SAK inline phillips to the rescue for fixing a holster.

At the range today, I overheard a guy ask a couple friends if they had a screwdriver.  After hearing both friends say “no”, I volunteered the fact that I did.  The guy looks at me and says “you don’t, do you?”  I produce the SAK from my pocket to a shocked face.  After looking at it, I get “she has the tools”.
Well done!

In my opinion driving, manipulating and shooting wheel gun fast and well is much more trickier than bottom feeder. Long pull DA triggers, mechanically complicated reloads and limited capacity being the main reasons.

However, I also believe that as a self defence gun for person with limited experience/possibility to train/etc. a revo might be safer and better option.
Furthermore, in the hands of someone who knows his craft, a wheel gun can even this day and age of tactical tupperware be very, very effective tool. Business end of a say .357 mag or .44 is not a joke when the operator is on top of his game

I'm old, slow and left handed. Mr Slim Dusty might say 'he's getting kinda jaded, his sight is not the best and the hair around his muscles's turning gray..' so for me it is a question of style and panache ;)
Wheel guns are just cool in my book.

This afternoon I used the inline awl of my 97 Soldier to bore screw holes in cement board. Better than using a drill, I reckon.

OHT
Open three beers with the bottle opener
Cut tomatoes and a lemon with the knife
Removed a rusty nail from wood using the bottle owner as a prybar etc
Used a toothpick to clean the sak itself

And surprised to see Mr Slim Dusty recognised beyond this rather large island...

Nice. Part of my family is from Grimbergen (a million generations ago) and it was my great grandmother's maiden name.

Awl’s also make a great tack for fastening a template on drywall you are going to draw/cut around.  :tu:

I feel deep kinship with anyone that finds uses for the undersides of eye level wall cabinets Andes  shelves within them—the greatest expanse of undeveloped, free real estate in the world.

I really like that you keep your SAKs under the shelf and likely will be emulating you shortly. Thanks for sharing the SAK hanger idea.

What is the trick to make them stand up on the shelf?

In the interest of sharing, here is an old idea dating many generations back you probably already know, but on the chance you do not, here goes...

A friend keeps jars (uses jam jars with standardized lid diameter and varied bottle heights), washes them, re-labels them for category of contents, screws the lid to the undersides of his wall cabinet shelves over his work bench and screws and unscrews the jar to the affixed lid. He arranges them alphabetically. Every time he adds a new jar, he re-arranges the bottles to maintain alphabetized order. The guy can find every screw, bolt, nut, grommet, washer, picture frame hanger, staple, lag bolt, doo-dad, and so on, He even has a miscellaneous jar. He finds anything in 10 seconds, or knows he doesn’t have it. He swears by it. I have not imitated him, because the last ten years I have stopped building things from scratch, The few loose screws, etc. I just keep in a few coffee cans “on” a shelf. But now that I am re-starting building a few things, I am collecting my jars, and preparing to copy his inventory system.

Have a great day and thanks for sharing the SAK hanger. I may have even been inspired to frame in the hanging area and add a locking door. But then, I would want to see them and glass hardly would secure them. Maybe I will find some bullet proof glass, or go to the automobile junk yard and get some safety glass from cars and fashion a window frame that secures them from grand kids and thieves, yet lets me see them.

Thanks , my wife arranged the knifes so it looks nicer now
The trick to make them stand up is to hammer small pins(nail)  in the shelf.
The pins slide up I the toothpick slot

I take it that the OHT is a usual carry? The nail nick version was a favourite of mine for a while. Love the long blade and heavy duty locking flat SD.

My granddad was a huge fan of Slim Dusty and used to sing his songs in his dance band, way back from the 1940s to 1960s.

Well I have been to your rather large island before....

I picked up an affinity for folk music from all countries, and especially for Aussie bush music. I never made it up to the Plains of Peppiminarti, but I hear that every day's a Sunday there.....

But is there still a  dog in v’randa waiting for his master?

I stumbled into Slim Dusty a roundaboug way. My misspent youth contained a lot, and I mean a lot of reading. At some point I read Banjo Paterson and it went from there..

The cyber tool proved it could get down and dirty and analog by cutting open bags of potting soil, soil enhancer, compost and worm casings. I have to plant berry bushes is tomatoes in some old Oak aging barrels

I built a custom SAK about a month ago that is now my daily carry.  I've really enjoyed it.  I seem to use screwdrivers more than I think normal people do, due to my tinkering, makering, 80 year old house, etc.


Here it is tightening a loose door handle.  It's great to be able to just whip it out, screw around, and carry on. 











My Mods: 58mm Workshop, 91mm Picnicker, CyberCompact

Some Fav's: 74mm's in general, Salesman, Pocket Tool Chest, MiniChamp, CyberTool 34/M, Compact
Likely to pick up soon:  Cheese Master, something with a pruner blade
Always keeping an eye out:  stainless with guilloche, interesting inlay logos
If I had a few extra hundred $:  91mm with long file, Wine Master

Great work! I found too that the CT driver is the perfect tool for that type of door handle.  :tu:
