Québec knife
« on: March 21, 2013, 10:18:05 PM »
I picked up this swiss army knife "inspired" souvenir in Quebec a few years ago.


Handles: No problem here, they are wood which many members like. They have two exposed rivets, but I am sure that they are just pressed into the handles and aren't the ones actually holding the knife together. This is easy to tell when you realize that they don't align with the tool pivots.
Blade: Usual sak copy blade shape. It came duller than other sak copy blades. The tip is also slightly rounded and not sharp at all.
Scissors: Again average for a sak copy. They can cut thin things but are a big let down with no much more than paper. However, I have to compliment that this knife has some of the most precise scissors I've seen on a sak copy
Can/bottle opener: The bottle opener is small and the screwdriver on it is little. The can opener is COMPLETELY useless because it is not sharpened at all what so ever.

Corkscrew: It is small and shaky, wouldn't trust it!
Nail cleaner/file: This tool is actually fine, there wasn't much to mess up there
Philips driver: Has a lot of play and is probably the worst I've seen on a sak copy. It is SUPER thin. This picture doesn't do the thinness justice.

Overview: This knife is a souvenir. That is all it will ever be! I would not try to carry it and the only time I have used it was opening a package from the same store as it. Wood scales are nice though. And don't bring any cans on a trip with this because it was the worst can opener I have ever seen!

Here's a cross-link to the 'Swiss Army STYLE knife' thread.

I like the rustic craftsman style handles. It's a shame they're on a POS chinese knife.

I have seen that thread before and have two of those sak copies. This knife is equal in some ways and worse to them in others.

That looks an awful lot like my Nova Scotia knife:

Man, those wood handles look boss compared to what Coghlan has.

The wood handles look nice but are a little sticky, with no way of getting rid of it... kinda scary wondering what is on them

The stickiness is, clearly, the tacky veneer of high-class livin'.
