likely carry this when I can't carry a multitool, and when I expect to use both a serrated and non-serrated knife blade.

They also had a lady with a grinder that would sharpen any knife for 1 to 4 American dollars (depending on the size) and I got a couple of my knives sharpened (I am very bad at sharpening knives, I usually end up making them more dull). She also sharpened the double edge on my Powerlock (I got it double-ground originally, but it wasn't very sharp).

This post is unneccesarily long... :twak:

WhichDawg is correct.

CREE from what I understand specialise in making very bright, efficient, reliable LED's. And other semiconductors (I think :think:)

I did yes.  :(  It's not a bad tool -far from it, but, it did have a number of things I didn't like which put me off and in the end I just didn't use it.

That's the main reason why I bought the supertool.  To replace the powerlock.

As our postal delivery time differs from one day to the next and as I can't spend all day monitoring the arrival or otherwise of our postman I check the post box as & when it's convenient, hence 2 or 3 times a day.

So if I check at 10am and the post box is empty, unless the lane I live on is covered in red elastic bands, I have no way of knowing if the postman has indeed been but not left anything for me so I will check again later in the day.

Ok, my brief thoughts so far...

KF4- Excellent little tool.  Great tool selection and the snap is really good.  The pliers are superb for the tools size, which actually feels a bit smaller than I was expecting,  which is a good thing.  The saw is a little odd with it being under the awl, but due to it's size I doubt i'd use the saw much anyway.

Pulse- Again a great tool and the handles are a great improvement on the PST's.  Lock mechanism feels a little odd and I am sure needs to get used to.  So far however I prefer the simplicity of the supertools lock, however the pulse's is a lot safer.  Again great tool line up.

Shortcut- Same thoughts as I had with the Clutch, good tool selection for such a little thing and great build quality as well.  This opens a lot easier than the Clutch so that is better.  Overall, a vast improvement on my Solstice.

Does your Shortcut/Clutch snap in really fast. I have a brand new Clutch, had it a long while but never ECD it (I should really), and I only have to slightly fold it back and SNAP! it closes at 100mph and about takes my hand off, does yours do that. Never known a tool shut so quickly/strongly  :D

My Clutch does that.  And I nearly break my thumb off trying to get the tools out on it as well.

The shortcut still closes quickly but not nearly as bad as the clutch.  The tools are far easier to get out as well.

Well I had looked at the Wenger Tool Chest and wanted a Wenger.  But after reading the comparison of it in SOSAK I saw the compass and magnifier werent that good.  They seemed to add unneeded bulk.  Then I read Def's review of the EvoGrip S557 in SOSAK and just had to have it.  I found it, the black and red version at the following link for $44.10:

http://americanesuperstore.stores.yahoo.net/mow16813.html

What made this such a nice knife to me was not only the slip joint pliers but the locking knife, screwdrivers and the universal wrench.  Rather than just seeing how many gizmos it can have it seems to rate for me useful and robust tools.  Can't wait for it to come!

You're cruel.  I'm supposed to get support here.    :ahhh It will be the end of this coming week before I see it.  Just taunt me with pictures.  I ordered a couple of mini-screwdrivers so I have one to put in the cork screw.  Don't use a cork screw much so it can be a holder.  Those screw drivers can come in handy.

I did a search for Benchmade Mini-Grip and came up with this picture:

yes J-Sews, just different model numbers. Some people like holes, some don't (theirs a joke there I know it)

I like em both (no jokes please) and I have a regular size grip and a Benchmade 710 in D2 steel;

(http://i6.tinypic.com/6tmrae0.jpg)

BM have a system called "the axis lock" on their folders, you people in the UK would be in serious trouble
but you pull down the button and with a flick of the wrist, "snap" it opens up (or closes that way too)
which is really nice if your other hand is busy/loaded. and it also opens and closes manually too,
using the hole or stud.

Agreed but true ones usually are, but your right not always and clip point is my least favorite blade.
A bowie is a knife designed for fighters, which is something I don't need. this one does have good balance and feel.

the handle material (Resiprene C) the grind was made for EDCing. :)

Lucky you mate, I take it your happy with it :D

It's very nice.

It will actually be my first drawer/shelf queen as well.

I know.  :-\

So much for me just buying tools to use them.

So is this what they call coming to the dark side of the Force??  ???

All three of my mini-grips have the thumb stud, but I wanted to try the hole (no jokes), so I ordered two mini-grips BM555, one in plain edge and one in serrated.  I do have a blade with the hole (Spyderco Native) and I've found that I can flick that open just as fast as one with a thumb stud, so I don't think I'll have any trouble liking my new Benchies.

I too have the Juice (the CS4) and I also have the polycarbonate sheath.  I still haven't used it, it's sitting on my computer desk.  The first time it's been used was the other day when my wife asked me if I had a pliers handy.  I looked at her like "Was she serious?"  I went over the 3 or 4 options I had to give her and noticed the CS4 sitting on the desk.  I said, "Use this." 

She said she liked it.  I may have lost it forever... :-[

Yippie!  My DMT Diafold sharpener with the 2200 grit ceramic is at the UPS distribution center here in the Denver area.  Online package tracking is so nice.  It's sort of like those Christmas eve reports you get on the location of Santa's sleigh.  I wonder how you bloaks in England get your stuff delivered.  UPS seems to have the best online package tracking.  FedEx isn't as fine grained and up to date in tracking online.  The United States Postal Service is the worst.  By the time they've updated it you've already had what you were waiting for for a week.

I've received all of these except the Gerber IU.  The olive green Cadet is beautiful.  I highly recommend them.

The JetBeam C-LE v1.2 has become my favored EDC flashlight.  It's bright, well engineered and in a small, single AA cell twist-switch package.  Hopefully I'll have time to write a short review on it.

The cheapest I've seen them from a reputable dealer has been 49.95$+6.99$ shipping. I got lucky with my second one and found a seller on CPF who let it go for 20$ because it had a pulse issue on the two lowest levels (I can't see it myself). All the others sold have been for 40$-45$ shipped.

I have one of these: http://www.photonlight.com/X-Light-Micro-Keychain-LED-Flashlights-p/xm-keychain-led-flashlight.htm

..and I'm impressed with it.  This is the type of light you'll want to replace batteries in, though.  I don't consider it disposable.

I took a look at the Sidewinder on Brightguy.  I looks great--especially since it's AA.  Thanks for the tip!

Ask Mojofilter over at British Blades, it'll be about £20. The reason I went for bolts is so I can take the belt loop off & replace it with a Teklok, so I can fit it to PALS webbing.

