    Hey Survivorman, Thanks very much for the kind words..
    The Alox SAK Companion maybe small but gets used a great deal in urban environments. Only complaint is it has to be removed when flying. That’s not the SAK’s fault though.
    The wallet was made by a US friend. He did both the wallet and stingray pouch for me. I’ve some other goodies from him and they are all exceptional quality hand made items.
    Your leather tool stand was very neatly done.
    Does that mean we will see more leather projects from you?
    Thanks for your folding saw testing and discussion.
    I’m sticking with my Laplanders.
    I know it doesn’t have the best cutting geometry but weight and cost are excellent plus the reliability it has shown after a long time thrashing adds the warmth of known reliability. Maybe if I had vasty increased wood to cut there could be a case to change but my needs are modest.
    On your Ganzo 720, were these some of the vids you’d seen before buying it?

    Thank you HF, i am trying to get some leatherwork done but time is an issue at the moment. The stitching and design of your leather items are pretty outstanding and that stingray pouch really is an eyecatcher. Your friend obviously has some serious skills. :frantic:

    I totally agree on the Laplander... It might not be the fanciest and most high tech saw but it sure is reliable and proven gear. It's kinda the w123 diesel of folding saws. :D

    Those videos also have been on my Ganzo watchlist, yup. I think i watched every Ganzo 720 video available :D as i am a youtube addict. :eek:

    Actually the thing was so light and unassuming that I’d forgotten it was around my neck. Had even slept with it yesterday. Comfortable, capable and a super bit of kit IMHO.

    HF’s Sykco 511 120216
    Two things I did that positively transformed the Sykco 511 for my use. Firstly, I reprofiled the edge to a leaner convex and also blended the epoxy (or whatever corrosion protection gunk) away from the edge bevel. Secondly, after an ugly bloody kiss from the choil, I blunted it.

    Hi BC,
    I guess so virtually speaking.
    But in this COVID-19 world no RL travel envisaged for a while. :-(
