Good Morning

SuperTool SATURDAY

  [ Quoting of attachment images from other messages is not allowed ]  

A BO ST 300 is selected for today, inspecting two Opinels, top is a Carbon that forming some pantina.

The other is a project, reshaping handle for my hands.

Trusty 112 and dependable Vic day packer.

Good morning, I hope your day is going well...

I dig the 4-dot 110 I bought new and am keeping my eye out for a 112 in 5160. However, I do like the new 112 Slim Pro TRX for a daily cardboard cutter upper, and I've come to like pocket clips for ease of access.

How do you like the HC blade on that Opinel? I won a mint early PST on eBay for like $7 with a broken blade and am thinking a 'close-in-size' Opinel blade may be worth considering as a potential donor.. someone on a FB Leatherman group mentioned it and I'm curious.

You've given me a great idea, especially since I've never held an Opinel knife. I do like Barlows quite a bit, so why would I not try this? Then I could kill two chickens with one stick, huh? Thank you.

The Carbon blade has been sharpen hair splitting sharp. To protect the blade I did a hour vinegar dip, then stropped.  Also, Opinel adds a yellow tint to the finish so the wood is darker on Carbon models.

If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Sorry, I missed this. Thanks. I'm going to order one and give it a shot.

Good pictures Shovelbill and Steve!  :like: :drool:

ST Saturday already this week!!!   :multi:

A OG SuperTool arrived mid week, my first, here is a picture in comparison to the ST300.

Poncho shared with me a You Tube link, and learned some cool things.

The OG SuperTool was the third tool made by LM,  the PST and Mini (?) preceded the ST.

The OG ST was the first tool with locking tools!

Interesting stuff!
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Your BO ST200 as the look of a RUGGED outdoors man. Very becoming of it character.

The slipjoint is looking good too!