Today I received, in between a car insurance quote, a bill, and an invitation to a trade show - A PACKAGE (My secretary wanted to know why I was getting personally labeled packages as opposed to the dozen odd Business labeled courier boxes I get each day - she too enjoyed a fondle of my new toys)

The SAK was claimed to be "worn" - which is an outright lie, there is nowt but the slightest scuffing to be seen, included was an unsolicited Schrade Uncle Henry Premium Stock - which has a RRP of around $60AU - A very generous addition above and beyond our original agreed trade.

AND a fantastic Lanyard Fob! (which has now been transferred to my Pioneer)

John, let it be known that you are a Gentleman and a scholar!

Making me feel all the more like a smurf for not posting your gear yet.

However, I come prepared with not one, but two excuses. Working from 7am to 7pm makes getting to the Post Office a challenge, and I had to find a bigger bag to fit everything in  :-\

-Tomorrow is in fact Australia Day, however, (as long as Post Offices are open, which I'm not positive they will be), I swear on pain of shame and eternal accusations of dishonesty, that I will have your package sent.

My Orange Monster has been on my wrist non stop for quite some time lately!  Classy, functional and built like a tank!

I have the original rubber band, but I prefer to wear it on leather.  Of course, like me you need an orange SAK to match it!

As for beating this month, I won't be seeing most of those toys until I get to Las Vegas!  I am going to have to bring a spare suitcase just to get it all home! :D

And as for why I got three Zillas, well I have one black one from CRKT that's been held in escrow for me for a while, and two red ones like the one Mikey has listed in the For Sale Forum.

I'm not sure the Premium Stock has been out of my hand for more than a few minutes since I got it. I slip it away for tasks that require maximum dexterity, but otherwise can't stop myself from fiddling with it!


I'm not usually a fan of this style of thing, and it is kind of ugly, but the Staglon makes for a grippy surface, and the small Spey and Sheepsfoot blades are great for small jobs and save me from getting out my "Big Three Inch" lockback sheepsfoot.

it's around 90mm long, and a little bit chubby (I'm used to my Lockback, which is two bits of riveted sheet metal and a blade in the middle- 8mm thick in total), but I'm perfectly happy to have it in my pocket next to my wallet.

I don't think I ever would have bought one myself, but now that I've played with it, I don't know how I ever survived before!

I'm about 99% sure that my next purchase will be a foam martial arts practice cane. http://www.sof-stx.com/productCat22539.ctlg

As some of you may recall I need a cane to get around so I have been kinda studying ways to make it a decent self defense weapon besides merely just using it like a club. I can't see good enough to use a handgun anymore and I think a good oak cane is a better self defense weapon than a knife. I can certainly take it more places than both a handgun and a knife.

I have a heavy bag to practice on but I have been unable to put foam on one of my regular canes to my satisfaction for practice, and just hitting a hard cane on the bag would ruin it quickly so I want this to train with.

When it warms up (and when we get caught up on our bills) I'm hoping to start taking some classes with Professor Wayne Carmen, he's a hall of fame martial arts instructor who taught Elvis some stuff. He has a cane martial arts class down in Branson MO which is about 30 minutes from me.

After that I'm thinking about getting a Sheffield British Army Knife. I may also put my Supertool 200 and my SOG Powerlock on the trading block and see what I can get.

I have another Jetbeam C-LE flashlight coming.  I've found that it's the perfect EDC for me (for now), so I decided to buy a backup.

I just got my Safari Hunter back from its second trip to Scibeer.  After the first round, I decided the G-10 scales were too slippery, so I sent it back for bead blasting.  It is so much better!  Sorry LM123, it's a keeper.

I also just got a custom Victorinox cellidor Woodsman from Scibeer that he assembled from parts.  In case you're not familiar with the cellidor Woodsman, it is an Explorer with wood saw.  It is absolutely like a brand new Victorinox in every way.  If any of you are interested in seeing the assembly of something like this, I have step-by-step pictures of the assembly process.  I will share them with Bill's blessing.

I just got my Safari Hunter back from its second trip to Scibeer.  After the first round, I decided the G-10 scales were too slippery, so I sent it back for bead blasting.  It is so much better!  Sorry LM123, it's a keeper.

I also just got a custom Victorinox cellidor Woodsman from Scibeer that he assembled from parts.  In case you're not familiar with the cellidor Woodsman, it is an Explorer with wood saw.  It is absolutely like a brand new Victorinox in every way.  If any of you are interested in seeing the assembly of something like this, I have step-by-step pictures of the assembly process.  I will share them with Bill's blessing.
Please pester Bill for permission then :drool:

It's just the perfect woodsman's folder, that looks just as good hanging on a soldiers webbing as it does in the best man's trouser pockets :)

The fit and finish is better than on knives I've had costing 12 times as much, the knife can be sharpened on anything from the bottom of a coffee cup to your mouse mat :)

It's the cheapest life insurance you can buy in a tiny little, never leave at home package :)

Well the alox range comes in dozen's of colours now, but farmer's are (if you can find them) available in Blue, Red, and silver, but the one I really want is copper coloured :drool: :drool:

But silvers best for edc because they seem to just shrug off whatever you throw at them and still look new :)

And yes the farmer is my favorite ;)

Micky D's story is EXACTLY why I want a Farmer. I also have a Spirit with a saw but it is bigger and there may be occasions where I don't carry it. Like if I'm wearing sweats. The Farmer(and of course the Vic Soldier and Wenger SI) will last a lifetime, is rugged enough to handle anything you throw at it but is not out of place at a formal dinner. The difference between the Soldier and the Farmer is that with the Farmer you have a very useful implement for the outdoors. If you are strictly an urban dweller the Soldier would be just fine.

I thought about getting a custom Hiker from Scott at knifecooperative.com or a Fieldmaster but the former is too expensive right now and the latter has the plastic scales which I'm not too fond of in a possible outdoor knife. Plus it is a little thick. Of course I could get a custom put on that one too but it would be even more money than the Hiker.

The only trouble with 91mm sak's is they seem a little feeble (there not of course) after getting one of the Alox model's :-\

Yep. They're far from feeble but I doubt they can withstand the abuse the Alox ones can. At least in stock form. I have a G-10 handled Tinker that seems to be as tough as nails. But it also cost a bit more too.

Brass?  I think you mean Copper, don't you?  You can have brass liners, but AFAIK, that's only in the older red and silver ones with the silver cross.  The only copper Farmer was the VSAKCS special.

There are other colors available but, for the most part, you'll only find them with company logos on them.

camping booties-down, Terry's goodies, Busse Game Warden (tentative on trade), I think that's it!

Oh and thanks for clarifying it for me mate :)

No problem :) There's not really many differences between the 700 and 800. CE blade on the 800, plain on the 700, and a blade exchanger on the 800 instead of a pair of tweezers (and a lanyard ring i think) on the 700. They both tend to go for roughly the same price on ebay too, or at least the ones i've seen.

I have a Fenix LOD Rebel on the way.

I just received a big box of SAK goodies from M.Tex that I bought in the B/S/T section here.  Whichdawg and I are splitting it up, so we'll both be sharing in that joy.

I also received a Novatac 120p flashlight yesterday and I'm smitten.

WoW! that's one of my dream lights  :drool: congrats.


I assume you're referring to the 120P.

Don't get one!  What I've found over the last two days is that, if you have one, you'll never want to use anything else!  So what is going to happen to the other 30 or so lights in my collection?  The poor things are going to sit there, all alone and unwanted, in my machinist's chest.

Seriously, it is a sweet light.  The pics are coming--be patient.

I think some people might think that the programmable nature makes it a complex light to operate, but it certainly doesn't.  Once you program the light the way you want it, operation is quite simple.  The programming itself is even a simple task, really.

I see used 120Ps on CPF for sale for around $120 on occasion.  I can keep an eye on them for you if you'd like.  That is what I paid for mine and, although that's much more than I've ever paid for a torch, the 120P is worth it.

Tools are here!

Turned out to actually be the following:


I was under the impression these were from a collection but after receiving them I think they are TSA seizures. I've sent an email to the seller, I'm curious. I am a little disappointed in the condition of some of the tools.

 The lock-bar for the saw on the old Wave is broken (how that happened I have no idea), also on the Wave one of the friction bars is broken, another interesting break that I have no idea how it could have happened, and one of the PST IIs has bent plier tips. All in all I suppose the tools are in pretty good shape and I got a good price so no real negative feedback to give.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v14/redmodels/DSCF1948.jpg)

Tools were dirty! I spent about an hour with some toothpaste, soap and a toothbrush scrubbing them down. They look a lot better and are nice and worn but not too beat up.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v14/redmodels/DSCF1949.jpg)

Tools drying, I've been rotating them on and off my heater to speed things up and help the oil seep down into the nooks/crannies before sharpening and storage/carry.

Well, I have three more flashlights coming.  ::)  I truly have a sickness.

I couldn't pass these up--they were in mint condition, and the price was right.

Two Fenix P1-CE Q2 Special Editions, in natural finish.  These are tiny, single stage (off and BRIGHT) CR123a lights that have a Q2 bin Cree LED, brass heat sink, textured reflector and Special Edition engraving from fenix-store.com.  Only 50 of them were sold by Fenix-store.  I will probably want to sell one of these so, if anyone is interested in one, PM me.

One Fenix P2D-CE Q5, black finish.  This one is new in box, with the Q5 bin Cree and textured reflector.  I will most likely be using the head from this light on a 2AA L2D body.  I have two L2Ds that currently have P4 bin emitters.  This one should be noticably brighter with the Q5.

...probably too much information, but there you go.

Is yours the P1-CE or the P1D-CE?  This one (P1-CE) doesn't have multiple levels, just on & off.  The body is slightly smaller, and it's not as bright as the P1D-CE, but the runtime is better.

Thanks.  I do need to get a collection picture together.  I should have done it a couple of weeks ago--I just sold about 12 lights.  I seem to buy them nearly as quickly as I sell them.  I have a really detailed spreadsheet where I keep track of all the lights and parts, and what they cost me.  I keep the total cost below a certain threshold, but lately I've been buying expensive lights.  So, I have the same amount invested but fewer, better quality lights.

'Ya know, a couple of months ago I decided that I was going to sell off most, if not all, of my CR123a lights because I really like to use NiMH for the (nearly) free lumens.  Then I talked myself into the Novatac and here I am buying CR123a lights again.  I'm all over the place.  ::) :P

The Novatac doesn't really count though, because it works so well with RCR123 (rechargable) Li-Ions.  The P1-CE will work well with them too, since it's just a single level light.

My mother in law claimed one as did my 3 year old. So I'm down to 3. I also got some tweezers that look to be top quality. I got a couple of the Grimloc carabiners which are smaller than I assumed they'd be but they appear to be quality. I also got a wind up radio but I haven't had a chance to check it out yet.

Those little $1 are amazing for the price, I've got a few.

Which tweezers did you get?  The pair I got from Countycomm has a key ring attachment and a NSN number...another great tool.  It looks "fat" but can really grab splinters and has great control due to the thich surface area.

I'm thinking of placing another order...I usually wait until I have about $50 worth of stuff I want from them before I order :D

Word of advice. DON'T take apart those $1 flashlights from countycomm.com unless you have the eyes of a hawk and the hands of a surgeon. I was curious to see how easy it would be to replace the battery in it and once apart I couldn't get it back together to save my life. Well I could get it back together but it wouldn't work.

Well, I've had a Swisstool on the way for about three weeks that finally arrived today (won it on Ebay (the seller got his mailings mixed up) for $9.99 - how's that for a steal, I mean, deal?).  Didn't need it.  My Wave I've had for about three years now has done just fine, but since I've been hanging around here with y'all, somehow one multi just isn't good enough anymore :).  It's my first Swiss multi and now I understand what all the raving is about.  It's a very nice tool.  It has a logo on it, but I imagine that's just something a company stamped on their giveaways for advertising, but if not, please let me know.  Other than that, it seems to be in perfect condition.  I don't think the previous owner had used it once. 

I doubt it will replace my Wave as my EDC, since I made a bit holder to fit the bit driver and I carry a full set of regular 1/4" bits along with it, and I also can't see going without the OHO blades.  I also like the more narrow needlenose on the Wave pliers, but it's easy to tell the Swisstool is a high quality tool.  The "snappiness" of each tool to its position is very satisfying.  I like it a lot and look forward to trying it out around the house.  It's easy to see why some of y'all like it so much.

BTW, I also just received a delivery a couple of days ago from CountyComm and ordered some of those $1.00 lights.  They do work pretty well for the price, although I noticed quite a variation in brightness between a couple of them.  I guess they're not being too picky on the LEDs when they're only going for $1.00.  I also ordered a peanut lighter, a widgy bar, a micro widgy, and a few other items.  They all seem to work quite well, and certainly seem to be well worth the price they're going for.

