Bought a small bit/socket wrench set by Dexter. Very compact, sturdy, has the more common bits and sockets, has an extender and a ratchet. The ratchet is quite strong and it holds the bits without any play. The case is awlso sturdy. Thought about putting the contents in a smaller pouch, but they are so well packed that I think I'll keep them in the originawl case.

Shown with Compact for size comparison.

A little of something of mine came in today, it’s not a multitool or sak, but it is kinda a everyday,,
I was making 2gal of homemade iced tea every like week, but I was also drinking it nonstop, so I kinda just cut it and went to water, but I kinda like a simple something diff for dinner, so I found this, rather then tossing 5 tea bags in a huge pot and boil them, then waiting for the stuff to cool down even after dumping ice in it, I still couldn’t have any till like the next day, so this little simple kit, you pour only so much water in, then pour it in the machine, throw a tea bag in, then fill the pitcher to the other line with ice, then just let it do it’s job and you have iced tea in under like 10min.. yeah it’s not 2gal, but it will be four dinner drinks for me then just an easy make for next time..

Kid got a little something a little old school for his bday, he went vinyl, so we got him a special player, even plays cd’s, and has a radio.. I must say I’ve never heard vinyl and we set it up in the living room to just get it going and the next thing you know both the Mrs and I were just sitting on the couch totally relaxed, she was saying she could go for a glass of wine and sit back, I was like wow..

A doorknob. The little ratchet should excel at getting in such a tight space.

Nice tool kit, and cool record player, too! :tu:

My first Wenger. :)
 

Blade is over sharpened, corkscrew loose as smurf, something weird happens with the bottle opener to make it jam occasionally on opening and closing, and back scales are chipped.
Was supposed to be mod fodder, using the inline phillips for "3 in 1" opener layer on 84mm.

And yet... I have a Wenger Commander on the way. If I transplant its blade, outer liners and scales on to this Wenger, along with replacing the pins, it'll go from being tired & [ab]used to used & ready for action...
 :facepalm:
Wanted mod fodder, got new potential EDC Wenger Motorist.
 :facepalm:
Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Love those clip points! I don't understand why Vic doesn't use them for the small blade, so we can have two different shapes.

 :whistle:

Didn't need to break a doorknob. This pot's lid just broke, I usewd the ratchet to remove the screw. I had to hold the plastic bit with the Juice, but the ratchet worked like a charm.

I awlso had to use the Juice to remove the bit. It was held extremely tight, no fear of loosing any bit I put there.

Good to hear the little ratchet did well for itself. I really should get such a set for myself.

But today is not that day. I did get another five narrow frame SAKs, though. The one in the middle is a Wenger with the small clip point blade. A big thanks to Sneider for sending them my way! :cheers:

I couldn’t be happier - finally a completely new tool from our beloved Swiss company

A brilliant all in wonder Swiss Army Panicker - as the ad says, wear it with pride anywhere you go, blow for help whenever you feel scared, pinch yourself to stay awake and conscious and keep panicking for as long as you like

At only 199£ I pulled the trigger the moment I saw it



P.S.: happy April 1st, gentlemen
