Yep...got bored and decided to show what lurks in another collection drawer.



I not only keep a few of my SOG empty boxes in here along with a few empty sheaths, but mixed in are a few pieces of hardware as well.

For instance, this crappy Police Security multi-tool. It's extreme skeleton frame allows an unwary user to cut themselves even when the blades are stowed away. Got to love engineering ingenuity at its best. This came as a set wtih a small flashlight...and Police Security is a Walmart brand.


A somewhat generic cheap multi-tool billed as an archery tool.


A fancy wooden handled Coleman branded multi-tool.


Meet the Hockey Tul. I can only surmise that Tool was already copyrighted. Comes with a skate sharpener stone, a few extra screws, and the um...er...Tul itself.


A World Famous old style multi-tool.


A Walter electrical tool.


A Sheffield Buck copy.


When I first joined up back in 2009, I got these from Grant.


This highly interesting survival kit that stores in a hard plastic case. The black square tube contains fishing kit, first aid kit, driver bits, and other survival odds and ends.


NcStar AR15 Tool.


Taylor Brands S&W Armorers tool.


This BO BuckTool.


Real Avid Duck Commander Edition Gun Tool.


Real Avid Gun Tool.


Real Avid Ruger Edition Gun Tool.


Real Avid Gun Pro Tool.


Real Avid AR Gun Pro Tool.


Real Avid Turkey Tool.


Real Avid Multi Cutter.


A pair of Real Avid Apple Archery Tools.


Two of these...one in a nice aluminium presentation case. Both tools are identical.


A small RedLine flashlight.


This Lansky tool.


The infamous Camillus Les Stroud tool.


Schrade Tough Chip in red, blue, and green.






Schrade Navitools. One being the digital I-Quip version. I also have one made by Taylor Brands LLC.


That concludes another segment of "what lurks in that drawer"!

I love these little expeditions.  :tu:

But... you really need to be an avid enthusiast or utterly clueless to buy some of those...

It just so happens this is the drawer that contains the Real Avid gear. I am a collector, and with that said, I have taken the Gun Tool for a few trips to the club, and although it wasn't exactly my cup of tea, I wouldn't call it terrible either.

Steinar...try to keep your comments less personal please. I take umbrage to being called utterly clueless.

I don't think it was a personal jab Chako :tu: I believe he was generalizing how specific some of the designs were :cheers:

Nice pics as always and the electrician tool looks like a Bear and Sons tool either copy or rebranded :think: What think you about it?

If you are not an enthusiast, who of us qualifies? In other words, the comment was about two distinct categories where the members were not overlapping. I.e. either enthusiast or clueless.

My comment was certainly not intended as an insult, and I am sorry for any hurt I may have caused.

No worries Steinar. I am well aware how things can be misconstrued online. I do thank you for the clear up. My apologies.  :salute:

Poncho65. I agree that it is based on a Bear & Son model.

Another interesting batch of stuff.   :cheers:

Why is the Camillus Les Stroud infamous?

Is the S&W Armourers Tool any good?

Whelp, it looks like I am going to read up on the 17 pages of travesty that is the LS tool, now.

I love your pictures and cataloging as always, Dan. :salute:

ColoSwiss, the tool  is ok for what it is. It does offer quite a few different punches that might be useful in the right hands. The tool however is let down by the weak magnet and how the various punches just slide in rather loosely into the end hole...not to mention the whole thing is just big enough to make it slightly awkward to use. This is the universal kit. There is another model more rifle geared that have some punches in duplicates. I went for variety if I had to have one represented.

Sazabi...that is a good thread read. I think you will enjoy it.  :D

Whenever I see my copy, I can't help but think of long rifles, explosives, Lynn, and Harley.

Thanks for the info on the S&W; think I'll pass.

Remembered the situation, not the model.   :cheers:

Hey! As a bonus, it was made by Taylor Brands LLC!

That fact alone should sell you one ColoSwiss.  :D
