Kahz ,I have to agree with gatekeeper ,the juice is fantastic , I saw it for the first time yesterday and couldn't resist ! Ted is correct in it not having lock blades but that doesn't bother me, I have carried SAK's for years without self inflicted amputation and don't intend to start now! Until ye...

Not sure that I would use the "bead chain" -had too many of that type of keyring break on me - always got too much in my pocket for it to snag on ! depends on how careful you are . I would rather use a piece of thin cord (3 milimetre or so) and use a surgeons knot to make the loop (basically a doubl...

Hi Krazikurtis
I have heard of a number of of people that have broken the tips of their civilians , but in nearly all cases some twisting was involved ,as long as the blade is not twisted or used as a pry-bar it seems pretty strong Hence my saying CAREFULLY !

Hi , Boye dent is easily added using a cut off wheel in a dremel , followed by a sanding drum then some elbow grease and waterpaper , just be careful not to remove too much metal or else the blade won't close !- then you have to remove some material from the handle ! I have just recently modified my...
