Beautiful knife. I looked far and wide for this knife with the 12C27 blade steel, but I could only find it with D2. Oh well, I can deal with it because the knife is so sweet looking.

My Future's So Bright...well, my flashlights are anyways.

Carried this nice little guy today.

Have a few I need to get rid of if anyone is interested. The wife has concluded that the amount of incoming knives has overcome the amount of outgoing. LOL

I won’t be asking anything close to new prices. PM for details if you want one or all. I’d trade them all for a Mecarmy PS14 in like new condition.

It’s a pretty good desing for sure. Its premium version with titanium/CF handle and S90V blade is on my wishlist too. Smile

Dammit. Did you have to remember me that I still have to finish the Tartan-Micarta scales for my Urban Trapper?!?
Too many other projects but I’ll finish them this month, or year, I promise Wink

The BM 940 gets the most pocket time of all my knives,

and the ZL SC62w has been carried every day for the last 6 years.

Today I got the upgrade for my beloved Ruike S11, which I carried for over a year on my keychain. Or two years? Anyway, it’s a fantastic little knife, but in EDC I often need more. So here’s the upgrade:

Looks almost the same, feels almost the same. Sanrenmu WA 622, OEM of Ruike (and Böker Tech Tool) knives. Got the S11 for $25 locally back then and the WA 622 for only $18!

The scissors are not the greatest, but they work. Glad I got it – this model is discontinued and seems to be sold out now in almost all stores.

I’ve tossed the idea around but I haven’t pulled the trigger. Maybe it’s time to try one.

Sanrenmu makes or has made a lot of this kind of tool. I still see a few self-branded models on their AliExpress store in addition to over a dozen models for Ruike. I don’t recall what steel Victorinox uses on their Swiss Army Knives but would I be right in guessing that Sanrenmu’s 12C27 is better?

(civilian) EDC nife upgrade for me too

Newer : the Fieldmaster

came with the standard red scales, but I changed them to some yellow “plus” scales (which include the small ballpoint pen)

Former : the Hiker which will serve as a backup

Flashlights, blades & beer

Just do it! It doesn’t cost much and is worth every cent.

Most of the small S1x / WA 6xx seem to be gone, some black still available (sold as “Mack Walker”). I would have preferred a brown or even orange one, but they’re gone forever. Not sure about the steel, but it should be better than Victorinox. It’s a knife for light tasks and for that it’s more than enough.

Victorinox uses 1.4110 (also known as AISI X55CrMo14) for blade steel.

The SRM PT721 with 12C27 blade steel is also an interesting alternative to a SAK if you’re looking for something slim & minimalistic:

That’s riveted, isn’t it? Is the “on sale” etched into the blade?!

The pivot seems adjustable, the rest is riveted.
The “On sale” logo on the blade is correct because I placed my order when it was on sale! Big Smile

I discovered some wicked looking carbon fiber choices so I made scales for two of my most recent EDC knives.

The Medford Praetorian Genesis T is now a C with Fat Carbon Dark Matter Gold on the presentation side. The ZT 0393 has a full slab of Carbon Fiber on the presentation side and an overlay on the lock side.

Love my Praetorian Dark Matter! Big Smile

Had to look it up, the ZT is also in a carbon fiber from Fat Carbon, that one is called Camo Gold.

Although those are not my type of knives, the work you have done on them looks superb, Dale!

Today, and for weeks now I’m back to carrying the mini bugout. It has unfortunately not the class and elegance that I like and that other knives do have, but it is simply the most functional EDC knife that I know of (not the least because it is usable for lefties like me), an extremely well thought-out knife.

Today’s EDC was a Boker Plus desert tan auto. Oh, and a SMKW Trash Panda Tinker by Victorinox.

Thanks Jos, it was a learning experience, did the ZT first and discovered what a mess it is grinding carbon fiber!

My Koenig Arius is still my favorite with the Mini Goblin a close second.

Got into the steel formula, the Medford is CPM 3V, I wear a fixed Blade Guardian 3 in Vanadis 4E that I like lot, it’s wharnie blade shape is great for general purpose daily use.

My problem with the Medford is that isn’t a flipper and I’m pretty hooked on a super smooth bearing operated flipper. My Arius is 204P and the Mini Goblin is M390, ultra smooth flippers from Koenig are addictive!

Dale, that Praetorian is a very nice looking slab of sharpened steel.

Is it really EDC if you carry something different each day? Silly

I always have my Victorinox Ranger, but the past month has seen it accompanied by a CRKT Pilar in HH red.

I was thinking about using this as a folding Sgian Dubh under the kilt while enjoying the neighborhood with some bagpiping.

Jokes aside, I actually have a colleage who’s doing that but to me it is as he’d hold a cat tucked under his arm with its tail in his mouth, alternately chewing and biting it, considering the sound and looks…

I EDC a knife. If it isn’t the same knife every day, I’m still EDCing a knife.
