    Anti, is that a grappling hook next to the pry bar? If yes, have you had cause to use it much? Just curious. :)

    Nope, never used it in earnest, but it's very relaxing to put it together at the desk. :rofl:

    Not fair! The DHL sticker means it is being delivered by DHL? AFAIK DHL handles customs for you and you pay the VAT on delivery? Is USPS Priority Mail delivered by DHL in Germany?

    I like the "EXTREMELY URGENT", "Please rush to addressee": Pen emergency at Anti's! :rofl:

    It's a limited run, so I took tracked and insured Express Mail. :)

    Paid off, as I did not have to pay customs. :giggle:

    Japp, delivered by DHL, without any custom cost, if I did not mention already. :D

    DHL is owned by Deutsche Post and handles their parcels, while the normal postman does the letters, small non-tracked parcel stuff, etc.

    Thx C. :)

    I even got the chance to use the file on my PST II to make the neck of the Medium Fisher Refill fit. :D

    Nearly had a minor heart attack this morning. My second Alox Bantam was missing. The one that is not in the nightstand as a Haribo Backup Opener. The one that came all the way from China to keep me company and make me happy. AWOL, Gone! :help: No more till death do us part! :eek:

    After 5 minutes of panicky search at the usual places, I remembered that I had given the knife to my Dad for his birthday some 4 weeks ago. I'm getting old too. :giggle:

    Made me take some pics of the one I still have. :D

    I have been carrying this old Cellidor Version for more than 20 years in my blue collar outfit, and it never has let me down. Probably my only knife, that knows real, honest work. :)
