Nice.  This is very much in line with what this thread was supposed to be about--the combos and why we carry those particular items together.

Now it's just, "here's a pic of the combo that's in my pocket!" which isn't so bad, but it would be nice for users to discuss why they chose them specifically.

That's why I drifted away from this thread, because it just became "what combo are you carrying today". For what it's worth my favourite combos are probably the same as what I first showed buried in this thread about 80+ pages ago :D

My Fuse-ilier and friends did most of the work at the UK meet, and notching a pole for a gas lantern this weekend was actually the first time the Fuse-ilier saw had ever been used.  :ahhh The yellow Climber Small and KF4 are the lighter weight outdoors pairing for when I don't fancy lugging round the full bright orange ensemble. Both combos are the primary choices for out walking or camping.

The MP426 mod still pairs well with a slippy, as does the Spirit X with a Swiss knife with Phillips. The TurboDiesel mod and Soft Touch 14 (sometimes with a modern clipped folder too) are another rock solid combo. The MP6000 mod, DEsTroyer mod, and Schrade Vise Grip LC6 are a toolbox combo which don't get regular carry, but get brought out when the tasks call for more than a regular tool can handle.

The Sideclip pairs beautifully with any Swiss knife that doesn't have a Phillips, as does the Neutered Octane mod, and the Knifeless Wave mod plus a Cybertool is a good catch-all combo if I'm away from home for any length of time, and don't fancy carrying a locking bladed Spirit. Despite all this, the combo most likely to be on me at any time is my keyring set up or my neck lanyard array.

I will do a little mixing and matching on a whim, but those combos are all tried and tested in terms of function, weight/bulk, and social acceptance where applicable. It takes a lot of the headache out of choosing tool combos when you know that such pairings work together so well.

Nice one, 50ft, and mine are very similar to what they were 10 years ago as well. It's obvious that I'm not the only sick-o that puts so much thought into it.

But where are the pics?  ???

I usually always put thought into the SAK that I carry with my MT ;) It just seems I become stuck with certain SAKs for periods of time every now and again :cheers: I carry my Master Ranger quite often as it pairs well with most any MT (well to me it does :D ) and if a MT has a bit more then I will carry either an Executive or a 58mm SAK with that :salute:

As today I carried an Executive and a Wave :tu: I really do like the size of the Executive and it has a very great toolset and disappear in my pocket whilst still being very handy when needed :tu: I think the Executive pairs very nicely with most of my MTs as well :like:

firstly, NUTSAK thank you for starting this thread,  :hatsoff: it's a very good one with so much variation of carries, tools and combos that I believe it has no competition on all of the internet for SAK+MT pairings  :cheers:

secondly, I am guilty of posting the pic for the day and leaving it at that... :facepalm:
But it's mostly because my combos change very week, and even in-between the week too,

I love varying and going through all my stuff.

Mostly my criteria is also complementation, to have all the implements available with the two tools I am carrying, so I always have:

- Scissors, preferably a big one for plastics, wrapping and thick stuff, and a small precise one for hygiene, paper cuts and small tasks
- Phillips driver (long) and a variety (two at least) of flatheads  :tu:
-  file, awl, SE blade, PE blade  :gimme:
- Pliers, always better if I have a blunter pair and a more precise, less strong but poitier style too   :salute:

oddly enough bottle opener, can opener, replaceable cutters, saw and hook/corkscrew are very rarely used so if I don't have them on my combo it's oftentimes not an issue at all
If I have redundancy of toolset (most likely) I don't care as long as the basics listed above are included in it  :)

This was the combo I've carried for 4 days in Berlin during my Holiday trip, having in it most of the implements I needed and could have used outside of a work environment



the longer blade of the Mora was ideal for food, on-the-go cooking and the smaller ones for tag cutting, bag opening, and mundane everyday stuff, also the openers came in very handy (used them on both tools!) due to the abundance of beers and alcoholic beverages to try out and experiment with!!  :D

My toys:

MTs: Surge (2x), Skeletool CX, Rebar, Blast, Fuse, Micra, Squirt (3x), Wave, Crunch, Mini, Spirit (2x), Pro Scout, MP700 (2x), Diesel, Powerlock, PowerPlier (2x), PocketPowerPlier, Blacktip , ST6 (2x), 5WR, A100

SAKs: Bantam, Executive, Ambassador, Minichamp, Classic Alox, Champion, Farmer, Explorer, Swisschamp, Golf Tool, Wenger Champ, EVO 52, Pocket Tool Chest

Great job guys.  Obviously discussion of your selections isn't a requirement here, but it does tend to get each of us thinking about combinations that may not have been considered.

Pics, regardless of accompanying discussion or not, are always welcome of course!!  :climber:

Oh, and thanks for the props guys, but I really don't deserve it, especially since I've been absent from the discussion for a couple of years!

 :D

Buried somewhere in this thread :D


I plan on starting another thread in the not too distant future. I've gotten rid of most of the tools I've owned, and was going to do a thread on the ones that survived numerous culls. Not just the what, but the why, and which items they pair well with. When I (eventually) get round to that thread, I'll take a whole new batch of pics.

Today’s combo is the same as others... Not a fan of SAK pliers hence why I also carry an MT... Preference is for those that are small and pocket friendly... No problem with redundancy if I can’t avoid it... MT sees more rotation than SAKs...

 :tu:

I frequently do the same--carry the tools I need in my SAK selection, and supplement that with a lightweight plier multi.  Truth be told, my use of a plier-based multi is very infrequent, but I use a SAK frequently, so this works out well, and I never feel like the SAK pliers are a necessity.  Many times for me that supplemental plier is the LM Mini.

 :oops: The photos that I thought were in this thread, aren't. They were in a different thread altogether, which got buggered up when Fartobucket broke all the links (and I pulled most of my pics from the site).  :-\

I believe your Rebar is knifeless (custom) correct?  Does the knife blade in the Swiss card suit your needs?

You are correct sir! ...Ze Rebar iZ knifeless....in a "Custom" or more appropriately called "Ghetto and anglegrinderfabulous" way.

As for the SwissCard, it has been hidden deep in my wallet for (I think) two years now, and it has been on planes as well, with no red flags, and it will remain that way too. The little knife in it, does an excellent job at what can be expected of a knife of its size, for me that usually involves letter or package openings. So far the SwissCard has served me extremely well and I have no complaints about it, and the quality  and fit & finish one can expect from Victorinox is all there as well.  :climber:



Kind regards,

MMR

I just messaged my wife, because I know she carries a Swisscard (not lite).  She says she's accidentally taken it on several flights as well with no questions asked.

This has been my summer "it is so smurfin hot I'm gonna wear the least amount of clothing as legally possible" EDC.



Vic Manager with toothpick instead of tweezers and a slightly modified SOG Crossgrip (Leatherman PS4 file instead of SOG file)

So far it has accomplished what it needed to :tu:
