I'm sure that's an overused play on words, but I like it!  Here are a few pics of a Weske bicycle knife to get things started off!

I was tempted to get one of these as it's a pretty sweet old tool.  Maybe next time I see one...

These pics were stolen from an eBay auction... there's actually a nice leather sheath that rotates around to cover the blade or handle depending on which part you are using at the time.  It looks like a great doodad for a mountain biker or LD cyclist who may need to make camp at some point.  Of course given the number of battles gravity wins with mountain bikers I think I'd try to get the leather replaced with kydex!

From what I recall the Weske was something from the immediate post WW 2 era.But judging from the blade shape it would have been a good complement to the Velo-dog pistols of the late 19th,very early 20th centuries.When cycling was all the rage.

That makes sense.  I have to say I really don't know much about the Weske myself, but it does look like an interesting tool.  I was a little concerned that it would be awkward when I first saw it, but when I found out the sheath was designed to be rotated to form a handle on either side it made more sense!

since you are doing all these tool ralated forums maybe you should make one dedicated to the most used tool companion

How long do you think it would take before a battle royale broke out between fans of Band-aids and Curads? :D BTW,my grand daughter taught me to appreciate the fine points of the Strawberry Shortcake decorated ones!

Now we know where the impetus for the SOG Revolver line came from

It does seem as though there has been a wagon load of new bike tools hitting the market in recent years. I don't own any (yet) myself, but they look interesting. Am I correct in thinking that there is even a model out there that has a small integral CO2 cartridge for re-inflating your tires?

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

The Blackburn-Airfix,although it does sound like the model airplanes when I was young !

That looks handier than the old pump I had affixed to my bike frame!

I've used CO2 cartridges on my road bike for years.  I think they're the best option for 120-140 psi tires.  Many of the portable (frame) pumps just don't cut it when you need that kind of pressure.  Just be sure you have the tire seated well before inflating w/CO2!!
