Cheap small tough, work knife

I was working under the sink the other day, replacing drain line and needed to chamfer and trim the old sch 40 drain pipe. All the knives I had handy were a bit too light, too sharp, not tough enough for me to feel comfortable cutting around on the drain pipe. Maybe not a folder, since I want no wiggle, and both small and cheap are good, like $10 or so.

Still a bit dim

PM me your address. I got the perfect knife for you I think. I don’t use it and it’s brand new in the box. Not even going to show you a picture, just going to send it to you. Smile

Did I ever mention that I was in need of a cheap, small, tough luxury yacht as well as a cheap, small, tough stash of gold bullion and, oh yeah, a cheap, small, tough tropical island?

Just sayin’…

Very generous toddcshoe!

Thanks Toddcshoe, PM sent. BTW buying a yacht is the cheap part, owning one the expensive part. (I have friends who live full time on a boat).

I second a Mora. We hardly bother with import knives here, except maybe cheap Chinese copies… Mora Robust or their “Electrician’s knife” maybe?

They have a whole lineup of construction knives and even chisels – but if those are too large for OP, there’s always their stubby [Eldris](http://morakniv.se/en/product/eldris/)

Awesome. Hope it will work for you. Knives are like a good pair of jeans, hard to find perfect ones. Hope it helps. Pass it on if it doesn’t work for ya.
