So I lost my Skeletool standard.It’s been my EDC for 2 years... And going back to a SAK spartan just wont cut it anymore.The last two months have sucked Searching every nook & researching and looking for a suitable replacement tool...I even trawled where we set up on the beach for surf sessions... went and handled the rebars, crunch, The new P2 and P4’s which just somehow suck cause they way overpriced... the free SX even started checking out the SOGs... But somehow they just didn’t sit right in the hand.... was about to hit buy on a SOG powerpint and a medium Honeybadger straight edge flipper when I lost my card down the side of our leather recliner... flipped the whole thing over and blow me over with a feather!!. part tucked, part clipped to the inside of an interior hem was my missing Skele!!! .... couldn’t have been more stoked than if it was a returning pet!That was yesterday...24 hrs later armed with a Dremel, some frogz Eggs and a need to Customise my precious EDC so it can’t slip into someone else’s pocket...This is what I’ve come up with.Rem pocket clip - ergonomicsSolid carabiner - feelLandy press-studs - personalityMag bit holder extension - for 4x4 and Bike workI’ve grown to love the 420C combo blade... being able to whittle a branch and cut through synthetic tow rope one-handed whilst chassis deep in marsh is a thing of beauty a straight edge blade just doesn’t pull off quite so effortlessly.I’d love a diamond file though... anyone pulled off a Skeletool SX with a spare bit holder mod? That might just the perfect tool...Else I’ll just have to save for a crunch when the going gets tough...
I absolutely love the photo of Tim standing in front of his Bridgeport Mill and I think you are the very lucky owner of a signedpiece of history.
I think you can buy them through Shapeways and I believe they have a European site as well
