Due to a childhood accident with a folding knife I became a fixed blade only person since. I’ve never found much a small fixed blade couldn’t do and I carried one up to the Army, in the Army, and every day since. In truth, a knife IS a multi-tool if you are willing to beat on it enough.
Thru a kasetorganic.com, I recently ended up with an early, red Alox farmer. I had no idea the Farmer was one of the best loved models. But I can agree it’s a great one. The tiny SAK’s appear like toys to me, and the ones with a Folding Knife Farmer widgets on it seem like they belong in a glovebox. I added a “clip draw” so I can clip it to my pocket, and started toting it around. My intention was to give it a try and I didn’t expect a lot of it.
My surprise is that the saw is incredible, the knife blade is very easy to put a super sharp edge on, and the awl is an incredible fire steel striker.
