Yeah he’s been around for a while. Has some good ideas and interesting tools sets. Likes doing bladeless and openerless alternatives….

 :iagree:

I find the "Foodie Carbon" especially interesting. Too bad Vic doesn't offer models with a fork.  Instead there's a slightly weird package opener  :rant: But Mikhov looks like a worthy tool supplier ...
Best regards and stay safe,

Yeah legit but his books have been closed for a while. I messaged him a year or so ago and never heard back. If you hear from him let us know. He’s got some good builds.

Too bad Vic doesn't offer models with a fork.

But they do, the 111 mm Cheese Master has a fork implement. It's quite narrow and was probably designed for hors d'œuvres and other small snacks, but it works very well in my experience and makes the Cheese Master the best picnic knife in Vic's arsenal (at least in my opinion).

Cheers,

Simon

Thanks for the correction, ST!

Didn't have the Cheese Master on my radar.

But of course I meant Victorinox doesn't have a fork in their 91 mm line  :whistle:

By the way, there is a pocketknife from Richartz that I'd consider a near perfect picnic knife. It can be separated in two parts, consisting of a knife and fork part with some other implements like caplifter and can opener. (RICHARTZ Solingen Taschenmesser Optima Picknick 7). There's also a version with less tools (Picknick 5) and a bigger version (Richartz Leo Picknick Olive).
Best regards and stay safe,

Wolfgang

With regard to picnic/hobo knives, there are some neat designs out there.  However, I’ve found that stainless steel or titanium camping utensil sets are a much better option.  They are generally more effective, less expensive, easier to clean, and weigh less than the picnic knife or hobo knife alternatives.

I agree a dedicated set is best if you go camping, but I wouldn't want to carry that around when going to a picnic or to the beer garden. My friends consider me eccentric enough as is :rofl:
