  • More than one SAK
  • SAKs you don’t need, not on a list, and impulse buys
  • Duplicates/backups
  • Purchases you need to hide from your wife/significant other

I’m somewhere down the line at: “I forgot I even had one (some number) of those!”

  • More than one SAK   - Check. Most definitely.
  • SAKs you don’t need, not on a list, and impulse buys   - Check. Dear God, check.   :facepalm:
  • Duplicates/backups   - Check. Oh, yes.   :(
  • Purchases you need to hide from your wife/significant other   - Not at this one yet! Probably because I get most of my SAKs used and cheap.   :D

SAKs:
58mm: Bijou (3), Classic SD (6), Cavalier, Mini Champ Plus (mod), Alox Classic SD, Rambler (2), Companion
65mm: Wenger Esquire

- Not at this one yet! Probably because I get most of my SAKs used and cheap.   :D

Oh, I buy a lot of used and cheap ones…I’ve found that I’m better off getting multiple at a time. Generally  saves on shipping…but more importantly, is only one package that comes in the mail!  :D

So true, Kamakiri! :rofl:
  :D we should expand the list!  :whistle:



And for example…a box came in from Victorinox today. It’s reasonable to think there’s only one knife in there…right? No need to say anything about ‘maximizing’ the benefit from a 10% off coupon they sent me, right?  :dunno:

Even the title of this thread…operates under the assumption that normal people order one knife at a time. I usually can’t tell you what my singular latest SAK is.  :rofl:

If that's true, I ain't normal at all! When buying brand-new, unless the knife is over $100 or I need related items (sharpening gear, knife rolls, etc.), I'm gonna order at least two knives. Victorinox makes that easy with low prices and free shipping on orders of at least $50.

By the way, according to that scale, I'm a 3-3.5.

Current SAKs: too many to list in a mere 512 characters.

So you only hide your purchases sometimes?  :)

When I worked in an office, I could just send packages there.  :D

So much fun to get a new SAK.  I wonder if you'll like the one layer thinner Climber, or if you'll prefer the Explorer.  :dunno:

I went to one of the local pawn shops and found this amongst the detritus. It glowed like the heavens, and I couldn't ask the guy to come over and give me some help fast enough. When he eventually came over and showed me the knife, I could not believe my eyes. This had a 9 dollar price tag glued on it. On average, anything celidor starts at 30 dollars and goes up from there. I guess they didn't have a clue as to what they had. I found it a loving home. No box, but looks like it was never used. I had to clean the blade a little due to dried oil.

I carried a Super Tinker before I got hooked on the Explorer, so I'm very familiar with three-layer SAKs. I actually find three layers to be the most comfortable SAK size in hand.

I carried a Camper, (also 3-layers) for 5 years.  I agree it's a comfortable size.

Not technically my latest SAK...

I got a used Rambler about a week ago, but finally had time to clean and mod it today. I added a pin slot.

I picked up this Wenger Esquire a few weeks ago at a junk shop for $3 US.

Finally got around to cleaning it tonight. The scales have some scuffs on them, but it still has the toothpick and tweezers!

Got gifted a Tinker from our local switchboard building company. Stoked as it replaces the one I gifted to my middle son a year or so ago.

I had a good day at the local estate sales and junk shops a couple of weeks ago.

I got the old survivor Companion at an estate sale for $2 US. Looks like the previous owner enjoyed it as the blade has been resharpened a lot. Also, looks like he snapped off the tip of the nail file and turned it into a slotted screwdriver. The scales don't look as good as they do in the photo. There's a fair amount of wear on the edges.

The black Classic SD I got at a local junk shop. It's a promo for Oklahoma Natural Gas. $10 for it, a Leatherman Crunch with a Heritage leather sheath, and a Leatherman Leap. None of them look like they'd been used.