Got my light pen today. It's a nice little piece of gear for the price, 5$ shipped from an eBay vendor. Construction is fair, it's all plastic but the refill is a nice roller ball with good ink.

It uses two LEDs on different sides of the point, giving a lot more light that the incandescent light pen I was using before. It's also bright enough to replace my keychain flashlight and serves as a good borrowing light source for times when I don't want to give my 60$ EDC to someone I don't trust.

Here's a picture of the beam from @1 foot.

An interesting bonus is that when activated with the cap on it becomes a dim, blue glowstick. Just barely bright enough to move around a room in darkness but very effective in the "find me" role. I plan to clip this to my pocket or belt when playing in the dark with other people so they know where to find me should they need bright light.

I still find it puzzling that there aren't more lighted pens offered for sale. Seems like having a light source right next to the writing source in the same instrument would be a given.

Well the postman has been kind to me again today and I have received mu Subcom.  :)  First impressions are good.  The lock up is tight and the blade is really sharp.  :o  It is actually quite surprising how small it is.

Pictures (of course!  :D) will follow later. ;)

Uh-oh.  I have another light on the way.  It was a definite impulse buy but, again, the price was right.

Here's a link to the original ad page: http://www.elektrolumens.com/Quad/QuadStar.html



I got this today.  It's FREAKING BRIGHT and throws this HUGE spot of light.  It's brighter than any other flashlight I own for sure.

Used LED lights are the way to go.  This one looks brand new and cost me 1/3 of its original price from 2005.

Well, I've had a Swisstool on the way for about three weeks that finally arrived today (won it on Ebay (the seller got his mailings mixed up) for $9.99 - how's that for a steal, I mean, deal?).  Didn't need it.  My Wave I've had for about three years now has done just fine, but since I've been hanging around here with y'all, somehow one multi just isn't good enough anymore :).  It's my first Swiss multi and now I understand what all the raving is about.  It's a very nice tool.  It has a logo on it, but I imagine that's just something a company stamped on their giveaways for advertising, but if not, please let me know.  Other than that, it seems to be in perfect condition.  I don't think the previous owner had used it once. 

I doubt it will replace my Wave as my EDC, since I made a bit holder to fit the bit driver and I carry a full set of regular 1/4" bits along with it, and I also can't see going without the OHO blades.  I also like the more narrow needlenose on the Wave pliers, but it's easy to tell the Swisstool is a high quality tool.  The "snappiness" of each tool to its position is very satisfying.  I like it a lot and look forward to trying it out around the house.  It's easy to see why some of y'all like it so much.

BTW, I also just received a delivery a couple of days ago from CountyComm and ordered some of those $1.00 lights.  They do work pretty well for the price, although I noticed quite a variation in brightness between a couple of them.  I guess they're not being too picky on the LEDs when they're only going for $1.00.  I also ordered a peanut lighter, a widgy bar, a micro widgy, and a few other items.  They all seem to work quite well, and certainly seem to be well worth the price they're going for.

Wow thats a really great deal you got there  :D  The logo isnt std and must of been put on by a company like you said . Its a RS model which is the one I EDC . Any more questions just ask  :)

Cheers

Yeah, the guy that sold it called it a Swiss Victorian or something like that, but it looked like the real deal to me so I took a chance on it.  Turns out it is the real deal and in excellent shape, too.  I doubt if it's been used a half dozen times. 

Speaking of flashlights, it's not still "on the way", but a few weeks ago I did receive the Fenix P2D I had ordered.  I'm not a flashaholic by any means, but I do like to carry a good light with me, and while I really like the ARC AAA-P I've been EDCing for awhile, I was looking for something with a little more oomph that would still be small enough to fit in my belt pouch but without a bunch of rough edges that would make it tricky to pull out.  The P2D is ideal and man, is it bright.  I got the 4-in-1 Power Pack, with the Cree Q5 LED, which also comes with an additional L1D body so I can use a AA battery with it if I don't have a 123A handy.  I also got the charger and some RCR123's from AW on CPF so I don't have to keep buying the 123A's.  In the time I've had it, I've been very impressed with all of this stuff.  I don't have a bunch of (or even any) other lights to compare it to myself, but I gotta say, for the size of the package, this thing sure puts out all of the light I need!

Prime- I'd be interested to hear your continuing thoughts on the Flik- so far it seems we are in agreement on it though.  I have to say, when we saw it at the SHOT Show it didn't seem like anything that special, but now that I have one I have to say I've been really pleased with it.

Also, I think www.Gerber-Tools.com will be carrying the black ones as well.  Dennis is a serious Gerber guy and I can't see him not offering it in both finishes.  They are in stock as of a couple of days ago, although they may not be listed yet.

I haven't put it any great use today, just cut open some M&Ms at the movie theater. But I have been playing with it all day though and I am pleased with it. I would recommend to anyone. The drivers are very stubby and hard to get out like you said in your review. But other that I really like it. The blades are nice and long, it has a nice pair of scissors and the pliers do snap out with a good FLIK  of the wrist. I know that's made in China but you really wouldn't know it unless you looked on the box. The quality is really good.

You think that box is bad , you should see what they did to both the replacements. :o :o

I, once again, fell asleep on the couch after receiving the 2 red Farmers. When I woke up, around midnight, the entire package was gone. I couldn't find it anywhere inside because one of them (I suspect Binger) took it outside. I got a flashlight (one of my 100+) and found the UPS package torn apart and no red Farmers to be found! :ahhh

I searched around in the dark and found the first box. No red Farmer inside. More searching. Found the first red Farmer. No damage but was already wet with dew. ::)
I searched around in the dark and found the 2nd box. No red Farmer inside. More searching. Found the 2nd red Farmer. No damage but was already wet with dew. ::)

Bottom line, I have two new red Farmers but the boxes are wasted.

A 3rd red farmer should be on my front porch when I get home in about an hour. I suspect I'll be searching for it around midnight! :twak:

I fall asleep on the couch and wake up about an hour later and see something on the floor in front of a chair Binger was laying in. It was the leather sheath the Powerlock came in with the top half now chewed off.  >:D

So I don't think they care, if I like it, they want it! ::)

Well I just got a nice package in the mail from Bison56.

