Got my Vic Spriit in today from Tim as well.
OH my! Is it ever nice.
My first impression was confusing while trying to open the blades. Then I realized the thump nicks where on opposite side on the same side. Weird. But If I can get used to opening up a LM or SOG then this is a snap.
My second impression was the scissors. I thought it was to small. Then I tried it on my beard and toe nails. Wow, It works great. Now my only concern is the slick phillips I have read so much about. I will have to try it out and see if it as slippery as everone says it is..
SOG Powertool top. Spirit bottom:
Leatherman KIck on the left. Spirit on right.
Look how much wider the SOG has to open up:
SOG and LM Kick:
The best part I like is the can opener on the Vic Spirit. Its the only one that I can use effeciantly. Probably from so many years of using them on Vics.
AND finally here are the phillips on the SOG, LM and Vic. I was shoked to see the LM I bought had rust on it. I purchased the LM two months ago and put it into my car console. It has been sitting there untouched ever since . Rust all over it.
Guess it true about the LM's rusting. This knife had no contact with sweat, water . Just good old georgia humidty in July/August.
Acually you cannot see the rust to well on this side. There was a lot more on the other side of the LM. I will get a pic later and post it.
