Is punctuality truly a gentlemanly trait?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Josh Jul 19, 2012. 55 Replies

Josh replied to Matt's discussion Swiss Army Knife
"I do so, too. Years ago I attend a client of mine to his judicial hearing and I forget about my swiss army knife in my pants pocket. So the alert of the safety testing began to warn the security guards of the court. Kind of a funny situation. The…"

Joseph replied to Matt's discussion Swiss Army Knife
"Been carrying one every day since around 1982.  Victorinox.  I feel half-naked if I mistakenly leave it at home (happens about two or three times a year). They keep chancing the names and features:  Explorer, tinker, super…"

Shawn R. Coleman replied to Matt's discussion Swiss Army Knife
"I've carried a mini-SAK on my keychain everyday since I was 17 years old (more than 20 years now). It's a Victorinox and has a blade, a file and scissors. It's a very high quality tool that I use daily for small tasks, opening…"

Oddball replied to Matt's discussion Swiss Army Knife
"I never leave home without one, but I go for the Victorinox brand because the steel is harder. It takes longer to sharpen, but the edge stays longer. Wenger are also good, but the steel (IMHO) is softer, therefore easier to sharpen in a hurry, but…"

Steve Pierce replied to Matt's discussion Water Bag Owners in the group Man Bags
"I was leaning towards the large bag anyhow, this just sort of reinforces that decision. I really want a bag that can hold several days worth of clothes and think that too big would be better than too small. Thanks again for the great review."

Brian Splash replied to Matt's discussion Water Bag Owners in the group Man Bags

Steve Pierce replied to Matt's discussion Water Bag Owners in the group Man Bags
"Brian, Great review. Just curious if you ever used the waterbag in a backpack configuration? I'm trying to decide between the medium and the large bag and saw that the large back can't be configured as a backpack. I was just wondering if…"

Charles replied to Matt's discussion Swiss Army Knife
"I like the leatherman better myself. I used to carry the Swiss Army until the leatherman knives got affordable. I also carry a benchmade folding clip knife and a Springfield 1911."

Michael M. replied to Matt's discussion Swiss Army Knife
"I do carry the mini Swiss Army in my front pocket, but I also conceal a rather horrifying pair of fighting knives on my belt. The Mini Swiss has all I need for utility: nail file, scissors, tweezers, a toothpick, and a small blade for the simplest…"
