    Can
    cant yet, got 1 million jobs to do at home - babies, wives and dogs fill your time up, along with a suddenly leaking shower...

    Anyway, will get some food and put pics up tonight. Hopefully will get it sent out again tomorrow as my wifey can post it for me!

    I onened it at work though. Oh my, it's like a treasure trove! Even saw a couple of things I put in the first round too :)

    Until later, sorry!

    Well, here we are!

    [​IMG]

    Three pouches, which will go on work belts. The first fits my leatherman wave perfectly, the second fits my MUT (just!), third will fit a selection of knives I can rotate.

    The SOG Flash II is one I put in the original passaround, so I feel it's come home. I was just talking to a friend this morning about wanting a new work knife, and this appears. Saves me forking out for a benchmade barrage I was eyeing up... For now :p

    The opinel I shall set aside for my son when he's old enough to be trusted with a knife. I've always liked them, and feel it will make a nice 'first knife' gift.

    The alox SAK shall drop into my daily carry rotation most likely. Always wanted one too but never got round to buying one. I think they make a lovely 'dress' knife for more formal occasions.

    The 2 d rings will go on collars I make for my dogs

    Last, the light is a 1AA, 3 mode trustfire. I rather like it, so am swapping it for one of my other 1AA lights. This will go in my pocket for my second job.


    There's a metric ton of gear in this box, and some truly unique items. I would really like to thank everyone for the effort they have put in to this, it's like Christmas when you realise 'the box' has arrived!

    Cheers :)

    I put the opinel in. I feel honoured to have given the "first knife" for your son.
    Receiving a "first knife" is a special moment for a kid. I remember getting my first knife from my grandfather.

    Thankyou! It will be a while before he gets it, but I want to start amassing things like this for him now and get a good collection for him :)

    Thanks! I thought it looked new. I like it, high mode is good and bright, and it throws far enough for my needs too :)

    The silver Alox Pioneer came from me. It is hardly used, only been in my pocket a few days. I got it because my colored Alox got scuffed and the silver one is more resistant to scuffs. But, after a few days I found a sheath and went back to black Alox. Hope the silver one serves you well. ;)

    The leatherman sheath and flash 2 is from me. I took the flash 2 in the first round and it was an amazing knife to use, but I did not feel it worked for me. I used it to open the box when it arrived to me, and it got some sticky stuff on it. I got most of it off, but did not have the first to get it all off as I wanted to send the box out asap.

    Sorry, only just seen this!

    The sheath is perfect on my belt, and I've cleaned up the flash 2. I'm still not sure about it as a knife, but I shall persevere with it I think! It's very light, and may serve as a backup. I forgot how scary sharp I can get it too... :p

    Box came today, it's in quite a state and had a small hole in the corner... I'm surprised it arrived at all. I wonder if it had been dropped or worse, kicked on it's way. Judging by how packed it was I'd be surprised if anything is missing though. Some neat stuff in there.

    Here's my take.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/63685679@N02/13602435385" title="Untitled by Simon_Knight73, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7019/13602435385_f1f8508639.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="Untitled"></a>

    Fox compass. I've never used one like this and it's too much of a neat gadget to pass up. Now to learn how to use it properly.
    Felco SAK in a sheath. It's a SAK...
    Barkleys mints. The dogs chose this actually, but I dont think they'll be getting any...
    Neat Belgian coin from Tranx. I don't know why but I love coins with holes in.

    I'm at work tonight so I'll see if I can find a replacement box, or at least something to shore it up for the last few journeys. Got the next recipients address so will hopefully get it sent tomorrow or saturday.

    There were no holes in it when I posted it!

    Glad it got to you safe though, and nice choosing the compass. I nearly did myself, but I already have a similar one :)

    The corners were looking a bit tatty when it arrived to me so I added tape to try strengthen them. It did not work :(

    The box has been re-boxed and is now on its way to the next recipient. Its a big heavy box still so may need re-jigging or a severe paring down.
