That would be an ideal sail boat knife. Cut your rope, clean your fish, and open the wine...

I'm doubled up on corkscrews today and I ain't even drinkin' no wine.


I almost always have this in my left pocket...It's my "city" multi-tool. Much preferred over a SAK simply because the pliers come in handy so many times.

Al Mar Mini Sert

I've had this for close to 10 years, carry it daily at work. The company I purchased it from put the serrated edge on it. Always wanted a mini SERE, just found out they are making them now!

I like that boot knife. I've been out of the pocket pistol game for a while. I didn't realize Sig was making SA autos...at least it looks like an SA....1911 even.

Today I have my oldish Benchmade mini-AFCK. I bought this before the turn of the century because I was looking for an American made Spyderco type knife. Back then, all Spydies were made in Seki-City. The AFCK is very high quality, but those little Al discs on the scales are complete junk. They quickly scuff up and fall out. Easy to see why BM stopped using them.

Hmm, never had a problem with the discs on my AFCK:



Still one of my first go-to's for a hard user

Not all the Spydies were Seki at the time. I got this "Renegade" a few months before the AFCK:

That looks like the knife from the movie SWAT. The one the bad guy killed the guy in the restaurant with.

Beat me to the punch. Of all the Benchmades and Microtechs I've owned, this is still my favorite. Not long ago, the screw that holds the handle on, towards the butt of the handle, stripped out. I've got to send it back to Benchmade for repairs. I just haven't gotten around to it. The good news is, I have back ups.....

That's good to hear, but it is a pretty common issue with their older knives. Great knife though, I agree.

If anyone who can legally carry an auto is looking for an inexpensive EDC, this is a screaming deal. I've got the even smaller version, and the speed, lockup, quality, etc. is amazing for the price. And it's not made in PR China, but Taiwan.
