What's up with you guys who are "thinking about it?"  How do you expect to make bad life decisions if you consider risks ahead of time?  :pok:

Been thinking :pok: :D about what I might carry :think:

I have a few different configurations thought up and might swap the knife/knives out as the month goes on but this should get me through the month :woohoo:

(Image removed from quote.)

Only if I want to get ran off site  :whistle: I think I actually do have one of those from many years ago :think: My dad had bought a kit where you build a tiny house out of tiny brick. We built it and it was fun but took forever :ahhh Then I ended up using the tiny trowel and some more small tools for my groomsman cake on my wedding day :D been so many years ago now though I am sure I would never find it :facepalm:

I've made a few changes myself. :like:
I'll carry my 5" knipex plier-wrench, unless the 6" that I ordered comes in time. Man, do they grip.  :cheers:

Scratch that. Three weeks later, my package has not been picked up. amazon does not know where it is, DHL does not know where it is, and I've waited three weeks for nothing. :cheers:

It's so good! :like:
Much beefier than the 4 inch. Great small and medium combo. I think I'll carry both. :cheers:

I've been playing with the new Pliers Wrench XS. It is an excellent unit. From a usability perspective, I think the Pliers Wrench scaled down better than the Cobra (mind you, you can't really go wrong, here).

I've seen the 4" Cobra and Plierwrench. The Cobra is a little too small for my hands. The Plierwrench handles are even shorter, so I doubt it'll work for me. The 125mm Plierwrench is great for a small size, and the 6" is excellent for a medium size. I may also get a larger model, to have all bases covered.

Regardless of size, because of its design, the Pliers Wrench has mechanical advantage coming out of its ears.

I have very large palms, and I find the Pliers Wrench XS more comfortable than the Cobra XS. That said, I keep the next size up in my bag, because the jaws are basically the same size, but the handles are longer.

I really like the 6" plier wrench, so I will go big again, and get maybe the 250mm or something. I need a sheath for it, or maybe squeeze it in the Vanquest, because that thing is not going in a pocket. "Is that a 6" plier wrench in your pocket... No, just the XS."

Just like Knipex pliers, we could use you. :salute:

How...ribald.






(Obviously I'm joking about the ribald thing, but any excuse to use "ribald" in a conversation is a good excuse.)

And now I'm waiting for the 6" Cobra pliers to arrive. ::)
I've been impressed by the Plier wrenches. I will get the 10" one at some point. But for now, I ordered the 6" Cobra. The 4" is nice, very small footprint, and it grips beautifully. Still, a little too small and thin for big jobs, and I felt that the 5" would be very similar, so I ordered the 6" to pait it with the 6" Plier wrench. Should be here soon. :D

6” is definitely a good size, having 4”, 5” and 7” in varying models, I’m thinking the 6” pliers wrench would be the perfect addition at some point

I fixed up a mixer tap using just the Cobra XS a few months back and was amazed that’s all I needed but it is a bit small for anything more

The 6" Cobra arrived yesterday so I am set for pliers.


I'll try a new configuration with the Vanquest pouch and see what will go in for January.

The first scissors I was mentioning are a bust :whistle: They won't cut anything :facepalm: :rofl:

I think I may take the scissors out of a Swisscard and put something over the end to keep them closed and pocket carry those  :think:

Little over 3 weeks away now til start time :ahhh
