That would be awesome! But you could always make one yourself?

Magnifier and alox works great together

Not an explorer but close (woodsaw instead of scissors)

With a lot of help from the members here at MTO and my fathers words of "just try it! If it works it works and if it don't try something else" on repeat in my head

Here is a link to the build, or what lead up to it anyway

My early '80's gray frame.  It's definitely a user knife, but I like carrying it :D

I actually prefer the newer mag for field of view Tony, but I have a feeling that the gray frame might be a better fire starter.

Big fan of user knives, me. They've proven themselves and don't mind getting their hands dirty. I always have real trouble carrying immaculate knives.

I think this is my first contribution to the Explorer thread.  I bought this knife sight-unseen, described as "used, good working order."  I bought it for parts as I'm going to build a couple Yeomen and Scientists for family members.  This one arrived and it appears completely unused.  It's got a small-v VSSR shank and literally does not appear to have ever been used, right down to the remnants of the factory lubricant on the joints.  Way too nice to break apart so I'll be keeping and using it. 

Anyway, my kid had just made himself a big lumberjack breakfast so I grabbed a quick pic with the Explorer.  Fun stuff.

Everything in that picture is impressive in its own right, but put together in one shot and it needs to hang in a gallery somewhere for all to enjoy. Would you mind if I framed it and hung it on my wall? It is, in a word, inspiring.

I have an old Explorer build on the go at the moment - one that was properly abused and found in a tool box after about 20 years. Cleaned up nicely but it need new blades and I broke the scissors trying to straighten them! - Luckily got some help with those from kotskrappa and am now just awaiting some nice new yellow plus scales to finish it off. I love it and can’t wait to get it back to usable. Definitely be my edc when it’s done.
