Knifekits.com FL005 with purpleheart scales. It is my EDC, sharp, hard to dull and pretty( that does not help performance but makes me happy)

Sadly last weekend it went missing. So I might just order an FL009 and leave it stock.

I go with one of these puppies. Sometimes I carry one in my sock if I'm in Brighton and expecting a rumble

The Katana that is always across my back.

Duh.




(Actually, I find a nice pair of scissors best for opening bags of brew stuff)

I use a brown Spyderco Delica 4 ffg for cutting open boxes or bags of malt and my Victorinox Cadet for smaller tasks such as hop packets and yeast.

My Kershaw Blur is usually in my pocket. But I typically use a pair of scissors for opening bags of hops.

For a pocket knife it's either my SOG Stingray or William Henry that I've had for years (they don't make the model anymore, and I've forgotten which it was). Both have great steel for the blade (VG-10) and hold an edge for a very, very long time. I made the lanyard that's on the SOG, since it didn't come with anything for one.

There are things I open that I don't use the pocket knives for. Then I'm either using my Henckels scissors or the ones I got that are non-stick (Scotch brand).

I have a big knife I use for everything that doesn't require shootin'. I found it in my grandfather's shed after he died. From what I could find online, the blade is from a famous German Company, Gustav Emil Ern. It looks like he made the handle himself.

I use a pair of scissors. It's pretty badass.
