Need to add something else, and I know I will be in the minority in this place: I don‘t like 99.9% of G-Shock watches. Either too bulky, too busy, too hard to read, weird interface or all of that at the same time.
I don't know its an effect of COVID lockdown - but suddenly I'm back to not liking large blades again. This... after a recent romance with 111mm SAKs I was at an outdoor outfitter, and I saw the LM K2 in the flesh and decided it was way too big... I also saw a Mora Eldris, and decided that it was plenty enough blade for me.I'm so unlike myself.
Perhaps a new age wrinkle happened in the EB brain bank and you see a “less is more”? I too have become less of a fan of large blades, besides for camp activities, even the old griptillian blade feels to large. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I'm definitely different. I drive VW's, Subarus and Hyundais, pack whatever the mood strikes me to carry , and an into history and cooking. I barely fit in at work because I'm not even remotely near the mold most guys in my line of work are cut from, and enjoy a good cigar. It's the variety of really good people that makes me feel at home here! Plus one on Casino Royale btw!
I will add my two cents to this! A multitool where too much emphasis is placed on its weight. I prefer larger multitools. They just fit in my hand better, and I would rather have too many tools on one, then too few. I am not a minimalist! I guess I am a "maximalist!!" I just do not understand people complaining about the weight of a LARGE multitool they purchased, knowing its size and weight BEFORE they bought it, then carrying it in their POCKET!! All large multitools I have purchased came with a sheath you put on your belt. That is how the tool was designed to be carried! Also probably why a lot of larger multitools do not have pocket clips! So do not be a weenie! Be a MAN!! Carry the tool the way it was meant to be carried and stop your whining!!
Don't even get me started in the stupidity I see on Amazon reviews.
I assume you're referring to the ones in which the reviewer gives the product 1-3 stars because "I didn't realize how big/small/heavy it is" even though this information is readily available in the product description...
Okay my turn, some things they have going in theindustry I dont care for:-Pocket Prybars. I've had a few and they just seem like useless hunks of metal after the first few days of carry, no matter how many "wrench holes" or bottle openers they put on them.-Way Too Many Bottle Openers. Another trend that gets under my skin is I don't understand why they think you need a bottle opener on EVERY. SINGLE. MULTITOOL. That space could be used for something else. -Chinese Junk. Nuff said.- The current production Schrade Tough Tool deserves a slot of it's own that thing is an abomination
I have a pocket prybar that I have never used (if anyone want's to takea Griffin Pocket tool off my hands let me know)Your sentiments about the bottle opener... I share in terms of files. On (or under) my computer desk at this moment, I have three MTs with files. Now dont get me wrong, I have used a file for some very worthwhile tasks... At home.... where I have a choice of a zillion files.
The thing with most prybars is that the cutout for the bottle opener severely weakens the strength. Oh and if you're the kind of person to carry a prybar, you probably have a MT or SAK already for popping open that can. Personally the bottle opener on my SAK does both tasks rather well. No it can't do nails but then neither could my expensive Boker Ti pry bar which simply bent when shown a nail. It went straight into the garbage and I never bothered with a pry bar again.(Image removed from quote.)
Anyone who owns any unwanted pocket pry bars is welcome to send them to me. I promise to give them a good home.
