I took the 111 out for a spin for a few days in the woods and boy am I glad I did. After our recent 30DC I decided that it was too much knife for me, but that was me just doing laps between work and home. I'd become rather annoyed with the bottle opener, which was preventing me from quickly and easily accessing the innards of my bottles without putting up a fightBut I've been since been reacquainted with the OHO blade and put it to good use. This will be my go-to for outdoor adventures for the foreseeable future. Even though its more blade than I normally need, with cold slippery hands, the 111 was better than the 93. and that's an advantage.
Well, I bought a batch with a 111 in it, but I don't know what model it is yet. I'll try to remember to post pictures when it arrives and I find out what it is.
Nice score Jim! A Mariner!
It's not Wednesday, but I won another 111 on the bay, and boy am I excited to hold this one in my hand. Can't wait for it to come. (Image removed from quote.)
Nice score!I like my Skipper a lot. Fun to carry and that shackle wrench is good for awl sorts of stuff. I do wish there were a plain edge version, but I recognize the utility of a serrated blade in a boating environment. Congratulations on the win!
That was fast!
My son, the sailor, picked up one and tried it. He loved it except that when he needed to open it for work, the Trekker one hand opening blade would have been a whole lot better. Typically he is either wearing gloves, freezing, has one hand already occupied, or some combination of the above I have it upstairs. It's a beautiful knife.
