Love my box cutters. I carry one in each vehicle with a set of blades. Can never go wrong there but of course I have my EDC and possibly a multi-tool on me if the occasion calls for it.

I have a Benchmade 940SBK - (owned for many years, been washed, dropped)
Easy to open and close - do not need to think about it.

CRKT Graham Stubby Folding Razel with the Ram Horn Handle (Bought it because it looked cool)
Very stout and semi-hard to open and close.... not easy to do with one hand.

CRKT M16-12ZE E.R. - Tanto - Orange Handled (now my new daily carry)
Easy to open and semi-complex to close... right now, learning to close it... taking two hands to close!
But it is still a very cool knife, has the window punch to bust out windows and a seatbelt cutter.

a Sebbie, TM11 and Atwood Prybaby - you are a sick man ! (with good taste)


my Atwood Cookie Wrench lives in my pocket every day - they are beautiful tools.
i would love to own a Sebenza - i had the choice and went with the slightly more lefty friendly Spyderco ATR TI and they are too hard to import into Oz now though

Recently gifted to me by my brother - this is a Bajau "Tanto".

I live on the island of Borneo, and this was crafted by a Bajau (external link) third-generation smith, who probably copied designs from samples left behind by the Japanese army after WWII. The blade is about 12", made from a truck spring, and the wood is Sepetir.

The blade has a rough finish, but overall the knife feels very sturdy.

Is that a Tiny monster in the background? Nice Atwood, but no beads with tritium? :lol:

that is a Tiny Monster, but even better is the HID 65w Magic Scorpion next to it, a monster of a light for about the same price.

That Atwood is only one of a few pieces of his that I have, including a whistle.

I do need some beads, but what is tritium? Is that a glow button?

Tritium - in the EDC sense generally refers to a pressurized glass vial coated on the inside with a phosphor and pressurized with a radioactive isotope of hydrogen (H3 or tritium)
They are used for night sights on guns, (trijicon, meprolight etc) as glow markers on watches (Traser, Luminox etc) and keyring fobs.
They glow constantly, and without charging for years, tritium has a half life of 12 years, so after 12 years the glow will be one stop dimmer, 24 years=2stops (or quarter of the original brightness)
They are safe to use, as the radiation is stopped by the glass vial, and if the vial were to break the radioactive component would rapidly disperse
If you had big tubes and were trying to inhale the contents you may do some damage to yourself, but it would take a great deal of effort.

A lot of people add them to their flashlights too - McGizmo used to mount them in the tailcap button of his piston drive lights, it really helps to find a light in the darkness

The tubes can be tiny or huge, the ones in my watch are maybe 1.5mm x 3mm
The typical flashlight mounted size is 1.5 x 6mm
Keyring ones are normally 3x 35ish mm
And emergency exit signs sometimes have massive tubes, 5or so mm thick and a few inches long

Where Do I get more information on that magic scorpion? (EDCforums, BLF, or CPL ?)

That's a few UKPK (I think) how about sharing them around ?

I certainly recognize the Delica4 Endura4 and Manix2 Paramillie and Dragonfly a all awesome knives.

I wish I had bought a Manix before Australian Customs started seizing all one hand knives

Dude, where!? From what I've seen on /r/knives these are pretty expensive. My collection grown fast recently so I want something like this so bad.
