I find it to be a very good combination for urban EDC.

Jzmtl, how do you find the comparatively thin blade on the Centofante?

Yeah, it's a watchmaker's tool, but I'm not sure of the official name.

I find it's very nice for urban duty EDC knife, as long as you don't pry/twist/hammer with it, it can handle anything you want to cut. It's probably one of the least scary/most elegant knives spyderco has, I tried a few other knives for EDC but keep coming back to it.

Here's a youtube on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHNRxbzvhNw

That and I kinda moved on from the phase, as they really don't excite me anymore :-\


Imagine the aftermath of a car crash.  You discover that one of your arms is broken and you're dangling upside down in a jammed seatbelt harness.  You smell smoke and realize the car is burning...

Imagine falling off a boat and being dragged along by a line tangled around one arm...

Imagine one arm crushed in a jammed conveyor belt...

A one-hand-opening folding knife clipped to a pocket could save your life in these situations - and maybe in other situations that you can't forsee...

Imagine practicing saftey and common sense and avoiding all of these unnecessary accidents altogether. ::)

EDIT: Except for the car crash, but everyone should have some sort of saftey cutter thingy in there anyway, on a glass breaker or seperately. And how can you assure your knife can be drawn with your only good hand anyway?

Imagine working in a hazardous vocation, One Lame Frog - there are lots of people who do, just to put food on the table.

Imagine participating in a hazardous avocation like rock climbing, caving, or speed boating - there are lots of people who do, just for fun.

Imagine that you were a passenger in someone else's car that crashed and they don't have a 'safety cutter thingy' in the car.  Yet, you still have a broken arm and are still trapped by a jammed safety harness, and the car is still burning...

As you feel your body start to burn, you can smugly congratulate yourself for not succumbing to a silly fad like carrying a one-hand accessible blade...

Guess I should have posted that before I started on the beer  :D

As for opening up a bear with my Sebbie . Now that would make a good thread with pics  :D

Might want to learn to open a knife one-handed, whether or not the knife is one-handed:

I love melodrama as much as the next guy, but I'm still going to carry my two-hand-opening folder :)



I can certainly imagine the big bloke I'll be bunking with after the coolfactor of a one-hand-opener gets me in trouble next time I'm on the turps  :D

Everyone has to chose what eventualities they want to plan for. Some chose to not plan for anything, others try to plan for everything. Most people fall somewhere in between. You obviously feel a one handed folder to be necessary. Not everyone does. For some it may be a liability. Personally I don't think its necessary. They can be handy sometimes, but in 37 years, I've never needed one. I know that doesn't mean I won't, but I don't think its likely I will.

As for hazardous occupations and hobbies...I've done both in the past and not needed one. My dad made it through WWII and Korea without one. My Maternal Grandfather survived working on a farm and a railroad yard as well as doing things like hunting in Alaska without one. My Paternal Grandfather survived working on a farm and WWI without one.

I'm not saying that one handed folders are bad. I have a few I like. Saying that they are necessary, unless you're shy a hand, or that someone will burn alive because he doesn't like them or carry them is just plain silly.

So apparently... before one-hand opening came about everyone in these situations immediately died?

Sorry, I think you're being a bit dramatic and far reaching there.
The best saftey you can have is another person.

EDIT: Wearing a saftey harness in a car crash and still having your arm broken... I'd imagine you'd be in no shape to do anything.

OK...  so... back on topic.

Today I'm trying a new EDC.  A SOG Pocket Power Plier and a Vic/Scibeer YoMan.  It seems to be a great combo.

The term "EDC" really doesn't apply to tools for me.  I switch up what I carry depending on the tasks that I'm likely to encounter.

My EDC MT while on duty is the LM SURGE.. And that's not changing anytime soon.. But, I rotate a lot when I am not working.. Lately I have been switching off between, LM Charge TTi, Vic SwissTool RS, SOG Powerlock 2.0, and the like..

I don't know Nezza. More a watchman's tool, maybe!

Yeah, it's a watchmaker's tool, but I'm not sure of the official name.

(Image removed from quote.)


Wenger Watch Case Opener
   
A few Wenger knives include a watch case opener.

It's similar to the small blade, but it's not as sharp, and has a more rounded profile so it works better at prying apart the case of a Swiss watch.

This is a generally useful blade, and you will probably also find other uses for it.

Why do I carry a 45 ?
Because they don't make a 46 !
