Homemade Scales

Hello,        I own a Victorinox Camper, and I had the thought that it would be quite cool to make my own scales to replace the standard red ones. I am a competent woodworker but quite inexperienced…Continue

I owned and used swiss army knives all of the time when I was a kid. In fact I think all of the kids did. Anyway, due to moving around a lot, god only knows where they went. I recently ordered myself "The Spartan" model. I chose this model specifically to handle taks I perform often: cutting, opening bottles, opening wine, the reamer for puncturing thick material and sometimes the can opener.

I miss having one of these handly little red knives and I look forward to owning one again.

So, I was just using my Victorinox super tinker yesterday at work, and a guy i work with came upto me and said "wow, you really use one of those?" after asking what he meant he said that he gave those up when he was in grade school. Now I love tactical folders more than the next guy, but i asked him if he could open a bottle of wine with his knife or screw in a screw. I love my victorinox.

Required Reading

There's a similar thread right now but it's bizarre and spammy. So. What, in your opinion, is required reading to be part of the human race? What is absolutely essential, whether it be philosophy, history, religion, or even classic fiction or poetry?See More
