Most excellent write-up, your NeuroPsychoMagneticus. :salute:  Although I do question the accuracy of your report somewhat (rusty Leathermans, pfft ::)) it was riveting nonetheless. :D


Now quit with the inside jokes and give us some more pictures! :pok: With captions this time! :twak: :D

A Spirit is a very sensible choice and very capable . What are your thoughts on the full size Swisstool ? I understand Mike came away with another one  :D

Tool pics weren't high on the agenda, we were considering a whole meetup tool shot but figured we'd still be there putting Dave's leathermans away! I might have a few more i'll have a look when i get home this evening :)

This looks like too much fun guys! I have got to make it to that midwest US meet sometime this summer! I will try to chronicle it half as well as you have done Micky D :P I also will have to hammer out plenty more mods before then as well :D Oh and perhaps, following Scibeer's suit (as it went down in Sacramento), I will have to bring all of my modding supplies and make something there :climber:

A hot temper and a love of axes is always a good combination  >:D

Personally I've got my eye on a nice Gransfors Bruks...never thought I'd fall for a pocket axe but MickyD's is a dream  :viking:
