Of all my stockmen, Case peanut, and other knives, these are the ones I kept for use in my so called golden years. It just made more sense to me at this stage of my life. I used to be a die hard dedicated knife person, including my love of the peanut small jackknife. But I got tired of all the keychain screw drivers and stuff. It's just easier to drop a SAK in a pocket and be ready for those small emergencies that life drops in our path. It's too bad it took me a lifetime to learn and develop a pragmatic attitude. If I think about it, I regret all the money and time I spent on knife collection and the time wasted. If I could do it all over, I'd just have had that SAK I bought in 1969, and stopped at that. Thinking back I never had need of any of the following; Fast draw with my knife. I never needed a knife faster than I could pull out a regular pocket knife and open the blade. A lock on a blade. I guess growing up in the 1950's, I learned to just use the knife right and cut with it. What was invaluable to me was; a screw driver about a zillion times. It's amazing what you can fix if you can just get into it. Remove a cover/housing, or just tinker and finagle it a bit. Carrying a paper clip in the wallet for a bit of strong wire is a good thing.
