    Okay, enough with the crazy stamps and the Ukraine color combos and Ukraine relief funds ! How about a classic piece with a spin core in it to change the mood ?

    Been on my key for 10 years or so. The blue is worn off the bead but scratches and dings are hard to photograph.

    Like everything else here....

    I own too many knives (stuff) to not have many collecting dust..

    I'm a collector and user. Many shelf queens. [​IMG]

    Yes, they get used. Peter's tools hold up very well to use. I've carried many in rotation for a long time. Unless they are anodized titanium, they don't show serious scratches or wear. I prefer unstamped and plain vanilla if titanium. I have a few colored ti beads that show little or no wear. His steel tools may get a tiny rust spot now and then, but usually just the oil off of your hands rubs it away.
    Like expensive knives, carrying a small pocket tool like these that can be worth hundreds of dollars on the secondary sounds foolish to some, but when you realize just how tough they are, they become second nature tossed into the pocket or in a bag. Hanging on a keyring, they would see slight rub marks after a while.

    Yes, yes and yes.
    Certainly not every one every day but same as … same as knives.
    My finger tips and nails are definitely better off because of it.
    Hey, as HuLM says it's much like expensive knives. Why use a Sebenza like folder when an Opinel is lighter and has a better slicing geometry? Tool use choices involve many variables.
    Horses for courses and preference play their part for mine.
    Do I have more than absolutely needed, OK sure but one has to try and find out which is best. That's a fun part of edc-ing.
