I have a couple of NIC Fast & Furious MTs (promo re-brand of the Stanley Auto-plier) on their way from the US to down-under (hopefully)

I have ordered a Surefire fury intelibeam for myself for Xmas. Despite paying extra for priority delivery a few days ago, amazon.com are yet to despatch.  :twak:

My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

I have a SwissTool Plus on the way. It look like a '98 model, new in box. A fairly cheap one so I'm quite happy!

It will be replacing the one I bought second hand in... 2000? That one is completely abused and b0rked  :ahhh

Bought another '98 model. Looks unused in the pics :whistle:

I was wanting to see how the Free T2 stacked up to my Crater C33T, and SAKs of course; so I bought one for $21 shipped.

A Zebrawood small Techtool, I would have preferred the one that had a screwdriver/opener thing but blade and scissors isn't too shabby  :tu:

Around this time the kids alwasy ask what I want.  I am always left wondering for days thinking about that question  :dunno:.  I do want to check out a panama style hat.  I could use some new sneakers.  I enjoy finding tools at the fleamarket so much that I always tell them dont buy me anything toolwise.  Several years ago I would have had such a want list.  When I seach online I see things yet I am not tempted other than  :drool:

I do love seeing all you have coming in  :woohoo:

I'd cancelled the Gerber NXT order when I put in the Free T2 order. Found the same seller had the Suspension NXT for $15, about $10 less than I paid on Amazon, so I decided to order it. The Free hasn't shipped yet, so I should get these two together. This will replace a Workpro I use as a beater tool when working around others. The Workpro has awful scissors, and is insanely heavy.
With decent Fiskars scissors, a lighter frame, and a pocket clip, the Suspension is much better for beater tasks which might wreck a good tool.  And $15 made it cheaper than the Workpro it was replacing.

I got one in a used lot of knives recently, and the size is perfect. 8 and bigger are too big; #6 too small. Anything smaller I don't want, since Opinel doesn't have Vibroloc rings on those. I tried a #2 at a local knife store and found the blade a little too easy to close on its own.

I tried ordering a Gerber Legend. There was some issue. So I went to the next one that interested me. Skeletool RX. More issues, but at least this time its only delayed and not unavailable.

The US importer of Mikov (a Czech-made knife), mainly a seller of woodworking tools, had a 75% off sale, presumably for Black Friday or to clear out slow-moving stock. I really didn't go too nuts but marked off 75% of the Mikov on my list. In a few days, I should have a bit more funds, so will focus on the nicer models, and some Christmas gifts for my friends who are also knife nuts. I hope they're still on sale then. Even with all this stuff, I paid just $40. There's two I forgot to add; that in total are just under $20, that I've asked the seller to add to the order and send me a total for separately. 

Sorta SAK clones:

Mikov 100-NH-8A KP Stovka. Their take on the Super Tinker, but at $12. The Stovka line uses old Adler tools, which were the same ones Schrade marketed in the 1990s as their Discovery line. This was bought as a pocket tool for messing with model trains. The smaller pliers fit into some tight spaces deep in those locomotives. But, I don't like the claw can opener. Especially when most of my Marklin need the SD tip on the regular SAK can opener to remove the shell. I wonder if their corkscrews will fit the micro driver.




Mikov 115-NH-6 AK Orange Praktik Folding Pocket Knife. Wanted one with a saw, since I have a smaller model with just openers and blade. At the big discount, it was cheaper than the "just blade and saw" option on Amazon; and gives me a good all-arounder. There's a model with Phillips instead of CS (which due to the claw can opener, I have to have) that I meant to get instead (but didn't as I thought it was just the CS model with black handles); but that's next order. Mikov 111mm have a handle swell that 111mm SAKs don't making them more ergonomic. And, the liners are steel, not aluminum. Oddly, my round hole 111mm GAK is the only modern 111mm I have with substantial liners---the rest are paper thin.





Mikov 101-NH-6P Stovka. The practical hobo. You have the split-apart style, you have the fork. But, you don't have a spoon, and you have a screwdriver; two things not typical of Hobo knives. The stuff you eat with a spoon is usually messy. I carried my old Coghlan's Hobo going to community college, and since I mostly ate soups and stews (as well as Chef Boyardee pasta) in microwaveable bowls, it made mess out of the knife, requiring daily cleaning. I prefer to carry a separate spoon, which is easier to clean.



