I've not carried my Spirit in an age.  Not because I don't think it's one of the best MTs ever made, just that it doesn't meet "reason free" carry UK knife laws.

Would any law enforcement go out of their way to give you grief for carrying it Gareth?  I know we typically don't go looking for things like that here unless the person is going out of their way to draw attention to themselves.

Fantastic review of the Spirit XBS.
And also a great survival item tip: cellulloid guitar picks are quite flammable.

  Go a Swisstool Spirit, with the rectangular serrated blade. Same tools as the Spirit X has save the blade change. Was going to send the Spirit X to a leathercrafter in Texas to make a special holder for it with dragon scale looks.

  The blade looks like it could be used to spread stuff over bread or toast quite easily. And after work I decided I wanted to take the old streering wheel cover off cause that thick rubber was getting too hot to handle. Didn't know if this blade could handle it. It cut right through that old rubber like it was paper! Was quite impressed. Only bad thing is when it comes to sharpening it. Not overly experienced sharping serrated with the Triangle Sharpmaker.

  And... I like the brownish colored nylon holder too. The leather one I had with the Spirit X is getting wimpy and flimsy at the belt loop area. Thin leather... :ahhh

I've had similar experience with mine.  That blade performs way above expectations.  Sharpening it is something I haven't had to do yet.

Victorinox serrated blades are great, I don't have it on the Spirit but on an 08 Soldier. Which I believe is the same step of serration. The sharpening is pretty easy with the Victorinox dual sharpener pen. I don't use the ceramic "X" part but the grey one. Firstly sharpen only at the side where the serrations are cut. Blade at appropriate angle and put one "tooth" of the serration in the groove. Draw the knife across the sharpener without that tooth leaving the groove. Repeat 2-3-4 times per tooth until you get the hole blade. Then turn the knife and stroke the other side 2-3 times as you'd sharpen a standard knife. That's it.

Gorgeous!!

So are these Belgium military issue?

A swisstool was displayed in 2017 with a sign saying that it belonged to the Belgian military.
