    Thanks for the family pic and the vintage ads! The PFM is on my “maybe one of these days” list.

    - Head has a bi directional ratchet and lock function
    - Stored bit sizes are printed on the handles
    - Plastic construction for light weight :)
    - Positive detent handle positions
    - Bit locked / detented in bit mount
    - 8 Bits included in purchase price
    - Extra low price of < 2$

    I bought it from Leroy Merlin some years ago. Initially thought it was toy value only but it actually works OK on light duty.
    I had a look at LeroyMerlin.it but they have nothing listed at all under "CrownRich"
    AliExpress has a CrownRich store but they don't seem to have that plastic fantastic multi tool in their inventory.

    Ha, so it seems super rare so maybe it's collectible! lol :)

    This was my first knife purchase years ago. It’s a great knife, super light and capable

    Agreed K4S. Mine had a rather rubbish edge but I reset them to 17° per side (34° inclusive). Now it's a capable light cutting tool that weighs effectively 3/5ths of 5/8ths of F--K all.

    Is that a JETBeam RRT-0? If so, I assume you’re running 1xAA? I have an RRT01 running an 18500. It’s a fun light that usually lives on my nightstand.

    Spot in T63, it is indeed an RRT-0 running a LI 14500. It's an oldie but a goodie. Still has some neat features even by today's standards.

    HF's Brisa Kephart Kit 031222

    Still some way to go though! …
    Pass scale holes for correct fastener fit as supplied undersize.
    Trial fit fasteners, handle liners and scales.
    Flush & finish ricasso portion of handle scales and liners
    Prep blade handle part via rough up and mask.
    Trial fit blade with fasteners, handle liners and scales.
    Glue, fit fasteners, fit lanyard tube and clamp, then let cure.
    Cut and flush off fasteners and lanyard tube.
    Sand handle to desired finish.
    Clean off masking and any remaining gunk.
    Maybe finish with hand rub on blade with abrasive paper &/or Scotch-Brite™️
    Apply oil to handle (linseed or maybe Danish oil)

    BTW the sheath looks and feels sweet.