Hunting knives.

Mikov 376-NH-1 Z Skaut Dagger. Blade is 5 1/2" long and 425SS. A bit too big (my fixie limit is 5" blade), but I've always thought fixed blades with a saw back looked cool. The saw teeth on this one should be effective for wood cutting, as opposed to the intended aluminum on the USAF Jet Pilot Survival Knife. This I bought sorta to reward myself for letting a lot including a M1917 Bolo, a WWII Kabar, and a 1960s Schrade Deerslayer go, even though the bolo was rare, because it went past my lowball limit.



Includes a nice leather sheath as well.

https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/knife_forum/download/file.php?id=490002&mode=view

Mikov Fixir; with saw, gutting blade, and locking spear blades. I made a couple of mistakes; one I meant to get the four-layer model, which the seller I didn't notice had. And, the seller, for about $10 more, had genuine stag or ram's horn offerings. I asked the seller to add the four-layer model; and I'm adding the stag and ram's horn offerings to my next order.



The four-layer model adds openers and a corkscrew.




Both should include a leather sheath. I wonder if it will fit 111mm SAKs? Because the GAK is based on traditional German-pattern hunting knives, it should at least fit the GAK and Hunter.




My order was $40; and the seller had a small list of free items to choose from for orders over $35. I chose the drill bits, as one, they were $19 by themselves, and I needed good drill bits. I only have cheap crappy Dewalt, Harbor Freight, and Lowe's Kobalt bits.  I mostly use a manual "egg beater" type drill (1950s Miller's Falls 2-A) for most woodworking, only grabbing cordless drills for longer, drawn out construction tasks and my corded drills for heavy-duty drilling through metal and concrete, or thick pieces of wood; which are typically hard on most cordless drills. My folks 12V Hitachi can't even drill a hole for a farm gate hinge in a common post. The 18V Dewalt will, however. My corded 5/8 Hitachi eats jobs like that for lunch.

Colt & Riss Tools 10701812 Twin Land Brad Point Drill Bit Set 1/8" to 1/2" 7 Pieces in Pouch. These are made in France, so they should be good.

SNOW!
It’s been going since yesterday night, it originally started as rain then changed to snow, then back to rain, then to 50/50 but then as it later in the day and got cooler it switched over to 100% snow and then started to stick! Should stop in about 3hrs but it looks like we got about 3in, wonder what we’d be up to if it stayed at 100% since the beginning? Probably a good 10in

Spyderco Roadie. I've wanted one since long before we even did the Spyderco challenge; and at $56, I figured it was time to pull the trigger.

I've ordered one of these; https://heinnie.com/nite-ize-pock-its for the Batman Challenge in January, as it dawned on me that, whilst I have a number of Bat-Belt/Vest/Pouch options, for work etc, I don't have a set up for my non work EDC  :ahhh

I have never used (needed) this type of thing so I have no idea how it'll work out.

I would prefer leather but, the options are just too much for my tiny brain to process (Yes I've looked on Etsy, et-al)

If anyone has some actual personal recommendations for UK based suppliers then please shout out  :pok:

I'm looking for pocket (front or rear) carry and NOT belt/clip stuff (unless removable  :think: )

Just needs to hold a SAK (Alox 93mm, 4 Layer) LM (PST/Rebar) and a small torch (Fenix 01) I do not want, or need, to carry a pen!

Cheers all  :cheers:

I had set a budget of $75 and one knife for Spyderco's online factory second sale today. I ended up spending $127 (though, I could have spent $150, got free shipping, and a few more knives) and getting three knives. The Para 3 and Native 5 LW were really high on my list, and at $66 and $37 prices respectively, I couldn't resist. They weren't in the exact configurations I wanted (I was looking at some of the more exotic steels, and colorful handles; and camo for the Para 3), but at least they are the models I wanted.  Took me three hours of trying, and so many server errors (mostly timeout errors) I lost count about an hour in.

Borrowed photos from other retailers. Spyderco's website is still acting weird.


Para 3 Black G10/Black S30V blade.



Native 5 LW, Black FRN/ComboEdge S30V




And a Byrd Robin 2 with stainless handles. The same size as the Dragonfly, so I think I'll like it. At $11, I couldn't say no.