He wanted one of those Ryobi "Nack" razor knives with the cartridge blade system so I said I would send him one. Well he wanted to send me something in return. I told him I only paid $3 for it on clearance but he still said he was going to send me a Marlboro branded Vic Swiss Champ! :ahhh

Well, I got it in the mail today and with it another knife! it's a SAK style Aitor from Spain I believe. Very nice and very sneaky Mr. Bob. 8)

He should get his "razor knife" from me today. ;)

Thanks Bob,

Aitor makes a darn good knife in my opinion. I've got three and have no complaints.

By the way, rumor last year was that Aitor was having a rough time of it and might go under. Anybody heard anything about them lately?

I don't think you'll get exponentially more money if the package was sealed than you would if you just cut a slit in the plastic and took the tool out.

Most collectors don't seem to care about clam packs, so I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you.  If it was boxed, then I'd say definitely keep the package, but no one cares about clams.  With clams I open them up and keep the back card in a folder, but that's about it.

Title: Re: What do we have on the way?
Post by: NutSAK on April 16, 2008, 10:57:13 PM
Runtime.  Alkalines cannot provide the amount of current that light requires on "turbo" mode, so the batteries are sucked dry VERY quickly.  If you use low, medium and high modes instead of turbo, the runtime will not be so bad.

Here are some runtime graphs for the L2D (thanks to chevrofreak on CPF).  Note the drastic runtime differences between alkaline and NiMH batteries, especially in the higher modes.  Output with fresh batteries is equal.

Title: Re: What do we have on the way?
Post by: NutSAK on April 17, 2008, 01:37:08 AM
No, E2 will have a longer runtime, but is it worth the price in the long run?  It's not to me--I love being able to use rechargables in my L2D.  I can tell you that Eneloops, even though they are only rated @ 2000mAh, perform very well in it.

Title: Re: What do we have on the way?
Post by: NutSAK on April 17, 2008, 01:53:59 AM
E2s aren't rated in mAh on the packaging.  E2s are not rechargable, they are lithium primaries just like the CR123a "camera" batteries you see so much of these days.  They are quite expensive at about $1 apiece around here.

The only real benefit to using E2s, in my opinion, is their shelf life, @ 15 years.  They are powerful batteries, as you can see from the runtime graphs, but they aren't affordable enough to be a replacement for alkalines.

I thought E2 are also rechargeables but I am doing my researh now. Sorry because I am new to this flashlight addiction.

One last question Terry. Will rechargeables like the Eneloop perform better than alkaline in terms of runtime and brightness? Thank you so much.

Eneloops will not be brighter than new alkalines, but the runtime will be much better with Eneloops.  The runtime will be similar to the 2650mAh NiMH batteries shown on the graphs.

8Cr14MoV

Chinese steel similar to AUS-8.

Here's a little info from a spyderco.com/forums user that sums it up nicely.

Quote
8Cr13MoV, a Chinese stainless steel with a high performance-to-cost ratio, often compared to AUS-8 (somewhat like 440B or 440C) but also to AUS-6 (somewhat like 440A). 8Cr13MoV is an evolution from its parent steel 13C26 (a low-carbide razor blade steel), with better wear resistance and a reduction in edge stability compared to 13C26. Reportedly tempered around the Rc 60s range, see discussion below. Featured in the Tenacious and most Byrd knives.

Let us know how it performs!

The liquid fuel lighters that I've ordered from CountyComm are true Imcos.  Check the base of the cylinder for the brand name.

It is the cree version. One thing I don't know about it is the momentary/twist switch, my life is not exciting enough to need a tactical switch. Good thing about SF is I can always resell it with minimal loss.

IMHO the switch on the L1,L2,A2 is the most user friendly switch on any flashlight. I think you'll like it, just use it until you get used to it before you even think about selling it. I like to carry mine so that I can use momentary low or press harder for high. I don't normally lock mine out. Forget tactical, just use it.

I never got on with them and would always select another tool in order to release the lock like on the original Supertool, but I never really tried to loosen them so I suppose they may get better in time.

I'm not sure really  :think: I've been trying out other tools lately , Sog , Gerber , LM . Not because I'm looking to replace the Swisstool but more to give other manufacturers a chance and to improve my own knowledge of them . I cant keep looking at everything through Swisstool tinted glasses  :D although I have yet to find something as good as the Swisstool . The Spirit on the other hand has alot of Swisstool in it ( obviously ) and makes for a great lightweight EDC . The pliers are probably the most comfortable on any Multitool .To sum up theres a space in my collection with the word Spirit  on it .

Ive got a Spirit I just never use it. The pliers feel kinda flimsy to me, that said, no, I have never pushed it, but I cant see it taking the kinds of things I put my Charge through and to me their in the same class.

I know this is almost blasphemous to say around here, but unfortunately I almost feel the same way about my Swisstool. I carried my Swisstool daily for about six months until just recently, now I'm back to carrying Leathermans, specifically the Charge and Core. What turned me off the Swisstool were two main things. First, the phillips is junk, its to small for the screws I deal with day to day consequently doing nothing more then striping most of the heads I tried to use it on. Second the plier head has developed way to much side to side play, probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 1/32 of an inch near the wire cutter. This really doesn't affect the tool yet, but its such a distraction every time I open up the tool and feel the floppiness of the pliers, it just shouldnt be like this IMO. I have a sixteen year old Supertool that has way less play in the plier head then my six month old Swisstool does, and I don't abuse my tools, its just occoured from day to day use.

So my opinion of the large Vic multi-tools has changed, I think they are very well engineered, function well when new and look nice, but they just don't hold up to the use I have put my Leathermans through some for over fifteen years.

I've just ordered a Vic Spirit and a new nylon sheath for my RS  :D

Dunc

What made you want another Spirit?

I'm not sure really  :think: I've been trying out other tools lately , Sog , Gerber , LM . Not because I'm looking to replace the Swisstool but more to give other manufacturers a chance and to improve my own knowledge of them . I cant keep looking at everything through Swisstool tinted glasses  :D although I have yet to find something as good as the Swisstool . The Spirit on the other hand has alot of Swisstool in it ( obviously ) and makes for a great lightweight EDC . The pliers are probably the most comfortable on any Multitool .To sum up theres a space in my collection with the word Spirit  on it .

Dunc

I love the Spirit too, I'm sure it wont be long until he gets one :D.  You say you haven't found anything as good as the Swisstool yet Dunc, have you tried the LM Core? I recently got an LM Core and it is bloody good! I'm using it at work everyday and it comes very close to the Swisstool IMO :o  I'm not saying it beats it, but its extremely close ;)

Ive got a Spirit I just never use it. The pliers feel kinda flimsy to me, that said, no, I have never pushed it, but I cant see it taking the kinds of things I put my Charge through and to me their in the same class.

