Several years ago, I inherited my mother's SAK when she passed away. She had this for decades.. since the 80's and was my first introduction to being prepared and EDC. It rode in her purses over the years. As such, it in fairly decent condition..... minus the dust, dirt and purse grime. For what I hope is obvious sentimental reasons, I am never using it.... unless dire life and death and heavens forbid, I can't reach the myriad of other knifes, leathermans, toolbag, etc... That all said, what say you about cleaning the gunk out and giving it a proper maintenance job? While I don't plan on using it, I certainly see passing it along when my time comes.
