everything from solid steel, to brass and
Nice knife!



Knobs look OK too

I've tried the polish thing (yes, my wife is polish) but the fingerprints drive me nuttier than I already am. Too bad 'cause it sure looks awesome!

I hate the Swizz, especially because they make so much nice stuff.
Or bra-s.
Admit i use gloves (on the knobs, not the bra-s), every fingerprint is a Polakking

Ya, real nice quality dem swiss 'army' knives. I used to love them.

I turned mine in years ago for the leatherhead. Rougher around the edges but a bit more useful.

Let's not get started on knives.
I used to be in the survival frenzy, did telescopic SS Nunchaku's at 18.(which really hurt your head when you mess up during practicing) Also made Rambo knife clones, oh dear.
And then there was awdiau ! (ok, plus bow and arrow shooting when i get tightbutted)
Leatherman's are cool, not to mix up with leathermen

Messing is brass.

To get the nice tight feel from a knob (ok, I too can see this sounds unfortunate), simply use sealed bearings. From most manufacturers, the dessignation suffix is -2RS. If you want a real nice feel with a heavy knob, simply use a pair of bearings, or even 3.

Oh, and btw, hello from Lykke, we just had a small party at his place yesterday, but he can't go online due to computer issues.