I know this is almost blasphemous to say around here, but unfortunately I almost feel the same way about my Swisstool. I carried my Swisstool daily for about six months until just recently, now I'm back to carrying Leathermans, specifically the Charge and Core. What turned me off the Swisstool were two main things. First, the phillips is junk, its to small for the screws I deal with day to day consequently doing nothing more then striping most of the heads I tried to use it on. Second the plier head has developed way to much side to side play, probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 1/32 of an inch near the wire cutter. This really doesn't affect the tool yet, but its such a distraction every time I open up the tool and feel the floppiness of the pliers, it just shouldnt be like this IMO. I have a sixteen year old Supertool that has way less play in the plier head then my six month old Swisstool does, and I don't abuse my tools, its just occoured from day to day use.

So my opinion of the large Vic multi-tools has changed, I think they are very well engineered, function well when new and look nice, but they just don't hold up to the use I have put my Leathermans through some for over fifteen years.



Was the play always there or did it get worse overtime ? Have you thought about sending it back ? I would if I wasnt happy .

Dunc

Awesome birthday present there J-sews!  Your friend has excellent taste in SAKs.

I've been lusting after a S557 for a while - probably will be my next SAK aquistion.

Isn't the S557 a 5-layer SAK?

Looks to be too thick for pocket carry - anyway, too thick for me to pocket carry.

But, it looks like it'd be great to carry along in rucksack or briefcase - lots of capability packed into a fairly compact tool.

I've been keeping my eye on a SURGE!! for awhile now, but haven't pulled the trigger.  My Charge TTi  is my EDC for the foreseeable future though.  It's done everything I've asked of it for work.

Plus, I just bought a Ruger Super Redhawk in .44 Magnum with a Red Dot scope.  That set me back $800, so my multi budget is down to one a month for awhile.

The Ruger is a very accurate gun.  The .44 Mag is very accurate in this gun with the 7 1/2 barrell.  Very fun to shoot, but a little expensive.  I also have Smith and Wesson, Walther, Glock, Remington, and Browning.  Ruger as a company makes a very well built gun.  They are built like tanks.  Especially their SP101 revolvers.  I would like to get a 4" GP100 also.  I've thought about the SW1911 PD, but couldn't decide on a 5" or 4" barrell.

I just shot my brother's SRH .44 over the weekend.  It's an exact match--even the scope looks the same.  What brand is the scope?

BTW Mike, I plan to by a S&W 442 today.  I like the looks of the black over the 642, and I've heard about problems with the clearcoat on the 642 frame.  I'm rather meticulous about gun maintenance, so I'm not worried about the blued parts vs. stainless.

I like both, but I find the leather one is better. The nylon sheath has far too much velcro and I find it takes a lot to open and close it. Plus, a snap is so much more convenient.. You just need to break it in.. I don't see any reason why you wouldn't like the SURGE. It has all the features that your Charge has.. But, you get a stranded wire cutter, an awl, and heavy duty scissors.

Well, I was looking for a tough multi-tool for my BoB and, just before getting a Gerber Legend (dunno, the Charge TTi just didn't do it for me), discovered this forum and, consequently, the Swiss Deathgrip.

Eventurally, I ended up adding a 2AA Vic LED and a Farmer to my order. What can I say, they were on sale...  :oops:

It'll probably arrive in the next few hours at the airport that's 30 minutes from my house. It will then probably take a further week to make those final few miles....

I played with Mikes ( ;)) when I met up with him and I was really impressed with it.  I just wasn't sure if it was worth getting one as I already have a Swisstool, but Tim made me an offer I couldn't refuse.  :)

I found some Leatherman SC2s, and am now the proud owner of a blue one, and a "clear" one.

When I ordered them, I expected the colours to be the "Glacier Blue" a la the CS4, and the "Storm Grey" that all the common Juice models are available in - but no......

The blue is slightly darker, and the grey, is well not grey at all - it's (as the box label describes) "clear". Very nice actually. I'll try to get some pictures up later.

And, thanks to the glory of credit cards, I have ordered a Cabela's Legacy PST too. I'm excited about that one coming, and if their service is as good as last time, I might have it for the weekend too! :D

Going Rate for a Climber in these parts:
$39.95

What I just paid for a Waiter:

$37.50

Does that not seem odd?
(I asked the Shoppy what the story was, but her grasp of english seemed strained, and all she could do was insist "half price!" )

Now I've got time & a beer, I will edit with views:
(Oh, I also picked up a Squatter, which is the Economy Recruit. - I've been desperately seeking a Soldier to no luck & recent ennui has caused me to make foolish purchases(such as a $39 no-name folder, the shoddy quality of which is painfully present as soon as one picks it up, and $400 worth of fruity shirts)

Anyway, the Waiter.

I don't actually require a corkscrew terribly often, as I rarely drink plonk.
I am a bit surprised with the combo tool. This is my first experience with it, and it seems quite dainty - I'm used to the serious business of my Climber.

most of my beers are twist tops, and though I open several tins a week, my ever present PST has nobly performed in this task. I will be interested to see how it compares.

The blade - well it's a blade. It doesn't lock, it doesn't open one handed, it's just a good old fashioned penknife.

For a one layer knife, it's not very slick when compared to the Pioneer.



Now for the squatter - the quality is seen to be reduced, there are funny gaps here & there. (Maybe I'm just imagining them) - the Cap lifter doesn't set at 90 degress like the one on my Climber does, and, though I love the small spearpoint on my climber, if I am limited to four tools, I would have much preferred the awlspike of a Soldier.

I hope to replace the Premium Stock I received from Hawk with the Waiter for EDC. We will see how it compares in day to day knifery duties.

I suppose I will press the Squatter into service at work  - at $25, I am happy to commit it to the terrible tasks I perform in the factory/storeroom. (Scraping silicon, using the concrete floor as a cutting board for templates, cleaning assorted gunk out of assorted gunky crevices, opening crusted up paint tins & so on)

Lets see- I have two Standard ( plus the one from Tim), three RS, and two X's... I am beginning to like the X a lot more though.. Mainly because I SUCK at sharpening serrated edges.

I have a BO Gerber 600 with some other small items on the way from Kuwait.  The tool  Also spent time in Iraq. I bought it from a soldier that was selling some of his stuff on ebay. He is about to come home  from the desert.  It Should go well with a BO Powerlock I have that also spent time in Iraq.

