Don’t forget about the pocket clip - add a few millimeters as well, though give much more usage comport at the same time

Congrats on a new tool Have you checked the liner locks? Make sure yours doesn’t have those issues mine did, especially with the saw. I fixed it easily, but had to disassemble the tool

Other than that it’s a hell of a tool. Can take a lot of beating I believe

Awesome, maybe LM figured out a way to fix that once and for all

Btw guys how do you sharpen your Signal blades? It has uneven bevels and has serrations too - every time I look at it and thinking of using the blade I change my mind because I’m not quite sure how to maintain it right

I love using a simple Victorinox 4.3323 pocket sharpener for my Work Champ and Forester - real quick and easy to make them razor sharp.
Though it won’t work with Signal’s strange blade geometry. Maybe there is some similar simple solution?

Maybe a tapered diamond sharpener for the serrations :think:

Similar to this :cheers:

It is a bit of a chore.

I use a Lansky diamond and ceramic rod system for the front non-serrated bit. I cover the serrations with some tape to make sure I don't accidentally "sharpen" them too. I then reverse the tape and use a triangular ceramic stone for the serrations. After all that a few strops and it is good to go.

I go slow when I sharpen it, same as with the MUT. Both sides of the blade is hair popping sharp.

Cheers, Pete

Thanks for the hints, gents
I do like the tool overall, do like the strong thick blade, the tent pole hammer and ability to take a pan off the fire with pliers, but man do I hate the combo blade
