    It's a Pioneer Alox. I like it. Never owned SAK before, they always seemed cheaply made... Not this one. Nice polished blade/implements. Excellent fit and finish. Great snap, I especially like that. DSCN0440.JPG DSCN0438.JPG

    I need to vacuum my keyboard, uck...

    I like that blue. Looks like a good everyday use pocket knife.

    My dad used to buy me the real small swiss army knives...every few years he'd just have a new one in his pocket for me. He did that right up until he passed and I was in my 50s. Kind of weird, but I liked it. Oddly, I never lost any of the previous knives, but usually passed them on.

    I wish they would make a Stratocaster edition with the Allen keys for for saddles and neck upper truss rod, Phillips head drivers for pick guard screws, trem claw and neck bottom truss rod, nut files, feeler gauges for neck setups etc.

    I have not been without one since I got one for a graduation gift on 1973. I lost that sometime 2002, and replaced it with another, which I still have. ALWAYS in my pocket, even if I nave another "real" knife elsewhere.

    My Mrs, being a techie, always carried a Swiss Army Knife in her sizable pocketbook.
    She was called to Jury Duty, and the security screeners confiscated it, telling her to stop and pick it up at the day’s end - she went to get it back and of course it was nowhere to be found.
    She bought a new one but doesn’t carry it anymore.