You wont regret it Mike :)  The Core is a great tool. I had been using my Swisstool as my main tool for quite a while but when I got a Core, the Core has probably seen more use than my Swisstool, especially because its now kept at work. Its about the same as the Swisstool and feels very well built. I love having the choice of the Serrated and Straight blade on it, plus having the extended Philips screwdriver is great. It really does match the Swisstool in most areas.

Still, Whenever you see/hear a wife badmouths her husband on a TV talkshow(which is almost every episode), why does she get upset when the "evil, lazy,stupid, good-for-nothing, jerk of a husband" is caught having an affair??

I've got the Meyerco Necklance... It's not a bad little blade.  A little too bulky for me to use as a neckknife though.  The bottom one doesn't look too bad though. What's it called?

Does the sheath for the Necklance have a clip on it?  I'd like it as a boot knife...

I scored a LM mini whilst I was in New York , I was heading to Times Square to get some t shirts & caps for the boys & had a quick look in the window of one of those stores that sells phones . cameras etc & saw some LM's tucked away in the corner. I went inside and waited for ever (3 shop workers talking on their mobiles/cells  :o ) . I asked how much for LM mini & he said $39 , he could not find it in the cabinet I told him it is the one with the blue box. He says it is not a mini but would give it to me for $40 .I did not think it wise to quibble & say it says "MINI" on the box, as I think he may have been employed previously by the KGB  :P & I was in New York. The day after coming home I got this  ::) http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=180257180684 (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=180257180684) I am a sucker for a NIB retired LM . I just need a riveted PST(desperately  :)) , the 2 supertools. Not sure if I will include the original wave , Charge TI/Xti or the retired Juices in my retired LM quest.

It is pretty good although there is a small area that looks like has been burnt on top of the can opener.  I could smarten it up but I have just left it as it is as the marks are just part of it's history. 

Here's a couple more;

She's a real beauty Ben. :)  To me that old PST is the same sort of special as those old SAK Soldiers you have.


Even the plier head is enchanting. Sure, in later years they "improved" the pivot and made it stronger, but those early ones were wispy and elegent.

Later-model PST with wide pliers

Cheap Tool alert!
 Kinda late for on the way since its here now but thought I would post anyway. This tool is pretty heavy and about the size of a Swisstool.  The tools all lock but you have to open a second tool halfway to unlock the one you have been using.
  I don't buy cheap MTs very often but since it said Toro I decided I needed it. Toro bought out Wheel Horse garden tractors in  1986.   So this tool is about the only crossover item I have to go with both of my Hobbies.

Viking,
I'll probably carry a LM BO Surge I plan on ordering from Eleatherman, when his shipment arrives from the factory.

Until then, my regular Surge is working nicely.

BUt my biggest question is , since MT.org don't have one, which velcro patch goes on it?? :think:
THere are 3 possibles:

I've just ordered myself a skeletool cx...  After a few months of being very happy with my Swisstool X and Spirit i realised i needed to replace my rather sad collection of screwdrivers, only somehow during the process of looking at cheap sets of screwdrivers on ebay and various bit drivers i ended up being distracted by the Skeletool and leatherman bit set  :P Will have a nice long wait for it as i ordered it from the states again (for less than the price of a standard skeletool on amazon.co.uk i've ordered a CX and bit driver set inc p&p!), now where's that mailman  :mail:

Well it arrived!  This thing looks stunning and it's even smaller than i thought with a fantastic blade.  I'm pretty sure it's not meant to be this stiff though!  I've read a few things about it being a bit tight when you first get it, but the plier's are practically unusable, it has a one handed blade and two handed set of pliers, there's just no way to open them up with one hand!  I've got the wd40 out and opened and closed them constantly for the past hour, as well as used them on a few nuts but i can still suspend a 0.3kg  weight from one handle without them opening  :o

I broke the casing on my 4GB Sandisk Cruzer thumb drive, so I decided to buy a new 8GB drive.  I bought a Super Talent Pico C.  Check out the size of the drive below.  It is chrome-plated metal and supposedly waterproof:

I really like the U3 software on the Sandisk though, so I bought an 8GB Cruzer today at a great price also.  There are only 9 hours left on this deal, so don't pass it up if you need a great thumb drive:

Just orderd one of these in black for my Swiss Champ;  $18.50 shipped from an ebay seller

(http://www.knifecenter.com/knifecenter/sak/images/VN-33202.gif)

I really like my current EDC setup but I'm going to find a way to incorporate the Swiss Champ.

I need to get one of those, my Swisschamp just arrived and there's no way i'm leaving this thing of beauty floating around the bottom of my pocket, what a fantastic SAK this thing is!  I can't seem to find a UK seller for them though and Tim said in the other thread he doesn't have them in extra-large, any UK dwellers have any suggestions?
I've not seen them on these shores mate :( try these guy's there dead cheap for over here :)

I just took delivery of a Maxpedition Jumbo Versipak, wow, this thing aint falling apart! The main compartment is a fair bit smaller than i thought it would be (guess im going to have to pack smaller lunches  ;)) but i love the amount of pockets and the feel of it, not cheap but i'm thinking its going to last me a while! Also the bottle pouch is the perfect size for my Sigg bottle and the webbing on the strap seems designed to go with my Nite Ize Pock-it, which is nice  :D

Not so much what I got, but where I went.  My wife's Borgata Red Players card had a complimentary room, she decided to use for my birthday, so we spent the night there last thursday. Nice room, and the toilet had a phone next to it :o.

Plus, unlike the wife, I decided to move up, in the gambling world,from the one armed bandit to getting my cherry popped on the roulette wheel!! Well,,,,,,,,I won about $400!!

And that will be used to getting the room again inn about 2 weeks, for me and the wife. :angel:

Even-odds, 1st-12,2nd-12, third-12,and 4 corners :angel:

But the last 3 rounds, before they uped the minimun to $15, I started to loose.  That was when I decided to quit a winner for a change

But I just got another back-to-back days off on the 13th.  So I made a reservation there.
When I was there I carried a LM BO and a Surge , XE6 Juice and a CX.

This coming trip I'll be carrying a new Swissbianco Stayglow PE OHT, I just bought from Felinevet Tim.  Bought with my ill gotten booty from the Borgata  :angel:

This is more of a "wishlist thing" than on the way.

I'd love to know how to get the OSCE-SAK(along with yellow beret and badge) that Def showed in SOSAK a while back.

This is one of those SAKs that maybe even Felinevet Tim may be hard up in getting.  Unless Tim knows of a cat in the EU that owes him a favor ::)

They are pretty hard to come by nowadays.  The good thing is that they were (and still are!) virtually useless, so most of the ones you see are in great shape!

