A New Pocket Knife

Well, I pulled the trigger. I finally bought a new pocket knife. I have been carrying the same knife for about 10 years. Still a good knife but I decided to upgrade. This is my old one.


Like I said a good knife. It has a good blade, a nice awl, flat screwdriver, and a can opener. What more do you need? A saw would be nice. So here is my new knife.
We shall see how it works. If it is a piece of crap I will let you know. So far I have used it to make feather sticks to start my wood burner. It worked good. The handle is a little wider than my other pocket knife, which I like. The price was right, about 20 bucks shipped. I will run it through the gauntlet, just like all of my other gear.

Where did you buy it?

I typed in a search on Amazon and got a Chelsea Watch match.They still have 6 left for 17 bucks + shipping.

The saw was a definite plus. I think I use that more than the knife.

Thanks. I have had a cadet model for many years. I have never seen the Farmer model before so I ordered one as the saw is well worth having.

I bought it on eBay for $21, postage included to me in Toronto.

Glad I could help. 21 bucks is a good price.

barnislavia, my Victorinox Farmer arrived - very nice and not too large. Thanks for the idea. Dan

You are welcome Dan. Hope you enjoy it. I have used mine on several projects, and it has performed well.
