I'm checking in today as well. Swisschamp has been my regular carry these last few months, it's a non threatening tool to carry, especially with my dozens of hospital and clinic visits these last few months. Long story short, getting a tumor removed and then after that's done I have to get a second round of back surgery on L3, L4 and L5. Needless to say I haven't been on a good mood for a while, but seeing the posts here keep me in decent spirits.
Thank you both Jim and Barry, I appreciate it. The way I look at it, it's not for me to understand God's plan in life, we just have to roll with it!
Regarding SwissChamps, I need to get another one! I want to get one in rough condition I can keep and carry without feeling like I need to sell it.
I remember those days Toolguy, and you're right. Now, that's probably the best investment money wise anyone could make given what you got in return!
Functional is the keyword for me Jim. I've had some collector pieces over the past few years, but I've pretty much moved them on. I like to use mine!Speaking of which, I had some mag glass fun with mine today. No success, but smoke from a dried leaf!
I like the best mags Tony. The field of view isn't terrific, but I'm convinced that I can get a fire going with one of the Sun and the tinder are right. I went from having no gray frames to having only gray frames, purely by accident.