That having been said, if you are looking for one of these, make certain it is a SOG, and not a Stanley model, which have occasionally been known to explode during light use.

I finally broke down and bought one of these:

(http://www.noze-nuz.com/ontario/ONSP16.jpg)

It's the Ontario Knives SPAX.  Here's the spiel:

ONTARIO KNIFE COMPANY

US MILITARY ISSUE KNIVES
SP16 SPAX EMERGENCY FIRE RESCUE AXE
MSRP $108.99

SPEC PLUS SERIES

MADE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

CENTER CUT OUT OPENS AND CLOSES:

    *
      Fire Hydrants
    *
      Gas Valves
    *
      Epoxy Powder Coated 1095 Steel.
    *
      Full Tang Construction
    *
      57-58 RC blade hardness.
    *
      8" blade length, 13.125" overall length.
    *

Since 1942 Ontario Knife Company has been a major suppler of the U.S. Armed forces.

I paid about half the MSRP, even with shipping.  Well actually I paid about a quarter of MSRP, then doubled that with the shipping costs, but you get the idea! :D

I'll probably keep it in the Jeep during the winter for emergencies.

Well this past week on ebay i have got over £300 (rrp) worth of stuff for a grand total of.....£37.50!! Not spent it all myself (got one piece for my mate) so personally spent £30 on £200 worth! Not a bad weeks shopping really!

2x Kramer VP-222RRP: £116 x2 = £232 Paid £7.50 each!
1x Rexton VS14 RRP: £40ish (can't find exact price!) Paid £7.50
1x VDC 15m VGA Cable RRP: £45 Paid £15

Nothing tool related unfortunatly :( My bargin sense seems to be technology driven!

And if all goes well in a couple of days i could stretch it to a total of £600 for just over £60....keeping my fingers crossed! :D

I like having friends willing to go halves with me on things like this!

ALSO

Spyderco Byrd Wings (http://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=301)

Spyderco had a similar knife they called a "DYAD" in both full size and junior.

That's a Japanese carving knife.  I can get them locally for a decent price if anyone is interested.

Its a Bear rebrand all right. Made plenty strong (although not as strong as dedicated tin snips obviously).  Nice thing about Bears is that they are built more solidly than most all other multitools.

Soon.

For now - description:

Same layout as Toolclip - though the File/Saw has a screwdriver end & the Bottle Opener has an unusual looking can opener/blade thing and wire stripper instead of screwdriver.

On the reverse side there is a Phillips of questionable use (it only pokes out slightly past the plier handle)

It has the same small flat head towards the front.

Overall quality seems adequate. Not in the league of "Big Brands", but better than some of the Leatherman imitations you see out there.

Logo is a bird beak thing with "ROC" next to it.

Other than "Stainless" on the main blade, there are no other markings.

Handle is black dimpled plastic.

It's the first in this style I've had, so other than eyeing off the quality of it, I'm rather enjoying the design, and might look towards getting the Jan-U-Wine article from one or another company with a Fixed-Plier design.

Oh yeah, and it is covered in rust.

On the reverse side there is a Phillips of questionable use (it only pokes out slightly past the plier handle)

It has the same small flat head towards the front.

Overall quality seems adequate. Not in the league of "Big Brands", but better than some of the Leatherman imitations you see out there.

Logo is a bird beak thing with "ROC" next to it.

Other than "Stainless" on the main blade, there are no other markings.

Handle is black dimpled plastic.

It's the first in this style I've had, so other than eyeing off the quality of it, I'm rather enjoying the design, and might look towards getting the Jan-U-Wine article from one or another company with a Fixed-Plier design.

Oh yeah, and it is covered in rust.

ok,well that seems intrestin tool,since i just love fixed plier tools.

Is your Carabiner Tool the older made-in-Japan model or the newer made-in-China model?

My older one is the Japan model whereas the newer one is China.. The quality IMO is the same though..

That's a relief to hear. Earlier reports suggested that the Chinese ones gave up a bit of quality.

How about the blue finish? Is it anodize or powder coat paint?

One of my best friends carries a Makarov concealed.  He likes it, but doesn't like trying to find 9x18 ammo.  I personally wouldn't carry it for that reason.

I should have said "find 9x18 ammo locally".  I'll point him to that site though DTH--thanks.

If I can't buy ammo for it at Walmart and every gun shop in town, I ain't carrying it.

Wow - you've no idea how weird it is for us Brits seeing you guys discuss hand-guns and EDC in the same sentence! I know it's perfectly normal for you guys, but it's kind of surreal to me. Ammo at Walmart  :o

The only guns I have ever had the opportunity to shoot air air-guns and shotguns. I've often wondered what firing a hand gun would be like.

Title: Re: What do we have on the way?
Post by: ducktapehero on September 04, 2008, 11:31:36 PM
I used to be a die-hard revolver guy. But I have never witnessed an auto as reliable as the Mak. This is the only semi-auto I've ever trusted enough that I would stake my life on. My Mak has never jammed, even with crappy cheap commie ammo. It loves it. It literally is the handgun equivalent to the AK rifle. Nothing fancy, just a stupidly reliable hunk of metal meant to work when yielded by completely untrained peasants.

It does suck that you can't get it a Wal-Mart but every gun shop around here carries it. Both the cheap FMJ crap and the American made HP stuff.

I've thought about how that might be for you guys, and I'm sure it must be quite strange. 

To DTH and myself, I guess it would be equally strange for us to think, "the only people carrying guns in public are police and criminals".

Now that I think about it, I probably carry a revolver more than I carry a multitool.  I carry a SAK more than either though.

Yeah, it's not that easy around here to find it for some reason.  He's been told by some stores that they don't have it and don't plan to carry it.

I hear you about the Mak's reliability, I don't think my buddy's has ever jammed and it's about 25 years old.  I've never had any jams from a Sig either, after many thousands of rounds of varied types and quality of ammo.

I don't carry a concealed weapon. I absolutely agree that we should have the right but I live in a very low crime and it was never a priority to get. Then my eyesight went to craps and now I don't even shoot anymore. I'm even thinking of selling Comrade Makarov. I haven't decided yet though.

Also a NIB Leatherman Mini. I bought it on ebay as used, but it's hardly been. The little piece of paper with the lanyard split-ring taped to it is still in the box! Really as good as new - so I'm chuffed with that.

My knifeless Fuse arrived on Saturday, along with some torx security bits, so that should keep me out of mischief for a while at least  :angel:
