I've carried a blue Style PS for a couple years now. Over the weekend I modified it, adding the pink scales and knife blade from a BCA Style CS. I love it!
I was a die hard Leatherman fan for years, but now, I can't stop carrying my Swisstool. I still love Leatherman's stuff, but this one just woks perfectly for my needs.
None at the moment, unfortunately. I just have to wait for my Victorinox Deluxe Tinker to arrive, it's gonna be my EDC multitool
Wenger Realtree Blaze 13 and Wenger Realtree Blaze 55.
Victorinox Cadet Swiss Army knife
"Super Cadet" with Wenger scissors, and a Squirt PS4
This is what I'm carrying for now.
This is a multitool manufactured by a Swedish company called Asaklit. (Go on have a good laugh )
They're now discontinued but used to be stocked by a Swedish company called Clas Ohlsen and were very cheaply priced. They're UK-legal as none of the tools lock. I carry one in the car. There's a tiny light on the handle too.
My glove compartment car kit:
Maxpedition admin pouch and flashlight sheath.
And contents. The three white things wrapped in cling film to the left of the 18650 battery are compressed cloth towels. A few drops of water and they expand into handy wet cloths. The CR123 battery is a spare for my EDC torch. The Lumapower Incendio V3.
where can you buy s30v blades from?
comeonbabylightmyfire, I don't quite know the ins and outs of UK Knife laws, but if they're just worried about a locking knife blade, but don't really care if the tools lock, you ought to check out the new Gerber MP-600 Bladeless. It's just like a standard MP-600, but with a removable/replaceable Rem-Grit Saw instead of a knife blade. And to make up for the missing knife, you could just get a Spyderco Pingo, or UK Pen Knife. Hope this helps a bit.
I can't speak for DW but try searching the seller "texastoolcrafters" on the bay. I bought replacement blades from them before. They sometimes sell HC, 154CM, S30V and even Damascus blades for Wave/Charge LM multi-tools. Good luck.
I never thought anything could replace my black Swisstool, but this little guy has slowly become my new favorite:
The GB mini is kinda like a multitool as well imo. It's not only a hatchet, it also makes a great knife on a stick and a hammer to boot
I wholeheartedly agree with you on that. With some practice, and a steady hand, a good axe can be used for a myriad of camp tasks and can excel at them. While I would have its shortcomings in aspects like gutting fish, the number of tasks that it excels at, outweigh its shortcomings. If I could have only one tool, it would be a small hunters axe, and I would feel confident with it and not in any way unprepared. Add to that your Swisstool, and well, you've go it made buddy!
Ok, now I'll have to try gutting a fish with it, haha.
Besides doing a lot of garden work and a bit of whittling I also peeled about a kg of potatoes with it this weekend and it actually did pretty well to my surprise. It is a really small hatchet though, the head weighs about half of that of a regular small hatchet. I'm not all that handy with axes and hatchets normally but this one has worked out great so far. It's so well balanced and easy to handle, not to mention easy to carry (it fits in the rear pockets of my jeans!). I was looking for a big knife as well for camping/backpacking bt I don't think I have a need for one any more.
The Spirit is pretty awesome as well. It took a little getting used to after carrying a regular Swisstool for more then a year but it is more comfortable to use and easier to pocket so I have it with me more often. And the actual tools aren't even that much smaller as I initially thought.
