Carrying the trusty Compact today posing with its most used tool of the day. The combo tool is surprisingly useful and enough for 99.9 % of my everyday prying and screwdriving needs.

I've tried to fall in love with the Sportsman lately, but whenever I have a full opener layer in my pocket, I realize that the Combo tool would have done the job as well and that I'd rather have scissors in a two layer knife.

I've been doing an Alox challenge so I'll have an Alox as a companion for the rest of the month.  Most of the time a Super Tinker is my daily carry.

Carrying the Soldier today along with its companion the Signature. I can't go without scissors, tweezers, a pen and a nailfile. That's why I always have a 58mm companion in my fifth pocket when carrying an Alox model.

I will say, though, that I've gotten away from feeling like I need scissors and scale tools. An Executive on a neck lanyard could always be added if I change my mind. The SAK pens and I have never really bonded.

I always carry a pen with me so I don't need the SAK pen.  That and it feels so tiny in my hand.

The tweezers I definitely use often enough that I like to carry them.  You'd think I'd learn to use gloves more often so I don't splinters or metal slivers in my hand.   :facepalm:

Scissors, I was still on the fence about them until I rationalized that I could use them instead of the knife for cutting stuff up like address labels off a package.  Using the scissors saves the edge on my knife for bigger things.  That and I like the look on people's faces when I whip out the scissors.   :D

I don't wanna go too far off topic but I don't use the tweezers often. However I consider them an absolute necessity for me, because when you need them, you need them. I live in an area where ticks can transmit some serious diseases. So whenever I spot one on my son or myself I am glad that I can remove it immediately and don't have to look out somewhere for a pair of tweezers.

But back to topic: I almost forgot to take a picture but technically it still qualifies for 'SAK and coffee' as there is still some left  ;)  Todays carry is my BYSAK, which is in pretty good shape for a 28 year old knife!  ::)

Coffee with my Companion. This knife has quickly become my favorite in terms of utility for everyday use. Emotionally my favorite is the Alox Soldier model, but for my daily needs it's not the most practical one (has to be paired with a 58mm Signature).

Thanks! That is a Kaweco Sport Aluminium fountain pen. It's actually a pocket pen, however I use it as my main fountain pen at home and at work. I don't carry it in my pocket. It's about 10 cm closed and if you open it and put the cap on the tail it's basically a regular sized pen.

I own several fountain pens and this is my favorite. It does not dry out quickly (several weeks or a couple of months) and it's great to write with.

Nice looking FP.  I have several but the one I use for work tends to dry out quickly.  It was an anniversary present from the wife so I try to use it as often as I can, which isn't that often seeing as how I'm on a computer most of the day.

I have to admit that I don't use it very often as well. That's how I found out that it can be left unused for months without drying out  :D

Morning coffee with my carry knife for the day

Late afternoon coffee. The only tool used so far today was the screwdriver to unlock and lock some doors of a cabinet. We have to keep all doors closed and locked at toddler height for obvious reasons. Good thing is that the cabinets don't need a special key, a screwdriver is enough.

Afternoon coffee with today's special carry - my birth year Wenger. Not much use so far. Only the large blade was used to open some food and the tweezers to remove a hair.

Is that a hand-cranked grinder?

Correct, that's a Comandante MK3 hand grinder. It is one of the best grinders in terms of quality and particle size distribution (if that matters to you  :D ) Believe it or not, I actually enjoy the physical engagement versus just pushing a button on a electric grinder. :D

Chose the Compact for today!
