A Felix Immler trick for the hook:

A little magnet can be stowed in the hook--useful for retrieving a dropped screw, improvising a compass, or, in my case holding a small fishing fly....

Magnet (3mm x 2mm thick):

Matterhorn - like a DT, but with the 60% serrated main blade.

But okay, I’ll smack you with this:

All my used Matterhorns were bought at used DT prices.  ;)

So, i was in a bit of a picture mood today...

Here's the DT with two of my favorite WWII fighter planes, the RAF's Supermarine Spitfire (the most beautiful plane ever made IMO) and the Luftwaffe's Focke-Wulf 190  :salute:




Here's the DT with two of my favorite lighters that belonged to my father, 40's Ronson Princess (fluid) and 60's Ronson Varaflame (butane)  :salute:

Wow, those lighters just brought back memories of youth. Thanks. Also, I love aircraft. Cool pics.

Nice!  That Tradesman is sweet! I like the clipped blade on it. And the pliers look like they have a wider jaw set.

First swiss army knife I bought for myself was a Super Tinker back in the 1980's. When I practically destroyed it in the job in 2011 or so, my boss (and friend and mentor) gave me a Tinker Deluxe to replace the old one.

Even though it came with the hook, it still is a fine knife and holds a special place in me heart. I've been pocketing mine for weeks now. ( that was actually the first time I personally had ever seen the hook on a SAK).

Sorry, I dont think I have any pics of mine.

Yep, love that thing. Not only because it was my father's but also because it's one of the most stylish lighters ever

Here's mine on the shore of Flathead Lake. Mine doesn't get carried too often. I love it, but it has evolved into my "recliner knife." It lives on the small coffee table next to my recliner to handle all of the duties that arise when something needs cutting or fixing.

If anyone wants to carry a Micro SD with your DT, you can...
Just a little mod:
